Meet the Brannigan brothers—seven sexy brothers who bring the heart and the heat! From bestselling authors Barbara Freethy, Ruth Cardello, Melody Anne, Christie Ridgway, Lynn Raye Harris, Roxanne St. Claire and JoAnn Ross comes a brand new contemporary romance family series: 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. You won't want to miss a single one!
Running a billion-dollar hedge fund doesn't leave a lot of time for fun in the sun, but that doesn't bother James Brannigan. After spending his youth helping his widowed father raise six younger brothers, James took a cue from his workaholic dad and channeled all his energy into business. So when he learns that his father left him a tiny winery on the Amalfi Coast, he's not thrilled. A trip to Italy is the last thing his busy schedule needs, but the winery has to go. Which means...he has to go to the winery.
Kyra Summers is the definition of a free-spirit. In her thirty years on earth, she’s never stayed in one place long enough to put down roots until she arrived in Positano and fell hard for the bold flavors, hot sun, warm people, and above all, the wonderful wine. Her job at a small, local winery is her first attempt to make a real home and the people who run the place start to become like family to her. Until the winery's new owner, a devastatingly handsome, shockingly ruthless billionaire, arrives with plans to shut it all down. Kyra's willing to do whatever it takes to save this place she loves—even if it means cozying up to a man who's harder than granite and twice as cold.
But the Italian sunshine has a way of heating things up—with every fiery exchange, they strike sparks and draw irresistibly closer together. James is stunned by his attraction to a woman unlike any he's met before, and Kyra discovers a simmering passion hidden behind his polished exterior. But passion won't be enough to change James's mind and his priorities, which is exactly why his late father sent him to Italy. Changing James is going to take a much bigger risk—it's going to take love.

I continue loving this series!
This is yet another hit in the ongoing series. I am even more in thrall with this concept and just wish I could have been in the room as the authors developed the bones of the stories for this series. I love the whole concept of the legacies and messages from beyond the grave for the boys from their father. I keep hoping the father isn't really dead...just waiting for each son to get his message before he reappears in their lives a changed man. I know it's sappy and not going to happen but in my dream world that's what occurs!
This entry to the series by Roxanne St.Clair is a very enjoyable story. I've read most of her books so I was sure that I would like book 6. I loved the dynamic of the female protagonist's mother embodying James world so it was a hurdle he had to jump. It was pretty easy to see the big reveal coming and know what would happen and I thought it all wrapped up a bit too quickly and easily. It was like the steps to get there were all stretched out and then bam, the rubber band snapped immediately instead of having to be worked through. It was almost like the author was going along telling her story and then looked down at the word count and went "oops, gotta wrap it up " I really wanted the confrontation to be more involved.
But that's not a major drawback to the book and I throughly enjoyed the book. Highly recommend the book and the series. Sad it is ending next week!!
I just loved this book! It was a fun, quick read and the characters are awesome!

James Brannigan is the oldest of seven brothers. When James' mom died when he was 12, he helped his father raise the other six boys. In reality, his father withdrew into his work and James was left to take care of his brothers. Now as an adult, James puts all of his time and energy into his work. When James' father passed away from cancer, without telling any of the sons that he even had it, he left each son a part of his legacy. Through each gift, each son finds something he didn't even realize they were looking for.
James was left a tiny winery in Positano, Italy and he had no clue why. He didn't really drink or take time to enjoy himself because he was always working. James decides he is going to check the place out and then probably sell it. He already has a standing offer from an American company looking to expand.
James arrives in Italy and is thrown for a loop starting with his ride to his hotel. Seems everyone knows everyone's business here! Then in walks Kyra Summers....a free spirit, little blonde thing, ray of sunshine that catches his attention. I just loved their first meeting! Too funny! When he realizes who Kyra actually is things get even better. When James meets the Sebastiani family that's when the real fun really begins! This huge group of people were so fun, especially Anamaria!
As James is trying to figure out why his father left him this winery, his feelings for Kyra begin to grow. He is for once relaxing and taking time out for himself and not thinking about work. As James is starting to find the answers to all his questions, he starts to understand why his dad sent him to the winery.
I just adored these two characters. James was a typical first born, always wanting to do the right thing. Kyra was such a breath of fresh air and she was almost always happy! Together they each found something that neither of them realized they were ever looking for.
Hot & Handsome JAMES Learns to have FUN!
I received an ARC for an honest review. I loved James, by Roxanne St. Claire. Roxanne delivered another wonderful book. I loved the characters in this book and the setting was amazing I have never been to Italy,but felt that I was there with Kyra and James walking through Positano. The story begins with seven bachelor brothers whose father has just passed away leaving each one a unique "legacy" that they must fulfill before the remainder of his estate will be divided. James is the oldest of the seven sons and runs his own hedge fund business in New York. A vineyard in Positano, Italy is the legacy gift that his father has left for James. James has no idea why his father left him this vineyard that he never knew he owned, so he heads to Positano in search on the answers. His intention is to sell the vineyard for the best price and to head home as quickly as possible. That is until he meets Kyra Summers, whose role is to "get cozy" with James,even though Kyra believes that she is not James's type. Kyra is everything that James is not, she is carefree, fun and a burst of sunshine. James discovers that his father bought the vineyard for his mother as a birthday gift after vacationing with her in Positano. His mother was killed in a car accident before her birthday and James's father never returned to the vineyard after her death. James being the oldest took over the role of head of the house in her absence. He started to believe that women don't stay and this followed him into his adult life. Kyra was raised by a single mother, who was a workaholic. She was a closer and they never stayed anywhere for very long. James's work ethic reminds her so much of her mother. Kyra found a home in Positano, after travelling the world. Never settling any place for very long. After being welcomed by the Sebastianis, Positano became the place that Kyra decided to call home. She lives with Annamarie, the matriarch of the Sebastianis, the family who runs the vineyard. Kyra became part of this large Italian family whose motto is "family is everything". James and Kyra spend lots of time together, Kyra offers to be his tour guide to show him the area and ride him around the narrow Italian streets on her Vespa. James starts to have "fun", begins to let lose and not let his work control his life. James discovers so much about his parents that he did not know. He comes to realize why his father left him the vineyard and decides not to sell it. Romance blooms between James and Kyra. James has planned a romantic day for Kyra. Then the unthinkable happens. Roxanne is great with her plot twists and I definitely did not see this one coming, what a surprise. Everything works out in the end, including plans for a wedding in Positano in October after the harvest.
