For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege—as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet.
For Lizzie King, Easterly’s head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted—and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane’s beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets.
As family tensions—professional and intimately private—ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.
Here is the reason why I have chosen that book, First of all I am totally in love with J. R. Ward and the Black Dagger Brotherhood. It all started when I was looking for something on Amazon, I have found her new book, the title and the cover page didn´t really show what is moral behind writing that book, that´s why i got curious about the content. But when i read High-Society and affairs, I wasn´t really amused and started to be skeptical.. how was the book ? After finishing the first chewy 70 pages I got fascinated from the story and the spelling style, the cover story about the Bardford family, the chaotic love story about Lane, Lizzy and the unexpected twists flashed me so hard that I had to close the book for a while and think about what I have just read. If my work wouldn´t take so much time I would have finished it in less than a week. Later on, I found out that the cover of the book was very appropriate, as it really showed how Lane looks like. Finally, I would buy the next volume of the book because I’m really looking forward to knowing how things are going to move along.
