Title: The Clayborne Brides
Julie Garwood

the summary (Google books):

First introduced in Julie Garwood's magnificent New York Times bestseller For the Roses, the Clayborne brothers of Blue Belle, Montana, have been embraced by millions more through this trio of #1 bestselling novels. Now collected in one volume for the first time, these stories tell of three spirited brothers -- once a mismatched gang of street urchins -- who learn that love flourishes in the most unexpected places....

1)One Pink Rose- Headstrong Travis takes a journey that opens his eyes to the splendor of his beloved West -- and his heart to Bostonian Emily Finnegan.

2)One White Rose- Steady, quiet Douglas will do anything to protect a creature in need -- and that includes the strong-willed Isabel Grant.

3)One Red Rose- Thoughtful Adam learns a powerful secret from the irrepressible Genevieve Delacroix -- that true freedom only comes when you trust your heart.

what do i think about this?:

I never read anything by Julie Garwood, honestly. Well, the book compiled 3 mini series of Claybornes brothers, and I finished in less than a day. I like all the series in it but I couldn't say I'm enthralled with the book.but reading it was ok and enjoyable.

Each story of the Clayborne brother was really short as ever as each story comprehended in less than 300 pages (with big prints too). Characters development were vulnerable and their love chemistry/development is too quick although i know it was created as love at first sight..The storyline also was like rushing into something, the end maybe? But of course, I met my expectations when they all lead to a happy life in the end.

All in all, it was a fast read as I could finish in less than a day and I recommend it to all Historical Romance fans..It should be entertaining and breathtaking =)

p/s: I cheated on my other book that I'm suppose to read (Here on Earth). Technically, I don't mean it. I left it at my friend's house and ended up reading with her book instead. Ha!


  1. Wow, you read very fast! I'm not a big fan of historical romance but have definitely heard of this author. :)

  2. Hello Alice! They have very big prints and trust me, you'll finish it in no time too.. =)

  3. I've read only one other book by this author and though it wasn't a 5/5, I did like it. Guess most books in this area rate in the 3 or 4 out of 5 stars.

  4. @ j.kaye = i couldn't agree more with you.i like other genre much better e.g. YA, contemporary, science fition, thriller (the best).. =)

    @ juju = thanks a lot, even i know this one might the shortest review ever! ;p

  5. hmm I loved her historical romances set in Scotland, The Bride and The Wedding. Not sure if this one is really one I'd enjoy but thanks for your review :-)

  6. @ teddyree: Thanks. maybe I should a lot of that genre and see how it goes..maybe i'm going to like that genre soon. =p


Thanks for the comments! XOXO ;p
