Wow ... Excellent! Considering this is an Ellora's Cave publication, this is a beautifully written romance. I really cannot say enough about what a pleasant surprise this book was. I really have never read anything from Ellora's Cave that I would describe as well written. This book has all the erotic elements with an actual story and characters and good writing.

Packaged in the form of a western historical, you have all the ingredients of a historical romance: 1860's Wyoming, outsider alpha male hero, the local girl smart yet dainty heroine with a lot of inner strength, and some kind of basic mystery to hold it all together. If it wasn't for the rather graphic sex scenes and dirty talk, this could be from any of the usual romance publishers. As an avid romance and erotica reader, the comment describing this book as having "tepid" erotic scenes must be reading flat out porn. This book was very graphic compared to any of the fare from standard publishers (Avon, Berkeley, Dell) and frankly at moments the sex scenes felt almost out of place with the rest of the story. However they were certainly scintillating and sexy on top of the terrific romance.

Typically reading Regency and English historicals I can't speak to the accuracy of this book but for this reader, it was excellent and satisfied me as much as some of my very favorite romance authors. LOVED IT! !
