A legendary gunfighter brings big trouble to a frontier town, and ignites the passion of a local saloon owner
When Jesse Gault saunters into Paradise, Oregon, with a gun on each hip, the town is instantly abuzz. What could a legendary gunslinger want in Paradise? And what will the townsfolk have to do to keep his trouble from becoming their own? Cady McGill, proprietor of the Rogue Tavern, thinks she may know what Gault has come for, and she doesn’t like it one bit.
Cady’s ongoing battle with Merle Wylie, who has been buying up or burning down properties all over town, is coming to a head, as Wylie tries to get his hands on her tavern and her dried-up gold mine. Hiring a gunfighter like Gault would be just Wylie’s speed. But Cady senses something else behind Gault’s mysterious façade, and as the two grow closer she learns that his closely guarded secrets could spell life or death for the town—and for Cady herself.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Mean-looking gunfighter Jesse Gault rides into the peaceful gold-rush town of Paradise, Ore., past Swensen's Good Eats & Drinks and Noble Fir Street and lots of other places with homespun names worthy of Lake Wobegone. Dressed all in black with a patch over one eye and spurs that make a fearsome sound when he jangles along, he shakes up the population without having to fire a shotwhich is a good thing, because Jesse can't hit the broad side of a barn. He is a fraud and a con man who pretends to be a killer so that people with something to hide will pay him not to shoot them. Underneath is a sweet guy dying to raise horses and whose dreams intersect with those of Cadence "Cady" McGill, the owner of Paradise's Rogue saloon, who herself dreams of taking off her corsets and tending an orchard. Gaffney (To Love and to Cherish) is a fresh, funny voice in romance and in Cady she has created a spunky heroine who finds herself a hero and a happy ending without being reduced to a cloying clich. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Before he even gets to the saloon, the entire town of Paradise knows that a dangerous gunslinger has ridden into town. What they don't know is why the man, who calls himself Gault, is thereor who has hired him. However, intrepid Cady McGill, the no-nonsense saloon owner, doesn't care. There's more to Gault than meets the eye, and Cady is just the person to figure it out. An enigmatic, slightly schizoid hero who makes his living off of guilty people, an independent heroine who takes nothing for granted, and a rather off-beat plot add interest to this lively, exceptionally well-written romance. Gaffney (Wild at Heart, Topaz, 1997), a Romance Writers of America (RWA) Golden Heart winner, lives in Blue Ridge Summit, Pa.

    Deanna, an avid reader

    I thought this book was a pretty good read. Very light and enjoyable. Did take a while to get started but I'm glad I stuck with it. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a romance.

    I disagree with the others.

    Caddie McGill is a saloon owner with big dreams and a bigger heart. For years she has battled the man who wants to control the town, appropriately named Mr. Wyle, for control of her gold mine. Though it has ostensibly played out, it is hers, and she wants to keep it; more importantly, to keep her enemy from having it. However, Caddie is up against a foe who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. <BR><BR>Then, notorious gunfighter Jesse Gault enters town. With a legend that proeceeds him, Gault finds that people are willing to do whatever it takes to please him and to keep their lives. Only the lovely saloon owner appears unintimidated by him and the potential danger he poses. Despite this, he is attracted to her. Though she hates to admit it, even to herself, for men have treated her badly all her life, Caddie feels something for Gault. There is much more to this gunfighter than meets the eye, and as he makes a place in the town for himself, Jesse finds his way into Caddie's heart. When his secret is revealed, will he continue to have her love, or even to live?<BR><BR>***** Humor and romance combine to give this novel a touch that is reminescent of the James Garner SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL.... duet of movies. A spunky heroine, ordinary guy hiding behind a larger than life image, colorful townsfolk, and a comedic surprise twist make this a light novel that many will find easily enjoyable, especially when it is spiced up with very hot love scenes. ***** </p><BR> Reviewed by Amanda Killgore.
