In a story of the old west that scorches with the blazing heat of the prairie in mid-summer, Lorraine Heath brings us Texas Glory. The eldest of the Leigh brothers has built his empire, Leighton. If things go as expected when the railway comes through, this little town will be busting out all over. Now, if Dallas Leigh could just find the one thing that would make his life complete - a wife who could bear him a son to stand at his side. But Leighton, being the small little place that it is, just doesn't pack a large number of females, especially not the marrying type. So, what's a cowboy to do? Marrying his worst enemy's daughter sounds about right. Dallas was in need of a woman and the McQueens were in need of water for their cattle. Problem solved. Yeah, right! Now, Cordelia McQueen was a right beautiful woman, much more so than Dallas was expecting. She had all the grace and softness that a woman should have. It was the fear in her eyes that caused his soul to plummet. Dallas could certainly understand that fear. She had been raised in a family that took great delight in expressing their hatred for Dallas Leigh and everything that he represented. There had to be a way for him to reach past that fear. There had to be a way to make her trust him. Lorraine Heath's newest book is a story of hatred between families and the building of an empire. It is poignant and rousing. A word of warning - this book can be a real tearjerker, so prepare yourself for a river. The pain felt by Dee and Dallas as they learn how to live in this marriage is strikingly emotional and often heart breaking. A tear-jerking, hand-wringing emotional roller-coaster! Texas Glory is beautiful! It will win your heart and steal your smiles! Lorraine Heath writes western romances that rouse the soul! Karen Ellington -- Copyright © 1998 Literary Times, Inc.
