How many siblings do you have? I have four. I'm the oldest of five girls. Growing up, I always had a person to play with. We'd often create the best forts and loved to set up our Barbies throughout the three bedrooms and one bathroom. I never felt alone.
But they were also the meanest people at times. We could cut each other with simply a few sharp words. I never had any space of my own, since we shared rooms. Whatever was mine was also expected to be shared.
Maybe your own sibling relationships were similar. I had a saying though. I could say and do what I wanted to my sisters but if someone else hurt them, the person had to answer to me. Blood was blood.
Janalyn Knight's final book in the Howelton Texas series, Cowboy Strong, has such a sibling relationship. The heroine cares for her twin brother who'd been injured overseas. They are a pair. And while she is frustrated beyond belief at the issues for caring for him, she will do anything for him. Blood matters!
This story is one which will have you thinking about your own family-brother or sister. Are you willing to go the distance for them? It's a compelling read and one you will want for yourself!

Acacia has cared for her quadriplegic, cognitively impaired twin brother for two long years. Hope arrives in the form of Noah, the rocking-hot new cowboy physical therapist. Dumped by her former fiancé when her brother came back injured from Afghanistan, it takes several months for her to realize that Noah is the real deal. That is, until her second date with him.
With Noah’s goodnight kiss comes a terrible shock. Heartbroken, Acacia shuts the handsome cowboy out of her life.
But life is about to throw her a curve ball. Can she face the crisis and still care for Bobby alone? Or will she have to swallow her pride and call on Noah, the closest thing she has to a friend in San Antonio?
Noah didn’t want the night to end. Not yet. Every nerve in his body was in tune with the woman standing next to him.
Acacia turned and her look said maybe she didn’t want it to, either.
Something had happened back there at the club. Something special. He reached for her arms and inched her toward him, his gaze never leaving hers.
Close now, she slipped her arms around his neck, and he pulled her to him. She buried her fingers in his hair. If there was one thing that drove Noah crazy, it was having a woman play with his hair. Her nails scraped over his scalp with just the right pressure to send pleasure shooting down his spine. Her dark eyes were wide, searching. He covered her mouth with his, in a slow, warm exploring kiss that quickly went from sweet and tentative to explosive heat. How long had he wanted her? How long had he waited?
She returned his kiss, pressing her body to him, pulling herself up, as if begging for more.
He pushed her to the wall, cupped her face in his hands and explored her with his tongue, stroking her lips, teasing her, feeling her trembling against him. He ran his hand along the length of her body, cupped the curve of a full breast. Even through the layers of her dress and bra, he could feel the firm ball of her nipple. He wanted to pinch it, love on it, but there was too much fabric in the way. He kissed her harder and she arched into his body.
Breathing fast, he pushed his thigh between her legs, and she whimpered.
