The final book in the Texas series which started with The Heart of Texas is available 25 September.
In Texas Wedding there is a moment towards the end that will make sense if you read the book. However, I wanted you to see what five characters thought of the main couple Jack and Riley, and Sean decided to help by interviewing them.
Texas Wedding is only possible because SCOTUS supported same sex marriage. Thank you SCOTUS. Love is love.
Josh (Jack’s brother)
Josh paced one end of the room to the other, and it was a damn small room. At each turn he got a good look out of the large window to the Double D land beyond. Jack had done well here; taken the family land and made something of it. Even though he’d had to make a bargain with the devil to do it. Josh stopped at the window and looked out. People were gathered on the ground below, family and friends of Jack and Riley, all of whom had agreed to appear in this film.
“Ready?” Sean asked from behind him.
Josh turned to face him. “Can I have five minutes?”
Sean frowned but it cleared quickly. “I can interview Eden first.”
“Please.” Josh was suddenly determined. “I have something I need to do.”
He left the room, taking the stairs two at a time and heading straight outside to where everyone was sitting and chatting with coffee and cookies. Jack stood up as he got closer but it wasn’t Jack that Josh wanted to talk to.
“Riley, can we talk?”
Riley stood from his crouch where he’d been talking to Max. “Yeah. Everything okay?”
Josh gestured to the side. “Over here,” he said.
Riley followed him with a bemused expression on his face. Max trailed him for a while and then turned to head towards Robbie.
They ended up about twenty feet from the gathering and Josh stopped.
“I was just going to the interview and I realized I never said some shit I needed to say.”
Riley looked confused, “I’m listening.”
“I know we’ve talked before about what you did to Jack way back when, the blackmail, Beth, but I wanted to just say…” Josh stopped. He didn’t have the words. Instead he pulled Riley into a close hug. “Love you like a brother, Riley.”
And Riley hugged him with lots of back slapping. “Love you too, Josh.”
Then Josh stepped back. “Right,” he said, “let’s get this interview done.”
Read Josh’s story in The Heart Of Texas, and all the sequels!
Sometimes Riley and Jack have to be the ones to fight other people’s battles and stand up for what is right.
With the life changing prospect of a yes vote from SCOTUS on the issue of same sex marriage, Riley and Jack realise they have decisions to make. Add in some distressing family news and the very real possibility that old secrets may resurface, and this last book in the Texas series pulls together as many threads as the boys can manage to handle.
But through all the ups and the downs, children, family events, laughter, and tears, there is nothing as special as the forever love between these two men.
