Places In My Heart is the story of Morgan Gray and Omar Drummond. We witness their connections, coming together and getting in and out of their way. Business keeps them from openly acting of their intense attractions and we get to see if they can get past their hindrances in tack.

A Madaris Bride for Christmas by Brenda Jackson is an intriguing read from the onset.  It captures ones attention and has you wondering what’s next.  Great Grandma Laverne has been “match making” with her grandchildren and now great grandchildren.  At around 95 years of age, she is determined to see a wedding for each of them and she’s getting it done.  Well some of her lineage, won’t accept that and are determined to best her by picking and marrying their choice.  Well Lee Madaris is one of them and he sets out to do just that after a woman he sees from his balcony catches his eye and full attention.  Lee is the co-owner of an illustrious hotel in Las Vegas, which is the second one for him and his partner. His goal is to have the grandest hotel on the strip and he is doing just that.

Carly Briggs jumps at a chance to work as a Chef at one of the grandest hotels on the Las Vegas strip, especially after believing she witnessed a crime in Miami. For a treat to herself, she books a room at the hotel for one night and Lee happens to see her from a distance, then up close and personal. Later, he gets an idea and sets out to put it in motion if his hotel’s gorgeous new chef will agree to a marriage of convenience.  Will she agree….hmmmm? All this is further complicated when per Brenda Jackson “the danger that made Carly flee Miami is about to land at their door.” So Carly and Lee must decide who to trust, when to let go—and whether a love they never anticipated is strong enough to pass the ultimate test.”

Mrs. Jackson penned a tale that allows us to witness the blooming of a potential romance and has us captivated with the suspense and thrill as titillating details unfold.  This novel was a great 5 stars read that I thoroughly enjoyed. CONGRATULATIONS BRENDA JACKSON ON YOUR 100th Novel!!

an intriguing continuation of suspense and mystery that’s accented with love, romance and family….

A Man’s Promise by Brenda Jackson is an intriguing continuation of suspense and mystery that’s accented with love, romance and family.  Mrs. Jackson penned a novel that keeps us guessing and teetering on the edge of our seats.  I was drawn completely into this continuum of the Granger Brothers Series. 

Caden Granger is a highly sought after and successful sax player that leads a band.  He left home and dedicated himself to his music after his mother being murdered; his father was convicted of killing her and after losing the love of his life.  He returns home at the request of his grandfather and stays to fulfill a promise after his death. 

Shiloh Timmons returns home after to open a wine boutique, to a severed relationship with her mother and attempted to inform her former love of what ended their relationship but he would not hear her.

We experience the journey of what their returns home brings about as well as the continued quest to find out who killed Sylvia Granger.

I give this novel 5 stars, July 8, 2014


a great read that was packed with emotional moments….

The Real Thing by Brenda Jackson was a great read that was packed with emotional moments. It raises an eyebrow, makes you want to punch someone, saddens you and elates you….all in the same breath. The tale of the journey of Trinity Matthews and Adrian Westmoreland is definitely all the aforementioned and more. As we witness the blossoming of their love, we also witness abuse of power and affluence. Once again, I say, well done Mrs. Jackson.

I give this story 5 stars!!  April 3, 2014


great entertainment and much involvement as it keeps you totally engrossed and engaged….

This was an AWESOME read.  Beverly Jenkins filled Midnight with Romance, History, Suspense and Drama.  This novel was great entertainment and much involvement as it keeps you totally engrossed and engaged.  Midnight was written during the period around the mid of the 1800’s and chucked full of facts and events of the era.  Just an AWESOME experience!!

 I give this novel 5+ stars, March 10, 2014
