Cady's Story by Blaise Kilgallen



Kate McGee, growing up wild on a cattle ranch develops a schoolgirl crush on cowboy, Cady Dillon. Seeking a “better” life, he heads for Virginia City, hoping to play some serious poker. In Virginia City, Cady is taken under the wing of Chastity Turnbull as his paid lover. When Chastity learns she hasn’t long to live, she sends Cady away and kills herself.

Kate’s father, Seth McGee, dies from a massive heart attack, and Kate is left alone.

Losing his winnings, Cady returns to Dry Wells, Texas, but is soon summoned back to Virginia City. Meanwhile, Oliver Starrett courts Kate McGee, thinking to marry Kate and her father’s money to help fund his political ambitions in Texas.

The ranch’s stables are torched after Kate is sexually attacked by Starrett. Cady returns, but will the pair find their way back to each other?


About the Author:

Blaise is a-dyed-in-the-wool New Jerseyite. Born and raised there, she says she will probably die there. She resides in semi-rural Sussex County, the northwest area of the “Garden State,” on 3-1/2 acres of untamed yard.

Blaise earned a B.S. in Fine Art Education from a N.J. State College, but taught only one year before heading into New York to seek employment in the advertising field. She worked at various positions with different ad agencies during a 10 year period. After being widowed, she earned her Real Estate Broker’s License and listed and sold houses and land in New Jersey for almost a decade.

That was when she began to write romantic fiction. Her novels were soon published and now she is published in both electronic formats and print--by a list of e-publishers. As the market changed and developed, most of her novels came to be classified as “steamy romances” rather than “sweet stories.”

Blaise has had more than a dozen romance novels published during the last decade. She continues to write historical and contemporary novels daily. She is also a prolific professional artist in several venues. Currently she paints and sells watercolors and collages, and creates romance covers for other e-publishers (royalties) and individual authors for a fee.

Review:

4.5 / 5
This book was like stepping back in time. The author captured the era perfectly.  The characters were strong and believable, making me want nothing more than for the main character to get what he wanted.  A refreshing read to check out.
