My Review

Three years ago Charlotte Jarrett left her hometown of Royal, Texas after she broke up with Ross Edmond.  She returns home with her young son in the hopes she can repair her relationship with her estranged parents.  She’s more than stunned to come face to face with her old flame, Ross, an oil heir.  

Ross has no idea why Charlotte walked away from him three years ago but when he sees her son, he knows the boy is his and he intends to be a full time father.  Charlotte and Ross try to come up with an arrangement, but neither one can put their past differences behind them.  

It doesn’t take long for their old feelings to resurface.

The sparks fly in this romantic, emotional story.  Their love scenes are scorching hot.  I fell in love with both main characters immediately.  I could feel how tortured they were by their past.  I couldn’t help but feel their pain.  The author did a wonderful job of bringing this all to life.

It’s a fast-paced romance and family drama.  We were introduced to Ross’ siblings and best friend, so I’m thinking there will be a few more books in this series.  

Although the Texas Cattleman is a long-running series in the Harlequin line, this is the first book of a new sub-series.  I didn’t have to read the previous series to follow this book.  It’s all about Charlotte and Ross.  I’m looking forward to another visit to Royal, Texas.
