That Last Night in Texas by Ann Evans

It was supposed to be the most wonderful night of their young lives. Cassie McGuire was barely eighteen and ready to elope with the man of her dreams, when tragedy struck. With the new future now facing her, there was no way Cassie was going to saddle the adventurous Ethan Rafferty with a woman who might never ride again, much less walk. So she sent him away.

Cassie gets the shock of her life when Ethan returns to Texas. The sexy wrangler is as handsome as ever—but he'll be fit to be tied once he discovers her secret. Will he forgive her—or will he fight her for the son he didn't know he had?

About the Author

A lifelong procrastinator, Ann spent twenty years polishing up the same story. With a loving push from friends and family, she finally walked into a local Romance Writers of America meeting to find out how to submit her work to a publisher.

"I almost couldn't do it. I'm irrationally intimidated by women in hats, and one of the members was wearing a snazzy little red one that practically shouted Professional Writer. I was afraid they'd laugh me out of the room for daring to think my writing could be taken seriously. Lucky for me, they were a great bunch of people who made me feel right at home."

They also helped her to see all the things she was doing wrong--"like having no conflict and no plot." With the help of a strong critique group and generous fellow writers, Ann began to understand just how a book ought to be structured. A year later she won the Golden Heart from Romance Writers of America for Best Short Contemporary of 1989.

Since that time Ann has sold regularly to the Harlequin Superromance line. She swears she's not a slow writer, just a slow typist. Ann loves writing for the Harlequin Superromance series. "They publish the kinds of books I like to read, so what could have been a better match for me?"

Born and raised in Florida, Ann lives in Orlando where she continues the love/hate relationship with her computer. She adores bobbing around in the pool, hot fudge sundaes, collecting antique postcards and finding any excuse to travel.

She still hates hats and refuses to own one.

In the Beaumont, Texas area, thirteen years ago a horse trampled rancher Cassie McGuire on the night she was to elope with Ethan Rafferty. The eighteen year old Cassie believing her beloved deserves better, and ignoring Ethan's desires and denying him a choice, ended their relationship. Ethan returns offering to buy some land from Cassie. He wants to establish a training school for problem horses. Cassie tells him that he is the father of her son Donny. Outraged, that Cassie could hide this from him, Ethan demands being in Donny's life although Cassie's former husband Josh has raised the child as if he was the sire. As Cassie and Ethan renew their acquaintance, they realize they remain in love. This is a warm Texas ranch romance with a strong cast. The key to the tale is Josh who brings freshness to the often used not telling the dad he has a child plot; he does this by not being an evil miscreant but instead is a nice person who cares about his first wife and loves his second wife and Donny. Readers will enjoy Ann Evans's engaging second chance at love. Harriet Klausner
