This is the first narration we've heard by Actors Studio member Coleen Marlo, and it's prime listening as she captures the voice of our plucky heroine Sage Tyler. Marlo is an accomplished actress and knows not to imbue these characters with outre Texas accents but delivers her reading with subtle permutations of the sounds of the Lone Star State.
With TEXAS! SAGE, the final offering in the Tyler family trilogy thye focus is on Sage, a smart gal with an MBA from the University of Texas. Yes, she's intelligent, quick, but perhaps not so adept at picking men. Sage is expecting Santa to bring her an engagement ring but instead she finds a lump of coal - in other words she's jilted. So she returns home for the holidays, hoping to get over her fiancé. Well. There is a lot to keep her mind occupied - the family business has taken a nose dive and there's a rather annoying new guy around, Harlan Boyd, a drifter hired to try to salvage Tyler Drilling.
Well, this is Sandra Brown - need we say that sparks fly between Harlan and Sage, especially when they begin working and bedding together? But, Harlan has some issues in his past and is disinclined to commitment. Brown fans well know how TEXAS! SAGE will turn out but will thoroughly enjoy hearing about it from Coleen Marlo.
