But she never expected that when she met #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Nora Roberts presents two classic stories of love that arrives like a storm and changes everything… Second Nature Lee Radcliffe got the scoops that no one else did, the interviews nobody could score. Like bestselling horror writer—and notorious recluse—Hunter Brown.

    The first story stole my breath from the first 3 chapters. I was so entranced I devoured the story in less then two days. The characterization was superb. Chemistry between the two main characters was electric. The language was awe inspiring for a hobbyist writer like me. The other story was good too but this one I loved!

    Lessons Learned (Carlo Franconi and Juliet Trent) was a part of another 2in1 set, Table For Two (Summer Desserts/Lessons Learned). I didn't realize this until I started to read the story. There is no correlation between the two stories in Sweet Rains, it just seems like HQN was just looking to place just any story for a special release issue. The first release of the 2in1 was better set as it was related because of two good friends, the French pastry chef Summer Lyndon and the Italian chef, Carl Lessons Learned (Carlo Franconi and Juliet Trent) was a part of another 2in1 set, Table For Two (Summer Desserts/Lessons Learned).

    You know what you're getting with a Nora Robert's book. A light fluffy read, everything always works out in the end. Of the two stories, I thought the first-Second Nature was much better. The male lead was interesting and there was a very believable glimpse into an author's life. The second story irritated me quite a bit. The male lead was overly smarmy to me.

    Another duet by Nora Roberts with 2 quick reads Second Nature and Lessons Learned. Although both were enjoyable I definitely preferred the second story, Lessons Learned. If you like Nora Roberts these are classics. If your looking for great summers reads look no further.

    It was hard not to compare these two stories put together in one book, because they were so similar. There were two successful women who met celebrities in their jobs. The only thing that makes these two stories different is the type of celebrity that dictated most of the conversations in the book. I personally enjoyed the first book Second Nature better, because I liked hearing about how an author thinks.

In the book, Hunter, a famous novelist, was guarded and he didn't let many people into his world because of his family. The entire book seemed more genuine. The second story, Lessons Learned, did not appeal to me as much, because Carlo was an Italian chef and a playboy. He said cheesy Italian lines throughout the book and he seemed like the type of character that never changes, and was very cocky about his appearance, I was annoyed and didn't enjoy reading about him.

    First story was blah. I couldn't even finish the second one. One thing I have to say about Nora - her writing really improved - relatively speaking - since her early days. On the other hand, why are all her books the same? And why do I keep reading them? First story was blah. I couldn't even finish the second one.

    Was entertaining to read 2 stories set and I am assuming written in the 80's. I liked Second Nature (who can resist Sedona as a setting) more than Lessons Learned (phone booths and Velcro sneakers made me smile).

    It was well written. I didn't realize at first that it was written in the late 80's but then really enjoyed that perspective and it was nice to read a book where there wasn't a plethora of technology and cell phone usage.

    This is the first novel that I am reading, which is based on romance. It was a satisfying experience. I liked the individuality of each characters. But both novels are almost same, only the background of the story changes.

    The first of the two novels had an interesting male character. The second novel, "Lessons Learned" was a good story. Enjoyed very much. The first of the two novels had an interesting male character. The second novel, "Lessons Learned" was a good story. Enjoyed very much.
