Description: With delightful wit and a delicious talent for the unexpected, Katie Rose brings us a sensuous tale of the wicked, wild West and the very proper Bostonian who travels there to solve a murder--only to become embroiled in A Case for Romance.
Of all the things Emily Potter hoped would happen when her long-lost father reappeared, this wasn't one of them: She's just inherited the bordello he owned in bawdy, booming Denver--and worse, he was gunned down in cold blood in the parlor. But instead of getting faint, the lovely armchair sleuth from the civilized East is determined to unmask her father's killer, employing the infallible logic of her hero, Sherlock Holmes. Yet Holmes never had such a complicated case...or the sexy, distracting shadow of the Reverend Thomas Hall, who seems unusually interested in the abandoned house of sin--and Emily's every move.
Emily suspects the "preacher" knows more about gunslingers than the Good Book...and begins to wonder whether he was involved in her father's murder. All she knows is it's hard to keep her mind on deduction when Thomas seems intent on seduction...and the matchmaking ghost of the bordello's shadiest lady insists on providing elementary lessons in feminine wiles. But as logic gives way to passion, Emily forgets to protect both her vulnerable heart, and her life.
