Beneath A Silver Moon

Sinclair Readford had reached the end of her rope, figuratively and literally. She hung out of the window of a whorehouse in nothing more than her unmentionables. To escape the disreputable establishment, the Eastern-bred lady had vowed to go to any length. However, when her fingers slipped and she plunged into the embrace of a ruggedly handsome cowboy, she wondered if she’d been saved or damned.

collectorcard-2.5inx3.5in-h-frontJefferson McCloud had never had a woman fall out of the sky to land in his arms before. It was enough to turn a man into a lovesick fool. Especially when the woman was all long blond hair and soft white skin. He should have known immediately she’d be more trouble than the devil himself. But soon, the cowboy knew he’d ride to hell and back to earn the right to call the impertinent chatterbox his own.

“I enjoyed it thoroughly! The story was delightful!”
