Molly Forrester's never held a job longer than six months. Now it's do or die time. If she can't find something she's good at, she'll have to admit defeat and return to her father's household and end up marrying some man more interested in her father's bank account than his only daughter. This time she has to make it work! Yet a cook and housekeeper at a cattle ranch? Even she begins to doubt she can stay the course. Still--she's the seventh in six months. And it's her last chance.
Cynical and contemptuous
When his fiancée proves to be a gold-digging cheat, Josh Hart sends her packing and refuses to see any other woman in a different light. He'll leave romance to others. Falling for another woman is the last thing he'll do in this lifetime. He has a ranch to run. Unfortunately his long-time housekeeper left at the same time and over the last year six different women have quit or been fired. But to keep the cowboys on the ranch working, he needs a good cook--and soon.
Nothing about Molly Forrester convinces him she's the right one, but he has no other alternatives at the moment. She can stay--but just until he finds a woman of fifty who can cook and clean and stay out of his way. At least that's the plan at the start.

Molly needs a job and Josh needs a housekeeper. Molly really wants write a book and prove her father is wrong. Molly and Josh have been hurt my love. Will she be able to keep this job so she doesn't have to go back to her father's house? Will Josh keep her even though she sometimes gets lost and doesn't always get meals on the table? When Molly realizes she loves Josh and says I love you. Josh gets angry and turns her down and tells her to leave. How will this end? Nice romantic story. I enjoyed and couldn't put it down. Joy943
The third in the series, it’s good, but for me it’s not the best of the series. It is well written, with a great plot and believable characters but I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the first two. I found both Molly and Josh’s ‘quirks’ and personality traits to be frustrating and irritating rather than endearing as I did with the first two books. Josh changes his mind so fast it’s a surprise Molly hasn’t got whiplash, he pulls her in, pushes her away, pulls her in again, then runs for the hills, there is no wonder the poor girl is so dizzy. Despite it not being my favourite of the three I did enjoy it and I would love to read more in the series...there are plenty of support characters who need a HEA....it would be fun to watch Lance be brought to his knees, he spent so much of this book winding Josh up! So more please Barbara! I was sent an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I loved all the stories in this series so far but this one is my favorite. Josh is a handsome, bossy, and stubborn Texas cowboy. But, there is something about him that draws you in. "Reckless Heart" by Barbara McMahon is book number three in the "Harts of Texas" series. This is Molly Forrester and Josh Hart's story. Molly has taken a job at Josh's ranch as housekeeper and cook. Well, she hopes to convince him to give her the job. Molly is running from a controlling father and her ex-fiancé. She has to get this job and make it work until she can get her book published. Josh has gone through six housekeepers in the last six months. But, Molly isn't right for the job. She doesn't look like she has worked a day in her life. He doesn't have much choice so he makes sure Molly knows this is just temporary. Once the agency finds someone more suitable then she is gone or maybe not. I really loved this story. I fell in love with Josh and Molly's characters. The chemistry between Josh and Molly was really intense. Will they take a chance on love? Or will they allow emotional issues from their past to keep them from finding true happiness and love? I loved this series! Texas, cowboys, and ranches what's not to love. I loved the cowboys working at the ranch. Maybe Lance could get his own story or the start of a new series. The Harts of Texas Series "Rebel Heart" - Book 1 "Tangled Hearts" - Book 2 "Reckless Heart" - Book 3 I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed reading Josh's story! Josh has been hurt by a gold digger and swears he doesn't need love in his life! Then, Molly arrives at the Rafter C as his new housekeeper. They're both attracted to the other, but Molly has been hurt too. One-click this amazing book and see what all happens before we get to the HEA! I throughly enjoyed this whole series and I can't wait to read more from Barbara McMahon!
