Garnet Diana Dulan swung open the doors of the Silver Dollar Saloon, sucked up a lunch full of cigar smoke, and listened intently to the sounds of men playing poker and the scrape of boots across the wooden floor; she felt right at home. After just minutes inside the doors of the saloon she knew she'd made the right decision to leave her sisters and the wagon train of brides heading to California.
Quickly she negotiates a job with the owner to play piano in the bar for room and board. Garnet is happy with her new arrangement and starts to settle into her new routine, that is until she runs into Sheriff Gabe Walker.
Sheriff Walker is convinced that this unusual, blue-eyed beauty is not the kind of woman he needs taking up residence in his clean town, and he won't rest until he runs her back to where she came from. But Garnet is a sassy Southern woman who speaks her mind and won't listen to a word he says. In fact, Gabe is certain that he can see lightening streak across her blue eyes in brilliant, jagged lines when she's angry.
The two lock horns on more than one occasion, but when her life is threatened and she is wrongfully accused of murder and robbery, it is Gabe who saves her from lynching. Considering all the damage already between them, it will take a miracle for either of these two to put aside their stubbornness and admit their love.

Carolyn Brown and her husband divide their time between two small towns, Davis, Oklahoma, and Nocona, Texas. They have three grown children, Lemar, Amy, and Ginny, and nine grandchildren. In addition to writing, she is an avid reader and loves to travel.
Garnet is her fourth installment of The Promised Land romances.From Booklist:
Garnet Dulan, like three of her sisters before her, has chosen to leave the bridal train headed for California and strike off on her own. Frenchman's Ford, in the Nevada Territory, is a dangerous town, and Sheriff Gabe Walker takes instant exception to Garnet's appearance in the Silver Dollar Saloon. First he tries to run her out of town; then he arrests her for bank robbery and murder. When she is broken out and threatened by the true culprits, however, he suffers a change of heart, helped along by a strong mutual attraction. So Garnet, now unable to make her living as a saloon piano player, discerns the town's need for a good seamstress and settles into a cottage owned by Gabe's uncle. The consistently high quality of Brown's plotting and characterization makes the Promised Land series, and in particular Garnet's tale, a delight to read, as Brown skillfully incorporates a wealth of interesting historical detail into each vivid adventure.
