Texas Solace Series

The Texas Solace Series centers around the Lawson family, and each book is a standalone featuring one of the family members. However, there are a couple of overreaching arcs and the author recommends reading the books in sequence to gain full enjoyment from them.

Rush of Love

She’s chasing her dreams.

He’s reeling from betrayal.

While home on vacation, Jo Lawson babysits the children of a family friend, Kurt Wheeler. Despite the seventeen-year age gap between them, Jo and Kurt soon succumb to the temptation of their mutual attraction.

What was meant to be a summer fling turns into a long-distance relationship … until he abruptly ends it.

Years later, Jo decides it’s time to go home after a stalker turns vicious. With danger hot on her heels, she’s forced to confront the town’s sheriff — the man who broke her heart. As Kurt uncovers long-buried secrets, he must adjust to having Jo back in town while working on a plan to keep her safe.

It soon becomes clear the chemistry from their past burns as fiercely as ever, but the numbers are stacked against them.

These are the powerful feelings Daniel King, Army Ranger, decorated war hero, amputee, and now CEO of King Security, grapples with as he returns to his hometown.

Pregnant, and deserted by her child’s father, Siobhan Scott faced the scorn of the town at sixteen and finished her last year of schooling with a baby at her breast.

Now her high school sweetheart is back in town, wanting … forgiveness?

“Oh, hell to the no,” cries the fiery Texan woman.

And then, one emotion-laden night, they give in to the strong pull of desire, resulting in a rather delicate situation they need to deal with.

But will they do it together, or will Daniel, once again, turn tail and leave a trail of red Texas dust in his wake?

Right Side of Love 

“I am not amused, Jonathan Lawson,” she snarled. “And I am done, just plain done, waiting for you to decide to propose.”

Brows raised, lips still twitching, he observed the beauty of her heaving breasts under her pretty blouse, so enticingly pushed up by her folded arms, a glimpse of the shadow between them visible through the gaping shirt. How he loved this woman and couldn’t imagine living his life without her in it, and yes, she was so correct — he’d put off asking her to marry him for far too long.

Before he could say another word, she abruptly stood and marched across the kitchen, her boots clomping on the floor. Pausing in the doorway, she did a sharp about-turn and announced, “The wedding — our wedding — will take place on the nineteenth of April at two o’clock in the afternoon. And, honest to God, Jonathan Lawson, if you are not waiting for me at the end of the aisle, I will hunt you down and … and …”

She threw her hand up in exasperation and huffed. “Just be there!” she railed and stomped out the door …
