Let me start by saying the story was not about Felicia and john Henry Daniel's parents but how cuteeeeeeeeee was there story it's almost getting 2 stories for the price of one. Now Madelyn and Daniel loved there story great read. Don't hate me for saying this the sex could have been better but the story line and the plot is worth the read Loved it.

I love this book, it was a really good read. I loved Daniel and Madelyn's characters. I love the way Daniel took care of her while slowly falling in love, fighting it all the way. Another great addition to this series.

This was my first Francis Ray book. I fell in love with it and then had to go back to read about the Taggerts. I think she was the first African American romance author I ever read and got hooked. She is still one of my favorites. The intrigue of the protected baby sister of the Taggert brothers falling in love with their scandalous player friend. The consequences and the love that eventually follows gets you intrigued. I read it so much it fell apart.

Daniel, Daniel, Daniel!!!
I enjoyed this book very much. It is part of an interconnected family series. Daniel is an arrogant guy who turns out to be a softie where Madelyn is concerned. Some portions of the story were unbelievable but then again, this is a romance novel, not real life. Plus the guy on the cover is gorgeous!!

My first book in the Taggart/Falcon series. A pleasant surprise which has me curious about Matt and Kane story. Daniel a total alpha was not a jerk for the very young Madelyn. He was just enough but not overpowering. I found that I enjoyed the side story with his parents as well as the main story.

I definitely want to read Matt and Kane's story.

Good Feelings!

This was not only good writing but this was jus t a really good modern romance with an old-fashioned feel. The writer in her typical fashion gives us a feel good story that leaves you with a smile.
Initial thoughts:
1. Madelyn was too naive.
2. Daniel was in denial too long.
3. Daniel's parents (Felicia and John Henry) were adorable. They bumped this to 3 stars to be honest.

Fantastic reading love everything about this book
Unfortunately, Heart of the Falcon uses my least favorite Romance trope: Oops, I'm pregnant! I was excited to get to know Daniel Falcon more, and it sounded like it was going to be a sweet and steamy friend's little sister Romance. It just let me down though. Daniel and Madelyn run into each other when she's trying to escape the rain. There's an immediate chemistry between them, but Daniel has rules about hooking up with friends' family. But they can't keep their hands off of each other and one ...more
“So far she hadn’t seen one man she wanted all to herself.
Well, she had seen him. She just hadn’t met him.
Until a couple of years ago when she had seen a photograph of Daniel Falcon with her brother, Matt, she hadn’t known Daniel existed. Since then she hadn’t been able to forget him.”
p. 15

This was another romance from the NPR list of swoon-worthy books.( Once again, I can see why this contemporary romance made the grade. I enjoyed meeting Madelyn Tagg
