The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood delivers the first novel in an enthralling new series set amid the shifting dynamics of a Southern family defined by wealth and privilege—and compromised by secrets, deceit, and scandal.... For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege—as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet.For Lizzie King, Easterly’s head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted—and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane’s beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets.As family tensions—professional and intimately private—ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.From the Hardcover edition.
I am a huge fan of J. R. Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood series. When I heard she was writing a story about a southern family and all the mischief that can come from wealth and privilege I just had to get ahold of it.
The Bourbon Kings is full of scandal, sex, and action. Once you think something is one way, your stunned to find that it just isn’t the case. You are taken on an exciting rollercoaster ride, that you just dont want to ever get off.
J.R. Ward is one of my “go to” authors. I just can’t get enough of her amazing stories. They are so creative, and unique. You won’t see anything else like it. I couldn’t put The Bourbon Kings down, and I am sure you won’t be able to either!!
