Instead of being one of Houston’s premier Charity Fund Raisers, Shannon has resigned from all her charitable obligations and now has to find a way tell the world that Calhoun Petroleum will not be sponsoring any charities this year. Shannon spends her days in a small cubicle typing up press releases – can you believe she didn’t even get her own office?!
Billy Pagan is Houston’s best defense attorney and has been hired to guide Calhoun Petroleum through the quagmire of legal trouble uncovered when the Patriarch died. When Billy learns that Calhoun is withdrawing their Sponsorship of the Ballet Ball, he offers a partnership – he’ll put up all the money in exchange for equal billing, which will provide invaluable advertising for his law firm and elevate him in the eyes of Houston Society, with the added advantage of forcing Shannon to attend the charity balls as his date.
In college, Shannon and Billy were once a couple, but he wouldn’t put up with her partying, drinking ways, so she unceremoniously dumped him and broke his heart. Can he accept Shannon’s drinking, now that they are older and more mature?
Can Shannon quit drinking long enough to find out where these sparks with Billy are leading?
Will she find a way to protect her reputation among the Dames of Houston Society?
Can Calhoun Petroleum be saved?
We’ve sweated the Heat; survived the Fire and now it’s time to reclaim Texas Pride.
Don’t miss the 3rd installment of Gerry Barlett's Texas Heat Series.
Things only get stranger when Shannon walks into her sister's office to see Billy Pagan, the boyfriend she dumped in college, now a high-powered criminal attorney brought in to help with Calhoun Petroleum's legal woes. The old sparks are still there, but have Shannon and Billy grown up enough to fan those embers into a lasting fire--without burning each other?
Texas Pride is full of action, from motorcycle gangs to an airplane crash, moving from high-rise Houston to rough neighborhoods and biker bars, and a cast of characters ranging from Billy's orange-haired grandma to his Harley-riding investigator. But at the heart of the book are Shannon and Billy, searching for a path through life that they can travel together.
What I like best about this story is that these two both have real problems, their issues not just a misunderstanding that a conversation can fix. Add to that, action-packed danger coming at them from several different areas of their lives, along with some quirky and unique secondary characters, and you’ve got romantic suspense at its best.
Although this is the last in this Texas Heat series, new Texas stories from Gerry Bartlett are promised in the near future, featuring some friends we’ve met, plus some new sexy personalities. I can’t wait!
Also, if you like her style of writing, check out her Real Vampires series. The first one is Real Vampires Have Curves and those books always make me laugh out loud.
The story centers around Shannon Calhoun and Billy Pagan. These two have a history that didn’t end well. They are now thrown together when Shannon is trying to safe the family’s business. Will they resolve their problems and find happiness or will the fire fizzle?
All that said, I have to confess that I was lost with some of the characters and Shannon’s Mother’s story seemed unfinished. I was not a fan of Shannon and didn’t feel engage in the story.
