Falls Short Oct. 21 2014
By Jamers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really struggled with this book. I loved the Brand series, until I got to this book. The female character was extremely unlikeable. I thought there would be a point, where she stopped being a snotty, entitled, ungrateful wretch, but there never really was for me. It felt like the story was forced. The other Brand brother's stories all seemed to fall together, this one seems like it was a scramble to make Elliot's story fit. It was hard to get my brain to go from stories that all flowed together, to this random bit of historical sci-fi.

Not to mention the end got extremely cheesy, I felt like I had gone from the wild, but sweet, Brand's to the over the top corny Full House family.

Love Maggie Shayne's books, all but this one.

Love a man, love his family? Sept. 7 2014
By Karen, RN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Esmeralda Montoya returns to her father's side as he is on his deathbed, the year 1881, where he gives her a mystical skull pendant said to have magical properties. She heads to the town of Quinn, Texas to find that the Brand family has stolen her father's ranch and no where to turn. She ends up killing one Brand as he attempts to rape her and ends up on the gallows to hang for the deed, only to then be rescued by the man she thought she killed! Enter Elliot Brand, youngest brother in the Brand family, only he is not from the year 1881 but 1993! Elliot is on his way to the university to deliver a Mayan artifact his sister-in-law Taylor found but his curiosity gets the better of him and he just has to see the artifact for himself. As he lookers at a quarts skull, he notices writing on back and tries to read it, sees a bright flash of light and finds himself in the past as a hanging is taking place. He rescues the lovely Mexican woman, who just happens to be wearing that same quartz skull! He grabs a gun from someone and takes the lady and leaves running from the frown of bad men giving chase. He convinces Esmeralda to read read the inscription on the skull as he is facing down his evil ancesters gunning for them, bright flash and he is back beside his wrecked truck facing his real brothers back in the future!! Sound interesting? Read the book to see what this next chapter in the Brand family has inshore for you!

Esmeralda should have stayed in the Old West Jan. 18 2008

I don't mind a time travel book. Usually I enjoy them. And in this one the time travel wasn't the problem. Esmeralda was. She was conniving, two faced, dense, dishonorable and dumb.

Because the Brands in 1881 were bad people she assumed the Brands in 1999 are bad also in spite of mountains of evidence to the contrary. Esmeralda's plan is to seduce Elliott, get pregnant so he will marry her, divorce him and get part of the ranch as community property.

When Elliot DOES wants to marry her and says so in front of his entire family she yells at him and turns him down.

When Elliot is injured she admits exactly what she had planned to do, that she lied and schemed but she couldn't go through with it because he is the sweetest man she's ever known. 15 pages later she tells him that she changed her mind because she's too decent of a woman and that he deserved far worse than what she tried to do to him.

Esmeralda thinks, "First he told her didn't expect sex as a payment, and then he made love to her anyway." Apparently she hasn't caught on that having sex and making love are two different things

Also have these Brands never heard of "safe sex" or "birth control"?

I've never given a book in the Brand series such a low rating and considering how many books were in this series I suppose one had to be bad.

On the fence with this one. May 8 2014
By CINDY F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I didn't mind the time travel bit so much, as I detested Esmerelda and what she stood for. Sure she was handed a dirty deal back in the 1880's era, but why try to take it out on innocent people of the future who had absolutely nothing to do with it. She was just too wishy washy to me. She'd say one thing one minute, then she'd do or say something completely opposite a few days later.

The whole thing just confused me. Not the best addition to this series, because I found all of them to be so believable, whereas this one was just the opposite.

As always, another great. May 2 2005
By J COFFMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bk. 7-Texas Brand series. As always a welcome addition to this series.

Elliot is delivering an ancient artifact to the university when he is involved in an accident. Somehow he is sent back in time 120 years. He saves Esmerelda from a hanging by his ancestors & travels forward 120 years with Esmerelda.

I really enjoyed this book. There is one very funny part after they arrive back that has me in stitches.

Next (bk. 8) is Angel meets the badman about Sara & Jake.
