Overview

The first book in New York Times and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear's TEXAS HEROES: The Marshalls series is a sexy, suspenseful wounded hero romance that will grab your heart and keep it racing.

Still haunted by failing to save his sister, the last thing former homicide detective Quinn Marshall wants is another woman to watch over when his brother asks him to help a friend. Soap opera star Lorie Chandler has already lost her husband to an obsessed fan, and now her son is the madman’s new target.

While the police hunt the killer, Quinn's rugged Texas ranch is the ideal hiding place for Lorie and her child. Neither Quinn nor Lorie expects the explosive heat or the powerful emotion that flares to life in his canyon refuge, yet there is no future for them and both are painfully aware that their time together can only be temporary. When the madman finds them, Quinn's sole focus is on keeping Lorie and the boy he's come to love safe, even though his success will mean that he will have to give them up to a life where he cannot belong.

Quinn's brother Josh's story is TEXAS STAR. The third book, TEXAS DANGER, is their cousin Case's story. All the Marshalls also appear in the Texas Heroes: The Gallaghers of Sweetgrass Springs series.
