Publisher's Summary

When the Cavanaugh brothers return home for their father's funeral, they discover unexpected evidence of the old man's surprising double life - a son named Blue, who wants the Triple C Ranch as much as they do. The eldest son, Deacon, a wealthy businessman who couldn't wait to leave the ranch and move on with his life, is looking to use his powerful connections to stop Blue at any cost. He never expected the ranch's forewoman, Mackenzie Byrd, to get in his way. Mac knows Deacon means to destroy the ranch and therefore destroy her livelihood. But as the two battle for control, their attraction builds. Now Deacon is faced with the choice of a lifetime: Take down the Triple C to feed his need for revenge, or embrace the love of the one person who has broken down every barrier to his heart.

Deacon is a handsome, confident, sexy but bitter Billionaire hell bent on revenge and destruction so after his Father's funeral he enlists the help and co-operation of his two other successful brothers to put and end to a bitter chapter in their lives by destroying his Father's legacy... the Triple C Ranch. But he wasn't counting on Mac, the beautiful, strong and dedicated Foreman of his Father Ranch and, although they're fighting on opposite sides, their sexual chemistry, sizzling attraction, quick dialogue, jabs and dirty talk makes it a tense bitter-sweet fight as both are prepared to fight dirty.... despite their mutual lust.

As Laura Wright skilfully created and richly describes a tantalising world and blended a past tragic unresolved murder along with emotional tension, secrets, betrayal, conflicts, angst, passion, likeable complex secondary characters each with their own demons, mystery and revelations. All that and a fiery, hot and passionate romance which results in the lines between love/hate and revenge/forgiveness to slowly become blurred. It's told from various POVs which enriches the story and deliciously sets the outlines for future books.... and new clues means there's hopefully a killer to catch too.

Worth a credit? He started off as a cold-hearted bully but Deacon's character growth, revelations, quick wit and his passionate personality had me quickly falling for all his macho charms and that, coupled with the hot romance and all the sub plots and mystery makes this not only a definite creditworthy listen but also a good series to follow.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Really liked this one, looking forward to the next

Would you consider the audio edition of Branded to be better than the print version?

Since I didn't read the print version, I guess I can't really answer. However I use audio because I don't have time to sit down with the print, and I can listen while doing other things. That being said I really enjoyed the audio version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Branded?

I think answering this question in any detail would be a bit of a spoiler, so I will just say, I think I could actually feel Mac's trepidation of the intrusion during the pool scene.

Which character – as performed by Kaleo Griffith – was your favorite?

Kaleo Griffith did a fine job with the characters in my opinion, not sure I can pick a favorite, but the voices lent did add some character to the characters for me.

Any additional comments?

I love a bit of mystery with my romance, and I found this one intriguing. I am looking forward to the rest of this series. The only complaint I have (and it is just a small annoyance) is that the scene changes happened so quickly that I felt like they were spliced together.
