"Diana Palmer fans are going to love this one"
Texas Ranger Sergeant Marc Brannon replaces fellow
agent Judd Dunn on the investigation with potential mob
ties. However, his emphasis changes when the murder of
Dale Jennings, a person sent to jail for a homicide two
years ago and just recently released, occurs. Worse for
Marc is that the only woman he ever loved, investigator
Josette Langley, believes senatorial candidate Bib Webb is
involved just as he was on the Jennings homicide conviction
two years ago.
Though it is uncomfortable for both parties a reluctant
Marc and Josette work closely together on the Jennings
murder case even as their love flares up threatening the
city of San Antonio with its intensity. However, she never
forgave him for destroying her credibility as a witness two
years ago and he never forgave her for her efforts to
unjustly hang a friend. Still, love is all around and
between them if they can forgive the past and survive the
present they may find a future.
THE TEXAS RANGER is an interesting romantic suspense
novel that provides the audience with an exhilarating
investigation starring two people in love and hate with one
another. The story line is fun though Marc's obstinacy
seems inappropriate for a clever detective with his
glittering record. Still he is a hunk and Josette is a
powerful female lead. Diana Palmer provides her myriad of
romance fans with a stirring story that readers of police
procedurals will also appreciate.
