Book Description

14 Nov 2013 Arabesque
One by one, Madaris men have surrendered to the matchmaking schemes of Felicia Laverne Madaris, matriarch of the family. But Lee isn't letting anyone control his destiny: he'll bring a bride of his own choosing to the family holiday gathering - if his hotel's gorgeous new chef, Carly, will agree to a marriage of convenience. Lee's tempting offer is hard to resist. And soon, desire is clouding their no-strings arrangement. Carly fled to Miami after witnessing a crime that made her a mob target. Now danger is about to land at their door - will their love pass the ultimate test?

As usual, Mrs. Jackson at her finest. I couldn't put it down, good to see the previous characters play a part as always, so easily entwined.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Madaris Man for Christmas – Joy to the Woman Who Receives it!!!! 30 Oct 2013
By Love2Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a Brenda Jackson classic at it's best, it has all the great elements of a good story - passion, romance, suspense, drama, family issues and great secondary characters. Lee Madaris is the epitome on a gentleman. He has the ability to spark fire to the flame just by entering into your presence. He was such an intriguing man in this story. He wrote the book on "courting" - WOW - he has the power to make you loose your mind with all the wonderful and special things he does to let you know that you are his only desire. He chose Carly and he let her know that she was the passionate woman that he desires for now and forever. Yes, it was lust at first site with these two but it was the passion they felt for one another that kept them intriguing through out the story. This is wonderful suspense love story that will keep you turning the pages until the last word is read. You will fall in love with the main characters. This is Mrs. Jackson 100th book and it is a very good one.

Carly wanted someone to love her but was willing to except passion in its place - at least that's what she thought. Being with Lee Madaris as a playmate will definitely make you get passion and love confused. While these two characters try to figure out one another and see if passion is enough, they discover that they really like each and don't mind figuring the rest out as it comes. Since this is a Madaris story you know it's not as simple as boy meets girl and fall in love - oh no, it had suspense that could only be solved by the Madaris' and their friends - and it didn't disappoint either.

If you know anything about a Brenda Jackson Madaris story you know it's going to have drama with twist and turns that involve handsome men coming to the rescue. It was no different in this one. I love the way Mrs. Jackson brought back all of the family members with various updates in their lives. A Madaris story wouldn't be the same without Mama Laverne with her match making schemes - well watch out - she's back.

I really enjoyed this story!!!!! This is Mrs. Jackson 100th book and she still has it to make you fall in love with her characters and her writing style. If you like romance stories that captures your heart and hold it, then this is the book for you. I am really looking forward to reading more of them. Very Entertaining Story!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Madaris Masterpiece 29 Oct 2013
By Divas_Lioness - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This has turned out to be one of my favorite Madaris series books, coming in behind the Midnight Hour. Brenda Jackson continues to amaze me with her excellent writing style. All I can say is Mama Laverne strikes again. Lee thought he was putting one over on the Madaris matriarch and bless his heart for that. This story between Lee and Carly is wonderful. Lee most definitely lives up to the Madaris name with his fierce protectiveness, overwhelming passion and unconditional love for his woman. It was great that she tied in other Madaris and Madaris friends' books as well as a Westmoreland book into this one. You get a look into how some of those characters are going about their lives. This is definitely a 5 star read and I look forward to reading more in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!!!! 29 Oct 2013
By Theroda S. Gaillard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a huge Brenda Jackson fan. I started reading her books many years ago. The first book I read was "Whispered Promises". That book was about Dexter and Caitlin Madaris. Needless to say I fell in love with the Madaris family and I have been hooked ever since. This 100th book for Mrs. Jackson is a special treat. An absolute must read. As I read the story of Lee Madaris and Carly Briggs I could not help but say Brenda you have done it again. I have never read a book in the Madaris saga that I was disappointed with and this book is no exception. I can guarantee that you will not be able to put it down until the end. There is romance and suspense. If you are looking for a great holiday read to put you in that holiday spirit, this is it!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and Suspense 2 Nov 2013
By Sheshe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Of course Mrs. Jackson has done it again!! I loved this book. Mama Laverne strikes again meddling in the affairs of her now great grandchildren's lives; Lee Madaris being her target. Mama Laverne felt it was time for Lee to find love and get married. When Lee found out that he was being targeted, he sets out to beat his great grandmother at her own game, by finding his own woman to marry, but without love in the mix. Lee's proposition was to marry for passion. However, when the woman he marries life is in danger, Lee realizes that he not only married for passion, but love also. I give this book five stars*****

5.0 out of 5 stars Her 100th was FANTASTIC!!! 2 Nov 2013
By M. Hallahan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How do you do it Mrs. Jackson? Madaris man after Madaris man is just to die for. I loved Lee almost as much as Dex and Reese and that's saying something. He was a wonderful match for Carly. She was a beautiful down to earth hard working woman who had been deeply disappointed by two very important people in her life. Leaving her with the idea that the people who should love you the most can't be trusted. Trusting only her long time girlfriend and her Auntie, when she catches Lee's attention (and boy was he attentive) she automatically assumes he's too good to be true. This action/suspense/romance is hot and so well written. Not to much internal drama between Lee and Carly, besides the normal worries a new relationship would have with a marriage proposal, mobsters, secrets, and family drama thrown in. I loved every page of this book and as usual Mrs. Jackson can throw down when it comes to a love scene. Nothing tacky, just fan yourself good...and it was good. I am so glad the 100th book was a Madaris book because those are my absolute favorite stories and I was more than satisfied with this and I can't wait to see what's in store for Nolan. LOVED IT!
