Someone wants the valuable software Anna’s developing and King Sanders is determined to keep her safe even if she insists that she doesn’t need another bodyguard. Neither Anna nor King is prepared for just how wild Texas can get or just how hard they’re willing to fight to stay together… An accidental meeting starts this thrilling story off in a romantic way that has readers sighing over ‘knights on white horses’ and then they can only sigh some more as these strong, vivid characters fight to stay together. The romance between King and Anna is delightfully sweet and full of magnetic chemistry that has sparks flying in every direction while the relationship has a few obstacles and some emotional turmoil for the most part this romance is in the right place and right time to turn into that everlasting kind of love. The fast pace of this story keeps readers glued to the pages as it builds thrilling suspense up to heart pounding proportions and readers can’t help but become caught up in all the excitement as the bad guys try their best to steal Anna’s million dollar idea. With some surprising twists, a cave full of bats and an enemy with some serious delusions, there is never a dull moment to be found in this thrilling Lone Star romance that sets hearts aflame.

King Sanders, the sexy billionaire rancher from Gerry Bartlett’s Texas Heat series, is back with his own book! Anna Delaney, a tech whiz who moved from Boston to Austin, is in danger because of a computer program she’s created. Although King thinks he’s just helping her recover from heat stroke, before long they’re on the run from bad guys who will stop at nothing to steal the software. Filled with action, chemistry and romance, Texas Lightning is a book you won’t want to put down until you’ve read the last page.

I love Gerry Bartlett's works so much. I haven't read her Texas books so this was a nice introduction to them. It had excellent suspense and kept me guessing as to who was behind things until it was revealed but there was so much more to the book than that. The characters were typically well-written and were developed whether they were main characters or not. Gerry Bartlett doesn't put someone on paper without giving them the same attention as she would the main characters. I found myself reading aloud at parts and staying up until I finished. The dialogue was realistic and I liked that the love interest wasn't necessarily into the same thing as the main character but wasn't upset that the best friend geeked out with the heroine. Thank you to Gerry Bartlett, Kensington Books, Lyrical Liaison, and NetGalley for the chance to read this amazing story and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.

Action-packed romantic suspense that caught my interest from the beginning and held it to the end. Anna Delaney has taken a break to get outside away from her computer job for a bit only to find that January in Texas is MUCH warmer than it is in Boston. With heat stroke and fainting likely she is saved from face-planting by none other than King Sanders. Soon after they meet it becomes apparent that there is someone out to get their hands on the computer program Anna has been working on for years. With her safety in mind and her boss’s agreement she is taken to King’s home. As the book unfolds at least one of her brothers is called in, her friend is kidnapped, her life and others as well as the software she is working on are all imperiled. Who is behind the dastardly deeds is eventually found out and by the end I was satisfied but then eager to find out what will happen with more than one of the supporting characters. This is the first book I have read by this author but do look forward to reading the next in this series as soon as it is written. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Publishing-Lyrical Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

Action and adventure will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages. Fans of Gerry’s Texas Heat Series will recognize our favorite billionaire cowboy King Sanders, who rushes to our heroine’s aid on page one and never leaves her side as we take off on a wild ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. (Warning: Don’t start this book late at night if you plan on getting any sleep!) Anna Delaney is a computer programmer with a life-saving new program that will revolutionize the pharmaceutical industry and save lives – but in The Wrong Hands, it could be deadly. Smothered by her large, loving family, the Boston native was thrilled to sell her program to a Texas Conglomerate and move to Austin. After months of round-the-clock coding, the promise of snow clouds on the horizon interrupts the coding-coma she’s fallen into and she takes a much needed break to explore her new home. But this is Austin. Not Boston. And those weren’t snow clouds. Native Texan, King Sanders quickly recognizes the signs of heat stroke when he sees Anna at the state capital. He rushes to her aide and thus begins the ride of his life. The Wrong Hands recognize that Anna’s program is worth billions on the black market and will do anything to force Anna to reveal the encryption code that protects her work. Anna, herself, is safe because they need her skills – but everyone she cares about is in danger. Because the encryption code isn’t enough. Anna has to tweak and finalize her program before it will work. Who will be captured? Who will be maimed? Who will die? Can King keep Anna safe? Just how far is he willing to go for a woman he’s only known for hours? Gerry Bartlett delivers another 5 star mystery. NOTE TO AUTHOR: Gerry, how long do we have to wait to get Scarlett’s story? If you are not at the keyboard working on it RIGHT NOW – why not? Please hurry!
