"A delightful romp"
In 1886 Last Hope, Colorado, Honesty McGuire needs to
know who she really is. Three months ago, the man she
thought of as her father, Deuce McGuire, a renowned con
artist, died. Before his death, he informed her that he
was not her biological father though he loved her like she
was his daughter. Because several thugs are after Deuce
and by default Honesty, she dishonestly puts up a front
that he still lives to keep herself safe.
Undercover Pinkerton Agent Jessie Justiss, using the
alias of Jones, seeks Deuce for abducting and killing the
two daughters of San Francisco magnate Anton Jervais
sixteen years ago. When Jessie meets Honesty, both lose
the edge that made them so successful as a detective and
con artist respectively. Instead, love enters the
relationship, but what will happen when they learn the
truth about one another?
AN UNLIKELY LADY is an amusing western romantic romp
starring two inviting lead characters that dance quite a
tango between them to the delight of the audience. The
story line is humorous, but contains a wonderful
investigative subplot as well as a warm romance between two
wary 'warriors'. Rachelle Morgan shows her abilities to
tell a gregarious story starring strong protagonists who
hopefully soon will return during the story of Honesty's
missing twin sister.
