Trouble in Texas by Melissa Schroeder

Two Texas sized romantic suspense books for one low price. 

A woman who can’t escape her past. 

Althea Johnson would like to leave the past behind. The memories of her mother's murder lurk in her dreams and someone wants her to remember. Deciding to return to the small Texas town where it took place to deal with the demons from that night.

A man who will do anything to protect her.

Duncan can’t believe his best friend’s little sister has grown into such a wonderful bundle of curves. He is at first stunned by his reaction to her, but never one to be slow he starts putting the moves on her. It isn’t until he is completely seduced by her that he realizes that she is putting herself in danger to solve the old crime. 
A killer who will do anything to possess her.

As both of them fall in love with each other, the stalking and danger escalates. Women close to Althea’s description are being found raped and murdered. The new lovers work overtime to figure out just what went wrong 20 years earlier, not realizing the mysteries they will reveal could jeopardize everything they are fighting for.

Excitement, danger, and falling for the man of her dreams all have Grace under pressure.


Small town college professor Grace Michaels’ normally boring life has become more than a sane woman can handle. First, her ex-finance shows up in town, then her parents park their RV in front of her house. It makes it kind of difficult to seduce her sexy new neighbor, Sheriff Ren Morello. Of course, having her office and home burglarized isn’t great either, but it does put her up close and personal with Ren.

Ren wants nothing to do with Grace. So what if he can’t seem to stop thinking about her? She is a woman who would demand commitment and after his nasty divorce from his cheating ex-wife, Ren wants nothing to do with marriage. All he wants is hard fast sex. The problem is, the only woman he can picture it with is Grace.

When the threats to Grace turn almost deadly, Ren finds himself in her company more often than not, and keeping his hands off her becomes impossible. But as the danger grows closer, the attraction grows deeper, and Grace must choose between protecting her heart or her life. 

Both books have been released as single titles.

My review:
Two Texas sized romantic suspense novels from Melissa Schroeder. These books have been released before and you may have missed them but now you don’t have or want to.

Thea Johnson has come home. Her marriage has gone the way of the Dodo and she needs to go back to the beginning. Small towns never forget anything and most of the town believes Thea’s father killed her mother and then took off. Thea knows deep in her soul that isn’t the case. Now it appears someone is out to get her too. Can her brothers best bud the hunky sheriff Duncan keep her safe? This story is filled with twists and turns that will keep you guessing till the very end.

This is a sweet, funny, sexy contemporary romance. Grace is a slightly clumsy college professor with a heart of gold living and working in a small Texas town. Ren Morello is the hunky new sheriff who moves in across the street. He is recently divorced and wants to keep any and all interactions with the female set no strings. Grace was cheated on by her ex fiancé but is still the settling down kind and thus not for Ren no matter how sexy he finds her. I adored Grace and got almost as big a kick out of the secondary characters as I did Ren & Grace. Another winner from the pen of Melissa Schroeder.

My copy was given by the author and I have voluntarily written a review.
