It only takes 3 words to describe this book: Just plain fun! Theres an aptly named villain Mr. Wylie. He doesnt just want most things, he wants the whole town.

His biggest impediment is lovely Cady McGill, owner of the only other saloon in town. Suddenly, real trouble comes to town in the person of the notorious gunfighter, Jesse Gault. He wears only black, smokes black cigarettes, wears a black patch over one eye and has a vengeful snarl. The only person that is unafraid of him is Cady McGill.

Mr. Wylie is sure Cady has hired the gunslinger and Cady is just as sure that Wylie has brought Gault to town to kill her. Gault, however, has other plans. His reputation is so frightening that strangers beg him to take their money and let them live.

The ironies will have you chuckling through the book. This is a lighthearted look at life in the West.

When a man dressed in black, riding a black stallion and wearing an eagle-handle gun rides into town, everyone in Paradise believes he's the notorious gunfighter Jesse Gault and their guilty consciousness go into gear.

Jesse takes a room at Cady McGill's saloon and is soon propositioned to take a man's money, claim he did him in and leave town. Jesse complies even though he has never heard the man's name or the name of the man who supposedly hired him. When this happens time and again, Jesse realizes he can be quite comfortable in Paradise.

Cady has more to worry about than a gunman. Ever since she inherited the saloon and an old petered-out gold mine, she's had her hands full with her rival saloon owner and mine owner. She knows he's out to ruin her any way he can and Cady wonders if Jesse's been hired to do the job.

But the sweet-taking outlaw finds Cady just the right kind of woman for him and he begins to find a way to win her trust and her heart. Still, how can a hard-working woman trust a drifter who makes his living by the gun? And what happens when he approaches her arch rival with a deal and then finds himself facing another Jesse Gault?

As the owner of a saloon in Paradise, Oregon, Cady McGill is surviving in a man's world. She can't afford to let her guard down for anyone-especially the man in black who arrives out of nowhere to arouse her suspicions...and her senses. He calls himself Jesse Gault-an achingly attractive stranger with guns on his hips and a mocking smile on his lips. But Cady has seen her share of swindlers, and she knows that Gault's charms are as deceptive as his name. Yet even as sudden gunfire blazes, desire flares in Cady's heart. Now she must fight her own deepest feelings as a man who is not what he seems awakens a tender, abiding passion that can only be the real thing.
