Wendy is having a bad night. She is one her way to Hollywood and decided to take a detour through Dallas because of bad weather. Unfortunately, she picks the worst exit in Dallas to stop for gas. When she gets car-jacked, the thief takes off with everything. All of her possessions in the U-Haul trailer, all of her money in the glove compartment - all gone. Now she is left with no ID, and no money.

Wolfe had a hard day and was looking for a little relaxation at home. In turn he finds Wendy stranded and takes her home with him. This is not something that he normally does but it is raining and cold. Wolfe might be big and mean looking, but he is a teddy bear at heart. He protects those he cares about and Wendy soon becomes someone he cares deeply for.

Wendy is set on going to Hollywood and keeps talking about it. Hollywood has been a dream of hers for years and nothing will be getting in her way, even her feelings for Wolfe.

It was funny to see Wendy and Wolfe slink and move around the other when all they wanted to do was love the other one. The sexual tension between the two was electric. You didn’t know when it would light up and what would happen when they did get together.

Wendy and Wolfe both have things in their past that make them skeptical about having a loving and lasting relationship. Wolfe didn’t think anyone could love a man like him, not with his looks. But it takes someone special to let him know she loves his looks and loves the person he is. Wendy wreaks havoc on Wolfe’s life and he doesn’t know what he has been missing until she comes into his life. Wendy is lonely and begins to shine while she stays with Wolfe.

Tall, Dark and Texan is a wonderful story. I couldn’t put the story down; I had to know what Wendy would do next and what Wolfe had planned as well. The secondary characters rounded out the story, making it all that more enjoyable. Tall, Dark and Texan is not a story to be missed.
