Known throughout for his prowess in the bedroom, Morgan Lyons, the eighth Earl of Westcliffe, cannot forgive an unpardonable affront to his honor. Discovering his young bride in the arms of his brother was a staggering blow-so he banished the beautiful deceiver to the country and devoted himself to the pursuit of carnal pleasure.
Claire Lyons was an innocent, frightened girl on her wedding day, seeking chaste comfort from a childhood friend. Now, years later, she has blossomed magnificently and has returned to London with one goal in mind: the seduction of her notorious husband. Unskilled in the sensual arts, she burns nonetheless for the kisses too long denied her. And she has but one Season to win back the heart of the rogue she betrayed.
They are masters of seduction, London's greatest lovers. Living for pleasure, they will give their hearts to no one . . . until love takes them by surprise.
"Oh! Jack, Ellen, come here this instant!" cried Jane Pellew in so excited a manner that the mail rider almost fell out of his jumper in his effort to see what it was that made Miss Jane "take on so." She was dancing around the broad old veranda waving one of the letters he had just handed her. "Too hot, Sis, and we are too comfortable," came Jack's lazy voice from under the big ash tree that shaded one side of the porch. "You have enough energy for all of us, so s'pose you come to us," Ellen called. "You won't be hot for long, but you are going to be very uncomfortable in a minute." With the warning, Jane jumped off the porch and landed in Ellen's lap, then pulled herself up quickly by means of one hand entwined in Jack's thick chestnut hair. "Shut up and listen!" commanded Jane. "Nobody has a chance to do anything else with you around," Jack reminded his sister.
In 1880's Wyoming Territory, two Deputy U.S. Marshals find themselves on the outside of societal norms. Cash Laramie, raised by the Arapahos, is known as The Outlaw Marshal for his unorthodox conduct toward criminals and his cavalier approach to life. Gideon Miles, one of the first African Americans in the marshal service, is honorable, fearless, and unrivaled in his skills with guns, knives, and tracking. These independent, resourceful lawmen develop a bond, establishing a formidable defense in a wayward land where good and wicked is often hard to distinguish and life is as cheap as a two-bit game of poker. Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles is a short story collection of eight rousing, noir Western tales with a hardboiled edge. The Wind Scorpion Kid Eddie Miles to Go The Bone Orchard Mystery Melanie Under the Sun (with Sandra Seamans) The Outlaw Marshal The Lawyer * * * * * Praise for "Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles" ... With ADVENTURES OF CASH LARAMIE AND GIDEON MILES, Edward A. Grainger has given fans of traditional Westerns something new and exciting to sink their choppers into. Not a fan of Westerns? Been a while since you've tucked into one? Prefer crime stories? No worries, these stories are as much crime, action, and adventure tale as they are Western. But all that genre affiliation aside, these are damn fine stories. --Matthew P. Mayo, Spur Award-winning author of "Tucker's Reckoning" I confess, until I read Grainger's Cash and Miles stories, I always thought of Westerns as dusty, dated affairs. But Grainger proved me wrong. His blend of Westerns and crime fiction is pitch-perfect, bringing out the best in both genres. --Chris F. Holm, Anthony Award nominee for "The Big Reap" The writing is spare and impactful, the stories are imaginative. Even if you don't think you're a fan of "Westerns," do yourself a favor and check out this collection --- it just might prove to be the best 99 cents you ever spent. --Wayne D. Dundee, author of the "Joe Hannibal PI" series If you're a Western fan and haven't yet made the acquaintance of Cash and Gideon, you definitely should, and this volume is a perfect introduction. --James Reasoner, author of "Texas Wind" Plain and simple, Edward A. Grainger's, ADVENTURES OF CASH LARAMIE AND GIDEON MILES, proves that there's not only life in the Western genre, but it's kicking butt and taking names. This is one of the most entertaining Westerns of the year. --Larry D. Sweazy, Spur Award-winning author of "The Coyote Tracker" The Adventures of Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles don't just provide good old fashioned Western adventure, but also give the Western genre a modern noir twist. A perfect example of pushing the boundaries of a genre while still providing solid entertainment. I'm there for the long ride. --Paul Bishop, author, screenwriter, star of "Take the Money and Run" These aren't just great Westerns; they're great stories. Mr. Grainger has put together one heck of a collection, featuring characters so full they call out for their own novels. Great work. And I look forward to what these characters do next. --Steve Weddle, author of "Country Hardball" There is humor and pathos and history and a reverence for the land and times. What a nice collection. --Patricia Abbott, author of "Home Invasion"
