Leigh Greenwood Þ 2 SummaryS scarred etc He is missing an
from the War Between The States Jeff is ite bitter because he fought for the losing side inthe War Between The States Jeff is Confident Conversation uite bitter because he fought for the losing side in war and self conscious about his missing arm But boy he is so sexy that missing an arm is not a detraction it s an added bonus for me Violet is from the North and she is strongly anti Southern because of her family having ties to the abolitionist movement and also due to losing a family member in the War so there s already tension but there was some serious chemistry and attraction between them This drove the book and made it very enjoyable I could read another 300 pages about Jeff because I just loved him as a hero I liked that Violet could handle him despite him being very alpha and grumpy at that It was also good because Jeff was stuck trying to help Violet watch his troublemaking nieces From what I remember the family calls them the Terrible twins It was pretty funny watching some of their antics which tended to throw thisnlikely couple together Definitely a keeper in all ways I like that they show Lettice the Flower Girl up in later books and in Fern Violet makes a comment that she s been pregnant for most of their marriage Jeff is pretty virile as you can guess 45 I really loved this story of the 3rd brother Jeff the embittered one who survived the war and hated all Yankees who finds himself inarantine in his niece s school with a Yankee house mistress Violet who challenges all of his prejudices At first Jef s attitude made me very desperate but when reading his book I nderstood it and although I really liked Tyler s book I loved it my favorite My first time reading this author and I ite enjoyed it The book is 6 in a series that works a bit like a soap opera in that the characters from all the books come and go and references are made to previous events But I never felt lost so the books do work well as standalonesViolet the 29 yr old spinster from Massachusetts and Jeff the 37 yr old bank mogul who spent two years as a prisoner of war in MassachusettsSo right from the get go the deck is stacked against their love Jeff has made a life In work only dreaming of one day marrying a true daughter of the South Then a run in with a Yankee schoolteacher taught him that he had a lot to learn about passionViolet Goodwin was too refined and genteel for an ornery bachelor like Jeff Yet befor. .
I was pleasantly surprised by how well I liked this book It s
Right Up There Withup there with in my favorite books To be
honest I wasn t looking forward to reading this particular brother s story Jeff was so npleasant inI wasn t looking forward to reading this particular brother s story Jeff was so npleasant in previous books of this series that I wondered how on earth Leigh Greenwood would manage to make a hero out of him Well I think Leigh succeeded Jeff comes across as the tortured hero all right but his actions speak for habit than anything else a fact pointed out by Violet on than one occasion I have to say that his constant hang ps about Yankees got rather annoying but he did finally see the light so I ll let it goViolet was far likable than I was expecting Perhaps it was the fact that she was a little older than most heroines in romances today but she seemed far sensible and level headed Not that she didn t have spirit or a temper she just knew how to control herself I really liked her My biggest complaint has to be the tiny and I mean tiny part of the story that dealt with Violet s ncle s silver mine claim It felt like it was added as an afterthought almost as if the publishers didn t think there was enough suspense in this story I think it would have been a wonderful story without it But that s just my opinion I enjoy this one a LOT Wasn t as good as I was expecting but it was still good It had its funny moments and I liked Violets spunk Despite his harshness I also liked Jeff as well When it came to Jeff I continually forgot that he was missing an arm ntil it was mentionedOne thing I must say though is if you are going to read the Seven Brides series I would recommend reading them in order I failed to do that because I haven t been able to find the others yet so I read Rose bk 1 first and Violet bk 6 was the second one I ve read and when it came to the family I was lost having to piece together information mentioned in this book This my favorite in the Seven Brides series For some reason I just adored Jefferson although he was grumpy and hard to get along with He was so hot to me I like heroes who have injuries or are missing limb. Healing Heart Broken and bitter Jefferson Randolph coud never forget all he had lost in the War Between The States or forgive those he had fought Long after most of his six brothers had found wedded blss the former Rebel soldier kept himself buried. Work of being a cantankerous rude bastard who hates everyone but most especially hates Yankees He keeps the stump of his arm like a shield against feeling anything besides a need to work and stay emotion freeViolet lost the first bloom of her youth to taking care of her dying brother and drunkard father Now she is a house
