Overview

Territory bachelor, Jedwin Sparrow, was merely hoping to sew some wild oats. And from what he'd heard, a logical place to start might be the cottage of Mrs. Cora Briggs, notorious divorcee.
Cora's first instinct was to slap his face. Then a better plan occurred to her. Why not call the tune and string him along. What better way to exact revenge on those gossipy hens than to ensnare one of their own in that wicked web of lies.
An unexpected love story, two people who discover the truth about themselves within the heart of each other.
Pamela Morsi brings to life a small-town America of a bygone era with endearing, realistic characters and a special brand of humor that touches the heart. "Wild Oats is another perfect little gem--a wonderfully warm read that brings readers a sense of delight and deep satisfaction." RT Magazine

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Morsi's ( Garters ) down-home touch lends charm to her fairly ordinary story of small-town love. By giving her central characters a dash of sweet innocence, she even compensates for her less successful attempts to endow supporting characters with caustic wit. In the eight years since Cora Briggs divorced Luther, only son of the town matriarch, Maimie Briggs, Cora has largely been shunned by the folks of Dead Dog, Oklahoma Territory. So Cora is astonished when Jedwin Sparrow, the town's undertaker, comes calling--until he states his purpose: he hopes to obtain her favors in return for a ``modest stipend.'' Cora indignantly advises Jedwin that women want romance, not propositions, but she cannot bring herself to dismiss the attractive young man completely. More enthusiastic than shrewd, Jedwin launches a seduction that ultimately heightens local interest in Cora while drawing the two of them into a relationship much deeper than the one he originally envisioned. Cora resolves to protect Jedwin from becoming a social outcast like herself. But he rejects protection, and a skeleton is about to emerge from Maimie Briggs's family closet. (Sept.)

Meet the Author

RWA Hall of Fame member, national bestseller and two-time RITA winner, Pamela Morsi was duly warned. Lots of people mistakenly think they are writers, her mother told her. She'd be smart to give it up before she embarrassed herself. Fortunately, she rarely took her mother's advice. With 30 published titles and millions of copies in print, she loves to hear from readers on:
