The Texan's Wedding Escape by Charlene Sands is the story of Lauren and Cooper.
Lauren has always had a crush on Cooper but nothing ever became of it and now is rushing to marry Roger. Cooper blames himself for the accident that killed his best friend and Lauren's brother but when he is asked to intervene in this rushed marriage he does so. But this leads to him and Lauren getting closer and finding that they can go beyond the lost of the death they both mourn.

Charlene Sands is one of my favorite writer's for the Desire line and though I haven't been reading much romance lately, I absolutely had to read this one.



I'm a bit on the fence about my feelings for this one. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the book, because I did, very much, but I had some issues with Lauren.



Lauren was portrayed as a former boy crazy young woman, who has suddenly decided to settle down after only dating her groom to be for only 6 months. This groom to be is also her late bro

4 1/2 STARS!

Grief, deception and a hard-earned happily ever after! With the kick-off to a new duet about the Stone brothers, Charlene Sands brings us a story of a long-ago crush turning into forever! We’re quickly drawn into the heart of this story by the set up of what Cooper’s been going through in recent months. Once Lauren and her family are brought into the picture, we’re solidly on board with seeing this story through. The characters are very easy to like, the story line is easy to believe

Cooper Stone is a rancher who suffers with survivor's guilt. He becomes suspicious when his friend's sister becomes engaged to Tony's business partner. Will Cooper be able to stop the wedding?

This is the second book by Charlene Sands thay I read. I requested an arc because I love the first book I read. I had hoped that I would enjoy this one as well. I did enjoy it very much. I look forward to reading Jared's story.

Once I saw the length I had decided to read at least a chapter a day. What should
