Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward's thrilling finale to her Bourbon Kings series, the Bradford family dynasty teeters on the edge of collapse after the murder of their patriarch - and a shocking arrest.

At first the death of William Baldwine, the head of the Bradford family, was ruled a suicide. But then his eldest son and sworn enemy, Edward, came forward and confessed to what was, in fact, a murder. Now in police custody, Edward mourns not the disintegration of his family or his loss of freedom...but the woman he left behind. His love, Sutton Smythe, is the only person he has ever truly cared about, but as she is the CEO of the Bradford Bourbon Company's biggest competitor, any relationship between them is impossible. And then there's the reality of the jail time that Edward is facing.

Lane Baldwine was supposed to remain in his role of playboy, forever in his big brother Edward's shadow. Instead he has become the new head of the family and the company. Convinced that Edward is covering for someone else, Lane and his true love, Lizzie King, go on the trail of a killer - only to discover a secret that is as devastating as it is game changing.

As Lane rushes to discover the truth and Sutton finds herself irresistibly drawn to Edward in spite of his circumstances, the lives of everyone at Easterly will never be the same again. For some this is good; for others it could be a tragedy beyond imagining. Only one thing is for certain: Love survives all things. Even murder.

Loved every second of this entire series.

I finished all three books in about two weeks and they were incredible. Another hit by one of my favorite authors.

Freaking awesome ending to a great story!!!

I loved this book! Narrator could of had a better grasp on the female character voices, they all sounded old and rough, other than that I would repeat the listen.

A great ending

The only negative comment I have is about the narrator. His manly voice is awesome, but his female voice sounds shrewish and grating. All the females sound alike, and you tend to not want to like them based on the sound of the voice. Other than that, it's a fantastic read!

Read, don't listen

I read the first two books of this series on my Kindle and enjoyed them. I wish I would have done the same with the third. I struggled with the narrator and in particular his portrayal of all female characters. They ended up sounding like stupid bimbos from Clueless or Legally Blonde. I did not enjoy this book as much as the first two but maybe that is to be expected whennthe author wants to wrap everything up nicely in the last book of the series.

So good.

I have been a JR Ward fan for quite some time. When she started this series, I knew it would be good, but this went to a new level of good. to see how the characters mature, their personalities develop and how you can feel the pain, joy, laughter and love. I am going to get the book to read some of the parts I missed. I
