Scarlet Widow by Debra Glass

Blurb: Tough…or tender? If she follows her heart, she won’t have to choose.

Molly has forever lusted for all three Barksdale brothers, but could never choose. Instead, scandal chose for her, and she married the youngest of the three. Then the brothers go to war, and Molly finds herself a grieving widow when her husband is murdered by a merciless band of Union soldiers.

Hardin Barksdale is hell-bent on avenging his brother. Greer Barksdale is honor-bound to protect his home. They both want Molly—and this time, they’re willing to share. The temptation is seductive, the passion sizzling. In harsh, post-war Tennessee, their nightly forbidden trysts wield the power to heal them all—if they can escape the twisted desires of a man bent on seeing all three of them dead.

Wow, wow and probably another wow. The opening to this book is intense and possibly one of the fastest-paced books I’ve read in a while. Hardin, the eldest of the Barksdale brothers, is described as one protectively hot man, and Greer possessive and all things many women love to read about. I love erotic romance books where the heroine can chose both of the men she falls for. Debra Glass is a real find for me this year; I find her stories enthralling and intense. Great storylines and well-developed characters are a constant within her books. Scarlet Widow will keep you hooked. I wished she’d done more on the flashbacks when the three brothers first started to really court her—just because I loved them so much.

Verdict: A keeper, well worth the time it takes to read. Excellent.
