Recommends it for: fans of (comparably chaste) contemporary romance
I really liked the story but I could have used a little more romance... (for someone who cut her Romance babyteeth on the likes of J.R. Ward and Sherrilyn Kenyon, mere 'intense' kisses and allusions to a night full of 'passionate lovemaking' just do not fill the bill.... if you know what I'm saying. And I think you do....;-)

I'm smitten with all things cowboy and western these days so it was right up my alley.
I have heard things (good and bad) about Janet Dailey, but I thoroughly enjoyed this qui
The Cee Bar ranch in Texas has been run by the Calders for over 100 years. So when the Calders are having difficulty keeping foremen to run the ranch, Quint is sent to investigate. Quint pretends to be a simple cowboy and as soon as he hits town everyone is warning him off the Cee Bar.

Max Rutledge and his grandson, Boone are wanting to buy the ranch at any cost. Quint be-friends "Empty" Garner and his granddaughter Dallas. Things turn very ugly and there is a suspicious fire and anthrax.

Lone Star Calder was the first book I read in the Calder series, and actually, the first book I'd read by Janet Dailey. This book made me a fan of the series and her writing.

I highly recommend it.
Started reading this series in the 80's. I think the last one was published just a couple of years ago. I've enjoyed them all, especially the early ones set in the old west. The newer one's are contemporary. It follows a large ranch owning family through the generations.

Recommends it for: all
I have read the whole series of the Calder series very well written. The first of the series start in Texas and it follows the families from the start to the finish where it ends in the modern era. Also love story but enjoyable light reading
This is a quick read romance. I picked it up because years ago I was reading the Calder saga, that Janet Dailey has put together. I like the way she puts her characters into a situation and solves the problem.
Can only say I enjoy all the Calder storues! Times were different then!
Trey is sent to Texas to investigate CEE Bar problems & meets Dallas
This is a series by Janet Daily. It follows a family through decades and generations. It is well told and I have read it more than once.
This one is definitely a keeper. Starting off strong. Already had one twist that I wasn't expecting.

Review: What a great book I really loved Quint and Dallas. I loved the way they worked together.

Mong đợi tình tiết kết thúc hoành tráng hơn, nhưng có vẻ kết thúc của truyện cũng khá hợp lí.
Again Janet Dailey writes a compelling book. It is a book that is difficult to put down.
The characters were good. The plot, not so much.
I liked all of the Calder series books.
