Lone Star Woman

Jude Strayhorn, of the famous Texan cattle family, is ready to prove she can run her family's ranch. She sees the 6-0 property as the key to her goals, but her plans are scuttled when she discovers a mysterious heir has come to claim it. For reasons she can't explain, she feels drawn to Brady Fallon and can't seem to resist offering her help - in whatever way he wants. Brady Fallon has a history and he knows he's just not quite good enough for Jude. But he can't help his attraction to her, despite all the complications. Things only get worse when he starts working for the Strayhorn family as a ranch hand. Brady and Jude have conflicting goals, and their attraction to each other only makes it harder to decide what's more important - their careers or each other. Lone Star Woman was a fun, modern Western love story. Jude is not a simple woman. She is kind, helpful, spirited and willful. She thinks she knows her place in the world, so she is rattled by Brady and what he means to her future. Brady is all a woman could want - gorgeous, sexy, and with a heart of gold. But the complications that could keep them apart are difficult to overcome and make the whole story fun to read. You find yourself rooting for them both to get everything they want and the resolution is satisfying. Niki Reviewed for Joyfully Reviewed

Jude Strayhorn is determined to be the one to bring her family's ranching dynasty into the future. After all it only makes sense that she be the one to inherit the Circle C. Unfortunately her dad and grandfather don't see things the same way she does - they're old fashioned and because she's a female they're pushing her to marry. Jude is smart enough to realize that if she intends to ever convince them that she's capable of running the Circle C she's going to have to take matters into her own hands. Brady Fallon is newly divorced and moved to Willard County where he's inherited the 6-0 ranch from his aunt. The place is rundown and in need of some serious TLC and cash in order to get it turned around into a profitable ranch again. Along with his divorce he had been forced to liquidate his company and then there's always child support to worry about but for now Brady feels a ray of hope in owning this small piece of land. Despite the fact that her family is well-to-do and she's an heiress Jude working isn't necessary but she holds a job teaching at a local school. Her true dream lies in acquiring the 6-0 ranch which butts up against the Circle C and making a success out of the run down ranch with the money her grandmother left in trust for her. However that plan meets with disappointment when she discovers that Margie Wallace left the property to her nephew. Fortunately she hadn't informed her father or grandfather of her plans so she won't have to listen to them rant over that. The same night she discovers that Brady's inherited the 6-0 she learns that he's also been hired on as a Circle C ranch hand. What's even more confusing is her grandfather's reaction to the whole situation. Sure the Campbell-Strayhorn family has skeletons in the closet but something tells Jude that there's more to the story than she's been privy to and she makes the decision to help Brady - even if it displeases her family. Brady knows that getting involved in any fashion with Jude is going to be disastrous if/when her family finds out but denying her is almost impossible. Can he trust this woman who has designs of her own on his property to not betray him and help him make it a success? LONE STAR WOMAN is full of family secrets, disappointments, heartbreak, friendship, love and hope. Sadie Callahan successfully brings these characters to life and involves the reader in every step of their transition from casual acquaintances to friends to lovers. Jude's need to prove herself to her family is what truly caught my interest though. There's no doubt that she loves her father, grandfather and various other people who reside at the Circle C but she's never been given the opportunity to do what her heart desires and be a real part of the ranching operation - because she was born a female. Brody's situation with his ex-wife and son is equally captivating and heart wrenching. When you combine these two spirited characters there are sure to be sparks and it's im

fabulous contemporary ranch romance

In West Texas three generations of Campbell-Strayhorn blood own the Circle C Ranch. Grandpa may be the family patriarch, but his son J.D. runs the spread while his granddaughter Jude looks forward to soon take over from her dad. However, the two men in her life prefer Jude to marry and raise the next generation, preferably males. Independent and upset with her dad and granddad, Jude buys the nearby 6-0 ranch to prove to her chauvinistic kin she can run a spread. However, she finds a stranger nesting on her new property; to her chagrin, recently divorced Brady Fallon makes her warm all over until he asserts he inherited the ranch she just bought. Brady is attracted to Jude, but he is coming off of a nasty divorce and knows better than to fool around with the daughter of his neighbor, who has given him a job that he needs to bring in money to restore the 6-0 ranch. As J.D. mentors Brady to replace him at Circle C, her daddy breaks Jude's heart again. LONE STAR WOMAN is a fabulous contemporary ranch romance that is kept fresh by the lifestyle depth of the three generations of Campbell-Strayhorn's. The storyline is fast-paced as Brady struggles between loyalties and Jude by betrayal by the three men in her life. Readers will appreciate this fine Texas tale starring a strong female and three chauvinists who love her but fail to give her the chance she deserves. Harriet Klausner
