Savannah lives a quiet life, keeping the ranch with her brother Grady. Both of them have been scarred by the betrayal of their brother Richard, who stole their inheritance six years ago after their parents' death. Savannah steps out of Grady's shadow when she meets Laredo Smith, a wrangler she hires to help with her old rose business. Her joy at their romance is clouded by Grady's suspicious attitude and Richard's sudden reappearance. In Texas Two-Step, Ellie Frasier, who runs the feed store after her father's death, has relied on her friends for support, including rancher Glen Patterson. When does he really start to notice her? Maybe when Savannah's brother, Richard, starts paying more attention. Glen gets the prize for what may be the jerkiest marriage proposal in fiction, but give him credit for finally figuring out the right approach. Readers will cheer for these two women as they start speaking up for themselves and building their own lives. Ginger Curwen

    As usual, Debbie Macomber puts out yet another great story...or should I say two. I'd originally run across another from the, Heart of Texas, series, not realizing it was only one of six. After reading, Caroline's Child, I was hooked. Knew I had to get the others. Both Lonesome Cowboy, and Texas Two-Step were great. I finished both in only a matter of a couple of days. I love the way the cast of characters are woven throughout each book.

    A cute little book where the ‘main’ couple meet and fall in love over the course of a week and then live happily ever after, until book two where a new couple fall in love over the course of two weeks and live happily ever after. At first I thought this series might be a little too romantic and sappy for me, but apparently I’m a romantic and sappy kind of girl because I wasn’t even finished with “Lonesome Cowboy” before I went and picked up Volume Two.

Does Cal ever fall in love? Does Richard ever get shot in the head? And what the heck is up with Bitter End? I need to know! So, congratulations Debbie Macomber. I’m officially hooked.

    Heart of Texas series has three novels, with a total of six separate stories. The setting of contemporary Texas is a fun spin for those of us who live in the Midwest. The plot is straightforward, with many unlikely couples getting married. Lots of dialogue and great characters. Perfect for summer time reading.

I liked reading these stories so much that I have ordered several from library to finish the series. You will fall in love with this part of Texas and these characters that have so much to forgive, to love others in the community and there is growth it seems everyday.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I really enjoyed Lonesome Cowboy, but the brother character, Richard, was so low-down nasty that it was hard to read at times. He seriously has no redeeming qualities, and I don't like to see that in a character. This book is well written. I'm definitely going to read more of Debbie Maccomber's work. The first book (they are both set into 1 volume) ends a bit abruptly, but the storyline is picked up in the next book, Texas Two-Step, which then focuses on two new characters.

I enjoyed the second book more than the first-I liked the characters better and the lousy brother, Richard, was a bit more toned down in this book. I'd still like to see him fall in a deep hole that he can never climb out of. Strong language in this book. Debbie Macomber is a good writer, enjoyed her style and characters very much.

I must say though, its one of those books that you think... have I read this before? That being said I'm a huge Macomber fan. I've nearly read them all, so maybe I have already read these. :)

    the first two stories of this series are the imprinting for the whole series. There is this little Texas town called Promise where there is a lot of single men and women (or so it seems ;) ). There is a very interesting background story on a abandoned town, founded previously by a lot of ancestors of Promise inhabitants but it has a strange feeling and nobody wants to visit it.

    This is where it all started ... Promise, Texas. Debbie Macomber is always a breath of fresh air. Her books are all about love, family and friends ... with a few surprises thrown in.

    3.5 stars Two stories in one volume. The stories focus on different people in the same town. There is also some backstory that seems to have come from a previous novel, though I do not know which one. Easy reading, the typical Macomber formula, but enjoyable for a mental Twinkie.

    I liked the second of the novels in this volume better than the first because it was more fun to read. I thought the first novel was a bit slow and not as logical as the second. I still enjoyed both.

    I think I was expecting more. Both stories Lonesomeness Cowboy and the Texas Two-Step were very predictable and similar. Hoping the series gets better in book two.

