After reading "Irresistible Forces" by Brenda Jackson it was very difficult to pick up another one of her novels. I found "Claimed for Destiny" just boring and badly written, but other bibliophiles, lovers of romance novels, and fans of Jackson's writing encouraged me to give her a second chance, so I did and I'm glad I got the opportunity to read "Claimed for Destiny." Jackson's two stories, "Jared's Counterfeit Fiancee" and "The Chase Is On" are quite similar - two Westmoreland men who have ev ...more

I have read both books and really loved them. You cant go wrong with a Westmoreland brother, sister or cousin. If you are not familiar with the series i suggest to try and read in order, they can stand alone but it always refer to a family member or a teaser whose story is next.
I like them both but i really loved Jared's story

"Jared's Counterfeit Fiancee"

This story was definitely a "green light" It's so funny how Dana and Jared pretended to be in love and actually fell in it. The fact that the two initially did this play act to make a Westmoreland mother happy, was very sweet to me! Great Job Brenda!!

"The Chase is On"

The soul food cooker, Chase found love with Jessica, the confectioner. This story was definitely dinner and dessert all at the same time. Hmmm.. quite tasty. I enjoyed reading the conclusion to the first

Both of these are short (<140 pages) and well-writtten reads. My only criticism is that the womanizing hero who never plans to fall in love and falls hard for the innocent heroine is so overdone by Brenda Jackson (and to be fair - other authors). Enjoyable, minor conflict, but no suspense getting to the HEA. Great on a rainy day or airplane.

These books are really hot. Read them.

Both books well worth the read I enjoyed Chase's story but Jared's proposal was crazy with how the mother forced his hand. I loved it.
This is just a great family overall, I haven't read one that I didn't like....All were great stories/great characters.
Kyra Gates
These were both great guys. Ms. Jackson has done it again. I'm going to hate when I'm done reading the Westmorelands
I loved Jared....just wish there was more of him in the real world!!!
