“Starr writes a fun, vivid western romance with entertaining characters in the tradition of Linda Lael Miller.” – Publishers Weekly



Saloon singer Lady Gone Bad is the most drop-dead gorgeous outlaw the West has ever seen. But when U.S. marshal Rafe Morgan comes to arrest the comely criminal, he’s immune to her charms. Sensing danger, Lady outwits her would-be captor and escapes in disguise.


Soon Rafe finds himself in a sticky situation, as an anti-law and order mob gets him in its grasp. Lady intervenes, and now the odd couple is on the run together.  As they join forces, will the orderly lawman fall for the beguiling songstress?


Another steamy Western romance awaits in Starr’s Angel Gone Bad, available now for preorder.

Woohoo! Hope the contents lives up to the steamy cover. Thank you B&N for making my Friday special and big thanks to those that take the time and make the effort to contribute to this blog. The polite manners and fun comments always delight!

Thanks for the Friday Freebie! Spec glad to see you back this week...missed you terribly last week! Thanks to everybody for your finds. My sister surprised me with the ORIGINAL nook back in 2010 for my 40th birthday. Someday we'll upgrade but we have thoroughly enjoyed all the freebies along the way! 

by butterflly13 on ‎02-22-2013 07:54 AM

wow spec got some good ones from you! as soon as I finish Gone Girl i am going to jump right in :smileyhappy:

For those of you who downloaded last week's freebie, Sacred Treason, and are interested in reading and discussing it as a group, go here  http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/Fiction-General-Discussion/March-Nook-Feature/m-p/1437865#U14...  and just leave a comment saying you are interested.  I feel like those of us who "meet" here each Friday already have a certain kinship anyway and this would be a fun way to interact.


The way this works is you read the book at your own pace, go to the thread and read the comments that others post and share your own thoughts as well.  Debbie at the General Fiction Forum is a wonderful moderator and she will guide you along the way. 


I noticed on last week's blog that some of you have already started reading this book anyway, so I thought it might be a good choice, but of course, feel free to recommend another book.  I hope you will check this out and join in!
