When she's lost all her dreams and is finally finding a place to call home, will she place her trust—and her heart—in the hands of a wanderer with secrets?

Vanessa Porter's brilliant career as a hotelier goes up in flames after a scandal, and she pours herself into rehabbing an old mansion to become a boutique hotel, doing much of the work herself because her funds are running out.

Hotshot adventure photographer Dane Sullivan's career is grounded after a near-death fall, and he's no longer sure he wants the life of death-defying risk that energized him for so long. While he's recovering and assessing his options, his kid sister Jilly volunteers him to help her friend Vanessa with handyman skills he and his brothers learned from their dad.

The irascible, too-handsome photographer turned handyman won't be around long, which suits Vanessa just fine—until the sparks between them turn from aggravation to smoldering attraction. Though her life has been filled with loss, can she survive losing this man who's come to mean so much to her?

As Dane begins to contemplate sinking roots, the once-in-a-lifetime trip to a forbidden land suddenly is his for the taking, and he will have to choose between a life he never imagined and the dream that would restore the career that was once all he ever wanted.

I have read every story in the Texas Heroes series. This is my favorite. Dane and Vanessa have so much chemistry. For numerous reasons they decide friends with benefits is the way to proceed. Both are stubborn and opinionated. Dane is determined to leave but not without making sure Vanessa is in a good place. Vanessa is willing to let Dane leave without telling him how she feels. Jean manages to write this story so you feel the confusion and heartache, just as you feel the love when their happily ever after is achieved. Fantastic romance story.

Jean Brashear writes stories that you know are going to give you a happy ending, but she also makes her characters work hard getting there. In this installment of the Texas Heroes series (number 28, but don't let that scare you, they are all standalone books) Dane Sullivan and Vanessa Porter are starting over after careers that came crashing down around them. Dane was badly hurt and his friend died while Dane was taking photographs and Vanessa was framed at the hotel she ran and accused of stealing money. Neither of them are looking for a relationship, but they are thrown together a few times and the sparks begin to fly. When I typed that this is the 28th book in this series and because I have read every one, anyone reading this will know I am a fan. The author writes characters that are admirable and puts them in situations that aren't always that easy to escape. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves to read HEA stories. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Texas Wanderer is book 6 in the Lone Star Lovers (Texas Heroes book 28) an another amazing read by Jean Brashear. Dane Sullivan is a world famous photographer always looking for the perfect photograph and a loner until he is seriously injured and his friend and guide dies while trying to get the perfect shot. Now being back home recovering from his injuries he starts wondering if he's lost his mojo as he can't bring himself to pick his cameras up again...that is until he meets Vanessa, a strong independent woman who has lost her brilliant career as a hotelier. She is determined to show everyone what she is made of by taking a old mansion and turning into a boutique hotel that caters to the rich and famous. With her funds running low she has been making all the repairs by herself and when her friend Jilly volunteers her brother Dane, with his expertise as a handyman which he learned growing up. Can these two find way to heal their past, move forward in a relationship, build a future together or will Dane get a last shot at being world famous again but lose the love of his life he thought he would never find??

It was interesting how this book showed that you can be surrounded by people and still be alone. Dane and Vanessa experienced being alone in different ways. Yet, each of them were hiding in their own way. Gradually, you see the chemistry they have helping them to open up to each other, to feel safe enough to share, and lean on each other, even if they still have some fears. Again, the Sandavol/Sullivan family open their arms and hearts to take in another person who needs the love and strength of their family. Dane and Vanessa had moments when they were equally irritating, funny, and flirty. This was an enjoyable read with a HEA. I would definitely recommend this book. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

I loved this story. These characters grabbed my heart right from the start. Both Dane and Vanessa have had hard times hit their lives. Dane suffered a loss of a dear friend and now finds himself lost and his career in jeopardy. Vanessa had her heart and career ripped away in humiliating implosion. Now she's starting over but the mansion she plans to rehab and turn into a small hotel may be more than she bargained for. These two are brought together when Dane's sister Jilly offers up his services as a handyman. As these two work together sparks begin to fly. Could they help heal each other without getting hurt all over again? She's digging in deep roots while he has always been a wanderer. Could this ever work? This is a wonderfully done story and one I think everyone will enjoy. I definitely recommend it.
