    This my favorite in the Seven Brides series. For some reason I just adored Jefferson, although he was grumpy and hard to get along with. He was so hot to me. I like heroes who have injuries or are missing limbs, scarred, etc. He is missing an arm from the War Between The States. Jeff is quite bitter because he fought for the losing side in the war, and self-conscious about his missing arm. But boy he is so sexy that missing an arm is not a detraction (it's an added bonus for me). Violet is from the North and she is strongly anti-Southern because of her family having ties to the abolitionist movement and also due to losing a family member in the War, so there's already tension, but there was some serious chemistry and attraction between them. This drove the book and made it very enjoyable. I could read another 300 pages about Jeff because I just loved him as a hero. I liked that Violet could handle him despite him being very alpha and grumpy at that. It was also good because Jeff was stuck trying to help Violet watch his troublemaking nieces. From what I remember, the family calls them the "Terrible twins." It was pretty funny watching some of their antics, which tended to throw this unlikely couple together. Definitely a keeper in all ways. I like that they show up in later books, and in Fern, Violet makes a comment that she's been pregnant for most of their marriage (Jeff is pretty virile, as you can guess.)

    I was pleasantly surprised by how well I liked this book. It's right up there with Laurel in my favorite books. To be honest, I wasn't looking forward to reading this particular brother's story. Jeff was so unpleasant in the previous books of this series that I wondered how on earth Leigh Greenwood would manage to make a hero out of him. Well, I think Leigh succeeded. Jeff comes across as the tortured hero all right, but his actions speak more for habit than anything else—a fact pointed out by Violet on more than one occasion. I have to say that his constant hang-ups about "Yankees" got rather annoying but he did finally see the light, so I'll let it go.Violet was far more likable than I was expecting. Perhaps it was the fact that she was a little older than most heroines in romances today, but she seemed far more sensible and level-headed. Not that she didn't have spirit or a temper; she just knew how to control herself. I really liked her. :)My biggest complaint has to be the tiny, and I mean tiny, part of the story that dealt with Violet's uncle's silver mine claim. It felt like it was added as an afterthought, almost as if the publishers didn't think there was enough suspense in this story. I think it would have been a wonderful story without it. But, that's just my opinion. :)

    Esta es la novela que más me ha gustado de la serie junto con la primera, aunque tienen estilos bastante diferentes.La historia dedicada a Jeff, el veterano de guerra que perdió un brazo y que es incapaz de ser feliz y llevarse bien con la gente de su familia, era una historia a la que le tenía muchas ganas. Desde el principio sentí que él y Hen eran los personajes más curiosos y aunque la novela de Hen me gustó más que algunas de las otras, la de Jeff para mí ha subido un poco el listón, ya que la protagonista femenina me ha gustado mucho y la he encontrado a la altura de Rose. Tiene las ideas claras y sabe como tratar a Jeff, quien ha evolucionado y por fin hemos podido conocerlo un poco mejor.Por lo tanto, recomiendo la serie a quien le gusten las novelas de este género romántico western y espero que les den una oportunidad. Esta es la número 6 de la serie y me queda solo un libro para completarla. Siendo sinceros, es el que menos me interesa, pero espero que no me disguste, ya que este autor ha marcado cierto nivel con sus historias.

    Al principio no quería leerlo porque desde el primer libro Jeff me pareció bastante insoportable por las simples razones de haber perdido un brazo en la guerra entre los estados, en la forma que se expresaba de cualquiera que tuviera algún relativo con un Yanqui. Tampoco ayudó mucho lo que sus hermanos decían de él. El único que parecía entenderlo un poco mejor era George. En los siguientes libros no salió casi mucho, sólo lo mencionaban como el hermano a quien todos querían evitar.En este libro pudimos conocerlo mejor. Tenía la idea que él era una persona seria, pero en realidad es bastante ocurrente, sobre todo los medios que utiliza para conseguir lo que quiere, no son los mejores pero eso parece divertirlo. Sin embargo, lo que más me gustó fue la idea del autor de ponerle a alguien que significara todo a lo que él sentía adversidad, una mujer Yanqui.Violet resultó ser una mujer bastante inteligente y comprensible, le encontré un gran parecido a Rose (la esposa de George), una mujer bastante sensata y justa.Violet significó un gran cambio para Jeff, le hizo ver el sol literalmente. Toda esa furia que Jeff cargaba con él por haber perdido su brazo, haber sido prisionero por Yanquis, el desprecio de su padre y todavía haber perdido la guerra, todo eso lo hacía sentirse que no valía la pena, que era un hombre incompleto y cobarde que para lo único que servía era para trabajar y hacer millones.Violet le demostró que todavía existía algo de bondad en su interior, que era capaz de hacer cualquier cosa por sus hermanos a pesar de que siempre peleara con ellos y tuviera desacuerdos. También le abrió los ojos cuando el estado de salud de su cuñada se encontraba en peligro. Jeff fue a disculparse por los malos tratos y agradecerle por las buenas cosas que había hecho por su hermano, lo mismo Rose e Iris. Creo que me ha gustado, me sacó algunas risas, no tanto como la historia de Zac, pero el hecho de que Jeff pudiera dejar de sentirse acomplejado por la pérdida de su brazo me hizo sentir tranquila. Ciertamente me fastidiaba que en los libros anteriores siempre usara la guera, los Yanquis y su brazo para crear conflictos o justificarse de algo.

    Uno de los mejores libros de esta serie. El personaje de Jeff, que a lo largo de los libros anteriores nos le ponían como alguien uraño, amargado y que odiaba a todos por igual, se ha convertido en un hombre con miedos e inseguridades que, hasta que no eres capaz de "verlos" en este libro, no le das la importancia de personaje que se merece. Violet me ha gustado mucho como su mujer. Tiene todo lo que a él le falta para poder ser la pareja perfecta y ambos han tenido algunas de las escenas más "cómicas" del libro. Aunque casi al final me han dado ganas de darla algún caponcillo, se ha redimido rápido.

    Wasn't as good as I was expecting but it was still good. It had its funny moments and I liked Violets spunk. Despite his harshness I also liked Jeff as well. When it came to Jeff I continually forgot that he was missing an arm until it was mentioned...One thing I must say though is, if you are going to read the Seven Brides series I would recommend reading them in order. I failed to do that because I haven't been able to find the others yet so I read Rose (bk #1) first and Violet (bk #6) was the second one I've read and when it came to the family I was lost, having to piece together information mentioned in this book.

    If you can get past the cheesy cover this is an entertaining story about a successful but bitter southerner and a spunky northern spinster who through the twists of fate wind up living in Denver. It's not love or even like at first sight . However it is a romance novel so you know Leigh Greenwood will make it happen. And he does with humor and style.Quite a few typos though. The curse of the e book I guess.

    One of my favorites. Jeff Is just so lovable and funny. Violet is really nice too. The plot was just really entertaining and never dull. You also got too see a Lot of the family which was fun to see those charcters again.

    Una novela maravillosa, me encanta los libros de Leigh Greenwood porque no son historias tan "rosas" como la de otros autores.

    I loved this book the best....Loved how Violet was able to break the walls down from Jefferson's heart and make him feel complete. I cried.
