From the Back Cover

ONCE YOU FIND
Everything in accountant Skye Barclay's life is fitting smoothly into place until she makes the startling discovery that she was adopted. Not only does she learn that her birth mother has died, but now Skye finds out that she has a biological brother: Vincent. Skye wants to track him down, and her parents, as well as her fiance Wayne refuse to support or accept her. And Wayne, takes it a step further by abruptly ending their engagement.
A LOVE THAT'S TRUE
Skye's search for Vincent leads her to his adoptive parents, Dr. Justin and Lorren Madaris, and, lo and behold, Slade Madaris Vincent's tall, dark, and sexy cousin. Slade is by far the most compelling man Skye has ever met, but she isn't ready to get involved so soon after Wayne's rejection not even when Slade offers her a job so she can stay in town and get to know her brother better.
MAKE IT LAST FOREVER.
Slade is a shrewd businessman, but hiring Skye is one of the riskiest moves he's ever made. Soon their mutual attraction explodes into a steamy summer affair. When Wayne shows up in town, determined to win Skye back, Slade sets out to prove that he and Skye are meant to be together. Because a Madaris man never walks away from a challenge especially when true love is on the line

5.0 out of 5 stars Sizzlin As Always 26 Oct. 2007
By Malaika Tamu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Congratulations and Kudos, Mrs. Jackson on this being your 50th novel! PLEASE, keep 'em coming! All I want to know is how can I marry into the Madaris Family?...LOL..."Slow Burn" offers another thrilling rollercoaster ride with the Madaris'.~~~~~~~Mrs. Jackson did an EXCELLENT job with Slade and Skye's romance. I enjoyed the instant attraction between Skye and Slade. The storyline as always flowed effortlessly across the pages. The characters as usual are UNFORGETTABLE. Main and secondary characters will have you LOL at their antics. Slade is definitely a gentleman that knows how to provide satisfaction to HIS woman, not just a physical satisfaction, but he showed Skye he was capable of being there for her emotionally, too. I totally got caught up in all the passion and desire between Slade and Skye it was so intense it just about scorched the pages. I love the way Mrs. Jackson always brings you up to speed with what's happening with the rest of the family and their circle of friends. You also get a secondary romance with Nedwyn Lansing & Diana Madaris (an older couple), which is okay, but I was more interested in the main characters. This is definitely a CLASSIC Brenda Jackson romance! Now, I am anixously awaiting the next Madaris novel!~~~~~~~If you are a TRUE Madaris fan, this is a DEFINITE MUST READ...you will not be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars (RAW Rating: 4.5) - The search is over 22 Nov. 2007
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Skye Barclay is an only child, and has always felt something was missing in her life. There was no expression of parental love and she was not allowed to have close friends. As an adult Skye's life is still not fulfilling; she is destined to marry a young man who was chosen for her when she was a teenager. But, things changed once she learned she was adopted. Against her parent's wishes Skye is determined to locate her biological mother. Skye learns her mother was killed in a fatal accident, and that she has a teenage brother. Her decision to find her brother brings wrath from her adoptive parents and an ultimatum from her fiancé; she ignores both. Her investigation takes her to the home of Justin Madaris, who adopted her brother ten years ago. It also brings her face to face with Justin's nephew, Slade Madaris.

Slade and his twin brother own a lucrative construction business in Houston; he is in Ennis, Texas visiting Justin. Slade has allowed little time for social networking, and has no time for a serious relationship. But when he meets Skye, the attraction is hypnotic and their responses are priceless. Timing is everything and Skye has an opportunity to spend the summer in Houston with her brother while he works for Slade. When Skye's overzealous ex-fiancé threatens to harm Slade and her brother, the Madaris clan unite forces.

SLOW BURN is filled with mild suspense, carefully hidden secrets, and greedy antagonists. Ms. Jackson, in grand Madaris style, revisits all of the Madaris men and their friends. There is also a secondary story that brings a surprising union between two unsuspecting long time friends. Fans of the series will be surprised but delighted by this union, it had me smiling.

4.0 out of 5 stars When love calls... 29 Jan. 2008
By Renee Spivey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When love calls...

Alright, alright, alright! The Madaris family is back! It's been approximately 2 ½ years since we were last given a glimpse into the lives of our beloved Brenda Jackson family. But with the release of Slow Burn, the story of Slade Madaris, we're reintroduced to the whole clan, including Justin & Lorren, the couple who started it all.

Skye Barclay gets the shock of her life when she finds out that not only is she adopted, but that she also has a brother; a brother who turns out to be Vincent Madaris, the adopted son of Justin & Lorren Madaris.

Against her family's and her fiancé's wishes, Skye heads to Texas to meet Vincent. She's scared of what will happen once she gets to Texas, and understandably so. But her fears are quickly allayed when the Madaris family opens their homes and their hearts to her.

The moment Slade Madaris lays eyes on Skye, he feels an instant inexplicable connection with her. And the fact that Madaris blood runs strong in his veins, Slade pursues Skye, quickly wearing down her defenses and embarking on a beautiful love affair. Their euphoria is short-lived, however, when danger comes calling. Will Skye give into the pressure, or will she stand and fight for her newfound happiness?
Slow Burn is classic Brenda Jackson. You know an author has mastered their craft when you can literally feel the emotions portrayed between the characters; whether it be the familial bonds or the romance and passion between the couples. Each novel that Jackson writes is a testament to this fact. I've yet to be disappointed with any of Jackson's literary offerings. I'm a fan for life.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the Madris Men 3 Nov. 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I could not put this book down. I read this book in 5 hours today. Ms. Jackson did not disappoint me. It was great catching up with all of the Madris's and their close friends. Slade and Skye had chemistry like most of the main characters in Ms. Jackson's books. If you have not read any of Ms. Jackson's books on the Madris family, please go back and read them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 6 Nov. 2007
By Scottie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Slow Burn (the 50th novel)for Ms. Jackson was simply superb! Another Madaris man bites the dust - but does it in that awesome "Madaris" way. This romance was more than worth the wait - how does Ms. J keep doing it? Thanks again for another great romantic-suspense!
