Well you may or may not remember but last year 4 of Nora Roberts novels became Lifetime original movies (Angels Fall, Blue Smoke, Carolina Moon and Montana Sky) and they weren’t exactly true to the book but they were great movies and the movie Angels Fall made it really big. That lead to getting 4 more of Nora Roberts books becoming Lifetime original movies this year. Here is what I got in my newsletter about the films:

Lifetime TV press release wrote:

I absolutely love, love, LOVE Nora Roberts. I’ve been reading her books since my mom’s friend gave me her daughter’s old books and Nora Roberts’ book Three Fates was in the mix with my first Catherine Coulter’s Warrior Song. So now I’m going to say that the second book in the Sign of Seven Trilogy Series is a very suspenseful novel about 3 totally different different men who were born on the same month and the same day and at the same time, Caleb, Fox and Gage. I loved reading this third and last book in the trilogy and I have to say that Nora Roberts is a genius! This third book was an excellent read and I was a bit spooked when I was reading it because Roberts just made me feel like I was there with her details and it was as good as the first and second book. It reminded me a bit of Stephen King’s work but with Roberts romance mixed into it.

This book is Gage’s book and in this book we see all 6 of the characters that we have gotten to know in book 1, Blood Brothers, and book 2, The Hollow. We have found out in first two books that the three men are connected to the three women through blood somehow since the evil came to Hawkins Hollow in 1652 and since the three boys let the evil out again when they were 10 years old. Cal and Quinn have fallen in love in the first book, Fox and Layla have fallen in love in the second book and now it is Gage’s and Cybil’s turn to fall in love. All of them learn more about the past and they have more knowledge of what they are all dealing with but it is only getting worse for them and they only have a couple of months left before July comes rolling around and all hell breaks loose on the town of Hawkins Hollow. Gage and Cybil are the last couple of the 6 of them to finally give in to the love that they share even though they can’t stand each other since they first met.

This is the last and conclusion to the Sign of Seven Trilogy and it really rapped up the entire story really nicely because everyone got a happily ever after. There were a lot of scary parts where I had no idea what would happen next and really thought things were going to end badly. I loved reading every minute of this book and again I have to say that Nora Roberts is a genius and I can always depend on her coming out with excellent reading material. I recommend this series for all romance readers and anyone who is not a romance reader read it anyway and you will become a true romance reader because it is that good. I give this book 4 Open Books:
Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:

THE PAGAN STONE $ 7.99 (Book 3)(322 Pages)
BLOOD AND DEATH, FIRE AND MADNESS…

loom over the town of Hawkins Hollow. Every seven years, the seventh day of the seventh month portends seven days of violence and mayhem. This year, the darkness is stronger than ever. And only friendship and family, promise and passion can stop it…

Years ago, after their blood brother ritual, Gage, Fox and Caleb emerged from the woods, each with a piece of bloodstone. Now, it will become their weapon in the final fight against the demon they awakened. Winner take all…

Shared nightmares, visions of blood and fire, and random violence plague the longtime friends and Quinn, Layla, and Cybil, the women bound to them by Fate. None of them can ignore the fact that, this year, the demon has grown stronger—feeding off the terror it creates. But now the three pieces of the bloodstone have been fused back together. If only they could figure out how to use it.

A gambling man like Gage has no trouble betting on his crew to find a way. And though he and Cybil share the gift of seeing the future, that’s all they have in common. Were they to take their flirtation to the next level, it would be on their own terms, not because Fate decreed it. But Gage knows that a woman like Cybil—with her brains and strength and devastating beauty—can only bring him luck. Whether it’s good or bad has yet to be determined—and could mean the difference between absolute destruction or an end to the nightmare for Hawkins Hollow.

I absolutely love, love, LOVE Nora Roberts. I’ve been reading her books since my mom’s friend gave me her daughter’s old books and Nora Roberts’ book Three Fates was in the mix with my first Catherine Coulter’s Warrior Song. Montana Sky is a very suspenseful novel that kept me wanting more and it was divided into four parts for the four different seasons. It’s also a LifetimeTV movie that is also out on DVD and I have to say the book is better than the movie but the movie was good because it did give a sorta more physical and visiual outlook on the characters. The movie had the names and characters alright but their where a lot of scenes that were never in the book and it made it a bit disappointing for me to watch. It is romantic too and I love that mixture of suspense and romance in a novel.
The book is about 3 sisters who hardly know each other ever exsited. The all had the same father but different mothers and only Willa Mercy knew her father because she lived and worked with him on their family ranch all her life. She expected the ranch to automatically come into her hands after her fathers death but she is sure in for a surprise when her half sisters come into the picture after the funeral. Tess is from Hollywood and so she plans to come to the ranch claim her third of the ranch so she can hightail it back to her life in Hollywood. Lily is coming out of a bad marriage so she’s grateful for the place to stay at the ranch but she isn’t expecting anything because she has only learned to expect disappointment and cruelty from men. All three of these ladies are going to have to suck it up if they want to keep the ranch and the men they fall in love with along the way makes for an wonderful and entertaining novel. I recommend this book for all romance readers and anyone who is not a romance reader read it anyway and you will become a true romance reader because it is that good and I can tell you this, Nora Roberts never disappoints. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
MONTANA SKY $ 7.99 (480 Pages)

When Jack Mercy died, he left behind a lot of enemies…and a ranch worth nearly twenty million dollars. Now his three daughters—each born of a different marriage, and each unknown to the others—are gathered to hear the reading of the will.

Willa, the only one who knew her father, boldly expects that everything will be hers. Tess, who has reluctantly flown in from Hollywood, just hopes to fly back with as much cash as possible—as soon as possible. And Lily would be grateful for anything; she has learned to expect disappointment, even cruelty, from men.

But the women are shocked to learn that before any of them can inherit, they must live together on the ranch for one year. They are sisters…and strangers. Now they face a challenge: to put their bitterness aside and live like family. To protect each other from danger—and unite against an enemy who threatens to destroy all. And finally, to weave together three very different worlds in this beautiful and isolated place called Montana…

Phoebe Jordan

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
