BLURB/SEND HIM AN ANGEL/ SHAY
In the Badlands of the Dakota Territory, a war rages between good and evil, between
angels and Satan’s three sons…
Earth Angel —Elizabeth Bonner’s plans for her wedding dissolve when she discovers her fiancé cheating. To escape the pain and humiliation, she flees to the rowdy mining town of Deadwood Gulch where one person stands between her and hell—Gabriel King.
Dark Angel —Gabriel is feared by most, but he meets his match with Elizabeth. 1876, Dakota Territory is no place for a lady whose innocence is tempting as sin. Toss in a couple of trouble-making cherubs, and the Old West will never be the same.
Elizabeth and Gabriel —more than one war is brewing in the Black Hills…
EXCERPT/SEND HIM AN ANGEL/SHAY
Elizabeth swatted his hand. “Mr. King, I have no desire to have this indecent conversation.”
“Well, you better listen, lady,” he ordered in a no nonsense manner, “unless you wish to live a very short life.”
“Are you threatening me?” She reared back, unable to believe he had the nerve to try and terrorize her in front of witnesses, not that anyone of the three in the room seemed to be paying much attention to her.
“I’m not threatening you,” he replied. “I’m warning you. Deadwood is dangerous even for those who know to watch their backs. An innocent like you won’t last a day. The gulch is ten miles long, very winding and jammed with row after row of saloons. Gambling and bordellos is the common instead of the uncommon. The men are wild, rough, dangerous, and hungry for a woman.”
“Yes, I can see that.”
His lips quirked. “Honey, I’m one of the good guys.”
She gave an undignified snort. “Good at what?”
Amusement crinkled the corners of his eyes. “Take me up on that offer of lunch, and I’ll show you. I’ll prove how good I am at a number of things.”
Before she had a chance to voice her distaste at his blatant insinuation, Nicholas hurried to her side. “You know the wedding is still on, darling. You can’t possibly doubt it.”
Elizabeth gaped. At the moment, she had no idea what her fiancé was talking about.
Gabe snorted. “Good old Nicholas, a tad late with his response and support for his bride-to-be, but hell, better late than never.” He quirked a brow at her as if to ram his point home.
Elizabeth flashed Gabe a disgruntled look. “Shut up.”
“I was only trying to―”
“I know what you were trying to do, Nicholas. Don’t be defensive. You aren’t the one I told to shut up.”
Gabe clutched his heart as though she’d crushed him. “Oh, your words were directed to me?” he asked, all innocent. “I think perhaps you might need to talk less, my dear, Elizabeth, and observe more.”
