Texas Present Day

Megan Westmoreland wants to know more about her family's past. The Westmorelands already discovered cousins they had never known about before, and Megan has a feeling that there are more. Taking a friend's suggestion, she hires Rico Claiborne to investigate her family's history and discover just what happened on that side of the family.

Rico is used to working cases alone, and when Megan decides to join him, he's furious. Rico knows he won't be able to resist Megan if she joins him, and as time goes on, he finds he doesn't want to. As Rico and Megan uncover way more information than they thought possible, Rico becomes her rock to lean on throughout all the emotional turmoil. But will they be able to stick together when all Megan knows might be torn apart?

The latest in the extremely popular Westmoreland series, TEXAS WILD features Megan, so desperate for answers about her family history that she hires a private investigator to look into it and ends up following him while he's on the trail. With a passion for life and family, Megan is a strong heroine who knows what she wants and won't let anything stand in her way. Add in Rico, who is used to working solo and has a stubbornness to match any bull, and the sparks will fly.

A great, fast read, TEXAS WILD is an excellent new addition to the Westmoreland series, and one that fans will really enjoy. Brenda Jackson knows how to write a good love story, with just the right amount of drama to suck the audience in until the very last page. Be on the lookout for the next novel in the Westmoreland series, ONE WINTER'S NIGHT, coming December 2012.
