Product Description

Product Description

The fourth novel in the Hearts of Owyhee western romance series!

Cupid's bullet...

Hired gun Kade McKinnon interrupts a bank holdup and is shot by the teller, Iris Gardner, whose victims have a tendency to be the next groom in town. Will he be the groom this time?

Cupid's bow...

Iris Gardner, a smart, independent bank clerk, fell in love with Kade when she was too young to know better. So when he walks back into her life and her bank, it's only fitting that she shoots him ... by accident, of course.

Cupid's blindfold...

Kade doesn't know Iris's company is the one who hired him to escort a bullion shipment, and Iris doesn't know Kade owns the security company, but they both know robbers are on their trail. Which is more likely to be stolen--the silver, or his heart?

I haven’t read the other Much Ado books yet as I received Much Ado About Miners as a gift but, judging from what I’ve read, I don’t expect to be disappointed. In fact, I treated myself to the other books in the series because I am absolutely certain I will love them as much as I’ve loved Much Ado About Miners (well, except for Much Ado About Marshalls, which I've also received as a gift).

Jacquie Rogers has a way with words and she creates great plots with lots of action, humor, romance and whatnot. If you do want a good laugh, then Much Ado About Miners is THE book to read.

Both the main characters and the secondary ones are spot on and, as a reader, I love to hate a villain as much as I like to fall in love with the good guys – which is what happened with this story.

Jacquie was also able to bring to life Duke, a very nice cat – well, I have to admit that maybe not everyone will agree with this statement, ask Mrs. Brouster – that caught my heart as much as Kade and Iris did (and yes, I love animals and cats in particular – I guess that makes me partial to Duke, doesn’t it?)  Anyway, Duke IS special but you’ll have to read the book to see why.
All in all, this book is a very good read and one I highly recommend.

HASH(0xa3aa9054) out of 5 stars Hilarity, Adventure, Mistaken Identities makes this a laugh out loud read! A heartwarming romantic tale of the Old West! Feb. 20 2015
By Chanticleer Book Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What happens when a handsome gun-slinging cowboy, tries to stop a bank robbery only to get shot by the one and only Miss Iris Gardner, the farsighted, bespectacled bank teller with a loaded peacemaker, and the president of her local suffragist branch. Kade McKinnon, overhears her name as he fades in and out of consciousness. If memory serves him, it belongs to the most ornery, rambunctious girl to ever cross Kade's path during his younger days.

But Iris is no longer a young girl; she has developed into a hot blooded, intelligent, and beautiful woman. And unbeknownst to Iris, she has caught the attention of the most well-known gunslinger-for-hire in the West, by trying to blow his head off. It isn't the first time Iris has shot a man.

Iris is by far the most independent woman you will meet in all the territory. She is a woman with a plan, and there is no man around that can steer her off her path. She believes that there is more for her than "cleaning and breeding." She, along with several other suffragists in Silver City, Idaho, created a mining investment company that is sure to set them all on the path for financial independence. All seems to be going according to plan until Kade, the older boy she used to have a crush on, rides into town and she shoots him.

Kade is a gunslinger, a "for hire" true rough and tough man of the West. He lives for the adventure and loves life on the trail. He has made it plain that he is not going to get tied down by a wife. He is in town to get the job he was hired to do done, and then it is back on the trail to his next paid adventure. And there's nothing that will change his mind. As much as he is attracted to Iris, he knows that he is not the settling down type of man. So Kade tries to keep his mind on his work and off from her fine figure and blonde tresses.

Hilarity, adventure, mistaken identities, and romance make "Much Ado about Miners" by Jacquie Rogers a hit for anyone who has a penchant for classic Westerns and Shakespearean comedies. She lassos the genres together in a most enjoyable way making this tale a true pleasure to read. From saddles sores and thorns from the trail, to finally being able to breathe when the last binding on the corset is released, even the most die hard Western readers will be impressed with Roger's knowledge and expertise she portrays as she takes you back in time to Silver City.

Rogers' delightful characters bring their own distinct flavor to Much Ado About Miners: the Shakespeare quoting sidekick, Phineas; a trouble-making scraggly yellow feline named "Duke;" dastardly despicable bad guys; and others. Her scenes had me laughing so hard at times, I was in tears! This entertaining tale will have you rooting for the good guys while hanging on for a wild and fun ride that starts on the first page and doesn't let up to the very end. And, trust me, you'll never think about biscuits in the same way again.

