But someone does marry her. The handsome, ex-outlaw Frank Early.
Their life together starts out a happy one, despite the hardships that come with starting a farm.
But now that farm is failing, and Frank is growing restless and unhappy. So unhappy that he won’t even make love to Cora anymore.
Cora is determined to save both the farm and her marriage, but when Frank’s former partner, the darkly seductive Levi Burton, appears out of nowhere, he proves not only a temptation to Frank to return to his outlawing ways, but also to the sexually frustrated Cora.
This is the second in Diana Castle's Spicy Tales of the Wild West trilogy. In the beginning I didn't think I was going to love this one as much as I did the first, Under His Hands, but 1/3 of the way in I was swiping the pages on my Kindle like crazy.
I hated the way Frank treated his wife, and didn't blame Cora at all for turning to Levi. Then the revelation of what Levi was running from and Cora's dilemma, the storm, Frank's discovery of his wife and best friend together. So much emotional turmoil in this novella! I couldn't wait to see how everything would be resolved.
