Good story, but high in angst

I have not read a Fortunes of Texas story in a long time. I liked this one a lot, but there was something that kept me from giving this 5 stars. I'm not sure what. I think it was how long it took Valene to come to terms with Jake's deception. I know you don't get over hurts too quickly, but she just seemed to hang onto it too long. Maybe it was because he was just a little too perfect, other than his deception? I am not sure.

Other than that, I loved most of what I re

Loved their connection! Val and Jake are really adorable together, and as with the previous Fortune's of Texas pairings, we're quickly drawn in to their story. I couldn't put it down!

Valene Fortunado is tired of waiting for Mr. Right to come along, so she takes a step towards tracking him down on her own by signing up for a dating app. Her first two dates have been un-appealing, but she's hoping the third time's the charm!

Rancher Jake Brockton isn't sure why he gave in to his little sister's pre

I just finished this book. I loved it. Two people, who’s been hurt before. Valene Fortunado is from a family of realtors. Wealthy.

Two people who meet from a dating app. They seem to have chemistry. Neither tell all of the truths. They both can’t seem to trust people. They seem to move forward with their friendship. As time goes o ...more

"Her Secret Texas Valentine (The Fortunes of Texas: The Lost Fortunes)" by Helen Lacey is part of the Fortune series but it is also a stand alone book. Valene Fortunado is looking for love and looking through an online dating service. Val finds Jake Brockton a rancher. What she doesn't know is that her rancher is more than what he seems.
