Description

With a delightful wit and a delicious talent for the unexpected, Katie Rose tells a sensuous tale of the wicked, wild West and the proper Bostonian there to solve a murder—only to become embroiled in romance.
 
This isn’t the fate Emily Potter imagined for her long-lost father: gunned down in cold blood in the parlor of his bordello in bawdy, booming Denver. Now the lovely armchair sleuth from the civilized East is determined to unmask the killer, employing the logic of her hero, Sherlock Holmes. Yet Holmes never faced distractions like 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 perhaps even something about her father’s murder. All she knows is it’s hard to keep her mind on deduction when Thomas seems intent on seduction. Meanwhile the bordello’s matchmaking ghost insists on providing lessons in feminine wiles. But as logic gives way to passion, Emily forgets to protect both her vulnerable heart—and her life.
 
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: All Is Fair . . ., Bad to the Bone, and Rescuing Diana.

Publishers Weekly Review

Feb 01, 1999 – The intrepid Emily Potter travels to the 1893 frontier town of Denver, Colo., after her long-lost father and his mistress are murdered in a bordello and his gold fortune disappears. A Sherlock Holmes devotee, Emily decides to emulate the great detective by using logic to pursue the facts surrounding the case and solve the mystery. A passenger on Emily's stagecoach, Thomas Hall, accompanies her to Denver for reasons of his own and offers to assist her in the possibily dangerous investigation. A love affair blossoms. Searching for witnesses to the crime, Emily and Thomas's lives are endangered, and their love is challenged when Thomas decides to tell Emily his true identity and his connection to the missing gold. Only a superfluous ghost (who plays a surprisingly large part in the story) and one-dimensional villains mar this delightful love story that successfully blends mystery, humor and a steamy romance into a western-style adventure.
