Book Description

Available digitally for the first time.

Rivals turn to lovers in this classic novel of passion and suspense from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts.

Laurel Armand is a Southern belle on a mission—to be the best reporter in New Orleans. Matthew Bates is determined to beat her at her own game, while flirting his way into her bed. With their dangerous attraction simmering just below the surface, both Laurel and Matthew feed off their rivalry—until they’re forced to work together on a case of murder and madness. Caught up in their jobs and each other, resistance doesn’t stand a chance. They’re about to go all out in seeking the truth, finding justice, and firing up the passion between them…

Includes a preview for The Perfect Hope.

4.0 out of 5 stars Published 2001 October 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Just a warning for NR readers, this is not a "new" book. It was originally published in 2001. I did enjoy it back then and felt it was written in her normal standard. She has written so much that now she revisits and revises her plots. I still enjoy her talent, but not enough to pay $7 for a Kindle book. Penquin needs to realize that there are so many other options to previously published books that they are really shooting themselves in the pocketbook when they insist charging full price. If they can sell paperbacks at SAM's for $5, then Amazon should certainly be able to get their clients the same deal. Shame on both of you.

Shown as new book but really repackaged. Dated story line about print newspaper reporters. Would not have preordered if I had known.

1.0 out of 5 stars Reprint!!! November 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I try to carefully check to be sure I'm not getting a reprint of an older book. Well, this one is a reprint and I'm very disappointed. It doesn't come close to being as interesting as her newer books, I didn't bother finishing it. I really hate getting a reprint of an older book, feel like I've been "taken". Bummer...

3.0 out of 5 stars Partners October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoy Nora Roberts but reissues with new covers are deceptive. Partners is a good story but like the other reviewer it's a shame that penguin publishing is targeting E book readers for higher prices than print books,but its not Amazons fault they have to sell at the publishers price they would give us deals if they could its the publishers who are robbing us. Just wanted to put the blame where it belongs Amazon wants to offer us better deals and we need to support them so they can fight these greedy publishers by supporting theses self published authors just saying.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Early Nora Roberts February 23, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Fast-paced mystery romance about two rival newspaper reporters forced to work together on a murder case in Louisiana. Matthew Bates went to college with Laurel Armand's brother and fell in love with her picture. He accepts a job in New Orleans, hoping to get to know her and is assigned to work the same story as her.
Laurel is annoyed at having to share credit for the story and thinks that "yankee" Matthew is not her type. Of course, she soon learns otherwise and they solve the mystery together.
Excerpt from the back of the book:
"Long before he met her, Matthew Bates loved Laurel Armand. Working with her brought both pleasure and pain, because the sexy Southern belle kept him at a professional distance. Then the rival reporters were thrown together on a case of murder and madness-where much more than love was at stake."

1.0 out of 5 stars book was written in 1992 October 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It drives me crazy when book publishers do this! Nora Roberts wrote this book 20 years ago (as a Silhouette paperback, entitled #21 - Orchid - Language of Love). They should not be allowed to give it a new name and pretend it's a new release. I also don't understand why it's only just NOW coming available in Kindle format. In any event, it should be noted clearly that it is not a new publication.

2.0 out of 5 stars Partners January 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Nora Roberts and this book was so disappointing!! There is no way this book is a new release. It is very awkward and doesn't have her usual great plot. It doesn't even flow like a Nora Roberts novel!

You could tell this was one of Nora Roberts first books. It was okay, but not up to her high standard.
