Bay of Sighs by Nora Roberts
The Guardians Trilogy - Book 2
After the disappointment of my last read, I needed a sure thing, so I picked up one of my trusty go-to's and that's La Nora. Nora's always an easy read for me. I find myself reading just one more little bit, just one more bit. *LOL*
I discovered that one of the reasons I enjoy Nora's trilogies concerning 3 couples is that there's always a sense of a family coming together. The guys banter with the girls and the girls banter with the guys and they all banter with each other and I end up chuckling like a crazy person. :) Yes, they might seem repetitive from one trilogy to another, but it's a pleasant repetition. I love the friendships that get formed and I honestly think they mean more to me than the romances.
This book, book 2, is the story of the mermaid and the traveller. She's so funny and innocent of the ways of the land. I find her verbal faux pas very amusing. I also find her freedom and honesty refreshing. She seems so fragile and while I might be like Sawyer, the traveller, and want to protect her, she's fully capable of taking care of herself.
The romance is great, as always. I enjoy the OTTness of the love scenes, something that doesn't carry from one author to another. but as I said before, it's the friendships that often bring me to tears. And I usually, probably always, tear up reading a Nora. *LOL*
So, when the 3rd book Isle of Glass is no longer $13.99, I'll be picking it up. Even though I'm pretty damned sure I know how the trilogy ends, I'm going to enjoy the way it gets there. :)
