A must read. The chemistry between this couple is hot and steamy. Great job Ms. Jackson.
**Another Bachelor bites the Dust**

I truly enjoyed this book. It is hot, sexy, and proves that a man who has sworn to remain a bachelor can be proven wrong by the right woman. Winston and Ainsley's story is one for the record books. The chemistry between these two characters is instant and grows over time. It develops into a wonderful love story that had to be told.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you get this book, you will not be disappointed *****5 star Read!!

I am so in love with the Bachelors in Demand Series! Mrs. Jackson, you've done it AGAin!!! Winston's and Ainsley's story was great and I loved it from first to last page. The love scene's were hott and I enjoyed them getting to know each other outside of the bedroom!! Another great read and I can't wait for Zion's and Virgil's stories and the women who will have them "whipped"!!
Another bachelor gone from the bachelor club. I enjoyed Winston's story. He meet his match with Ainsley. She was determined to get a story and ended up getting a whole lot more. Winston being the loner he was never saw it coming. So once the magic happened it was no way to stop it. Great read!

Wow, Winston fell hard. The passion and chemistry between him and Ainsley burned up the pages.

This is another sweet but sexy romantic tale from Brenda Jackson. Ainsley St. James is feisty but very passionate, just the combination that Winston Coltrane desires for a one night stand. But the one night seems to never end...

This is one of those love stories that you just want to see the characters unite because they belong together no matter what. You will enjoy the interaction between Ainsley and Winston because they are just likable people who just want to have fun but in the process disco

Whenever Brenda Jackson publishes a book my heart smiles and my iPad rejoices. The reason I love Brenda's books is because every time I'm done I look around and a say "That's What I Wan"t. Her books are so believable yet they leave you with this "I know this is a book and this is not real feeling". I have a connection with her books, mainly because she writes connecting series (which I love) so my favorite characters never really go away. If you've never read any of her books and you like romanc ...more

This is one of the better Brenda Jackson books I have read in a while. From the very first page the story drew me in. Winston and Ainsley had passion for days. They were on fire in between the sheets each and every time they came together. The chemistry was off the charts. Ainsley was so persistent in getting what she wanted professionally that she wore Winston down and totally changed his personal outlook on life. It was nice catching up with the other bachelors and I cant wait to read about th ...more

Let me start off by saying I'm a big Brenda Jackson fan and have read nearly all of her books. Now that that's out of the way, I'm dying to see her do something new. Out of the box. Totally different from anything she's ever done. Because while the characters and storylines change, the writing (tone/wording/IDK) doesn't change and makes me feel like I'm reading the same ol', same ol' book after book after book. I feel like the Bachelor series is supposed to be youthful and racier('I'm gonna take ...more

Another bachelor in demand has been bitten...somehow I skipped this one...glad I realized it...because I was CAUGHT UP in Winston and Ainsley's story...can't wait for Zion to fall...well DONE Mrs. Jackson!
What I loved most about this book was the landscape and the learning. I enjoy reading about different places and learning about new things. Bachelor Unclaimed encompassed both, for me.

When you read many romance books you quickly learn there's a sure fire formula used in every one. So, when you come across a book with a good setting, interesting characters and a plot that goes beyond the norm it deserves to be acknowledged.
Alicia Jespersen(BehindThePicketFence)
Though there was great potential behind this book and these characters I just wasn't impressed. This was not a favorite of mine. There wasn't nearly enough story development or character development for that matter. This story was carried along by an over abundance of sex scenes that just left me with an unsatisfied feeling at the end of this novel.

Winston Coltrane is one of three remaining members in the Bachelors in Demand club. When he takes a break away from his work on his private island, he meets Ainsley St. James who after losing a bid for mayor of her small hometown is taking a break of her own. There is an immediate attraction between the two of them so they agree to a one night stand thinking the chance of their meeting again is slim to none. When Ainsley shows up on Winston's private island she learns a girl c

I love Brenda Jackson books but this Bachelor Series isn't her best. I liked the hot & steamy scenes between Winston & Ainsley. The storyline is boring & forgettable. Bachelor Untamed is my favorite.

