  • Maggie Shayne

    I live in the teeny, tiny town of Taylor, NY, Alliteration Alert though my mailing address is Cincinnatus, my telephone exchange is Truxton and I pay taxes and vote in Cuyler All of these are at least in the same rural county in the southern hills of New York State Cortland County There are cattle than people here The nearest big cities are Syracuse and Binghamton and they are an hour away, in different directions, and not really all that big by most standards, though they both seem humongous to me I look out my window to see rolling, green, thickly forested hills, wildflower laden meadows and wide open blue, blue skies My road is barely paved The nearest neighboring place is a 700 acre dairy farm.My house is a big, century old farmhouse I moved in here after my divorce in 2006 Just a little over a year later, the house, which I had named, SERENITY, burned It was 99% gutted, and I lost my two dogs, Sally, an 11 year old great Dane, and Wrinkles, my 14 year old, blind bulldog This was the culmination of my Dark Night of the soul, which had seemed to hit me all at once in 2006 2007 My mother died that year, after a 14 month battle with pancreatic cancer She was only 60 The youngest of my five daughters had left home that same year, and while that s not a tragedy at all, it felt like one to me Then came the divorce And finally there was the fire it seemed my darkest night wasn t quite finished with me after all I had lost almost everything before that point, and as I poked through the wet ashes and soot the next day, I realized that I had now been stripped all the way to the bone.No better time to start over And no, I didn t come to that realization that day there were a few days of wallowing in pity first, particularly the day after the fire, when I hit a deer and smashed up my car, which I was practically living in That s when I started to laugh Just sat on the side of the road as the deer bounded, uninjured and carefree, out of sight, and laughed It was just too ridiculous at that point, to do anything else And from there, I picked myself up, and brushed myself off, and said, okay, there s only one way to go from here Forward And that s what I did There I was at the age of harrurmphemmph, living in my one, mostly undamaged remaining room, with a dorm sized mini fridge, a futon, a TV, my cat nine lives and a laptop And not much else Though thank goodness the room that survived the fire, was a room that had its own attached bathroom Since then I have rebuilt my beloved home, which really has become my haven, my Serenity I share it now with my fianc , Lance, and we have accumulated quite the little family together Little being a relative term We have a pair of English Mastiffs, Dozer and Daisy, who weigh 203 pounds and 208 pounds respectively, and a little pudgy English Bulldog named Niblet, who is bigger than both of them, inside her mind We also have the aforementioned cat, Glorificus Glory for short, who adores her canine pups and keeps them firmly in line And we ve acquired a pair of stray cats as well, a mother and son, Luna Lulu for short and Butters aka Buddy Lulu showed up pregnant during a lunar eclipse, had a litter, and vanished again We found homes for all the kittens except one Butters We got him fixed and kept him A few months later, Lulu returned, again expecting This litter was born on the Monster Moon Again, all the kittens were spayed and neutered and placed in homes, and this time we got Lulu to the vet in time to spay her before the cycle could repeat Glory is not amused.She has a story of her own, my old Glory cat, having been with me before the Dark Times descended, she went through it all with me, moved with me, survived the fire, and remains with me still She s tolerating the newcomers Barely.My partner is an artist, a mechanic, a welder and an inventor, and the rumors are true, he is much younger than I

Hurry grab it now!Marcus Brand doesn't celebrate Christmas, not since his family was murdered in front of him during the holiday. The orphaned child was taken in by the mysterious billionaire Caine. On his death bed, Caine left everything to Marcus. Everything including his secret identity - The Guardian!Silver City's Guardian is a mysterious man who s [...]


  • Marcus & Caseych a great pair, and I love the reunion of long-lost family! Enjoyed the back story of Marcus, a "real-life" hero! And Casey's way of getting his attention to help her & her sister was ingenious!


  • Only 2-3 stars because the writing & punctuation was terrible! What is up with her use of colons & lack of periods, which were the worse. But also some really weird sentences which you read and say, "Huh?"Disappointed from the beginning. Does read like her other books. Seems sloppy. And already at 16%, she uses the name Del & on the 3rd time (same page) spells it Dell!! And a lot of punctuation is missing. Feels like an early draft.I wouldn't be reading this if not for the rest of th [...]


  • Marcus and Casey fall into a bound that is rare with out even looking for it. Casey is looking to protect her sister and Marcus is just looking to continue his adopted fathers legacy. They each find so much more than that. Great reading with action, passion, and surprises. Loved it.Look forward to more Brands


  • After witnessing his family being murdered, Marcus spends the next 22 years trying to block it out Living a solitary life, never letting people close, for the fear of losing them That is until he's asked for help by Casey, her sisters life is in danger and Marcus decides to help sparks fly and tears fall I loved every minute of this book!!


  • Truly Awesome And Very Heart TouchingThis was so darn good and it moved like lighting speed.The story is wonderful heart touching and just plane ole sweet I lived reading this book it really touched my heart even brought a tear to my eyes. Maggie Shayn is one great story teller if it has her it is going to an all nighter book for sure


  • This book was like a superhero book! Very different from the Brand books! Fun though! Book 5 in the Brand series.This is the story of Marcus Brand (a cousin of The Texas Brands) and his HEA Casey. They live in Dallas in Casey's family house. Casey is a reporter and Marcus works behind the scenes for police departments and government agencies.


  • The Guardian, who is he?I really did enjoy this story, although I missed all the antics of the Branch family. This was more of a mystery, but very good story. Lots of twists, with less romance.


  • Boring bookWithin the first 6 pages you already knew what the entire book was about. You knew what the premise was and how it would end. There were no surprises I was shocked that Maggie Shayne would write such a book as I have been a fan of hers for many, many years.


  • A tear jerkerLoved this story even though I cried through most of it. This is one of the best series I've ever read and I can't wait to read the rest.



  • a trifle melodramatic. lone wolf fights for victims of crime finds not only a long lost sister, the man who murdered his parents but the love of his life.


  • Amazing seriesI read it in 15 hours I love series that involve families and romance. I love all of maggie shayne's books


  • danger! excitement! love! this was fun! great ending! mystery, fear, sadness, loss, love, all great aspects to this story.


  • This one was fairly enjoyable, for all that it was about people we didn't even know existed until this book, so it didn't really fit into the series the same way.
