Christmas in Freewill
Christmas Eve, the Diamond Saloon is empty of its people, and Pearl la Monte has a hankering to retire early. A pounding at the door rids her of such a fool notion. Her irritation rises when she sees the prissy, polite-like Garrett standing outside.
Ethan Garrett has a powerful need to gain succor. When the saloon's voluptuous redheaded singer scowls at him from the threshold of the Diamond, he doesn't stop to think on how his ire at her has disappeared. Or how he just wants to spend some time in her company.
When a blizzard storms in, trapping them, will they spend their time arguing or discover their irritation disguises something more?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Cassandra's "Fool's Gold" is a nice, sexy historical romance, but I do wish it had more back story behind the plot. Cassandra's characters had great chemistry and heated up the pages. Don't get me wrong, it was a good read, it's just me that wanted more. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
Ethan and Pearl seem to have a love/hate relationship. They can't stop thinking about each other yet they tend to get on each other's nerves. Someone told me once that love is an emotion that is very close to hate - this is what they have. They end up in a situation where they are stuck together due to a blizzard. I found myself wanting them to get together and become a couple. This is a very short novella but a worthwhile read. I don't normally read "western" style books and I am glad I chose to read this one. This is book 2 in the Diamond Series. I have not read book 1. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
