Bestselling author Ana Leigh presents a splendid new novel in her thrilling series featuring the Frasers -- brothers who are rugged, sexy, and as untamed as the Wild West!
California dancehall girl Rory O'Grady dreams of buying a home of her own, but she can't help feeling guilty when her con-artist father steals the map to a gold mine from a handsome stranger. And when Garth Fraser discovers the theft and follows Rory and her father to the mine, he makes it plain that he's not the type of man to give up on anything he wants -- whether it's a windfall or a woman.
The last thing Garth wants to do is team up with the spirited beauty who duped him, but it's the only chance either has to strike gold. Their differences prove no match for the heated desire drawing them together, but neither dares to trust in their passion. Only with a menacing enemy poised to strike will Garth discover how far he's willing to go to protect a love more precious than all the gold in California....
In 1867, Garth Fraser, having survived the Civil War and women, arrives in Buckman, California seeking his uncle Henry's lost gold mine. He stops at the Grotto saloon for a drink, but ends up with a hangover and a dance hall girl Rory O'Grady when she rescues him from being shanghaied. Rory insists he owes her even as he wonders why he cannot remember making love to the beautiful female; the prime reason being he did not.
Rory's traveling companion her dad Paddy steals the gold mine map from Garth. He and Rory team up and soon catch up to her father in the town of Hope where they learn no one was been to the mine in years because it is haunted. . As Rory and Garth investigate the mine, they fall in love, but she knows a respectable man like him will leave a disreputable female like her. However before he can prove she is the one, he knows he must keep her safe from dangerous marauding bandits and an unknown enemy who wants them gone dead or alive.
The third Fraser brother western romance (see THE LAWMAN SAID I DO and THE FRASERS: CLAY) is an entertaining action-packed Americana tale that takes off from the moment the tall stranger enters the Grotto and never slows down as Garth gets involved with O'Grady and father in a series of escapades. HIS BOOTS UNDER HER BED is a fine entry in a delightful mini series.
