Ok, I am a huge fan of anything fairy-tale related so this series? Amazing!!! I adore the Texas Ever After series, even though I forgot to review book 1, I totally suggest these books to young women 18 and up!

This book is about Samantha Dearing, the daughter of a wealthy cattle rancher who is determined to make her own story no-matter-what; and Asher Ellis, a broke ranch hand who is angry at the Dearing’s for kicking his step-family out of their home and determined to find his revenge. But when he breaks into Sam’s home to find proof of her families wrong doings, he instead finds a women filled with strength and hope. After being found he rushes out leaving behind one cowboy boot. Now Sam is trying to find her mystery man, while Asher is trying to find the secrets to the Dearing household. But neither one is prepared for the adventure in store for them…

This book was soooooo sweet! It had adventure, romance, and such a great focus on trusting God through every trial. The story is soooooooooo well written and I just adored the mystery and action in it. This novel would be so perfect for young ladies 18 and up looking for a clean, historical romance filled with hope, love and God’s grace!

Now there is some violence in this book. Mention of people getting shot, hurt. Mention of attempted murder and such. There is some some adult topics brought up that make the book not kid friendly. Mention of cheating, and getting pregnant. The topic is brought up but not described or explained. However, I just don’t think this series is a kid or teen series. 18 and up people!

Overall, I love this book! It was sooooo good, so fun and so well written! I totally suggest it and ladies who love a fun, interesting, historical novel would love this read!!! Have a beautiful spring! -The Young Llama Reader.

One fateful night will change their destinies forever. . . .

Convinced that his stepmother and half brothers have been wrongfully evicted by cattle king Eli Dearing, Asher Ellis uses the cover of an extravagant ball to break into the Three Cedars’ ranch house to search for proof. On the verge of discovery, he flees, but a boy’s cry compels him to make a daring rescue.

Spunky and independent Samantha Dearing balks when she learns the ball her father is hosting is nothing more than a matrimonial ambush. Taking a break from unwanted suitors, Samantha spots a thief fleeing her home. When the stranger ends up saving her brother’s life, she hides the only clue to his identity left behind–his boot–and resolves to find him herself.

When Samantha encounters the older brother of a student she tutors, all thoughts of the bootless mystery man vanish. Asher values family above wealth, a rare trait that opens her heart. Afraid she will discover his past misconduct, Asher tries to keep his distance, but when a series of suspicious accidents befall her, he vows to protect her, even though saving her life could mean losing her love.
