Can’t get enough of stories by top romance author Nora Roberts?  Well, few of us can, so here’s the perfect solution - three of her best in the Nora Roberts Collection beginning with The Villa performed by Laural Merlington.   Giambelli wines have been at the top of everyone’s list for three generations.  Whether in California or Paris or Italy these wines are highly recommended in restaurants and served in luxurious private homes.  However, things may definitely change as Tereza, the family matriarch has announced a merger with the MacMillan family’s winery.

    For Sophia this is a challenge as she is a savvy business woman and she knows she must teach Tyler MacMillan the ins and outs of running a successful winery.  However, Tyler has a few things to teach Sophia.  She is torn between his physical attractiveness and professional rivalry.

    Next you’ll hear Midnight Bayou performed by James Daniels.  This is quite a change of venue for listeners as we move to New Orleans and meet Declan Fitzgerald, a maverick in every sense of the word.  He buys Manet Hall, a once  regal but now run down mansion on the outskirts of the city.  He may have bought more than he bargained for because mysterious things are happening at the Hall as Declan begins the onerous task of renovating one room at a time.  He is determined to restore the mansion to its former glory, and is also determined in regard to the lovely Angelina Simone.  However, Angelina has a surprising connection to Manet Hall that is disclosed when a hundred year old secret is revealed.

    Three Fates performed by Bernadette Quigley is the third offering and what a tale it is!  As the world knows when the Lusitania sank over one thousand lives were lost.   However among the survivors was one man who perhaps saw his survival as an omen, a second chance.  He gave up his former life as a petty thief and kept a small silver statue that would be a family heirloom for future generations. 

    Now, almost 100 years have passed and the treasured heirloom, one of a priceless set of three, has been taken from the family.   Malachi, Gideon and Rebecca Sullivan are prepared to do whatever is necessary to recover their great, great-grandfather’s treasure, reunite the Three Fates and make their fortune.  That’s quite an order!

    This Nora Roberts Collection provides 40 hours of intriguing listening.  Enjoy!
