9780061493164: Texas Heat: Lone Star Intrigue #1

A woman is wrongly accused—and one man will risk everything to prove her innocence and save her life.

The last thing Jack Mansfield ever wanted was to arrest his former sweetheart—especially with her crying five-year-old hanging on to her. But Jack is the police chief of Bullard, Texas, and records indicate Charli has embezzled more than $100,000 from the bank where she works. Charli swears she's innocent, but Jack must abide by the law.

Charli thought she had pieced her life back together after her first husband left her alone and pregnant. But now she sits in a jail cell, accused of a crime she did not commit, with a little girl waiting on the outside. Charli's faith has always kept her steady during the ups and downs of life, but she can't deny she's now close to despair.

Jack has harbored unrequited love for Charli for over a decade; and that love drives him to task himself and his private-eye brother, Sonny, to prove her innocence and find the perpetrator. But Jack and Charli will never have their happily-ever-after if she goes to prison...or is murdered by the person who framed her. Will they find the true culprit in time to save Charli's life and finally give their love a chance?

Includes discussion questions, a letter from the author, and a preview of book two in the Lone Star Intrigue series

From the Back Cover:

'I'm sorry to tell you this, Charli, but I'm here to arrest you.' The last thing Jack Mansfield ever wanted was to arrest his college sweetheart--especially with her five-year-old hanging onto her, crying. But his responsibilities as police chief in Bullard, Texas insists he abide by the law. The records indicate that Charli has embezzled over $100,000 from the bank she works for. Charli swears she's as innocent of taking the money as she is of the knowledge that it has even been taken. A bank vice president, Charli realizes she's been framed. The question is, who set her up? While sitting in her jail cell, Charli sees she made a big mistake in ignoring the feelings that she should have quit the bank a year ago. Now, she views those feelings as God's way of trying to keep her out of harm's way. She'd felt the same way before marrying Vince Friedmont. Now, she regrets dumping Jack Mansfield as much as she does marrying Vince. After five years of matrimonial misery, Charli discovered Vince was a womanizer. He divorced her and disappeared, leaving her pregnant and with no job. Charli thought she'd pieced her life back together, but now it's falling apart all over again. And this time, she could go to prison for something she didn't do. Jack has always harbored love for his college sweetheart, and once he finds out she's innocent, he tasks himself and his private investigator brother Sonny to prove her innocent and find the person responsible. Eventually, Jack's heart is as tangled with Charli as it ever was--except now she has a little girl who needs a daddy. However, because of her traumatic marriage and divorce, Charli holds back on making a commitment. But Jack and Charli will never have their happily ever after if she goes to jail. Will they find out who's framing her in time to give their love a chance? The Lone Star Intrigue series follows three brothers in a small, east Texas town. All three are in law enforcement and their dangerous jobs bring them to tangle with women in jeopardy, in need of their protection...and their love.
