    Chance Hardin knew it was time to move on from the Southern Cros

    Chance Hardin knew it was time to move on from the Southern Cross and join his brothers at Shiloh Oil. For so many years, he’d hidden a secret from his brothers, a horrible revelation that had the potential to rip the family apart. Their father had once been tempted by the charms of Blanche Dumont, a beautiful siren. On the brink of leaving his wife and sons to join his new lady love, there had been a terrible car crash. That was the last day Chance had seen his parents alive.

    Now, Shay Dumont, Blanche’s daughter, has entered Chance’s life. The lovely woman is nothing like her mother. However, her strange connection to the Calhoun family has the potential to destroy their fragile relationship. Little Darcy, Shay’s adopted daughter, also plays a role in helping Chance understand that it’s time to leave the past behind him and forge a new life with the very special woman he loves.

    Fresh Take on Love

    A little misunderstanding never hurt anyone...much.

    I have to admit, this isn't my first Linda Warren book. I've happily nabbed her other books when shopping. I know the writing will be tight, the characters engaging and I won't be able to put the book down. The Texan's Secret is no exception.

    The moment I sat down to read this book, I literally couldn't put it down. I had to know what would happen next. The characters jump right off the page. I love the twists and turns. Nothing happened quite how I'd expected.

    Now, some might consider an oil man plot a little tired. Yes, it's used a lot, but Linda Warren manages to add little touches that makes the story fresh. My one niggle was that here and there large chunks of info seemed plopped in. It slowed the story a bit, but did help my overall following of the tale.

    I must say I rooted for Shay and Chance, especially when it looked really bad for the both of them. I could relate to Shay's confusion and frustration. She only wants the best for Chance and herself. Ah, but life has different plans. I loved her strength and the fact that she didn't back down. There's issues she's got to deal with that many people would struggle with. Kudos to Ms. Warren and Shay.

    And that's what makes this story really engaging--it wasn't what I'd expected and I'm glad I got this book. And if I'm not mistaken, there are going to be more as there are plenty of brothers and fantastic secondary characters. I can't wait.

    If you want a book that's a great beach read or perfect for a lazy afternoon, then this is the book for you. I recommend The Texan's Secret. Grab a copy now.

    the first Hardin Boys tale is an enjoyable opening act.

    Southern Cross ranch manager Chance Hardin considers joining his two brothers (Cadde and Cisco "Kid") as partners in an oil company. However, he knows if he does he no longer can hide his secret from them. As Chance debates quitting his ranch job to join his siblings, Shay Dumont breaks into the Calhoun family home to take from a safe her mother Blanche's wedding rings; her nasty mom was once married to Jack Calhoun whose son owns Southern Cross.

    Chance decides to help Shay learn who her father was. As they team up and fall in love encouraged by her feisty eight year old daughter Darcy, Chance wonders if it is time to tell his brothers the secret about their cherished late father he has concealed from them.

    The key to this engaging contemporary romance is the parents of the lead couple as they have left both emotionally fractured with doubts about relationships. With a strong support cast and entertaining character driven the story line, the first Hardin Boys tale is an enjoyable opening act.
