Riverboat gambler Grandy Adams has a choice: marry Zanna Hathaway or hang. Simple, right?
He is an innocent man on his way to the gallows, accused of dealing the wrong man a very dirty hand of cards. She is a lovely young widow in need of a little insurance to protect her from her late husband’s lecherous brother. Grandy is in no position to argue with Zanna’s proposal: marriage in name only. But soon unexpected feelings for Grandy threaten Zanna’s carefully planned, if unorthodox, arrangement. Despite her best efforts and intentions, she is drawn to the man with the shady past, whose tender kisses could prove her undoing.
Deborah Camp’s Primrose is a period story with all the right ingredients: a plucky heroine, a bad boy, and an unlikely romance.
It’s Texas in 1867. The beautiful widow Zanna Hathaway proposes a sham marriage to a riverboat gambler named Grandy Adams. Both characters have ulterior motives for their peculiar arrangement, but this un-romantic union is complicated when genuine feelings emerge between them.
Camp excels in her characterizations of the eccentric Texans. Narrator Melanie Haynes brings them to life through her dynamic, regionally-appropriate twang.
