    Rose had it hard. From a young age, she had to learn that the only person she could truly depend on was herself. After killing a man when she was just a teen, she was whisked to a place she had never been before with people she'd never met. They became her new family and she owed her life to Bull Tyler. Fast forward more than a decade and the couple who took her in have been murdered by the cartel that has taken over their town and they're out to get her too. After taking another man's life, she Rose had it hard. From a young age, she had to learn that the only person she could truly depend on was herself. After killing a man when she was just a teen, she was whisked to a place she had never been before with people she'd never met. They became her new family and she owed her life to Bull Tyler. Fast forward more than a decade and the couple who took her in have been murdered by the cartel that has taken over their town and they're out to get her too. After taking another man's life, she finds herself on the run and the only place she can think of to go, to be safe, is the only other home she's known... with Bull. She's determined to work the land that was left to her by her grandfather, but Bull has taken that land as his own. While trying to get her land back, she's also back to face the son of the man she killed, the mystery of missing cattle, and a stranger that works for the enemy that stirs something in her she's never felt before. While there was much to enjoy with this story, it did drag in bits. Tanner was easy to like, but in the end I still didn't know him. Bits and pieces of his life were revealed, but it wasn't enough. However, his character was an honorable man, full of integrity, compassion and understanding and I loved how he was able to see to the heart of Rose. Now her character was the hardest to get attached to. She really was prickly. But I admired the heck out of this young woman. The author created a heroine that wasn't a stranger to hardship, who had survived against the odds, who had endured the unmentionable, and who literally demanded your respect. Texas Free had doses of suspense and a bit of mystery, but at its core it was about hard work, family, finding hope, and falling in love. ☆.。.:* ARC provided for an honest review .。.:*☆ Release: August 28, 2018 | Genre: Western Contemporary Romance | Multiple POVs - 3rd person | Standalone - The Tylers of Texas #5 Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr

It's nice to pick up book and get a break from all that. Reading Texas Free was a nice break from that endless loop. The story is a bit more cut and dry then I'm used too. This doesn't have any flowery romance and is low on heartwarming one liners between the MCs but I felt their connection and I wanted both Tanner and Rose to have their happily ever after in the end. In the long run, I guess this did delivery what it promised, two people finding love. I'm not sure this would be a hit for everyone but I liked the change of pace (aside from the long winded descriptive scenery) this was a good read. Rose did really have the worst of luck and the treatment she received by the horrible men she encounters throughout the book was both dispicable and disheartening. I get it was different times (the story takes place in 1985) but it made me wonder if anything has really changed since then. Quick Summary: Rose has made it back to Texas, ready to claim the plot of land her grandfather died protecting. But she's been gone for 12 years and getting back her rightful inheritance is blocked by men convinced they know better. She crosses paths with Tanner, an undercover agent working to catch some rustlers in the area. Tanner doesn't know if Rose is friend or foe, she's mysterious and tight lipped and just happened to return home at the same time cattle go missing. With the cartel on her tail, a battle for her land ongoing with two sides pulling her in difference directions, Rose and Tanner manage to connect on a level neither one expected. Each one has scars and hurts that have kept them from moving on but when they come together, the future doesn't look so desolate. Memorable Moments: Most of the guys in Rose's life have left her, hurt her, lied to her, betrayed her or manipulated her but Jasper was the only one who ever treated her with any real affection. I loved this character and wish we would have gotten more of him in the story. The part that sticks out for me the most it when things get a bit heated and he starts to pray. It made me laugh but it also was one of the sweetest moments in this book. Would I recommend? I liked the old time feel to it but I'm not sure this is something I would re-read again. The "I love you" scene was so lackluster that I felt a be deflated after reading this all the way through with that being the reward. I also wasn't really feeling the loose ends that were Ferg and his slimy rodent of a son, Gern. I wish the epilogue would have mentioned what happened to them. * * * ARC provided for an honest review * * *** I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. SAFETY INFO: (view spoiler)[ Ages: Rose is 26 and Tanner's age isn't mentioned. Cheating: None. OM/OW drama: None but Tanner is a widow, having lost his wife, young son and unborn child in fire a few years ago. Rose is accosted several times by different men she encounters.

She is later sexually targeted by Gern and the local mechanic in town. Separation: A two week separation where both remain celibate. Push/Pull Tanner does push Rose away but later comes back and convinces Rose to give them a chance, to see where things can go between them. Main Pursuer of relationship: Tanner.

