Libri di Nora RobertsLingua:Libri Italiani
In una casa elegante e perfettamente conservata, ai piedi dei Blue Ridge Mountains in Carolina del Nord, il giovane Zane Bigelow si sente come un prigioniero di guerra. I genitori sono, di fatto, degli estranei: il chirurgo di successo e la sua elegante moglie fanno sporadiche apparizioni alle recite dei loro figli o alle partite di baseball ma, al riparo da occhi estranei, chiusi tra le mura domestiche, Zane e sua sorella Britt, vivono nel terrore e nel dolore.
Mentre la violenza di suo padre scoppia – con la silenziosa complicità di sua madre – e diventa sempre più opprimente, Zane conta gli anni, i mesi e i giorni che mancano alla sua fuga. Assediato dalla paura per la sua stessa vita, cerca di simulare una quieta serenità mentre di nascosto scrive i suoi veri pensieri su un diario segreto.
Quando finalmente la facciata crolla, il ragazzo inizia a capire che alcune persone sono disposte ad affrontare il peso della verità, anche se dolorosa e opprimente.
Anni dopo, Zane, promettente avvocato, torna a Lakeview, dove conosce una giovane donna, Darby McCray, che dietro alla sua grinta e al suo ottimismo nasconde un trascorso di ferite profonde quanto quelle dei fratelli Bigelow e dalle quali ha trovato la forza di emergere.
Ma il passato, a volte, torna a bussare alla porta...
THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
Every town has its ugly little secrets...
From the outside, the house in Lakeview Terrace looks perfect and the Bigelows seem like the perfect family: the respected surgeon father, the glamorous, devoted mother and two beautiful children. A perfect family, in a perfect house living their perfect lives.
But perfect surfaces can hide dark undercurrents and behind closed doors lies a very different story. Teenager Zane and his younger sister, Britt, are terrorised by their violent father and dysfunctional mother. Too afraid to speak out, Zane does his best to protect his sister and counts the days until they can finally be free.
One dark, brutal night when their father's temper takes a horrifying turn for the worse, the perfect façade is exposed for the lie it is and Zane and Britt manage to escape. With the help of their beloved aunt, they rebuild their lives a day at a time, creating new families and putting their past behind them. But a childhood like that can cast a shadow the length of a lifetime. Can Zane and Britt ever be free of their past? Or will those dark undercurrents rise to the surface, forcing them to fight for their lives once again...

A young woman accepts a job offer that promises to bring her a lifetime of love as the Irish Hearts Trilogy continues in #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts’ Irish Rose.
Burke Logan came to Ireland looking for thoroughbreds for his Maryland horse farm—but never expected Erin McKinnon to catch his eye. Unable to get the fiery beauty out of his mind, Burke offers her a bookkeeping position back home. Despite his audacity, Erin jumps at the chance to leave her small-town life in Skibbereen behind for the endless opportunities America offers, and for more attention from her handsome employer. Once stateside, their initial attraction grows undeniably stronger, but Burke is keeping Erin at arm’s length—to protect her from a secret in his past that could destroy their love.
Perché una minaccia si nasconde nell’ombra: c’è un uomo che si aggira nel buio, un uomo addestrato con il solo intento di reclamare la donna che è sfuggita alle sue mani...
La trilogia BoonsBoro Hotel arriva alla sua trionfale conclusione, più romantica e stuzzicante che mai.
Dana Steele has always found her greatest passion in books. But now her boss is making her job as a librarian a living hell. Luckily, she now has a Plan B…
High on a hill overlooking the town of Pleasant Valley, Pennsylvania, sits the Warrior’s Peak estate. It’s where Dana was invited to meet Malory Price and Zoe McCourt—and where they learned that they were destined to find three keys to unlock a box holding the souls of three mythical demigoddesses: one an artist, one a bard, and one a warrior.
With the promise of a million dollars each dangled before them, the women couldn’t refuse. And as Malory found the first key, they formed a fast friendship and decided to go into business together. For Dana, that meant her dream of owning a bookstore was about to come true.
And now, as Dana finds herself on the threshold of some major life changes, it’s her turn to find a key. She has four weeks to unravel a riddle involving her past, present, and future, and to find the truth hidden among deception and lies—or succumb to her worst nightmare.

Key of Valor
The #1 New York Times-bestselling author's terrifying new thriller about one man's ice-cold malice, and one woman's fight to reclaim her life.
Former Army brat Morgan Albright has finally planted roots in a friendly neighborhood near Baltimore. Her friend and roommate Nina helps her make the mortgage payments, as does Morgan's job as a bartender. But after she and Nina host their first dinner party—attended by Luke, the flirtatious IT guy who'd been chatting her up at the bar—her carefully built world is shattered. The back door glass is broken, cash and jewelry are missing, her car is gone, and Nina lies dead on the floor.
Soon, a horrific truth emerges: It was Morgan who let the monster in. "Luke" is actually a cold-hearted con artist named Gavin who targets a particular type of woman, steals her assets and identity, and then commits his ultimate goal: murder.
What the FBI tells Morgan is beyond chilling. Nina wasn't his type. Morgan is. Nina was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. And Morgan's nightmare is just beginning. Soon she has no choice but to flee to her mother's home in Vermont. While she struggles to build something new, she meets another man, Miles Jameson. He isn't flashy or flirtatious, and his family business has deep roots in town. But Gavin is still out there hunting new victims, and he hasn't forgotten the one who got away.
