Overview

All Deacon wants to do is set things right with Rhea, and never come back. He knows it won’t be easy, but maybe if she stopped pointing that rifle at him. . .
All Rhea wants to do is live her life as a self-proclaimed widow. It’s been easy enough until Deacon returns and she is forced to live as his wife or admit her deceit to everyone.
Somehow, they must work together to keep their growing number of lies straight; alone, they must work to keep their feelings buried because despite Deacon’s denials, they both know it’s only a matter of time before he goes back again. . .

Meet the Author

The first book Laura ever owned was On the Banks of Plum Creek, which still sits up on the top shelf with the rest of the Little House series. She blames her mother for her book addiction because it was her mother who always had (still has) a couple books on the go, and who used to read and watch The Edge of Night at the same time. Laura had been scribbling things for years before she decided to seriously sit down and write. It helped that she and her husband had just moved 700 km away from their families, it was the dead of winter and she was about 49 months pregnant with their second child, all of which gave her the excuse she needed to hunker down and get at it. That first book will never ever ever see the light of day again, but it was a launching pad for her second addiction – writing. Her books have been described as "delightful," "clever," and "smart, sassy and refreshingly different ." After spending eight years in the Canadian north, Laura now lives back home in southwestern British Columbia with her husband, three sons, a turtle named Sheldon and an extremely energetic German Shepherd. She loves old tattered books, good movies, country music and the Yankees.

I wasn't sold on it when I first started reading, but it won me over eventually. This book is surprisingly well written, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good romance novel.

Really love this book, can't wait to read more. Hoping there is a second book to this, what do you think Laura? Something to think about - the son of the devil - aw how did you think of that - thought he would have been more devilish!!!. Please about extended it so we can what happened to them, especially if they eventually had a baby.

In 1882 after a decade being away from home, Deacon returns to Penance, Texas, to atone for the sin of abandoning the woman he loved. He owes his beloved Rhea an explanation and more. However, his greeting by Rhea is harsher than he expected and used to violence from his outlaw family he anticipated what he thought would be the worst thing to ever happen to him. Instead no wrath matches that of a scorned woman as she shoots him.

Rhea feels guilty that she allowed her temper to ignite. She takes him into her home to nurse him back to health. Deacon is thankful that he has time to prove to Rhea that he loves her and will not leave her again. She has doubts but takes a second chance on love until his sister arrives to persuade him to return to the family¿s outlawing ways

DANCING WITH THE DEVIL is a fun late nineteenth century western romance starring a man with outlaw DNA and the woman who loves him but doubts his sincerity as she believes his blood is thicker than their relationship. Readers will appreciate this fine second chance gender war as Deacon tries to prove her wrong but despairs he can as Rhea knows men like him leave. When his family arrives to bring the ¿back¿ sheep back into their outlawing ways, even fans will wonder whether he will go with them. This is an engaging character driven western romance.

Enjoyed the story. It was interesting to see how the story would end. Just over 200 pages but at times seemed longer.

Wasn't bad and did keep my interest enough to finish. The concept is engaging however...was a bit confusing dropping into what seemed to be the middle of their relationship. Each book should stand on its own even if characters are introduced in other books so a bit of explanation in this case could have gone a long way for me. Nicely done all in all would read more by this author.

Enjoyed Deacon and Rhea's story. Lots of sexual tension. It is a good read but I just think it dragged on a bit too much. 552 pages
