Texas Lucky by Sandra Brown

Have you ever heard the phrase “You have to start somewhere”? Well, since that is the case with this beautiful shiny new blog, I figured I would go back to my roots. I had to start reading romance at sometime in my life and this was one of the very first series that I had ever read. I actually stumbled upon the book Texas! SageTexas! SageTexas!

(See Review) when I was a teenager and started reading it before I realized that it was the last in a series. Little did I know then that I was going to name both of my girls after two of the female characters in this family. I felt that Sage and Devon both were very independent, strong willed, vocal women and I wanted that for my future daughters. Even though I now read more of the bittersweet or racier romance stories, I still love the characters in the Texas! Trilogy and go and visit them every once in a while. I have moved on to kindle books but there are still a few hard back books that adorn my shelves and the Texas! TrilogyTexas! TrilogyTexas! Trilogy by Sandra Brown

Right away this book sucks you into the action with a bar fight, a damsel in distress, and a man who wants to step in to be the white knight. Now before anybody gets offended and says that Sandra Brown writes antiquated characters and is sexist. I am going to tell you why I believe that both of those are not true. Sandra Brown made the heroine Devon Haines a very strong willed female who is an independent reporter and did not take kindly to Lucky stepping in and “rescuing” her. I absolutely love the Tyler family. The quickest way to make me an avid reader of a series is for me to fall in love with the family or circle of friends of the two main characters. For the story to have any meat to it, there has to be strong supporting characters. Who wants to read a book where all that you hear about is the main characters? That would be like watching a movie that was only filmed in one location with no change of scenery and only one or two actors. I have seen some movies like that and they were not my favorites, nor did I watch them again or recommend them to anyone else.

Let’s move on to introducing the main characters. First and foremost there is Lucky Tyler, who got his nickname from history of getting “lucky” with all of the ladies. He is a sexy, Texas twang talking, cowboy boot wearing, hot tempered man who is being accused of arson. Devon Haines is a sultry red headed, feminist minded, opinionated reporter who does not want to be found after her one night stand with Lucky.  Sparks fly as they run into each other again and again.

I strongly recommend this book and series to anyone and everyone. It was after reading this collection that I became a true Sandra Brown fan. She is a great story teller that can write anything from a historical romance to a new adult suspenseful romance and can makes her characters bigger than life. She is and always will be one of my favorite authors and is loved by many readers all over the world. She has written over seventy novels that were translated in 34 languages. She has earned many awards and both her and her husband created a scholarship which is awarded to one student per year who is pursuing a fiction writing career. She not only has dedicated over 3 decades of her life to writing stories for her readers, she also gives back to the writing community. That in my opinion are achievements that every author should aspire too.
