By MaryGrace Meloche on July 10, 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A TEXAN'S HONOR continues "The Cowboys Series" with author Leigh Greenwood introducing his readers to another one of Jake and Isabelle Maxwell's motley crew of orphans. To his credit, the author does manage to write this novel as a "stand alone" story and although, Greenwood does allow some Maxwell family history to flow, he does not drown a "new" reader - "family" control is at a premium.

Bret Nolan was born and was raised a proud Texan. His mother had married out of her class and when she died, Bret was a child. A small child who hadn't done anything wrong, but a child no one wanted. His boyhood turned into manhood and Bret finally went to Boston to confront his mother's family, the family who had turned their backs on him. Now, he would prove them wrong; Bret Nolan was worth wanting. For six long years, he slaved behind a Boston desk, trying to impress, trying to be accepted. Finally, he had his chance. His mission: bring Texan heiress Emily Abercrombie to Boston. The conditions: if he failed, stay in Texas!

Emily Abercrombie grew up surrounded by love, friends, and acceptance. She had been rich all her life and she had no idea what it was like to be poor and unwanted. Yet, for the first time, Emily faced uncertainty. Her father was dying. With time running out, her loving frail parent wanted her to find a husband, someone who would take care of her. However, Emily wanted love not guardianship; she wanted someone who wanted more than her inheritance!

Two very different people, yet two people who were very attracted to each other. Whenever Emily was near, Bret lost control; for the first time in his life someone truly understood him, someone truly needed him. Yet, Emily would never go to Boston and Bret knew he was not the kind of a husband she needed.

In 1881 Bret Nolan left Texas over six years ago to work in his family's shipping firm Abbott & Abercrombie in Boston. He enjoys the eastern big city, but at times misses the wide open spaces of back home. His odious Uncle Silas Abbott who treats Bret with contempt for being a Texan assigns him with a key task. Apparently, dying Samuel Abercrombie, who lives in Texas, inherited twenty-five per cent of the company's stock last year; he wants his daughter to move to Boston. Silas and his partner Samuel's brother Ezra order Bret to escort his niece Emily to Boston so she does not marry some wild cowboy. Bret agrees as it gives him a reason to return to Texas even for a short respite before returning to Massachusetts.

In Texas, Bret realizes how much Emily enjoys her ranch, but still they agree for her to see her father. However, Bret, who admires the courageous young woman, worries about her safety when he learns someone is rustling her cattle. He asks his two brothers to help stop the thieves while he hopes to prove to Emily how much he loves her.

A TEXAN'S HONOR is a delightful Texas historical romance starring two likable protagonists who to the readers' pleasure and to the chagrin of Uncles Silas and Ezra (clever first names for this avarice pair) fall in love. The story line is fast-paced and filled with Cowboy- style action. However it is the cast that brings late nineteenth century Western cattle country Texas vividly to life, a trademark of a Leigh Greenwood westerner.

That is a more appropriate name for this book than A Texan's Honor. The heroine is 1000% selfish and a dummy to boot. The hero isn't any better. I should have known I wouldn't like this book because the font was atrocious. It was all bold looking like Comic Sands and it just hurts the eyes.

This book is one merry-go-round of stupid and the same thing. Heroine whines "I love Texas. I hate Boston. Stay in Texas" while the hero whines "I HAVE to stay in Boston to prove my bad family wrong. Boston is where I HAVE to go"

Hero nags like a 2 year old and the hero is a cardboard cutout who's stuck on Boston while she's the same yet stuck on Texas.

Nothing about this book is interesting. The hero is the best character and that's not saying much. Save your money and WALK AWAY!

Another wonderful book by another wonderful author. Thrilled to find the series in ebook form. Read some of this series years ago. I am reading the whole series but it is written so that you can read in order of the series or stand alone.

Greenwood takes us back to post civil war Texas where longhorns roamed the prairies of west Texas. Bret Nolan, the main character grew up as an orphan in this untamed land even though his mother's family were wealthy Bostonians. After growing up on a ranch, Bret returns to Boston to claim his maternal heritage. His uncle does not accept him with open arms.
When shares in the family stock of its prosperous Boston shipping business is inherited by the partner's daughter, Bret is sent to Texas to bring the daughter back in order for his uncle to gain control. The historical setting and the flavor of the rough and tough early west is well depicted. Add a romance and you've got a good read.
