Daniel McLain is a man of God, raising his twin girls in the newly- developed and dangerous town of Jefferson, Texas. When he appeals to his family for help, Daniel expects a family member to arrive and help him. What he doesn't expect is a distant cousin who's travelling companion is "bad luck." Upon arriving on a steamboat in the most unusual way, Karlee learns that although the Civil war is over, there are those who still want to fight, and endanger lives. Pleasing her employer and keeping the three-year-olds safe isn't going to be easy.

It is important to read these stories in order. Why? Daniels story actually starts in book one, THE TEXANS TOUCH. Daniels first wife, May, dies during childbirth, leaving a 20 year-old man to raise an identical pair of twin girls.

Because of Jodi Thomas description of Daniels grief in the first book, I knew his story (book 3) would be fascinating. Theres a telling interchange between Daniel and Karlee (Mays cousin, who has come to help tend the children).

Karlee asks what the twins names are. Daniel replies, I just call them twin. Karlee goes on the attack, like a warrior-mother. You mean you havent named your daughters? Theyre almost 4 by my account, and you still call them twin? Daniel forced himself not to step back with her advance and said, Ive been busy.

I didnt know whether to laugh or cry; Daniel has been doing his best, but he grew up as the youngest of 3 sons with no sisters. Hes still grieving the loss of May and trying to provide for his family.

Daniel finds himself in a whirlwind of trouble in Jefferson, Texas where a group of undying loyalists to the Confederate cause are fighting the injustices of Reconstruction (at the hands of the Union soldiers assigned to the area).

This is a richly woven love story of a man who needs more help than he knows and a woman who grew up as an unwanted orphan in Mays extended family.

This is an action-driven story that I couldnt put down until I finished it. Enjoy!
