Meet the Brannigan brothers—seven sexy brothers who bring the heart and the heat! From bestselling authors Barbara Freethy, Ruth Cardello, Melody Anne, Christie Ridgway, Lynn Raye Harris, Roxanne St. Claire and JoAnn Ross comes a brand new contemporary romance family series: 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. You won't want to miss a single one!
Running a billion-dollar hedge fund doesn't leave a lot of time for fun in the sun, but that doesn't bother James Brannigan. After spending his youth helping his widowed father raise six younger brothers, James took a cue from his workaholic dad and channeled all his energy into business. So when he learns that his father left him a tiny winery on the Amalfi Coast, he's not thrilled. A trip to Italy is the last thing his busy schedule needs, but the winery has to go. Which means...he has to go to the winery.
Kyra Summers is the definition of a free-spirit. In her thirty years on earth, she’s never stayed in one place long enough to put down roots until she arrived in Positano and fell hard for the bold flavors, hot sun, warm people, and above all, the wonderful wine. Her job at a small, local winery is her first attempt to make a real home and the people who run the place start to become like family to her. Until the winery's new owner, a devastatingly handsome, shockingly ruthless billionaire, arrives with plans to shut it all down. Kyra's willing to do whatever it takes to save this place she loves—even if it means cozying up to a man who's harder than granite and twice as cold.
But the Italian sunshine has a way of heating things up—with every fiery exchange, they strike sparks and draw irresistibly closer together. James is stunned by his attraction to a woman unlike any he's met before, and Kyra discovers a simmering passion hidden behind his polished exterior. But passion won't be enough to change James's mind and his priorities, which is exactly why his late father sent him to Italy. Changing James is going to take a much bigger risk—it's going to take love.

James Brannigan is a billionaire who runs a hedge fund now, but when James was only 12 his mother passed away and he helped his father look after his six younger brother because his father threw himself into his business after the loss of his wife to fill the void. When James got older his father showed him the value of working hard to become successful in business and this is all James has ever done - he does not have time for romance, holidays and love.
Kyra Summers grew up with a ruthless mother, who also loved to work, work, work so Kyra always felt alone in her life, so when she came of age and had the chance she began to travel the world and amongst her travels she found a little winery in Positano and fell in love with it and the family running it so she decided to stay.
When James's dad passed away he left James the winery on the Amalfi Coast of Italy, (he also left his brothers a legacy too and they all have their own stories), with what had recently happened to some of his brothers James decides to take a trip to his winery with the intentions of selling it and making a profit because money is the bottom line or so he thought until he met the bubbly woman called Kyra.
Kyra when she meets James tells him she is there to take him out to dinner, James thinks Kyra works for the hotel and does not know why but he says yes, what James did not know due to a lack in communication from his secretary is that the dinner is at the winery because the family are eager to meet the new owner. James did not know why he said yes to dinner with this woman until he realises that he is attracted to Kyra, This is unusual because always goes for the cold polished ones and Kyra is like the fizz in your bottle of champagne - full of energy and sunshine.
When James realises the mistake that has been made he still finally agrees to go with Kyra and this is the start of finding the real man inside of the business mans body.
This is a great story with the ups and downs, twist and turns of a romance that I have become to look forward to from Roxanne St Claire, she weaves a great plot and the story draws you in. There are misunderstandings in this book and you feel for the characters, as they are well thought out and feel real to you, I just loved all of them. The story is about family values, misunderstandings, trust, love, and realisation that money is not everything. I now can not wait to check out all the other brothers stories in this series (written by different authors) because if they are written half as well as this book then they will definitely be worth it.
