FREE shipping on qualifying offers. Serena Walsh is the beautiful and unwilling plaything of the fanatical Mormon, Elder Greer. Dragging her across the desolate prairie as he seeks a place for settlement.

Jennifer Blake has become one of my go-to authors in the genre because she not only delivers on the WTFuqery Experience ™, her writing is downright pornographic at times in terms of how luscious her descriptions are and how broad her vocabulary is. I'm always learning new words from her that I'd never heard before, and I would happily listen to this woman describe food and furniture to me for hours; she makes everything sound so pretty. It should be illegal to be so eloquent.

the author writes well and the first few chapters our heroine is quite likeable, willful and smart. Said virtues seem to desert her the moment she meets our hero...if you can call the male lead any of that

***SPOILERS BELOW***

Boy howdy I hope you like attempted rape because I've lost count of how many times this happens, at 73% of the book i'm guessing around the dozen.Between those and the actual sex scenes i've found myself skipping a whole lot of pages. It's not that he writing is bad, i's just there's so much horizontal tango when i'm just trying to stay to this semblance of a plot
I hope you like successful rape too, because that happens, and it's done by none other than the hero. Who after forcefully seducing our heroine proceeds to tell her that he's very sorry for what happened (he did't really BELIEVE she was a virgin see, which would have made all her refusals to proceed to have sex perfectly void) but welp, now that it happened she may as well become his mistress.

among many other heroic acts our brooding hero partakes in we have:
* Pretty much kidnapping the heroine, as he keeps her in his rooms for several days without giving her anything decent to wear so she won't leave
continuously discourage her from leaving him by threatening with might happen to her outside his 'care'
* Keeping her from even talking to other people, least she find someone willing to help her
* which is perfectly reasonable i guess because he immediately becomes jealous and assumes she's a gold digger in search of a rich guy
* Leaving her alone for weeks without a penny assuming the love rival who hates her won't try to meddle (as result heroine is starved, threatened and almost raped a couple times), then gets mad at her when he comes back and finds out that love rival drugged her and tried to (can you guess?) have her raped by his best friend.
*Mistrust everything she does and assume the worst of her at every possible turn
*Straight up blackmail the heroine for sex

this story is a wreck. It's entertaining and well written but literally every man in the story with more than one line of dialog is horrible and either tries to rape or forcefully coerce the heroine. The male love rival orchestrates the heroine's drugging, sees her thrown out of where she's living and drugs her, putting her pregnancy at a risk. And we are supposed to feel bad for him because he just wanted her so very much he's very sorry.
Being sorry doesn't keep him from eventually threatening her in exchange of (guess, just guess) sex, even when the heroine makes clear it'll be as unwilling as it gets.

TLDR, good writing, cringing content and the story should have been about Consuelo.
Lyrtois
"Since she had known this man, she had been assaulted, nearly raped, subjected to public humiliation, and robbed of everything she owned. She had been hounded and harassed, held up to scorn, charged with vile accusations, branded with foul names, and threatened with acts of violence. Her life had been endangered, she had been harried and attacked, chased down, her horses and carriage taken from her, her clothing shredded, and her pride and modesty stripped away as dozens of strange men had prodded and handled her...Rage boiled up inside her, bringing color to her cheeks and a militant look to her eyes."

Golden Fancy begins in 1893 (I think that was the year, too lazy to go back and check). Serena Walsh headed west via wagon train with her parents in hopes of striking it rich in the latest gold strike in Colorado (couldn't afford going via rail, so they signed on with a group of Mormons heading west). Her parents died along the way, leaving her in the care of Mormon Elder Greer who lusts after the beauteous Serena and wants to make her bride #4 (or is that #5?). The lusty elder gets a wee bit carried away and though she's able to fight Greer off, she's banished from the train with only a few personal belongings (they took her wagon and furnishings away). Alone in the wilderness, she stumbles across gambler Ward Dunbar and he brings her first to Colorado City and then Cripple Creek, where he runs a gambling hall. Ward decides to *keep* Serena as his mistress, and she's pretty much stuck as if she did (or could) leave, with no money or friends she'd just end up in a crib or as another man's mistress.

So she stays with Ward, but life isn't all peachy since his partner Pearlie is none too thrilled with this new arrangement and she doesn't waste time when Ward has to head to Denver for a few days on business. She's a mean 'un. Serena also catches the eye of mining millionaire Nathan Benedict, the evil Elder Greer sticks around to cause more trouble, and there's also a jack the ripper like character offing local prostitutes..

I'm a fan of Jennifer Blake, so I'm always happy to find her older ones at the library sales when I spot them, and this one didn't disappoint. I like Colorado settings a lot, and while I've only visited the CO Springs/ Cripple Creek area twice, the author seemed to have a good feel for the historical setting, and from her notes at the end she did spend some time there getting a feel for things. One plus with Blake is that she's got a good knack for imparting to the reader the smaller details of the historical period she's writing about - you don't just jump out of those clothes in a couple of seconds (let alone get back into them without a maid). I didn't find this quite as steamy as other Blake novels I've read, but I do want to caution potential readers that this was written in 1980 and it does have the *forced seduction* trope that was very popular back than. It wasn't an alpha a-hole male kind of forced seduction, but it is there none the less. There are readers who can't get past them, hence the warning. 3.5/5 stars
