Image of 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.

One of the west's famous outlaws, Teresa, has been given a pardon and released from jail into the custody of wealthy Philadelphia society matron Molly Nance. She must stay out of trouble for one year before returning home to Texas. She's sure she can succeed, if only she can stay out of the way of Molly's handsome son, Madison.

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.
