Ryland #1 - Eine Texas-Dynastie: Luke Ryland soll sterben

Alfredbooks | Ryland


Schrecken und Entsetzen herrschen bei Ryland Logistics. Ein Unbekannter hat ein Attentat auf Luke Ryland, den Chef des größten Transportunternehmens im Südwesten der USA ,verübt. Nun liegt Ryland auf der Intensivstation des South Texas Medical Center in San Antonio – und niemand weiß zur Stunde, ob er wieder aus seinem Koma erwachen wird. Innerhalb der Familie gibt es Spannungen – und es entstehen bereits erste Intrigen, wer gegebenenfalls das Erbe Rylands antreten könnte.

Von all dem ahnt Jim Sherman, der Ex-Schwiegersohn des Firmengründers noch nichts. Er ist mit seinem roten Kenworth-Truck nach Las Vegas unterwegs. Dort trifft er seinen ehemaligen Kollegen Bob Washburn, der in Schwierigkeiten steckt. Wenig später erreicht ihn die Nachricht vom Attentat auf Luke Ryland. Er beschließt, nach San Antonio zurückzukehren, und Bob kommt mit. Aber Bob hat Probleme mit der Mafia, und die hat es auf den Schwarzen abgesehen. Als sich dann herausstellt, dass die Mafia ebenfalls für das Attentat auf Luke Ryland verantwortlich ist, gibt es für Jim Sherman nur noch einen Weg – den Kerl suchen, der seinen Ex-Schwiegervater umbringen wollte …

RYLAND – EINE TEXANISCHE DYNASTIE ist auch eine Familiensaga, deren Handlungsrahmen das gesamte 20. Jahrhundert und mehrere Generationen umfasst. Es wird auch Rückblicke in die Anfänge der Firmengeschichte geben sowie weitere Romane aus der Zeit, als Luke Rylands Eltern und Großeltern ihre eigenes Schicksal meistern mussten, denn die Grenzkonflikte zwischen Texas und Mexiko dauern ebenfalls schon seit Jahrzehnten an.

Colton's Folly

BWL Publishing Inc.


Abby Colton knew she’d been asked to teach at the reservation school only because they couldn’t find a better candidate. According to Cat Tallman, a better candidate would have been native American instead of a white woman. Determined to fight her in every way he could, there were moments when a look, even a touch, threatened his resolve and tested Abby’s certainty that letting him get too close would be a very foolish pleasure. Whether right or wrong, these two face a bumpy ride.

---

This is a great book. Author seems to have some knowledge of native American customs and problems that face many tribes. Good story line. It was just a great romance story.

---

Renee Simons has been many different things in her life: a wife, a working mother, an amateur auto mechanic, vet to a mixed-breed shepherd and a rescue mutt of questionable parentage; unlicensed home decorator as well as an often unsuccessful cook (ask her marketing director son and medical examiner daughter about her spaghetti pie - ugh.) She enjoys painting, photography, swimming, music and travel. She began her first romance novel (still unfinished) while in college and has been reading and writing ever since. Recalling her earliest ambitions to be a painter, she now spends her time painting pictures with words. "'Tis the best of both worlds," she says. "Life is good."
