THE RANCH WIFE AND THE RAMROD! In this erotic western romance, Kathleen, trapped in an abusive marriage which convention says she can not end and isolated on a remote ranch with a violent, controlling husband, still keeps her spirit and hopes unbroken. Then one day the tall, silent, gentle Vance, whose lightning reflexes and hatred of injustice have earned him a reputation as one of the West's deadliest gunfighters, rides onto the ranch and into her life. After he sees how Kathleen's husband Boyd mistreats her, Vance agrees to help her escape and seek haven in a distant town. With only her brutal husband as a tutor in love, Kathleen has learned to hate sex, but as she and Vance travel together, Kathleen begins to experience physical stirrings that both frighten and thrill her. Seeking shelter in an Apache village they find Boyd's mutilated body, his punishment for the crime of raping an Apache maid. Free from the guilt of adultery, Kathleen quenches her passion for Vance, and discovers their love is mutual. At first the two can not get enough of each other, but when a lover's quarrel separates the pair, Kathleen finds herself alone in a mining camp threatened with gang rape by the sex starved minors. Saved by Vance's deadly gunfire, Kathleen tells Vance she loves him, and the two engage in heated, passionate lovemaking. But, the next day, a wagon train filled with mail-order brides creates further misunderstanding, and opportunities for Kathleen to learn a "few tricks to keep her man happy." But, when this dangerous gunfanner proposes marriage, Kathleen must decide whether it is love or gratitude she feels for the man who has awakened her sexually, and whether she is ready to commit herself to a life that promises its own dangers and hardships.
