A SWEEPING WESTERN HISTORICAL ROMANCE BY NYT BESTSELLING AUTHOR NICOLE JORDAN
There's fire in Jessica Sommers' hazel eyes. She's out to get the scoundrels who shot her father and she needs a hired gun to help her protect the family silver mine. Garrett Devlin arrives in town just in time to take on the job.
Devlin claims to be just a gambling man, but he's not showing all his cards. His easy-going charm and self-assurance make him irresistible to most women, yet Jessica spurns his promises of pleasure as they follow the outlaws through the majestic Colorado Rockies. But suddenly faced with life-threatening peril, Jessica yields to the warm comfort of Garrett's embrace...surrendering to the firestorm of passion.

New York Times bestselling author Nicole Jordan spins delightful tales that simmer with passion and sensuality. In her former life, Nicole grew up as an Army brat, moving frequently and attending high school in Germany. She later earned a civil engineering degree from Georgia Tech and spent eight years as a manufacturing manager making disposable diapers and toilet tissue! Currently Nicole lives in Cincinnati with her beloved show horse, EZ. With more than thirty historical romances to her credit and seven million books in print, set in numerous eras and locales, Nicole now enjoys chronicling the sparks that fly when Regency lovers play the matrimonial mating game. Her latest novel, MY FAIR LOVER, a September 2017 release from Ballantine Books, earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly, a Best Book nod from Amazon, a Fresh Pick from Fresh Fiction, and a Top Pick from RT Book Reviews magazine. One of Nicole's novels had the dubious honor of being humorously spotlighted by Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. On a more serious note, Nicole's romances regularly appear on numerous bestseller lists, including The New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly, and have earned such honors as RITA finalist, RWAs Favorite Book of the Year, the Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for Historical Romance, and the Dorothy Parker Award of Excellence, presented by a group of over one hundred romance reviewers.
