FINDING THE MOTHER LODE
What is an enterprising young woman to do? Trick a cowboy by getting him drunk, married, and then drug him, steal his money, dress as a male, file a claim and high tail it out of Gold Rush, back to the claim. In theory, it sounding like it would all work out fine.
Stone McCormick wakes up more than hung over, finds out he is married, and his bride is missing. Then he is approached to buy his gold claim….what gold claim? This tale is set in motion, and an angry Stone is out for revenge when he finds Mellon, his wife.
The plot has a marriage of convenience, trickery, deceit by lies of omission, and plenty of passion, even if it is in the form of a fiery redhead and a determined cowboy. From “I do” to “I don’t” and back to “I do” again, the sparks fly between Stone and Mellon. This is a fun and quick read with plenty of humor, some intense moments, a bit of passion, some well-deserved spankings, and mild intimacy scene. Best of all, it has a nice happily ever after ending.
