Nora Roberts – The Romance Queen!

in Romance

Nora Roberts, the first inductee in the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame, is one of the goddesses of modern romance. Most authors have inspirational tales behind how they got introduced to writing, but what drove Nora Roberts to write was sheer boredom. What started off as a means to wile away time when housebound with her two sons during a blizzard, turned into a full-on career. Though a few of her initial manuscripts were rejected by Harlequin, she soon got herself a deal with Silhouette books. She went on to write stories that sold millions of copies, some of her books have made their appearance on the New York Times Bestseller List.

There are many romance writers today, so what makes Nora Roberts one of the most sought after? Her female characters are more real, and come with enough backbone to give the men a run for their money. Her heroines are not drop-dead gorgeous, they are normal women with some sterling qualities which are more to do with their personality than their appearance. She also gives in-depth insight into the psyche of her male characters, which is no surprise as she grew up with 4 brothers and has two boys of her own. It's hard not to fall in love with her characters. Most of her female fans adore Daniel MacGregor, the indisputable laird of the MacGregor Clan - a formidable and intimidating personality on the outside but soft as marshmallow from inside! His unapologetic match-making plans; relentless interference in his children's lives, his adoration for his gentle wife Anna and not to forget his rugged good looks, have made him a popular character.

Her books also have a strong sense of family, which again is a reflection of her close family ties. Nora Roberts adds suspense to romance, creating an atmosphere of mystique and passion. She weaves an intricate tale of love, desire and mystery in all her books. She interlaces her lines with humor which is engaging and fun.

A few of her books such Angels Fall, Montana Sky, and Midnight Bayou were made into movies. Nora Roberts is a compelling storyteller, and what flows out of her pen is pure magic.
