THE NEXT ALWAYS: NORA ROBERTS' NEWEST BEST SELLER - A GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE NEXT ALWAYS
Book One of The Inn Boonsboro Trilogy
BY NORA ROBERTS
ABOUT THE BOOK:
"America's favorite writer" (The New Yorker) begins an all-new trilogy-inspired by the inn she owns and the town she loves. 

The historic hotel in BoonsBoro, Maryland, has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumored hauntings. Now it's getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect of the family, Beckett's social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there's another project he's got his eye on: the girl he's been waiting to kiss since he was fifteen...


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Nora Roberts is truly a publishing phenomenon. With over 250 million copies of her novels in print, she has come a long way since she wrote her first novel in a spiral notebook using a No. 2 pencil. Now she has published over 150 novels and her work has been optioned and made into films, excerpted in national magazines and translated in over twenty-five different countries. "I always have stories running around in my head," she explains. "Once I start putting them down on paper, I just keep going; I just keep writing." In addition to her amazing success in mainstream fiction, Nora Roberts remains committed to writing for her category romance audience that took her to into their heart in 1981 with her very first book, a Silhouette romance.

Nora Roberts continues to write futuristic romantic suspense as
J.D. Robb, and her characters Eve Dallas and Roarke have become two of her most popular creations ever. Her J.D. Robb titles are hailed as "a perfect balance of suspense, futuristic police procedure and steamy romance...truly fine entertainment" by Publishers Weekly.

The remarkable Ms. Roberts did not become a success overnight. By the time her first novel,
Irish Thoroughbred, was published in 1981, she already had three years of hard work behind her and several rejected manuscripts languishing in drawers. Today, according to Entertainment Weekly, "her stories have fueled the dreams of twenty-five million readers." One of America's leading novelists, her books are published around the world. She is frequently invited to promote her novels in other countries. Her recent travels took her to England, Italy, Australia and Japan to meet fans, fellow authors and aspiring writers.
 Her extraordinary accomplishments have also received recognition from her peers. The first author ever to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America's Hall of Fame, and the first author to receive their Centennial Award when she published her 100th novel Montana Sky, she is the recipient of almost every award given in recognition of excellence in romance writing. In 1997, she was honored at the Romance Writers of America National Conference when she was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition to her awards from the Romance Writers of America, she has also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Waldenbooks, and she has been honored by B. Dalton Booksellers, the New Jersey Chapter of Romance Writers of America, and BookRak Distributors.

The youngest of five children, she was born in Silver Spring, Maryland. She now lives in Keedysville, Maryland.
AN EXCERPT FROM THE NEXT ALWAYS: 
CHAPTER ONE

The stone walls stood as they had for more than two centuries‚ simple‚ sturdy‚ and strong. Mined from the hills and the valleys‚ they rose in testament to man’s inherent desire to leave his mark‚ to build and create. Over those two centuries man married the stone with brick‚ with wood and glass‚ enlarging‚ transforming‚ enhancing to suit the needs‚ the times‚ the whims. Throughout‚ the building on the crossroads watched as the settlement became a town‚ as more buildings sprang up. The dirt road became asphalt; horse and carriage gave way to cars. Fashions flickered by in the blink of an eye. Still it stood‚ rising on its corner of The Square‚ an enduring landmark in the cycle of change. It knew war‚ heard the echo of gunfire‚ the cries of the wounded‚ the prayers of the fearful. It knew blood and tears‚ joy and fury. Birth and death. It thrived in good times‚ endured the hard times. It changed hands and purpose‚ yet the stone walls stood.

In time‚ the wood of its graceful double porches began to sag. Glass broke; mortar cracked and crumbled. Some who stopped at the light on the town square might glance over to see pigeons flutter in and out of broken windows and wonder what the old building had been in its day. Then the light turned green‚ and they drove on.

Beckett knew.

I agree with Deedles in that when I read who the author was of this novel that alone made me interested. I too have enjoyed many of her books both as Nora Roberts and a.k.a. J.D. Robb. The descriptive language used in your insert is what I like about her writing. Thanks for the opportunity.
