Clover City, Colorado—1888

A mysterious letter and the drop-dead handsome town marshal, are the last things Mariah expects to find making rounds as a midwife. 

Mariah McAllister plans to be married before her next birthday. Too bad Marshal Virgil Kincaid barely knows she’s alive. Not one to give up easily, she’s determined to show him she has an abiding passion for more than her work.

Virgil Kincaid loved a woman once—after she broke his heart, he spent three years in prison. Women can’t be trusted, no matter how good they look. He’s sworn off relationships in favor of Saturday night poker games. Life is simple—the way he wants it…until a stranger turns up dead in the road. 

Forced to work side by side with Mariah, Virgil begins to wonder if she might be his second chance at love. As they trade kisses and oh so much more, he’s willing to take the gamble. But when a killer threatens their once peaceful town, all bets are off.

Excerpt 
Virgil Kincaid was a prime cut of man. Over six feet tall, he made Mariah’s five-foot seven height seem less gawky and awkward. And he was built for action, long and lean with broad shoulders—shoulders she hankered to hold onto—and with narrow hips—hips she could easily envision pressed up against her own.
 
      And then there were his eyes. Grey as the sky in winter, full of secrets, revealing nothing. Virgil had been the town Marshal for nearly three years, yet no one knew where he’d come from or how long he intended to stay. What would it take to light a fire in those eyes and put settling down in his thoughts?
 
       Her gaze drifted lower and latched onto the front of his denim trousers. A picture of what he might look like naked skittered across her mind and her cheeks grew hot at the imagining.
 
       “You done lookin?” he asked.
 
        Her gaze snapped up to meet his and the heat of humiliation replaced the lustful warmth.
 
        “Yes,” she babbled, “there doesn’t seem to be anything of interest here.” 
 
        “Really?” he challenged, with a cocky grin and a raised brow.
 
         He stepped closer and stood so near she could smell the man sent of him as she tried to ratchet her breathing down to a more normal rate.
 
        “You’re a very unusual woman, Miss McAllister.”
 
        “Is that good or bad?” she dared to ask.
 
        “I’m not sure yet.”

  Colorado, 1880    
Kicked out of England for offending the Royal Family, Britania Rule heads for Leadville, in the Colorado backcountry. Passing herself off as a highborn lady, she pursues her dream of opening a parlor of spiritual enlightenment.

 Cody James, her guide, thinks he must be half-
crazy to hire-out to a female. But his luck at the gaming tables has run dry, and she’s his meal-ticket out of town. Betrayed by the only woman he ever loved, and shot and left for dead by a man he once called friend, Cody declares himself a loner.
     Traveling side by side, they deny their desire for one another, but the Tarot cards say otherwise—and their hot night of passion confirms the prediction. Will love be waiting at the end of the trail? Or could Cody’s past destroy their future?

Patricia n, @ NetGalley said
   “A Cowboys Fate,” by Gini Rifkin is a fast-paced tale set in Colorado in the late 1880’s. Britania Rule had been deported from England after a misunderstanding of accusing the Queen’s nephew of being Jack the Ripper, and given the choices of her future destination, she accepts her fate and travels to Boston.  Britania has full faith in her abilities to read her cards and accept her fate, so when the cards tell her that her success lies in the town of Leadville, Colorado she seeks out an experienced guide to take her to her destination.  Cody James is a man who plays to win and due to circumstances in his past, he is a man on a mission to right the wrongs he experienced at the hands of his ex-partner.  Cody agrees to get Britania to Leadville, but he had no idea how much this trip would change his life.  Britania and Cody must fight for their burgeoning love affair against a force of evil that may be the death of them.  I was given this book to read by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Colorado Tartan Day, Celebrating Scottish Independence and the Declaration of Arbroath

 

From April 6th 2019: good memories and a bit of good history.
(don't miss the Medieval Covid masks)

     Shared a wonderful day with my sister at the Boulder County Fairgrounds during the Tartan Day festival. Here is the Colorado state tartan!
  There were several tents set up creating a Scottish
village offering sights and sounds begging us to explore and experience all things Scottish. 
  
We discovered armor, antique weaponry, demonstrations of spinning (this nice lady explained the drop-spindle which I have yet to master) beautiful
clothing, and books on clan history. And all the while we listened to amazing Highland Rock and Roll performed by the Angus Mohr group bought these two CD's         

Angus Mohr website
                                     
A wonderful display or armaments and armor. 

Clothes for the romantic at heart.

          There was a blacksmith demonstration, 

    A rare glimpse of a Faerie, as well as numerous Scottie dogs, some wearing kilts. 
For Steampunk lovers there was a leather helm fashioned after the headgear worn by physicians in the middle ages during the plague years.  Who knew by 2020 we'd all want one!

About Tartan Day 
Originating in Canada in the mid-1980's, Tartan Day is a North American Scottish heritage celebration of Scottish Independence. Held in the Spring, the gathering commemorates the April 6th, 1320 signing of the Declaration of Arbroath.
                
   Submitted on that date, in Latin, to Pope John XXII, the intention was to confirm Scotland's status as an independent, sovereign state, while defending Scotland's right to use military action when unjustly attacked.
     
    Believed to have been written in the Arbroath Abbey by Bernard of Kilwinning, Chancellor of Scotland and Abbot of Arbroath, the letter is the sole survivor of three created at the time. 
                            
                                            Arbroath Abbey
     The others were a letter from the King of Scots, Robert I, and a letter from four Scottish bishops which all presumably made similar points.                                               
 Steeped in turmoil and political intrigue the declaration was part of a broader campaign for independence from England's Norman kings and a plea to lift the excommunication of Robert The Bruce.
  
    Here are the most famous lines from the English language translation by Sir James Fergusson, Keeper of the Records of Scotland. 
  ...for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.
             
      Woot woot thanks for stopping by.
