Canyon is another book in the Westmoreland series by Brenda Jackson, and although I liked it well enough. I did not feel the connection with the characters that I did in Zane. I was furious at our leading lady because it is another case of withholding a child from a father and I just get angry a this now. Especially when they turn around and say they think it was justified, grrrrrrr!
It was still written in Brenda Jacksons easy manner and I did enjoy the flow and the general story, I do like a se

Canyon Westmoreland lost the love of his life 3 years ago to a major misunderstanding. Now she, Keisha Ashford, has come back to town. Every attempt to rectify the situation on Canyon's part has been greeted by rejection from Keisha. Determined to make things right, Canyon takes his attempts to a stalkerish level only to discover that he isn't the only one stalking Keisha.

Resolute that he will protect Keisha from this unknown threat, the angry and hurt of the past will have to be put aside. The

Westmorland Men Rock!

I received this as an Advance Reading Copy and Loved it. I dont see a date that I have to hold the review so here goes.

The Release date of this is August 6, 2013. DO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO TO GET THIS ON THAT DATE!!! Grab a cup of tea and curl up and get lost in the Westmorland World. You wont regret it!

Enter Canyon a ruggedly handsome man who is head over heals in love with Keisha. When he gets ready to propose he messed up big time by trusting another woman. He is found in a
Super quick read. For some reason I always enjoy the storyline when the mother keeps the baby away from its father. I think so because I like seeing the fathers reaction when he is utterly pissed off and wants to kill the mother. This was an ok read. Finding out who the stalker was in the end came out of left field. I think Brenda could have picked a better character for that role. It ruined the story a bit for me.

Written For Confessions From Romaholics

Another great success in the unique and characteristic style of Brenda Jackson, Canyon is a thrilling and wonderful story with another original and amazing character of the Westmoreland clan that treats the most simple and universal theme in the everyday life: love with all its ups and downs. Whether it’s about finding love and losing it, or finding love and looking for ways on keeping it, Brenda Jackson’s stories are well written, uncomplicated, sizzling

It's always tricky jumping into a series you haven't read. When it's #26 then it's not surprising the first couple of chapters seem like reading the Begats in the Bible.

But there was enough about Canyon Westmoreland, the hero, and his estranged lover Keisha to get my interest. I love reunions and it seemed like both of them never really looked at anyone else in the three years they were apart. The fact that Keisha was hiding a secret (a little two year old one) made the reunion fraught with emot

And the Westmorelands are back! I loved Canyon's story, not only was it about his relationship with Keisha, and trying to make her believe he never cheated on her - but about discovering Keisha kept the birth of their son from him. There's something that are hard to forgive. I liked the fact that we started with him still having feelings for her, then he discovers he has a son and he gets mighty pissed off a Keisha. Add in the fact someone is trashing Keisha's house, and threatening his newly di ...more
Canyon was a pretty interesting romance to read. I flew through the book in one sitting and enjoyed the story. Canyon and Keisha new each other from their past, but broke up because Keisha thought Canyon had been unfaithful to her with her best friend, and moved away. But that wasn't the case! The best friend lied, but Keisha chose to believe the lie. But little did Canyon know, while Keisha was away, she gave birth to their son. A few years pass and she moves back to her hometown and her and Ca ...more

What’s Done in the Dark Comes to Light!!!

I loved this story!!!!!!!!!! Canyon is my hero. (Sigh)

A misunderstanding kept them apart for almost three years. When she comes back to town he tries to go after her, but she has a secret she wants to keep from him.

It wasn’t until Canyon follows her home that he uncovers the real reason why Keisha doesn’t want to see him. Boy, do the story heat up after that discovery. Canyon is a take charge kind of guy, but isn’t all the Westmoreland men the same way. C

It was a well rounded story with a great twist and a sweet love story. I loved Canyon and his heart.
My view

Canyon was the original book in the series I wanted to read. The description was interesting enough to read the previous book in this series. Since he shows for the first time, Canyon takes over the story and get the reader interested in his life and his feelings. He is more than a handsome man with a great sex-appeal.

