Roxanne Louise Doyle (Roxy) is Lady Gunsmith, the daughter of Gavin Doyle. When she was a child, traveling west on a wagon train, her mother was killed, leaving her father alone to raise and care for his little girl. Unsure of himself in this endeavor he proceeded the only way he knew how, with a gun. He traveled, hiring out as a bounty hunter, and sending the money to a family in Missouri who were raising his daughter. Eventually, the money stopped coming, and the assumption was that Gavin Doyle was dead...
Roxy decided to travel the West looking for news of her father. She wanted to know for sure whether he was dead or alive. Wearing britches, boots and a man's work shirt, she set off, taking only a dress and a gun. She'd managed to steal and hide her foster father's big Navy Colt, keeping it with her to defend herself from his advances, should the need arise. In the afternoons, she would sneak away and practice with the gun. She soon learned she had inherited one thing from her father--the uncanny ability to shoot. Eventually her target shooting, no matter how much smaller the targets kept getting, reached the point where she never . . . ever . . . missed.
Lady Gunsmith is an adult western series that will recall the series that were predominant in the 80's and what made them popular--strong characters, no political correctness, all adventure and bawdiness. This time, the series stars a hot, sexy woman who has a ferocious sexual appetite and is unmatched with a gun. She is called "Lady Gunsmith" because she is the female version of her mentor, Clint Adams, the Gunsmith.
