Product Description

Product Description

Fall in love with the New York Times & USA Today bestselling Grayson Brothers series.
If the love of your life was forbidden…what would you do?

Everything Radford Grayson wanted was in his hometown: his beloved mother and brothers, and the unscarred part of himself he’d left behind. After surviving a gruesome war, all Radford wants is to work the family sawmill and make a real home for his young daughter. But Evelyn—his brother’s fiancée—reaches into his darkness with her healing love and makes him feel whole again for the first time in years. Torn between his unexpected and forbidden love for Evelyn and a desperate need to honor and protect his brother, Radford discovers that his fiercest enemy is his own heart. The one woman he can't have is the only woman he wants.

"Remember how LaVyrle Spencer's books swept you away to another place and time while you fell madly, passionately in love with her fabulous characters? Shades of Honor [takes one] to that height of reading pleasure...fresh, vibrant characters, impossible situations, and genuine, heartfelt emotions...masterfully woven...into a passionate romance that will have you smiling as you shed a few tears."
—The Romance Readers Connection

"A perfect ten...Shades of Honor is one story that should not be missed!" —Romance Reviews Today

"...Lindstrom's superbly written, beautifully poignant debut romance has a wonderful emotional richness and depth of characterization that will appeal to readers who love authors like Lorraine Heath and Maggie Osborne. —John Charles, American Library Association.

HASH(0xa2c2645c) out of 5 stars A Beautiful Tear Jerker...and a GREAT start to an Exciting Series. Aug. 16 2013

I hope you have a box of kleenex's ready, because you will need it with this story.

I don't want to say too much about the story because I could easily give away spoilers with out meaning too. I will just say I loved all the characters especially the H/h. You feel their emotions and pain deeply. This is the first story I have read by this author and she does a really good job with character development. The story was well paced, and I couldn't put it down...I read it in one sitting.

***I want to note that I saw one reviewer say it was too graphic. Nothing against the reviewer but Im REALLY drawing a blank on how they could think that. There are only two love scenes and they are NOT descriptive at all. They are no uses of expletives in references to making love or ones body parts or in any way for that matter. A** may have been used once but never in connection with a female. {it was war talk between men} Nor do I remember any other crude remarks. You want to be able to feel some chemistry and passion that the H/h have for each other. This author does that beautifully. With that said I know its just the reviewers opinion; but I wanted to put this out there to anyone that might be on the fence about reading it. If you prefer NO love scenes this book isn't for you.***

Don't miss out out in this beautifully woven story that will bring tears to your eyes. I can't wait to read the next one in the series!

Happy Reading!!

HASH(0xa2c26684) out of 5 stars Very worthwhile reading Nov. 9 2011

I rated this book with 5 stars because it met my criteria as a book I enjoyed from start to finish. There were no areas to skip over or speed read, very well written. The author has given the reader characters with deep sense of honor and family. A post civil war story that brings in the horrors of that war, but entered into the story to enrich and add depth. This is not a book that has sensual romance as its main focus, but is there to add to story. I read a lot of historical romance, mystery romance and some of it is not worth the read even if free, but not so here.

I am not a romance novel reader. I usually will say those are the worst books to read. That being said I chose this book to read for god knows what reason. It was really well done. I could not put it down the characters came alive for me on my kindle. I am very interested in reading anything else by the writer since this story really did it for me. Normally romance novels have ridiculous amount of sex which I find completely unnecessary. This story stands on its own without the need of all that. Highly recomend!!

Shades of Honor

Going back to where you came from is sometimes the hardest thing to do. Radford Grayson does just that in this story of returning to your roots and facing your past. He brings with him his four year old motherless, fearful daughter Rebecca. Radford comes home to Fredonia, New York in 1870 after years of staying away- 1st during the war and then trying to fight his post war memories. He comes back home to his three brothers Kyle, Boyd and Duke to help run the family sawmill. Kyle harbours strong feelings against Radford walking back in to the family business and instead convinces Radford to help run the town livery owned by Evelyn Tucker( Kyles fiancee) and her ailing father. From there it's an emotional story about Radford fighting for inner peace, embracing love, forgiveness and accepting his past while moving forth with his life. Throughout the story Radford attempts to remain loyal to his family and protect and shelter his emotionally scarred daughter. The story showcases the emotional battle that all the main characters must overcome while bringing a divided family back together.

Review- I enjoyed the well written story. I appreciate that the author focused on many characters in the book and their many states of emotion and turmoil. It was an easy read for an adult based audience with very mild intimate personal scenes. The book ended well and although the ending was predictable, enjoyable none the less.

come see this book and more @ [...]

HASH(0xa2c2699c) out of 5 stars Surprise Surprise! May 11 2012

I don't ever write reviews on any of the books I have read, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity this time. For a free read, this story is excellent. I really didn't think I'd like it and told myself I would read the first chapter, but then I was hooked. So hooked that in 3 days I finish this one and the other 3 in the series. I needed to relax and unwind and I did, reading some amazing stories about 4 brothers and their adventures. Honestly I would highly recommend them, give it a shot, I promise you that you will truly enjoy it. I did notice some typos and errors but nothing that took away from the books.
I would rank the 4 the following:
1. Shades of honor
2. The longing
3.Lips that touch Mine
4. Kissing in the dark
