Temperance . . .
When Lacey Van Schuyler Durango and Blackie O’Neal stake their claim for the same piece of Oklahoma land, the battle lines are drawn.
On Lacey’s side: teetotaling, abstinence, and do-gooding.
On Blackie’s side: betting, boozing, and bedding.
Versus . . .
The prim and proper Lacey is a newspaper woman on her own crusade to the tame the West. She plans to turn this nameless prairie town into a civilized piece of heaven. Dark and handsome, Blackie is a Texas gambler peddling his own brand of sin. And he’s just found the perfect spot for his new saloon and bordello, if he can run Lacey out of town . . .
Temptation . . .
Neither the straitlaced crusader nor the charming cardsharp are above dirty tricks and double-crosses to get what they want -- even if what they want turns out to be each other . . .
