The books in this series are all stand alone. They are all good and this one is outstanding. It held me from the first page to the end - 4:a.m. It is just too good to stop, something is too exciting on the next page.
It is the story of Sean, the lost Sheenan brother. He is a terrific hero. All of these brothers have DNA from their mother's Indian tribe. They are all big, strong guys. Sean is fighting a lot of inner demons and he has to find out about his past. There is mystery but it is more like secrets. Lots of secrets.
The love interest is Brock's wife's sister. They are keeping it all in the family. Brock's story is one of my favorite books. But anyway, about the heroine. She is something of a free spirit, in town teaching to get a little pocket money to head back to Europe. She is a smart, beautiful, strong female lead. You really like the way she stands up for herself. They get their HEA but was not an easy path.
A great read, I definitely recommend it. I loved it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is just my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
"The Lost Sheenan's Bride," Taming of the Sheenans Book six. Jet and Shane's story. This can be read as a standalone however I recommend that you read all the books in the series. It will make this novel an even better read. I have been so in love with this series and we're now on book six, sadly the last in the Sheenan's series. However, Jane Porter has teased with a spinoff which I will impatiently wait for.
Here we have the story of Jet and Shane. Jet is the younger sister to Harley, who is married to the eldest Sheenan brother, Brock. (Brock's is a Christmas story and the first in the series) Harley invites Jet to Marietta, Montana and gets Jet a teaching job. Jet accepts the teaching position and looks forward to a change in scenery. She is currently getting over a broken heart so she is looking forward to the change. The last thing Jet expects is to be intrigued by Shane, a man who just so happens to have alienated her inlaws, the Sheenan brothers. But Jet sees something behind Shane's eyes that reveals a deep sadness. She believes he is not the bad guy her brothers-in-law claim him to be. Jet is smart and perceptive so she can see that Shane has secrets. But does that make him a bad guy?
Shane Swan, a successful author, came to Montana several months prior to work on his latest novel and he is currently renting the house on the Sheenan ranch. Everything is fine until Cormac Sheenan (Cormac's book is also a Christmas theme and is book five in the series) finds something about Shane and the novel he is writing that he does not like or approve of. The Sheenans become angry and want Shane gone. In addition to that, they want Jet to stay away from him as well. Jet doesn't like being told what to do but she is concerned about family loyalty. What should she do?
I was pleased that Jet listened to her heart. She was careful when spending time with Shane even though she really liked him. Shane adored Jet and didn't want to cause problems for her with her family but he needed answers and he refused to leave. Things become a little tense and angsty and there is a small element of suspense going on as well. I don't want to spoil anything so I won't say anything else about that. However I will say that I was impatient and anxious to see how this story ended. I tried to guess but I wasn't sure. Because of that, this was a page-turner for me. That being said, this was a beautiful story of trust and love and a HEA for everyone involved! I look forward to the spinoff featuring the Douglas family.
If you’ve read the Taming of the Sheenans series. or really any of the Marietta, Montana books, you know that the Sheenan family is full of pride, stubbornness and loyalty to the family. They are a tight knot force to be reckoned with. And I have loved and completely enjoyed each and every story along the way to this one – the final Sheenan story. Oh, maybe-hopefully, we’ll get a holiday reunion story one day and catch up on the family. Heck, maybe someday we’ll read about their kid’s romances. But for now this is it.
And I have to say with utter honesty and heartfelt thanks to Ms Porter – Thank you. You’ve saved the absolute best for last.
Jet and Shane’s love story is beautiful and touching. But they aren’t the true focus of this story. Family is. Finding out the truth is. Making things right is.
If you can read The Lost Sheenan’s Bride without crying then you, my friend, are a much stronger person than I am. And that’s all I’m going to say.
If you’ve followed the series, then you need to experience this totally for yourself. You don’t need my words, you need their story.
I love this series! Love the characters the author has created. This one was no exception. Jet and Shane were a perfect match. Although Jet was recovering from a broken heart, it was Shane who had some major issues going on. Having discovered he truly is a Sheenan through DNA testing, he comes to Marietta under the guise of writing a book about a massacre that took place there years ago. Five members of the same family were murdered. A family that has ties to the Sheenans. As a result, none of the Sheenans want Shane around, believing he's only going to exploit their tragedy for money. So he comes up with the idea of getting close to Jet whose sister Harley just happens to be married to Brock Sheenan. What he doesn't count on is falling for her. All he wants is the truth about his past. Why was he raised by his grandmother? Why did his mother lie when she promised to come back for him then never did? Why does he have memories of her visiting and bringing her other children with her, only to leave him behind repeatedly? And how in the world is he going to get answers to these questions without hurting Jet in the process? The Sheenans have already made it clear they don't want him hanging around her.
