*expect spoilers*

Book 1 in Lorraine Heath's Texas Trilogy.

Goodreads synopsis:

A weary, ex-Civil War soldier travels to Fort Worth to collect his brother's mail-order bride, a beautiful belle eager to escape war-ravaged Georgia, and finds the object of his heart.

Amazon.com review:

Don't read this fabulous book in public unless you're prepared to weep in front of strangers. Amelia Carson is a mail-order bride. She has come to Texas to marry Dallas, the ranch owner she has corresponded with for a year. But a broken leg (and fate) requires Dallas to send his brother, Houston, to meet Amelia in his place. Physically and emotionally scarred by the war, Houston doesn't believe he will ever find love. When he falls in love with his brother's betrothed, he never expects her to return his feelings. Together they discover that without honor, love is meaningless.

If you'd like to re-read it, I'm happy to change the date. I'm becoming a buddy read junkie, LOL!


Michelle Gilmore | 3220 comments I could probably read one of my other challenge books instead.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Let me see what the chapter breakdown of Ransom (Highlands' Lairds, #2) by Julie Garwood will be. I might be able to swing it.

Do you read mulitple books at once, ✿Michelle✿?

I'm starting to. That's the only way I'll think I'll get through my TBR.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments LMAO! That sounds so funny, ✿Michelle✿! "I have to read two books at once to get my TBR pile down." (Oh, dear. I'm getting giddy and I need to pee. Why do you always make me laugh, LOL!)

LMAO!!!!!!!!! I don't know. I have another class for work 8-4, and I'm wide awake before my alarm is set to go off. You'd think I'd try to go back to sleep. But no, I'm on GR with the giggles!

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments I just pictured you with two books in your hands... turning your head from side to side to take turns reading... too funny! **giggles** I hope you got to your class in time and weren't too tired.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments After checking my "buddy read" callendar, I'd love to do a "buddy read" with you on Texas Destiny (Texas Trilogy, #1) by Lorraine Heath , ✿Michelle✿! However, I'll have some tail end days on another BR... so, I might not be able to post the first or second questions... unless I work on them now, LOL!

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Only 500, Susan? Small potatoes. I think ✿Michelle✿ has you beat by a landslide. Check out her TBR bookshelf. LOL!

Michelle Gilmore | 3220 comments I'm getting excited!!

Sans Hi guys! I'm here, I'll be joining. Nice to meet everyone (er, that I haven't previously met that is...)!


message 32: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new) - rated it 5 stars

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Hi Sans! Nice to meet you too :)

Sans Hi Susan and Tracey!

Uh-oh, now I'll have performance anxiety, Lisa. ^o^

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Did you drop a chromosome?


message 37: by Sans (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sans The way I react to crying women, you'd think I had. (Annoying co-worker has been crying next to me all morning. I just keep turning my iPod up.)


message 38: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Oh, man! Is work still a zoo, or is this a new drama, Sans? Is this cry-crying or cry-whining?


message 39: by Sans (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sans Still a zoo, but I've been taking it easy yesterday and today (two bosses are traveling and I had a small scare yesterday).

It ended up being cry-whining. Her tooth was hurting but she didn't want to take pain meds for it. WTF? It huts. You take Advil. End of.


message 40: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Even one Advil at the beginning of the pain is better than having to take two or three when the pain is unbearable. There should be little Public Service Announcements on this stuff.


Michelle Gilmore | 3220 comments Hi Sans!


message 42: by Sans (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sans Hi Michelle!


Michelle Gilmore | 3220 comments Does anyone object to me posting the first set of questions? I can be flexible if someone has a conflict with another BR, or real life etc....


message 44: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new) - rated it 5 stars

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments That's fine with me, Michelle.

Lina | 5563 comments *waves* Hi Sans! Good to have you here!


Heather (messybar) | 1307 comments I'm on the fence to start this one. I have it though, so maybe I'll join in.


Michelle Gilmore | 3220 comments I'm at work right now, so I'll post the schedule when I get home tonight. How many chapters a night works for everyone?


message 49: by Tracey (new)

Tracey Smith | 415 comments Can't find it :(... Book a million really disappointing me lately! Hopefully my used book store will come through. We'll see. Want a tablet for Christmas, can't wait to be able to download ebooks without having to run all over town looking!
