    4.5 stars.The third book in The Harrisons series, 'Tis the Season is eldest sibling, divorcee and single-dad-of-three, Charles' quest in finding love unexpectedly and, having had a glimpse of him in Someone Like You, I couldn't wait to get my hands on him. I wasn't disappointed. Within a matter of chapters, Charles had won my heart and I'll admit that the extra 0.5 I gave this was just for him. He was unexpected, and it was an absolute treat to discover a man who is the powerful businessman, but at the same time is reserved, gentle, considerate and the peacekeeper of the family. He wooed Lisette, and he wooed me.Lisette is as strong and confident as she is insecure and guarded. Regardless of any attraction building she's Charles' employee so there's an imbalance between them and this leads to fear, reticence and plenty of tension between them. "I'm not family. I’m hired help. And we’d all do better to remember that and not cross any lines that shouldn’t be crossed."I won't deny she frustrated at times as she does blow a little hot and cold, but at the same time her reasons are understandable and, as she lowers her barriers and lets Charles in, we're treated to heated passion, tenderness and moments that are a little heart wrenching."...her poor heart never had a chance."I am a fan of Jennifer Gracen's writing and she's taken a well-used trope and created a romantic journey with a relatable couple that pulled me in completely. And with banter between the Harrison siblings injecting humour, and insightful honesty from Charles' kids bringing the smiles, it was a joy from start to finish. I very much hope Tess will get her story. Copy received courtesy of Kensington via NetGalley for an honest and unbiased opinion.

    Slick4.5 starsI have been a big fan of Jennifer Gracen from the first book of hers I read and has continued through The Harrison's series. I'll admit I wasn't all too sure how I would like this book because Charles Harrison III hasn't really impressed me all that much in the first two books, although in the last book I did see him softening a little or maybe he just seemed a bit more human, but Ms. Gracen peeled back his layers and I found the man underneath to be charming, caring, and quite sexy (something I really didn't expect) and the fact that this millionaire fell for his nanny was just too perfect for words. Sweet and sentimental with a helping heap of secretive sexy, I loved Tis the Season!In previous books of this series, we know that Charles Harrison III is slated to take over Harrison Enterprises although in reality he is already running it as COO. We know Charles is a divorced, single dad to three fairly young children, is close to one brother and his sister and has been mending fences with his other brother since he returned to the family fold the previous year. We also know he is a workaholic. This book opens at the party for his 40th birthday where he begins to do some pretty deep soul searching and I have to admit, I admired him for taking stock of his life, for realizing the mistakes he was making and for deciding to change things for him and his children. For the past two years Lisette Gardner has taken care of the Harrison children and gives them the stability, care, and love they need and crave. According to her employer and his siblings as well as the house staff she has managed to tame the out of control children and the children not only respect her but love her. Lisette admits that she is attracted and even has feelings for her boss, but she will never risk her security, her home and her job so she buries it and does her job.I'd like to say Charles woke up one morning and noticed Lisette across the table and fell madly in love with her, but it didn't quite go down that way. I enjoyed the way their relationship began and felt that all the doubts and confusion was spot on especially given the fact that they are employer and employee. While at times I felt the Lisette's worries were a bit overboard, the way Charles tried to discount them was a bit worrisome as well. I loved that Charles' siblings had their backs and even helped Charles to understand Lisette's issues. Most of all the fact that both Charles and Lisette felt they could share their fears, their concerns, and everything they were feeling showed the trust they had built and their strong bond. One thing they were both very adamant about was that despite their relationship and no matter what happened between them that Lisette would continue on as the children's nanny because for both of them the children had to come first, just the way they should.There were a lot of ups and downs in their relationship; Lisette's continued worry, Charles' work situation, an unwelcome surprise visit, and family issues all of which put stress on their burgeoning relationship. I have to say that Charles stepped up to the plate on more than one occasion and even took some advice from a very unlikely source.Tis the Season was a jam packed story filled with emotion, laughter, a bit of craziness but most of all a lot of love and I absolutely adored this book from beginning to end.Review copy provided for an honest review.

