In this Western Romance set in the 1890s, Sarah Brighton, an opinionated journalist from St. Louis, travels to wild and wooly Santa Fe, New Mexico, to investigate the suspicious death of her cousin.
Sarah, the suffragette, is determined to show every male that women deserve respect as equals. To prove it, she carries a derringer in her reticule and evening dresses, and exotic perfume in her saddlebags. Enter the handsome sheriff who has a reputation with hot women and fast guns. Sarah’s hatred for this dashing devil soon turns into passion. Hands that linger, racing hearts, slurpy kisses and frequent rolls in the hay should satisfy most Romance readers.—Phyllis Morreale-de la Garza
