A DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS NOVEL
NO SAD SONGS HERE, DARLIN'

Country music princess Starlet Brubaker has a sweet tooth for moon pies and cowboys: both are yummy-and you can never have just one. Now Beckett Cates may not be a cowboy, but he certainly has the heart, soul-and body-to whet her appetite. He's a sexy ex-Marine with a touch hotter than the scorching Texas sun and arms strong enough to catch her when she lands into trouble.

Playing bodyguard to America's sweetheart isn't easy for Beckett. But falling for her sure is. Unfortunately, Starlet has a reputation for keeping a guy or two wrapped around her finger and Beckett refuses to be anybody's backup. So now it's up to Starlet to prove that she's put her cowboy-crazy days behind her. Otherwise, she'll be singing solo instead of living in harmony with the man who's loved her even before her fame and fortune.

A cowboy and a country singer find love in Lane’s sweet, funny seventh Deep in the Heart of Texas contemporary (after A Match Made in Texas). Vocalist Starlet (yes, that’s her real name) Brubaker is kidnapped from one of her performances. The tough former Marine who rescues her is none other than Beckett Cates; he may be big and strong now, but Starlet remembers him as the skinny teen she nicknamed Becky. Beckett’s time in Afghanistan has changed him, but not made him immune to Starlet’s charms. As Beckett tries to protect Starlet, the two become lovers, but their blossoming romance is complicated by Starlet’s longstanding crush on Beckett’s brother. When Starlet goes missing again, Beckett realizes that he’ll do anything for her, even if she doesn’t love him. Humor is never in short supply, especially when Starlet revisits her aunt’s old whorehouse and the aging women who resided there. Subplots involving other residents of tiny Bramble, Tex., add dimension to this tender romance enlivened with a touch of mystery. (Dec.)
