I won't read a book that doesn't contain a romance plot of one kind or another...

The Texan's Wager - Jodi Thomas 2.5 stars
Excellent beginning with a solitary hero who has lived alone all his life and barely speaks to anyone, but on a spur of the moment decision, decides to enter a wife lottery and ends up married. Loved silent Carter, but the number of subplots and guest stars in the second half turned it into soap opera. Pity, because if it stayed as quiet and lyrical as the first half, focused on the couple's relationship rather than hunting outlaws, gypsies and evil deputies, this could turn out the best of the trilogy.
