Overview

He'd woken up weeks ago in a seedy hotel room--with no memory and a suitcase filled with cash. "Luke" knew nothing of his past, the money or the killers who wanted it back. But with the reflexes of a cat burglar, the instincts of a fugitive and the deadly shot of a gunslinger, Luke couldn't trust the cops. Hannah Dawson was his only hope.

As a former cop, Hannah had devoted her life to putting away bad guys like the darkly sexy, mysterious stranger she was now attracted to--undeniably, inexplicably and helplessly. She was in danger herself, but was it from the killers on their trail...or from Luke?

Meet the Author

An award-winning, bestselling novelist, Ruth Glick writing as Rebecca York is the author of close to 80 books. Ever since she can remember, Ruth has loved making stories full of adventure, romance, and suspense. As a child she corralled her friends into adventure games or acted out stories with a cast of dolls. But she never assumed she could be an author, because she couldn't spell. Her life changed, however, with the invention of the word processor and spell checker--and the help of her husband who spots spelling errors from 50 paces.

In addition to her fiction career, Ruth is also an award-winning author of 12 cookbooks, although she admits that her first culinary adventure was a spectacular failure. At the age of three, she made a cake out of modelling clay and asked a friend to share it with her. They were both sick for a week.

When she married during the summer between her junior and senior years in college, she dazzled her new husband by making 40 different main dishes before repeating herself. The only failure was devilled crab. Because she had no cayenne pepper, she tried to compensate by using double the amount of black pepper. Her husband, who likes his food hot, ate the fiery dish anyway.

Ruth says she has the best job in the world. Not only does she get paid for spinning out her fantasies, she also gets paid for playing with food in the kitchen. Her creativity is further evident in the fabulous European-style garden she has designed and in the eclectic furnishings throughout her home.

Ruth's many awards include the 1998 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Harlequin Intrigue of the Year for Nowhere Man, and the 1998 Affaire de Coeur Choices des Critiques (Critics' Choice) Award for Best Contemporary Romance Novel, also for Nowhere Man. She has also won two Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times.

If left to her own devices, Ruth would stay home working on her novels. But every few months her husband pries her away from her word processor for a trip. They have travelled across the U.S. and Canada and frequently visit foreign locals. Their wanderings have taken them to the British Isles, Central and South America, France, Italy, Greece, and Tunisia.

Ruth makes a point of trying a wide range of foreign dishes, which often inspire recipes in her cookbooks. Many of her unique experiences find their way into her novels--like the time she encountered a coral snake in the Guatemalan jungle, taking a helicopter over a burning lava field, or a hot-air balloon flight.

Ruth holds a B.A. in American Thought and Civilization from the George Washington University and an M.A. in American Studies from the University of Maryland. She heads the Columbia Writer's Workshop, a group of writers who have been meeting every two weeks to critique each other's work for the past 25 years.

    Great Read

    This was a great read and a wild ride. We meet an intriguing man with no past and a woman with too much past in Luke and Hannah. From their first meeting on it was action and mystery. Who was this man with no memory? A good man as he seemed or a bad guy who ended up on the wrong side of a shady deal? The more you saw of him, sweet, trustworthy, wounded, the more you rooted for him to find out something good, but all that was being hampered by constant run ins with the bad guys. Attackers in the night, shootouts just about everywhere they ran to, bits of Luke's memory trying to surface, payoffs, deals, a million dollars, close calls, an explosion and the building relationship between them, you are pulled in from page one and held tight to the end. I couldn't put it down. The characters were layered and well rounded, the plot was never slow and the ending was sweetly satisfying. If you're looking for action, mystery and romance, you can't go wrong with this one.

    Enjoy

    The Man From Texas by Rebecca York reviewed by: Pamela Ackerson (author Home of the Braves trilogy) I have read this book before. It was excellent the first time and it was just as great the second time around. It is rare that I read a book again. What is even more odd is that it is a contemporary romance and I rarely read those types of books either. Which goes to tell you that The Man From Texas is an awesome read. I loved it. I finished it in one day, temporarily being interrupted by the need to cook dinner and feed my family and then went back to reading the book. This is a book you will not want to put down. Put on the tea and enjoy.
