He fooled her once.

It won’t happen again.

Bailing her onetime lover out of jail is Lani Li’s ticket to a big career. The Dallas PI needs accused embezzler Asher Edmond to lead her to a cache of missing millions—whether or not he’s innocent, like he claims. But Lani didn’t count on pesky old passions reigniting the minute they make contact. With suspicion and scandal swirling around them and her future on the line, Lani can’t let the sexy playboy sweep her off her feet again. Surely he can’t fool her twice…can he?


This reunion of first loves is packed full of intrigue! With the next book in the Texas Cattleman’s Club: Heir Apparent series Cat Schield picks up the saga just after one of the Edmond family members has been arrested for the missing money from the Soiree on the Bay fundraiser. The premise was quick to catch my attention and I enjoyed watching these two find their way back towards each other, but there were a couple of plot holes that left me perplexed a bit. First off the author mentioned in her letter to readers at the beginning of the book that she enjoyed writing this strong woman of color, but there was no development in the story that led me to believe she was a woman of color. No description other than black silkly hair, no cultural enrichment portrayed, no development of her heritage. I would expect a lot more before describing her as a WOC honestly. Secondly, I felt really disappointed that the family connection between Asher and his siblings was left so empty. There was no interaction before they turned their back on him and even once things changed at the end there was no big grand reconnection where they admitted any fault for doubting the guy they have claimed in the past to love as one of their own. Overall I enjoyed the general arc of the story and look forward to wrapping up the series with the next book coming up. It’s been quite a ride with the Texas Cattleman’s Club as always!
