***Received from Tasty Book Tours for an honest review***

Between Emily's penchant for dressing like a tomboy and Seth's "disguise" as someone else, I was either laughing, smiling, wondering, or cheering.

Though I didn't really like Seth not correcting Emily mistaking him for Paris' friend Mr. Pinkerton, I did like how he struggled with maintaining his cover and telling her the truth. His genuine curiosity about her at their initial meeting grew beautifully into lust and love as he got to know her

Recommends it for: Romance readers who like humor too
This book was fun! It takes place in Phoenix (!) and the Napa Valley area in 1878. I liked the main characters, and the secondary characters added a lot to the story--not taking anything away from the main characters at all. Emily McBride, preacher's daughter, and having recently lost both her parents, is being blackmailed. Her best friend, who is pregnant & can't travel, sends Seth Wright, lawman, to investigate what's going on, undercover. Seth befriends Emily, under the guise of being gay ...more

I love the story between Emily and Seth it was fantastic. Seth leaves Arizona under orders from two of the Garrett siblings, one sending him to help her and fall in love with her while the other sends him to bring her back to be his wife. He gets there and Emily thinks he is somebody else. Emily already has two people wanting to marry her and one of them won't back off. She also has a blackmailer.

This book was full of fun and kept me entertained. I can't wait to read the rest of these books to s

Seth Wright & Emily McBride
Seth is sent from AZ territory to Heaven, CA to get Emily to bring her back to marry a family friend. He hasn't asked her but Seth has a letter to give her. She won't travel with just anyone so Seth is posing as a poet (which is too funny) so she talks him into teaching her to kiss. They both wear glasses.
