Overview

Return to the second unforgettable book in the Stanislaski family saga by #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts

Nothing in Sydney Hayward’s background of wealth and privilege had prepared her to take the helm of her grandfather’s business. Her new responsibilities leave no time for complications. Sydney has learned the hard way that she could never trust anyone, but her tenant Mikhail is hard to resist. Down-to-earth, yet stubborn, he comes from a world utterly different from her own. She doesn’t have room in her life for romance—but Mikhail seems to know exactly how to win her over...one smoldering kiss at a time.

Originally published in 1991.

Light fiction with an interesting storyline. Roberts develops the characters well and builds a story around their development. Nice easy vacation read with a happy, if predictable, ending.

A really good read. Needless to say I'll be downloading the other books in the series. Nora Roberts is one of the best romance authors.

Altho I've read various Nora Roberts books, this was my first Stanislawski book. So of course now I have to get them all. Enjoyable characters - I would love to be part of a Stanislawski family. And, no, you really don't have to read them in order. In fact, neeting Rachel and Natasha and their families in this book made me want to read the rest.

Love Nora Roberts, but this was a struggle to get through. The characters were one-dimensional and the story was trite (167 pages). Must be an early work of hers because I have read her other books and they are usually very good.

This was my first Nora Roberts book that I have read. It was an awesome book. I read it in one day!

I have been an avid reader for many years - books written under her name and her J.D. Robb persona. She is the ultimate story creater and teller - you are hooked from page 1! Barb H. Algonquin, Il

Little snippet of trivia about this 2nd book in the Stanislaski series: that lady in yellow there? That's Nora.Sydney Hayward is a divorced socialite who's just inherited her grandfather's company. Everyone thinks she'll play at being CEO for a little while, then get bored with it and go back to what's really important: socializing. Sydney, on the other hand, is determined to live up to her grandfather's trust and do a good job.Mikhail Stanislaski is a Ukranian immigrant, brother of Natasha from Taming Natasha, and a renowned sculptor.Sydney meets Mik when he shows up at her office, without an appointment, complaining about the conditions in one of her apartment buildings. Annoyed but challenged, she visits the building, is dismayed by its condition, and hires Mik, who admitted he's "sometimes a carpenter," to oversee the necessary repairs.There are obstacles from the other officers of the company, who think she should be thinking of the profits, and from her mother and Channing--her mother's choice of a second husband for Sydney--who think she should be focusing on planning her wedding. In the face of all this, finding out that Mik isn't just a carpenter is small potatoes.This is a pretty standard early-90s romance (1991). The heroine has a masculine name (I got a chuckle when Mik objected to it), and she has no problem whatsoever running a pretty big company without any training that we can see. We never find out how big the company is, but it has stockholders and a board of directors, so I'm assuming it does more than just own/manage one or two apartment buildings. These things you just kind of have to accept and move on.Sydney's mother is a fairly flat villain, as is Sydney's corporate nemesis. We don't really get motivations for either of them.But Sydney's determination to do the right thing, and to make a difference, particularly in the face of so much resistance, is inspiring to watch. She was absolutely convincing--starting off as the confident rich woman to whom nobody says "no", she's initially offended by Mik's anger and protest, but her strength shows, and she takes it as a challenge. Then she doesn't duck the blame for the company's negligence--instead she accepts responsibility and begins to solve the problem. And when she discovers Mik's fame/talent, instead of flying into a rage like 90% of the heroines in Romancelandia would do, she swallows her initial reaction and carries on. Just lovely.Also lovely is the Stanislaski family, and the contrast between their warmth and boisterousness (although really--why do all grown-up brothers in the Noraverse indulge in fisticuffs?) and the cold reserve of the Haywards.It's Sydney's story, really--she has the changing to do. All Mik has to do is fall in love. Which is not to say he doesn't have a few difficult moments with it, but he's pretty much fine the way he is. Sydney will, I'm sure, smooth out what rough edges remain.

Unexpected and unwanted, love happens. Love is difficult when you spend your life doing what others expect. Believable characters and story.

I started with first book. Intrigue me to read the next. Mikhail where are you in real life? This book was light heartened, drew you into their worlds and sensual. I am now reading the 3rd book. I look forward to reading all 6 books. You will not be disappointed! Ps. Why do so many reviews give away so much of the story? I dont read reviews as much just write them to share how much i enjoy! Please people do not write lengthly book reports, just say whether you liked or not.
