Everything in Annie Douglas' life has

and not seemingly gentle, Annie feels drawn to the handsome, Texas
cowboy. Upon discovering Burke's advertisement for a wife, Annie shyly
asks if he might consider her. 

Dawson wants children; unfortunately, that also includes a wife. His
first wife was a citified hellcat who stole half of his ranch. Now
Burke is determined to find an honest, country girl with no expectations
of love.

accidents, and treachery leads to Annie leaving shattered and alone.
Can their shaking start lead to the possible loving relationship they
both desire but neither is sure of?

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great romantic suspense 18 July 2014
    By Jo-Anne
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Annie is sent to look at some land her step-brother, Sonny, bought in Texas. When she gets to the property, she runs into Burke who asks what she is doing on his land. Annie has no self-confidence because she has been mentally and physically abused. She doesn't trust men and sure doesn't want to get Burke angry but shows him the deed to the land, proving that her step-brother owns it. Burke is a handsome, strong rancher (though pretty gullible) who wants nothing to do with women after his ex-wife took him to the cleaners in their divorce. He does want children so needs a wife but doesn't want love so he has been advertising for a wife. Annie wants a family too so she applies for the 'job'. They get married and everything is actually going pretty good until ex-wife, Alice, shows up and makes life miserable for them.

    This book was really well written with lots of suspenseful scenes that kept me turning the pages. I didn't want to stop reading this so I stayed up most of the night. Alice was such a witch and tried to get rid of Annie in so many terrible ways that I didn't want to believe that someone could actually be as horrible as she was. And then we find out that she has teamed up with Annie's abusive step-brother so they can get Annie's huge inheritance. I felt so sorry for Annie because she wanted to be loved so much but she ends up with Burke who just wants a partner. Then her life gets even worse when Alice and Sonny are against her. You will really get caught up in the lives of the characters in this book. I loved the surprising twists and turns in this story. I highly recommend it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Page Turner. 12 Jan. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    First dip in the world of Kathleen Ball, I love her writing. I was hooked on this page turner. Stayed awake late just to finish it. Couldn't bring myself to stop.
    Burke and Annie's story is pure romance until his ex wife Alice shows her face and starts causing mayhem.
    I hope we'll hear more from Dawson Ranch in the future.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Something missing 7 Aug. 2014
    By Hespy
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed this book -the pace was good and the storyline had plenty of twists and turns. I just feel that there was something missing. The characters were a bit one dimensional and I don't think we were given enough insight into Burke. Not sure if its the way it was written in the first person but something was off. I read a lot of books and as much as you felt sympathy or outrage for some of the characters it all felt a bit flat. This could have been a really great book. The plots line was good and the characters all had a solid foundation but needed fleshing out more.

    Well done Kathleen!
    Although Texas Haven is not of my usual genre (I enjoy reading fast-paced, action packed thrillers) I have to admit that the book was well written despite the many typo errors. The plot was cleverly thought out and put together. Unfortunately, but I have found this with all romance novels, I knew exactly how it would end well before I was even half-way through. I have to apologise to the author, Kathleen Ball, for taking so long to finish the book, but this was only due to pressure of work.
