Falcon Rebel has been father and mother to his girl ever since her mother walked out on them both seventeen years ago. Now Leah’s back to see their daughter—just once, she says. She’s built another life and wants them all to move on. But Falcon’s suspicious. Her story doesn’t add up. Why isn’t she willing to keep the door open between them, at least for Eden’s sake?

Leah can’t tell them the truth—she won’t burden her family with what she must face. But being close to Falcon again has reignited the incredible bond they once shared. They were so young then…and some things never change, including their feelings for each other. Leah thought she could walk away. But nobody loves like a Rebel—even though love might not be enough.

This poignant, compelling love story brings to mind things like–how a lack of or poor communication can devastate, star-crossed lovers, and “He that is without sin, let him cast the first stone.”

Falcon Rebel, when little more than a big kid, took over as head of the family when his father committed suicide. He took his family responsibilities seriously and thought he did the right thing by the girl he loved, when she became pregnant. He loved her, married her, and moved her in with his family, and made decisions that he thought best for them all

He never falters in regard to what he sees as his responsibilities and raises Eden, his daughter, right along with managing the Rebel Ranch to make it prosper. But his heart cries out to Leah, his wife who left for no apparent reason eighteen years ago when Eden was tiny.

Just when he declares it is time to move on, Leah comes back. Emotions run wild and conflicts abound. From this point on, the story kept this reader turning pages and wondering how in the world things could ever work out for a happy-ever-after ending.

Linda Warren’s smooth, unobtrusive writing style sets the reader right in the middle of the characters’ lives and takes that reader on a vicarious journey. With back-story and immediate happenings, she does not excuse the flaws and bad decisions, but reveals how the characters forgive, love, and survive incredible trauma in their lives.

Texas Rebels: Falcon kept me up late. Good entertainment!
