"A good man is hard to find... Especially for Mercy Fairweather, whose preacher father kept her well hidden. Mercy was innocence, smarts and beauty - tempting to the Devil himself. But even an angel deserved some fun. So when cowboy Sam Devlin asked her for dinner, she found a way to say yes..."

Review:

The Fairweather sisters watch the cowboys saunter into town. Charity spies a lean, dark cowboy that looks dangerous as a desperado and when Mercy sees him, she practically falls in love with him. Sam Houston Devlin is the leader and his men refer to themselves as Devil's Boys. In the Alamo Saloon playing cards with Wyatt Earp, Wyatt has a different wager that he is sure Sam will take. Sam must get Mercedes LaFleche, a prostitute known as 'queen of the Alamo' to spend the night with him, for free. Miss LaFleche is otherwise occupied at the moment, but Wyatt describes Mercedes as a beautiful red head. When Charity sneaks out of the house, Mercy frantically goes looking for her at the Alamo. When a beautiful dark red haired woman comes to the saloon looking for her sister, and she gives her name as Mercy, Sam mistakes her for the beautiful Mercedes because he is convinced Mercy is her nickname. He knows where Charity is and they save her from ranch hand Tom Culhane, but Sam makes an enemy of Tom. As the sisters head for home, Sam asks Mercy out to dinner, and she accepts. They talk about themselves during dinner, and they really like each other. Sam can't believe that this preachers daughter is that kind of woman! After a wonderful dinner, Sam suggest a picnic and dessert. It is so romantic under the stars and moonlight, and Sam asks Mercy to let him love her - and when he does, he gets the shock of his life! Miss Mercy is no prostitute! She really is a preachers daughter! They go back into town and get married. A vengeful Culhane whispers lies to the Reverend Fairweather about the wager Sam made and they strike a deal to separate Sam and Mercy. After their wedding breakfast, Culhane gets Sam alone in the stable and he shoots him twice, then takes him away and leaves him to die, leaving Mercy thinking that Sam has changed his mind about loving her and wanting their marriage. Unwilling to forget about Sam, and determined to give him a piece of her mind, Mercy searches for him. It's almost a happy ending as Mercy finds Sam and nurses him back to health, but they face more challenges before they set everything to rights, and Sam takes the biggest gamble of his life when he comes face to face with his enemy.Oh what a ruckus is caused by a dare and a case of mistaken identity! A winning combination by Laurie Grant! Devil's Dare is a splendid story of love! Laurie Grant delivers a daring western romance! Only true love can survive the odds in Devil's Dare! This one is a sure bet -you can't lose! An accomplished author, Ms. Grant has achieved new heights with Devil's Dare!Gloria Miller -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.
