A Pride of Brothers: Aiden is a light romantic suspense and one which I had been so excited to get my hands on prior to release. My expectations were huge because I couldn’t get enough of Rick (book one). Could Peggy live up to the hype? The answer is a resounding YES! Peggy Jaeger is one of the best romance authors out there and she’s quickly building a strong reputation in the romantic suspense genre as well. From the start, both Aiden and Lexi piqued my interest. Lexi is a smart, beautiful woman and I connected with her instantly. In the same vein, I also connected with Aiden. The plot moves at a good pace, with equal parts romance and suspense. The suspense subplot was so well-conceived, I forgot I was reading fiction. My pulse accelerated the more I read. By the time I got to the end, I was an emotional wreck. Yes, I was that invested in the story and the characters. The romance was sublime, as it always is when it comes to Peggy Jaeger. The attraction was immediate, but the romance arc was slow and satisfying. I enjoyed the fact the couple didn’t hop right into bed. The relationship is built naturally like it is in real life. If you love romantic suspense, pick up A Pride of Brothers: Aiden. If you’re a fan of slow-burning romance with suspense thrown in, you’ll love A Pride of Brothers: Aiden. Fans of J.D. Robb will thoroughly enjoy A Pride of Brothers: Aiden. Highly recommend!

I'm a #contemporaryromance writer who writes #RomComs about strong women, the families who support them, and the men who can’t live without them. If I can make you cry on one page and bring you out of tears rolling with laughter the next, I've done my job as a writer!
#Family and #food play huge roles in my stories because I believe there is nothing that holds a family structure together like sharing a meal…or two…or ten. Dotted with humor and characters that are as real as they are loving, I bring all topics of daily life into my stories: life, death, sibling rivalry, illness and the desire for everyone to find their own happily ever after. Growing up the only child of divorced parents I longed for sisters, brothers and a family that vowed to stick together no matter what came their way. Through my books, I've created the families I wanted as that lonely child.
