The man he’s become is not the boy she once knew—and he may never forgive her, once he knows the secret she’s been concealing

"Jean Brashear's distinctive storytelling voice instantly draws in the reader. She writes with warmth and emotional truth.” ~ #1 NY Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

 In this Christmas story set in beloved Sweetgrass Springs, two young lovers torn apart years before come face to face unexpectedly in this emotional reunion romance by New York Times and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear…

 

Gib Douglas has been on the road a long time, with no place to really call home. When he pays a Christmas visit to relatives in Sweetgrass Springs, the last person he expects to encounter is the girl he loved with all his heart, the girl who’d promised to marry him and love him forever…until she betrayed him and married someone else.

 

Dulcie Maguire gave up her dreams so that Gib could follow his all those years ago. She made a decent life for herself while watching him soar to success with great pride, never expecting to see him again. Now widowed, she's in dire straits with four children depending on her, when into her life walks Gib again—and she realizes that she’s never gotten over him.

 

But the man he’s become is not the boy she once knew—and he may never forgive her, once he knows the secret she’s been concealing.

 

“Wow!! What a way to bring us back to the Texas Heroes series. Every time I read one of Jean's books about Sweetgrass Springs it makes me want to find this town and become a member. Catching up with the characters in the past books and seeing how new ones are written into the story lines is what keeps me coming back.” ~Reader review

 

“I love taking trips to Sweetgrass Springs! The characters and the story draw you in and won't let you put the book down until you've read the happily ever after. The writing is excellent and I really love the small town setting!” ~Reader review

He’s a country superstar; she’s a small town waitress. When the real world slams into their stolen dream, whose heart will be the one to break?


From NYT and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear, a new and emotional Sweetgrass Springs story…


Jeanette Carson has been a fixture as a waitress in Ruby’s Cafe ever since high school. Walker Roundtree is country music’s brightest star, known by all for his laid-back charm and irresistible appeal to the opposite sex. Ever since his first visit to Sweetgrass Springs, there have been verbal fireworks between him and Jeanette as she proved to be the only woman immune to his charm.  


Now their paths have crossed in the outside world, and they’re seeing each other in a new light. Fireworks of a very different sort are sparking the sky—but then Walker’s world is upended by a tragedy, and the only one who steps in to help him is the very woman who swore never to put herself at his mercy. For a few days, they have only each other to rely upon, and these two lonely hearts find refuge in each other.


But all too soon, the real world demands its due, and their refuge is no longer private. The days of dreaming, the nights of yearning and hope face the harsh light of reality, and the only question is:


Whose heart will be the one to break?


An original love song, Never Forever, written and performed especially for this story by Eric Dove, is available at online music stores and in the audiobook.

His career is in her hands—will he risk his future to save her?


Clarice Sutton, daughter of privilege, was raised to lead society, but that life feels increasingly empty, so instead of taking her proper place in their social set, she's taken a job her parents abhor: police department psychologist. The company she keeps and the people she meets horrify her oh-so-proper parents and their friends.

 

Santino "Saint" Valdez—hardnosed detective who is anything but saintly—is under investigation by Internal Affairs for killing a predator he's not at all sorry to have eliminated. Now he's supposed to spill his guts to Miss Prim and Prissy? No way—not ever.

 

Yet she's not what he expects, and he surprises her, as well. A growing attraction complicates both their lives, and time spent together only strengthens the unwise bond between the mongrel from the streets and the society girl.

 

Saint's future depends on Clarice's professional evaluation, yet her feelings toward him are increasingly anything but professional. An Internal Affairs detective who trusts her wants Saint's head in a noose, so the stakes couldn't be higher. New on the job, Clarice can't afford to falter, yet the urge to defend the man who won't defend himself is powerful.

 

And when Clarice learns that the parents she's tried so hard to please have lied to her all her life, the only person she trusts to understand how lost and alone she feels is the very man she must avoid in order to save him.

 

As the forces against Saint gather, he knows the worst thing he can do is spend time with her and risk tainting her evaluation…yet how can he turn away from her soft and valiant heart when she's suffering so?


And when those out to get him endanger her safety, will Saint risk everything to save her?


Speculation is out of control and running rampant in Ransom Creek: Who is the new waitress at the Goodnight Café? What’s her story?

Libby Smith aka, Libby Dunaway can’t catch a break. She’s been on her own since she was seventeen and has struggled but made it, until everything caught up to her…now, hiding out in the small town she hitchhiked to, she’s hoping to lay low until it’s safe to go home, if ever. Thankfully, the towns folk are nice and the cowboys too…especially one who totally throws her off every time he walks into the room.

Professional bronc rider Vance Presley is at the top of his profession when he comes home for his brother’s wedding and sees the new waitress at the café again. She’s cute and nervous when he’s around, dropping things and freezing up and totally adorable. Funny thing is every time she looks at him with those big blue eyes of hers he can hardly think straight himself.

When she shows up at his brother’s wedding he asks her to dance…and that’s when things spin out of control.

Sweet romance is blooming in Ransom Creek one cowboy at a time.  A good clean and whole romance series readers are falling in love with.

See what the sexy, gorgeous Marshalls will do for the women they love.

From New York Times and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear, three emotional romances, stories of the sexy, gorgeous Marshall brothers—one deeply private, one world-famous—and their equally captivating bad boy cousin, each in his own way, a woman's dream lover…

 

Texas Refuge:

 

Seeking peace after nearly dying in a failed attempt to save his sister, the last thing former Houston detective Quinn Marshall wants is another woman to watch over, but someone important to his brother is in trouble, and Quinn's basic nature is to protect. Soap opera star Lorie Chandler has already lost her husband to an obsessed fan and now her son is the madman's new target.

While the police hunt the killer, Quinn's rugged Texas ranch is the ideal hiding place for Lorie and her child. Neither Quinn nor Lorie expects the explosive heat or the powerful emotion that flares to life in his canyon refuge, yet there is no future for them and both are painfully aware that their time together can only be temporary. When the madman finds them, Quinn's sole focus is on keeping Lorie and the boy he's come to love safe, even though his success will mean that he will have to give them up to a life where he cannot belong.

 

 

Texas Star:

 

Sexiest Man Alive Josh Marshall is on his way home to Texas when he rescues a woman on the run. In contrast to the many women crushing on him all over the world, this woman does not trust him and wants nothing to do with him, seeking to escape every time his back is turned.

 

Elena Navarro is running from an abusive husband with criminal ties. Terrified to trust anyone, she finds Josh's tender care a miracle, but his fame could be a death sentence for them both. When echoes of a shared past life threaten, Josh questions his sanity, but he's a white knight to the core and cannot stop trying to help her, even at the risk of his life.

 

Texas Danger:

 

Texas rancher Case Marshall is driving a truck instead of his hell-raiser Harley after a crooked partner nearly bankrupts his Flying M Ranch. New Orleans socialite Samantha St. Claire never dreamed she'd be on the run from the mob--or that she'd find her white knight at a truck stop. Their worlds couldn't be less compatible or their attraction more high-octane…but there are dangers and shocking secrets to battle before they can dream of a future together.
