Texas Pursuit is the second book in the Lone Star Intrigue Series.
A single mother is a target—and only one man can protect her.
Tired of waiting for the right man to start a family, Tanya flew halfway around the world alone to adopt her son. On the return flight, she was seated next to a man named Maurice and endured hours of his comments and innuendos. Once they landed in Dallas, he started stalking her—sending gifts, leaving voice mails, following her everywhere . . . finally forcing her to move.
Maurice hires private detective Sonny Mansfield, whose intentions were good when he agreed to help a client locate his missing “ex-wife” and kidnapped “son.” But watching Tanya with her little boy, Sonny realizes he’s made a terrible mistake by inadvertently leading danger back into her life.
Joining forces to defeat a madman, Sonny and Tanya can’t deny the attraction they feel for each other. But their love will be short-lived if they aren’t able to escape Maurice for good.
If you are looking for a fun, intriguing and faith based romantic suspense to read this summer, this book should definitely be on your list. Be forewarned-this storyline is addictive and you will want to read it one shot; I suggest finding a nice spot in the sun with some iced tea and settle in for an afternoon reading. It is not overly long so one day is sufficient if you block out the world like I did 🙂 My heart was beating, my fingernails were bitten to the quick, and I held my breathe on more than a few pages.
I would recommend reading this series in order, otherwise you will be lacking some important background information about the Mansfield brothers and what has brought them to this point in each of their lives. I liked that the struggles of the other two brothers were woven into this book because it allows the reader to have a sense of camaraderie with the character once they reach their book. Because family is such a central element in this storyline it is very intriguing to see the polarity between Tanya and Sonny’s parental relationships and how it affects their outlook on parenthood.
This book ended too soon for me, which attests to the connection readers make with the characters and how absorbing the storyline is. I do feel that the ending was a little rushed, but I am consoled with the fact that Sonny and Tanya will be back (at least as minor players) in the third and final installment of this series.
