Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of Black Dagger Brotherhood delivers the first novel in an enthralling new series set amid the shifting dynamics of a Southern family defined by wealth and privilege - and compromised by secrets, deceit, and scandal....
For generations the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege - as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet.
For Lizzie King, Easterly's head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted - and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane's beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets.
As family tensions - professional and intimately private - ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.
From the Hardcover edition.

Yes it's Dallas with Bourbon but I loved it

No it's not the Brothers or even the Fallen Angels but I still loved this new JR Ward series. Yes, it was a little cheesy like Dallas - but hey, I don't need real life heartache and drama. I like over-the-top fantasy - it is FICTION after all. If I wanted reality I would write my own book. I love Wards writing style and this one did not disappoint. If she keeps writing 'em I'll keep buying.

Guess it's just not for me.....

Dallas Anyone???I was so excited waiting for this release but was disappointed by the narration and the story in general. It was like reading an episode of Dallas. The story was mostly about a very rich southern family and all the ways they are messed up. The characters were all cold and all about themselves, I didn't connect with any of them. There really wasn't much in the way of romance either, yes there was a love story side line but it was very unemotional and not hot at all. The narration was very monotone and his voice wasn't meant for female narration. Maybe I just had to high of expectations because it was JR Ward but needless to say I won't be continuing with this series.
