"delightful "King Lear" contemporary Texas romance"
Everyone believes that Rebecca Reynolds lives the life of
a princess with her being the middle daughter of the
immense Lear holdings. However, the mother of a small
son, her gilded cage crashes when her spouse leaves her
for a younger model and her father announces he is dying
from cancer. Her confidence smashed to smithereens,
Rebecca looks for employment, but no one wants a former
Miss Texas whose only experience is that of arm candy to
her father and her husband.
However that changes when State Senator Tom Masters asks
her to help him with his campaign to become the Lieutenant
Governor. Also working on the campaign is attorney Mike
Parrish. As Mike and Rebecca work closely together,
respect surfaces that soon turn to love. However, she
begins to uncover questionable practices that if surfaced
will derail the individual who deserves Rebecca's loyalty
for giving her a chance to prove herself, but she wonders
what will be the cost to her new found soul?
The second "King Lear" contemporary Texas romance is
intriguing due to a delightful heroine. Though Mike is a
fine protagonist struggling with the direction his legal
partnership seems to be heading, the enjoyable story line
belongs to Rebecca. She remakes herself into someone she
can respect once she realizes how useless her life has
been. Though her spouse comes across as a womanizing
dirty rat who makes no time for his son, fans will
appreciate this second chance at life and love story that
works because Rebecca makes it so.
