This was a Great Book w/a twist... I love the fact that Tina used some of my favorite characters from the other series she has written. "The Sapphire Club Series" by Brita Addams... I loved the Ending so much!!! If you have not read any of her books your are missing out!!!!!!!! They are ALL AMAZING and I LOVE THEM ALL...

Way to go Tina & Brita.

I absolutely loved this story. It paints a rich and vivid picture of the Dog Soldiers and their way of life, fitting this history into the story in such a way you learn a lot about the Dog Soldiers without being lectured. I really liked how Diablo doesn't try to turn the Cheyenne into 'noble savages' as sometimes happens in romance, but how she writes them with both their good and bad sides, making them more real and recognizable this way.

The romance and action in this story are well balanced and fit together perfectly, weaving a bittersweet love story that's not just about Cesca and Meko, but about a whole way of life. The one thing I could say against this story is that I would have loved to read more from Meko/Ethan's point of view as he's a very cool and intriguing character and I'd have loved to read a bit more about what makes him tick. I really hope Diablo decides to continue this series as I for one will surely read any sequel.

Terrific love story! Great idea for a meeting between the two men and so sweet how close they get in such a short time. Intriguing heroes and very nice plot. I started this story and just couldn't stop; the length is good for a continuous read. Hot sex scenes too! Looking forward to more in this relationship!

Title: The Brat

Saige's Stage Author: November 30, 2010

At his estranged mother’s funeral, Ben Kourvaris sees Gina Williams and wants to know what her attachment is to the woman who sent him away at age ten. Gina tries her best to keep her distance from Ben, but when he buys the publishing company of her books it makes it difficult to steer clear of him. Gina has a past that could destroy her career, the more he learns about the elusive author the more he realizes he wants to have her as his wife, the only problem is Gina does not want to be married, ever.

A heart wrenching story about a woman who has gained strength by overcoming the horrors of her childhood and vowed never to allow another to control her. When Ben explains the arrangements of a one year marriage in order to gain control of his ailing father’s company, something about the loyalty he shows pierces through Gina’s damaged heart. As they begin to open up to one another, Gina realizes that the next part of her journey is learning to trust again.

The Brat is a written with such delicacy to Gina’s past that it envelops you into this engaging story. I thought it was memorable and a story that makes you think about it again and again once it is finished. A real treasure.

This novel is a great romance taking place in the country I long to visit, Ireland.  Both the heroine and the hero are lovable and this book provides an intense want of the page turn.  I didn't want to put it down.  It is an easy book to follow and the events allow you to take yourself out of the world you live in and immerse yourself in the world that belongs to Alexa Malone and Liam O'Shea.  I would recommend this book to anyone who believes in love and romance.  Kelly Yeakle is a great author!
