The Price of Love

Brenda Jackson returns to the scene with another Steele this time the Phoenix clan also known as The Bad News Steele’s’. The Steele brothers were truly their father’s sons and their love for woman was obvious as well as their need to hold on to their bachelor cards unlike their cousins’ in North Carolina.

Brittany Thrasher was the umpteen of prim and proper so when she meets Galen Steele she is very disgusted with the way he presents himself and had no problem telling him as such. Brittan grew up in a situation that left her insecure with who she was so when she receives word from a woman in Phoenix stating that she may possible be able to bring closure to some questions in her life she finds herself on a journey to find and find the answers. Galen Steele had never forgot the chocolate beauty he had all but bullied out of her cab but when he sees her at a Phoenix auction he’s determined to find out more about her and get to her in his bed and out of his mind. After he learns information that he realizes is the key to getting what he wants he puts his plans into action. Brittany knew she had to win the auction on a vital piece of information but when she gets into a bidding war with a man, she realizes that she may not be able to achieve her goal. When a man she isn’t aware of snags it for an amount that is total over her range Brittany is determined to negotiate her way to collect her piece. When she realizes the man is Mr. Ill Manners from New York she is ready to walkway but when he gives her the proposal of a lifetime Brittany is determined to do a little soul searching and gaining the property but not before fate has a little fun between Galen and her.

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

NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR MONEY

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.