    Jennifer Gracen is a newer author to me. 'Tis the Season is only the second book I've read of hers. I can tell you that it won't be the last. I really couldn't wait for Charles Harrison's story. He was so much like his father that you couldn't see him as hero material. I think it was the first time I've ever couldn't wait for a book because I thought it was going to fail. I mean, he acts like a dick in the book that I read before this one, so....He might have acted much different in the first book but since I didn't read it I have no clue how he acted and could only go by his actions in the second book.I'm happy to report that you will not only like him, you'll love him in 'Tis the Season. The real Charles is such a great, sweet and loving man. I really enjoyed him. After he turns forty he decides its time to change who he is. He didn't want to be like his father. That's when his relationship with Lisette starts. My feelings for Lisette are complicated. I like her and think she's a good person but I also don't like how she can't seem to get over this "your rich and I'm not". I get that there is more to it then that, but at times I got tired of the way she thought.At times it felt like it took over the story. Other then that, I enjoyed the story. It's good to see Charles grow and find love with his children and family. By the end of the story you'll be happy with how it ends. Because of the title I thought that the story would be more based at the holidays but really it started right before Halloween and skimmed through Christmas. There is only one more Harrison who's story you'll want. Their sister Tess. No clue if there will be a story for her. My fingers are crossed.

    This book is the third in the Harrisson series and features the eldest Harrisson sibling, Charles. As heir to his family’s business empire and legacy, Charles has done everything that was expected of him. He is now a single father in his 40’s with three small children he hardly sees, and is lonely and dissatisfied.Lisette is the children’s nanny. She has had a crush on her assured, sexy and sweet boss from the day she started working for him. She is very private, dedicated to her job and adores Charles’s children. One night, they both get swept away by their intense chemistry.At first, Charles wants everything to go back to normal and put what happened behind them. But he is consumed by his attraction for Lisette. She is kind, caring and warm. For the first time since his divorce, he feels alive with her. I loved the dynamic between these two genuine characters. Lisette has been going through some difficult time and is resilient. Charles has never been happy in love and is hit by a midlife crisis, questioning his priorities. There is a complete understanding between them, and they are able to comfort one another. Can they embrace their mutual attraction instead of fighting it?I enjoyed this sweet, hearfelt and romantic story. There was no unnecessary drama and lots of fantastic supporting characters. Once again, Jennifer Gracen has delivered a charming and heartwarming story in her Harrisson series.An advanced copy of this book was provided by the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

    I already saw sparks flying between Charles and his nanny in the previous Harrison book (Someone Like You) so I was really looking forward to reading this book. Charles and Lisette have an explosive (and accidental) night of passion. They both swear it would never happen again but neither of them can move past it. I really enjoying the way the relationship between Charles and Lisette developed as well as seeing the other Harrisons again. I thought Charles and Lisette's attempt to return to normalcy after their "mistaken night" was a colossal waste of both their time and mine. Um, hello. You have seriously hot chemistry. Do something about it. I absolutely adored both these characters and this book. I really hope that there's going to be another Harrison novel. I can't get enough of this family. This book was incredibly well-written. The plot was a bit predictable but I enjoyed every second of it. My only issue was that I found the character of Charles' ex-wife to be rather flat and uninteresting. I also wish there was more of a resolution with Charles Harrison Senior. The guy is a dick who desperately needs to be put in his place. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance. This book can be read alone but it would be great to binge-read the entire series all at once.

    The Harrisons are a interesting family, very wealthy but that is not bringing a lot of happiness to Charles, the eldest. This appears to be book three in the family saga. The other two brothers have found their HEA. Charles's sister is still looking. Charles finds his in an unexpected place with someone who he has known for two years. I enjoyed the story but did thing they talked the relationship to death before finally getting together. A nice fun love story.

    Charles and Lisette's story was the most pleasant surprise of the books I've read in the past several months. I bought it on sale as an inexpensive, impulse Christmas read, but the holidays were definitely downplayed here. Lots of intelligent, heartfelt, honest dialogue led the way as single father Charles and the nanny Lisette's story was anything but cliche. Warmth and emotions from two intelligent, reserved, caring people ruled the plot. All the characters, including the three kids, seemed very real and not caricatures at all. I looked forward to carving out time in my day to spend with this memorable couple, enjoying every minute of the read. My only complaint was that the last chapter and short epilogue seemed rushed. I would have liked to see more of the children at the end and their reactions to their new family. This was my first book by this author, and I definitely plan to go back and read the first two books in this series, Charles' fascinating brothers' stories.

