Publisher's Summary

They both knew what would happen...
She moved in perfect harmony to the music that ruled her life both onstage and off. He dealt with the world with ruthless expertise. Music was his business and he was all business. That is until she lit up the stage.

The attraction was instant...and impossible.
Because he ruled his empire from glass towers high above the vibrancy of her world, and coming too close to hers was risky business. But she was a woman who dared to dream, and she had dreams big enough for them both.

the story and the narrator

This is the second in a quartet of books, each of which I enjoyed enough to re-read them. I've bought both of the available books as they've come out, and I'm not sorry, but the narration is terrible. Marie Caliendo has a sweet little girl voice, and the only characther it does justice to is a southern belle type in The Last Honest Woman. The characters in these books are survivors, but they end up sounding like ten-year-olds. That goes for male and female, young and old. I can't say don't buy this, the story is worth hearing. I just don't know how I would have felt if this were my introduction to the stories instead of a review.

Easy Reading

Predictable and light weight but makes an enjoyable summer read.

The books good, but

The reader made Maddie sound like such and air headed child. Other than that, it was a good book. I purchased the whole 4 book set and this was the only one she annoyed me in.

I realized that Maddie was supposed to be 'bubbly' but YIKES!!! It was grating.

enjoyable

i thought in all the Ohurley novels all the men sounded whimpy almost...Trace was the best in Without a Trace. They played macho men roles but they were just UGH.

Loved the voice and inflection for Maddie. Chantelle sounds like her nose is a mile in the air and Abby sounds like she will spook at the drop of a hat.

overall, good stories and worth the bulk price!

Great Romance

I like this wonderful romance. The characters are fun and interesting. I like Nora Roberts books and wondered if these being some of her earlier work, if it was going to be as good. Yes, it is.

Dance to the Piper

This is a wonderful love story that explores the bitterness of childhood hurts that can adversely impact your adult life choices and your ability to forgive and forget but most importantly to live and love! Kudos!!! Well done! 27 curtain calls to all!!!

Another dance for success by Nora<br />I

A heart wrenching and heart warming story of the young girl and the rich bachelor that needs to learn what love is.

One big “meh”

I’m a fan of Nora Roberts, but this definitely isn’t her best. The narrator was fine, but what I couldn’t stand was the music they decided to play at the beginning of EACH chapter. It was just plain annoying. I will hurriedly be downloading something else from Roberts in an effort to forget this one.

Terrible narration

I loved the first book in the series. Narration by the same performer was okay. This one is awful. The story is okay, The hero is hard to like, but it might be better with less hokey narration.

just as I remember a harlequin romance

the only thing is this must have been written for a younger generation because the main character 's father was younger than me
