I really enjoyed this book.

The writing started out a little rough and the introduction of the main characters could have been smoother, but it was not long before I was dragged into the story and the characters began to pop off the page.

This story is perfect for those who don't like the love at first sight deals. Here the love develops ever so slowly and sweetly with solid reasons for the H & h's attraction physically and emotionally to each other.

The pace was steady, a
Laurel is my favorite in this series. As a matter of fact, ever since reading Iris for the first over 10 years ago, I knew I would just love Hen's story—and I was right. I was in love with him after the first chapter...which was truly amazing since I never feel that strongly about the hero in a story. Even the heroine, Laurel, was not too bad. She was strong and had some definite issues but she wasn't too pushy about them. Her child was charming but a little tortured himself, which didn't detr ...more

De los siete hermanos, Monty y Hen son los que más me llamaban la atención por ser gemelos y tener personalidades bastantes diferentes. El primero es bastante energético, no piensa las cosas antes de hacerlas por no decir que es muy inmaduro y cabezota. El segundo mostraba ser alguien que se piensa las cosas dos veces, no le gusta hablar pero no tiene poblemas con decir lo que no le parece, taciturno, frío y es tachado por pistoleo (Zac, la primera vez que conoció a Rose le dijo que Hen le gusta ...more

Este libro de la serie lo esperaba con ganas porque Hen me parecía un personaje profundo y del que sabíamos poco. Meditabundo, taciturno y pistolero, este personaje siente que no se conoce a sí mismo, no sabe qué hacer con su vida o a dónde pertenece hasta que se enamora de Laurel.

Ella es una viuda que debe cuidar de su hijo pequeño en un pueblo donde la tratan mal, hasta que la familia de su marido muerto, los Blackthorne quieren llevarse al pequeño Adam. Sin embargo, el nuevo comisario lo impe

I enjoyed this book to no end! I was propelled forward through every page needing to know if the hero and heroine could make it through each and every hoop and overcome their differences and their own reservations and end up together.
I'm so glad that I picked this book up and read it even after realizing that it was the fourth in a series that I hadn't started. I'd love to read the rest of them now. I like the Randolph family and have begun to guess and hope which girls may end up with which br

For some reason, I found this one to be a bit dry and hard to finish. I was excited that Hen was a virgin hero, and I liked him and Laurel and her son, Cody. But it just wasn't that enthralling to me. I didn't feel that much chemistry between Hen and Laurel to be honest. Even though Iris and Monty drove me crazy, I thought their book was more interesting, although they aren't anywhere near as nice as Hen and Laurel were.

This was a very, very entertaining, emotional, and at times a very funny book. I enjoyed it a lot. Laurel was just the right person for Hen. He was just the right person for him. I liked him because he was not afraid to show her his emotions.

I wish I had all of them..
My favorite in this series thus far. Held my attention better than the previous books. Enjoyed Hen's metamorphosis throughout the progression of the book.

Not bad the most unique aspects were the realist little kid and the cross dressing brother

Liked this one from start to end, Laurel is a real woman with moxie and guts. Hen is a man's man that still manages to break the mold and their unconventional family makes for a unique read.
