Overview

A strong-willed beauty finds herself in the arms of the handsome drifter from her past, in this second book in the sizzling series set in the Old West, from USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly Jenkins

As manager of one of the finest hotels in Arizona Territory, Portia Carmichael has respect and stability--qualities sorely missing from her harsh childhood. She refuses to jeopardize that by hitching herself to the wrong man. Suitors are plentiful, but none of them has ever looked quite as tempting as the family friend who just rode into town...and none has looked at her with such intensity and heat.

Duchess. That's the nickname Kent Randolph gave Portia when she was a young girl. Now she's a stunning, intelligent woman--and Kent has learned his share of hard lessons. After drifting through the West, he's learned the value of a place to settle down, and in Portia's arms he's found that and more. But convincing her to trust him with her heart, not just her passion, will be the greatest challenge he's known--and one he intends to win...

Jenkinss exquisitely written second Old West romance (after Forbidden) soars with passion between scenes of gritty action as a feisty heroine and down-to-earth hero shape their future against race, class, and gender expectations in the Arizona Territory during the 1880s. Despite a steady flow of suitors, no-nonsense Portia Carmichael stays focused on her job as the manager of her aunt and uncles luxurious Fontaine Hotel. Then the return of family friend Kent Rudolph starts playing havoc with her self-control. Kent is mesmerized by the Arizona landscape and by Portia, who has blossomed into an attractive, confident woman. Hes aware of Portias horrific childhood and knows hell need to be patient in courting her. When Portia boldly asks Kent for a kiss, he is delighted to introduce her to the joys of sensual pleasures. As their daily encounters build bonds of trust and stability, their sexual desires ignite their thoughts of a future together. Well-plotted story lines involving the rough-and-tumble west add richness and an authentic feel without overpowering the relationship. This heartfelt story and its endearing characters and gratifying ending will leave readers breathing a sigh of pure contentment. Agent: Nancy Yost, Yost Literary. (Jan.)
