Sisters Make the Best of Friends
Bound Branded & Brazen
How much do you love books that have sisters who will fight with each other and fight for each other? I know I do, and in Jaci Burton’s new release Bound Branded & Brazen, sisters Valerie, Brea and Jolene find themselves reunited on the family ranch after a long time apart.  As with many relationships time and distance can make you strangers. However with sisters who once shared a close relationship, there is still a thread of love and a shared history that will forever bind them together. 
Bound Branded & Brazen are three interconnecting novellas that not only explore the dynamics between these siblings with quick repartee, a shared understanding and a deep family connection, but it is also trademark Burton with high octane heroes who would do anything for the women they love. Ms. Burton has a wonderful way of creating and crafting friendships as well as relationships. They ring true every time, and BB&B is no exception.  You’ll also find that fiery and sensual explosion between the heroes and their heroines that we’ve come to expect when we sit down to read a Burton book.  The ‘thing’ that keeps me going back to this author’s books is her ability to seamlessly marry the sensual with the emotional so there is always a lot of heart and soul to go along with the heat in her characters. 
With each novella you learn more about the individual sisters and their journey to love. And when you have your sisters watching your back and a man you love holding your hand, the world becomes a much better place than it was yesterday. 
The often magical and sometimes cantankerous relationship between sisters has always fascinated me.  I’m lucky enough to have my own special relationship with my two sisters and I really couldn’t imagine my life without them.  Through all the ups and downs, no matter what, they keep on loving me, and there is nothing more special than that.  
What about you?  Do you have a special relationship with your sisters? 
And on a selfish note – any good recommendations on books with sisters?

Great article, my sisters have become friends although after surviving a childhood of sibling rivalry and thoughts of creative ways to get rid of each other it amazes me that we are.

 

My favorite sisters series is by Susan Mallery-The Bakery Sisters and the Lone Star Sisters. I love sister series and the one above looks yummy

Hey dhaupt - it is amazing how we've survived our childhood shenanigans to become friends with our sisters.  I could tell you stories!  I haven't read the Lone Star Sisters - so thanks so much for the recommendation - I'm going to check it out right now.

 

Hi Cheyenne - I absolutely love the Three Sisters Island Trilogy - funny you should mention this one, I just re-read it this summer and all three books have a permanent place on my keeper shelf.

I've read Jaci's books before and liked them, but this is right up my alley. I'm one of three sisters AND my sister had three daughters. I've got to check this one out.

 

I also love Nora's Three Sisters Island trilogy. That is probably my favorite trilogy of hers.

 

I think of Patricia Gaffney's Saving Graces as a "sisters" story even though it's not about sisters-by-birth. Marian Keyes has a wonderful series about sisters, too.

I am currently reading the Lone Star Series......great reads.  I am the middle of three sisters.  It took the death of my brother to make us closer.  We stray sometimes from each other but always come back.  Now that we are all pushing "50" I feels like we have all let our guards down and are really enjoying each other.  Hope it stays that way
