Ranch owner Valerie Jordan learned the hard way that people carve out their own destiny. She knows firsthand what can come of one night of unchecked attraction and lost inhibitions. And she also knows there’s only one way to handle guarded missionary doctor Peyton Turner: with caution. Thirteen years ago, they went from being friends to lovers to strangers. To save himself and outrun his past, Peyton disappeared. Now the prodigal son of Night Sky, Texas, is home—though he has no intention of staying. But once the revelation that he and Valerie share a troubled teenage daughter sends him on a hunt for answers, there’s no avoiding one another…no ignoring the undeniable desire that draws them together.

Texas Redeemed is a passionately written and emotionally gripping story of lust and risk, love and forgiveness, of confronting the damaging secrets of the past for a chance at redemption.

TEXAS REDEEMED is one of my favorite kind of romances, not just a second chance, which I LOVE, but a Second Chance You-Didn't-Know-You're-a-Daddy kind of Romance.  Peyton Turner comes back to his home-town to find out that his best-friend actually got pregnant from the one night stand they'd had before he left town for good, never to return again. 
 
The difference between this romance/women's fiction and other of the same style, Peyton finds out right from the beginning of the book, and the story is spent on him getting to know his teenage daughter, Lucy, who doesn't want anything to do with him, and finding love again with Valerie, his best-friend and mother of his child. 
 
Add some drama and heart-breaking scenes, and you have a fabulous story about finding love again and so much more, in the last place you would think to look. TEXAS REDEEMED is a heart-squeezer, and you will be pulled in from page one.

Meet Isla
 
Isla Bennet’s first encounter with a smoldering hero was on the junior high school bus—between the pages of a novel. Books have been her constant through growing up in the Midwest, partaking in some wicked travels, and working as a bookseller and nanny while earning two college degrees. She’s studied everything from English to sociology to art, and has figured out that she loves meeting people—particularly the ones she makes up. These days she indulges in her weakness for carpentry and all things retro, and dives into a new love story every day as a writer, freelance editor and RWA member—all while pursuing her wish to become a horseback-riding, volleyball-playing, French-speaking seasoned traveler.

I think it is awesome when a book is written when the heroine is put in an occupation that is traditionally considered a male's position.
