For adventurous Margaret Flemming, arrived from Boston to be with her father, the Old West town of her childhood is a far cry from the drawing rooms and balls of the high society life she’s used to. Her fancy gowns and proper manners have no place in the dusty, cruel land inhabited by Indians and rough cowboys.And her fiercely independent streak constantly gets her in trouble. When tragedy strikes, there’s only one person she can turn to–her childhood friend, Garret Shaw–but he’s disgusted with her Society ways.

With his ranch under attack from the land-grabbing Jennings, the last thing Garret needs is to be saddled with a high-falutin’ lady. Even if she is his friend’s daughter and her kind ways tug at his hardened heart. Duty to her father forces them to wed, but he knows sure as anything, when the chance comes along, she’ll go back to Boston. No matter how much he wants her, loving her is not a risk he can take.

Equine Profiles of the Lazy S Ranch

Tera Shanley here, author of Historic Western Romance, An Unwilling Husband, and in honor of the book’s brand spankin’ new release, I’m going to do a different sort of character profile.

Sometimes in a book, secondary characters stick out and stay with you long after you’ve flipped that last page. The Lazy S Ranch, where Garret Shaw lives and works, is more than just a home to his eclectic group of hired hands. It also shelters a number of animals, each important to the cattle ranch’s success and livelihood. But perhaps more important than all of the other hay munching, pail kicking, human pecking animals are the horses used for transportation, and on occasion, for a patient ear to talk into.

First up is Rooney. He’s a tall, young, strong stallion with a coat that shines red in sunlight. He’s restless and wants to run. Ornery half the time and fidgeting the rest, he’s no easy beginner’s ride. And most importantly for a cowboy in the Wild West, he’s fast as the wind and surefooted to boot.

No less a horse would do for the hero of An Unwilling Husband, Garret Shaw.

Lenny's Horse

Next up is Lenny’s horse. She’s a paint horse with brown and white markings and an occasional feather or braid in her hair. She’s never named in the book because Lenny, our heroine’s best friend, doesn’t speak a lick of English. She’ll take a saddle but runs fastest bareback, and when Lenny asks for speed, she gets it in spades. And this horse’s speed will save a life in the course of the book.

I saved the best for last because Maggie’s horse, Buck, has a special place in the story. He’s her lifeline to a past she’s desperately trying to reconnect with. He was gifted to Maggie for her seventh birthday by her daddy and went everywhere with her until she was ten, when she was forced to leave him. When she returns to Rockdale to reunite with the life she remembers there, old Buckey-Boy is waiting. He’s grown pleasantly plump and a little on the lazy side over the years she’s been away, but our Maggie will get him into tip-top shape soon enough. He’s a gentle-souled buckskin horse that does his best to give his riders the pace they need.
