His Crown Jewel - The Jeweled Ladies #5
Publisher: Maggie Chase
As the notorious madam Mistress, Emily Weatherspoon has spent years gathering secrets, wielding power and satisfying other people's urges. Although she's been richly rewarded, she's never forgotten her first love—Cyrus Franklin, the former slave who suddenly appeared in Brimstone.
Cyrus never thought he'd see Emily again—and certainly not as a madam. But when their paths cross again, he's not going to let the only woman he's ever loved get away from him. But someone's out to destroy Cyrus and, as Mistress, Emily has the power to keep him safe. When she tries to send Cyrus away, will he go or will he fight for her?
The Jeweled Ladies series by Maggie Chase will delight fans of historical westerns by Victoria Dahl, Molly O'Keefe and Vanessa Vale.
