Night Shield - Nora Roberts

These characters have some of Roberts' favorite descriptive phrases. Jonah has pale gold skin and whiplash cheekbones from his Apache great-grandfather and clear green eyes from his Irish great-grandmother (9). Intervening generations have, I guess, had no effect on his appearance. Ally has "eyes like prime whiskey." (15) That's an Eve Dallas description, isn't it?


I remember absolutely nothing about this book and am now doubting I ever read it before, but I can still see some of the beats this romance will probably follow. Roberts' writing is very comfortable-feeling, so I'll probably get through this pretty quickly.
