Ryan Steel is known in Snow Creek as the handsomest Steel brother with the most jovial personality. Now that his busy grape harvest and winemaking season is over, he’s happy to spend time with his family and help his brothers, Talon and Jonah, celebrate their impending nuptials. The Steels are taking a well-deserved break from the conspiracy surrounding them…until an unlikely woman and a long-buried secret shatter Ryan’s world. 
Detective Ruby Lee has been on her own since she was fifteen. When her past collides with the Steel family’s mysteries, she’s determined to find the truth. She has her own issues, and she’s not looking for a relationship, despite her all-consuming attraction to Ryan Steel. The gorgeous dark-haired man gets under her skin anyway…and he needs her. 
Together they explore both of their histories, but those pasts could cost them a future.





Shattered is a good addition to the Steel Brothers Saga series. It sucked me in from the very beginning. Even though this book is about a different brother, this must and should be read in order. While this book is a Romance novel it is a darker romance with triggers.


I adore Ms. Hardt unique and very talented writing style and with each book in this series there is always more that is uncovered and more love to be found. Shattered is Ryan and Ruby’s story but we get to dig deeper into the tragic events that surround Talon and the Steel family. I adore the tight and loving family bond the Steel family share and their determination to find all those responsible and their determination to uncover the truth behind Talon’s past.


I’m not going to say much because this series uncovers more each time I read a new book. The author not only gives readers a love story but also a dark mystery. Ryan was not as troubled as Talon and Jonah, so I was curious as to what his character would bring into this series. I was actually greatly surprised. He suffers from his own demons, maybe not as harsh but they are there. Ruby is a detective who has teamed up to help Ryan delve more into Talon’s dark, twisted and depraved past.


These two characters are nothing alike but there’s a reason Ms. Hardt put them together and let me say she hit the nail on the button. This is a dark erotic novel so expect some steamy scenes and the Steel Brothers way of handling darkness with their leading ladies their way. Ryan is so sweet and swoon worthy not only with Ruby but with his siblings. As Ryan and Ruby dig deeper into the mysteries surrounding Talon they become closer but Ruby’s past is darker and more twisted that Ryan imagined. Omg the twists and turns, the secret society and the sex was so good. I didn’t want this book to end! The title is fitting for all that the author delivered in this book because she Shattered me more than once. I highly recommend this book and all the books in this series.
