Song of the West/ Nora Roberts/ 170 pages
This romance, set in Wyoming, features twins. Sabrina is the happily married sister who is going to have a baby. Samantha is the single sister who quits her job as a PE teacher to help her sister through a difficult pregnancy. Of course, Samantha is beautiful, a former Olympic gymnist, and not sure that she likes Jake Tanner the (of course) rich rancher with the ajoining ranch. As a romance, it was fairly predictable. As far as Nora Roberts, it was tame. Usually the book gets pretty steamy right about half-way. This book was from 1982 and must be her early work. The hero, Jake, is predatory and doesn't know how to take "No" for an answer. I did not think that his aggressive belief in his own advances on her made him a better character. I thought that it overshadowed his better side. Today, he would not be considered appropriate at all.
