Review of THE TEXAN'S SUITE ROMANCE by Judy Christenberry (see her website)
LONE STAR BRIDES
Silhouette Romance #1787, October 2005
When her friend and publicist Mona breaks her ankles, Tabitha Tyler rashly asks what she can do to help. What she can do is serve as publicist for psychologist Dr. Alex Myerson who has a new book out and who is setting off on a nationwide publicity tour. Tabitha has been intrigued by the idea of becoming a publicist, and agrees. But she doesn't expect the angry man she finds--a man who refuses to talk about anything personal and who assumes she's coming on to him before they're even introduced. Still, once she gets past the rough edges, Tabitha has to admit that there's a definite attraction--and shared interests.
It's been a year since the death of his wife, and Alex is not fully recovered. He sees any attraction to another woman as a betrayal of his late wife. Worse, since his book is designed as a memorial to his wife, and the publicity tour starts on the aniversary of her death in a senseless accident, Alex feels extra guilt when the beautiful blonde inspires feelings he hasn't experienced for a year. He's got to work with her to make his book successful, but he promises himself he will keep his hands, and his minds off of her. Of course, promises are easier to make than they are to keep.
Spending time together on the tour lets Tabitha and Alex experience the attraction growing between them. When difficulties crop up on the tour, each learns more of the capabilities the other offers. But a sudden surprise makes Tabitha question her judgement when it comes to men, and Alex's hot-and-cold treatment of her (based on his internal battle between desire and guilt) is too much for her to endure.
Author Judy Christenberry (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by Christenberry) continues the saga of the Tyler triplets with Tabitha's story. Unlike her sisters, Tabitha needs to discover herself as well as a soulmate. As a result, her journey with Alex provides a double experience for her, leading her to question herself and to learn her own strengths as a woman. Alex, a hunky doctor who works out, has plenty of money, and even cooks well enough to be a high-class chef is definitely a catch, but only to the woman who can help him see that the lessons of his psychology apply to him as well as to others.
