Book Description

15 Aug 2006 Malloy Family
What do you do when love gives you a second chance at life? Book 2 of the Malloy family series. Jack Malloy is haunted. Haunted by memories, he tries to escape the dreams that have stolen his sleep for six months by agreeing to help out his sister Nicky. Unfortunately, time at her ranch offers him no escape when he's confronted by Rebecca Connor's beautiful gray eyes. For unbeknownst to her, she is a participant in his nightmares every night. Rebecca Connor is haunted. Haunted by memories she's trying to escape that have stolen her future. Her attraction to Jack is unsettling for a woman that has sworn off men. But something keeps drawing her closer to him, and she can't help but wonder what his hands would feel like on her skin. Fate pushes them together when they become stranded, snowbound, on a lonely Wyoming ranch. There they rediscover what living is all about. With passion hotter than the sun, they learn to feel pleasure together, how to trust again, and how to love. But is it enough to face the demons of their past, or will they forever be haunted? Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, some violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars And the Winner is . . . 8 Jun 2008
By Foggy Tewsday VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Having thoroughly enjoyed the first novel in Beth Williamson's `Malloy Family' series (`The Bounty'), I'm delighted to report that the second instalment is even better. However, before embarking on this review, I think it's worth pointing out that a number of characters and events that occurred in the `The Bounty' are referred to in `The Prize'. It is, of course, perfectly easy to read `The Prize' as a stand-alone story. But, if erotically-charged romantic westerns are your bag, I reckon you'll love these stories so much that it would be a pity to spoil the first one by reading the second one beforehand. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Jack Malloy is a man haunted by shadows from his past. Nightmares blight his sleep to such an extent that he is left shaking and nauseous when he awakens. His sister, Nicky, is concerned about her favourite brother's bedraggled appearance, but she cannot coax him to tell her of his troubles. Instead, she invites him to help her husband with some building work at their ranch house. Jack readily agrees. He is a skilled craftsman and he hopes that the change of scene may help him.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Nicky's best friend, Rebecca Connor, is also helping with the decorating. This is a little disconcerting to the somewhat reticent Jack because he rather likes Rebecca. Events take an even more disturbing turn for him when Nicky and her husband are suddenly called away back to the Malloy homestead. Shortly after they leave, the weather closes in and deposits so much snow that Jack and Rebecca are effectively cut off from the rest of the area. This leaves them plenty of time to get to know each other better . . .

Shortly after they leave, the weather closes in and deposits so much snow that Jack and Rebecca are effectively cut off from the rest of the area. This leaves them plenty of time to get to know each other better . . .

I should point out, and I'm sorry to harp on about this, that Nicky and her husband are the central characters in the first novel in this series. Furthermore, Rebecca's harrowing back story is also played out in that novel.

What I like most about Beth Williamson's writing in these novels is the punchy, staccato style that she employs. Short passages about events from one character's point of view are followed by the other's take on them. These passages are obviously split along gender lines and add some nice comedic touches to the story. The "explicit sex" that we are warned about on the covers of the novels in this series was somewhat missing in the first one. It is a little more graphic in this second instalment. I've read quite a lot of erotic novels and I watch a lot of erotic films (yes, that's right: I have no life), but I have to admit to spluttering a mouthful of coffee at what I shall only refer to as the `naming of parts' segment. I think it was Rebecca's continual berating of Jack for using even the most mild `curse words' and then saying some pretty choice ones herself in the throes of passion that did for me.

I mean no disrespect when I say that this is a simple story simply told. Beth Williamson is a very skilled writer and storyteller. There's no superfluity in this novel. It's a very entertaining read and very easy to lose yourself in its pages; I finished it in two sittings. The only slightly disconcerting aspect was the high level of emotional outpourings that the characters go through. I know this is par for the course in romantic novels, but it irritated me a little. Yes, my eyes were a little watery on occasion, but I think someone was peeling onions nearby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyfully Reviewed 19 Aug 2008
By Natalie S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Unable to sleep at night because of nightmares, Jack Malloy is barely functioning. When his sister Nicky invites him to her ranch for a visit and to help make furniture, Jack jumps at the chance to escape his memories; memories that haunt him nightly, memories that make him remember. Jack doesn't want to remember that he is the reason a loved one died.

Rebecca Conner is desperately trying to cope with memories of her own, memories of a time best forgotten. When Becky's best friend needs her, she doesn't hesitate to travel to Nicky's ranch to help Nicky get ready for a new baby. There is just one problem. Jack is there and he doesn't seem to want Becky near him. What Jack doesn't know is that for as much as Jack doesn't want to be near Becky, she is aching to be with him. Fate helps her out when Jack is attacked by a wild animal and Becky is the only person available to take care of him.

In a matter of weeks, the two become closer than ever. They yearn for each other, but with one misunderstood statement, things come to a crashing halt. It will take all that Becky has to make Jack understand. Especially since Jack thinks she betrayed his confidence and told his secret.

The Prize by Beth Williamson is the second book of the Malloy Family series and packs an emotional punch. The fact that the hero has suffered makes The Prize unique. I wanted to take Jack in my arms and just hold him, but then with the next breath, I wanted to smack him for being so ornery. Rebecca, for all of her suffering, was endearing to me for her tact and ability to take a chance on love, despite her fears.

The Prize by Beth Williamson was an emotionally charged highly sensual read that I took great pleasure in reading. I found myself immersed in the plot from beginning to end. Totally satisfied, I can't wait to read the next installment of Ms. Williamson's wonderful family, the Malloy's.

I read the entire series and loved each and every book. Not the most erotic - true - BUT some very HOT spots and lots of wonderful dialogue and family interaction. I would recommend this series to anyone looking for true 'calgon take me away' reads.

The Malloy family is wonderful. Jack Malloy story The Prize is a book you can not put down. I laughed, I cryed and I thought it was a 5 star book. Jack and Rebecca have haunted past by the same monster. They find comfort and love in each other and learn to love and over come the past. Jack and Rebeccas story is wonderful. They learn to trust one another. Family helps bring them together and keep them together. Their is strong family love in the Malloy family. They do any thing to help other family members.
