Two books in one, both very enjoyable, light reads. Nora Roberts doing what she does best, stories about love and the people who want it, those who try to avoid it and how they seem to always get together.

Two Stories in this one...LOCAL HERO is about a comic-book writer who falls for a single mom with a young son and avid comic-book reader. The writer is quite a character and really a kid at heart. DUAL IMAGE is about a soap opera actress who gets a shot at starring in "made for tv" movie, but finds the part that she really wants is to become the wife of the silent and moody screenplay writer. Both stories are memorable and quick to read.

I only read the first novel. It was so thoroughly predictable that I couldn't bear to read the second.

Nora Roberts is one of my favorite romance authors because her works never disappoint me. This paperback is a re-issue of two previously published stories set in Manhattan. Since "Local Hero" was originally published in 1988 and "Dual Image" in 1985, both stories could use some updating of minor details like technology and characters smoking, but the stories still held my interest. When you need a reliable romance, this gives you a double bang for the buck.

#1 New York Times bestselling author NORA ROBERTS presents the passionate heart of the city that never sleeps, in these two complete novels...

LOCAL HERO

Comic-book writer Mitch Dempsey creates heroes, but he's never seen himself as one-that is, until Hester Wallace moves into the apartment upstairs. When Hester's son, Radley, finds out his new neighbor is the brains behind his favorite superhero...well, Mitch might as well be Commander Zark. He can do no wrong as far as Radley is concerned, but Hester isn't as easy to win over. Still, there's something about the shy, single mom that intrigues Mitch...and makes him long to love, honor and protect her forever.

DUAL IMAGE

Playing Booth DeWitt's cruel ex-wife in his semiautobiographical film is a dream come true for actor Ariel Kirkwood. Not only is it a giant boon for her career, but she also gets to work with Booth-and since she's gotten to know him, Ariel can't get the aloof, sexy screenwriter out of her mind. She wants to be his leading lady for life, but Booth seems more distant with each passing day. Now Ariel must convince Booth to see her for the woman she truly is, not the one she was hired to portray...

This book was okay. By that I mean it was entertaining enough to keep reading but it wasn't at the top of my favorites by Nora Roberts. I liked the first story, Local Hero, more. It was very sweet since a little boy was a main character and as much a part of the love story as the man and woman. However, the second story just didn't enchant me the way I hoped it would. It was okay but the characters and story line just didn't do it for me.
