Now this was something different that I haven’t read quite like it before. Very entertaining and had me laughing throughout the story. I love the interactions between Liana and Dale. They are sweet and playful. The cover is gorgeous, the characters entertaining. Although I have only read this book in the series, I think the other books would be a lot of fun!
My rating: 3.5 stars
“Here are the celebratory wedding cakes.”Pearl walked in from the kitchen with a tray holding several tiny, plated cakes. “Some are chocolate and the others lemon.” She extended the tray between Archie and Marianne then moved around the table.
“Those look delicious, Pearl, but I do not think I could eat another bite.” Liana pressed a hand to her middle.
Unable to resist, Dale leaned close and dropped his voice so only she could hear. “Possibly, you need to loosen your corset.”
Loner Dale Claybourne spent the last five years as a dedicated and decorated Pinkerton agent. Confident in his abilities, he’s not afraid to face down thieves, swindlers and even murderers. But he quells at the mandate of having to train a female agent and, even worse, to marry her before receiving his next assignment.
Gregarious Liana LaFontaine served as a seamstress for the Denver Pinkerton Agency. Now she yearns for a taste of the adventurous life of being an agent. Her ability to speak several languages and her ease with getting people to talk are her strongest assets.
Impulsive by nature, Liana jumps into situations she doesn’t have the experience to handle. Dale fights his growing admiration for this French beauty while keeping close to guard her safety. At odds over almost everything, the pair has to solve the mystery of who is stealing from a Virginia City saloon—a task made even harder because of the wild attraction that shouldn’t be present in a marriage of convenience.
