Rusty Briggs knows his chance of finding a man while living outside of Sweetwater, Texas are slim to none. Few know about his little secret, but his ranch hands have run out on him and the folks in town aren’t as hospitable as they were before the incident. He’s resigned himself to the fact that working his ranch will have to be enough or he will need to sell and move to the big city…that is until he meets Trent Anderson.

On the outside Trent appears to be a man with full access to silver spoons and caviar dreams, but his parents cut him off and tossed him out once they discovered he was gay. After living on the street, selling himself, then ending up in a destructive relationship, Trent pulled his life together and came out on top, all by using his compassion and intelligence—or so Trent thinks. Recently, Trent’s grandfather passed away and left him his ranch, as long as he meets a few conditions, like living in Texas for ninety days. But Trent’s secret benefactor, Reed, is dissatisfied that Trent isn’t living in Atlanta and wants him back. The only issue for Reed is that Trent is involved with Rusty.

Money, greed, lust, and power work to keep Rusty and Trent apart. They are forced to trust each other when life falls apart, but can they actually become close enough in ninety days to create a solid, trusting relationship, or will old relationships come between them?

Tempted in Texas by author Sara York is a sweet romance I really loved reading. We have the story of Rusty and Trent.
Rusty is a gay cowboy in a small town. This makes his life really hard. He is doing all the ranch work by himself. He really just wants a special man in his life to share the ranch life with. He just doesn't have the time or know where to look for Mr. Right.
Trent is openly gay. He has to live in the town for 90 days to for-fill his grandfather's will request. He works at a shelter and the money he would get from his inheritance will go for that. So he is very motivated to stay.
I really liked Trent, he is kind, loving just a little bratty, and just a fun all around character to see unfold.

I love how Ms. York has great character connections. Her men in this book really feel well rounded and full of life. That makes me love them too. I also like how even though the bigoted town thing has been done before, it was not pressed too hard in this book. I really like that most of the concentration is on the characters and their love. This is the book you pick up when you want to believe true love does conquer all.
