In "The Queen of Paradise Valley" you get a rich woman and a mystery man make plans and end up in a shotgun wedding. But the wedding ended in a four year prison sentence for a crime Del didn't commit. Well now Del is back and is ready to start over on that wedding.
Overall this romance novel needed a bit of work and it wasn't my favorite western. But, if you like westerns with schemes, mystery and weddings then give this a try. It might be just what you're looking for.
Diana Rennie, daughter of a wealthy rancher, attempts to persuade mystery man Del Russell to leave his grievances behind and forgive her father for past mistakes. Her careful plan goes awry and results in a shotgun wedding and a prison sentence for Del.
Four years later, Del is back in her life with a vengeance—back for his rightful share of Diana's ranch, back to prove he isn't the criminal she thought he was, back to finish what the two of them started years ago in a passionate daze. And he isn’t going anywhere, no matter what beautiful, treacherous Diana does or says to try to get rid of him.
