The Taming of Jessi Rose by Beverly Jenkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Taming of Jessi Rose - Griffin Blake is the hero or antihero. He is a train robber and the brother of a lawman and he has been freed by Hanging Judge Parker and made a deputy in order to help a town being taken over by a thief. So the judge sends a thief to catch a thief. The Twins show up here, as well as The Preacher, and Dixon Wildhorse. Jessi Rose is the most hated woman in town and the most beautiful, she is hated because she is the last homeowner left who has not sold out to the railroad so she is being harassed and threatened.
There is a sexiness to the heroes in her stories and whenever I need a pick me up, I pick up a book by Beverly Jenkins. There is always a footnote to her books where she tells you of the real historical facts that she uses to write her books.
