The Legend (Sons of Texas #3) by Donna Grant
Synopsis: A LONE STAR LOVER
Callie Reed doesn’t need a man to protect her. An expert sharpshooter and renegade hacker, this Texas-born spitfire’s got the skills and the courage to stand up to any danger―no matter how deadly. But when she becomes the target of a shadowy organization known as the Saints, Callie is forced to team up with the one man she can’t outshoot: the gorgeous, and infuriating, Lone Star legend named Wyatt Loughman…
A Delta Force Colonel with a rock-hard body and stone-cold heart, Wyatt has been teasing and tormenting Callie since they were playmates on his family’s ranch. Of course, he’s wildly attracted to the fiery, strong-willed Callie. But he’s always hidden his feelings behind a wall of Texas tough and military cool, even as he’s burning up with desire. Can Wyatt save Callie’s life―without putting her love in the line of fire?
Review: Book three in the Sons of Texas brings us the oldest Loughman, Wyatt, and Callie. Their story is similar to Owen and Natalie’s; they had a relationship and then Wyatt broke things off and left 15 years ago with no intention of coming home. He is known as the cold brother because he never shows emotions and he doesn’t express his thoughts. He also blames his father for his mother’s murder and so he really didn’t want to ever come home to the ranch. He is also the only one how didn’t want to look for Orrin. He and Callie team up and Callie doesn’t hide how she hates him, and doesn’t like anything to do with him and his choices. She resents his disdain for a father that she would love to have as her own, and she doesn’t understand how he can throw that away. She is quite vocal in her negative opinion of him, but while they hole up in a cabin while looking for clues to help bring down the Saints, they can’t run from their attraction. 15 years is a long time to build up tension and things get explosive. When Callie is shot, Wyatt decides it is time to head back to the ranch to make a stand. Along the way, new friends are found, old ones step in to fight, the father and sons are reunited, more members of the Saints are revealed and dealt with, and the culminating action at the end was epic. Great story. I’m glad Wyatt and his father mended things and that he stopped running from Callie. I hope this isn’t the last book in the series. So much has yet to happen and there are at least two men, maybe three, that I hope get their own book.
