Image of Branded: The Cavanaugh Brothers

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)
