Product Description

Emily Dane doesn't want to give up the city life to move with her aunt to a ranch in barren, uncivilized South Texas. Then she meets ranch foreman Diego Marcelo and finds her resolve slipping. Diego is attracted to pretty, vivacious Emmy, but the boss' son starts to court her, so Diego grudgingly steps aside. When Emmy's family and Diego's boss are overdue returning from a cattle drive, Diego sets out to find them--and Emmy insists on going along. Can Diego overcome his jealousy before he loses Emmy forever? And will Emmy ever be able to give up her frills and petticoats for boots and spurs?

    The story started slowly for me, but I think the beginning was integral to showing the character of Emmy. Once they got to South Texas, the story picked up immensely. The story line develops well and is easy to follow, and the relationship twists create just enough intrigue to keep you wanting to know what this or that person's secret is, what the others are seeing, and how this will all develop. I found the climax of Emmy and Diego going to find the others very exciting to read, and it was probably very realistic in historical times. I enjoyed the rescue adventure very much.

    This book has a good storyline and well developed characters. The author provided interesting twists that kept my interest. I am all for clean romance, but this needed just a little more affection between the two main characters! The best kissing scene was between Diego and someone else he thought he might be interested in! Two little pecks with the heroine after that just didn't quite do it for me.

    Historical Fiction 1906

    This is the third book of The Texas Fortunes series.

    Emmy is from Humble, Texas. She always seem to be in some trouble or another as if it finds her. Her parents are going to South Texas so her Aunt Bertha can buy some cattle. Emmy is hoping to go to St. Louis to visit with Charity, Aunt Bertha's daughter, who is like a sister to her. Charity married and now has a son. Her parents decide she will come with. Emmy dreads this as her father has been distant with her for many years. He traveled often and she grew close to their ranch hand, Nash, who was more like a father to her. They are going to be staying at the Rawson Ranch, a friend of her fathers from England that he has not seen for many a year.

    Diego has spent many years searching for who he is. His father was a Spaniard and his mother Choctaw. After his fathers death they moved back with the Choctaw people until Diego grew restless and went in search of any relations of his father. When he ended up working on the Rawson Ranch and became foreman he built a small home for his mother and moved her with him. Mr. Rawson treated him as his son, if only he would have treated his own son as well. Cutty was always trying to please his father but ranching was not his desire.

    We see how important it is to wait upon God for the right person to spend our life with. Diego feels that Greta Rawson is the most beautiful woman and that he should court her. His mother disagrees. When Emily Dane arrives at the ranch with her family Diego is smitten. Suddenly Greta pales next to Emmy.

    Diego's mother sees the fire in Emmy and rejects her immediately. Before Emmy had accepted the Lord she was more like the girl others assumed she was. Because of her beauty all havoc breaks out. Greta is jealous, Diego and Cutty's relationship changes, Rosita the cook don't like her because she feels she is bewitching the men and causing trouble.

    Review: Emmy's Equal - Texas Fortunes Series - Marcia Gruver - Oct 2009

    For all those who read historical Christian fiction , you can imagine already what this book is going to be like as for some reason , in a Christian Fiction novel - the girl tends to be outspoken, not wanting to follow the usual ways of what a lady back in those days should act like and on track for God. She also seems to be the one that you can't tame. As it is with Emmy's Equal , lead Character Emmy Dane is always getting into mischief especially with best friend Jonas Nash - a farmhand as we read an incident involving a well and a lace handkerchief. The other lead character Diego is part Indian whose Grandmother has had a future vision that Diego's wife will be a women with long flowing white hair and green eyes and skin as pale as snow. On a trip , Emmy accompanies her father to get out of her mother's hair and meets Diego and of course again we know how the story goes as Diego and Emmy start feeling passion towards each other. However things aren't always that simple as Emmy feels for Jonas and somebody else has her mind set on Diego- Gretta. Will Emmy and Diego make the right decision and God be truthful in his vision or will physical obstacles stand in the way.

    Books 1 and 2 were okay, so I wasn't passionate on reading this one. But I had to finish the series; and I am so glad I did. The character, plot, interplay of emotions, and ending were excellent. A really good read.
