This is the summery for a book that was just offered to me:

Traveling west on the Oregon Trail, slave Lucy Bowman dreams of a life of freedom in California, but when her owner dies an untimely death, she is left at the mercy of the wagon master. As fate would have it, an outlaw known as Dangerous Dan comes to her rescue, but his idea of freedom and hers idea clash mightily.

Lucy doesn’t want an owner, she doesn’t want a husband, and she most certainly doesn’t want to be a poor cowboy’s bed-warmer. Parting ways with Dan, she is determined to write her own destiny. With scheming, wiles, and a little unlawful behavior, she manages to buy a brothel and attract the attention of the recently appointed sheriff, Raging Thunder.

Dangerous Dan and Raging Thunder collide as both men compete to save the woman they both see as more ingénue than prostitute. The lawless mining camp of Jimtown might not be big enough for the two men bidding for the attention of the painted lady known as Madam Lucille.


SERIOUSLY?  Dangerous Dan and Raging Thunder?  I mean... COME ON.  This gives me hope that I can one day get published.  Even if people make fun of my synopsis.

Is it a bodice-ripper novel? It sounds like one.

I like that the book was "offered" but not necessarily "recommended."

Of course, I find myself reading anything I can get my hands on, so long as it's in english, these days. 9_9

I, sadly, would not read this. It's a romance/erotica book--or that's what it's billed as but if you can't even come up with more clever names than Dangerous Dan and Raging Thunder, I don't wanna read.

Yep. That's a bodice-ripper.


Yeah. Through all my desperation, there are still some things I refuse to pick up. But in general, the bar has definately been lowered :/

Was it a harlequinn romance or something? Those always have horrible summaries and well, stories. lol!

It is actually not. The plot sounds almost too (i hate to say it) complicated for a harlequinn. But yeah. :P

I actually lol'd. You know, I'd be tempted to read it, just for a laugh. I'm masochistic like that though.

Mayhap you have heard of it, but this is always a good place to go trolling for wretched books: http://community.livejournal.com/bookfails/

I think the lawless mining camp of Jimtown made me laugh more than Dangerous Dan and Raging Thunder

I also enjoyed "his idea of freedom and hers clash mightily" and the use of "ingenue".
