THE ONE WHO GOT AWAY…?

Texas millionaire Keith Owens loved his bachelor ways—until elegant and sophisticated Andrea O'Rourke came back to town. Years ago the sparks between them had nearly seared them both—but Andrea had left, swearing to forget the power of Keith's touch…

Now she'd returned, cool, calm and collected—until she caught Keith's possessive, passionate eye once more. This time, he swore she wouldn't escape him before he had his fill—but then he would release her.

Meet the Author



Jackie Merritt's first book was published in December of 1988, and since then she's been deeply engrossed in the writing game. While she's gone through dry spells, where she can't write a word that makes sense and every idea ends up in the trash can, for the most part she's usually working on a viable story.

Jackie honestly believes that anyone with a reasonable grasp of language and grammar can write a book--if they're self-disciplined enough to put in the time and effort that writing demands. Starting a book is easy; staying with it until it is finished is the part that stops many would-be authors. Jackie believes she had an advantage that a lot of people do not have. As a former accountant, she was used to working alone and completing long projects. Oddly enough, the same principles apply to writing.

Plus, of course, you have to love it. Jackie's first attempts to write fiction were so bad they were comical, but she still fell in love with writing. She had written hundreds of business letters before that, but never a word of fiction, and there, all of a sudden, was a whole new world for her to explore.

She had a great time since selling her first novel and many subsequent books, and is looking forward to many more good times ahead!

The Bachelor Takes a Wife by American author, Jackie Merritt is the fifth book in the Texas Cattleman’s Club: The Last Bachelor series. Widow Andrea O‘Rourke is dreading the Cattleman’s Ball. She has to go to accept the donation to her charity, New Hope, but she knows her old college flame will be there. Texas software millionaire, Keith Owens is the man who proposed business instead of marriage, breaking her heart eighteen years ago. But it seems that now he plans to woo her into his bed. This is not one of Jackie Merritt’s better romance novels. The heroine is a bit wishy washy, whole the hero is far too arrogant to be appealing. A bit disappointing.
