Kate 'Treasures Lost, Treasures Found' Kate had inherited a pile of mysterious ocean charts. Her practical, no-nonsense father had had a dream - sunken treasure - and he'd left a map leading to a gold-laden ship. Determined to complete her father's explorations, she turned to the only man with the ability to tackle the treacherous dive deep beneath the Atlantic: Ky Silver. Kate had left Ky four years ago, frightened of the needs he awoke in her, yet now she needed him more than ever. But working with Ky meant more than searching for gold pieces - it meant risking her heart for a chance at an even more precious treasure. 'Risky Business' Cozumel had been home to Liz Palmer for ten years. She was settled, respected. Her Black Coral Dive Shop was the best on the island. She no longer missed Houston, or thought about the man who didn't want her of their child. And for two weeks, Cozumel was home to Jerry Sharpe, the diving instructor she'd hired. Until he was found murdered. Suddenly Jonas Sharpe, Jerry's twin brother, stormed into her well-ordered life with grief in his eyes and revenge in his heart. He plunged them both into the desperate world of drug smugglers - and into the dangerous depths of passion.

    Early Roberts, and nowhere near what I expect from her now. I've come to expect a rich experience when I read her. Her books are almost like an immersive movie, making the scenery and people so alive that I sometimes forget I'm just reading. These two fall short there. Part of that is the length. The two together are less than a single volume of one of her usual trilogies. Is that because of the market they were written for? Or did she hit that market because she hadn't yet developed her prose? Early Roberts, and nowhere near what I expect from her now. I've come to expect a rich experience when I read her.

Or did she hit that market because she hadn't yet developed her prose? This pair was worth reading because I like Nora Roberts' style, and having discovered her well after she got really good, it was interesting to see almost a draft. Kind of like Christie's first Miss Marple, a bit fuzzy around the edges. If you like NR, these two have some charm. If you're not familiar with her, go ahead and read these, but go on to some of her later, longer books. These 2 are like eating the menu in comparison.

    A Vintage Nora Roberts Weekend As the Queen of Romance, Nora Roberts stories are like good wines. They withstand the test of time. Dangerous Embrace is a 2-in-one collection of two vintage Roberts books: Treasures Lost, Treasures Found and Risky Business. Both originally published in 1986, theyve held up well for 35 years and the only clue that theyre not current is the absence of electronic gadgets, including the ubiquitous cell phone. Oh, and cigarettes too. People were smoking like steam A Vintage Nora Roberts Weekend As the Queen of Romance, Nora Roberts’ stories are like good wines. They withstand the test of time. “Dangerous Embrace” is a 2-in-one collection of two vintage Roberts books: “Treasures Lost, Treasures Found” and “Risky Business”. Both originally published in 1986, they’ve held up well for 35 years and the only clue that they’re not current is the absence of electronic gadgets, including the ubiquitous cell phone. Oh, and cigarettes too. People were smoking like steam engines in that era but you’ll not hear me waxing nostalgic for a comeback of the nicotine habit. In “Treasures Lost, Treasures Found” Kate Hardesty hires Ky Silver to help her find an eighteenth century English merchant ship that went down in the Outer Banks area near Ocracoke Island. Even though Kate swore she’d never trust Ky again, he was the only person for the job. Until her father’s death Kate hadn’t known of his interest in finding this shipwreck and its cargo of gold. In his desk she found a cache of detailed maps, navigational charts, tide tables, etc. pinpointing what should be the location, but there were no guarantees and deep sea diving is risky business. Can they bury the hatchet and work together to search for gold? “Risky Business” is set in Cozumel. Ex-pat Liz Palmer migrated to the Caribbean island ten years ago. With an abundance of hard work and a single-minded concentration she had made a life for herself and her daughter. Her dive shop and glass bottom tour boat businesses were successful because of her focus on details and satisfying the customer. But her orderly life takes a 180 U-turn when one of her employees is murdered and his twin brother Jason comes to Cozumel determined to avenge Jerry’s death. Working together they discover Jerry had been involved in drug smuggling and it had cost him his life. To further.complicate matters, there is an undeniable attraction between Liz and Jason. Even though Liz is averse to a romantic involvement, the chemistry between them is not to be denied. Can Jason convince her to “let go” and just “feel”? Several years ago I thought I had read every book written by Nora Roberts but I was mistaken. These two romantic adventures had eluded my notice and I have to say I’m glad I discovered them. Four stars.

    Pretty good, old style These 2 books were pretty good, only because I have come to expect more from Nora Roberts, her trilogies are exceptional and these are fairly early work for her. If you love Nora, they are definitely still worth a rea d but if you're new to get books, don't start here.

    I was disappointed in this book. I expected a bit more plot between the episodes of graphically-described sex. It seemed to me to a very shallow story where I could figure out what was going to happen before the story got developed. There was very little character development and there was not that much true connection between the two main characters. Perhaps it is that I do not read this genre much and my taste is different from mainstream readers but I would rather read a good mystery any day. I was disappointed in this book.

    One good, one great Book 1 - Treasures Lost, Treasures Found 3☆ I did not feel the connection between Ky and Kate and their lack of communication was too frustrating. Book 2 - Risky Business 4.5☆ I felt a genuine connection growing between Jonas and Liz and their characters were interesting and likeable. The storyline moved at a good pace and kept my attention throughout.

    Another great book. I love this book. The scenery is great, the people are realistic, and charming. The ending was great as always. I've never read one of your books that I didn't like, some more than others, but all great. I have and have read most of your books, under both names, and will continue to buy every one I can.

    Rating 3 for Treasures Lost. Saying that it was very frustrating between the 2 main characters. Still it was a good read. Rating 5 for Risky business! I especially found Risky Business,exciting and fulfilling to the reader. I gave an overall Rating of 4 for both stories. I enjoy Nora Roberts books extremely!

    I really liked this book. Both stories were set at the seashore and I savored every description. The first story, although good, felt a bit awkward at times (relationship wise) but the second "Risky Business" was better. A bit more exciting, suspenseful, and simmering. Fun stuff! Well written.

    Dangerous Embrace Two books from a very good writer. The second one caught my fancy and was the one that I liked the best. I had a rough time getting through the first one. Both are very good....

    I am not a big fan of short stories but I did enjoy these two stories. The plots were simple and both stories held my interest. Nora Roberts stories have adventure, romance and danger which keep you reading. I am not a big fan of short stories but I did enjoy these two stories.

    Fast paced, great read. Nora Roberts never disappoints. I've read her books for years. Her words bring color and settings to such life you feel you are right there. She's a kindred spirit who will never forget what its like to be young.

    What more is there to say; it's Nora Roberts!! She is an amazing story teller and I am never disappointed. The two books are completely separate, but each are equally engaging. I highly recommend this 2-in-1 collection as well as anything else written by the incomparable Nora Roberts.
