The Texan’s Favor is a historical romance by D. K. Deters. In Texas in the year 1877, Katlin (Kat) Collins and Jake Fontaine have a chance meeting in which she saves him in a shootout against three outlaws - one of whom had killed Jake's brother. Being a Texas Ranger, he tells Kat he will arrest anyone who commits a crime, regardless of who they are. This frightens Kat, as her corrupt uncle had accused her of theft. Although she does not trust him, Kat eventually falls in love with Jake and together they journey to St. Louis but on their return, Kat's uncle threatens Jake with a choice: marriage or death. With a noose around Jake's neck, he and Kat are betrothed and make love, but, worried she will bring shame to the Fontaine name, Kat takes the marriage certificate and flees. Two years later, she returns to claim her inheritance from Jake's father in a complex story that leads to a loathing to love romance once more, along with their daughter who had been conceived out of the love they shared on that one fateful night. Many answers become clear as to why Kat ran from her kin who wanted the Fontaine clan dead and why.

I truly did not know whether to laugh or cry while reading this brilliantly written Western romance. D. K. Deters has, in my opinion, written the perfect love story while penning The Texan’s Favor and I actually lost quite a bit of sleep. The mystery of what I'd read kept me awake, so I read some more, laughing at what I'd almost missed while turning the pages. Rarely does a book come along that pricks at both your conscious and subconscious, but this tale is one of those special few. Love-hate relationships exist in so many places, but Jake and Kat's story is one that will steal the hearts of many. I wholeheartedly recommend The Texan's Favor to fans of great Western romance novels, as I believe it will become a famed romance to last a lifetime and more. Hats off to you, D. K. Deters. I look forward to reading more from you in the future.
