More About the Author

The tenth of eleven children, I had to do something to distinguish myself. That thing turned out to be writing.

One of the coolest things that ever happened to me was finalling in RWA's Golden Heart contest for unpublished romance writers in 2001. I went on to do it again in 2002 and 2003.

Another cool thing: winning the 2003 New Voice in Romance contest sponsored by Dorchester Publishing and Romantic Times Magazine. My contest-winning story went on to be published by Dorchester.

A *super* cool thing: the revolutionizing of reading habits by Kindle and other eReaders. That development allowed me to publish my romantic suspense stories that didn't quite fit for traditional publishers, but which have been very well received by readers. Yay, Amazon!

My newest cool thing? Being able to put "USA Today bestselling author" after my name.

I live in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, with my family, a Rotti-Shepherd cross (Rottherd? Sheprotti?) and a tuxedo cat.

BRIEF SUMMARY
Nita is an attorney. She finds herself attracted to Det. Craig, but refuses to date a cop. Upon hearing some bad news from her doctor, Nita, thought she would die. After hearing the news, she goes on impulse and get Craig into her bed. After the deed is finish, her doctor confirms his mistake.

THOUGHTS

I did not know what to expect from this story, but I actually loved it. The concept alone I found enjoyable, however, Nita and Craig's interaction really brought a smile to my face. Although Craig was or seems to be a tough cop, his weakness seems to be Nita. He has asked her out numerous times but she has declined. Nita is a very into her work and cares what people thinks if she dates Det. Craig. The moment she gets her bad news, I love both characters interaction and chemistry. After the doctor's mistake, it gets even better for me.

I found the story to be cute and entertaining. Being a novella, it definitely had its fast pace moments, however, you couldn't help but fall in love with both Nita and Craig. I have never read anything by this author, but it makes me want to tip toe on over to her books and have a peak.

Storyline: FAIR to GOOD

One of the better erotic romances I've had the pleasure of reading lately. It's a bit cheesy, but the sex is well done and the characters are lovable enough to make the cheesy produce grins instead of eye-rolling.

I was really impressed with this short read. I downloaded it because it was free, but got a lot more than I expected. It is a short novella, but the story includes fully developed characters with emotions that felt real.

Lawyer Nita and detective Craig have known each other as opposing sides in the courtroom for years. But Nita has shot Craig down twice before, because she's got a "no dating cops" policy. When a mix up at the doctor's leaves Nita thinking that she is dying, she decides she wants to live the last bit of life to the fullest. For Nita, that means calling up Det. Craig, and jumping into bed.

I really enjoyed the author's writing. While there isn't a lot of "cop action" in this book, I look forward to picking up another book by her to check out her romantic suspense writing. Based on what I've read, I think it will be good. I have no concerns about her ability to write steamy scenes, there are definitely several hot scenes placed into Nita & Craig's story. While the novella moves quickly, the flow of the love scenes felt natural, and worked together with the plot to build an excellent story.

I enjoyed this story but I certainly didn't love it like I expected to from reading the reviews. Too much of the novella was devoted to sex and too little to the story. I like a good sex scene as much as anyone else, but I also like to have a well-developed plot which I didn't find here. At the end of the book there is an author's note saying that if you read her novels you'll get a lot more story about the characters but, since it wasn't billed as a prequel, I think that's cheating. If you're not in the mood for an introduction, you probably should just go ahead and buy the novels since it was well-written and I certainly cared about the characters enough to want to know more about what happens to them. It seemed unfinished to me but since it's free, I liked it enough to recommend it to others.

Simply put Norah Wilson's "Needing Nita" a novella within the Serve and Protect series was too short. It starts out with life changing news for attorney Nita the main character which in turn sparks her new found courage in approaching Detective Craig Walker. The story was a very quick read and I think it will be better received as a part of the series and not a stand alone effort. That said the story moved too fast and left me to fill in more blanks than I cared to. The steamy scenes that played out Nita's fantasy realized were standard and adequate;not the best that I've read. And in the end despite the main characters knowing each other for a number of years Wilson's attempt moved from zero to sixty leaving this reader with a giant question mark. I am a fan of novellas and short stories but this fell short with its lackluster craftsmanship. I also understand the idea of writing these types of shorts to kick off a series of books and they have worked particularly well for some authors. Wilson neglected to utilize this method of promotion for the Serve and Protect series because plainly stated it wasn't effective enough as far as heat, anticipation, attraction or sparks. I don't think that I will purchase the other books in the series. My short story reccomendations are Teasing Trent by M. Malone and Shelter From the Storm by Patricia Ryan.

This was a good story but it was just too short to be a satisfying read. You don't get to know any of the characters since they are not fleshed out.

This was the first work by Norah Wilson that I've read & it won't be my last! Ms. Norah Wilson weaved a sexy & entertaining story with Needing Nita. For readers, keep in mind that this is NOT a FULL length novel/book. It is more of a prequel or introduction to Ms. Wilson's 'Serve and Protect' series. Therefore, one should not expect too much. However, even though this is a novella, Ms. Wilson succeeded in forming an entertaining plot, storyline & well-developed characters. Ms. Wilson also definitely knew how to turn up the heat in this story! I loved Nita & Craig's chemistry. Although, the story was quite fast paced, it was believable. Overall, this was an entertaining read & one that I will be reading again. This sample got me sold on Norah Wilson. Thus, I will be going off to read this author's other works. I highly recommend if you're looking for a fast, sexy & entertaining read.
