Read full description of the books Devil in Spurs:This was a fast paced western romance which I at times had a hard time putting down.
Our heroine Jonty has grown up pretending to be a boy, for her own protection, since she was raised in a brothel. A pretence she has been sick and tired of for a long time and which she hopes will end soon.
Unfortunately that doesn't come to pass. Her grandmother dies making Cord McBain Jonty's guardian thus forcing her to continue with her disguise.
Cord McBain is a very reluctant guardian because he doesn't like the "sissified boy". He agrees to it only because the granny saved his life at one point. His goal is to make a MAN out of the boy.
Hero was unreasonably cruel in his conduct toward Jonty while he thought her a "sissified boy". Sometimes I thought his actions and reactions down right stupid. But once he found out that Jonty was actually a girl, his behaviour changed for the better. The only time he reverted to his old treatment (not as harsh) of Jonty was when jealousy was riding him hard.
Despite both the hero and heroine having their share of TSTL moments I enjoyed the book. I think I ended up liking it so much because the hero became so totally nuts about the heroine. I mean, he was cannot sleep, cannot eat, constantly thinking, pining and longing for her kind of hero.
P.S. There was an attempt of rape by another man. No rape by the hero. Hero kisses another woman in front of the heroine in order to make her jealous, otherwise no cheating.
