A Texan's Choice: The Heart of A Hero, Book 3 - eBook
Beautifully written account of people changing
A Texan's Choice.
The third in a series, this book can easily be read alone (but I can guarantee will leave you rushing to get more of Shelley's Heart of a Hero books). Shelley, has brilliantly taken us back in time to late 1800's; introducing us to outlaws, cattle rustlers, ranchers and everyday people who struggled to survive. It is this fight for survival, with which readers identify. We first meet Rosemarie as she tends to the bedside of her dieing father. Immediately, we can sense she is a troubled young lady, but why? Sadness envelopes her, yet obviously it is not from her father's impending death. Does it come from her family's poorness, which is clearly seen as we enter the Bar C ranch? A poorness, which surely hits the eyes of Scout Proffit, as he rides up to stake his claim. Scout, the outlaw who's fame precedes him. Soon, Rosemarie's troubles, the reasons behind them and Scout's battle to put his fame behind him become lives entwined in the town known as Broken Promise.Their lives continue and we begin to understand answers as to why Rosemarie appears as she does, we also realize how each of us has a bit of Rosemarie in us. Reading on, we sense something else, something which cannot be seen...but was it? Before long we are in the camp of young outlaws, traveling the land, carrying secrets and searching their lives; much like young men (an women) of today. Finally we meet Miles Grant; a wealthy, yet seeming shy and insecure man. Miles owns the largest ranch in Camp Hope, a bustling town in complete contrast to Broken Promise. Past hurts, past mistakes, self-doubt and how they effect our characters lives, our characters and our own lives can be pondered. Through daily acts, their interacting lives, events which happen, confessions, we see each characters relationship with God; whether they are searching for it or trying to regain it. A Texan's Choice, enthralls readers with action, humor, identifiable characters and is one of those books you don't want to set down.

A Texan's Choice by Shelley Gray
Scout Proffitt thought he would never be able to measure up to his brother Clayton - hero of the Civil War. Rosemarie was blamed for her brother's death. Then Scout shows up at the ranch claiming he is the owner. Rosemarie regains her perspective on life, her faith and finds friendship and love on the way to a new life. Shelley Gray is a terrific author. I don't usually like to read anything set in the West but I truly enjoyed this book. I'm a fan of Shelley Shepard Gray and I bought the book because she is the author. I highly recommend anything by Shelley.

A Texan's Choice by Shelley Gray
I love Shelley's Amish books. Wasn't sure how I would like a different genre, expecially a Western. I loved it. Rosemarie finds herself homeless after her father dies. The new owner rides in and hires her as a housekeeper. Shelley brings her characters to life and before you know it you are caught up in the story line, crying with them, laughing with them and even want to knock a couple of heads together sometimes. Her characters come with flaws and wonderful characteristics. Shelley always shows how the characters come to rely on God and how they grow in faith. Another great book Shelley. Look for her books with the Amish by Shelley Shepard Gray. 4**** all the way

wish I hadn't spent the money for this book
This is one of the worst proof-read books I have ever read. There were numerous mistakes throughout the book. Also there was no depth to the characters. And why did two different characters, Miles and Russell, both have to kill their stepfathers for assaulting women? Couldn't the author think of something different when developing her characters? When are Christian fiction authors going to realize that the women who read their books are not brainless idiots just wanting to be entertained?
