Country music princess Starlet Brubaker has a sweet tooth for moon pies and cowboys: both are yummy - and you can never have just one. Now Beckett Cates may not be a cowboy, but he certainly has the heart, soul, and body to whet her appetite. He's a sexy ex-Marine with a touch hotter than the scorching Texas sun and arms strong enough to catch her when she lands into trouble.

Playing bodyguard to America's sweetheart isn't easy for Beckett. But falling for her sure is. Unfortunately, Starlet has a reputation for keeping a guy or two wrapped around her finger and Beckett refuses to be anybody's backup. So now it's up to Starlet to prove that she's put her cowboy-crazy days behind her. Otherwise, she'll be singing solo instead of living in harmony with the man who's loved her even before her fame and fortune.

Booklist Review: "In the seventh book in Lane's Deep in the Heart of Texas series (following A Match Made in Texas, 2014), former fat girl Starlet Brubaker has transformed herself into country-music princess Star Bentley. When she is kidnapped after a performance, the last person she expects to come to her rescue is Beckett Cates. The former Marine is recently home from Afghanistan, and he has gotten tall, strong, and gorgeous since the last time Star laid eyes on him. When he volunteers to be her bodyguard, Star is not happy; the chemistry between them is undeniable, but Star has a thing for cowboys and a huge crush on Beckett's brother. When Star is kidnapped a second time, Beckett realizes that none of these things matter and hopes it's not too late for them to get a second chance at making sweet music together. Series readers will enjoy catching up with all of their favorite quirky characters, including the old hens from Miss Hattie's Henhouse, the notorious Texas bordello. Newcomers will enjoy the humor, mystery, romance, and seriously hot feather fan dance.--Quillen, C. L. Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A cowboy and a country singer find love in Lane's sweet, funny seventh Deep in the Heart of Texas contemporary (after A Match Made in Texas). Vocalist Starlet (yes, that's her real name) Brubaker is kidnapped from one of her performances. The tough former Marine who rescues her is none other than Beckett Cates; he may be big and strong now, but Starlet remembers him as the skinny teen she nicknamed Becky. Beckett's time in Afghanistan has changed him, but not made him immune to Starlet's charms. As Beckett tries to protect Starlet, the two become lovers, but their blossoming romance is complicated by Starlet's longstanding crush on Beckett's brother. When Starlet goes missing again, Beckett realizes that he'll do anything for her, even if she doesn't love him. Humor is never in short supply, especially when Starlet revisits her aunt's old whorehouse and the aging women who resided there. Subplots involving other residents of tiny Bramble, Tex., add dimension to this tender romance enlivened with a touch of mystery. (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
