Rachel Dennehy had a crazy thought. If she could just start over somewhere else, she could forget about her sad and tragic past and all the ghosts that chased her. When an email landed in her inbox, to tutor a difficult student whose father just happened to be the CEO of one of the biggest companies in the nation, the apple was a bit too enticing for Rachel to refuse. She moves from Texas to Beverly Hills, where she is tasked with turning around her wealthy pupil’s bad attitude. It is a bad attitude that stems almost entirely from his parents’ ugly divorce and even uglier custody battle.
That her new boss Andrew, or Drew, Fullerton is one of the handsomest and most eligible bachelors in the world means nothing to Rachel. She has absolutely no plans to ever marry or have kids of her own. Her priority is teaching nine-year-old Jonathan, who needs her guidance and her direction and... most importantly... her friendship.
Drew’s brother, Alex, however, assumes otherwise. He basically accuses her of being a gold-digging opportunist upon their first meeting. This sets the two immediately at odds, though they both have young Jonathan’s best interest at heart. Alex believes that Rachel is a “ringer,” a wholesome alternative to edge Jonathan’s socialite mother out of the running for custody, since she left Drew after her own salacious affair with a younger man. He wastes no time in telling Rachel that as long as she stays in her job, she will keep Jonathan from his real mother, and that is the driving force behind Drew's interest.
Unfortunately the more he tries to warn her away from Drew, the closer he ultimately propels her toward her charming boss. Drew never questions her motivation or her presence because Jonathan thrives under her tutelage, and Drew is beguiled by her no-nonsense attitude that challenges him from the start.
Rachel navigates these choppy waters solely to protect Jonathan. She sees the adults in the family as self-serving; most of whom are far more interested in hurting each other than taking care of this fragile, vulnerable boy. Her heart traps her into this sticky web, despite her own history of loss and betrayal. How long will she last? More importantly, what will she be required to give to save these Fullerton men who continually tug her in three different directions?
The saga begins with the first book, titled “Enticed,” due to release in early 2014. Author Ginger Voight returns to the dream-making landscape of Los Angeles, in a new tale that throws back the curtain on the dangerous power, appeal and excess of the privileged. Only by the time this tale is done, one principle character will pay the ultimate price as they all race toward that elusive happily ever after.

The saga continues for Rachel Dennehy, the tenacious small-town teacher caught in between two compelling, powerful brothers.
****This is Book 2 in the series. Blurb may contain spoilers for Book 1.****
In Book 2 of the Fullerton Family Saga, teacher Rachel Dennehy heads back to California to save her favorite little boy from his rapid downward spiral. She feels responsible for Jonathan's destructive behavior, knowing it was her broken promise that sent him off the rails. She moves in with Alex, a man who had been her nemesis for so long. Thrust together with the shared goal of saving Jonathan, they find more in common than they had realized.
In fact, it is Alex who comes to her rescue Drew confronts Rachel over her “betrayal.” The chemistry still burns hot between them, but Rachel cannot forgive Drew’s cruel deception. Unfortunately he is unwilling to let her go. Drew Fullerton doesn't like to lose, especially to his younger brother. So he proceeds with his plan to win her back, using every trick in the book to force her hand, including his son.
Young Jonathan holds fast to his dream of a real family, which tears her in yet another direction. Her heart is torn between the three Fullertons, all of whom need her in very different ways. Someone is going to get hurt, no matter what she does. She struggles to do what is right, even when she finds it puts her at direct odds with what she wants.
How far must Rachel go to win back Jonathan’s trust, and protect the men she has grown to love?


In the third and final book of the Fullerton Family Saga, long-simmering secrets explode with disastrous consequences. The fractured Fullertons face their biggest challenges yet, and every single one must rise to their own personal challenges and beat their demons once and for all - no matter what it takes.
In the conclusion of this best-selling, highly rated series, author Ginger Voight once again raises the stakes for her characters and her readers. These characters you have grown to love (and hate) are faced with heart-wrenching challenges that will test them unlike anything they've experienced so far. In the end, only love can save them. It is a message of hope, family and forgiveness amidst the exciting backdrop of excess and power.
4.5 Star Review by Nicole Lorenzo
* contains spoilers please don’t read unless you have read the first two books in the series!

 When Rachel married Drew Fullerton she knew her life was never going to be the same.  Drew promises her the world and intends to give her and their expanding family all their hearts desires. Rachel’s main concern is to have a real family, something both her and Jonathon have long wished for. Rachel never thought she would be a mother again and now she has Jonathon and a new baby on the way.