This was a wonderfully sweet love story with a touch of mystery thrown in. The small town setting meant revisiting characters from the previous books and provided a good backdrop for any future books that might take place there. I loved the romance between Shane and Jet, the way Shane insisted they take their time while getting to know one another. The author's descriptions of each scene made it seem as though you were in the room with them, feeling what they were feeling at the time. I also liked the interaction between Shane and his siblings. One minute they wanted to pound him into the ground, the next they were welcoming him to the family. Just an all around feel good story that only whet my appetite for more.
This is book six in Jane Porter's Sheenan books. I was anxiously waiting for this story.
I was prepared for it or so I thought. I LOVED this story so much! I think I felt every emotion I could possibly feel as I read it: I cried, I laughed, I sighed and I cheered.
This is Jet and Shane's story, and what a story it is. I do not want to give away any of the juicy bits. But I will say that both Jet and Shane tugged at my heart in different ways and I wanted them to find their HEA! Shane had a rough life including confusion with his name and how he was raised and who he belonged to. Jet, is finding out who she is and recovering from a betrayal. Shane is torn between wanting to use Jet to help get the answers he is desperately seeking and wanting to protect her.
This story also lets us visit with some of the other Sheenans and put an end to a mystery that has been a thread throughout some of the books and possibly open the way for a new series!
I wanted to treasure every word as it is supposed to be the last one in the series, and I truly was not ready to let this family go. I can only say that I hope there will be more books somewhere down the line. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series.
Jet Diekerhof is teaching in a one room school in Paradise Valley. Her sister, Harley helped her get the job. She loves teaching. It's helping her recover from a broken heart. When she meets, Shane, the attraction is immediate and powerful. He's a well respected author who is in town to write a book on the Douglas Family massacre. This makes him an enemy of the powerful Sheenan Family, but Jet can turn her back on him. There is definitely trouble in Paradise! Jet is smart, sassy and caring. She's having a difficult time trying to keep everyone happy. Harley is married to Brock Sheenan and wants Jet to support the family and ignore her feelings. On the other hand, Shane is there under false pretenses. He has a very personal interest in the family. What will happen when he reveals the truth? I liked Shane. He's had a hard life and the pain has made him a loner who keeps his emotions well hidden, except with Jet. I love the rugged Montana setting and the continuing mystery of who was responsible for the murder of the Douglas family. Jane Porter has written a wonderful story filled with passion and pain. The Sheenans make their presence felt as they always do, but the romance between Jet and Shane is powerful and pulled me into their story. I'm sad to see this series end. I feel as if I was part of this family. However, I'm looking forward to The Douglas Ranch of Paradise Valley.
This may not be the most coherent review that I have posted since it' 2:30 am and I have just finished this book. I actually went to bed at 11 pm but got back up to finish it. It just wouldn't let me go. I will never start one of Jane Porter's books this late again. This is the final book in the series (they can all be read as stand alone books) and it is my favorite. Shane Finley has rented the Sheenan homestead to write a book about a gruesome murder that took place on a neighboring ranch 18 years ago. The murder was never solved. A romance develops between Shane and Jet, the sister-in-law of Brock Sheenan. There are two mysteries here. One is the murder and the other is the truth about Shane's parentage. Both stories are intriguing and well done. The romance is perfect. I am recommending this book to my friends.
There are no language or sexual situations to offend any readers
Shane Swan has come to Marietta to work on his book. He told Dillon Sheenan it was to write a book about their town, however, he had other motives behind his moving to Montana. Shane is there to observe and get closer to the Sheenan brothers.
Jet Diekerhof has taken a long term subbing position and now teaching at the one room school house in Paradise Valley. When Shane decides to share the table at the coffee shop with her, she can’t believe her luck. After talking with him, she finally realizes she is sharing a table with her favorite author and he just asked her to dinner. Will Jet and Shane hit it off or does he have other motives for wanting to be with her?
A fabulous ending to an outstanding series! I loved every moment of this book. The moment Brock says “Welcome home Shane. I’ve missed you” brought me to tears, happy tears of course! If you haven’t read the Sheenan series yet, I strongly urge you to do so!
I preordered this one, excited for another story in the Taming of the Sheenan stories, this family full of men with strong personalities and their even stronger family ties. I hate to see the series end but Shane and Jet's story is a great finish to the series. One of the reasons I love Jane Porter's books, is because the characters always ring true and feel real, and it is the same here. The tension and the emotion all ring true, and I wanted to cry for the obvious pain Shane felt but had a hard time sharing. I also appreciate the little tidbits throughout that add more to all the stories that came before this one. I highly recommend it for fans of the Jane Porter and the Sheenan series. I hope we see an update or two down the road, it'd be fun to see them at Christmas time in the kitchen of the Sheenan ranch.
As much as I enjoy reading Jane Porter’s books, the Sheehan series seemed to follow a “number of pages” format: at a certain point, the plot would speed up, tidy up its loose ends, and come to a swift conclusion.
This story was allowed to develop more slowly and, although it still had about the same number of pages as the others, I had a more satisfying feeling of complete character development. My only comment would be I was hoping that a Shane and Jet would solve the Douglas murders. The explanation didn’t really make sense, considering the scope and violence of the crime.
