Publisher's Summary

A stunning, heartfelt new stand-alone by New York Times best-selling author Mia Sheridan - available in audio first!

Brant Talbot runs a glitzy network of high-end bars in New York City, enjoying all the benefits of the lavish lifestyle he's worked so hard to achieve. When he learns that his estranged father is dying, he must return to his family’s Kentucky horse farm - and to a past he thought he left behind. 

While facing long-buried truths, he collides with his father’s secretary, Isabelle Farris. Despite his undeniable attraction to the beautiful, independent young woman, he sees secrets in her eyes and believes she has designs on Graystone Hill. 

Now the one woman he can’t afford to trust is about to become the one he can’t let go.

Another hit by Mia Sheridan!

Isabelle Farris spends her days working on a horse farm in Kentucky, a place where she had once found solace in the equine therapy program she attended after being the sole survivor of a home invasion that took the lives of her husband and daughter. As the owner of the farm’s health gets progressively worse she calls his estranged son to let him know that his father is dying and after a terse exchange she tells him he can do whatever he wants with that information. Brant is a successful entrepreneur in New York and has no plans to return to the ranch where he grew up and he especially doesn’t want to make amends with his estranged father. After he receives a call that his father is dying he realizes he wants the rare bourbon produced on the farm and recipe for it that collectors salivate over and people pay a mint for. If he can sell it exclusively at his bars and restaurants it would be a huge draw to his places.

This book is a little bit steamier than some of her other ones, but the story and depth that her books have are still there. It has some twists and turns. It has character growth. It has a very strong female lead, one who is willing to step outside of her comfort zone but is also self-aware and knows when she needs to just be true to herself. It deals with loss and of ‘found family’ that works so beautifully in this narrative. I loved the sense of homecoming and all that entails - and of moving forward after going back.

Jacob Morgan (aka Zachary Webber!) and Virginia Rose do a fantastic job with the narration. Both bring depth, emotion and life to their characters. They had me smiling and tearing up at different parts - they had me invested and engaged in their story - and they could not have done a better job. This is wonderful book and I would highly recommend it!!! Mia Sheridan does not disappoint.

My favorite romance of 2018

Brant's Return is EVERYTHING! The Kentucky horse ranch was a dream that swept me away, and I loved the mystery story. Jacob Morgan as Brant gave me eargasms, while Virginia Rose's narration brought tears to my eyes. Kudos to Mia Sheridan on a beautiful work of art. This book is pure magic!!

Not everything lost can’t be found

A story of loss and betrayal and being found and repaired told as only Mia Sheridan can.

Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose were perfection as these characters, bringing to life this story told in dual narrative.

🌟 5 Stars 🌟

Mia Sheridan does it again! She can write a story about anything and I'd probably love it.
In this book Isabella is a little broken but finding her way through tragedy and loss. Brant is a successful business man who doesn't realize how much he needs his family. These two come together and the chemistry is off the charts. I love how their relationship progresses and how the family dynamic comes together. The ending was PERFECT!!!

The narration was great, both narrators are fabulous so it's no surprise that they are great together.

A

Brant's Return is the love story of two people wounded by traumatic events in their past and brought together by chance and their love of Brant's father and their Kentucky ranch. Lots of conflicting emotions, ups and downs and twists and turns make this an intense and enjoyable romantic read. Highly recommended, feel good romance.

4.5 Stars

I thoroughly enjoyed this emotional drama, released as an audible original (I love it when authors release on audio first). Returning to his estranged father’s ranch answering to the plea of his father’s secretary, Isabelle Farris, and connecting with more than the land and the horses, Brant Talbot realises what he’s been missing living in the City. An enemies to lovers of sorts. I loved the story, which had more than one twist added in, the characters were strong, sexy and vulnerable at times. The setting is perfect, I’ve recently been enjoying novels set on ranches and this is no exception. I loved the story, the characters, the writing, and most definitely the narration. I love Jacob Morgan, and Virginia Rose was a perfect partner for him, their interpretations of Brant and Isabelle were spot on.

Brilliant!

When Brant returns home to see his dying estranged father, he doesn't expect to fall for his secretary Isabelle. But the horse farm in Kentucky is Isabelle's sanctuary and Brant's life is in New York. Do long distance relationships ever work? Mia Sheridan's writing is exciting and sophisticated. The story took hold of me from page one and kept my attention all the way through as secrets and lies from the past are revealed in this thrilling and emotional read. The narrators are excellent and I highly recommend.

Ok but not great

This book was ok but it really didn’t grab your heartstrings like you’d expect from a Mia Sheridan story. Something has changed since her earlier books - demands from publishers which has meant she’s churning out books but doesn’t have the time to put some soul in them maybe?

The story had way too many predictable plot points, and cheesy hallmark movie/5 afternoon movie moments as well. Real shame as I was looking forward to being swept up in a story and romance, but I was just left hanging.

I’ve heard the male narrator before, but under a different name (Zachary Webber) - lovely voice, though he does often sound a bit bored. Not heard Virginia Rose before but she was good.

story was good

narrator's were brilliant. Mr Morgan's Inflections were brilliant. chapter17 was nearly my end point. I've never read ms Sheridan work before and things went a little over the top for a time there. it didn't gel with me but I persisted. I guessed the mystery so that didn't keep me going but I started to warm to the descriptive writing and conch used. she seems to have strong plots but I felt it wasn't backed up with character narration...mind change was to easy to obvious....I've seen her others books and the plots look great...just don't know if she can deliver with depth?

Another great tale from Mia Sheridan

A great book full of services chances off all kinds. Chances to build bridges before it's too late, chances to find hope when all hope seems gone and a chance to love when loving is the last thing you feel capable of. The narration was spot on ad usual.