    This book is certainly full of romance and drama with a typical Janet Dailey western heroine - someone not as advantaged in life as others, determined to stand her ground. Characterisation and setting are well drawn. What I don't like is that all the men are control freaks who can't abide the notion of a woman owning land that gives access to the creek, and can't even conceive of renting access from her, no they just have to barge through; they also kill the few sheep she tries to keep, because, This book is certainly full of romance and drama with a typical Janet Dailey western heroine - someone not as advantaged in life as others, determined to stand her ground. Characterisation and setting are well drawn. What I don't like is that all the men are control freaks who can't abide the notion of a woman owning land that gives access to the creek, and can't even conceive of renting access from her, no they just have to barge through; they also kill the few sheep she tries to keep, because, you know, sheep; they either try to force attentions on her in town, or pull a gun on a man who forces attentions on her, because insisting he leave the bar doesn't look tough enough. If that was a man who owned the few acres bordering the creek, the dynamics would have been entirely different. I see no reason whatsoever that the lady could not have had a legal access agreement drawn up, while the rustling, providing a reason for the principal male character to arrive, is a bit daft in that each rancher assumes his neighbour is doing the rustling. Can't they pick up the phone? Fans of Dailey will find this tale gun-infested and violent, compared with her earlier works like Night Way and This Calder Sky. But maybe she was depicting Texas as she saw it on her travels. I downloaded an e-ARC from Net Galley and Fresh Fiction. This is an unbiased review.

    Like all the Texas books by Janet Dailey, Texas Free is a Western story with sweet, steamy romance at its core. Rose is running from a past she wants forgotten and Tanner is a law man willing to help her. As always, there is something about the West and the way Janet Dailey writes that puts you in the thick of things. A perfect story with a rough and rugged ending.

    I was hooked from the first chapter. A continuation of the Ty'lers of Texas series, takes you to the not to distant past of about 30 years ago and centers on the extended family of Bull Tyler. They return to reclaim what was taken from them and are running from a dangerous group of men. We are also introduced to a man who is fighting his own demons and has come to Texas to try to forget. We are also reintroduced to old enemies and their machinations to get what they've wanted for years. Texas Fr I was hooked from the first chapter.

Janet Dailey has always been a favorite author and continues to be with this book and series. I look forward to reading about the next generation of Tylers and what their lives will be like when Bull's sons grown up. Also I can see a new series with the children in the McCade family finding love and happiness in Montana. I look forward to the next book from Janet Dailey.

Texas Free--the fifth book in the series--is actually Book 2 chronologically. The story begins in 1985, when Bull Tyler is only thirty-four and his two sons--Will and Beau--are young boys.

I've now read and enjoyed all six books in the exciting "Tylers of Texas" series. Texas Free--the fifth book in the series--is actually Book 2 chronologically. The story begins in 1985, when Bull Tyler is only thirty-four and his two sons--Will and Beau--are young boys. The boys eventually grow up and have books of their own (Texas Tall and Texas True). Texas Free is the compelling story of feisty Rose Landro. I first met Rose in Texas Fierce, when--at age 14--she killed a neighboring rancher in self-defense after he murdered her grandfather. With Bull Tyler's help, she fled to Mexico, where she was taken in by a kind couple in the small town of Rio Seco. When this story begins twelve years later, the town has been taken over by the Cabreras--a vicious drug cartel--who've killed anyone who opposed them, including Rose's foster parents. When Lucho Cabrera tries to rape Rose a second time, she kills him and flees back to Bull Tyler's Rimrock Ranch in Texas, intending to reclaim the adjoining thirty acres she'd inherited from her grandfather. Rose has big dreams, but she faces strong opposition. Bull Tyler claimed the land in her absence, needing the water from its year-round creek for his cattle. He's not about to give it back to Rose. And the nefarious Ferg Prescott--Bull's enemy and the owner of the neighboring Prescott Ranch--will stop at nothing to destroy both Bull and Rose, intending to add all of their land to his sprawling ranch. But Rose's biggest threat is Refugio Cabrera, the powerful head of the Mexican drug cartel, who vows to find and murder the woman who killed his only brother. There's plenty of suspense and danger in this gripping story of a strong woman's determination to survive against all opposition. But she can't do it alone, and Special Ranger Tanner McCade--who's been assigned to investigate rustling in the area--is soon attracted to lovely, mysterious Rose. Tanner is grieving the deaths of his wife and little boy, but he can't resist his growing feelings for Rose. Though she's been horribly abused by men, she gradually accepts his help. Can these two damaged people open their hearts to love? Their sweet, slow-burn romance weaves beautifully through the dramatic plot. It all culminates in murders, fire, kidnapping, and a chilling confrontation with Refugio Cabrera and his cohorts. I'm going no further, because I don't want to spoil the ending. Grab your copy and enjoy another romantic western adventure from the incomparable Janet Dailey. As always, you'll find no vulgar language or explicit sex scenes. I enthusiastically recommend Texas Free and the entire Tylers of Texas series! (FYI: Rose also plays a role in Texas Forever, the final book in the series.)

