Breed True was an interesting western historical with a realistic, gritty feel. The heroine, Julie, was married to an abusive man who swindled people out of money and used her in his schemes. She finally left him after she gives birth to twin baby girls. At the beginning of the book, Julie comes upon her husband stabbed and about to die. He had stolen her baby girls and she needs him to tell her where they were taken. The sheriff and a few townspeople set up a situation where Julie is forced to ...more
I really enjoyed this historical romance. The author did a very good job setting the time and place of the story. When I think back, I'm amazed that the story mostly took place in an adobe cabin on Grady Hawk's Texas ranch. But you never felt like the story needed to move around. This was almost entirely the story of a very damaged woman learning to trust a good man. Julie was very well written. She had been abused by her husband both physically and mentally but she was not a down trodden misera ...more

Neat idea and neat characters, but not enough relationship for me. She was cold for the whole book.

Most of the conflict was in Julie’s head. She doesn’t like him, doesn’t want him, wills herself not to get pregnant. From the beginning he is a surprisingly good husband, provider and loving father to her baby twin girls. He is patient with Julie. His kisses and touches are appealing. Julie feels fulfillment and happiness with this new life. But she continues a stubborn rigid refusal to be nice to

WOW, I just LOVE Gem's writing.

I also like a good western romance and erotic makes it better. LOL.

Julie is married to a gambler and an abuser. She would so like to get away from him. When he's fould lying in the street, a knife in his chest, she's worried he won't tell her where he took her twin daughters.

Grady Hawks is half indian and half white. He needs to find a wife that will give in a white baby, so he can claim land that others want to take away from him. If he can produce a white baby, t
An amazing hero, endearing and compelling, and a very touching story.
This was a truly amazing story about two people who wanted one thing but got so much more in the end. The character of Grady is perhaps one of the most genuinely amazing heroes I have ever read about. All men should have a little of Grady in them, someone who is so strong yet so gentle. I just fell in love with the idea of these two finding one another and them opening their hearts to each other so beautifully. The little twin

I picked this one up from Liquid Silver books today, and was glad I did.

Half-Kiowa rancher Grady Hawks owns 9,000 acres of water-enriched Texas grassland. But when the Eastern Land Company moves to steal Hawks Nest Ranch, claiming Grady is too Indian to rightfully control it, Grady decides to apply what he's learned in mixing different strains of cattle. He needs to find a red-haired wife and breed back to the fair skin and Scottish features of his father.

With a white child and wife, he plans t

I've been trying to find some "different" historicals recently to keep me entertained. When this one came my way, I was very excited to have such a different hero and heroine presented to me. I loved the Native American elements shown against the struggles of the settlers. Grady was a yummy hero who did what had to be done.

Ms. Sivad did an excellent job setting up the historical setting, while giving me a solid mystery. A nice quick read with interesting characters and engaging plot. I'd defini

Julie and Grady an unlikely couple. The story of the making of a true love story. Can the mother of twin girls truly make the promise of a son come true. The trials of a couple destined to be together. Or are they? Enjoy

My favorite author does it again. Gem is a great story teller. You will be entertained by any of her stories or series. I have read all of them Amazon has made available and I have lived them all. You will not be disappointed if you read them too.
