Wild Wild Widow

Rebecca Chatham is no stranger to scandal. She and her husband delighted in shocking San Francisco society with their sexual exploits, not hard to do in 1888. But now her husband is dead. He left her penniless, forced to live under her wealthy father’s thumb. While searching for a protector, she once again becomes the focus of society gossip, and her father exiles her to her brother’s ranch in Central California.

Rebecca is miserable, until she meets the very handsome, very virile ranch foreman Judah Merrill. A real cowboy. Though she’s aware of their differences in status, she pursues him with a single-mindedness, until he catches her in the creek (and in the barn and on horseback). But what happens when she falls in love with him? Will he accept her wild wild heart? 

Wow. Wow. Wow. This is now my "go to" book the next time I'm asked for a recommendation for a western historical and/or erotic historical. For a 99 cent novella this one packs a serious punch. I was completely taken away to the California ranch along with Rebecca, and have to say I fell in love with Judah myself. In my eyes he is the perfect cowboy. Gentle and passionate, yet incredibly strong, and his tender way with the horses he trained just made me melt. Poor Rebecca didn't stand a chance once he set out to tame her!
Seriously, download this and read it. You won't regret it, and it might just tempt you to read more books in one of my favorite genres.
