The Texan’s Surprise Son

****1/2

 

     Jacob Baron is competing in a rodeo event when Mariana Snow approaches him. He is shocked to learn that he has a son--he spent a weekend with Mariana’s sister, and as a result she had Cody, his son. Now she’s died of breast cancer, and Mariana is his guardian. Leah did not want Jacob to know about Cody until he is eighteen, but Mariana didn’t think that was right or fair.
     Jacob does a DNA test but takes responsibility for the boy before the results come in. And though he has a lot on his plate between his rodeo competition and struggles on the job, he will learn to care for this precious little two year old. Mariana fears Cody is slipping away from her but also fears her attraction to Jacob.
     Cathy McDavid continues the "Texas Rodeo Barons" series with this involving standalone tale. The continuing storylines advance in the background, and continuing characters make for wonderful secondary characters. And readers who are fans of the rodeo world get a peek into that life.

His Christmas Sweetheart

****1/2


     Miranda Staley has been trying to catch Will Dessaro's eye for a long time. She sometimes sees flashes of interest, but he’s shy and hard to get to know. Besides, she has her own daily struggles. She runs Harmony House, the only senior care facility in Sweetheart, Nevada. Despite the challenges, she loves her work, but money is tight and getting tighter. Still, she can’t stop trying to find her way into Will’s heart.
     Will keeps to himself for a good reason. PTSD and crippling panic attacks keep him from opening up to anyone. But bright, bubbly Miranda is hard to resist, much as he tries. And her background in nursing gives her more insight into his struggles than he’d like her to see. This is one relationship that will not be easy.
     Cathy McDavid's second title in her "Sweetheart, Nevada" series stands alone, though characters continue from the first book. This is not easy reading, but the characters' struggles with financial hardship and emotional trauma will melt even the hardest heart. And the wonderful characters, both lead and secondary, make this a must read tale.

        Conner Durham can’t stand the pain of seeing Dallas Sorrenson again. He’s very attracted to her, but she chose his friend Richard instead. When Richard and Conner competed for the same job, Richard got the job and Conner became unemployed. Now he’s working with mustangs on his friend’s ranch while he looks for another job, but he’s come a long way down in the world, and his new lower position is a serious blow to his pride.
        Dallas has broken up with Richard, but a week later discovered that she’s carrying his baby. She won’t marry a man she doesn’t love, though she will not deny him a place in their baby’s life. Her attraction to Conner is complicated by her fears that he’ll be reminded of Richard every time he looks at her growing belly. Conner feels like a failure because of his job situation, and every new employment rejection makes him feel less deserving of Dallas. Richard would be a much better provider.
        This is the final title in Cathy McDavid’s Mustang Valley series, but readers will easily get up to speed. This is very much a tale of these times, when many are struggling with unemployment. Conner’s pride and self-pity are powerful elements of the plot, as is the process he goes through to rediscover his self-worth. Dallas has her own journey as well in this intelligent love story, and readers will also enjoy endearing rescue animals including mustangs and cats.
