I really liked this book. There are three brothers whose stories are written by three different authors. I enjoyed the way it was written with each story building on the previous one rather than three completely different stories. The main thread is the kidnapping of the half-sister they didn't know they had. She has been taken by a drug lord who wants some of their father's land for his drug operation. Wyatt puts out a call to his brothers to come home and help. First to arrive is Virgil. He's ...more

This was a fun trio of tales that have an overall unifying theme yet showcase three different strong men in a nice romantic suspense tale.

Julie Miller’s “Virgil” provides the introduction to the overall theme for the book and centers on the middle brother, Virgil (Bull) McCabe, who is a detective in Chicago but returns to his childhood home to help search despite his disdain for his adulterous father. Painful memories are mitigated by his reacquaintance with his best friend, the ‘girl next door’

Too much going on since I started this book - why it took me nearly 15 days to read it.

Ok, so the Hs' father had affairs and, after their mom was killed, the two older ones left home. 10 years have passed, a half sister from one of the affairs has been kidnapped, and the youngest brother called them home.

Now... from observation, when a parental unit has caused such a disturbance in the family force, there's never any real reconciliation. And the reason for that is, the parent in question is not

What’s better than reading a book by an award winning author? How about reading a book written by three award winning authors? Authors Julie Miller, Dana Marton, and Paula Graves each stand alone as solid romantic suspense authors. However, they have brought their talents together in a new Harlequin Intrigue that introduces readers to not one, not two, but three very sexy cowboys.
‘Three Cowboys’ brings the McCabe brothers home for Christmas, but not to celebrate the holiday. They are coming home

This novel is broken down to individually tell the stories of the McCabe brothers of Texas.

Detective Virgil “Bull” McCabe has been absent from his family home for a decade. Upon his return, he discovers another family secret and rediscovers his childhood friend, Tracy Cobb.

Morgan McCabe is an ex-soldier who returns home when summoned by his siblings. Once there, he runs face-to-face with his former flame, Dakota Dayton, and her toddler son, Cody.

Sheriff Wyatt McCabe has faced many criminals in h

I have never heard Julie Miller and Paula Graves -- I've read several books from Dana Marton so I thought I would give other 2 ladies a try. Man oh man, I'm so glad I did. I hope I could get my hands on Julie's and Paula's books since I have alot of Dana's already.

Three brothers spread out then came back due to finding a missing sister. It is very interesting to see how 3 brothers dealt with their own issues and seeing the woman they all fell in love with in their own way. Its definately a must

Really good book. I almost didn't notice it was written by three different authors, they made the stories complement each other very well.

These three brothers give everything for their family, even facing their father after many years of resentment, if that helps to rescue their little sister from the man who kidnapped her in order to get their family land.

In the meantime, Virgil and Morgan will have to face again women of their past and Wyatt will have to deal with a very independent one.

This is a fantastic book. I loved getting to know each of the brothers as they worked to save the sister they had just found out they had. Add a father trying to live down a past that chased his sons away years ago, a drug dealer who wants their land "or else", and old friends who just might want to be more than friends. Danger, intrigue, and romance wound together by three authors that each bring their unique voice to a great story. It was hard to put down to the very end.

Good book!!

I really liked this book, 3 seperate stories of 3 brothers that come back to their hometown to rescue thier sister from a drug-lord. All three brothers have an issue with their dad who wasn't much of a father. Of course they have left behind women they were in love with and coming home they rekindle their love for each other. I love cowboys,and strong-will men that can show their love for the woman in their lives.
This is a trilogy and yet one book. It is broken up into 3 stories that each feature a brother. The kicker is the story arc continues throughout the whole book. It just picks up with the new brother as the previous brother gets his HEA. Not read a book like this before - quite clever. The stories and story blend together seamlessly and yet are written by three authors.

Very nice set of 3 short stories that tell of brothers working together to save their little sister from a kidnapping drug lord. I was surprised by how well the different authors melded their works together and made it work. Great plot! Wished it were longer! Maybe there are some sequels out there in the works?
