Breaking Bailey’s Rules (The Westmorleands #3)
November 3, 2015
Rule number one for Bailey Westmoreland: Never fall for a man who would take her away from her tight-knit family’s Colorado home. So why is she following rancher Walker Rafferty all the way to Alaska? Bailey tells herself she owes the sexy loner an apology, and once she gets there, it’s only right to stay and help him when he’s injured…isn’t it? Before long, Bailey realizes home might be where you make it—if Walker is ready to take all she has to offer.
I loved this book!!! Bailey has been one of my favorite Westmoreland’s since her character was introduced. Why? Because she reminds me a lot of myself. She’s smart, sassy and to the point, but she loves her family more than anything. As you read through the Denver Westmoreland’ stories you get glimpses of Bailey and her tough no-nonsense personality which makes you wonder what man has the ability to not only pique her interest but capture her heart.
Brenda did good when she choose Walker for Bailey, he’s silent but firm, protective but gentle and lets not forget sexy. Poor Bailey fell head in before she could talk herself out of it and Walker was different. Although the scenario used to get them together has been done before by other authors and Ms. Jackson herself, it felt unique to this book. I strong suggest reading this book and if you haven’t read from the beginning of the series to get to know Bailey.
And for those waiting on Bane’s story ( Meeeee!!!) Make sure you read the epilogue (wink)

One Winter’s Night
November 27, 2012
A brand-new Westmoreland novel from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Jackson.
Riley Westmoreland never mixes business with pleasure—until he meets his company’s gorgeous new party planner. But when he gets Alpha Blake into bed, he realizes one night will never be enough. That’s when her past threatens to end their affair. So Riley does what any Westmoreland male would do…he vows to win her heart—for good.
My Take (Little to no spoilers)
If any of the Westmoreland Men could be my dream man it would be Riley. He is sweet, thoughtful, caring, smart and Outright SEXY! The minute Riley offered to pick Alpha for the meeting because her car broke down I was a goner. And then he
picked her up put on the Westmoreland charm, what woman can resist?
Alpha is the Florida girl (yay) who leaves home after a broken relationship and of all places moves to Denver. Now seeing as how I’m a florida girl through and through I just don’t see me ever doing that lol. The former veterinarian gives up her career to pursue her passion as a party planner. Riley is the company’s 40th Anniversary chair and they hire Alphas company to plan the affair and from the moment they meet I felt good about the relationship. It starts as a business relationship but there is so much attraction that Riley can’t stand it and proposes to Alpha that they have a six-week affair because that’s all he needs to get her out his system *eye roll*.
What happens through out the rest of the story is a courtship that would make any woman sigh and secret to unexpected it left me in shock. I never expected Brenda to go there and I LOVED the twist. All in All its a great read that any romance fan would love. And if you havent read any of Brenda Jackson’s Westmoreland series (what are your waiting for) I suggest you give those a try as well.
