Jean Brashear is an American novelist responsible for producing several dozen novels in the romance genre.

+Biography

Jean Brashear started writing at the age of forty-five. She took a decision to pursue a dream that many aspiring authors in her place and her age have chosen to simply give up on, and the gamble paid off.

Jean was always an avid reader. It was an issue that always plagued her household. Her children understood from a young age that Jean couldn’t be bothered to interfere in every unimportant occurrence they encountered whenever she had a good book open before her.

And her habit of disappearing into her stories became a bit of an issue, with her children eventually figuring out the best way to draw Jean out of her many book-driven trances. But even with her love for books, Jean never truly believed that she could make it as an author.

She chose to ignore her dream for the longest time. It wasn’t until her last child finally reached high school that Jean Brashear began to seriously consider her situation. She will be the first to admit that she isn’t exactly sure what drove her to take that first leap of faith.

And it was definitely a leap of faith to write her first book. She had no training in the field and neither did she seek it. Rather, she simply put pen to paper and began giving the stories hidden within her mind some life.

Jean had an advantage that few aspiring authors enjoy. She received a lot of encouragement from her friends and family to make something of her raw talent. It helped that Jean was so determined to succeed.

She put her determination into action by swearing to her friends and family that she would pursue writing for at least five years; and knowing that they would hold her to that promise, Jean got down to business.

Unfortunately, the publishing industry was far more complicated than Jean could have imagined. She didn’t think it would take her more than five weeks or even five months to hit the publishing jackpot.

Even after learning the truth about publishing, though, Jean kept working at it. She kept writing and submitting manuscripts, enduring nasty rejections into the process before finally selling her first book. It took Jean two years to reach this point in her career, and her determination has paid off several times over.

Jean has admitted that the prospect of writing initially filled her with dread, but she was also exhilarated by the idea and she has now become quite outspoken about the importance of not putting one’s dreams off for any reason.

The author is always pushing her fans to take their leap of faith now.

Jean Brashear primarily writes romance literature and women’s fiction. She has won a number of accolades for her work over the years, this including the Romance Times Book reviews Career Achievement award.

She has also been a RITA finalist on a number of occasions. Her work has been compared to the likes of Nora Roberts and Robyn Carr, not to mention Susan Mallery. Her stories constitute very engaging characters.

Even though Jean regrets waiting so long before pursuing her dream, she is still happy with what she has achieved so far. For Jean, it is better to be a late-bloomer than to not try at all.

+Texas Secrets

Maddie Collins is a burgeoning chef who is shocked to inherit a family homeplace whose existence she wasn’t aware of. The homeplace is bequeathed to her by the husband of a woman that her father once loved.

Boone Gallagher is a former SEAL who comes back to Texas to find that his father, who once drove him away from home, has dropped one final bombshell into his life. His home has been handed down to a woman who has no interest in owning it.

However, it is within Boone’s interest to keep Maddie there for thirty days, otherwise, it will be lost to both of them.

There is a general understanding that this book is sweet and enjoyable, definitely something to pass the time on a long flight. However, it is also quite predictable. There is nothing that truly stands out. That doesn’t make the book bad. However, this isn’t the sort of novel that one remembers after they finally put it down.

None the less, Jean Brashear makes a decent effort and proves that she definitely has some talent.

+Texas Bad Boy

Devlin Marlowe is a Texas Bad Boy with a big secret. He knows the truth about Lacey DeMille. Everyone worships Lacey like they would loyalty, consumed by her beauty, intelligence, and money.

However, Devlin knows that the foundations of Lacey’s life are a lie. Once upon a time, his desire for Lacey led to Devlin’s exile. Now he is back and he cannot wait to exact sweet vengeance on Lacey.

However, the revenge he seeks might cost Devlin far more than he could have imagined.

This is the third book in the Gallaghers of Morning Star series and it, more or less, delivers the quality that one might have come to expect from an author like Jean Brashear.

As the conclusion to the Morning star series, the book tries to close as many loose threads as possible. The crux of the story isn’t new and basically explores the trope of teenage love between a rich girl and poor boy.

Devlin was a private investigator when he was introduced in the first book, and he was shocked to learn that the lost sister of a client he was assigned to locate was actually the only girl he ever loved.

Lacey was raised in a wealthy family and grew accustomed to getting everything she wanted. However, that wasn’t the case for the only boy she ever loved and from whom she was separated.

Raised to be the society princess that her parents wanted and bowing to their every whim, Lacey’s world is shaken when Devlin returns to her life and reveals the truth about her origins.

This story builds upon the characters of Devlin and Lacey, making them even more engaging protagonists.
