In her latest novel, Notorious, beloved author Janet Dailey goes West, to the vast, beautiful, wild ranch country of Friendly, Nevada -- where things are anything but friendly. Trying to manage Spur Ranch, the family compound she inherited from her grandfather, tough, no-nonsense Eden Rossiter finds herself harassed mercilessly by nasty Duke DePard. DePard who owns the Diamond D Ranch, a two and a half million acre expanse that neighbors Spur Ranch and as the richest man for miles, has managed to gain almost complete authority in Friendly. Duke believes that Eden has murdered his brother, Jeff, years ago, and will do anything to see that Eden fails. If that's not enough, Eden also has to deal with her older brother Vince; although Vince is protective of Eden, and the two love each other, Vince has a big gambling problem and pressures Eden incessantly to sell the ranch, something she steadfastly refuses to do.
In the midst of Eden's problems, a stranger named Kincade pulls into town; a long-time rodeo rider whose dreams of a National Championship were shattered along with his riding arm, Kincade finds work at Spur Ranch, and finds himself irresistibly attracted to Eden. Strong, silent and indifferent to DePard's power, Kincade becomes Eden's ally in her desperate attempt to get her cattle to market -- the only thing that will save the ranch. He also realizes that Eden reciprocates his feelings of affection, but her tragic past has left her with a deep distrust of men and of love; as she grapples with her own desires, Kincade tries to break down the wall Eden has built around herself and to make her understand the depth of his feelings for her.
As expansive, majestic and compelling as the land on which it takes place, Notorious reaffirms Janet Dailey's position as the pre-eminent romance writer in America. A sweeping novel which details the difficulties and rewards of love and desire, as well as the power of the past to hurt and destroy, Notorious will undoubtedly continue Janet Dailey's stellar record of bestsellers, delighting her legions of fans and winning her countless more.
