Faith Thomas was running from her ex. She couldn't let the serial killer get custody of their daughter, Zoe. After seeing troublesome news in the paper and having her house ransacked, she knew she had to leave town. She was even more scared when she saw a man talking to Zoe at the library. Zoe was so cute when she helped customers at the library - acting like an adult employee. She was actually quite good at it. The man was undercover operative Léon Royce. It was his job to assess people so when he saw the terrified look on Faith's face he wanted to know more about it and help if he could. He didn't care if it meant blowing his cover. I almost stopped reading after the first few pages about the ex because he was so creepy but I'm glad I didn't. I really liked the characters (other than the ex). Faith and Léon were a couple whom I became fully invested in right from the start! And Zoe was so cute but did complicate things for them. How can you make a 5-year-old understand she can't contact anybody from her past because her father might find them? As I closed the book, I thought Oh My God. I loved this fast-paced romantic suspense and highly recommend it.

Faith Thomas had divorced her husband Burke, and while things were tense, Faith had not expected Burke to file for full custody. She fled to Carder, Texas, with her seven year-old daughter Zoe, in fear of being discovered. When her home and ransacked and upon seeing some disturbing news in the local paper, Faith knows she has to disappear permanently: Burke will not take no for an answer. Faith works in the library, often bringing her daughter, and when she sees Zoe talking with a stranger, Faith panics, which doesn’t escape Léon Royce’s vigilant eyes. He had been chatting amicably with Zoe, but he senses that Faith needs help, which he can provide. Léon understands only too well the need to become invisible: that’s what he’s been doing for several years in Texas, while working for the CTC, Covert Technology Confidential. From the very first pages, it’s easy to understand Faith’s terror: Burke is one scary dude! I admit I thought that the heroine’s ex being a psychopathic serial killer was a bit of overkill – if you will pardon the pun – but I liked how it contributed to make us see another facet of Faith’s personality. Léon also has quite an unusual past, and I found it interesting that, apart from Zoe, most characters wear masks: they all hide their true identity in one way or another, for various reasons. The romance between Faith and Léon progressed surprisingly realistically, and Zoe came across as remarkably normal. I appreciated how Robin Perini chose to portray how Zoe related to both her parents as well as Léon. LAST STAND IN TEXAS is a fast-paced romantic suspense, with a complex storyline and quite a bit of drama. The action never stops, and although it is book 10 in the Carder Texas Connections, it stands perfectly on its own. It’s heavy on the suspense, there are a few deaths but nothing gory, and I enjoyed that while the attraction between Faith and Léon was palpable and real, it never got in the way of the plot.
