Publisher's Summary

Jodi Thomas’ lush prose and compelling characters set her apart as a writer of immense appeal. The Lone Texan features Sage McMurray, a recent widow whose life is about to take another unexpected turn. One would think that the loss of a husband was plenty for anyone to deal with, but then Sage is taken hostage in a robbery and auctioned off to the highest bidder. The bidder in question, however, has more than a few surprises in store.
Shhh! Listen to another Whispering Mountain novel.

Ready for Your Grandma to Read you a Romance?

What would have made The Lone Texan better?

An interesting plot would help. The plot isn't that complicated and doesn't really have a significant climax. Frankly, the story was not that interesting, and I only finished it because it distracted me while I was cleaning house. To me, it seems like authors are pushed to write and publish too fast, and their books end up reading like there was little thought invested in them. I would gladly delete the book from my library if I could just have my credit back.

Has The Lone Texan turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but it feels like it is getting harder and harder to find an intelligent romance.

What didn’t you like about Linda Stevens’s performance?

Narrator does an okay job narrating, but her voice shakes like an elderly woman, and it just sounds weird that someone who sounds like Betty White is reading me a romance. The 21 year-old hero sounded like an old woman -- it's just weird.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Deep sigh and disappointment.

Any additional comments?

I was hard to finish the novel.

A perfect blend of it all...

The Lone Texan has character development driven by a well crafted plot. The romance level is perfect and not unrealistic. Neither people in 1860 Texas, nor much less today, have time to have sex all day long. When it happens it should be long, slow and well developed. That's how a romance author should write it as well. Jodi Thomas does exactly that. It's not about a constant crashing climax, but a well built campsite with thought toward provisions and the following day. The fire is sustained.
