Historical Romance [Rainwater, Oklahoma – 1929]
Place Called Rainwater
old Jill Jones is the youngest of the Jones clan of Fertile, Missouri.
Growing up with all brothers has toughed her skin so that she knows
how to stand her ground and fight for what she believes is right.
She readily agrees to answer the distress call of her ailing Aunt
Justine by agreeing to go to Rainwater, Oklahoma to help run her
thriving Byers Hotel. In a town famous for its oil, the men out
number the women. Jill finds that she must be made out of steel
in order for her to survive against the local rowdies. During one
heated altercation, she is furious when Thad Taylor steps in and
tries to defend her honor. In no uncertain terms, she set him back
on his heels by letting him know that she doesn’t need or
want his interference in her life. When circumstances change, will
she find herself running to the protection of Thad’s arms?
Taylor hardly recognizes his best friend’s little sister as
the beautiful independent woman before his eyes. Her fiery temper
is evident as she holds her own with some of the local roughnecks.
His protective nature summons him to her side to help rescue her
from the mob. What he didn’t count on was the little hellcat
turning on him by sinking her sharp little claws into his own hide.
Would it be possible to tame the tigress?
