ABOUT THE BOOK
Tom McCabe has been asked by his father to go to Ft. Worth to escort a young woman back to Denver. When Tom gets to the house where this young woman lives, he is shocked by its location. What kind of woman lives among prostitutes?
Rosalie Kincannon lives in the infamous Hell’s Half Acre, where “soiled doves” ply their trade in saloons and dance halls. Rosalie’s father, William, owns the Yellow Rose and relies on Rosalie to serve as nurse and midwife to the women who work there. The women call her “an angel to the soiled doves.”
Rosalie promised her mother she would never become one of the women she cares for, that she’d be a “proper lady.” But Rosalie has never had an opportunity to leave the Acre and pursue a life of her own with a husband and children.
When her father uses her as a bet in a card game—and loses—she is suddenly faced with being indentured to a vile man from Denver whose intentions toward her are anything but “proper.”
When Tom arrives at Rosalie’s door, he is shocked to find a lady whose life in the Acre is truly hell. He vows to find a way to release her from the indenture, so her dream of being a proper lady will be achieved. But there are other problems standing in his way that involve his father and his two brothers, Will and Bo and the McCabe Ranch he’s called home all his life.
Tom never dreamed he’d find the woman destined to share his life in Hell’s Half Acre. He had to come to hell to find an angel.
