Cherished by Elizabeth Knox and Iris Sweetwater is one of the best books I have read this year. This is the third book in The Clans series. This is the story of Willow and Duncan. Willow is the illegitimate daughter of the head of the Adame Clan and she wants nothing to do with her father or the clan. Duncan works for Willow’s father and is tasked with the job of protecting her from the Italians who want to eliminate the Clans. Duncan is forced to bring Willow back home when her life is threatened. Since all of her step-siblings are gone and her father is dying, Willow is the next in line to lead the clan, which she does not want to do. From the first time they met there has been a connection between them and it gets stronger every day that they spend together. Will the Italians get to Willow or will Duncan be able to protect her? Will they let the Clans rules keep them apart? Will they get their HEA? You will need to read the book to get the answers. This book has suspense, action, romance, mafia, Russian clans, twists and turns, and emotional highs and lows. This was an awesome read and I definitely recommend it. I can’t wait to read the next book by these two amazing authors.
5.0 out of 5 starsA gripping and enthralling book...

If you're looking for an easy to follow, hot, steamy, sexy, smooth flowing read that captures your attention from the start. Congratulations my friends you've found it. The characters and scenes were realistic and believable. Twists and turns and unpredictable surprises that kept my eyes on the pages and on the edge of my seat. I followed the characters fascinated as their personalities transformed and blended. Vivid detailed descriptions were so life like and on point. The storyline was solided and well defined. Cold showers may be in order when your finished. Elizabeth Knox did a remarkable job bringing this story together beautifully.

Duncan has just been assigned to protect Kristof Adame's daughter when his health is failing and the rest of his children have been killed. He is sent to Australia to try and befriend her and keep her safe from Kristof's enemies.
Willow Kim escaped from England the moment her mother and boyfriend are killed. She wants to be as far away from her father and everything he is involved in as possible. She has opened her own bakery and is happy with her new life.
When she befriends her new "neighbors" she has no idea what she is about to get involved in. Will she learn the truth and what it means for her?
I thought Duncan was a great character and you knew almost immediately that he would end up falling for Willow. Yet I wasn't too sure what that would mean for everything.
I admired Willow for having the ability to escape to Australia but you knew she was going to be dragged back into her father's life.
I was definitely mad at Kristof for dragging Willow back into his life and then for having her meet certain criteria about who she was required to marry and why.
Through the story there was also the story of the betrayal of the clans and who was behind so many deaths. I was completely shocked at what was revealed with this and everything that happened with it.
I felt terrible for Duncan as he was subject to watching Willow be with anyone that was deemed respectable to her father to carry on his legacy.
I loved what was discovered at the end with Kristof's health and then what Willow did at the end of the book!!

Elizabeth and Iris have out done themselves with this third book in the Clans series. I mean I was blown away and I have not read the first two and I need to because I was could not put this book down. I actually stopped reading a book I was reading to start this one because I read a little and I could not put it down.
Willow OMG I love me some Willow. She has left her life in England and moved on because she wants nothing to do with her father and his lifestyle. He is not a nice man and he lives a life of crime. After losing her mother and boyfriend Willow is determined to move on with her life and live a normal life.
One day Willow notices that the office space next to her bakery is rented out and when she sees the man who has rented it she is blown away. She likes what she sees and wants to get to know him but she is leery at first. Then trouble comes looking for Willow and the new guy vows to protect her.
This is where the story kicks off and things start to get heated up between Willow and the new guy Duncan. This story had it all in it suspense, love, and so much more! So go ahead and one click this one and enjoy Willow and Duncan!
Cherished: The Clan book 3 by Elizabeth Knox and Iris Sweetwater was a wonderfully dark story about Willow and Duncan. Her father is the head of the local mafia and she left to open her own pastry shop…wanting to never be a part of that life. But, all of her siblings have been killed and her father is on his deathbed. She must take over.
I LOVE the tough woman with nerves of steel in this story. Willow allows no one to get the better of her. Duncan is told to protect her….but, things between them may blossom into more? But, he doesn’t fit the mold to be in her life
Narrated beautifully and perfectly by Addison Barnes, she helps bring this intense story and characters to life. Great story!!!
I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Reader Copy of this Audiobook.