    'Tis the Season (The Harrisons #3) by Jennifer Gracen is another amazing addition to The Harrison Series. I have read each book in this series and have loved each and every one of the characters. I think that this book was my favorite so far. Even though it is the third book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone book. This is the story of Charles and Lisette.Charles Harrison the III has been groomed all his life to take over the family business. The good son, the reliable son, the CEO of Harrison Enterprises. A divorced father of 3, he tries to give his kids what they need, but there is never enough time in the day. Finding time to spend with his family and the obligations of running a company leaves Charles tired. With his 40th birthday comes realizations that his children hate him, that he is turning into his father and that he needs to make some changes in his life. Throwing himself a pity party for one, drinking too much, he does the unthinkable, he sleeps with the nanny, the sexy, desirable, Lisette Gardner.Lisette Gardner has had alot of pain in her life. She lost her mother to cancer at an early age, she lost her unborn child in a car accident that almost killed her as well. Her fiance left her, and she is day by day watching the father that has been her rock slowly slip away to early on set Alzheimer. Having no family left, Lisette feels like a part of the Harrison family. She loves the children and has a bit of a crush on her boss. When they have a hot roll in the sheets, Lisette if afraid that he is going to fire her.When Charles breaks through Lisette's walls and convinces her to give him a chance, give them a chance, she is afraid. He is Charles Harrison the III, if word got out, he would survive, but she would be ruined. When Charles brushes her fears aside and goes full steam ahead, it causes Lisette to panic. When Lisette over hears the gossips ridiculing her, when Charles Harrison the II shows up at the door and offers to pay her off, and when ex-wife makes an appearance, causing problems for Lisette, she does the only thing she can, she runs. Charles will have to slay some dragons and ride to the rescue before he looses the best thing that ever happened to him, before he looses the woman that makes him a better man.I loved the connection between Charles and Lisette. I love how protective Charles is of Lisette. He fights his ex, he fights his father, heck he would take on the world to keep Lisette from being hurt. There is a little surprise and a secret twist to the story that is truly a Christmas Miracle, and it makes this story all the sweeter. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book, because we have a sister who needs to find her HEA and if it is anything like the last 3 books, it will be brilliant.

    I've been anxiously waiting for this book since I read Someone Like You (The Harrisons #2) back in May, and when I finally read it I wasn't disappointed, even though the story wasn't what I was expecting.This third installment in The Harrisons saga was truly enjoyable, although I wasn't quite sure it would be at the beginning (no spoilers...just don't give up after Chapter Three!) But the author pulled it off (which shouldn't surprise me after reading Someone Like You).Having read the first two books in the series (More Than You Know, The Harrisons #1, and Someone Like You, The Harrisons #2), I was expecting a dysfunctional relationship between Charles III (aka Tripp) and his father (Charles II). Sure enough, it was as bad as I expected it to be. I could only shake my head and thank goodness I never had to deal with what Charles had to deal with! But the whole dynamic was a great backstory and helped explain who and what Charles was when he celebrated his 40th birthday in a way that horrified him afterward.I adored Lisette, and could totally relate to her. This wasn't the stereotypical "billionaire falls for the sweet little nanny" story you might expect. Lisette had multiple layers to her personality (as do most of us), and the author did a great job revealing little bits and pieces of her character throughout the book. There was a time or two when I thought she was making the wrong decision, but that just made her true to herself. Since it's a romance, I knew Lisette would finally end up making the right decision, but I was biting my lip because there was just that touch of uncertainty...I also loved Charles. He wanted so badly to do "the right thing," not so much for himself but for his children and Lisette. But he was all-too-human, and that made him more likeable, more down to earth.My biggest complaint is something over which the author had no control -- the cover doesn't give you a good feel for the story at all. (I refuse to blame the author, but I did keep looking back at the cover as I read, shaking my head). All I can say is, don't let the cover put you off. Jennifer Gracen delivers once again with 'Tis the Season.As always, it's great seeing the characters from the previous books in the series, all doing well (Dane and Julia, Pierce and Abby, and Tess, aka "Tesstastic.") It's endearing. And the siblings' interactions are so true-to-life, the conversations so realistic, I could see myself saying some of the same things they said to Charles.All in all this was a wonderful read, and I didn't want it to end. I'll be eagerly awaiting the next installment (Tess's story!)(ARC received from the author for an honest review.)

