Overview

Involving, wrenching, tender, poignant, dramatic, and "un-putdownable" are just a few of the ways readers describe the intensely moving romantic stories of bestselling author Elaine Coffman.

Jennifer Baxter was a woman who did as she pleased. But when she ran south of the border, her father sent Jay Culhane, a rugged gunslinger, to bring her home. Not about to take orders from any man, Jennifer fought the arrogant stranger, recklessly challenging his resolve to tame her. But how could Culhane control his own growing desire for a woman who dared him to believe in the power of love?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Coffman ( My Enemy, My Love ) contrives an irksome series of chase scenes in this aimless romance set in 1880s Texas. A father worried about the safety of his headstrong daughter Jenny, who has gone to Mexico to start a school, hires Jay, a gunslinger of questionable repute, to retrieve her. Jay falls in love with Jenny from a picture and vows to bed as well as deliver her. He wastes no time, forcing her to disrobe at gunpoint at their first encounter. This scantily motivated act sets up the pattern for the rest of the book. Jenny is endangered; Jay rescues her; Jay makes advances; Jenny is aroused but also infuriated, and tries to flee his custody. Coffman attempts to relieve the tedium by introducing a tragic past for Jay and a daffy maiden aunt for Jenny, but her lewd tale is beyond salvation. Author tour. (Mar.)
