I can't tell you how glad I am that Jennifer Bernard has continued to write. So many of my favorite authors aren't. So to keep writing and publishing them yourself is a lot of work and I really appreciate it.

The Renegade is third book in her new Rockwell Legacy series. I've been enjoying this series. The character haven been so much fun to read about. I love books that revolve around big families. I know with my

If you have been reading The Rockwell Legacy stories, The Renegade is the latest. This time, it is about Isabelle Rockwell, twin sister to Jake (we met him in previous books), a trauma surgeon working with Doctors Without Borders. She’s come home to Rocky Peak Lodge to help her family bring the lodge back to life. (No worries, it is a standalone story however it is much more enjoyable following the antics of this family.)

I won’t get into detail about the story but it starts with a bang, at

This series continues to get better and better! Out of the gates I was smitten with Isabelle's snarky quirks and I fell instantly in love with Lyle's vulnerable charm. The entire Rockwell family is one I want to be a part of, especially when it comes to Christmas, please send me to Rocky Peak Lodge.

Lyle Guero, the cold hearted billionaire, or is he? To Isabelle Rockwell he's just a sweet, sexy man that she met in an airport in Rome. A fleeting moment that should have been just that. Now, Lyle is

Isabelle Rockwell has dedicated her life to being the best. It didn't matter if it were skiing, becoming a surgeon, or winning a snowball fight. She excelled. She volunteered with Doctors Without Borders because she enjoyed helping others, but also because she wanted to experience life. She vowed to do what her mother didn't do, live life with no strings attached. Until an unexpected layover in Rome...

Lyle Guero became the man he was due to sheer determination and hard work. Having been moved

This was my first book by Jennifer, I've read it as a standalone without reading any of the other books in the series, and to be honest I really felt I was missing out on a lot of the plot points, the family connections and history, etc., so while it can be read as a standalone I would advise reading the others in this series first - saying that when I did get into the story I did enjoy it!!

The Renegade is the 3rd book in the Rockwell Legacy series, I should have started with book 1 but I dived straight into Isabelle and Lyle’s story and couldn’t put it down. While it is part of a series, I was able to read as a standalone.

Lyle is a billionaire, scratch that he is no longer one because someone he though of as the only family he had is wagering a war to take everything he has built. Being told to lay low he decides to spend time at a ski resort one which he has invested in, except

A homecoming, a bit of mystery, and the last man she ever expected to see again! With the next book in The Rockwell Legacy, we see the lodge renovation making progress, get updates on the two couples we’ve loved in previous books and begin Isabelle’s journey to love. I enjoy this family and series very much overall, but found this particular book to be lackluster. Her back story wasn’t built up nearly as well as her brother’s had been in their earlier stories, and the connection between she and ...more

Isabella Rockwell, trauma surgeon, is back for the holidays. It’s the first time in years that all the brothers and sister are together again. Though to her surprise there are some extra new folk around as well. Including that hot billionaire she met in Rome. Queue the fireworks!

That dynamic in the Rockwell family is so on point. From the grumpy dad, to the teasing between the siblings, and all the love they have for each other. Two of the brothers now have significant others who fit in

Christmastime with the Rockwells means NEVER a dull moment! Between the games, the picking of the tree (and all the craziness that comes with it!), the search for the truth with Amanda Rockwell, the baby of the friend drama, and then (of course!) the potential romance of Lyle and Isabelle…this was an action packed book! The Author, Jennifer Bernard, writes so amazing and has such great flow to her storylines…and this was certainly no exception!

Isabelle returns home with the rest of the Rockwellls for the much needed renovations. What she doesn't expect is Lyle Guero billionaire and one night stand, to be here footing the bill.
I loved Isabelle! She has the perfect combination of snark, humor and fierceness. Her job as a doctor in war torn countries has made her demanding, well, that and her father, Max. Her life after her mother's accident was never the same. As the oldest daughter, she felt it was her duty to be everything for the

I was a bit surprised that it started AFTER the meeting that was mentioned in the comments, but that was actually quite good. We got glimpses and memories of their time together in Rome and at the same time we saw how Izzy and Lyle struggled to overcome the feelings they had after

This series just keeps getting better and better.

The Renegade is the third in Jennifer Bernard's Rockwell Legacy series, about the Rockwell siblings, who've grown up at a gorgeous mountain lodge founded by their great grandfather in Rocky Peak. They've had a somewhat tumultuous relationship with their father after their mother died in a tragic accident, but now that he's getting older, some health concerns have mellowed him somewhat, and they have returned to the Rocky Peak Lodge to celebrate

Jennifer Bernard takes us back to Rocky Peak Lodge and the Rockwell Clan in The Renegade, which is the third book in this series. I love this family, and wish I could head to Rocky Peak just to hang out with them. Bernard has created a family and characters that you can’t help but love. Isabelle and Lyle are two strong people who fit together perfectly. They understand each other and what the other needs. Isabelle cares for Lyle the person, not the billionaire, and watching their relationship ...more

Each book in this series just keeps building on the awesomeness of it all!! I absolutely love Isabelle and Lyle as a couple but I just love them as people too!!! I find them to be complex but also really down to earth characters. Isabelle is caring and fun but she can be so sassy too. Lyle is so much more than his nickname of "Lyle the Pile" lol, he is quite charming and kind and not at all cold and calculating like people think because he is a billionaire.

And read this book! The third in the Rockwell Series, it is as sizzling as the first two books. The bantering siblings, the camaraderie and love between them, and a tantalizingly good good plot all hooking you from chapter one to the last. Isabelle and Lyle’s story is delish… They are both at crossroads; Isabelle drawn to her childhood home by a dream of her mother and Lyle with the possibility of being de-billionaired.

How can you not love this series? The Rockwell family has had some recent mystery in their lives and it is spread through out each of these books.

It was fun to get into the mind of Izzy Rockwell. I can't say this was my favorite of the series, but it helped fill in some more info into the Rockwell family and what happened to their mother.

Izzy and Lyle were made for each other. It was an enjoyable read. I did really enjoy the Rockwell family Christmas traditions.

I LOVE this series!

First, the romance. Isabelle and Lyle are steamy, romantic fun! They get each other, compliment each other, fulfil each other.

Second, the Rockwell siblings. Christmas with the Rockwells is a like a contact sport. Bring a helmet and wait for the action. These siblings are pure fun (plus a large dose of competition and healthy dose of love).

Last, the mystery. This is the third book in the series and the siblings have been looking into their mother's car accident (this is a

After a steamy encounter in Italy, Lyle leaves Isabelle without even a note. Months later, when Lyle needs to lay low due to trouble with his business, while staying at Rocky Peak Lodge, his new angel investment. Isabelle, who’s been having reoccurring dreams about her mother, feels she needs to come home and search for her mother’s diaries. And there the two meet again and the sparks fly.

This book reminded me why I used to grab Jennifer Bernard's books off the store

The billionaire & the doctor from Doctors Without Borders. Some would say the selfish vs the selfless. They would be wrong! Lyle is not your typical billionaire. He isn’t cold & calculating but rather warm & down to earth. Isabella is smart, sexy & witty. I love that, instead of falling at Lyle’s feet & worshipping him & his money, she’s making him work. Her sarcasm & wit really made this story for me. Each of these books can easily be read as a stand-alone since they ...more
