An intelligent young woman, Jude Strayhorn wants to break free of her family’s control over her life. She has ideas for her family ranch, the Circle-C, but her father and grandfather refuse to listen. Her plans for buying a neighboring ranch go belly-up when the heir shows up to claim his inheritance.
Brady Fallon is a man who is looking to rebuild his life along with the ranch where he spent his boyhood summers. The place that holds his fondest memories has fallen into great disrepair and, with money being tight, Brady has to take a job working at the Circle-C. It looks like the boss’ daughter might prove to be a problem.
With the men in her life trying to get her married and producing babies, Jude is hitting a point of rebellion. Wanting to have more responsibility with the management of the Circle C, Jude feels betrayed when her father offers the job to Brady. Jude’s thoughts turn to beginning her own operation, but without Brady’s help, she cannot make it happen. Will Jude turn her back on her family to make her point clear?
A story about a woman with brains and spirit, Lone Star Woman delivers a powerful punch. Heart touching and heart wrenching rolled up into one package; a reader will find their emotions being pulled in every direction. Jude is so headstrong and determined, but Brady helps keep her rational and steady. I felt Jude’s disappointment in her father’s decision. The night she spent with Brady caused my toes to curl. Ms. Callahan delivers a book overflowing with romance and sensuality.
