Texas Destiny Review
I’m not huge on love triangles, because there’s usually an imbalance in the relationships between the people involved. However, Amelia has a true moral dilemma in Texas Destiny. She’s betrothed to a man that she’s never met, but she falls in love with her brother. It was interesting to read how the romance would eventually play out.
However, this book did not age well. The Civil War is mentioned throughout the whole book, but there are never any references to slavery or African-Americans.
She was his brother’s wife…
Arriving on the Fort Worth train, Miss Amelia Carson, mail-order bride, had never met Dallas Leigh, the Texan she promised to marry. The tall cowboy at the station wasn’t Dallas. He was Houston, Dallas’s brother, sent to escort her on the rugged three-week trek to the ranch where Dallas waited. Brought up in war-ravaged Georgia, Amelia thought Dallas’s letters made Texas sound like heaven, a place for her dreams to grow with the right man beside her.
And his only love…
By all appearances, Houston Leigh would hardly be considered the “right man.” The war he survived had scarred him inside and out, and he was little competition for his handsome brother. But from the moment Houston met Amelia, he knew she possessed the courage this wild land needed. She had eyes that could see past his wounded face to his soul. And he would fight any man—except his brother—for her heart. Now he and Amelia were riding down dangerous trails, sleeping under the stars, and God help them, they were falling in love.
