In the small town of River Black, Texas, sits the Triple C—a working cattle ranch that sustains the town. But it also holds painful memories and shocking secrets for the Cavanaugh brothers....

When the Cavanaugh brothers return home for their father’s funeral, they discover unexpected evidence of the old man’s surprising double life—a son named Blue, who wants the Triple C Ranch as much as they do. The eldest son, Deacon, a wealthy businessman who couldn’t wait to leave the ranch and move on with his life, is looking to use his powerful connections to stop Blue at any cost. He never expected the ranch’s forewoman, Mackenzie Byrd, to get in his way.

Mac knows Deacon means to destroy the ranch and therefore destroy her livelihood. But as the two battle for control, their attraction builds. Now Deacon is faced with the choice of a lifetime: Take down the Triple C to feed his need for revenge, or embrace the love of the one person who has broken down every barrier to his heart.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Alluring Angel - Kathy:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

Branded, the first book in Laura Wright’s new series, The Cavanaugh Brothers, is a keeper. The emotions are intense, the sexual steam is sizzling hot, and the storyline never lags.

Branded features the eldest of the Cavanaugh brothers, Deacon. And the one thing that this urban businessman wants is to destroy the ranch that he grew up on. The land and everything on it are reminders of an unsolved murder, betrayals, and old family secrets.

Mackenzie is the foreman of the Triple C Ranch, and she will do what ever she can to stop the destruction of the place that she loves and calls home.

Deacon and Mac clash something fierce, but the attraction that they both feel can’t be denied.

The dialog in Branded is smart and realistic. The sex will have you fanning yourself.

I can’t wait to read the next in this series. The remaining Cavanaugh brothers, Cole, James and Blue, are men that I’ve just got to know better.
