This book contains two vintage Nora Roberts stories. The two books aren't exactly a series, but in Loving Jack characters are introduced who appear in Best Laid Plans. Nora Roberts love stories never disappoint, and these two are no exception. Love triumphs in the end.

Two stories of two male architects that have their own firm and fall in love. You can't call them "short stories" because they're actually mini-novels. The first one is "LOVING JACK" and should have been shortened by at least 100 pages. It's simply a love story that's 236 pages in small print. Not much else going in the plot, either. (It's alot of "he was thinking this..." and "she was thinking that...")

The second story is "BEST LAID PLANS" and I enjoyed it alot more. It centered around a romance, but it had more action and a story line in it's 240 pages than the previous one.

If you're a Nora fan, you'll find at least the second story enjoyable. And, while the first one is littered with the main character's attempt to write her first novel (sound like a familiar story-line??), it beats watching reruns on t.v.

I truly enjoy Nora Roberts books. Both stories are more light heart-ed and feel good. They are early stories and do not have the added mystery story line.

This is a great set of two stories written by the awesome Nora Roberts. I love the characters in this piece, they are strongly written despite the smaller length of the novels.

Both stories, Loving Jack and Best Laid Plans, were entertaining and enjoyable to read. I am a big fan of Nora Roberts and, although I liked these stories, I felt that many of her books were more arresting to me.

This book includes two stories in it. I love how she has brought danger into their lives, but not an over abundance of it.

Somehow her own fictional brooding hero had turned up in person right under her own roof, and now all romance writer Jackie MacNamara had to do was convince stubborn Nathan Powell that happily-ever-after began at home - and in her arms.....

Nora Roberts definitely did good with this book. It's a classic romance novel, with a very interesting twist.

LOVING JACK

BEST LAID PLANS
She was the sexiest thing in a hard hat that architect Cody Johnson had ever seen, but structural engineer, Abra Wilson also had a will as strong as a steel girder-and just about as flexible. But Cody had plans for Abra that not even this spirited beauty could resist....
