Series: Texas: Star of Destiny
In 1836 Texas, Alandra Sandoval is the lady of Rancho Sandoval, determined to prove to a doubting world that a woman alone can run a ranch as well as any man. But when Comanches attack her ranch and kidnap her, Alandra must admit she needs protection. A top hand at a nearby ranch, Scully Falconer, is chosen for the task and though Alandra tries to pretend she doesn't need his help, he quietly stays by her side.
Though they believe their paths to be worlds apart, the rugged American cowboy with a troubled past and the proud lady of Mexican descent are united when Alandra's greedy relatives burst into their lives. And when General Santa Anna's army crosses the Rio Grande—marching toward a rendezvous with destiny at the Alamo—Alandra and Scully are swept up together in the tide of history...and their world will never be the same.

Megan4 Stars Out Of 5March 22, 2010MeganI was pleasantly surprised by this novel. Her Inheritance Forever is the second book in the Texas Star of Destiny series, and I hadn't read the first book (The Desires of Her Heart). Set in 1836 during the Texas revolution, this was a wonderful historical romance. The characters ran into the famous Sam Houston and the infamous Santa Anna. Cote admits to taking "dramatic license" with two facts, but she includes a brief historical note to address those issues. Readers are left more informed of that era and war.Brief Synopsis: Alandra Sandoval is a woman in charge of her own ranch in Texas, a time where women in leadership is extraordinary. She is fiercely independent and wants to prove that she can do it without a man; however, a series of events including the war, a kidnapping, and greedy relatives brings a man into her life. Scully Falconer is a ranch hand at the Quinn's ranch. The Quinns were Alandra's guardians after she lost her family (and the subject of the first book). Scully is asked to protect Alandra, and he does everything he can to do that. Both find more than they ever thought they would. The characters in this book were well-developed, despite not reading book one. Back stories, thoughts, and actions showed us who they were and why. The romance was sweet; the relationships were tender. Alandra came to a very tough realization about herself in which she grew spiritually and emotionally. The storyline moved quickly, and there were moments of tension along the way. I know I would enjoy the rest of the series, and I look forward to reading others by Lyn Cote.inspiredbyfiction
