She plans to open his mind. Instead, he uncorks her heart.

Tyler Prentice is determined to launch his new winery with a sophisticated and delicious splash. He has a lot riding on this venture—pride, his dreams, and all his savings. To ensure the success of his launch, he hires a top marketing firm. But Gianna Lucchia and her marketing plan are not what he expected or wants. Still, he can’t stop thinking about her.

Losing a major advertising account is devastating. Having to travel to Nowhere, Texas, to prove she can still create a successful branding campaign is even worse. But Gianna’s no quitter. Her plan is simple—get in, create buzz, return home. Except for when her presentation crashes and burns. Tyler’s ideas are different from hers and he wants something else. Her.

Working together on the launch invigorates more than Gianna’s creativity. Tyler is sexy, smart, and challenges her on so many levels, but Gianna’s past threatens to destroy it all. Can Tyler let go of his pride and make an even bigger gamble…on love?

Falling for The Texan‘ is the second title in ‘The Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge‘ series – and Tyler and Gianna are about to take you on quite an emotional, funny, charming journey as they work their way to a well-fought for ‘happy ever after’.

At first glance, it might seem that Gianna and Tyler are just too opposite to ever find a middle ground between them, let alone fall in a forever kind of love.  But don’t give up on this couple just because Gia doesn’t exactly put her best foot forward at the beginning, yet when the edges begin to soften when more about situations are understood, and when the chemistry between this couple goes off the charts – then you’ll understand why Tyler and Gianna are just right for each other.

I’ll admit that it took me a bit to really warm up to Gianna.  What happened at the previous assignment was not her fault, but her job is now on the line, and her resentment shows.  Tyler needs his winery to succeed – without his famous family directly involved.  This is his business, his responsibility, his dream, and it will fly or fall on its own merits not on who his family happens to be.  Getting Gia to understand that fact is the beginning of their troubles.

But when they began to fall for each other – it was pure magic.  I love this small town with quirky residents, people who know ‘all’ your business, just like the small rural town I grew up in… although Pennsylvania is a far distance from Texas.  *wink*  Family is such a strong foundation in ‘Falling for The Texan‘ even when Tyler is determined to make his winery successful all on his own, his family was still at the heart of it all.  I had fun with this story, and really… that’s the entire point.  If you love a good romance that will tickle your funny bone, make you smile or laugh out loud, or simply fall in love again then you’ll want to pick up Tyler’s and Gianna’s story – right now.  I would recommend reading in order for this series, but you do what works for you.
