Clearly drawn characters in Deacon and Mackenzie are the highlights of Wright’s latest. Both are strong and passionate, and the chemistry between them sizzles. Wright tells a story filled with heart, genuine characters and natural dialogue. Add good pacing and a well-developed plot, and Wright’s latest is one that will not disappoint.

Businessman Deacon Cavanaugh wants to destroy his family’s Triple C Ranch, and now that his father is dead, he aims to do just that. However, ranch forewoman Mackenzie Byrd wants the opposite — the ranch is home to her. As the two reconnect again after many years, she finds that Deacon is not as ruthless as she thought. Deacon’s desire for Mackenzie is intense and when he starts to care for her, his guard comes down. Yet Deacon is still bent on revenge and Mackenzie still disagrees. Will their love overcome his desire for revenge? (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Jun., 384 pp., $7.99)

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Branded

Submitted by MichelleLOlson on May 18, 2014 - 9:34am.

*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

Branded, the first book in Laura Wright’s new series, The Cavanaugh Brothers, is a keeper. The emotions are intense, the sexual steam is sizzling hot, and the storyline never lags.

Branded features the eldest of the Cavanaugh brothers, Deacon. And the one thing that this urban businessman wants is to destroy the ranch that he grew up on. The land and everything on it are reminders of an unsolved murder, betrayals, and old family secrets.

Mackenzie is the foreman of the Triple C Ranch, and she will do what ever she can to stop the destruction of the place that she loves and calls home.

Deacon and Mac clash something fierce, but the attraction that they both feel can’t be denied.

The dialog in Branded is smart and realistic. The sex will have you fanning yourself.

I can’t wait to read the next in this series. The remaining Cavanaugh brothers, Cole, James and Blue, are men that I’ve just got to know better.
