TEXAS RANGER DAD (3) by Debra Clopton: Ex-Ranger Zane Cantrell, now deputy sheriff of Mule Hollow, Texas, is in town mainly to reconnect with Rose Vincent, whom he feels he failed years ago. Her time in the witness protection program and an abusive ex-husband behind her, Rose dreams of a successful business partnership with her 14-year-old son, Max. Yet when the truth of Max's relationship to Zane becomes known, Max and the town matchmakers seem determined that Rose and Zane have a future together. But Rose believes her dreams of a happy, independent life are in jeopardy. This warm, tender story of love found again is overwhelmed by the manipulative matchmaking.