Keisha has always love Canyon,

Please leave comments on Pattycake's 4 sweet pea review at

In Canyon, Brenda Jackson has written a powerful story of how misunderstandings and lack of communication can rip lives apart and lead to unforeseen consequences. The blurb covers the basics, but I can't add anything more because I don't want to spoil it. You really need to read it yourself to get the full effect. This is another entry into the larger than life saga of the Westmoreland family, but

 Westmorelands don't take very kindly to rejection of any kind. With that being said, Canyon wants to know why Keisha won't give him another chance after a misunderstanding tears them apart. What Canyon doesn't know is the secret that Keisha has been hiding from him is the reason for her distance. Can they forgive and make their new family work?

I love romance novels with kids involved and this book was no exception. This book had some intrigue reminiscent of Madaris novels that I really enjoyed.

have loved every book I’ve read of Brenda Jackson’s. The Westmoreland Series is one of my favorites and I love to continue reading about the ways all the siblings and cousins fall in love. Canyon was one of my favorite books. I completely understood where Keisha was coming from. I mean who would believe that their man wasn’t messing around when she walks in on him coming out of the shower in a towel with a naked woman in his bed, a naked woman who was screaming that they had slept together.

I know I am late to the party but I have just read my first Brenda Jackson book and enjoyed it! Don't ask me why I started at book 26. A book buddy was very kindle and brought me book 1 in kindle format as this is not available in the UK.

I have to admit I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Even though there was some angst in the story it was classy and they were still respectful to each other. Nicely done.

When I need a break, a good read I can count on for an interesting story but nothing too heavy, I turn to Harlequin. I’ve been doing this since I was in my mid-teens. That’s right: Catcher in the Rye balanced by any number of Harlequin romances. With James A. Michener’s The Source, I read a chapter, read a romance, read a chapter (back when I was fifteen, I think). It isn’t that I dislike heavier books, but it’s more that I need a bigger beat difference
Three years ago Canyon and Keisha broke up over a misunderstanding. Canyon was hurt and furious that she hadn't trusted him enough to hear his side of the story, and Keisha felt betrayed by him. She moved away, taking a very important secret with her. Now she's back and she still won't have anything to do with him. Canyon is determined to confront her and follows her one day - only to discover what that secret is.

Canyon is an attorney that is determined to plead his case with his ex-girlfriend Keisha. She caught him in a compromising (very damning) situation with her best friend and was convinced that he was cheating on her. Canyon knows he was not cheating and he wants her to see reason.

Keisha knows what she saw and accepted her friend’s tearful apology. However, she will not tolerate being in love with a man who has been unfaithful. Her distrustful attitude towards men has a lot to do with the grudge s

Canyon Westmoreland was livid. Not only had Keisha Ashford believed he had set out to harm her, she had the audacity to keep his son from him. He had every right. And he wanted answers. Keisha was ready for the weekend. She was on her way to pick up her son when she noticed two vehicles behind her that screamed road rage. When one of the drivers made his presence known, Keisha knew her weekend plans were not going to happen. Although she wanted nothing to do with Canyon, she was glad he had foll ...more

This is the second in a trilogy that features three of the Westmoreland clan.
I understand that this is one of many in a long series, but there are multiple scenes and pages just explaining who is related to whom and why. Not to mention the children of the aforementioned and the siblings of wives or husbands.
Completely unnecessary.
Fans of the series will know who everyone is and new readers aren't left with anything to discover about the previous books because everything is squished into this l

The day he follows her home from the office to talk about their past, a whole new mystery surfaces. Someone else is following her and her home is trashed....

Canyon Westmoreland is the subject of the second book of a trilogy about the Colorado branch of this clan. Unlike some of his other family members, he is very clear about the woman he wants. Even after a misunderstanding involving infidelity breaks them apart and Keisha Ashford moves away suddenly, Canyon refuses to give up. Even if it means borderline stalking her upon her return to Denver three years later, when she won't meet with him. He finally catches up to her to discover that she has giv ...more
