Slow Burn: A Madaris Novel by Brenda Jackson ISBN: 9780312940492
ONCE YOU FIND Everything in accountant Skye Barclay's life is fitting smoothly into place until she makes the startling discovery that she was adopted. Not only does she learn that her birth mother has died, but now Skye finds out that she has a biological brother: Vincent. Skye wants to track him down, and her parents, as well as her fiance Wayne refuse to support or accept her. And Wayne, takes it a step further by abruptly ending their engagement.
A LOVE THAT'S TRUE
Skye's search for Vincent leads her to his adoptive parents, Dr. Justin and Lorren Madaris, and, lo and behold, Slade Madaris--Vincent's tall, dark, and sexy cousin. Slade is by far the most compelling man Skye has ever met, but she isn't ready to get involved so soon after Wayne's rejection...not even when Slade offers her a job so she can stay in town and get to know her brother better.
MAKE IT LAST...FOREVER.Slade is a shrewd businessman, but hiring Skye is one of the riskiest moves he's ever made. Soon their mutual attraction explodes into a steamy summer affair. When Wayne shows up in town, determined to win Skye back, Slade sets out to prove that he and Skye are meant to be together. Because a Madaris man never walks away from a challenge--especially when true love is on the line...

Day 3 and the read is getting better, but I am bothered by Skye and Slade's instant, immediate, unbelievable attraction to each other. Makes me wonder if getting into bed will be more important that developing a relationship.
Although there are elements with the beginning I am not in favor of (mainly the character names) I would like to read the rest of the novel to find out what happens to them all. I am a fan of Breand Jackson and I enjoyed all of her novels thus far, I'm sure she won't let us down with this story.
Good read. Although there were some spellling errors, I took it as more due to proofing than anything else. I read the entire novel. If you like love stories, this one is a great start to a dynasty for Brenda Jackson the likes of the Collins' of the 80's and 90's.
