This book was a good mix of intrigue and romance. Started really well but deflated little by little as sexist comments and situations started to flourish here and there. I personally did not like how most women were represented (misrepresented?) here. Most female characters were portraited as trophy wifes or trophy wife wanna-be's, avid of gossip and ready to character assassinate and backstab other women. The only emancipated characters were the ex-wife and the heroine. The ex-wife is a university sociology professor described as a 'feminist' with the added label of being a cold and controlling B. She is even described as a Dominatrix in bed happy to whip her lovers. The heroine is a kindergarden teacher under complete control of his father, a US senator, who she adores although he is a selfish and controlling bastard. He even covers up for the man that rapes her, forbids her from reporting it to the authorities and destroys all the evidence to keep appareances. It was difficult for me to get past these extreme stereotypical views of women and sexist and degrading scenes. This is an insult to all women. The sad thing is that the story was good and did not need to portrait women this viciously. It is only because of this that I give it 3 stars. Otherwise I would have given it 1.

4 STARS (Vengeance in Texas)book 3 I liked A Billionaire's Redemption. It is a romantic suspense. I stayed up late to finsh reading it. I hated the characters that were so mean to Willa. Loved Willa & Gabe. Willa was a kindergarten teacher. Her father was a U.S. Senator who was murdered. Willa is a gentle women who was raped by a family friend. Her father the Senator kept her hidden till the bruises faded and destroyed any evidence, because he was in a close race. Willa had so many enemies. I don't know how she held up. Gabe is a billionaire who is an enemy of the Senator but not of Willa. When he sees Willa being pushed around he protected her. Someone kept breaking into where she was staying. Gabe ex-wife has been kidnapped. He is trying to find her because she does not have any family. I cared about Willa and wanted to see her safe. She is willing to do anything when her students lives are in danger. Gabe is goodlooking, smart and earned his money. He came from the wrong side of the tract. The old families with money don't like him but are willing to marry him for money. I really like the charitys he supposed. Things get really dangerous to Willa. She keeps in the background of her father's relection but now she can dress how she wants to and make her own decisions. There are still a lot of mysteries to be solved in the Vengeance in Texas series I was given the ebook to read and asked to give honest review from Netgalley.
