Overview

Throw a sassy whiskey slinger together with a down-on-his-luck cowboy and what do you get? A match made in the Last Chance Saloon...

She’s No Lady

Lark Van Schuyler can take care of herself -- and has ever since she ran away from home and wound up in Buck Shot, Oklahoma. Taking care of others is a novelty she can’t afford. Until she sees a man deep in his drink and being cheated at poker. Lark decides to do him a favor...

He’s No GentlemanThe last thing Larado needs is more booze -- especially in his lap. Just when he’s about to clean up at cards, a no-account soiled dove drops a drink on him. It’s her own dang fault that she loses her job. He never expects to see her again. Especially not during a bank hold-up. In Texas. And married -- to him.

They’re Made For Each Other

Being tied down to a pretty gal and her crazy donkey is turning out to be the worst fix Larado’s ever found himself in. The West isn’t big enough for both of them. But maybe love is...

"Sharp, sexy repartee -- filled with wit and ribald humor, double-crosses and heated passion, this is the most delightful Western of the season." --Romantic Times, on To Tempt A Texan (4 ½ stars, Top Pick, and KISS Award winner)

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Gentry offers another pleaser with this light frontier romance that combines a sassy heroine, a penniless cowboy, false identities and the author's typically lively pace. Lark Van Schuyler, who fled her home for a life of independence, is managing just fine as a barmaid in dusty Buck Shot, Okla., until she befriends Larado, a drunken Texas cowboy who gets her fired, then unwittingly involves her in a violent bank robbery sparked by local crook Snake. With a posse after them, the two duped innocents flee separately, only to meet again coincidentally months later in a tiny west Texas town. Thinking to protect herself from the law, Lark answers an ad from a Sheriff Lawrence Witherspoon seeking a wife and discovers the sheriff is Larado. Since he doesn't seem to recognize her, Lark also adopts a false identity, posing as her own demure twin sister, Lark, and endures a very proper courtship by an apparently shy Larado. Although Lark attempts to learn domestic skills, it's her tomboyish cowhand know-how that proves critical when Larado and the town are in danger. Engaging minor characters, witty repartee and the lively tension of the masquerade create an engaging hold over the reader until all true selves are happily revealed at the end. (Mar.)

    A lighthearted western romance

    In 1890 in Buck Shot, Oklahoma Territory Lark Van Schuyler is used to caring for herself ever since she ran away from home in search of her twin Lacey. However, the niece of a wealthy rancher, she normally avoids getting involved with other people¿s foolishness, but feels sorry for the drunken cowhand being cheated at cards by Snake in the Last Chance Saloon. She intercedes, but loses her job.----- Snake persuades Laredo Hudson to case out the bank. The next he knows he is involved in a hold-up, but he and Snake separate and he escapes thanks to Lark. He reaches the rendezvous point, but only Snake¿s girl is there. He leaves the part of the loot he took from the bank with the girl and leaves for Texas with Lark, unaware that Snake is coming after him for he thinks Laredo has his half the loot with him.----- TO TEASE A TEXAN is a lighthearted western romance starring a delightful courageous heroine and a seemingly pathetic cowboy who makes Pauline seem perilous. The action-packed story line is fun to follow as Laredo seems to land in one problem situation after another with Lark¿s rescue efforts making matters worse. Sub-genre fans will enjoy this intriguing glimpse at the lawless late nineteenth century ¿Whiskey Towns¿ while Lark and Laredo fall in love over a series of capers.---- Harriet Klausner