I was caught hook, line and sinker in this heartwarming, romantic tale of the old West with its unforgettable characters and delightful surprises. There are three more rollicking adventures in the Hearts of Owyhee series by Jacquie Rogers waiting to be enjoyed. What are you waiting for?

This is the fourth book that I've read from Jacquie Rogers' Hearts of Owyhee series. With each book, she amazes me with her knowledge of the old West, which you read in her characters' dialogue and her descriptions/narrations. I love how I learn new things about Western history with each book. It's like a reading a great romance with a bonus, being that I am a huge fan of Westerns. I had fun reading the story of Iris, who I met back in the Much Ado About Marshals book. I love it when characters from other books are given their own story. Thanks for another funny book full of wonderful, heartwarming characters.

My biscuits are burning from this scorcher of a book. I will never be able to bake again without a wicked grin on my face.This is the latest installment of the Much Ado series, and it's as explosive as a stick of dynamite.
Kade McKinnon is a loyal family man, who is still trying to prove his worth. He comes home for a short visit to check in and see what's going on with the Family mine, who is ready to deliver a bullion shipment, carrying a family fortune. Unbeknownst to everyone, he is going to have his say on how the bullion shipment is delivered and protected, regardless of who else is involved. Little does Kade know, fate has stepped in and sent a sign in the form of a speeding bullet, right at him.
Enter, Iris Gardner, a stubborn, opinionated, intelligent, and beautiful woman. Suffering from the expectations of hetr Mother, she is trying to find a way to be happy in life and follow her dreams. She heads a suffragist movement, and is head strong on following it through, to prove she doesn't need a man to get by in life. But need and want are two very different words. When Kade enters the bank she works at, and intercepts a bullet meant for bank robbers, her world is thrown on its axis.
Can anyone be safe from Cupids game of Russian Roulet? And what will become of the bullion shipment with its hired guards of unknown talent. Can Kade and Iris find a way to please their families and themselves? It is worth finding out, you will be sucked in with every page, and find yourself wishing for more. This town doesn't disappoint and neither do its characters.
Don't forget the roughest, toughest, and newest member of the law, Deputy Duke. He has a score to settle with anyone who ruffles his fur the wrong way. And this time his bite is worse than his meow. Good thing he's on Kades' side.

HASH(0xa3d9503c) out of 5 stars Charming, exciting, and very funny Dec 26 2013
By Lornwal - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
MUCH ADO ABOUT MINERS is an action-packed, charming, and wonderfully funny Westrn historical romance. Author Jacquie Rogers has given us delightful characters and a story full of surprises. While those surprises are fun and unexpected, they are fully integral to the plot and the personalities of the characters.

Our heroine – vision-challenged, suffragist iris – has a mind of her own and an unfortunately itchy trigger finger. Courageous and irrepressible, she proves quite a handful for hunky gunman (and undercover security agent) Kade, whose run-ins with her keep both of them hot and bothered, and more often than not, careening toward calamity. Kade and Iris are endearing and original characters, and Ms. Rogers does a wonderful job of creating vivid secondary characters as well. The barroom brawl scene is one of the funniest, and best choreographed, scenes I've read in a long time. It's really priceless. And how can you not love a hero who, when confronted by a surly, brawny miner who objects to a scraggly alley cat sitting on the bar, defends the cat, growling, "He's with us."

If you love to read Westerns and love to laugh, you'll love MUCH ADO ABOUT MINERS!

HASH(0xa3f23e10) out of 5 stars Much Ado Perfection Dec 22 2013
By MishkaGirl - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Much Ado About Miners was every bit as good as the earlier books in this series. Iris is up to her old tricks when she shoots an innocent man in the head during a bank robbery. The relationship between Iris, part of a suffragist group and President of a secret consortium, and Kade, her best friends brother who she has been secretly in love with since the age of 13, is the focus of this installment.
Although Iris and Kade are determined to remain single and independent, they find it difficult to avoid cupids' arrow when they find themselves repeatedly thrown together.
Ms Rogers' sense of humour shines through with several hilarious incidents involving Iris, an accident looking for somewhere to happen, and the unsuspecting Kade.
The picture Ms Rogers painted of the cat and it's antics had me crying tears of laughter.
Weaved throughout this funny, sometimes serious, story is a tender romance that seems to conquer all obstacles.
I looked forward to this book and was fortunate enough to receive an ARC. I am so pleased I did, it did not disappoint.
