Product Description:

USA Today bestselling author Jo Goodman returns to the gunslinging outlands of A Touch of Frost with a sizzling new romance where the new town doctor learns there's nothing she likes better than a run-in with the law.

Dr. E. Ridley Woodhouse is like no physician Ben Madison has ever met--she's a woman. As the newly elected sheriff of Frost Falls, Colorado, Ben is tasked with welcoming Ridley to the community. But while Ben might be tempted by the new doc's charms, getting the town to accept a big-city, female doctor is no easy feat. To earn their trust she'll have to prove herself and Ben determines to help her...even if she's the most stubborn woman he's ever met.

When the husband of one of Ridley's patients threatens her, forbidding Ridley from treating his wife or children, all of Ben's protective instincts kick in. Ridley has come to rely on Ben's steady presence and the delicious tension that simmers just below the surface of their easy friendship--but as much as she trusts that his warnings to steer clear of Jeremiah Salt are sincere, she's never been one to back down from a challenge and she refuses to abandon her patient.

But sticking to your guns can earn you trouble in the rough terrain of the Wild West and danger threatens Ridley from unexpected places, forcing Ben to confront his deepest fear in order to save the woman he loves.



Sheriff Ben Madison knows that he is to meet the new doctor at the Frost Falls railroad station, but he has no clue what’s in store when he finally does make the acquaintance of Dr. E. Ridley Woodhouse – Miss Woodhouse, that is. Ben knows that the new doc has big shoes to fill, and he’s more than a bit concerned about the reception a female doctor is going to get in this small Colorado town. In the meantime, he’s willing to give her a chance to prove herself to their fellow townspeople, and perhaps to him as well.

It doesn’t take long for Dr. Woodhouse to start serving in her job, and as she becomes more involved with day to day life in town, she discovers that there are some things perhaps she’s not meant to know, and people who may not be willing to be treated by a young female doctor. Ridley’s calm demeanor and capable manner win her detractors over, but it’s Ben who’s heart she’s captured, although neither of them is fully aware of it….yet.

A Touch of Flame is the latest of author Jo Goodman’s historical western romance novels, and it’s every bit as solid as one can imagine those who lived in the Old West had to be. Ridley is at the forefront of the movements that will carry into the 20th century – woman’s suffrage, the temperance movement and her unlikely choice of career in that timeframe put Ridley’s character in an interesting spot, especially considering Ben’s position as the law in town. Ben is fair and open to the changing roles for women, and Goodman’s skill as a writer allow Ben’s character to be realistic and representative of the time with subtlety and interest. Ridley and Ben are a fantastic couple, charming and interested in their fellow townspeople, and in each other, and their romance is summer sidewalk sizzling hot! A Touch of Flame is a meaty story, deep with emotion and a strong sense of community that brings the western sagas of the 20th century cinema to mind in all the best ways. Great historical western romances are few and far between these days, and nobody writes them better than Jo Goodman!
