Bret of the Cowboy series. I really enjoyed this book. The personality of Bret was suprising after the earlier discriptions. Emily was no meek miss and seems to have met her match in Bret.

A TEXAN'S HONOR continues "The Cowboys Series" with author Leigh Greenwood introducing his readers to another one of Jake and Isabelle Maxwell's motley crew of orphans. To his credit, the author does manage to write this novel as a "stand alone" story and although, Greenwood does allow some Maxwell family history to flow, he does not drown a "new" reader - "family" control is at a premium.

Bret Nolan was born and was raised a proud Texan. His mother had married out of her class and when she died, Bret was a child. A small child who hadn't done anything wrong, but a child no one wanted. His boyhood turned into manhood and Bret finally went to Boston to confront his mother's family, the family who had turned their backs on him. Now, he would prove them wrong; Bret Nolan was worth wanting. For six long years, he slaved behind a Boston desk, trying to impress, trying to be accepted. Finally, he had his chance. His mission: bring Texan heiress Emily Abercrombie to Boston. The conditions: if he failed, stay in Texas!
Emily Abercrombie grew up surrounded by love, friends, and acceptance. She had been rich all her life and she had no idea what it was like to be poor and unwanted. Yet, for the first time, Emily faced uncertainty. Her father was dying. With time running out, her loving frail parent wanted her to find a husband, someone who would take care of her. However, Emily wanted love not guardianship; she wanted someone who wanted more than her inheritance!

Two very different people, yet two people who were very attracted to each other. Whenever Emily was near, Bret lost control; for the first time in his life someone truly understood him, someone truly needed him. Yet, Emily would never go to Boston and Bret knew he was not the kind of a husband she needed. She was a rich, privileged heiress and he was a poor man with a past. Bret offered Emily support and he made her feel safe. Yet, at the same time, he made her feel guilty for having had an easy life. Emily knew Bret was unsatisfied with his life in Boston, but was he so unsatisfied to remain in Texas

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this, as the blurb in the back did not interest me at all, so much so that I almost did not bother reading this. Surprised to find myself NOT skimming parts of this, as I did with quite a few in this series, and so taking longer to finish this than I did the others. The romance and character development were more well-thought out than average, with more honest dialogue between protagonists, as well as with secondary characters. Bret was such a minor character in the first book of the series (The Cowboys) that I had forgotten his existence. I was glad to really enjoy his story.

Bret Nolan had never gotten used to the confines of the city. The sprawling buildings, the rumbling wagons, even the roads: all seemed designed to lock him in. He would always be a cowboy at heart and his restless blood still longed for the open range. And he was on his back to the boundless plains of Texas to escort a relunctant heiress to Boston-on his way to pick up a woman destined to be a dutiful wife. But Emily Abercrombie wasn't one to agree to anything easily and she wasn't about to just up and leae her ranch in Texas to move to an unknown city. And the more time Bret spent with the determined beauty, the more he realized he wanted to be the man, the only man, in Emily's life. Now he just had to show her the true honor found in the heart of a cowboy.
