Mallory Westin was born into power. But when her family's quest for more power caused her a broken heart, she turned her back on the only life she ever knew. Now a successful owner of a security firm, she's determined to forge her own path. But sometimes one's past isn't so easy to leave behind. Mallory has to take control of the power she was destined for after discovering her politician father is involved in an assassination plot. Things only get worse as the one man she's always loved becomes a target as well.
Reid Simpson had loved Mallory since they were teenagers. Then one night changed everything as she suddenly broke his heart. For years, he escaped the pain as he built his resort and casino empire. He pushed her from his mind, if not his heart. As Reid encounters increasing danger, he finds that Mallory is the one by his side trying to protect him.
Can Reid and Mallory work together to uncover the assassination plot while avoiding the pain of the past? Or will they discover that love has a way of conquering all?

Another fantastic book by Kathleen Brooks. Women of Power series rocks.
Mallory Westin was not born into the Simpson family but they treat her like family. She was born into a family of power. She didn't want anything from them just their love but she didn't receive that.
Reid Simpson has a family that loves him and they always just want him to be happy. He is not happy. He just wants the women who told him that she doesn't love him anymore after their summer together.
Can Mallory get her family to love her?
Can Reid get Mallory to love him?
I would recommend Kathleen Brooks books.
"Destined for power"
Oh my gosh.... all the Power books have been great but Mallory and Reed's story was the best. I never figured out the "who done it" until right before you revealed it. I love learning the back story behind Reed and Mallory. Shirley was a hoot as always! I especially loved how you gave every important character their happy ending! It was perfect. Thank you!
Have you ever thought about putting this series on Hallmark movie and mystery channel? You would have to make it a G rated version but your characters and story line would be perfect! I would love to see your book come to life! Thanks again. Great book. Great series.
Finally, Amy McFadden rocks!!!!!!!!! She makes every story come to life. Please do more! She is the best!!!!!!!!
"The best of the series!"
This was my favorite book of the series, though I loved them all. There wasn't a dull moment at any time. Lots of action, adventure and romance with plenty of laughter added in. What made it even better were the cameo's by some of my favorite Blue Grass characters. I don't think Kathleen Brooks could write a bad book if she tried especially if she continues to write about such strong women.
"Good ending to the series"
I have enjoyed reading these books. They are well narrated by Amy McFadden. The series is worth it just for Shirley. She's a hoot!
"Perfect ending to a great series.."
WOW! This 4th book was exciting from the very beginning: spying, murder, attempted murder, a plane crash, plots for an assassination, a car chase, without any brakes, the FBI and the CIA, a lot of love and a little bit of sex. What more could you ask for?
I knew I’d like Mallory and Reid’s story the best, but I really did enjoy ever book in this series.
I didn’t like Mallory’s father or Ambrose or Liam or Black and Jonak. They were all great bad guys, vicious, evil killers or just plain old jerks.
I enjoyed this series. Everyone got their own HEA, including Shirley, who was my favorite character, and Reid’s mother, Margaret.
As usual, no sexual tension but nice sex scenes.
As to the narrator: As usual, Ms. McFadden did a wonderful job. I love her narrations.
"Great Series! Great Story! Great Narration!"
I really enjoyed this entire series. Book one started out a bit iffy but I am glad I kept with it because every story got better and better. I loved Mallory, I always liked her in every book and just knew hers would be so good. And it was. Mallory was beautiful, smart, strong, and a bad a$$! Loved her. And Reid, was great too. Handsome, strong, smart, rich and so in love with Mallory. They had some great chemistry together and a couple of hot and steamy nicely written sex scenes.
Loved the story line and plot. Assassination attempts, undercover CIA and romance. What's not to love!. The story flowed so well and was easy to follow along. There is a lot of dialogue through out the entire book. It was great.
This last book really was a great ending to a great series. it wrapped up the series perfectly. Well done Kathleen Brooks!
As for the narration. Amy McFadden gets better and better. The men sound like men, everyone gets their own distinct voice, she has a great reading voice and she reads with emotion as called for, whispering, yelling etc..
I totally recommend this series.
This has become one of my favorite series!! I can't wait to read more by Kathleen brooks:)