Originally Reviewed on The Bewitching Bibliophile

I always enjoy Brenda's writing and this one was of course another great addition to the read pile. I did take away a star because of some of the thoughts the male protagonist had; they were kinda creepy and I really didn't feel like they went along with the characterization she had been giving us up until that point. Other than that creepy moment, this story was a wonderful quick romantic, sensual read that I gobbled up really quickly, because I

The Bachelor in Demand Club is made up of the sons of six Morehouse men who made a pact to stay in touch by being godfather's to each other's children. The god-brothers formed their own pact to remain single for as long as they possibly could. Judging by the previous three books, the number of members in the club is dwindling.

This book is hot right out of the gate with a one night stand between Winston Coltrane and Ainsley St. James, who meet in a nightclub in Hilton Head. The chemistry is inst
I've read a few books from Brenda Jackson in the past and she never disappoints. I'd recommend her if you're wanting a fun, light-hearted romance. There a little heat in the bedroom scenes, but the old school way. Nothing over the top or embarrassing to admit that you're reading. Haha! This book was short and sweet, which makes these type of books perfect for summer or vacation reading. If you've read any romance novels, you know that there's a formula that works for these kind of books. If the ...more
I’m a huge Brenda Jackson fan and have been since reading Delaney’s Desert Sheikh. I’ve been hooked on her sexy tales of family and romance. And if I’m brutally honest, I also love her for representing different ethnicities, although most of her stories feature African American characters.

In Bachelor Unclaimed, she introduces marine biologist Winston Coltrane, another Bachelor in Demand, who has sworn off permanent relationships with women after a heartbreak in college. He meets Ainsley in the

This is an ongoing series and I only got to read this book, it's really clear that they are all stand-alone except for a tinny story about their connection.The book tells Winston story and we got to understand why he's so against a relationship and how in the end it was really easy for him to fall in love with Ainsly.

I loved Winston story and how in the end he fell in love with a reporter trying to discover the secret about a very famous and reclusive doctor doing some experiments that could be

One more of the Bachelor's club meets his match.
Bachelor unclaimed is the story of Winston Coltrane. Can he continue to be a die heart player or will he open his heart to love for the right woman.
The chemistry is instant, but when it is over neither expects to see each other again. This was such a great story of unexpected love.

Brenda Jackson penned yet another novel that was engaging, intriguing and that kept one thoroughly enthralled. Bachelor Unclaimed is the story of Winston Coltrane, a marine biologist that has developed the “next big thing” a secret major medical formula. Also, there’s Ainsley St. James, a former NY Times reporter that quits her job to return “home” to run for mayor….a post that she was sure to get as the hometown favorite.

These two meet, spend a night together and plan to never see each other ag

Beware if how people can come in your life.

Although some if these things seem not likely I was entertained while I am recovering from bed rest.
Really liked the second meeting between Winston and Ainsley. That was nice.

Winston and Ainsley are so cute and interesting. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. I was not disappointed. Great read. All the brothers books are wonderful.

I love the Bachelor in Demand series. The relationship between Ainsley St James (former mayoral candidate) and Winston Coltrane (marine biologist) is hot and steamy. I am enjoying this series and look forward to the next one!
We met Winston, suave marine biologist, and Ainsley, reporter/defeated , small town New Jersey defeated, mayoral candidate, gravitating to each as sparks erupt from their touch. The novel starts off very sexually charged and juicy. Wow!!
But as the tale progresses, you see a deeper side on Winston being portrayed than that of Ainsley' s, so you actually watch him fall in love. His realization and reaction to this fall were amusing. The seahorses' mating research and the Gullah historical aspects

Quick read but this is my first Brenda Jackson novel but it surely won't be my last. Can't wait to catch up on the rest of the Bachelor Series. :)
