A woman with no one to rely on finds a man she can trust with her heart in the first “flawlessly written”(Chicago Tribune) western romance in Kaki Warner’s Blood Rose Trilogy... Jessica Thornton is a long way from her native England. An authoress and milliner, she carries the weight of a scandalous secret—a horrible shame that has brought her to the West on a desperate search for the only family she can trust: her brother. No one prepared Jessica for the heat and the hardships—or for a man like Brady Wilkins. Despite the rancher’s rough-hewn appearance and her own misgivings, Jessica must put her life in Brady’s hands after their stagecoach crashes. Soon, she begins to see the man behind the callused hands and caustic wit—a man strong enough to carve out a home in the wilderness and passionate enough to restore Jessica’s faith in herself...

Loved it! This is craftwomanship at its finest which resulted in a powerful story of a ranching family in post Civil War western USA. The family dynamics was fluid, believable, deeply moving and the dialog was magic. The challenges facing western pioneers were truly unbelievably difficult and cannot be over played because the reality was extreme. The different personalities among the brothers made the dimension deeper. The back and forth romance and relationship building made this a very special and unique story. I can see why the author has won awards. Highly recommend.

Kaki Warner has a writing style that I really enjoy. She injects humor and has well defined characters. Her heros are sexy and her heroines (generally) are strong, independent types. She sets scenes beautifully and colorfully. She is able to wring some very tender emotions out of her characters. It is for this reason that I recommend this book.

Now... I realize bad things happened in the old west and life was hard. However, the external conflicts and villans are so over the top that it starts making me want to skim. Some of it just goes on and on. The bad guys are crazy evil. Which is fine, but it's too much. Having read the Mail Order Brides series first I have found that she tries to cram every kind of evil that exists into her villans - rapes, murders, crazy, you name it - they are all very similar throughout her books. Ms. Warner has a tendency to dwell on the bad stuff as a way to bring love and caring to her hero and heroine. I wish she would tone this down by half.

I will read the next in this series.
The H & H in this book are smart, quick-witted, and humorous, and their relationship develops over time in a way that feels real and emotionally satisfying. I liked the side characters as well, and Warner does a good job of giving individuality to what are, after all, stock romance characters (the crusty rancher, the starchy English lady). She also gives you a great sense of the setting, both in New Mexico and in England - Warner has a real gift for description. My major problem was that she includes a lot of graphic violence, which really disturbed me; while some readers have no trouble sliding over violence, or perhaps even find it exciting, I read romance to escape pain and suffering, so I'm not sure I can face another book by Warner, despite how much I enjoyed many aspects of this one.
Her stories and characters are intense, strong, and well developed. I love the questions her stories ask, but I get angry sometimes at how long the soul mates are kept apart and how the resolution doesn't occur until the very last pages. Her heroes and heroines have such intensity w/ each other and its a let down to only see them happy together for a few sentences at the end of the story. Also, her love scenes need more. The connections are very intense and the love scenes are too subdued for the amount of chemistry between the hero and heroine. She has graphic language and graphic violence, but very mild love scenes. Still, the stories themselves are great and that makes them worth reading....
Kaki Warner is a fabulous author. So far, ALL of the books that I've read of hers has left me wanting to continue to know more of her characters and their lives. As I complete each book, I ponder on the characters with a sense of warmth and happiness. Sounds strange, but Warner has a way of making the characters come to life and the story suspenseful and endearing. I've become a fan and will continue to look for her writings in the future. .
these books by Kaki were awesome westerns in modern day I didnt think at first I would like her writing because I had never read anything of hers but the cover and storyline peaked my interest and I am glad I did indulge in them ... very good books I think there are 4 in this series of the Blood rose books even tho it says trilogy
This is the first in Warner's Blood Rose trilogy, named after the roses that surround the RosaRoja ranch owned by the three Wilkins brothers in New Mexico Territory. Set in 1869, it tells the story of Jessica Thornton, on the run from her home in England and the brother-in-law who raped her and left her pregnant with his child. She is trying to get to the only man she trusts, her brother. At a stagecoach stop she encounters Brady Wilkins, oldest of the Wilkins brothers. He's just taken a spill from his horse and looks beat up, and to Jessica, talks rough. But she does love his blue eyes, which appear to her like pieces of sky. Brady finds the Englishwoman's strange ways funny (their exchange and Jessica's thinking are very funny)--and he hasn't laughed in years. And then came the stagecoach crash...

Both Jessica and Brady have scars; and each has sacrificed their own happiness for others. Both are bound by duty, and though from different worlds, inexplicably drawn to each other. I loved their exchanges, her dry wit, his suggestive banter. Warner writes beautifully, expressively ("Like a blind foal on a short lead, Brady knew he would stumble along wherever he was led--as long as she was on the other end of the rope.")

In this and the two stories that follow, there's lots of action, a despicable nasty villain and a fair amount of violence (sometimes told through flashbacks that bring the horrible to mind). There's the budding romance between two unlikely people to add sweetness, but this is no sweet love story, for it's a tale of vengeance. Warner's style is unusual, complex and detailed. She gives you the gory details when it comes naturally to the story. She slowly develops her characters like a stew simmering all day on the stove. The three brothers and their interactions are priceless and very well written. This first book also has some great humor early on as Jessica, a very proper British lady, encounters Brady, the rough American rancher and domineering older brother.

Most of the three stories take place on the sprawling RosaRoja ranch. Warner paints vivid word pictures of the historic setting and the environs that give you a sense of the rugged, open West and make you feel like you've lived there.

Warner's stories are a bit different, her style unusual. And while there are some very tender moments between the hero and heroine, the love scenes are abbreviated. That was ok with me.

You'll have to be patient as each story unfolds, but I think you'll find the wait is worth it. All the stories are related with several common characters, including the brothers. Warner does a great job of tying up all the loose ends in the last book, CHASING THE SUN.

Here's the Blood Rose trilogy--do read them in order:

PIECES OF SKY (RITA winner for Best First Book) - Jessica and Brady
OPEN COUNTRY (RITA finalist) - Molly and Hank
CHASING THE SUN - Daisy and Jack
went back to read the beginning - good.
