What a Texas Girl Wants (Texas Wishes #1)
“Kristina Knight doesn’t hold back on the sass, emotion, and passion, keeping her readers riveted right up until they reach The End.” — Aimee Carson, author of Secret History of a Good Girl and How to Win the Dating War
“Kristina Knight delivers a fun romp from Mexico, through Texas, and straight into true love” —Kelsey Browning, author and cofounder of Romance University
Not only does she not remember what led her to be naked on a Mexican beach with a man, but Jackson Taylor, a man she had a crush on in college. But they aren’t just naked, they’re naked and married with no recollection of how it happened. But that’s only one of the problems she’s going to have to deal with.
This is the beginning of What a T ...more
‘Naked Man by the pool. Naked man by the pool. Grandfather at the door.” That phrase from What a Texas Girl Wants had me chuckling all weekend as I pictured the opening scene. How do you get from ‘boozapalooza’ and ‘naked man on the porch’ to a very happy ending? Kristina Knight does it with humor, passion, and lots of Texas gumption. The backdrop of a horse ranch in the beautiful Texas Hill Country is the perfect setting for her strong, determined, and very family-orien ...more

Kathleen is independent, strong and capable. She doesn't believe in long-term relationships. All she wants is the ranch and no one could love or be better prepared to run it.
Jackson has no roots and doesn't want any. He's made a successful life for himself without needing to rely on a name.
Read full review in the 2012 October issue of InD’tale Magazine.
For Kathleen, time means family, enduring stability, and a girl's romantic crush never expressed. It also means blatant manipulation by her grandfather and a closing window of opportunity if she's going to fulfill her dreams and take over the family ranch.
It's a three day romantic interlude, a hazy wedding on a Mexican beach, and secrets kept to p ...more
