Duel and Jessie McClain's Marley Rose is all grown up. When she finds a more dead than alive Roan Penny and brings him to the Aces & Eights, lives are forever changed.
I can always count on Linda Broday's storytelling to take me on a special journey. In To Catch A Texas Star, I met characters I loved and those I hated, adventurous twists and turns, laugh out loud moments, beautiful scenery, friendship and loyalty. There was also injustice, unfairness, prejudice and evil. Most powerful of all was the underlying message of love's triumph over the darkness of hate and true love remains undefeated.
The romance level is whirlwind and sweet, but it's real and touching and progresses perfectly with the overall plot. Abandoned by his no-good father, Roan is drifting through life, trying to find his special place in the world. Surrounded by a loving family, Marley is trying to find her wings to be her own woman with time to explore her writing and painting talents. When their worlds collide, I have no doubt you will agree that these two are a match made in Texas.
But this romance is threatened by greed, lies, and pure evil. The danger escalates when Roan tries to vindicate the murder of his friend and ends up poking a snake pit of hate, violence, and ulterior motives. Linda Broday does an amazing job of juxtaposing the beautiful story of a budding romance with an evil man threatening to destroy Marley for his own gain and destroy Roan because he keeps getting in his way.
An extremely compelling aspect in To Catch a Texas Star is the idea of orphan children who simply need someone to love and care for them. It's that simple. Marley's parents have a houseful of such children, and their love for each other and these children is bottomless. On the flip side, someone with revenge on the mind uses young boys to terrorize and kill and everything in between so that a ranch can be rebuilt with stolen cattle. And someone wants to reclaim a grown child to carry out a despicable and dastardly plan. This comparison between good and evil is stark and shows the reality of how some people offer children unconditional love and how other people use children as a cruel means to an ugly end.
If you think this Texas romance is pure fluff and kisses, think again. Yes, there are plenty of kisses and...well...love, but it's the children who will steal your heart, and it's the people who truly love them and rescue them who will restore your faith in the world.
The characters are extremely well developed, and the plot is engaging and exhilarating, with a twist that pops up when a secret is revealed. You won't want to miss that!
To Catch a Texas Star is the third book in the Texas Heroes series. I suppose one could get away with reading it standalone, but I did enjoy it best after at least having read the first book that starts it all.
So, yes, Marley Rose is grown up. Reared in a lovely, generous and giving large family thanks to Jessie’s continued need to bring home orphaned or abandoned children. Marley lives alone in her own place on the ranch and helps. The story gets going when she encounters Roan Parrish left along the side of the road after he watched someone he was closer to than family get killed for his land and then Roan drug behind horses and left for dead. He now has an enemy to find and make pay for what was done to Mose and what is happening to many others in the region.
I was so curious to see who would become Marley’s hero and I loved Roan from the start. He has his mind set on dealing with what the villain’s started, but his love for Marley grows and he is so good for her. He has his own tough past as the son of an outlaw. He’s tough and determined, but protective and such a great hero. Marley has grown into a woman to ride the river with and proves herself during the tough times that are come for the McClains because of an evil enemy to them and Roan.
This book gave the reader so much. All my emotions were touched even some great fun times, especially with Granny, all the way to a teary-eyed moment. Exciting western action and even a mystery are tossed in for good measure, but overall that is the romance that was delectable and the strong sense of McClain family love that pulls in Roan, too.
All in all, I couldn’t have been more pleased with this one especially since my expectations were high in anticipation of Marley Rose’s story. Western Historical Romance fans can’t go wrong with this author’s books, but particularly this book/series. Love the McClains and was sorry to see the end of this book.
