I have loved Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb (who just happen to be the same person, in case you didn’t know) for a very, very long time. I’m pretty sure my mother introduced me to Nora Roberts’ books when I was old enough to read adult romance. Maybe even before, if truth be told. My mom was a huge fan of Danielle Steele, Sydney Sheldon, Nora Roberts, Mary Higgins Clark, and I’m sure many others. Those are the ones that stick out the most though. Out of those, I fell in love with Nora Roberts the most as a reader.
When I decided to start writing my own books, I started asking myself what, exactly, made me like my favorite authors. With Nora Roberts, it was her way of developing characters so completely that I felt like I knew them intimately. For example, I’m pretty sure I have nothing in common with Eve Dallas of J.D. Robb’s In Death series, however, I’m also fairly certain I would enjoy drinking with her any night of the week after work.
What’s my point? My point is that when someone even comes close to comparing me to my hero in the romantic suspense genre, I tend to get a little giddy like a five-year-old little girl who just got her first bike without training wheels.
Aishwarya Saxena of At Least I’m Well-Read says this in her review of Exposed in Darkness (click on the link to read the entire review):
“Right after I finished her (J.D. Robb’s) latest, Echoes In Death, I was left wanting more. Thankfully, I had a copy of Heather Sunseri’s foray into romantic suspense, Exposed in Darkness, and I am so happy to have found a new favourite author in the genre.”
She also said:
“… there were a lot of questions left unanswered and I, for one, am eagerly waiting for Ms Sunseri’s next book in the series. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the romantic suspense genre but especially to my fellow In Death superfans.”
So yeah… I’m in love with this review for simply suggesting that fans of J.D. Robb’s In Death series will enjoy the In Darkness series.
Oh, and by the way, what Aishwarya means by “questions left unanswered” has nothing to do with a cliffhanger, so don’t think that at all. This story is a complete story. But the character’s lives do continue into a series, so there is still more info to come.
