Book #1 Heart of San Francisco Series


Fooled by a pretty boy once,

shame on him.

Fooled by a pretty boy twice,

shame on me.

Jilted by a fortune hunter, cowgirl Cassady McClare is a spunky Texas oil heiress without a fortune who just as soon hogtie a man as look at him … until Jamie MacKenna, a handsome pauper looking to marry well lassoes her heart. But when Jamie discovers the woman he loves is poorer than him, Cassie finds herself bucked by love a second time, sending her back to Texas to lick her wounds and heal her heart. In her absence, Jamie discovers money can’t buy love, but love built on faith can set a heart free, a truth he discovers a little too late … or is it?

My Review:  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

Julie Lessman has done it again. She’s sucked me into her story world. One thing I love about her novels is the layers of truth, passion, faith, and redemption that are threaded into the stories she writes. Love at Any Cost is an example of this. Jamie, a fortune hunter with a good heart goes after an oil heiress to marry so his sister can have the operation she needs and he can get his family out of the poverty of the Barbary Coast. It’s not easy because Cassie, the oil heiress has been burned by a man who was only after her money before. As Jamie woos Cassie, he finds that he’s fallen hopelessly in love with her. What Jamie doesn’t do is that Cassie’s family wells have gone dry. Warning: As with all Julie Lessman novels, this story will keep you up at night because you won’t be able to put it down. More importantly, it shows we can trust God with out lives and our fortunes because He paid the cost.
