The Lone Texan by Jodi Thomas
April selection for Barnes and Noble Romance Readers group.
The tall, dark hero pictured on the cover coupled with the "She's always been his destiny" snippet led me to think this would be just another toss-away romance. To my surprise, there was a good deal of story to read about a hero and heroine with background and character depth. A good secondary character story added to the enjoyment of this book.
Rating: 3/5 (Romance Scale)
Update: The B&N Group met last night (April 5) to discuss The Lone Texan which received a unanimous thumbs up. Everyone enjoyed the secondary character story and felt that there was a lot to the story--a nice change from 250+ pages of will-they/won't-they get together (even though the happily ever after is a given in the romance genre).
