For the Roses by Julie Garwood

For the Roses by Julie Garwood
Claybornes of Rosehill Series, Book 1
Publisher: Dutton Adult (May 2011)
580 pages, eBook (purchased myself for $7.99)
Book Rating: 4 Stars
Sensuality: Red Heart
With a bit of England, a bit of the West and a bit of the harsh big city, this story brings together a lot of Garwood’s best settings, and throws in the topics of slavery and prejudice as well. The four wonderful young men who became Mary Rose’s brothers (Adam, Douglas, Cole and Travis) were courageous, honorable and each uniquely individual. Their interaction with Harrison was great and at times comedic. I loved Mary Rose. Even in the face of pressure, she never forgot who she really was and what was important to her. I loved that Harrison’s devotion to her never wavered, he was truly a rock. I must say there were a lot of editorial errors in this edition. I look forward to reading about three of Mary Rose’s four brothers in the next book in this series, The Clayborne Brides (a collection of three short stories).
