From New York Times and USAToday bestselling romance author Jean Brashear:

Dalton Wheeler vanished from Morning Star, Texas nearly forty years ago under suspicion of murder, leaving behind him a trail of secrets, scandal and lives torn apart in the wake of his reported death. The woman he loved married another, and life went on.

Now the main characters in this tragedy are all gone, and in the wake of the final man's last will and testament, the past has roared back with a vengeance. Secrets will be revealed and the lives of four people will be shattered as they learn that who they are and where they come from is not at all what they always believed.

Up-and-coming chef Maddie Collins finds out that her father's life was a lie when she is bequeathed a family homeplace she never knew existed—by the husband of the only woman her father ever loved. A former SEAL, rugged cowboy Boone Gallagher arrives back in Texas to discover that the father who drove him away has struck one last blow. The only place he's ever thought of as home now belongs to a woman who doesn't want it, and he must keep her there for thirty days—or it will be lost to them both.

No surprizes, very steamy sex, this plot has been used to death. Chick lit to the max. Adult readers, because of the very descriptive sex. About 400 pages. No actual conclusion. Have to purchase next book at $3.99 to find out happens. AD

Maddie and Boone's story is so full of sexual tension you knew that when they finally got together it would be super hot and sexy. Can't wait to read about Mitch and the Dev/Lacey stories.

It says over 3000 pages but its far from that. The writer gives u short parts of alot of her books. 1000 more pages worth. But i did enjoy her work . An romantic semi sexual story. I am glad i read it.

Suppose you found out four years after your father died that he was living under an assumed name and had confessed to murdering his abusive step-father before running. Then you get a call from a private investigator who tells you that you have been left a home in Morning Star, Texas, but you have to live there for 30 days before it will be yours. This is the premiss of Texas Secrets, the catch being that the man who left you the home also had two estranged sons and you have to live with the oldest or the home goes to the abusive step-father's family. The son does not want you there and he definitely doesn't want to fall in love with another city girl. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this story. The characters were likeable and the author tells a good story.

A Little  Long................................................................................... The story of Boone and Maddie probably could have been told in about 250 pages.  But unfortunately  It's 400 pages. There was a lot of repetition.  If they talked about  his dead  wife hating Texas or her ex trying to change her one more time my eyes were going to cross.  Plus this couple had a lack of communication developed to an art form.  But they were a cute couple and it was a nice lite read.  Just a little dragged out.

I thought this book was superb. The heroine was so different and refreshing. She had fantastic chemistry with Boone, the hero. It was a fun story with excellent characters. Will buy the next (Mitch's story). ##

This story starts with Maddie Rose Collins, who is a chef in the city, finding out she has inherited a ranch house in Texas. The house was left to her by an old friend of her deceased father's with the condition that she has to live in the house for 30 days or it will be sold to someone outside the family. After the 30 days she can keep it or sell it to one of the owner's sons. Boone Gallagher is the son who will be able to buy the house if Maddie decides to sell. He was at the house when Maddie arrived, believing his father left him the house. He can't believe that he and his brother were left the ranch property but not the house. Maddie and Boone decide to stay in the house together and soon they start having feelings for each other. I liked this well written novel with it's twists and turns.  Not only was Maddie shocked to find out she inherited a house from a stranger, she also found out her father wasn't who she was lead to believe. Both of these characters had lots of family secrets they found out about.  The characters were well developed so you really get a feel for them.  I felt sorry for Boone with the way his father treated him, both when he was a teen and after his death.

SWEET AND SASSY!! There is only one love scene, yes it is somewhat descriptive, but certainly not like other Romance Novels that are filled with sex about every other page. I thought the description was beautifully written, and left me feeling like you knew what they felt not only physically, but emotionally. This isn't a story about danger, intrigue, no just a Romance between two people, who fought it, maybe sometimes to much so at times. It has an Epilogue, but not that far into the future. I felt a connection to both the H/h right away. It does leave some questions unanswered about other relatives, but as far as the relationship of our couple, that is settled. (ljb)
