"a fun romp through time"
Samantha Hendricks just lost her father unexpectedly to a
heart attack. While she felt they had never been close, he
left her a very strange inheritance. What in the world is
she going to do with a wanted poster, a map, and a bottle
Jesse Kincaid was an outlaw about a hundred and thirty
years in the past. He had no idea what to do with the
golden haired beauty asleep by the stream. But as sparks
ignite between the two, how could they possibly be together?
This was a very romantic novella, sweet and endearing. I
enjoyed the way the author brought the two together and
wondered how she was going to end her story. I wasn't
disappointed. Ms. Scott described the past and the present
so well, I had to wonder if she had done a bit of time
travel herself. She seemed to know things about the past,
like she had been there. Jesse was the consummate hero.
I've always dreamed of a man like him. Samantha seemed to
be just as messed up as the rest of the women in the twenty
first century. I completely identified with her. This
book was a fun romp through time. I really enjoyed reading

In one deft, effortless move, he lifted her and straddled her over his
lap. She suddenly faced him, all without breaking the steaming kiss.
What a remarkable difference her new position made. All that gleaming
muscle there for the taking and, oh, she took. Her hands roved over
his pecs, up his neck, down the ripples of waist to his jeans. They
paused at the top button and continued past, over his hips, covering
his thighs, ever aware of what she wasn't touching. Yet.
She pressed her hips closer, shocked at her body's readiness to take
him in. If she was eager and hot, he was cool. The cowboy cupped her
face, ran his fingers into her hair. He kissed her in an intense,
drawn-out fashion, slowing her, tempering her fever.
Time in a bottle...
What else could her father leave her? The treasure map, the bottle of
whiskey, and the wanted poster shouldn't have surprised Samantha
Hendricks. His lifelong obsession with gentleman outlaw Jesse Kincaid
was likely all he'd had left. One taste of the whiskey, however,
tumbles her through time, into arms so wonderfully real and strong she
can only surmise she's gone crazy. Torn between craving a delusion and
believing in the impossible, hurtling between the past and present,
Samantha returns to Jesse over and over again. No woman can want this
man more, and if she's clever enough, she might be able to use her
inheritance for what she finally realizes her father intended—true love.
