With a wife he adores and a baby on the way, life is great for Chase Tyler. Then tragedy strikes when Tanya and their unborn child are killed. A grief stricken Chase pushes his family away and abandons the family business to start riding on the rodeo circuit and drinking himself into oblivion. Real Estate Broker Marcie Johns was driving Tanya to look at a house the day of the accident. Even though she didn't cause the accident, she feels responsible. Marcie has known Chase since childhood and wants to help him get his life back in order. When she sees him get injured during a rodeo, she follows him to the hospital and eventually bullies him into going home to his family.

As Chase realizes that Tyler Drilling is barely staying in business, he devotes his time to trying to save it. Marcie offers him a deal. She will give him the money to pay off the creditors if he will marry her. Taking her up on the deal just may be the best thing that ever happened to him.

This is the second book in Brown's Texas series. I read it over 20 years ago and decided to revisit it on audio. Colleen Marlo does a great job as narrator of the audiobook.

Chase is a tortured hero who wallows in his grief. Marcie has loved Chase from afar since childhood, and decides she is the woman who can straighten him up. I enjoyed their various battles where Marcie would verbally kick his butt and get him back on track. I thought the whole marriage of convenience storyline was a bit over the top. It made Marcie look desperate to win Chase no matter what she had to do. From that point the story was predictable with no surprises, as Chase realizes his feelings for Marcie. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

This was a very sexy story with such a great plot, I truly didn't want it to end. Too bad there couldn't have been more titles in this series, they were all so very good!

A well written love story. Even with a predictable plot, Sandra Brown can really spin a tale.

Book 2 of the trilogy:
Marcie Johns has loved Chase Tyler since grade school, but, being the class brain, knew she didn't have a chance with the handsome boy who called her Goosey. Years later, she has been retained by Chase and his wife, Tanya, to find the couple a house. When Tanya is killed in the car Marcie is driving, the bereaved Chase goes on the skids and it is Marcie who sobers him up, gets him back into the failing family oil business, offers a loan, proposes marriage. Marcie's machinations are misunderstood by Chase.

This slick contemporary romance focuses on a second member of the Texas Tyler family, the clan first seen in Texas! Lucky . It is a switch on the hoary scenario of boy loves girl, loses girl, wins girl: in these feminist times it is the girl (here a woman with her own real estate agency) who does the loving, the losing and the winning. Marcie Johns has loved Chase Tyler since grade school, but, being the class brain, knew she didn't have a chance with the handsome boy who called her Goosey. Years later, she has been retained by Chase and his wife, Tanya, to find the couple a house. When Tanya is killed in the car Marcie is driving, the bereaved Chase goes on the skids and it is Marcie who sobers him up, gets him back into the failing family oil business, offers a loan, proposes marriage. Marcie's machinations are misunderstood by Chase, adding a modicum of interest to an overly formulaic plot. The novel climaxes with Marcie and Chase in bed, where "the pleasure was immense. Overwhelming. Ecstasy eddied around him in shimmering waves that matched the tempo of her gentle contractions." Apparently Brown intends to immortalize the Tylers in a trilogy, which should please those seeking hard-bound counterparts to the Ewings of Dallas.

Great story! Maybe the best in the Texas Trilogy!
Chase is a big, brooding, dominant Texan who did not
know he was capable of another love in this lifetime.
Marcie is strong, independent, & determined. They are
truly perfect for each other despite the hardships surrounding them. Very dramatic story w. a wonderful
ending.

This is the second book in the TEXAS! trilogy. I enjoyed it also, but not quite as much as the first. This one dealt with Chase, the eldest brother. Other than his problems being different, it was much the same. he was a bigger jerk than Lucky, but he had his reasons.

I'm looking forward to the third book. It will deal with the younger sister in the family. A little estrogen is needed after the brothers! I am enjoying the trilogy.
