"Hilarious western romp"
In 1888 London, Lady Elizabeth Summersby learns that it
takes only one indiscretion to become pregnant. Her one
night stand lover Dirk Ballinger had returned to his ranch
in America when Elizabeth's father sends him a letter
informing him that he impregnated his daughter and expects
the honorable action of marriage. Though it was not Dirk
who went to London, he knows he must marry because his
nefarious outlaw relative impersonated him in England.
When a gang holds up the coach containing Elizabeth and
her maid Molly Riordan, they take the lady as a hostage.
Dirk finds an injured Molly and thinks she is his
betrothed. He rejects her explanations and marries her.
They begin to fall in love, but how can she persuade him to
help her find her Irish émigré father and the missing
Elizabeth while he must convince her he was not the rascal
NO PLACE FOR A LADY is an amusing, exhilarating western
romance that engages the audience from start to finish due
to the strong cast. Readers will enjoy the battle of wits
between the genders as love blossoms amidst the lead couple
and a secondary duet. Deb Stover provides her usual
delicious tale that Americana romance readers will conclude
is a delightful treasure.
