The Beaten Territory

The Beaten Territory
Samuelson-Brown, Randi

THE BEATEN TERRITORY finds Annie Ryan running a second-rate brothel in 1890s Denver with an eye toward expansion. By chance she encounters Lydia Chambers a society woman suffering from a laudanum habit and a bad marriage, who owns a prized property on the infamous Market Street. Annie's fortunes at the brothel turn on her niece Pearl, a pretty young girl swept up in Denver's underworld of jealousy, booze, and vice--until murder stalks the good-time girls and puts everyone's future in doubt. A rollicking tale of blurred lines, flowing booze, played-out miners and upstairs girls, THE BEATEN TERRITORY delivers a compelling look at the intrigues of the Wild West, where women were enterprising and justice could be had...for a price.

Kill Crazy

Kill Crazy
Johnstone, William W.

"In a town like Chugwater, Wyoming, you know who your friends are, who your enemies are, and who your kill-crazy maniacs are. For Duff MacCallister, the last category belongs to Johnny Taylor and his gang. Duff has wrestled with this polecat before, and knows that his bite is worse than his smell. But when Taylor's gang tries to rob a bank--and Duff manages to shoot one and arrest Taylor's brother--the outraged outlaw raises a stink straight out of hell. First, he begins to randomly slaughter innocent townsfolk one by one. Then, he leaves a note on the bodies warning: "We will kill more of your citizens if you do not let my brother go." Now, he's kidnapped a woman as bait--lighting a fuse under Duff MacCallister that's bound to ignite the biggest, bloodiest showdown in Chugwater history" --from publisher's web site.

The Lone Warrior

The Lone Warrior
Austin, Lori, 1961-

"Rose Varner needs a man. But not just any man. The one known as "White Ghost with Hair of Fire." He may be the only way to rescue her daughter, Lily, from the Cheyenne. Legend has it he was once the Cheyenne's captive, but his courage impressed them so much that they accepted him as one of their own. Yet the man Rose finds seems far from legendary. Luke Phelan's tortured past has driven him to live as a recluse in the Smoky Hills of western Kansas. Having vowed to keep his distance from the Cheyenne, Luke refuses to accompany Rose on her rescue mission. But her bravery in the face of dangerous odds changes his mind. Now as they ride toward their destination, they'll battle outlaws, bounty hunters, and their own rising desires before finding Lily. But the cost to Rose will be high, and her budding love for Luke will be put to the test."-- Page [4] of cover.
