Lady Tallas Somerset just married Lord Arthur Somerset who
is the eight Duke of Beaufort's heir. Tallie has had all the
proper training to become a duchess but nothing prepared her
for her wedding night when Arthur tells her she has two
choices remain a virgin or take a lover. Tallie has always
enjoyed writing so she takes her time as a wife in name only
to write a scandalous novel about the secret life of the
ton. Tallie's novel becomes all the rage and she is felling
content with her life until the Duke of Beaufort informs her
she must divorce to save his family from her husband's
secrets. Tallie is disgraced and she leaves London with a
friend for New York and then heads to the west.
Mister Jeb Tuhill is the eldest son of a successful rancher
in the Texas Panhandle. Jeb has always had a head for the
ranch business and his brother Jonas is sick and tired of
hearing about how perfect Jeb is. Jeb decides it's time to
marry and build his own ranch. When he heads to find his
prospective bride Jeb is shocked to discover Jonas and
Katarina walking hand in hand down the stairs in a
disheveled state. Jeb doesn't need any explanations it is
clear what the two have been up to, so he leaves immediately
and travels to Wyoming for a new venture.
TALLIES HERO is a pleasurable novel that spans two very
different cultures of London's ton and America's Wild West.
I appreciated how author Sara Luck was able to intertwine
some folk heroes into her story. I'm not sure how
historically accurate it was but I wasn't looking for a non-
fiction story about the west. Luck's depiction of Tallie as
a strong independent young woman exploring the Wild West and
her sexuality was brilliant. The chemistry between the
young English miss and the rugged cowboy was compelling and
quite steamy. I was pleasantly surprised with TALLIE'S HERO
and look forward to exploring more of Sara Luck's works.
In a time of prosperity and risk on the open frontier,
a daring cattleman takes his chances on expanding
westwardâ€”and on a genteel lady from another world.
Swept up in adventure . . .
left for him in Texas after his fiancĂ‰e breaks his heart,
Jeb Tuhill heads to Wyomingâ€™s Big Horn Mountains to work the
huge ranching operation of wealthy English squire Moreton
Frewen. In an attempt to lure investors to the beautiful,
and oftentimes dangerous, American West, Frewen and Jeb
travel to England. The British gentry donâ€™t impress Jeb
much, but one spirited lady lassoes his attention with her
intellect and charm.
Bound together by passion . .
Tallie Somerset is a bestselling novelist who
is forced into a divorce by the improprieties of her
husband, a British lord. Fleeing the scandal, she takes a

plainsâ€”and the handsome cowboy who calls it homeâ€”Tallie
might be persuaded to leave England, and its bad memories,
