4.0 out of 5 stars A Quick and Fun Read! Oct. 11 2012
By J. Jares - Published on
Having just finished this book, I now find that it is the second part of "THE TEXAN AND THE LADY." I haven't read that book yet, so this review will be based on what I took from the single work.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book; however, it was a little light on plot. Sean Atherton and True McCormick were so interesting that it seemed to overcome the holes in the plotting.

What holes? In the first chapter, Sean is going to take a 2 week vacation to find his older brother's killer

(1) ten years after the fact.
(2) Hawk Sloan (the brother's killer) isn't really mentioned again until the last chapter.

I really enjoyed the fact that True McCormick seriously underestimates the man she selects to impersonate Granite Westwind. Seth is very winsome because he is "everyman" - just an ordinary person asked to do extraordinary things: being a hero.

This is a quick and enjoyable read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read, could have been better May 15 2011

TO TAME A TEXAN'S HEART is the sequel to Ms. Thomas's THE TEXAN AND THE LADY. You don't have to read the previous book to enjoy this one, however you get a better understanding of True McCormick's character if you do.
This novel picks up twelve years later. True is now a famous author of Wild West adventures under the pen name "Granite Westwind". Her publishers want Westwind to go on a book tour(I didn't know authors wait on book tours back then).Since she cannot confess to being Westwind she must find someone to impersonate him to do the tour.
Enter, Seth Atherton, hardware store owner, widower with one son(why Ms. Thomas included the son I don't know since the reader never sees him and daddy only refers to him twice)who decides he is going to use his two week vacation to look for the murderer(Hawk Solan) of his brother a former Texas ranger.
True picks Seth out of jail(he was arrested for drunkness) to impersonate Westwind and the adventures begin.
True is still the little girl who hides from personal relationships which I found odd since she had been raised by three moms. Two characters from the previous book make an appearance and begin a romance which is again a bit odd since she was 23 and he was 15 in the previous book. I guess you would enjoy the book better if you haven't read the first.
I love Ms Thomas's books but this one is not a keeper and seems to have be done in a hurry with not all the depth she usually puts in her books.
