Melanie Hanna has finally worked up the courage to travel to New York and tell an old flame that he's the father of her young son. She's done hiding and apologizing for her one impulsive night. When her best friend asks her brother to watch over Melanie, her emotional trip takes an unexpected and sizzling detour.
Charles Dery is at the top of his game, but all he can think about is bedding the woman he was asked to protect. When she's almost killed, he takes what he'd been denying himself and discovers he'll do anything to keep her - even break his own rules.
When it comes to love, two wrongs may just finally make a right.

I'm an avid reader of Romance and a true romantic at heart. I also read and review in other sub-genres as well. Happy reading!
4.25 Stars: Story
2 Stars: Narrative
There is so much to love about these characters. From the hero and heroine to Melanie's adorable son. I could feel Charles' pain even though the reason for it is a bit weak. Melanie's pain was much more understandable. Many of her decisions from her past did greatly influence her life.
I did not care for the narrator at all. While she did give the characters distinctive voices, some of them were really bad. Charles sounded like he had a stick stuck up his rear end! David's voice was just plain annoying.
Overall, I really enjoyed Melanie and Charles' love story a lot, and I'm very glad I found this series. Happy reading!
It ranks among my favorites
That is made me smile and laugh while reading while so enjoying to story
The cabin where they play all the naked games :)
When Tony realizes that Sara was right and goes about making peace with his past so he's the person he needs to be before he goes to collect her.
If you are a fan of Ruth Cardello's books you will enjoy this. If you are fan of cute, funny love stories than this is listen for you
This is an awesome series; this is the second book in The Lone Star series and was written by Ruth Cardello and narrated by Marian Harris. Melanie Hanna is traveling to New York to tell an old flame that he is the father of her young son. Charles Dery’s sister asks him to look over and protect her friend Melanie while she is in New York. Charles tries to deny his attraction to Melanie, but when she is almost killed he will do anything to protect her.
The narrator Marian Harris, did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. I have listened to several books by this narrator and have loved every one, and I am looking forward to listening to more books by her. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.
This book has a great story; if you are looking for a great romance with some humor, then you need to get this book. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
This story had such meaning for me. It has made me think of finding my own second chance. You can't stop now what will happen with Dave? He is a vital character but a loner can't wait to see how you bring him out of his shell
It was great. Believable characters, great story.
All the conversations with little Jase were great. I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a very long time.
She does a great job with voice inflection. It's not difficult to distinguish characters, which I find with other voice artists.
This is a good story and has interesting plot. But, I hated the narration. The female protagonist voice was pure whine.
Loved seeing Charles getting taken down a notch or two and finally overcoming the family tragedy.
I wish this had been read by 2 narrators. The portrayal of the male characters made them sound uneducated.
Good story line.
"Awesome, loving this series!!"
Ruth Cardello does it again. This series just gets better and better.
This book is about Charles Dery and Melanie Hanna. We have met Charles and Melanie in the first book Taken, Not Spurred. This book is one hard decision after another for the 2 main characters. I have loved Melanie since the first book and she says what is on her mind. I wasn't a huge fan of Charles from the first book but I have slowly warmed to him during this book. All of characters from the first book are here and loads more.
Charles and Melanie make decisions that affect them and everybody around them. New York and Texas are places I want to visit because of this book. Charles doesn't want a family, he just wants Melanie. Melanie wants Charles but has to put her son first.
Love this story!!!
I would recommend any of Ruth Cardello books.
