Some of us live for tomorrow...some long for the old days.
A fantasy western town is the last place city girl Callie Sumner expects to find love. Her escape to the remote town is a desperate effort to leave her unhappy past behind and start anew. But the hardships of the Old West throw her for a loop until a handsome gambler shows her the West through his eyes.
Benton "Rand" Randall leaves the corporate rat race to find anonymity in Way Out West. What he finds is a breath of fresh air in a sassy saloon girl who warms his frozen heart. But his past catches up when a vengeance-seeking former employee threatens everything he values, including the town and Callie.
Will he lose Callie if he exposes his identity to save the town and his corporate empire? Can she love a man she knows only as a gambler?

About the Author
Blanche Marriott began writing romance novels in 1991 while balancing her career as a wood products manufacturing manager. She often joined the troops in the factory, working on sanders, drills, and saws. It gave her time to "talk" to the characters in her head and figure out what they would do next. In 2001 she switched careers and now works for a CPA firm as an accounting assistant, specializing in payroll. She has completed 14 novels while staying active in 2 writing groups, serving on the Boards of Directors several times, and a number of conference committees. But the best part was the life-long friendships she's formed with so many writers, published and unpublished. Her first published novel, KALEIDOSCOPE, won 2nd place in the 2003 WisRWA Write Touch Readers' Award for published authors. Her second book, WAY OUT WEST, won the prestigious New Jersey Romance Writers' 2003 Golden Leaf Award for Short Contemporary. WAY OUT WEST was also a finalist in the 2004 Virginia Romance Writers' HOLT Medallion Awards. Her current novels are APRIL'S FOOL and HIS BROTHER'S BABY. She also has a non-fiction humor book, BORN TO BITCH, chronicling life's little annoyances.
