Brenda continues the Forged Steele Series with a hot one right of Phoenix. I get the feeling Drew’s boys are going to fall hard but wont’ go down without a fight.

Quade’s Babies by Brenda Jackson



Quade’s Babies

Brenda Jackson

Rating 2

Disappointment is not even a good enough description…

Brenda Jackson writes the fourteenth book of the Westmoreland’s’ series. While I was a diehard fan in the beginning when she introduced Delany and her brothers Mrs. Jackson has slowly but surely disappointed me with the cousins.

In this particular book we remember when Quade was in Montana with his family and he saw the picture of the enchanted beauty Cheyenne who he had a one night affair with in Egypt while on business and he realizes she’s pregnant rather she’s probably due any day now. Well what we later learn is that Cheyenne is none other than Cheyenne Steele of the Steele family from the Kimami Steele’s. Remember her cousins Chance, Donovan, Morgan, and Sebastian the male cousins and then there is Taylor and Vanessa her sisters’. Yeah that crew.

Quade Westmoreland was surprise when he finds out he’s a father but not just a father but a father to the second set of Westmoreland triplets but what he wasn’t prepared for was their mother and her resistance to wanting to do what he considered right in his eyes for her and the babies. Cheyenne Steele had grown up being told what to do and how to do it so when she finds herself pregnant with her mystery man’s triplets she decides that she’s going to do things her way with her babies and no one can say anything to change her mind. Well almost no one.

Cheyenne thought she would never see Quade again but when he shows up inquiring about her babies she has no choice but to tell him what he wants to know but she never expected the situation to become a lifetime situation.

Brenda Jackson has continue to give us great romantic stories however I believe it has gotten to the point that Mrs. Jackson has really forgotten that writing is about the quality of the book instead of the quantity of the book. I really hope to see Mrs. Jackson return with a book that can hold to the standards of quality.






SEX AND THE SINGLE BRADDOCK is a midtempo look into how far one will go to find answers to a love one’s death.

Shronda Braddock knew her father’s death was no accident, as everyone believed however finding the answers were proven more difficult than her and her brothers like. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, she takes a job at the company that seems to be the missing link to the puzzle but not before, she finds herself in the company of her boss. Conner Stewart is known to be one of the playboy’s of Houston elite. When he meets the new compliance attorney for his father’s company he finds himself enthrall to get to know her better. Knowing his every move is under a microscope he is careful of what he does but not before falling for the sexy attorney. When Connor finds out the truth about Shornda he is upset but not before realizing his feelings for her. With the vow to help Shornda and Connor finds themselves in the mix of an interracial affair.

Robyn Amos turns up the heat with an unexpected twist however, the book started slowly but it did gain momentum to only slow in the middle while finishing out with a surprise. Robyn is defiantly an author to continue to read.

Cole’s Red Hot Pursuit by Brenda Jackson

June 2008

Cole Red Hot Pursuit

Brenda Jackson

Silhouette Desire

ISBN: 978-1-4268-1797-7

Rating: 2.5

Unknown Passion

Cole Red Hot Pursuit is a passionate and erotic full novel with a family feel as well as two very passionate characters.

Cole Westermoreland was a man who was nothing but a confirmed bachelor his passion was pleasing women and nothing more. When he finds himself face to face with Patricia Foreman after she saves his life after a snowstorm causes him to have an accident he knows he wants Patricia in the most intimate way ever. Patricia Foreman has a thing against lawman due to her late husband but she had never met a man who shows more persistence then Cole. She finds herself intrigued with the way he causes his body to respond to hers but she also finds herself falling in love when she does not want to.

Brenda Jackson writes strong passionate pieces however, the story line feels like a repeat from her other novels as well as it was rushed. In this novel, Cole pushes and pushes until he finally gets Patricia to do what he wants while I enjoy a strong determined man it is as if he comes off as controlling which is not a passionate or romantic feature. Many readers are use to reading romance novels and thinking of that perfect man while looks, wealth, and sexuality that are what Cole brings to the table it just seems his character simply lacked a part of that romance formula.
