Lone Star Courtship (Texas Treasurers #4) by Mae Nunn Love Inspired # 445 May 08
This book made me cry. Casey Hardy has 4 older sisters and an older brother, and since she was a young girl, she's been itching to take over the reins of the family business. This is her chance and nothing will stand in her way - or so she thinks until she runs up against Barrett Westbrook, a lawyer from ‘across the pond' who needs to do an assessment on her for his client.
Barrett Westby Westbrook IV has never been to Texas but he knows he won't like it. The minute he steps off the plane on Texas soil, he wants to turn around and fly back to the cool climate of England. But he has a job to do. He goes looking for Guy Hardy only to find he's recently married and moved away. Barrett now has to do the assessment on Guy's sister, Casey, who seems to be a workaholic loose cannon in the corporate world. Things were looking up and he should be able to catch his plane back with time to spare.
Casey can't believe she has to work with a lawyer. To her, lawyers are the scum of the earth after they put her family through the wringer on a trumped up charge. She has no time for lawyers and certainly not for Barrett but if she's doesn't keep her eye on him, who will? What will be dig up if left to his own devices?
This stand-alone book is part of the Texas Treasures series. It follows the Mom in the Middle book which is about Guy Hardy and the woman he fell in love with. It also goes indepth into the law suit which made Casey so against men in that profession. It was a great book.
I have loved every book in this series. They are imaginative, fun and emotional. My kind of books.
