Hi all I think I posted this question before, so sorry if I did. I want to read romance novels where there is a strong brother relationship, like the twins zhadist and his brother in jr wards 'lover awakened' . I can't seem to find many romance novels where the 2 brothers are feuding, and at the end of the book they end up reuniting. Any help would be great I'd prefer historical or paranormal but others are fine too.

I know Lauren Dane has her contemporary "brown family books", Lora Leigh has her BDSM brothers in "the men of August" series, urban fantasy  Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman, I think a lot of Kresley Cole books have a brother theme...

 googled and found a few links worth checking out:

Ties that bind blog

Goodreads always has interesting lists

They're not exactly feuding but they don't all see eye to eye in Jennifer Ashley's historical series beginning with The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Highland Pleasures, Bk 1).  This is the very best because they sort of ignore Ian until they learn to appreciate him.

Thanks everybody! believe it or not I read all the authors at least once except for rob Thurman books. I love Kresley Cole but I think only one book had a brother theme that I remember anyway-dark deeds at nights edge. I didn't like the one lauren dane book I read. I think I read Jennifer Ashley book but I don't remember it. I know sherry Thomas had a book-delicious with a brother theme. I actually really didn't like that book except for the scenes that had the brothers in it. I will check out those links Carole! If anyone thinks of any others please let me know.

I think there is another set of brother books by Courtney Milan (Unclaimed and its sequels). Please check it out on Amazon first though. It's been a long time since I read it.

Julia Quinn wrote 2 companion novels that you might like, the Two Dukes of Wyndham set, same events told from the perspective of a different male cousin in each book.  Book 1 is called The Lost Duke of Wyndham and book 2 is called Mr. Cavendish, I Presume.

Thanks MrsGrimm! I tried two of Quinns' books before and wasn't a huge fan but maybe I will like these better

I think I've got both of them somewhere, but I don't know if I've listed them.  

I'll look around if you want me to.  Just PM me.

Upon further reflection, I thought of a couple of more suggestions.  

Carolyn Jewel's My Immortal series and Deidre Knight's Gods of Midnight series.

Lisa Kleypas - Mine Till Midnight (The Hathaways, Book 1) -- & the whole series if you like the brother thing.

There are 5 books about the 4 sisters' and 1 brother's romances.  It is historical setting.


 

Travis Family   this contemporary series by Lisa Kleypas has brothers.... but not sure that it focuses on their relationships much.  I only read 2 in this series... maybe some more focus on the family in some of the other episodes.
