Publisher's Summary

The unseen assailant attacked Dr. Miranda Jones outside her Maine home as she returned from a busy lecture tour. After terrorizing her with a knife held to her throat, he stole her purse, slashed her tires, and disappeared.

Shaken and bruised, Miranda was determined to put the assault out of her mind, and welcomed the distraction offered by a summons to Italy to verify the authenticity of a Renaissance bronze of a Medici courtesan known as The Dark Lady.

However, instead of cementing Miranda's reputation as a leading authority in her field, the bronze nearly destroys it when her professional judgment is called into question, and the bronze is declared a hoax.

Desperate to restore her credibility and prove The Dark Lady is really a previously unknown work of Michelangelo, Miranda turns to Ryan Boldari, a seductive - and supposedly reformed - art thief. For Miranda, forced to rely on herself and a partner with his own hidden agenda, the only way home is filled with treachery, deception, and a danger that threatens everything she loves.

    "A Roberts is a Roberts"

    One of the joys of a Nora Roberts book is that you know what you are getting. This is a good yarn, with a few interesting twists, and does not disappoint on the 'happy ever after, with all the loose ends picked up' front.

    "Typical N Roberts"

    Daft romance with a bit of a thriller thrown in. A bronze artifact is believed to be false, ruining the heroine's reputation; and wouldn't you just know it, the art thief who may have had something to do with it falls in love with her! Haha.

    "A fun thrilling mystery with some art and sex."

    A strong principled but introverted heroine finds herself forced to work with a dashing, rambunctious thief in order to unravel the mysterious art thefts and forgeries surrounding her.
    In my opinion this is one of Roberts's best novels: no supernatural stuff, nothing too gory or dark, and what it does contain is wonderful: two very different characters who challenge one another, fabulous works of art, many mysterious crimes and lots of beautiful locals. It's romantic, very sexy and funny. I might just listern to it all over again! The narrator did a pretty good job, too.

    "Narrator reading in a breathy whisper."

    Nora Roberts is it go to write writer for me. I took a chance and bought a Nora Roberts audible book. The whole book was read in a breathy whisper. I almost could not finish the book. Before I buy a new Nora Roberts audible book I will check to see who the narrator is. If it's the same one I will not be buying it.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the relationship between Ryan and Miranda happened.


    Have you listened to any of Erika Leigh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to her performances before but she did well. I liked how she was able to go from Italian to Irish to Proper English in an instant.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book was a reasonable choice for me as a commuter who listens to audiobooks on the drive -- it made the time by go quickly and was simple enough that I didn't have to concentrate very hard.


    What other book might you compare Homeport to and why?

    This is similar to a Harlequin Intrigue book, but with a better developed story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator could be inconsistent, especially with accents, and has a little bit of a monotone. She uses special effects to represent phone calls and characters' inner monologues.

    "Okay story great performance"

    I really enjoyed Montana Sky by Roberts and performed by Leigh so I downloaded Homeport. The story is not near as engaging and enjoyable as Montana Sky. The main character is a bit infuriating. And I wish the end goal of the women in Roberts' books was more than marriage.

    "Another Roberts Winner!"

    I enjoy all Nora Roberts books, especially her series. Again her books never fail to deliver suspense, humor and intrigue. I loved it and the narrator was excellent.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Homeport to be better than the print version?

    Hard to say. I love this story but couldn't stand when the narrator whispered to show emotion. Almost had to give it up.


    Did Erika Leigh do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No. Erika was a decent enough narrator at times, but when she whispered in order to show emotion . . . ugh. So annoying!
