Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Callahan (a pseudonym for Texas-born author Jeffery McClanahan, coauthor of Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash and others as Dixie Cash) drops a sizzling romance into the wilds of West Texas. Judith Ann "Jude" Strayhorn, the smart, beautiful heir of the Strayhorn Circle C ranching dynasty, plans to purchase a deceased neighbor's ranch, only to find it's been left to Brady Fallon, one of her father's newest cowhands, who refuses to sell. Jude and Brady's friendship takes an intimate turn, but their budding romance cools in the face of class realities, even when Jude's father offers Brady a challenging job that frequently brings the lovers together. McClanahan's knowledge of the complexities of ranching and her multifaceted character development, swift pacing and sensuous love scenes set this western romance well above its contemporaries. (Jan.)

    Borrrrrrring

    When I read the back of this book I expected it to be a really good read well...it wasn't. It was so hard for me to get into that I almost put it down immediately, but I managed to force myself to keep reading. I felt like there was way too many details about ranching that I got the gist of in about two sentences, but she kept going on and on. I like the characters, but at times it was a little ridiculous that I'm supposed to believe a 29-year-old woman is so sheltered and naive to the world. I didn't find the dialogue between the two of them interesting, it felt too labored. "Can I ask you a question?", got really old. I'm sure some people really loved this book, but I could barely get through the agonizingly slow story.

    fabulous contemporary ranch romance

    In West Texas three generations of Campbell-Strayhorn blood own the Circle C Ranch. Grandpa may be the family patriarch, but his son J.D. runs the spread while his granddaughter Jude looks forward to soon take over from her dad. However, the two men in her life prefer Jude to marry and raise the next generation, preferably males.<BR/>---<BR/>Independent and upset with her dad and granddad, Jude buys the nearby 6-0 ranch to prove to her chauvinistic kin she can run a spread. However, she finds a stranger nesting on her new property; to her chagrin, recently divorced Brady Fallon makes her warm all over until he asserts he inherited the ranch she just bought. Brady is attracted to Jude, but he is coming off of a nasty divorce and knows better than to fool around with the daughter of his neighbor, who has given him a job that he needs to bring in money to restore the 6-0 ranch. As J.D. mentors Brady to replace him at Circle C, her daddy breaks Jude¿s heart again.<BR/>---<BR/>LONE STAR WOMAN is a fabulous contemporary ranch romance that is kept fresh by the lifestyle depth of the three generations of Campbell-Strayhorn¿s. The storyline us fast-paced as Brady struggles between loyalties and Jude by betrayal by the three men in her life. Readers will appreciate this fine Texas tale starring a strong female and three chauvinists who love her but fail to give her the chance she deserves.<BR/>---<BR/>Harriet Klausner

    LONE STAR WOMAN

    I like to read books about Texas, written by Texans. You know the author knows what they are writing about, when sudden, very severe storms and ranching problems are included in the plot. This book is not disappointing. Lone Star Woman is about beautiful people and beautiful horses. Both are very free spirited. This book is a good read with steamy romance and dangerous situations to hold your interest. I cannot wait to read Sadie Callahan¿s next book about this Texas ranching family.

    Wonderful Characters & Setting

    I loved this book. I loved the setting and I loved the characters (Jude and Brady). I quite enjoyed the slow and complex development of Jude and Brady's relationship. I did have some issues with how Jude handled her father's and grandfather's expectations, but I'm not certain what else she could have done. I wish the ending had been more definitive, but the author has said this is the first book in a trilogy. I hope that Jude and Brady show up again in the second book.

    Impressive...

    A very engaging novel. I got a bit confused when it came to the details of ranching history and biological information regarding horses, but I learned plenty. The plot was perfect and realistic.
