**BLUEST EYES IN TEXAS (THE) by Linda Crist - [Alt]
A young paralegal in Dallas, Carson Garret is relieved to have a seminar on her schedule for Friday, grateful for the change in what has become a rather mundane work routine. It's a fateful day that will have Carson's life spinning in an entirely different direction the minute she sees the seminar instructor and finds herself captivated by the most amazing blue eyes she's ever seen. A hard-working Austin attorney, determined to improve the legal profession by making it affordable to all and empowering paralegals, Kennedy Nocona plans on offering her seminar and getting together with an old friend afterwards but those plans change when the cute blonde from her seminar happens to show up at the same club later that evening. Immediately drawn to one another, Kennedy and Carson overcome some early misconceptions to find themselves in a blossoming romance that will help one come to terms with the demons from her past and will help the other embrace her sexuality and end the loneliness of recent years. Together, however, the two will find themselves in uncharted and dangerous waters when Carson unknowingly stumbles into a situation at work that will put not only her career at jeopardy but her very life. Linda Crist masterfully takes these two dynamic characters on a fascinating emotional journey from friends to soulmates and lovers, allowing us to experience their growing closeness, the initial moments of excitement and doubts and the eventual joy and passion of two hearts embracing one another. The romance unfolds against a suspenseful background that seems to grow ever-more dangerous as Linda skillfully reveals additional complications to the situation facing her heroines. A delightful, sexy romance and a suspenseful thriller in one package, this novel should keep you glued to that seat and thoroughly entertained. It gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! [See the follow-up story SOUL VESSELS] - 305 pgs., 2000.
SOUL VESSELS by Linda Crist - [Alt]
This follow-up to Linda's marvelous novel, THE BLUEST EYES IN TEXAS, finds Kennedy and Carson on a romantic Halloween getaway on a deserted beach enjoying a campfire, roasted marshmallows...and each other. It is the perfect evening until Kennedy finds herself drawn away from her sleeping lover by ghostly images on the star-lit beach - images that are somehow familiar and that are about to answer questions Kennedy didn't even realize she had. Linda does a terrific job of recapturing the playful, loving relationship of her two heroines while taking the opportunity offered by All Hallows Eve to add a little...spiritual quality to the partnership ;-) A sweet, delightful story perfect for those spookier evenings. - 15 pgs., 2001.
