Two things are true—there’s no sweeter bourbon than that distilled at the Darcy family’s distillery, Fire Creek… and there’s nothing more bitter than the bad blood between anyone bearing the name of Hays or Darcy. The rivalry between the two clans is as old as the town of Fontaine itself, but the latest clash threatens to tear both the families and the town apart.
Bourbon and Blood is a series with sizzling alpha males, forbidden love, and angst filled drama.
Mia Darcy plays by the rules, and her Daddy, Samuel, for better or worse has made them all. She takes care of her ailing mother, she manages PR for the family’s distillery, Fire Creek. And every day she quietly resents the fact that he stepped in and kept her from being with the one man she loved… a man who still lives there in their small town of Fontaine, Kentucky and who haunts her every minute of the day, waking or asleep.Bennett Hayes has loved Mia his whole life, and for one brief moment, when they were young and full of hope, it seemed like even the long history of bad blood between their families wasn’t enough to keep them apart. But he’d been wrong. Mia never showed the night they were supposed to run away together and when he confronted her about it, she broke his heart.But fate and circumstance throw them together again and the fire that raged between them at eighteen is even hotter now. The burn is inevitable. But there are forces at play, people on the periphery of their lives whose agenda goes far beyond just keeping them apart… they will stop at nothing to keep their secrets, even if it means murder.
Loralei Crawford is focused on running her boutique and moving on with her life after having her heart broken. Her plans are derailed when she becomes the target of unscrupulous criminals looking to get even with her brother. There’s only one man who can help her, only one man who will do whatever it takes to keep her safe… The same man who walked out on her and broke her heart.
Ciaran Darcy has more than his share of baggage. He came to Kentucky to connect with the family he has never known. Spurned by his father, his pride won’t let him reach out to his half siblings… Siblings who grew up in the same silver spoon set as Loralei. He knows he’ll never be good enough for her, but after letting her go once, he doesn’t care. She’s his and he’s holding on. He just has to keep them both alive long enough to convince her of that.
NOTE: This book is a novella and not a full length novel, but it is a complete story without a cliffhanger ending.
With a chip on his shoulder and an attitude that makes more enemies than friends, Quentin Darcy thinks he is fine flying solo, until the woman he wants gives him his walking papers. With Samuel in exile, the family business finally turning around and a new investor on the horizon, things ought to be looking up for the entire Darcy clan. But Quentin can’t shake the feeling that something is missing… and that something is Harlow Tate.
Lowey Tate has been running the local tavern she inherited from her grandfather for almost five years. Quentin is a temptation she can’t resist, but for the sake of her heart, she has to try. He’s under her skin, in her head, and if she doesn’t cut him out, he’s going to break her… She led with her heart once before and she’s sworn that no one will ever break it, or her, again.
But the past never stays buried, and when Lowey’s comes calling, it’ll be up to Quentin to keep her safe… and convince her that he wants more from her than just a good time.
Living in Central Kentucky, Seraphina spends her time talking her fiancee into adding to their menagerie of pets and shopping way more than she should.
