Not having a dust jacket spoils the readings pleasure

I won't be buying hardcovers in future since you can't ensure a book jacket

Great Read - Trilogy all in one book

I loved the way Nora was able to put three stories all in one book. I felt the storyline flowed nicely between all the characters. Her characters are often very similar to other books but you gotta love them anyway. I thought the story was well written and I didn't want to put the book down. Again, Nora has done it! Whenever I get bored with other romance novels or mysteries, I always turn to Nora for a winner every time.

Fate Works In Mysterious Ways

A little different then what I usually read, but interesting none the less. I like the way Nora followed the fates from I THINK it was the 1800 to present day. 3 tiny silver statues impact the lives of several people, 8 of which we get to meet. Fate is definitely a factor here in showing that some things are just MENT to be and not always a coinky dink. Not overly mushy on the romance which was good for me and pretty darn cool on the suspense and search for these statues. Funny too, what more could you ask for in a good novel.

Romance and Adventure in a Fun Romp

This is not the best of Nora Roberts, but it's nevertheless a fun, easy-to-read and entertaining adventure that reminded me of "Topkapi," "Charade," and other lighthearted art-inspired movies. The plot concerns three small silver statues of mythology's three Fates. Alone, they are fairly valuable pieces. Together, as they were intended to be, they are priceless. So priceless that at least one antiques dealer, the nefarious Anita Gaye, is willing to kill to get her hands on them.Enter our heroes: A fine, Irish family named Sullivan, that inherited one of the statues, only to have it stolen by the horrible Ms. Gaye. Malachai, Gideon, and their sister Rebecca, all gorgeous, smart, and irresistible, want their statue back. And they want the other two as well, so they can, along with their mother Eileen, pump up their small boat-tour company, and expand in style.Roberts always tells a good story when the characters are Irish, and this is no exception. Each of the formidable siblings meets his or her match in the race for the statues: Malachai teams with shy, withdrawn Tia Marsh, an art historian and heir to one of New York's finest antiques houses; Gideon finds himself entwined (in more ways than one) with fiercely independent stripper Cleo Tolliver, who just happens to own one of the three statues, and Rebecca loses her heart to collector and security expert Jack Burdett.Will the Sullivans et al. retrieve the Fates? Will Anita Gaye self-destruct on her murderous quest? Will the three sets of lovers find out they were made for each other? Pick up the book and find out--it's a good, fast read.

Three heroes in one?

Nora Roberts never writes a bad novel and I certainly enjoyed this one. However, I have come to appreciate that spreading her stories about multiple main characters over three books is worth it, even if you have to wait to find out how the main problem is resolved. I agree with other readers that it was hard to get to know the characters in The Three Fates, though I felt the women were more clearly differentiated. The men, however, all seemed like slight variations of one another. I know there is always this core of similar traits in the romantic hero, such as strength, authority, powerful sexuality, and honor. Nevertheless, the male characters do need to come in different flavors, and I know Roberts can do this, as she did with the Quinn brothers, and in the Ardmore Irish novels. I look forward to the next trilogy.

Thrilling Romance

Nora Roberts is at it once again, turning out another thrilling novel complete with a satisfying story line and sensuous romance. In 1915, the LUSITANIA sank off the coast of Ireland, ostensibly taking with it the first of the Three Fates, small silver statues collectively worth a fortune. But Felix Greenfield, a thief, had the fortune to steal the Fate from collector Henry W. Wyley and survived the sinking of the ship. Fast-forward to the present when Felix's Irish descendant, Malachi Sullivan, attempts to recover the first Fate from Anita Gaye, owner of Morningside, a New York antiques dealer, who duped him of his treasure. In this quest, he pursues Dr. Tia Marsh, mythology expert and an heir to the Wyley fortune. With Tia's knowledge concerning the three female Greek statues, Malachi thinks she just might help his search for the remaining two Fates. Tia's fragility is craftily combined with her brilliance to highlight her strong characteristics, which continue to emerge when Malachi follows her back to New York. Brother Gideon Sullivan embarks on his own Fate-seeking quest when he locates Cleo Toliver in Prague. Cleo, a down-on-her luck dancer working at a strip club, just happened to have an ancestor who supposedly owned the second Fate. Even as Gideon and Cleo embark on a wild affair, some men that think that Cleo may have something they want, chase them through Prague. Enter Jack Burdett, owner of a multi-million-dollar security agency, who takes a trip to Ireland and visits Rebecca Sullivan, sister of the biblically named brothers. Is Jack's interest in Rebecca of a business nature as he enjoys a pleasure tour in her family's boat? When the Sullivans, along with Cleo and Jack, descend upon Tia's New York apartment, the three couples must combine their efforts to locate the Three Fates and prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. As the romance heats up, the pairs find that their past and futures are inextricably linked to the Fates. Fast-paced adventure enthralls the reader following the fascinating players as they travel across Europe and back to New York again in this sizzling romance. Ms. Roberts' ability shines as she creates six unique and appealing characters whose differences accentuate their strengths.
