Cora Brent is an American author popular for the writing of a series of contemporary romance titles, the most popular of which is the Gentry Boys series of novels. Born in a cold climate, Brent left as soon as she could to go live with her husband, her children, and a prickly cactus in her desert home. Cora’s closet is full of boxes of unfinished novels that she has kept from all the way back to the eighties, which is when she started writing stories as a child. Even as a child, she had always had the dream of becoming an author, and becoming a USA Today and New York Times bestselling author in the contemporary romance genre is a dream come true. Before she became a full time writer, she worked as an accountant, a job that she never found fulfilling enough. She is a great believer in happily ever after and believes that she is living it. The story of Cora Brent and her husband is akin to some fantastic and unrealistic instant love. She had moved in with her boyfriend only a few weeks after they met, before they got engaged and moved to the desert several weeks later. Over a decade and now with two children their love story does not look like an unattainable fantasy anymore. Cora is a great lover of embroidered dishcloths, her vintage sewing machines from Kenmore, grunge era flannel, wild romantic stories, and anything that that has to do with the pop culture of the eighties. Some things from the eighties she has never let go include stone wash jeans, wood paneled walls, boom boxes, early Madonna, big hair, scrunchies, and leg warmers. If you love the happily ever after stories, there is nothing better than Cora Brent.

Cora Brent’s Gentry series of novel is about the Gentrys a rough band of brother who have had some of the toughest of upbringing. Despite their unusual names, the Gentrys are quite an interesting bunch that had the misfortune of being brought up by violently attentive, often neglectful, and worthless parents. However, in the face of adversary the brothers have managed to forge one of the most incredible of bonds, as they only had each other to depend on. Nonetheless, because of their tough upbringing they had developed a reputation as the scourge of the prison town that was their home. There is something primeval about Brent’s alpha male characters that makes the Gentrys so alluring. Given that people and naturally women are attracted to the power and strength of the alpha male, the brothers are highly attractive given their proclivities to fight to defend themselves and their loved ones. What makes the Gentry boys so intriguing is that even with all their toughness, they still possess the promise of redemption. Despite all their rough qualities, they are determined to make something of themselves, and with the help of the heroines, they overcome their demons to demonstrate just how strong of a will they possess. The heroines in the series did not have a childhood that is too different from that of the heroes. They typically come from dysfunctional families where there was a lot of infighting and abuse that made them lose their taste for relationships, both familial and romantic.

The heroines in Cora Brent’s novels have the tendency to irk with their closed personalities and stubbornness. But once they let go to give in to the advances of the heroes, they go all in with the Gentry boys to make for one of the most thrilling of rides. Over the course of the narratives, the heroines turn themselves around to come out of their shells and express themselves in a way that does not feel forced. They retain some of their social awkwardness, though it is amazing what love does for their personality. As for the Gentry one of whom is the lead in each novel, they are fine male specimens that would make any woman swoon. They are sexy, fine, absolutely lovable, charismatic, funny as hell, and sexy as sin alpha men with enviable relationships with their brothers. Given they come from troubled pasts, the love, and loyalty that the brothers show for each other and their women is especially touching, especially in the context of the lightheartedness and humor. Told from dual perspectives, the novels are fantastic reads that the reader will find impossible to put down.

“Draw” the first novel in the Gentry Boys series of novels by Cora Brent is the story of two of the unlikeliest of lovebirds. Saylor had long believed that the concept of love was nothing but a fable found in movies. After facing untold brutality from a man she loved, she fled to Arizona where she found a vibrant college town, where she believed she could start afresh. In her new hometown she runs into Cord Gentry, one of the Gentry brothers with the tough and lusty allure that she had known since she was a child. Years ago, the man had seduced her as a sick joke and now that she has met him, he is even more despicable. He is a dangerous and heartless man who robbed men for money he did not want to earn himself. But despite being untrustworthy and overall bad for her, she cannot help herself from wanting him so much. Cord in the other hand had gotten used to himself and his brothers being called white trash Gentry boys. Over the years, they had come to accept that trash was what they were. They endured a childhood that was full of nightmares even as they had to live on the edge of a prison town for years. Their tough upbringing had made him believe that his brother Creed and Chase were the only people that mattered. Now that he has met her can he change his ways and better himself for her?

“Risk” the second novel in the Gentry series of novels is about Truly, who has had a hard life and at twenty one has a laundry list of heartbreaks that have drained her spirit. She knows that giving her heart to someone can be one of the most careless of things she could ever do. She breaks all her rules when she jumps into bed with a brooding man whore that hardly talks. What was supposed to be explained as a night of passion and weakness has now resulted in impulses she cannot control, as she keeps going back for more. Creed had always lived a life of violence but this time he had gotten himself in something even worse. His brothers were all he ever had and when he got with Truly, it was to be nothing but a quick time with her that would soon be forgotten. But now she is all that he can think of.
