Overview

They were sworn enemies by day
And passionate lovers by night

In a rough Nevada boomtown, Jesse Reardon called every shot -- until beautiful Caroline Bennett stepped off the stagecoach!

Excerpt:

The cowboy moved so quickly Caroline didn't have time to think, much less react. One moment he was standing there looking at her across the blazing hot Nevada street, the next moment, she was in his arms.
"Why, you—!"
Her protests were stopped as he bent his head toward her. He was going to kiss her! A complete stranger, a cowboy she'd met just moments ago when she stepped off the dusty stagecoach was actually going to put his mouth on hers and kiss her. Things like this never happened in Boston!
Just before she thought she would certainly swoon from the heat and the breathlessness and the shocking thrill of anticipation, the sound of gunshots pierced the fog she was in and a bullet whizzed past her left ear.
The cowboy swooped her up into his arms then dropped to the ground and rolled with her under the stagecoach. Her heavy skirts rode up over her thighs and she struggled to pull them down before he got a glimpse of her lacy pantalettes but it was no use. He had her pinned with his body and the way they fit together was shameful. His chest was pressed so close to her that she was certain he could feel the outline of her breasts through her blue dress. His hipbones jutted against the slight soft curve of her stomach and she dared not imagine the cause of the powerful heat pressing against her belly.
He took full advantage of the situation and positioned himself between her legs and she hated herself for noticing just how handsome he really was. She'd never felt more vulnerable—or more alive—in her entire life.
"You needn't look so pleased," she hissed as another round of gunfire ricocheted off the stagecoach above them. "I don't know how any decent person can live in such a terrible, lawless place like—" She fumbled for words as he brought his mouth closer to hers.
"Welcome to Silver Spur," Jesse Reardon said.
And then he kissed her.

Enjoyable Read! It was hard at times to read because it was so emotional - sometimes in a good way and sometimes it hurt to continue because I wanted to slap the "H" because he was so hard headed. I would recommend this hot western story. Our 'h' is smart, sensible and kind. The secondary character's are very interesting too. (ljb)

The other books I've read by this writer were on my list of favorites. But I have gotten to page 128 and counted the same 6 page argument almost word for word recurring 9 times so far. Don't think I'll finish and I am abolutely sending this to archive si I can delete it from my library.

Really great story from the start to finish! And what a great price! Once I started reading I couldn't put it down and I'm so glad I tried this book out! Highly recommended historic romance story!

Midnight Lover is a fast-paced, sexy western historical romance that was originally published in 1989 by Pocket Books. It has a new cover and a new lease on life thanks to the digital revolution. It's fun, definitely hot, and will have you on the edge of your seat at the end. I hope you'll download a sample and spend some time with Caroline and Jesse in Silver Spur. (PS: I couldn't submit this without assigning a star rating. I would've been crazy not to give it a 5, right?)
