WILD SWEET LOVE
Jenkins brings together characters from previous books -- female outlaw Teresa July and gambler turned banker Madison Nance -- in an emotionally moving, humorous romance with her hallmark sassy repartee, satisfying love story and that unique Jenkins spark.
A ladies' man and a former gambler, Madison knows his way around women, but Teresa is a surprise. She doesn't kowtow to him or bat her eyes; she sasses him good and then challenges him at every turn, including a game of horseshoes. Madison finds her wild streak intoxicating, and he'd let her steal his heart if she'd surrender hers. But life throws them a curve when Teresa's outlaw past comes back with a vengeance.
