Burned

BurnedRosie Miller had loved a man five years ago and felt her heart break when he had left. Now he is back and she is finding out that he wants her back.

Hunter Black never stopped wanting Rosie but their relationship needed space. After five years he will come back to find out if Rosie would take him back.

Burned is the second novella to this two book series Miller Sisters by Sarah Morgan. I really liked this book. It was sweet and steamy. I thought it was a good follow up to the first book which had first mentioned the man that Rosie had loved and who had broken her heart. As said this was a novella so it was pretty short but I felt that I got the important information, although at times it might have been a little rushed.

So Rosie was someone you wanted to hug, to tell her to let herself have that happy ending with Hunter. You wanted her to trust him again, to give him a second chance. I had a feeling that Hunter was not a bad guy for leaving. I knew that there had to be more to his side, and I was right. Hunter’s character was a man with an edge, a man who fought for what he wanted. You want to have someone like Hunter pursue you.

So I was getting annoyed, at least a little annoyed, with the book because I wanted to know more about Hunter. I wanted to know why he left Rosie five years ago. Well I get my answers, only it was pretty close to the end. The explanation let you get to know Hunter a lot better and you felt for him and his past.

I liked the ending of this book as what happened in the first book happened in the second book, only on a different holiday. The ending left me smiling.

Irish Rebels by Nora Roberts

The third and final chapter, Irish Rebels, to the series Irish Hearts was enchanting and entertaining as the other two.  “Irish Thoroughbred” and “Irish Rose”, the first two in the series sets the plot for the third one.

Irish Rebels brings us more into the future where the Grants are again the main topic but this time it is Keeley Grant the oldest daughter and Brian Donnelly, an Irish man.

“She was practically royalty-the daughter of a rich, renowned horse-breeding dynasty.  He was just a hardworking horse trainer.  But Brian Donnelly was in America now, where even he might aspire to possess the breathtaking Keeley Grant.  Her wealth and position didn’t deter Brian…for it was the innocence Keeley offered him that beguiled the wild Irish rebel and threatened to corral his restless heart.”

Brian Donnelly a man that wants no attachment, no troubles is about to get shaken up when he takes employment with the Grants on Royal Meadows.  He didn’t want to feel the attraction to her but the moment she walked in he knew he wanted her but couldn’t touch.  He thought insults would be good enough, made fun of her students.  Saying those privilege kids would never stick with this.  But he finds that he put his foot in his mouth.  Keeley helped unprivileged kids and rescued abused horses.

Keeley was goal oriented and didn’t want anything getting in her way.  But then Brian Donnelly came on to the scene and everything changed.  An attraction was there from the start but she didn’t know how to deal with it.  She remain cold until enough was enough.  Keeley decided to take the seducing in her own hands.  She wanted Brian and she was going to get him.

Brian was denying her at first but he couldn’t for long.  The two of them were able to find comfort in one another and Keeley knew she felt love in the arms of Brian but he wasn’t saying it.  Her goal now was to get Brian to come over to her side and admit he wants a life together.  But with a man afraid of attachment ever find a way to accept and feel that he belongs?

I enjoyed reading this book.  I liked how Robert’s was able to share on what happened with the previous books through this plot. She keeps the characters moving forward and to see how things have progressed.
