Publisher's Summary

#1 Best-selling Historical Western author Maggie Ryan brings you the first book in The Red Petticoat series.
The Red Petticoat is not just another whorehouse. This is a place for every painted lady to get her happy ending. Madame Jewel and her 'gems' welcome hardworking men to come inside for a home-cooked meal or a few hands of cards. They are invited to listen to a pretty girl sing or watch a show. If a bit of intimate comfort is desired, they are welcome to go upstairs and into the arms of one of the beautiful women wearing the red petticoats. However, refer to its gems as whores and you'll find yourself tossed out into the street.
This story all begins when Lady Juliette Gardner discovers she has been set up and her reputation ruined. She decides to leave England for good and find her way to the goldfields of California with the hopes of creating her dream and possibly striking it rich.
To Gabriel Vasquez, the hard work and isolation of working his claim is the only way to achieve his dream. When he discovers his new partner is a woman, a very beautiful, very stubborn English woman, he has no problem – except for the fact that she refuses to think of her safety. If she is to be his partner, he will have no hesitation teaching her exactly what happens to naughty, cheeky English ladies.
Gabriel and Jewel will discover that life has room for more than one dream and as they settle themselves in Culpepper Cove. This mining town, nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains, will never be the same once Juliette—Madame Jewel—opens The Red Petticoat.
Join award winning author Maggie Ryan as she begins the tale of The Red Petticoat and all of Madame Jewel's precious—but slightly flawed—gems.

Jewel's Gems

Any additional comments?

Even though this is the first book in the series, this is the second in the series that I have listened to. Each book in the series is written by a different author and can be listened to as a standalone. I enjoyed listening to how the Red Petticoat Saloon series started.

A feisty determined heroine, a strong dominant hero, a bit of romance, a little adventure and some steamy scenes all wrapped up in an entertaining story.

This series is a bit different than the normal historical westerns that I have listened to before. I requested this book for review and while I am not into spanking and I could have done without it, I enjoyed this story much more than another of her stories I recently listened too. Don't get me wrong a little bit of spanking is one thing but one of the spankings in this story bordered on abuse to me. The standing in the corner was just humiliation. If you do not like books with dominant males and spankings than this is not the book for you.

Don't get the wrong impression, Juliette becomes/is an independent, strong and smart woman. She just doesn't always think things through first. Which gets her into a bit of trouble. She meets her match in Gabriel. He is determined to keep her out of trouble and teach her to think first and act second. If she doesn't listen then he's going to teach her a lesson she won't forget.

I liked that there was enough time spent on Juliette's backstory to get a clear picture of her but at the same time I wish she and Gabriel and met sooner and had had more time to develop their relationship.

Logan McAllister did a really good job with the narration. Nice voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken. Nice even pace to the narration. Great character voices and accents. He made the characters and the story come to life. Very enjoyable

Repeated line chapter 14 & 18.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.
