Hi all, sorry if someone already made this search. I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations for romance books similar to Shannon Mckenna's Mccloud series. I would like to find a series that has brothers in it maybe with kidnapping of one or something, but that there is intereaction between the brothers something that I think Shannon Mckenna missed out on in her series. I would like it to be romantic suspense too please. Thanks all!

Thanks Lisa I've heard Cherry Adair is a good author,I think I tried to read one of her books and I couldn't finish it. I was looking at that author's page and it looks like her t-flac series is also like intwined with other series? Did I read that right?

Evelyn,  I cant remember that series intertwined with any of her other series but ,its been awhile since I've read them and I think I read them out of order. Started with

In too Deep , but I think my favorite one was Kiss and Tell.     Nope this one was my favorite....LOL    Hide and Seek

Evelyn, I've never tried Maya's Highlander books.  Give the first KGI book a try, it's called The Darkest Hour.  I literally could not put it down once I started it.  I plowed thru McKenna's McCloud Brothers series as well and the KGI books are really just as good.

anne stuarts def. one of my favorite author, although I don't think she's written anything based on brothers. Her ice series is almost perfect, I think you can skip ice blue and fire & ice is kind of a let down but the others are great, I think my favorite is black ice.Sarah I think I actually have darkest hour and didn't finish it, I'll pick it up again, Lisa I will try those flak-books and see if they're in the library.

I agree about Anne Stuart's Ice series.  They are dark and edgy with very alpha, almost bad guy heroes.  There's no sweet & sappy love stories here.  Some of them were much better than others, but I liked them all.

hey Michelle, which was your favorite ice book from anne stuart, just curious? I just re-ordered her nightfall book, I didn't like it and gave up halfway through it before but I thought it was worth another shot =)

I would say Ice Blue was my favorite (#3), followed by Black Ice (#1).  You have to understand, though, that her heroes really epitomize the "ice" in this series... they are ice cold, ruthless and often cruel.... but watching them fall for the women is so amazing.  :-)

yes I love her heroes because they are so alpha! I think out of every 10 of her books I read I might not like one of them. The only thing I will say though, sometimes her heroes but the heroines through a really really tough time and there's no groveling or anything and the girl just forgives him. That does bother me. Have you tried her house of rohan series? Amazing.
