Editorial Reviews Review

An Amazon Best Book of August 2015: A modern-day Southern family that’s far too rich for its own good, every year the Baldwines cement their titanic social status with a fancy Derby brunch at their estate for 700 of their closest friends. Just before this year’s event, the return of prodigal son Lane from self-inflicted exile sets off a chain of events that yanks family skeletons out of the closet and thrusts each family member out of his or her familiar orbit, spinning them toward disaster.

A Yankee transplanted to the south, J. R. Ward describes wealthy southerners and their eccentric habits with the clear-eyed affection that only an outsider brings, evoking memories of John Berendt’s spot-on details in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. With The Bourbon Kings, Ward has stepped out of her own orbit of penning bestselling paranormal romances, and readers will be glad they’ve taken this journey with her. Secret babies, shocking affairs, fiery racehorses, battling bourbon empires, a despicable family patriarch, and an unfortunately-timed suicide (or is it murder?) are just a few of the wild cards Ward throws into the mix, delivering mayhem among the moneyed crowd in this tremendously fun read. – Adrian Liang


“Get ready for summer’s most sinful indulgence. The drama never stops in this tale of family secrets, lost love found, rivalries, delightfully nasty villains, and deliciously appealing heroes. The clothes, the whiskey, and the gorgeous Kentucky backdrop will sweep you away. The privileged and the downtrodden never had it so good. Put on your derby hat and join in the fun.”—New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs
“Breathless fun! J. R. Ward moves her trademark dark and sexy from the world of warrior vampires to the halls of the Kentucky elite, where the family members’ claws are just as sharp and the consequences just as deadly. I couldn’t stop turning the pages!”—New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner
“The setting is 80's TV soap opera Dallas meets Downton Abbey...This is high drama, and it’s mesmerizing.”—Fresh Fiction
“I want my Bourbon in bed! J. R. Ward delivers a sweeping saga where family roots run deep and passion sizzles hotter than a Kentucky summer. Potent and heady, one taste just isn’t enough.”—New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter
“The drama and dark secrets behind the Bradford family’s empire propel this irresistible story of high-society scandal . . . a read that’s rich, smooth, and satisfying as a glass of Kentucky bourbon.”—New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips

“With more devious characters than DynastyThe Bourbon Kings is juicy soap opera at its finest.”—The Philadelphia Enquirer

“Soapy elements abound in this Dynastyesque tale, from lavish wealth to feuds, dirty secrets, and forbidden love…Ward is a master of pacing and world building, and readers will love that the cliff-hanger ending guarantees at least a second helping of the Bradfords.”—Booklist (starred review)