    Lonesome Cowboy is the first of the Heart of Texas series by Debbie Macomber. Since her parents were killed six years ago, Savannah Weston has done all she can to help her brother Grady in working to keep the Yellow Rose, the Weston family ranch, after their younger brother Richard stole their inheritance. Her one joy, especially as she has managed to turn a profit on it, is her cultivation of antique roses.

Since her parents were killed six years ago, Savannah Weston has done all she can to help her brother Grady in working to keep the Yellow Rose, the Weston family ranch, after their younger brother Richard stole their inheritance. Her one joy, especially as she has managed to turn a profit on it, is her cultivation of antique roses. When, against Grady’s wishes, Savannah employs wrangler Laredo Smith to help with her roses, she finds herself more attracted to this man than any one before. But Grady is highly suspicious of Laredo, and is sure he will hurt Savannah. Richard returns to complicate matters even more, and Savannah is determined to go to the eerie ghost town of Bitter End to look for roses, despite warnings to the contrary. Macomber introduces residents the town of Promise Texas with this volume: some sweet characters, some feisty and some despicable ones. There’s intrigue, happiness and heartache. The foundations are laid for several further books in the series: an enjoyable Macomber read. Texas Two-Step is the second of the Heart of Texas series by Debbie Macomber. After the death of her father, Ellie Frasier’s mother moves away and Ellie takes over the feed and supply store in Promise, Texas. Still in mourning, she appreciates the support of her lifelong friend, rancher, Glen Patterson. The irresponsible, debt-ridden Richard Weston appears to be courting Ellie, but is it really love, and should Glen be concerned for her? Surely he’s not jealous, after all they are just friends! As Macomber leads us through the lives of the inhabitants of Promise, she does what she excels at, people and relationships. There are characters to like and to mistrust, the dialogue is realistic and the plot has some intrigue in the background of the main romance. The first marriage proposal is especially funny. The ghost town of Bitter End features again, and the characters for the next instalment are set up in this story. Another heart-warming Macomber read

    Lonesome Cowboy : Loved the character Savannah who was able to just live her life even with a cranky brother Grady. Enjoyed her meeting and getting to know Laredo who maintained decent values while also being independent. Glad that there was humor in the story while showing town people caring for each other. Could not stand her brother Richard and how he could so manipulate Savannah - she lost my respect at that point.

Texas Two-Step : Glad that there was a little bit about Savannah and her now husband Laredo which I enjoyed from the first book. Still no resolution to the problems that the brother Richard created earlier but glad how he was a part of this story and the tensions he created. I liked the struggles that occurred with Ellie and Glen trying to stay friends after their very tender kiss.

I do not usually read Debbie Macomber books but this series sounded interesting. The series is about a small town in Texas and its people. Each book discribes their beginnings.

    I have read numerous books by Ms. Macomber, stand alones and series, and have been thoroughly delighted with every aspect of them. However, this book seems to be dry and repetitive, and entertains a very unsavory character. Matter of fact, I could not quite finish the first story in this volume, and I doubt that I will read the second one either. Definitely NOT typical of Ms. Macomber!!! Aug, 13, 2014.

    This is the combination (re-print) of two novels in the Hart of Texas saga (Lonesome Cowboy and Texas Two-Step). I love all these characters and I thoroughly enjoy how Macomber shifts POV so the readers get full disclosure on every character. In these two novels we get two love stories from two different couples. Instead of following just one character through-out the eight books, the readers gets to see everyone’s lives. Each book had two central characters with the cast of supporting character This is the combination (re-print) of two novels in the Hart of Texas saga (Lonesome Cowboy and Texas Two-Step).

    I picked this one up at a local bookstore hoping for a change of pace with the western. Although it's rated highly by others, I just could not enjoy the characters and did not finish the book. This is a "2 books in one" type printing and I was able to make it through the first book, "Lonesome Cowboy". I found the female lead character to be entirely too naive, too sweet and too unbelievable. The male leads were okay, but were not strong enough to offset the female.

    Not as good as her other series so far, but I'm still reading it. I'm almost more intrigued by the mystery surrounding the ghost town of Bitter End that creeps into each story more so than the romances that are evolving in each book.
