There are three lessons that my Grandmother taught me. A person is never too old to stop learning. It's not enough to crave or receive love, you must give love in return and lead by example. She was a wise woman, who was not afraid to practice what she preached. Until the day she died, she led by example in all she did. Including owning up to her mistakes. I still miss her, but carry all she taught me within my heart. The Westerly clan cou ...more
I really enjoyed this audiobook. This was my first experience with Ruth Cardello's writing and I am very happy that it turned out to be a positive one. I actually won a copy of the second book from the series but decided that I wanted to start at the beginning which turned out to be a very good choice. I ended up listening to the book in only a couple of days because I was having such a good time with it.
I went into this book expecti ...more

Thank you, Montlake Romance!
This is my first book by this author, and I can see why she's been successfully publishing contemporary romance books for a while. When the romance finally kicked in, the chemistry between Brett and Alisha made this a hot and enjoyable read.
In the Heir is the first title in the author’s new series about a rich family, the Westerly, and the women (and I’m guessing men, too, since there are also sisters involved) who fall ...more

Ruth Cardello is a new author to me and I'm sure I'll read more of her books. I enjoy the twists in her plot, her writing is great, and she used a strong woman to tame her alpha male. Very well ...more
Their back!! It worked before so why not try again? Premise was good but delivery and characters could have been better.
Everyone expect the main two characters (and Delinda) were horrible and selfish people. So much, that I really don't care for them to find their HEAs.
And the story is VERY wordy!!!! I'm a huge fan of dialogue and found it lacking here. Strip all the "in thought" moments, make Spenc ...more
I could not have been more wrong! The entirety of my expectations played out within the first 30ish pages to literally prove me wrong.
This book was about so much more. It was about love and loss. It was about fitting in and the family you are born with ...more
