Great start to the series, after the prequel of Beauty and the Best Man set things up. JD Lassiter is dead and the reading of his will has shaken up the entire family. Sage isn't expecting anything, having been estranged from his father for awhile, but he's furious when his sister isn't left what everyone expected her to get. To make matters worse, his father's nurse is given three million dollars. Sage is sure that Colleen manipulated his father somehow and is determined to find out the truth, ...more

The Black Sheep's Inheritance is a very nice read, too nice . There is nothing wrong with a nice read, but I felt that there wasn't enough conflict, nor, do I feel Sage was much of a black sheep.

Sage was, rich, down to earth and sexy and I enjoyed the connection he had with Colleen. When I first started reading, I got excited and I like their relationship and the way it

THE BLACK SHEEP'S INHERITANCE is the second book the DYNASTIES: The Lassiters following, BEAUTY AND THE BEST MAN. I would recommend you read the first book before you start this one. It's not a must but I feel it will add to the experience. With that said, this is a well written story. I enjoyed watching events unfold for both Sage and Colleen. There is an event that starts in the first story, Beauty and the Best Man that continues to unfold within THE BLACK SHEEP'S INHERITANCE that while I unde ...more

The story started when the matriarch of the family has passed on and his will has shaken up the entire family. The most unexpected one was that his nurse was bestowed with a sum of three millions. Colleen was surprised with the generosity of her boss but his son, Sage is not happy about it. He is convinced that Colleen has manipulated his father and he make it his point to find the truth. With the money, Colleen wants to send her mum and aunt for a cruise and to fulfil her dream of becoming nurs ...more

A great story from a powerhouse like Maureen Child, this has it all, a slightly brooding grumpy Alpha male, a semi naïve sweet heroine who has a secret backbone, then throw in a small misunderstanding and it’s an entertaining read.

This definitely hooked me into the Lassiter world, and I look forward to reading more of this family and their stories. I really liked Sage, he’s grumpy and a bit misguided but when he falls, he falls hard. Colleen is a bit naïve because she’s never lived in the mount

The Black Sheep’s Inheritance was a nice, quick read. I liked both of the main characters. Colleen was a very kind and caring person; and, while Sage was a little rough around the edges, he had a good heart and was loyal to his siblings.

There really didn’t seem to be a lot of turmoil in Sage and Colleen’s relationship until close to the end. Although Sage was suspicious of Colleen in the beginning, it wasn’t a very deep suspicion. He really and truly knew that she was in fact a good person. The

The first book in the Dynasties: The Lassiters series definitely doesn't disappoint. Although there were a few things I thought could have been better, I really enjoyed this story & finished it quickly. I don't think I've ever read anything by Maureen Child that I didn't like. She knows how to tell a good story & this one is no exception! It exposed you to the family yet left you wanting, which is the perfect way to start a series. I wish that I had realized that Beauty &

This was an ok romance. Rich guy thinks nurse swindled money from his dying father. Rich overbearing man learns to love and stop hiding away alone. Sweet innocent nurse gets caught up in the whirlwind that is him. It's a story line I've read before. But this was a quick and easy read. Still delightful, but not as sexy as I would have preferred coming from Harlequin

D2294 Apr14 Dynasties: the Lassiters JD Lassiter has earned his own way and now, after the death of his adoptive father, he is out to find out how his nurse talked him into leaving her 3 million in his will. Colleen Falkner has to have some how tricked him!
The hero kept telling the heroine all the things she couldn't do because she was a city person (read: woman) so I was a little worried that this was going to turn into a misogynistic mess but it turned around at the end.

The Black Sheep's Inheritance is a quick read and neither amazing nor terrible. I could easily recommend it for someone who's looking for something quick and easy; the characters are likable enough, but again, it lacked a certain spark that would have taken it to the next level of romance.

The Lassiter's are the new family to have on your reading shelf. The family dynasty is full on with drama and intrigue, and building on to the family legacy left to them by the patriarch JD. With the love this dynasty will conquer all.

I read the prequel. I thought this one was a bit boring. I am glad I read it if only for the backstory for other books in the series.
