In 1856 options for single women were limited especially a single woman with three children, no money and a heartless mother in law who was in a position to take her children. With no other options left to her, Widow Jessica Barton turned to the one person she felt could help, Teagen McMurray a friend she never met.  Jessie knew she would be safe if only for little while on Teagenís horse ranch, so she packed her and her daughtersí meager belongings and left Chicago for Texas and the Whispering Mountain Ranch.

Reaching the Whispering Mountain Ranch Jessie felt like she was home, but her peace at the ranch may not last when Teagen finds out the truth about his friendship with Eli Barton and the secrets Jessie was keeping.

Tall, Dark and Texan is a story to be enjoyed and one I loved from start to finish. The people outside of the sanctuary of his ranch feared Teagen.  Not Jessie, she knew Teagen like no one else did and she knew there was so much more to him than what he showed on the exterior. Jessieís daughters were so entertaining, especially Rose. According to her the whole daily running of the ranch rested on her five year old shoulders.  I love the slow pace of Teagen and Jessie's relationship. They became a family before they even realized it was happening.  The only thing that could have made this story better for me was Sage and Roak finding their way to each other.  Roak needs loving and being that this is third book in the Whispering Mountain trilogy, Iím afraid I may never know if he finds it.  Tall, Dark and Texan is a great story, beautifully written and a terrific wrap up of the Whispering Mountain trilogy.
