Kentucky belle Seraphina Jones craves a dashing stranger worth kissing. When she spies her handsome, half-naked hired hand at the riverbank, she thinks her dreams of romance have come true. But this Texican is wanted for murder.
Jesse Quaid can't let Sera's sweet kisses distract him from rendezvousing with Cass, a childhood friend, to clear his name of a crime he didn't commit.
But then a case of mistaken identity turns Cass into Jesse's deadliest rival for Sera's heart. Now, Sera must find a way to end the feud before the man she loves is lost forever.
(Note: This book introduces Cass, hero of the spin-off series, Lady Law & The Gunslinger.)
"Spellbinding! Ms. deWolfe (draws) you into the story from page one and keeps you eyebrow-deep until the very last word. I laughed loudly and cried soundly while reading this book. I HIGHLY recommend her books to anyone who enjoys historical romance.” ~ Amazon Reviewer (5 stars)
"Adrienne writes from the heart. The best part of the book for me is the wedding ceremony. I pictured this so clear in my head, it felt like I was there with Jesse and Sera." ~ Suzie Welker, Bunny's Reviews (5 stars)
