4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 14 Sep 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Taming of Jessi Rose (Avon Romance) (Mass Market Paperback)
In 1888 Texas, a cattle stampede occurs on the Clayton Blanco County ranch. During the chaos abetted by a nasty storm, Clem Davis, employed by Reed Darcy, kills Dexter Clayton. Before dying, he makes his daughter Jessi Rose vow to never give in to Darcy. Sheriff Hatcher insists that Dexter died due to an accidental shooting.
In the 1889 Kansas State Penitentiary, U.S. Deputy Marshal Dixon Wildhorse visits his friend inmate Griffin Sloan Blake. Dix offers Griff a job that would release him from his seven year sentence. Griff accepts the task of keeping Jessi Rose and her nephew Joth safe from the Darcy gang. Griff immediately finds himself attracted to the feisty Jessi and the intrepid ten-year old Joth. As Darcy mounts the pressure on the Claytons, she falls in love with the handsome convict helping her. He reciprocates. However, she has good reason to not trust any outlaw with her feelings. Then there remains the Darcy threat because he covets her ranch to complete a railroad deal.
With excellent novels like TOPAZ and INDIGO, Beverly Jenkins has attained much acclaim from fans and critics. Her latest tale, THE TAMING OF JESSI ROSE, will gain the talented author many new readers. The tension-filled Americana romance brings 1880's Texas alive. Griff is a compassionate hunk while Jessi is a brave heroine. The other members of the support cast bring depth to the story and that allows the reader to feel 1880's Texas at a level rarely felt in a romance novel.
