Overview

From New York Times bestseller and USAToday bestselling author Jean Brashear, a trilogy of romances rich with emotion, ripe with secrets, scandals and sexual tension.

Dalton Wheeler vanished from Morning Star, Texas nearly forty years ago under suspicion of murder, leaving behind him a trail of secrets, scandals and lives torn apart in the wake of his reported death. The woman he loved married another, and life went on.

Now the main characters in this tragedy are all gone, and in the wake of the final man's last will and testament, the past has roared back with a vengeance. Secrets will be revealed and the lives of four people will be shattered as they learn that who they are and where they come from is not at all what they always believed.

"Jean Brashear writes with warmth and emotional truth. The depth of her understanding of human nature marks her as a writer to watch."~Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Jean Brashear is a writer of rare talent."~Affaire de Coeur

Book 1 - TEXAS SECRETS

Up-and-coming chef Maddie Collins finds out that her father's life was a lie when she is bequeathed a family homeplace she never knew existed–by the husband of the only woman her father ever loved. Rugged horseman Boone Gallagher arrives back in Texas to discover that the father who drove him away has struck one last blow. The only place he's ever thought of as home now belongs to a woman who doesn't want it, and he must keep her there for thirty days--or it will be lost to them both.

"Hotter than a Texas July afternoon...a well-crafted story of families lost and found." ~Compuserve Romance Reviews

"The plot is catchy, the characters are sizzling, and the romance is unstoppable. Great story! I loved it and can't wait for the next two books." ~Rendezvous

"So many sparks between Boone and Maddie, it's a wonder the old house doesn't go up in flames...SPLENDID!" ~Bell, Book and Candle


Book 2 – TEXAS LONELY

After TEXAS SECRETS comes the story of Boone's brother Mitch, missing twenty long years...

Mitch Gallagher is a loner, down to the bone. Banished at sixteen from everything and everyone he held dear, he's an intensely private man whose rusty, unused heart long ago gave up on love. Fragile Perrie Matheson is on the run to protect her beloved son. Too ill to travel further with a winter storm on the way, she has no choice but to gamble her child's safety on a man who wants only to be left alone.

But during days spent together in the mountain cabin, Mitch and Perrie each find surprises in store...and all the reasons they should stay apart battle with the yearnings of hearts too long denied love.

"By the time I had finished the third page, I knew I was in the hands of a pro." ~The Romance Reader

"May all women have a lover as gifted as Mitch: he is a 6 star lover on a 5 star scale. YUMMY!" ~Compuserve Romance Reviews

"This is a story for all romantics. Ms. Brashear has done what she does best, and makes her readers fall in love with two more wonderful characters." ~AOL

Book 3: TEXAS BAD BOY

The final book in the TEXAS HEARTS trilogy...

Everyone thinks Lacey DeMille is the next thing to royalty, a society girl with beauty, brains and money--but bad boy Devlin Marlowe knows better. Twenty years after being exiled in disgrace for daring to want her, the boy from the wrong side of the tracks has sweet revenge in his grasp...for only he knows that her whole life is built on a lie.

And revenge may be more costly than either of them can imagine.