    Throughout the series, Charles Harrison has always been the quieter, more restrained and constrained brother, with an overlay of sadness. A nasty divorce has been in the offing, and while these siblings are super supportive and wonderful friends, he’s always been the one who best conformed to the family ideals. Not that those were anything to write home about. Now single with his three kids, he’s completely obsessed with the family reputation and ashamed of the scandal his divorce has wrought on the family name. So, even though Lisette is available, sympathetic and the children love her, the last thing he wants to do is court more scandal. Lisette is wonderful: solid and consistent with the children, helpful and everything that one could hope for. Beyond reproach, her interactions with Charles are professional, but laced with the emotion and caring she feels for him and the children. Her only problem is her love for Charles, and something she will do everything to keep her own little secret. With his own dysfunctional (OMG SO BAD) relationship with his father, Charles is determined to have more connection to his children, while still behaving himself. So, a completely uncharacteristic move after his birthday has him reeling. But, there’s so much more here. Lisette is his equal (and possibly his better in terms of emotional balance) than Charles, but she’s no foolish miss falling for the rich man. She’s fallen for the man himself, and while her choices aren’t always the best, she does carry on and move forward despite the missteps….showing her personality and heart. Together these two are adorable, and while Charles may feel that his father would raise a fuss over his budding relationship with Lisette, his brothers and sister ONLY want to see him happy, and know that Lisette, despite her introduction to the family as an employee, is the best person to help Charles find the balance and happiness he so desires.

    Take two people who fall in love & you have a normal romance that no one cares about. Make one a billionaire COO that has taken over running his father's company & is divorced with three kids & things change. Have the female be the children's nanny & you have a scandal. Charles has been unhappy for a while & realizes he's turning into an angry, bitter man like his father who is never there for his children. Charles opens his eyes & it's like he sees Lisette for the first time. Lisette has had feelings for Charles for some time & is nervous about this change. She's been burned by one man & is afraid of it happening again. She enjoys her life with the kids & is afraid something will take it all away from her. Jennifer has done an excellent job with this book. It could have easily been another superficial book regarding a rich man falling for someone below his station but it wasn't. She took us on a journey with each of her characters learning things about themselves & changing the way they look at the world. Charles realizes he's turning into his father, is determined not to & takes us along as he rectifies the situation. Lisette realizes she's been hiding from life, afraid to be hurt again & afraid to trust Charles. She has to find a way to come out of her shell & accept that she deserves to be happy. Once you get past Charles being a billionaire, the characters really are relatable & evoke emotions in the reader. The plot moves at a steady pace & has a few twists & turns that keep you interested & emotionally connected. I was surprised at the vulnerability both characters showed. This was the first book I have read by this author & is Book 3 of the Harrison series but can easily be read as a stand alone. I didn't feel like I missed anything by not having read the first two. I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

    Charles is divorced and single in his forties and lonely and dissatisfied and he has three small kids he seldom sees. Charles is also the CEO of Harrison Enterprises. Charles is the quieter brother and the peacekeeper of the family. Lisette is Charles nanny for his kids. She has had a crush on Charles since Lisette started working for Charles but feels that they should not cross the line separating them when he acts like he is attracted to Lisette also. Then one night Charles and Lisette give into their intense chemistry. Finally Charles is feeling something for the first time since his divorce. Charles has known Lisette for two years. Charles is obsessed with family reputation as he feels ashamed of the scandal brought on the family name. Charles doesn’t have a very good relationship with his dad but wants better for his kids but Charles has to somehow make the time. Lisette and Charles come from different worlds but Lisette cares about the man not his money and she loves the kids. Lisette has not had an easy life : she lost her mother when Lisette was young. She lost her unborn child in a car accident the fiance left Lisette, and her father is slipping away to Alzheimer's. Then Charles ex wife is making problems for Lisette so she leaves.I really enjoyed reading this story. The plot was good. Charles definitely needed a good woman I was happy to see Charles get close to Lisette. It was a fun sweet story and the plot was very good. I felt bad for all the pain Lisette went through in her life. So finally for Lisette to have happiness and caring just made this story. Lisette was good for Charles as well as his children. I was also happy to see Charles’s brothers and sister just wanted to see Charles happy. No matter with who. I really liked the characters and loved the ins and outs of this story. I recommend.

