I was a little resistant to reading this because the heroine is a prostitute, not because I look down on them, mind you. I just don't like the idea of a heroine having to sell her body for money. . But I like to challenge myself as a reader and read books that get me out of my comfort zone. It was a very good book. It was heartbreaking at times as you realize that a girl who was continually sexually abused by a so-called guardian would have little self worth and wouldn't hesitate to sell her bod ...more

Paisley lost me on page...2.

I do not believe that the leading lady is on a desperate run for her life and has been living a hand to mouth lifestyle if she gives her life savings to a John she just met and serviced when he says he wants to buy his mother a gift but is broke.

Maybe he shouldn't be wasting his money on whores then, huh?

IF this had been done to show how stupid this chick is, that would be one thing...But I'm suppose to feel more empathy for this hooker with a heart of gold?

No, she's

Ms Paisley didn’t write many books but the ones she wrote are all on my keeper shelf! A MUST read author.

The description of the book I am listing below is from the back jacket of the book. I'm adding it because I believe the one on the Goodreads page does not depict this story.

A charmingly naive "soiled dove" with a heart of gold and a talent for catastrophe, beautiful Russia Valentine needs a fairy tale hero who will rescue her from a villain's dangerous

Somehow I missed this book the first time it came out. I'm glad I discovered it when she rereleased it. Granted it's a Western setting, but don't consign it to one bookshelf. If you enjoy classic historical romance you'll find this story satisfying because it strikes all the right chords. Strong, intriguing characters, sparks flying, conflict galore and enough heat to keep you warm on a winter's night.

Even though the 'vernacular as it were' was really beginning to get on my nerves, the smiles and out loud chuckles/laughs these characters produced one my breaks and lunch hours had my co-workers demanding to know what I was reading. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

One of the most delightful Western romances I've ever read about a fallen angel heroine and a assassin drifter. Hilarious also!

I struggled they this book. Russia's dialogue was very annoying and if Santiago said "Santa Maria" one more time I was going to throw my kindle!

The heroine Russia is the reason this book is so good. She is a charmingly naive "soiled dove" with a heart of gold.
