THE COURTING OF WIDOW SHAW
Genre: Historical Romance
Steven Harding rescues Gloria Mae Shaw from a burning house where her murdered husband's body is lying next
Steven has loved Glory, but he's certain she'd never want to have anything to do with him because of his association with the whorehouse. Glory does become friendly with several of the prostitutes, which doesn't change her mind about their profession, but does soften her judgmental attitude.
A highly romantic tale, The Courting of Widow Shaw delivers a satisfying ending that proves love can overcome any past. Too bad there couldn't have been more exploration of why the ladies of Rainbow House decided to remain at the colorful brothel even when Steven's mother was willing to make it possible for each to leave. SENSUAL (Jun, 300 pp., $5.25)
