If Freud wanted to know what women want, he should have asked Nora Roberts, who seems to have it down cold and can reproduce it several times a year. In the last installment of her Dream trilogy (Daring to Dream, Holding the Dream) about three friends who grew up together in a mansion in Big Sur, rich-girl Laura Templeton--""so polished, so perfect""--meets her love match in bad-boy Michael Fury, a modern-day Heathcliff who is renting her stables. Michael, a handsome mutt of a man with no roots and a yearning heart, doesn't really know if he has much to give an American princess like Laura, who is recovering from a bad divorce and raising two children. But the reader knows, and Roberts sees to it that Laura gets it in spades. As formula romance, it's unbeatable. (Aug.)
