Loved it. True western, romance & lots of chuckles.
*Starred Review* He's a rogue and a rascal. She's a social reformer and crusader. He owns a saloon and bordello. She's a temperance worker. He supported the South. She's a "damnyankee." He's a chauvinist. She's a suffragist. He's a sexy rake. She's "Miss Iron Corset." He wants to name their new town "Whiskey Flats." She's campaigning hard for "Pretty Prairie." But the main thing that Lacey Van Schuyler Durango, editor of the Crusader, and Blackie O'Neal, proprietor of the Black Garter, are at odds over is a piece of prime Oklahoma land. He wants to build a first-class liquor establishment, and she thinks it's the perfect site for publishing a newspaper. Gentry, author of To Tame a Texan (2003), presents another wonderful battle-of-the-sexes novel, in which a little bit of Guys and Dolls, a touch of lysistrata, and a whole lot of Gentry's own special style combine to make a most enjoyable read.
