In 1856 Hill Country Texas Teagen McMurray feels lonely as he runs Whispering Mountain Ranch. His brothers are married (see TEXAS PRINCESS and TEXAS RAIN) and his sister is away at school. However while he wants the love of a good woman, he also admits he enjoys the quietness of the spread.----------------- With the death of her rescuer and jailer husband Eli, Widow Jessica Barton flees Chicago with her three preadolescent daughters to escape the ¿incarceration¿ her in-laws plan for their late son¿s daughters. Leaving behind Barton Bookstore to Eli¿s avaricious family, she heads to Whispering Ranch and Eli¿s friend Teagan. The four females make it to the ranch where Teagan takes them in. He persuades his guest to marry for the sake of her kids. She agrees but both hide from the other they want more than a marriage of convenience as each is in love her from the time she read his letters to Eli back in Chicago and him from the moment the fearsome horde invaded his life and heart.------------- Though the theme has been used quite often, this is an enjoyable pre Civil War Texas romance as the lonely rancher and the frightened widow find love. Filled with passion and courage (trademarks of Ms. Thomas Texas tales), TALL DARK AND TEXAN is a warm historical.----------------- Harriet Klausner

if you are one of those people who dont like to read series of books, then this is one of the books for you. Pick up this book and its like you already read the first two books, you can do this with any of her books in this series, but since I read them all, I would really recommend that you read the series...
