About the Author

KARI LYNN DELL brings a lifetime of personal experience to writing western romance. She is a third-generation rancher and rodeo competitor whose family ranch in northern Montana is located on the Blackfeet Nation, within spitting distance of the Canadian border and on the doorstep of Glacier National Park. She exists in a perpetual state of rodeo-induced poverty with her husband, son, Max and Spike the Cowdogs, a few hundred cows and too many horses (as if there is such a thing). Between graduating from Montana State University and moving back to live with her parents, she spent twenty years wandering from Texas to South Dakota to eastern Oregon, working mostly as a high school athletic trainer like Grace McKenna, the heroine of Mistletoe in Texas.

Five years ago, at their friends Violet and Joe's wedding Wyatt Darrington and Melanie Brookman realised that they had off the charts chemistry, sadly they also both had large intellects and tremendous tempers and realised that any relationship between them would inevitably crash and burn, destroying their relationships with Violet and Joe forever. So they agreed to step back, walk away and never cross that line. And in five years they never have, they goad one another incessantly on the rare occasions they do meet but no more. And since Wyatt threatened to have Mel's kid brother Hank blacklisted in every rodeo in the USA Mel feels more dislike than anything else. Then Mel discovers she has been betrayed in the worst way possible and burns her bridges with gusto, luckily Violet and Joe call Wyatt to help her out - I mean an omniscient billionaire with connections is always handy to have in your back pocket, right? Feeling like she's made a deal with the devil (and possibly endangered her heart) Mel agrees to work for Wyatt in Oregon in return for his help in tracing Hank, who has disappeared without a trace. Wyatt realised a long time ago that it wasn't lust he felt for Melanie, but recent events have meant that he is keeping devastating secrets from her, and lying about it. It's pure torture working with a a woman who lights up his world when he knows at any second that she will discover the truth and leave him forever. Wyatt has been ever-present in the last three novels and really deserved his own HEA. I wasn't sure if Kari could pull this off, so often the greatest characters fall flat in the romance stakes, but I needn't have worried. Wyatt's secret is a doozy and he HAS TO keep it a secret from Mel but ho boy do those sparks fly! Great romance, worth the wait ... now do I want to read Hank's story? I'd rather read Gil's.

Fearless in Texas is just as good a book as the first three in the Texas Rodeo series. This is Wyatt and Melanie's story and it was a fun one to read. This book can be read without reading the other books in the series but I think it is better if you have read the first three. In the past books I didn't dislike Wyatt, but I found him a little bit off putting. He is someone who seemed to think he always knew best and he didn't care if you disagreed with him, he'd just manipulate the situation until it turned out the way he wanted it. In this book, he is much more likable. He is not really someone who sees himself as infallible in his judgement, as much as someone who cares deeply for the people around him and is unable to stop himself from trying to help if he can. Melanie is likable from the past books and is very likable in this book too. She is someone who has worked hard for her success and keeps driving herself, even when she is unsure that it is all worth it in the end. She has spirit and cares deeply for her family and friends as well. I enjoyed the relationship development between the characters and I loved the secondary characters as well. I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I will not restate the plot nor reveal any spoilers in this review. KARI LYNN DELL has written a true gem. This novel is long but not cumbersome nor is the storyline rushed. It unfolds at a good pace with a descriptive narrative that creates mental pictures of the surroundings. The author has taken the time to develop characters that you can relate to as you immerse yourself into their stories. The interactions between Wyatt and Melanie are both humorous and poignant. The plot is believable and leaves you satisfied with the ending. Although there is one issue not fully resolved in this book, it does not take away from the HEA ending nor leaves you unsatisfied. There was romance, family drama and low-key sex scenes which I found refreshing in its context.

What a wonderful feeling to discover an author who charms you with her exquisite writing, her outstanding storytelling abilities, and utterly unforgettable characters! Melanie Brookman and Wyatt Darrington had last met five years ago while attending a wedding. The air surrounding them crackles with their attraction, and what might have happened if Wyatt had let them, if he didn’t live in Oregon, she in Texas, if it weren’t for her brother Hank … Melanie was a champion roper who drifted into a marketing career, and doing right by her brother Hank has defined the paths she has chosen all her life. She is fierce, driven, and when her legendary temper gets the best of her, Wyatt offers her a temporary job in exchange for providing her with answers as to Hank’s whereabouts. Wyatt is a fabulous hero: he is pushing forty, a golden boy who has succeeded at almost everything he does, except his personal life, and his backstory was unlike any I have read before. He exudes charm, yet he is a man of few words who has a tendency to retreat into himself when cornered. He is burdened by secrets, and stuck in all sorts of convoluted relationships. Melanie must have been a very difficult heroine to write; a touch more and she would have been unpleasant, but Ms. Dell’s mastery made it so that she wasn’t. Melanie is incredibly real, flawed, and ever so relatable with her short fuse and sharp tongue; she is also somewhat older than we are used to: she is thirty four. What amazed me almost immediately was the exceptional quality of the writing: Ms. Dell’s uniquely descriptive voice bring every setting into sharp focus: I could see that blue sky, the chill in the air, the rodeo life, the animals, images crystal-clear in my mind. The dialogues seem to originate naturally from the characters themselves, seemingly without any outside intervention. Every word was perfect, every sentence enchanting, every paragraph riveting; the whole narrative infused with intelligence and genuine emotion. FEARLESS IN TEXAS is as intricately crafted as the best murder mystery, with a plot twist towards the end I never expected. It was a very daring move from the author, whom I applaud for this realistic turn of event. FEARLESS IN TEXAS is such relief from the banality of most contemporary romances these days. Although it is book four in the Texas Rodeo series, as you can see, it stands perfectly on its own, but when I think at what I missed prior to FEARLESS IN TEXAS, I could just cry! And to say that I cannot wait for the next book in this series would be a major understatement, because it will be epic!

Melanie and Wyatt have a history. From acquaintances to enemies, attraction has always meandered in the shadows. Their issues reach the boiling point when secrets start to reveal themselves little by little. What seems complicated is relatively simple, if these fighters give up the battle and surrender to their hearts. Ms. Dell checks all the boxes for any romance lover. Tempting, engaging, feel good read.
