Oh, those Westmorelands!!! A boring masquerade ball turns into a hot affair! Only in Ms Jackson's world! This steamy novel, unites Olivia Jefferies and Reggie Westmoreland (of the Atlanta Westmorelands). Olivia's fine brothers, Duane and Terrence, who are introduced and or dealt with in other Jackson novels, are also woven in this story.

Although I am not as adventurous, Oliva's spontaneity in this story is to be admired --- you have to hand it to that sista! What began as a one night fling with

Reginald and Olivia Westmoreland were meant to be! Cute boy meets girl story.

Okay, so I want to be honest. In my opinion, this wasn't the greatest read for me. Maybe it's because I have been reading books back to back for the last couple of days, or maybe my taste in books are just different.

On to the facts:
There was no excitement. No real conflict, everything seemed too easy. The one true "problem" was predictable and quickly revealed and settled.

Usually I like to read novels with a little comedy, the couples bickering and falling in love. I love moments when you set th

Politically Incorrect

Reggie Westmoreland is the last single Westmoreland male in Atlanta. With a successful accounting firm, he's now ready to throw his hat into the political ring running for the Senate. Things only seem to get better when he meets a woman at a masquerade ball. Masks hid their identities but not their passion for each other. Once her true identity is revealed as the daughter of his political opponent, will Reggie retreat?

Tall, dark, Westmoreland - just the way I like them! Thi

Brenda Jackson's a master of the short-form romance. Even in just 178 pages, these were well-realized characters with realistic emotions and conflict. Steamy without being awkward. There was the obligatory listing of all the previous characters in the series (this is #15, after all), but it was short and not intrusive, and I never felt like I'd missed something because it's been quite a while since I read one from this series.

Another wonderful romance that blends the heart, soul and mind in the ways that truly matters....the heart. Reginald Westmoreland and Olivia Jefferies' story is as captivating as all the rest. There is nothing to not like about The Westmorelands. The Westmorelands make dreams come true.

I liked Olivia and Reggie. I still don't believe that 2 people can have sex with masks on all night and still not recognize the person the next day. What about voice familiarity? With that said it's a sweet premise though. Two strong characters full of family loyalty and hopeful for something more. Unfortunately being in the public eye will ruin the hope of privacy to develop a relationship.

Even when Olivia tried to end the relationship, Reggie is persistent because he seems to know that Olivia

Perfect love!!!

Awesome story. Loved the secrets and all the twists. Another Westmoreland bitten by the love bug. Who's next??? On to book 16.

I loved the this story. Reggie is currently my favorite Westmoreland, although I seem to say that every time I finish a new Westmoreland story. I love the fact that Mrs. Jackson didn't waste a lot of time for Reggie and Olivia to get together. It was fast paced and straight to the point.

It was nice revisiting the family and I can not wait for Temperature Rising, when Terrance Holy Terror Jeffries falls in love. I also hope Orin and Cathy either get their own story or they come together in Terran

Well, the last of the Atlanta Wesmorelands has FINALLY found his soul mate. Reggie and Olivia's romance is sweet and sensual. Mrs. Jackson provides another quick and intriguing read while also setting the stage for a the next group of Westmorelands. I can't wait to find out what she has in store for the Colorado Westmorelands.

I bought this book yesterday and started reading today. Did you see the date that I completed the read (TODAY) it was that good. It's been a while since I read a book like this....reminds me of 1993 timeframe of how authors use to write.

I love how Reggie & Olivia didn't let politics stop them from being together. I love what happened to senator Reed at the end. Senator Reed got what he deserved.

I liked the premise of this story but the villian and the conflict was predictable. I still enjoyed the story and think it's a perfect weekend read!
