Loved this series, all four books. But I agree that Ethan takes a reader heart right away; he is one of the few beta males I like, much less love. Grace is his perfect heroine. I don't think the book would be half as good if the heroine was flashy or sassy (not that I don't love those kinds, cause I do).

Can you believe this series is the only Nora Roberts I've ever read? I mean, she's such an institution, but I never knew where to start. I agree that a flashy heroine wouldn't have worked for Ethan at all: he's too steady and calm.

Not to sound like a NR fan girl, but her family series are great. I liked the MacGregors series, the Donovan Legacy, the Calhoun Women series, and the Bride Quartet (but that seemed to sweet for a lot of readers). Her stand alones lately aren't my thing (to me they are slug fests for the sole purpose of reading to see if the story gets better), but the ones she wrote in the late 80s and 90s are awesome (although a bit gruesome, and may be a trigger for some readers). I loved Public Secrets, Carnal Innocence, River's End and Carolina Moon. Her paranormal series are not my thing either. Overall, if you start a NR series, always start at the beginning - she doesn't do much backtracking to describe the world after the first book. Then there is my favorite, the ...In Death series she writes under the pen name J.D. Robb.
