Temder love story of the old West. A widow who doesn't want anything to do with men (they've all let her down) and the younger man who wants her more than anything else.
This is a wonderful western romance. I could not put it down.
Wonderful book by this new author.
Western romance set in Colorado after the Civil War.
This is part one of a series be sure to read Loving Miranda also. I loved this series. They are the first I have read by this author and I was not disappointed.
Excellent story of a widow afraid to love again and the man who changed her mind.
THE WILD, WILD WEST
Mercy Clarke had no trouble getting a hundred head of cattle to Abilene. Getting back home through five hundred miles of untamed frontier is something else again, especially with a handsome gambler like Thad Buchanan tagging along. He swears to pay her in gold if she guides him to Fort Victory, but she doesn't quite trust his fine manners and gentlemanly ways. And then there's that look in his eyes---he could make her forget that she's sworn off men for good...
As Thad sees it, the same rules apply to playing poker and loving women: it's all about knowing when to hold 'em. And come to think of it, a pretty lady like Mercy Clarke would fit very nicely in his arms. Now, if she could be persuaded to put down that rawhide whip and tell him exactly what she has in mind, he has no doubt they could come to an agreement that will satisfy them both. No doubt at all...
I liked the book. it felt a lot like a "romance" novel, LOL, a bit tame... but once Mercy stopped being a bitch, I could relate to her as a person, and Thad was just sweet.
