When half-breed Jess RObbins rode into Cheyenne to chase down a gang of cattle thieves, he was sure of three things: The townsfolk would openly scorn him; the women would secretly want him; and the rustlers would definitely fear him. What he didn't count on was a flame-haired spitfire named Lissa Jacobson, who had her own manhunt in mind.
Dark, dangerous, and deadly with his Colt revolver, Jess was absolutely forbidden to the spoiled, pampered daughter of Cheyenne's richest rancher. But from the moment Lissa stumbled upon him in his bath, she decided she had to have the virile gunman. Pitting her innocence against his vast experience, Lissa knew she was playing with fire - but she never guessed that the raging inferno of desire would consume them both.
This book starts out with Melissa Jacobson (Lissa) a cattle baron's daughter having an attraction to Jesse Robbins (Jess) a half breed part greaser gunman that her father has hired to take care of rustlers. Soon Lissa catches Jess's attention and their relationship begins. They're many people and obstacles the couple has to overcome to be together. The racism and bigotry of Lissa's family and "friends" causes problems from the beginning. But there are a few true friends that help along the way after they are won over by the love the couple shares. The love scenes alone are worth the read! Shirl Henke has written a real winner.
I finds myself liking this author more each time I read one of her books. Good storyline,throw in a fair amount of sexual scenes, that didn't ovewhelm the story as a whole..all in all a pretty darn good read...that is if you enjoy the old west,and a bit of mystery thrown in.
