Between Home and Heartbreak

by Jacqui Nelson

Genre: Historical Western Romance





Who is Eldorado Jane? Long-lost friend or scheming superstar?

Texas Hill Country — 1879

Plain Jane Dority vanished while riding in a storm beside her childhood best friend. Eighteen years later, Wild West trick-riding superstar Eldorado Jane returns to claim her birthright: the Dority homestead now owned by the steadfast Texan who never forgot Jane or forgave himself for her disappearance.

Lewis Adams would give anything to see his friend come home, but he’s certain Eldorado Jane isn’t his Jane. So why does this mesmerizing woman—with the talent and fame to have anything she desires—want the remote patch of land that he loves? There’s only one way to find out: accept a wager with a deceiver who holds the power to bring back his friend or break his heart. The outcome rests in her hands. Or does it?

Friendship. Betrayal. Blackmail. Eldorado Jane holds every card…except the one that matters most.

My Review:

I’ve always been a fan of take charge women who rule their own destinies, so Eldorado Jane struck a cord with me right away.

Imagine being married to a man you detest for a decade in order to protect the people you love.

Eldora is the star of her husband’s Wild West Show, but that’s not all. She’s also being forced to pretend she’s someone she’s not in order to gain the rights to a piece of land owned by Lewis Adams.

When Lewis meets Eldora he sees a similarity to his old friend, Jane, but quickly realizes the woman pretending to be her has an agenda of her own. Still, he can’t help the attraction that he feels for this mysterious woman.

Can she lead him to Jane? Why is she lying, and why does she want his land? And can he find out all her secrets without falling in love?

What follows is a story of blackmail, heart-pounding excitement, and suspense.

My favorite lines:

Her voice had dropped to a conspiratorial whisper. “I’m sorry. I’m going to have to hurt you again.”

“Eldora, is he dead?” The not-too-distant bellow made them both flinch. The eagerness in that shout rang in his skull like the bells of hell anticipating a funeral.

That’s fresh writing!

I give Between Home and Heartbreak 5 lovely kisses

    1. Good morning, Mae 🙂 I’ve read all of Jacqui’s books and would recommend any of them! This is part of a series, but they easily read as standalones.

    1. Thanks, Mrs. N.! Her books are like watching a great western, The Magnificent Seven or maybe The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly? 🙂
