"For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege--as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet. For Lizzie King, Easterly's head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted--and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane's beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets. As family tensions--professional and intimately private--ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive"

The plot is self-acknowledged as a bit of classic Dynasty soap opera - power. intrigue, and money; love, lust, and lots of sex; family politics, dysfunctional parents, philandering spouses, betrayal, murder, and the like - but the writing is definitely a cut above. The backdrop is all wonderful things Kentucky: thoroughbred horse racing and bloodlines, high couture, basketball, acres of blue grass, and of course, the best Bourbon in the world.

This looks like the start of another well crafted series .

Absolutely loved this book. There was some romance and a little suspense. A quick, easy read with characters that really draw you in. This is a new author for me and I can't wait for the sequel.

I love reading J. R. Wards' novels. This one, for me, started out slow. I almost started a different one. Now I'm glad I didn't. I gave it a few chapters and it got really good. I was actually up until 6am this morning reading, unable to put it down. Now I too am waiting for her next one. A definite 5 star read! Happy Reading!

I enjoyed this first book in the series and would like to know when will the next book be coming out? Ms. Ward is going to have the start writing a little faster as I hate waiting.

A good read. J.R. Ward kept me captivated like with her series "Black dagger brotherhood". Liked the short chapters format. Looking forward to the 2nd volume ; lots of questions to be answered. Good mix of romance and suspense.
