A woman whose lost it all and doesn’t even know it until it’s too late… that’s Shirlene Dalton. Growing up was rough on her, but she and her brother made it to the top of their little town in Bramble, Texas. Shirlene, who’s widowed by her lucrative older husband, losses a great deal of her fortune through a mismanagement of her funds. A Texas damsel in distress, she works at covering up her financial problems from the town and family. She’ll do anything to appear
unscathed by her loss, even moving back into an old unused trailer, a childhood home, after losing her substantial house to foreclosure.
Upon moving into the trailer, she finds out she’s not the only tenet… but one of four others. A teenager with a chip on her shoulder, a little preteen salesman, and a screaming baby… whatever is she to do? She makes a deal with the children, that she wont turn them in… in the processes of helping them, finds out what’s she’s been missing in her
posh life… motherhood.
Through all this growth, you’d be shocked to find out that she just so happens to be living next to a crude sexy cowboy, whom she just can’t get enough of. His boyish good guy ways, strike a cord in her heart… until she finds out who this man truly happens to be, and why he’s come to her town. The man she falls in love with came to destroy her town and all in his path… including her. The Banker… a man whom plans revenge on Bramble to right a curse that’s affected his family for generations.
All in all, I felt like the romance wasn’t a great build up; the infatuation was a little too immediate; but the description of the banker will live forever in my good old Texas boy fantasies. Swoon.