As excited as Rachel should be about being the new bride to one of the most powerful men in the world, she can’t help but feel regret over the choices that she made that got her there. Although Alex set her free when she married Drew, he still had hold of her heart and Drew is less than pleased with that.

“ …you are making this much harder than it has to be. We are bound together for life. No amount of pining for another man will change that.”

Rachel made a promise when she married Drew and she knows that she has to let Alex go to fulfill that promise. She gives herself fully to Drew and Jonathon as they prepare for the upcoming arrival of the newest Fullerton.  Jonathon is happy to have the family unit he has always wanted, but he misses his Uncle Alex terribly. After spending so much time on the ranch last year he became incredibly close to both Alex and his son Max. Rachel asks Drew to let Alex back into their lives, for Jonathan’s sake, for the sake of family. Drew agrees but makes a point to prove to Alex that he won the girl every time they are together by showering Rachel with over the top public displays of affection. This even carries over into Fullerton Enterprises where Alex has decided, much to Drew’s dismay, to take a more active role.  Rachel loves Drew, a part of her always had, she just has to prove to him that she doesn’t have ulterior motives for wanting Alex to come around more. 

“I had been branded by his touch and claimed within his heart. It was why I could never fully let him go.”

Rachel, although overjoyed at the fact that she is having another baby is suffering from horrendous morning sickness. Drew has stepped up and is taking his role as doting husband and caretaker to the next level.  He meets all of Rachel’s needs with love and kindness and she finds herself falling more in love with him.  But when Drew seems to be heading into dangerous waters with certain business decisions he wont take any advice from her or Alex. When they face something unexpected with Rachel’s pregnancy, Drew hires a nanny, a young gorgeous blonde who is very much Drew’s type and she can’t help but feel jealous. Then Jonathon’s mother starts making trouble and all of this stress starts to put a strain on Rachel and Drew’s marriage. Drew starts drinking heavily and Rachel turns to Alex for advice and support.  When Rachel has a terrible scare with her pregnancy it scares Drew straight and he changes his ways almost immediately.

“You’ve given my life meaning from the very day you walked into it. I always thought I was some master of the universe, but you raised the bar on my life. You push me and drive me to be a better father and a better man.”

Drew loves Rachel with everything he has, he knows his family is everything and the thought of losing them is too much to bear.  So when Alex confronts him about some bad business dealings he does everything he can to make it right. Everything seems to be going their way and then the Unimaginable happens. Tragedy strikes the Fullerton’s and none of their lives will ever be the same.

I was highly anticipating this final installment in The Fullerton Saga. Boy, Ginger Voight did not disappoint me, Enraptured was a fantastic conclusion to this series!! After I read Entangled I was left feeling a little annoyed with Rachel and her succumbing to Drew and his manipulative ways. But Drew definitely redeemed himself and won a place in my heart. We get to see a whole other side of Drew that I did not expect at all.  Rachel has to be one of the strongest female characters ever. The amount of heartache that this woman has to endure throughout this series is just unbelievable. But she stays true to herself and stays strong through it all and she definitely deserved her happy ending. My heart went out to poor Alex. He was obviously not over Rachel and was forced to watch Drew paw all over her every second they were together. But he stayed his valiant, but broody self and he is still my favorite character in this series. I can’t say too much without giving too much away but I will say that Enraptured will have you laughing, crying and sometimes even yelling out loud. It was a lovely but bittersweet ending to all the drama the Fullerton men and Rachel have been through. This is a series that will stick with me for a long time and I definitely recommend that if you haven’t started this series yet you need to start it  right away!

 “We walked this life together, carving out a new Fullerton legacy full of love and faith and forgiveness at last.”

Ginger Voight is prolific author, freelance writer and optioned screenwriter. Her fiction is diverse, with novels like the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD.
Having grown up reading different authors like Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger has always been drawn more to story than to genre. This shows up in her various stories. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of horror, suspense, and romance.
Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart, ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. As a result, Ginger is making a name for herself writing romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman rather than those traditionally represented in the size-biased American media. Her Rubenesque romances were created especially for those heroines with fuller figures, who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. Such titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE, THE GROUPIE TRILOGY, THE FIERCE TRILOGY and PICTURE POSTCARDS.
Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six-word memoir.
