Two classic Westmoreland novels from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Brenda Jackson
The Durango Affair
"I'm having your baby."
Savannah Claiborne's simple statement sets off an avalanche in Montana ranger Durango Westmoreland's carefully ordered life. Suddenly an unforgettable night of passion with the hazel-eyed beauty has turned into a lifetime obligation for the confirmed bachelor.
But Westmoreland men always honor their responsibilities, and leaving Savannah to raise his baby on her own is not an option.
So he proposes and she accepts…with one condition—theirs will be a marriage in name only.
Ian's Ultimate Gamble
Winner takes all…
Casino owner Ian Westmoreland thinks he's seen the last of Brooke Chamberlain—that is until she checks in to his resort claiming to need a little R & R. Brooke betrayed him years before, and Ian is willing to bet there's more to her visit than she's admitting.
No woman even came close to igniting the heat and passion inside him as Brooke once did. And if Ian is going to discover what she's hiding, what better way than by seducing her? But in this game of bedroom cat and mouse, the stakes are very high. Raising the question, will Ian's wager pay off?

Well, sad to say that my husband couldn't handle my inner bad girl. He did something very stupid, and we are no longer together.
Being able to close my eyes and just listen to someone read to me.
The fact that he was a ranger. I love the outdoors, and could picture the way eveything looked.
She has a very easy listening voice. I could listen to her all day.
I almost cried when she was found in the suv cold. I didn't want anything to happen to her or the baby.
Just waiting for more Brenda Jackson Books.
What a sweet, enjoyable read and/or listen! This is so romantic & sweet. A very sweet, nice book. I was a pleasant person while listening to this...so NICE, not complicated - just good!
Not Brenda's best. There were so many opportunities to make the storyline more interesting in the first half. The second one was better. Now the narrator Madison Vaughn and Gabra Zackman I believe to be the same person. At any rate she does "ok" until she does female voices. They sound like preschoolers or very weak. Hearing a kids voice saying erotic things....yuck!
I love the Westmoreland series, and was excited to get these two stories in a bundle. However, they did not hold my attention nearly as well as prior stories in the series. They were just ok. I appreciate the lack of unnecessary drama, but the romances here were cookie cutter and weak with little excitement. Honestly, I was glad when they were over. Also, the narrator's accents in Ian's book were too much, and her tone didn't match the context of the scene quite often in both stories.
The story was interesting enough, even though it was a little too hard to believe, but I hated the female reader's interpretation of the male voice. He sounded like a robot; more like my GPS system than a sexy male human. It's a struggle to get through.
I bought this on sale for $4.95 and didn't pay enough attention to the book info. If I had, the Harlequin name would have stopped me. I just haven't enjoyed the books from that publisher. Less than a few chapters in, my mistake became obvious. Ideas and phrases were repeated ad nauseum; and both character's rehashed past events that left them ambivolent about relationships. The female character had a better excuse- her father kept a secret second family. The male character's traumatizing event..a spoiled woman embarrassed him..poor baby. These situations hardly carry equal gravity. And so the story is set..but I just couldn't muster any interest in what happened next. Life's too short.
The narrator has a very pleasant voice and did what she could.
I didn't even finish listening to the book, Focus on the story line - not the sex
Nora Roberts Whiskey Beach
The story line could have been a good one but the entire book was all about the love scenes and it just didn't work for me. I prefer an actual story - not just hearing about what they do to each other sexually.
I couldn't even finish the book. I kept trying to but finally just removed it from my device.
