Just plain bad.
Jimmy Corona¿s ex wife is a drug addict, who signed away custody of their son when he was a month old, after she injured his legs when she fell down the stairs with him. Jimmy has decided Tyler needs a mother so he cold bloodedly sets out to find a wife. His plan is a loveless, sexless marriage which will end in a divorce when Tyler reaches 18. He doesn¿t intend to let the woman in on his plans until after they are married. He returns to his hometown and runs into Kara Brand who has turned into a beautiful woman that his son Tyler immediately adores. When he finds out Kara has loved him since high school he figures he won¿t have any trouble trapping her by pretending to love her, using Tyler as the final bait. Jimmy is a conscientless user. If he loves his son so much why would he give him the example that marriage means nothing with one-sided love and based on lies. Jimmy is going to stand up in front of God and say vows he has no intention of keeping. ¿Love (doesn¿t figure into the picture for him), honor (what he¿s doing is very dishonorable), cherish (he doesn¿t care), faithful only to each other (I can¿t imagine a 30 year old man going without sex for 15 years so he will cheat) till death do us part (or until Tyler is grown, whichever comes first)¿ And Kara, though she knows something is not right, has so little pride and is such a naive, wimpy girl (girl fits because she¿s childish) that she lets Jimmy use her. Frankly they were both disgusting! Oh and the sex scenes which Maggie Shayne can really write? There weren¿t any. Also as others pointed out the cover is not at all representative of the story. If you are reading the whole Oklahoma and Texas Brand series you might want to read this one. Otherwise give it a wide berth.