    I love the Harrison clan. The other two books were great as well and I can't wait for Tess's story. Charles Harrison III has essentially been groomed from birth to run the Harrison empire. Having dealt with the stress, pressure, snobbery that has brought throughout the years, Charles realizes he isn't happy and doesn't want to be his father. Charles's father is a lonely, bitter man who has alienated his children while looking down on everyone else below his in social status. When Charles finds himself attracted to his nanny it is not the ideal situation for neither him nor Lisette. Lisette is the best thing to happen to the Harrison children. Having been through two nannies previously, Charles knows Lisette is a godsend to his kids. Lisette has everything invested with the Harrisons- her job- her place to live and her heart with the kids. Having no family of her own, Lisette has given her entire life and love to the three children who are still reeling from the loss of their mother who walked out on them.When Lisette and Charles face their feelings for one another it is something they realize is strong and worth the difficulty they will face with not only the children but with the society standards and gossip mills. But sometimes things are easier said than done. When Lisette overhears vapid women discussing her and Charles, then the ex-wife throws fuel to the fire followed by the father, Charles II, lighting said fire, Lisette thinks it best is she leave.Is Lisette what Charles really wants despite the society standards? Is she worth fighting for and bringing home. Tis the Season after all.

    The Harrison family has 4 siblings. So far, we have met Dane (MORE THAN YOU KNOW) and Pierce (SOMEONE LIKE YOU). In TIS THE SEASON, we get to meet Charles Harrison III, who is the eldest of the four. Unlike Dane and Pierce, Charles works for the family company and seems to be the most straight laced of the group. After all, he has been groomed since his childhood to take over when their father passes on. Aside from that, he has 3 children from a failed marriage that live under his care.While I really enjoyed the first two books in the series, I was concerned because a book about Charles didn’t seem like it would really be that interesting. In the other books, he isn’t a very exciting character. Always the “straight laced” one. Kind of just there to be a support for the other characters that have these wild stories that are happening to them. Stuffy. A boring guy. I’m so happy that I was wrong about Charles! TIS THE SEASON was fantastic! Probably my favorite of the three, so far (we still have one more sibling to read about…)!Jennifer Gracen writes Charles like you wouldn’t expect...vulnerable. Like his younger brothers, he seems like he is a man who knows who he is and what he should be doing, but you find that he is just doing what he was groomed to be...a Harrison. Not really being himself. Feeling alone. Not connected to his children. Not perfect. And he realizes this isn’t a good thing, which is only the beginning of his adventure.You should get your hands on it and find out why Charles will be your favorite Harrison brother.

    I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.It took me a few minutes to find the words that would best describe this book for me. I hadn’t read any of the previous books about the Harrisons by Ms. Gracen. I found that I was able to follow along with the story without missing a beat. Have you ever been able to empathize with a character? I know exactly how Charles felt. To have the whole world tell you what you should be doing instead of living. Missing out on his kids, his friends, and his life. Luckily he woke up before it was too late. What came of his epiphany was that something he needed in his life was right where it should be. He was just too blind to see. But I can also totally relate to Lisette. She has a confidence issue and worries what others think of her. She would rather run below the radar than be a spark shinning in the crowd. This book was beautifully written, providing us a story of a man and a woman who are perfect for each other. But there are a few curve balls thrown in there. When the billionaire realizes that he wants a relationship with his nanny, he doesn’t care what anyone thinks except her and his children. This story shows us how a relationship isn’t just built on sex. It takes us on a journey to the core of a real relationship. I would recommend this book to other and I can’t wait to read more about the Harrison family.

