In 1888 London, Lady Elizabeth Summersby learns that it takes only one indiscretion to become pregnant. Her one night stand lover Dirk Ballinger had returned to his ranch in America when Elizabeth¿s father sends him a letter informing him that he impregnated his daughter and expects the honorable action of marriage. Though it was not Dirk who went to London, he knows he must marry because his nefarious outlaw relative impersonated him in England. When a gang holds up the coach containing Elizabeth and her maid Molly Riordan, they take the lady as a hostage. Dirk finds an injured Molly and thinks she is his betrothed. He rejects her explanations and marries her. They begin to fall in love, but how can she persuade him to help her find her Irish émigré father and the missing Elizabeth while he must convince her he was not the rascal in London. NO PLACE FOR A LADY is an amusing, exhilarating western romance that engages the audience from start to finish due to the strong cast. Readers will enjoy the battle of wits between the genders as love blossoms amidst the lead couple and a secondary duet. Deb Stover provides her usual delicious tale that Americana romance readers will conclude is a delightful treasure. Harriet Klausner
