Publisher's Summary

Passionate payback

They say you can forgive, but you can never forget. Virgil Bougard takes that saying to heart. Four years ago Kara Goshay believed a vicious lie about him and ended their relationship. And even after her apology, Virgil is still bitter. He doesn't intend to make things easy for Kara when his family's firm hires her PR company to revamp his playboy image. But faking a liaison with Kara for the media backfires when the line between fantasy and reality is blurred by strong sexual attraction.

Kara wanted forgiveness. Instead she's deep into a heated affair with the powerful, charismatic man she can't resist. The man who claims he'll never forgive her, especially when a secret enemy puts her professional reputation in jeopardy. Stakes are high - but so is their searing desire, a connection so intense it could possibly tame this elusive, unforgiving bachelor at last.

Brenda Jackson has wrote another great one...

Vergil's story was intimate and personal which is what Brenda Jackson is known for but I do not believe that the person who read the story on audio did a great job. I didn't believe that she did the story any justice and I didn't believe that the characters felt real. That is the point in me buying the audio books because I want to really feel apart of the story. Great story but I would have enjoyed more had I just read the book instead to buying the audio.

Another Brenda Jackson romance novel!

You will love this story of love and patience conquering all and how one's inability to forgive almost destroyed true love. Masterfully written.

Waiting for Marty's story to evolve.

Not too exciting and predictable

Didn't really enjoy this book. It was predictable and boring. It was a sweet story but nothing exciting about this story.

Great romance but it is a much better read

Good story but that narration was horrible, greatly took away from the story. I wish a male did it save
yourself and just get the book!

Thoroughly Enjoyed

Both the story and narration kept enthralled for 6 hours. Well done. Highly recommend reading and listening to.

Vigil and Kara

This was a very good book. Sometimes Vigil made me angry by being so stubborn.

narration can make or break a book :-(

I love Brenda Jackson and very much enjoyed this particular series of hers with the God Brothers but the narration is terrible. These voices sound like people from Texas or West Virginia, somewhere with a very Southern Country dialect and it's absolutely disconcerting with her African American characters. I can appreciate it if this was taking place in the Deep South , but I didn't get that sense that this is where the book was set. I truly regret having bought this now as opposed to ordering the book so I can hear their voices that are so very familiar to me and my family.

Bachelor's Biting the Dust

Kara and Virgil had a falling out and four years ago, and now four years later they were still on the outs. Mainly because of Virgil's unforgiving heart.. So I'll be honest. The store was vintage Brenda Jackson. The storyline is the same the names are changed to give us another story. Otherwise it's a good story, but similar to many others over the years. I am not hating readers, so please oh please, don't get angry with me. I'm just pointing out what I see. A fan still. And by the way the Narrator was not the best either. Fake southern accent was hilarious!

Brenda Jackson Reads

The story is good, but why does the narrator on every Brenda Jackson book make the male characters sound wimpy with a country twang? The male characters are supposed to exude masculinity & sex appeal. The narrator is horrible. Choose a male to read the male parts. The narration takes away from the storyline.
