The New York Times bestselling author of Brash returns to the Triple C Ranch in River Black, Texas, for more cowboys, romance, and danger…

Ranch hand Blue Perez’s once simple life is spinning out of control. He’s discovered he has three half-brothers, and they’re not ready to accept his claim on the ranch. Also, Blue’s girlfriend may have betrayed him in the worst way possible. And after one evening of drowning his sorrows at the bar, there’s someone he can’t get out of his mind, a woman who says she’s carrying his child.

Following a night of breathtaking passion in the arms of the man she’s longed for all her life, waitress Emily Shiver is contemplating her next step. With everything that’s going on in Blue’s life, she doesn’t want to force him into fatherhood. Yet as hard hearted as he may seem, Blue can’t turn his back on her, particularly when she becomes the target of someone’s dark obsession....


I’ve loved Blue from the very beginning and I knew Ms. Wright would do his story justice. Not only was it steamy with beautiful sensual moments, it was emotional, touching, and downright heartwarming.

For me, this series just kept getting better and better, starting off a little slow but then ended with a bang with a great conclusion to an engrossing storyline. I slowly became emotionally invested in every single character, but Blue Perez hit me the hardest. His story was embedded in the series from the very beginning and led us to his greatly deserved happily ever after in BONDED.

But let’s not forget the beloved little sister, Cass Cavanaugh. The suspense and mystery behind this whole series rests on her story. In BONDED, the mystery comes to a close and the person who’s responsible for her death is revealed. All your questions are answered. All of your concerns are addressed. All of your theories will be confirmed or denied. This is the book we have been waiting for, the missing piece of this complex puzzle.

It felt like a dream. One night of passion changes the course of two people’s lives. One is holding one hell of a grudge. The other is as independent as they come. One is surrounded by darkness, and the other wants nothing more than to surround the other with light. They crave each other, yearn for one another, but that might not be enough. An obsession turns deadly in the fiery conclusion of The Cavanaugh Brother’s series.

I really liked Blue and Emily together. They complemented each other well and their chemistry and passion was sexy and believable. Blue’s struggle tugged at my heartstrings quite a bit. I could feel the tension and the angst when he was around his family. I felt the passion and love when he was around Emily. His acceptance of who he was and who his family was at the end was like a breath of fresh air. A true romance that led us on a beautiful and suspenseful journey comes to an end on the pages but not in our hearts.

About Laura Wright

Writing is my Obsession

Unlike many of my peers in the writing world, I wasn’t a writer or a reader until I left high school. During my youth I was into theater, song and dance, commercials and boys. I loved romance surely, but I had never read a romance novel until my late teens. With that said, I remember the day I did like it was a moment ago – my aunt gave me the Jude Deveraux novel, Knight in Shining Armor and I couldn’t put it down until the very last word. Then I went straight to the library and got another – then another until I’d read everything she’d ever written. After that, it was McNaught, Howard, Schone, Kleypas, and the Silhouette line, Desire. I instantly loved those emotional, sexy reads, so much so that I began to carve out ideas for my own stories, themes that were unique to me and moved me. In 1997 I enrolled in UCLA extension writing classes, met my mentor and critique partners and since have never stopped writing. I was committed then and I still am now; the need to tell my own romantic stories a full on obsession. My first manuscript was rejected, and though the second one was as well the editor who’d rejected it wanted to see something else from me. I had something (note to authors; always keep working, even after you’ve sent in a proposal) and sent it right away. The day I got the call telling me Desire wanted to buy Cinderella and the Playboy was the best day of my life. That is until I married my husband, and had my two beautiful children. But I must say, writing is much like motherhood – tough, grueling, surprising, delicious and for me, a dream come true.

If you’re interested…

I was born and raised in Minnesota. It’s where my love of all things green, wet and grown in the ground comes from. As you read above, before writing I was an actor, singer and dancer, specifically a BALLROOM dancer – an instructor and competitor as well. That work took me to many places like New York, Ohio and Wisconsin. I live in Los Angeles now, but I’m always thinking about greener pastures – literally.
