Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Turquoise Sanchez is a spoiled young lady. Raised by an indulgent guardian, Trace Durango, she has never wanted for anything. Although she’s incredibly rude to Rio Kelly, a poor but proud blacksmith, she’s kind and gracious to wealthy, powerful Senator Edwin Forester. Unfortunately, the Durangos have a decades-long feud with the Foresters, so Turquoise has to sneak around to see Edwin. Trace, of course, wants her to hook up with Rio. Although Gentry’s (Diablo, 2010) premise of Romeo and Juliet in the Wild West is a good one, and her background story of St. Patrick’s Brigade is a fascinating one, this book isn’t up to her usual, high standards. For example, her hero and heroine make love in red oleander, which is highly poisonous. --Shelley Mosley

Rio is a man used to getting what he wants and right now he wants Turquoise Sanchez. Turquoise doesn't believe she is good enough for Rio. She comes from a poor family and has had to struggle for everything she has. She thinks Rio should have more than what she can bring to his life, but Rio doesn't let status determine who he loves. He just has to convince Turquoise that status doesn't mean anything in the game of love. When a powerful man tries to come between them, what will happen when Rio must protect Turquoise with his life.

Rio by Georgina Gentry is the eighth book in the Texans series. I would suggest reading these books in order as it makes some back stories easier to understand. Turquoise is a kind, caring person. Her only fault is a preconceived idea of her self-worth, that she isn't worthwhile because she was born poor. She thinks she has to marry inside her class. But really that is just in her mind, not Rio's. Rio is a very strong man; he comes from money but has the attitude he can love whomever his heart tells him he can. I like that he is a strong alpha male who can see the person inside verse the money they come from. I would highly recommend this series as it offers up some unforgettable danger, adventure, hot sex and even hotter cowboys.

In 1876 in the Austin area, Turquoise Sanchez knows her bloodline and her name are handicaps in her quest to marry an upper class Texan who cherishes and loves her. She ignores her spitfire personality as being hot blooded for that elite gentleman to appreciate. Turquois believes she has found her man in renowned State Senator Edwin Forester. However, her family objects profusely as they do not want the politician to water down their blood.

Vaquero Rio Kelly agrees with Turquois' family assertion as he wants to be her mate. The four-leaf clover tattoo he has on him just adds to Turquois' belief the poor vaquero is not good enough for her; but when she dreams and daydreams he is the star. However, neither she, her family or her beloved vaquero reckon with how ruthless a state senator can be when he wants something.

The second Texans historical romance (see Diablo) is an engaging tale in which fans of Georgina Gentry also will welcome the return of the extended Durango clan. The story line is loaded with action but driven by a somewhat irritating spoiled "princess" who must choose between her image of her beloved and the reality of her beloved. Fast-paced, readers will enjoy Rio though it is more Turquois' tale.
