Read full description of the books:
Up front I'll say as a romance, Roarke will not be most people's typical story. This is more of a story about Nora trying to regain her memories and her life, what happened to her and why, then it is about a romance with Roarke. Nora slowly goes from a 'robot'--all instinct and calculated reactions, no emotions behind the actions at all--to a 'human' trying to maintain some semblance of control over a life she wants back, but is frightened of.
Told from Nora's point of view, in a present tense tone, we're floundering right along with Nora as she struggles to remember something, anything of her life at all. Fleeting impressions or thoughts, fuzzy images and a song that she hears in her mind, these are all she has to go on. Her doctor, Doctor Williams, is the one presence she trusts implicitly, as far as her health at least. She sense secrets, senses something is not quite right or missing, but can't fathom what it could be.
As her past unfolds, Nora evolves, though she fights against the memories a lot of the time. Roarke is her rock, he helps her remember, makes her feel agitated but not in a scared way. Evan, her 'fiancee', does his level best to make her think she should rely on him, but he's jittery. Afraid of her, afraid of who she is--or possibly was.
I wish there had been more about her and Roarke. We're given so little about their time before her accident, that even after explanations were had I still found it difficult to fully believe that he meant so much to her. This story worked well as a mystery, or a suspense story. What happened to Nora? Why were people hiding things? What was Evan hiding that made him alternately smug and frightened? I wanted to know so I kept reading. The ending came too fast for me, but I greatly enjoyed this short story nonetheless.

Read information about the authorFrances Pauli writes across multiple genres. Her work is speculative, full of the fantastic, and quite often romantic at its core. Whenever possible, she enjoys weaving in a little humor. Once upon a time she was a visual artist, but she's since come to her senses. Now she fills her miniscule amount of free time with things like crochet, belly dance and abysmal ukulele playing. She lives in Central Washington State with her husband, two children, a pair of hairless dogs and five tarantulas.
