“It is absolutely enthralling, with a tight plot, lots of twists and one of the loveliest, most unexpected, love stories I have read in a long time.”
“Heart of Texas is the first in a epic story. If you were a fan of the TV show Dallas or Dynasty the Heart of Texas is both in one. This book as intrigue, suspense, Love, sex, and a true caring. The story has all of the makings of a great epic. the families all the challenges, dysfunctions, and drama to over come but also the love, understanding and caring to make it possible. This story made me cry with both emotions of sadness and joy…I strongly recommend this book and all of the books by R. J. Scott the writing style and depth is in the upper tier of writer and is rarely seen in this genre.”
“I absolutely loved this story, I was hooked from start to finish. All the characters are engaging and you can't help being drawn in. RJ Scott's writing is absorbing and the characters and events feel real. Well worth reading. I would rank as a must read in this genre.”
This is a story of murder, deceit, the struggle for power, lust and love, the sprawling life of a rancher and the whirlwind existence of a playboy.
Riley Hayes, the playboy of the Hayes family, is a young man who seems to have it all: money, a career he loves, and his pick of beautiful women. His father, CEO of HayesOil, passes control of the corporation to his two sons; but a stipulation is attached to Riley's portion. Concerned about Riley's lack of maturity, his father requires that Riley 'marry and stay married for one year to someone he loves'.
Angered by the requirement, Riley seeks a means of bypassing his father's stipulation. Blackmailing Jack Campbell into marrying him "for love" suits Riley's purpose. There is no mention in his father's documents that the marriage had to be with a woman and Jack Campbell is the son of Riley Senior's arch rival. Win win.
Riley marries Jack and abruptly his entire world is turned inside out. Riley hadn't counted on the fact that Jack Campbell, quiet and unassuming rancher, is a force of nature in his own right.
This is a story of murder, deceit, the struggle for power, lust and love, the sprawling life of a rancher and the whirlwind existence of a playboy. But under and through it all, as Riley learns over the months, this is a tale about family and everything that that word means.More info →
