Two million dollars? What a fortune to inherit! Courtney Madison has battled poverty her entire twenty-five years but is determined to make a safe and happy home for her teenaged brother after the death of their mom. Her inheritance in West Texas looks like the answer to her prayers. Once she arrives in Sweet Springs, Texas and moves in across the road from a handsome rancher, she soon learns her problems are just beginning.
Derek Corrigan, who co-owns some of Ms. Madison’s properties, suspects the worst of his new neighbor and vows to fight his growing attraction. He knows what women do to him--they always leave and take away chunks of his heart. He's been there, done that, had the vaccination long ago and is cured. Or is he?
What does one do when you don't trust someone, but yet can't seem to fight the growing attraction for them? Derek is in that situation with Courtney, a woman that is a stranger to him. But now he has to face her because she's inherited a man's fortune. That man was like a father to Derek, and he suspects that Courtney is up to no good, hence the reason she inherited what she did.
But the more time he spends with her, the more he realizes how wrong he is. And his two kids take to Courtney and her teenaged brother.
Caroline Clemmons has done it again. The author has lured me in with another sweet and tender romance that I had a hard time putting down. The characters are well crafted and memorable, the plot has twists and turns and the pacing was great. Home, Sweet Texas Home is a book that anyone with a love of sweet contemporary romances won't want to miss.
