unsympathetic characters

I have to say that I laboured through this one. I usually like Nora Roberts' books as light relief. The two main characters bickered their way through the whole book and I felt like telling them to grow up. I found the hero most unlikeable and rather lacking in sense. The story opens when he returns after being absent for five years. There's no good explanation of why he couldn't have contacted his family and told them what the problem was.
The summary refers to the heroine as being a thief, but I had assumed that was some sort of plot twist. In fact all the 'sympathetic' characters are thieves and their only self-justification appears to be that they enjoy it. Perhaps this was meant to give a Raffles-like air to them, but it didn't work for me.

Storyline isn't bad but the delivery is awful!

It sounds like it's read by a computer very disappointing indeed. The storyline isn't as grabbing as I've come to expect from Nora Roberts. Overall I would say poor, and don't waste your money.
