"a rip-roaring western romance"

Sloan Harper has escaped from the most horrendous circumstances in a late nineteenth century prison. The only thing that kept Sloan going during his years in prison was the thought of revenge on the man who had him incarcerated unjustly. As a way of revenge, Sloan decides to kidnap his enemy's only child, Peyton Dalton. Peyton is Dalton's heir and prized possession, and Sloan hopes to get his revenge through her. In Peyton, Sloan gets much more than he bargained for.

THE WAYWARD WIND is an intense, western, erotic romance with lots of action. Some readers might take exception with Sloan's behavior in the beginning. However, it soon becomes clear that Sloan's bitter exterior and hardened outlook hide a great depth of character. Peyton is a very feisty, older heroine, who overcomes great adversity and doesn't sit on the sidelines waiting for rescue. There are, also, several wonderful secondary characters, as well as a brutal villain. It is a breath of fresh air to have an overweight, older heroine, instead of the usual barbie-doll like heroine.

All in all, THE WAYWARD WIND is a rip-roaring western romance with sizzling love scenes. Just a word of warning, there is a forced seduction, which some readers might find objectionable.

Sloan Harper spent five long, dehumanizing years in a federal penitentiary for a crime he did not commit. During that time, all he had to help him make it through the torturous days and the watchful nights was the thoughts of revenge he aimed to take on the man responsible for his predicament. That revenge would come in the form of his enemy's beloved daughter, Peyton. Kidnapping the virginal spinster, taking her far away from her doting father, and ruining her with his bastard child was all Harper could think about.

Peyton Dalton has spent her entire life wishing for her own home and a husband with whom to share it: neither of which her father ever intends she have. When the handsome outlaw waylays the stage upon which she's traveling and takes her hostage, she begins to realize she should have been more careful for what she wished.

Under a blazing Texan sun, unexpected love will find Harper and Peyton but her father, Jacob Dalton, has only hatred awaiting them at the end of the trail and a bullet with Harper's name on it.
