IN CELEBRATION OF AMANDA MCINTYRE'S FALLEN ANGEL RELEASE, BOOK OBSESSED CHICKS IS HAVING A CONTEST TO WIN THE FIRST BOOK IN THE SWEET MAGNOLIA SERIES. THIS AWESOME BOOK, WILD & UNRULY..... COMMENT TO BE ENTERED
In Wild & Unruly by Amanda McIntyre, we find Lillian White, an attractive but lonely woman, who lives her mundane life as a librarian, choosing to use her tales of the Old West as her getaway, but when her fantasy becomes reality things look up for Lillian. At work in the library, Lillian finds a mysterious antique box with a necklace inside and takes the items home with her. That evening she falls asleep in her apartment in present day Virginia City and wakes up in the mid 1800's mining town of Deadwater Gulch as Madam of the Magnolia, the town's house of ill repute. To her surprise, Lillian is thrust into the running of the town's bordello, a profession she had only read about in her books. On the bright side, she meets the cowboy of her dreams, Sheriff Jake Sloan.
Deadwater Gulch's Sheriff, the tall dark and handsome Jake Sloan, has it bad for Miss Lillian, but the lawman also has his political aspirations. Dare he throw caution to the wind and fulfill his need for the attractive madam Lillian? If they do grasp at their feelings for one another, what impact will it have on their futures? These and more questions go through both of their minds as they become more involved.
Amanda McIntyre had me from Chapter 1 with Lillian being a character many a female reader could relate to. Then she adds Sheriff Sloan who is a cool drink of water with his come hither attitude and his dark brooding looks. The story of love across time touched me deeply and I began to silently... or not so silently cheer the couple on. I want to fall asleep and wake up in the Wild West as long as I can have my own Jake Sloan to pass the time with. I loved this tale and I think you will too. This is the first in Amanda McIntyre's Tales of Sweet Magnolia series and I eagerly await the next book!
