was a seductive whisper as he pulled her from the blazing restaurant. But on
the run and pregnant, Bethany Burdett knew she had to forget the brave
firefighter who'd risked his life to save hers. Until Darr Fortune tracked her
he spirited the unconscious stranger to safety, the youngest Fortune brother
was haunted by a powerful desire to see her again. And when a blizzard stranded
them together, Darr knew he'd risk it all again for the enigmatic mother-to-be
who aroused much more than his protective instincts.
This is the
second book in the new Fortunes of Texas series. The first book Plain Jane and
the Playboy by Marie Ferrarella was released last month. A few years back I
started reading the Fortunes of Texas series and was hooked. The books are
individual stories, but are linked together by a mystery. The clues to the

different. He knows she's got problems and he just wants to help. We also get
to meet his oh so sexy brother, commitment weary Nick, who's worried that his

before. Nick's story comes next month.
looking to stay lost, but she could really use someone to lean on. Someone with
shoulders as broad as Darr's could just be that man. Valentine's Fortune is a
fun book that doesn't get too sappy about the holiday, but brings true romance
to life. The author does a nice job making the characters real and the reader
