Publisher's Summary

The unseen assailant attacked Dr. Miranda Jones outside her Maine home as she returned from a busy lecture tour. After terrorizing her with a knife held to her throat, he stole her purse, slashed her tires, and disappeared.

Shaken and bruised, Miranda was determined to put the assault out of her mind, and welcomed the distraction offered by a summons to Italy to verify the authenticity of a Renaissance bronze of a Medici courtesan known as The Dark Lady.

However, instead of cementing Miranda's reputation as a leading authority in her field, the bronze nearly destroys it when her professional judgment is called into question, and the bronze is declared a hoax.

Desperate to restore her credibility and prove The Dark Lady is really a previously unknown work of Michelangelo, Miranda turns to Ryan Boldari, a seductive - and supposedly reformed - art thief. For Miranda, forced to rely on herself and a partner with his own hidden agenda, the only way home is filled with treachery, deception, and a danger that threatens everything she loves.

    "A fun thrilling mystery with some art and sex."

    A strong principled but introverted heroine finds herself forced to work with a dashing, rambunctious thief in order to unravel the mysterious art thefts and forgeries surrounding her.
    In my opinion this is one of Roberts's best novels: no supernatural stuff, nothing too gory or dark, and what it does contain is wonderful: two very different characters who challenge one another, fabulous works of art, many mysterious crimes and lots of beautiful locals. It's romantic, very sexy and funny. I might just listern to it all over again! The narrator did a pretty good job, too.

    "Kept Me Interested"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book was a reasonable choice for me as a commuter who listens to audiobooks on the drive -- it made the time by go quickly and was simple enough that I didn't have to concentrate very hard.


    What other book might you compare Homeport to and why?

    This is similar to a Harlequin Intrigue book, but with a better developed story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator could be inconsistent, especially with accents, and has a little bit of a monotone. She uses special effects to represent phone calls and characters' inner monologues.

    I enjoy all Nora Roberts books, especially her series. Again her books never fail to deliver suspense, humor and intrigue. I loved it and the narrator was excellent.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the relationship between Ryan and Miranda happened.

    I haven't listened to her performances before but she did well. I liked how she was able to go from Italian to Irish to Proper English in an instant.

    "Captivating!!"
    What did you love best about Homeport?

    I loved that it kept me interested...kept my attention! It had a perfect (for me) combination of suspense and romance. The mysterious twists and turns made me want to keep listening to figure it out and the love story made me smile.


    What other book might you compare Homeport to and why?

    I guess maybe Impulse by Catherine Coulter or Black Hills by Nora Roberts. I have a hard time remembering all the titles but these two stand out as well because they were just as hard to put down.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No particular scene really but the last few hours you really start to put it all together and I always enjoy that.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked how she described Ryan's family so well. Made you want to meet them all!


    Any additional comments?

    I read a lot of novels and recently started listening to more of them on audiobook to entice me to work out longer. I didn't want to stop while listening to this one!

    Yes

    "Unbelievable premise for a love story"

    I struggled right from the start of this book at how a smart, law abiding main character can fall in love with a thief, and although I enjoyed the mystery, the attraction of Miranda to her thief was too unbelievable to really get me in.

    "Typical N Roberts"

    Daft romance with a bit of a thriller thrown in. A bronze artifact is believed to be false, ruining the heroine's reputation; and wouldn't you just know it, the art thief who may have had something to do with it falls in love with her! Haha.
