Prim and proper Pearl Jewel was more than out of sorts in her new found home in Texas, to say the least. She had plans to open up a school there in Hanging Tree, and had even secured a building and gotten a handful of students.

Cal McCade`s world was one of the wide open range and a campfire. His troubled past was all he needed for company. But Pearl tempted him as no woman had before, and he had urges he`d never had before, like prove that Pearl was all fire under the cool demeanor that she showed the world.

Pearl and Cal`s story was a good one, but one that I won`t be going back to re-read anytime soon. Compared to her sister`s, Pearl`s character is lacking, especially as Onyx Jewel`s daughter. Cal`s past was a tad predictable, but otherwise, it`s a good book to read on a lazy weekend.
