ARC Arrival: The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y'Barbo

The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y'Barbo

Publisher: Waterbrook Press

I received this from Random House for an August blog tour.

About the book: The future is clearly mapped out for New York socialite Eugenia "Gennie" Cooper, but she secretly longs to slip into the boots of her favorite dime-novel heroine and experience just one adventure before settling down. When the opportunity arises, Gennie jumps at the chance to experience the Wild West, but her plans go awry when she is drawn into the lives of silver baron Daniel Beck and his daughter and finds herself caring for them more than is prudent -- especially as she's supposed to go back to New York and marry another man.

As Gennie adapts to the rough-and-tumble world of 1880s Colorado, she must decide whether her future lies with the enigmatic Daniel Beck or back home with the life planned for her since birth. Will Daniel's past -- and disgruntled miners bent on revenge -- take that choice away from her? (from the back cover)

About the author: Kathleen Y'Barbo is the best-selling, award-winning author of more than thirty novels, novellas, and young adult books, with more than 850,000 books in print. A graduate of Texas A&M University, she is currently a publicist with Books & Such literary agency. The mother of three grown sons and a teenage daughter, Kathleen makes her home in the Houston area.

Looks like a fun book. I really like the printed part of the cover better than the picture of the woman. It somehow looks like a recent photo/drawing rather than something that represents events in the 1880's.