Rose is a very strong woman who is very stubborn which was frustrating at times when she could not see past herself and what she needed to prove to the world. I understand that her past and circumstances had to make her a strong person and rely on herself, but I feel that she was surrounded by those who were looking out for her. I liked the easiness between Rose and those at Rimrock as if they were a family and just haven't seen each other in twelve years. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for this privilege. #TexasFree #NetGalley

Throw in cattle rustling and an undercover Special Ranger by the name of Tanner McCade, and you have a lot going on in the story. The romance is secondary, since it’s more of a suspense story. I have to confess I was taken aback at the beginning when I read the first chapter saying it was 1985. Don’t know if the book was published then , or it’s a retro/modern western suspense. I was entrusted this copy by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

    I loved Janet Dailey books years ago. This book is a worthy continuation in her Tylers of Texas series. Rose Landro, who is on the run from the Mexican Cartel, decides to return to the small ranch she inherited from her grandfather. Bull Tyler, her friend, has registered the land in his name but since she is a tough, self-sufficient and independent woman, she lives in a camper and begins farming with vegetables, chickens and lambs. She meets Tanner who is a Texas special ranger and sparks fly. Of I loved Janet Dailey books years ago. This book is a worthy continuation in her Tylers of Texas series.

    More suspenseful than romantic this one had me flipping pages quickly. The characters are edgy, rough and faithful to their values. Rose and Tanner had a tough start with a slow burning romance. Her troubles with the land, not knowing who to trust and wondering when her past will catch up made the story intriguing. Rose isn't an easily likable character, she's stubborn and intelligent yet common sense alludes her at times. I enjoyed Tanner's gentleman side and the other characters added some cow More suspenseful than romantic this one had me flipping pages quickly.

Always a pleasure to get a Dailey book, something unique every time. My copy came through Netgalley and my review written voluntarily.

Following the cartel killing her guardians and raping Rose she killed the rapist and fled from Mexico back to Texas to take back her land.

    This western romance is not my usual genre but I really enjoyed it. It’s one of those books that I chose because of the cover. It caught my eye as I walked by the ‘new books’ table at the library. Daily’s ability to build her characters is amazing. She covers cowboys, crooks, the Mexican cartel, love of family and love of the land in this quick suspenseful novel. I plan to read more of her books.

    Good Book although I believe the editors may have been a little tipsy when they edited it, because I found several misspelled words and some paragraphs that just didn't make sense. For instance one of the main characters would be driving a pickup truck and in the next sentence he would be tying his horse to a tree and a couple of paragraphs later, he would be getting back into his truck. I stayed confused the whole time.

    While I usually love Janet Dailey‘s books, this one lacked her usual flair. The story dragged in spots, the characters were not as full as one would expect. Not sure who they have writing for her now but they need work. Plot lines may have been developed before her passing, but the storyline just doesn’t flesh out the way one would expect. It was nice to catch up with the characters and continue the story though.

    I have this book in my queue for quite a while and went ahead and read it. I did not market on my Goodreads app until I was a quarter way through and I realized it was a series. I like starting the series from the beginning but the way it’s been with the last series I have been reading I guess I really didn’t matter where I started at. This was a pretty good read. A little out there at times but a good Texas book. I will start with the beginning of the series next.

    Heartwarming The heroine of this book has been through a lot and has decided to live alone on 30 acres. That was before she reconnected with old friends, met the love of her life and had her life threatened after young men she had loved as brothers gave her up to members of the cartel and she was rescued by friends and the man she loved.

    Great Book I really enjoyed the story. I liked the characters and how they treated each other. This is a story about a strong woman and how she dealt with strong men. I would think about the book when doing other things. It stays with you.

    Nothing Special I read the synopsis and had great hopes for this particular book so to say I was disappointed is an understatement. It's was on offer so that went in its favour .... Not a keeper, that's for sure. Nothing Special I read the synopsis and had great hopes for this particular book so to say I was disappointed is an understatement.
