A LONE STAR LOVER
Callie Reed doesn’t need a man to protect her. An expert sharpshooter and renegade hacker, this Texas-born spitfire’s got the skills and the courage to stand up to any danger―no matter how deadly. But when she becomes the target of a shadowy organization known as the Saints, Callie is forced to team up with the one man she can’t outshoot: the gorgeous, and infuriating, Lone Star legend named Wyatt Loughman…
A Delta Force Colonel with a rock-hard body and stone-cold heart, Wyatt has been teasing and tormenting Callie since they were playmates on his family’s ranch. Of course, he’s wildly attracted to the fiery, strong-willed Callie. But he’s always hidden his feelings behind a wall of Texas tough and military cool, even as he’s burning up with desire. Can Wyatt save Callie’s life―without putting her love in the line of fire?
The Legend is the third book in the Sons of Texas series by Donna Grant. It was truly a thrill ride with a ton of action. I wish that I had read the other two books, not so much because I needed the other two books for guidance, but more because it was so good that I couldn’t put it down. The Legend was exactly that, legendary. The fight sequences were amazing. The characters were passionate. And, I was drawn in from the very beginning.
The Legend is the story of the oldest Loughman brother, Wyatt Loughman. He is all Delta Force bravado and skill. He literally kills on instinct and is a lethal weapon like no other. Wyatt comes back home to protect his family and the love of his life, Callie Reed. In addition, his family runs a ranch that is a front for a Black Ops organization that stamps out terrorism around the world. This time, they are under attack on all fronts. Past and current enemies join forces to bring down the Loughman clan. Oddly enough, one of those enemies is Callie’s family of criminals who refuse to let her live a life free of crime. Wyatt is relentless when it comes to protecting those that he cares about. When their lives are on the line, he answers the call with precision. Even when he is outnumbered, Wyatt doesn’t even flinch. Callie isn’t too shabby in her skills herself. She may not be as savage as he is but she is a very brave woman. They are made for each other even if they continue to try and deny it. Of course, when they stop denying it, things heat up.
I really loved the family aspect of this book. The fact that the three brothers and their father also play an essential role in saving the world is great. More importantly, none of them are flawless. They appear to be real people with issues that they are willing to set aside for the greater good. And their extended family is quick to come to their aid. The final fight scene was epic and reminded me of a scene from Tombstone. I just may have to go back and read the other two books.