    Charles Harrison III is responsible, organized, and extremely wealthy. He doesn’t let any breath of scandal touch his well-groomed life, now that he has moved beyond his disastrous divorce. He has an efficient nanny to watch over his children whenever he is away on business, which is often.Lisette is the perfect nanny. She loves the Harrison children. And, oh yeah, she loves their father too, but she keeps that under wraps. She doesn’t want anything to threaten her dream job, because her past haunts her and wouldn’t look good on a resume.That’s the cast of main characters for ‘Tis the Season. Jennifer Gracen sent me an advanced reader copy so I could preview it and offer my honest opinion of it for reviews. Well, here’s how my experience went…I settled down for lunch hour at work with my sandwich and chips, thinking I’d read a nice romance as I ate. Chapter One – nice intro to the situation and characters. Then came Chapter Two. Whoa! Almost dropped my Doritos! The novel went from being a lunch time diversion to being a book I couldn’t put down. Gracen has the handle on the romance genre. Great story, believable characters, and the promise of a good read.

    Review: Having followed the Harrisons from the very beginning, I was glad that Kensington didn't put up any conditions while requesting the ARC. There's is. Othing dramatic to expect from the plot. It's a build up of a sweet romance between two mature characters with problems that almost resemble the real world. The characters definitely have a personality that can be defined as approachable and relatable. The plotline is sweet and simple while ensuring a continuity with the previous two books. The style of narration is simple and keeps in tune with the romance of the lead characters. The cover image definitely looks more pike a movie poster than a book cover, but it's not something major that I will crib about. My opinion: For those who are obsessive like me and don't like to leave a series in between, you won't be disappointed. For those who are starting it for the first time, you won't miss out on the previous books; this one has its unique personality and you can very well enjoy it. My rating: 4 out of 5

    What happens when you take a buttoned-up, workaholic single father and put him in a house with a woman who not only is the best thing to ever happen to his kids, but to him as well? You get a love story that will keep you turning the pages and riding a rollercoaster of highs and lows as these two wonderful people try to find their way past all of the public censure and private insecurities that threaten to keep them apart. Charles has been burned by love before, and he’s not about to tempt fate by breaking the rules a second time. Lisette knows that to go after the man she wants means to risk the security and sense of belonging she’s found living in Charles’s home as the nanny to his kids. Watching them both struggle against the chemistry that practically sizzles on the page is almost painful at times. When they finally do come together…yowza! But even then, the problems keeping them apart aren’t magically solved, and you’ll be rooting for these two star-crossed lovers right to the very last chapter.

    The first book in this series was my first time reading this author, and I really like the book. I like the book despite the fact the main female character was a bit annoying with all her internal negative monologues. The second book featured a female lead who was even more annoying, but, this book featured "Lisette" the most annoying of the three. There was a lot of shaking and trembling on her part, tears and a shit load of internal negative monologues. Why Charles keep trying to prove he cares about her and she deserves his love is beyond me. Don't get me wrong: I love the the story , I love the series, but, I don't love the weak, whinny, wimpy women. That been said, I am looking forward to Tess story.

    LOVED this book!! It's the third in The Harrison's series but each can be read standalone. Charles Harrison III always knew the path his life would take. Outwardly it might appear that he has it all. Three wonderful children and CEO of the family business but as he celebrates his fortieth birthday he realizes he needs and wants more. He doesn't want to turn into the bitter angry man his father is. Being tempted by the beautiful nanny that cares for his children probably isn't the wisest move but some attractions are to hard to resist. Convincing Lisette that they could have something real isn't so easy though. The differences in their lives seems like too much to overcome for Lisette but Charles is determined and he doesn't care what anyone thinks. This story shows us that if you want something and are willing to work for it, anything can happen. I loved this one and would definitely recommend it.

    Charles is from a wealthy family and now divorced. He can't afford for his family to be involved in a scandal but Charles and his nanny, Lisette, are an item. His divorce has already disgraced his family..how's this going to go over?Lisette is a nanny for Charles Harrison. She's always loved him, but he was untouchable to her. Now that he's divorced, she's getting vibes from him..like he's interested in her. Can she finally admit her feelings to him? They are from totally different worlds and her past is still haunting her. She is determined to resist his flirtatiousness. How does that go for her?I've seen movies with this type of scenario, but I've never read a book like this and I really enjoyed it!!Thanks to Kensington Books (Zebra Shout) via NetGalley for a copy of this book!

    I really enjoyed the first two books in The Harrison series and I was not disappointed with 'Tis The Season. I love Gracen's writing style and her characters somehow feel like old friends by the time I'm finished with the book.

    Great book the story of the oldest brother and his nanny.Hopefully the next book will be about Tess (the only sister and the only other Harrison sibling that hasn't been written about)
