Besides being the resident Harlequin Historical hos here at The Pond, Sybil and I are massive, colossal, hardcore western romance junkies. So when Sybil first blogged about Jo Goodman‘s upcoming book, Never Love A Lawman, back in January we both immediately thought, “Wow, that sounds like a western.” We didn’t really have much to go on at the time though. Well guess what duckies?
We Have A Western!!!!!!!!
Bask in the glory. Revel in the cowboy goodness. And someone scrape me off the ceiling. I know Sybil will be overjoyed….just as soon as she overcomes her Internet connectivity issues from Hell.
“Rachel Bailey may seem like just a beautiful newcomer to most of Reidsville, Colorado, but Sheriff Wyatt Cooper knows she’s much more. Through a twist of fate, Rachel is the inheritor of a very valuable commodity: control of the railway that keeps the isolated mining town connected to the world. That is, she will be, if she agrees to the surprising stipulation in her benefactor’s will-that she marry Wyatt.
Rachel has no choice: refusing the marriage could put all of Reidsville in the hands of an outsider, and not just any outsider but the cruel tyrant she has come here to escape. Yet living with Wyatt will be her greatest challenge. For he has a tempting way about him that makes Rachel forget theirs is a marriage in name only- until her frightening past shows up to remind them exactly how much they have at stake…”
Oh. My. God.
Could my life get any better?
