An erotic historical romance...

After working in the gold fields of California for two years, Caleb Hightower has come home to marry his childhood sweetheart, Jessica Willoughby. But when he returns, Caleb learns his refined bride-to-be is now a whore. Enraged by her betrayal, he can't reconcile this shameless woman with the sweet innocent he once deeply loved--but Caleb knows what to do with a harlot. He's determined to get everything from her that she's sold to other men. And he's prepared to pay for the pleasure of his revenge.
Left penniless after her father's death, Jess made a deal with a devil. Now she must face her first love, whose scorn is no match for her regret. To make amends, she'll let Caleb quench his rage with her body. Their bargain strips them down to searing passion and naked vulnerability, and Jess can still glimpse her loving Caleb buried deep inside this rough cowboy. In the end, an unbearable truth emerges that could push them toward forgiveness...or could destroy their fragile bond forever.

My Thoughts:
I have been a Victoria Dahl fan since she released her first book, I have every single book of hers and I love them all. I was so excited when I found out she was writing a historical erotic romance book. No one does erotic better than this author. Poor Jessica was put in a bad situation and with no other way out. Caleb and Jessica were supposed to be married, but he left for California and a whole slew of misunderstandings happened. When Caleb comes back for Jessica, he finds that everything has changed with Jessica. It was a love story with a wicked character plot twist. If you're a fan of Ms Dahl's, you'll want to read this short, romantic book.
