Présentation de l'éditeur

“Spellbinding! Tombstone—the time, the place, the people—come alive in these pages. I couldn’t put the book down.”
—Jane Candia Coleman, Author of MOVING ON and DOC HOLLIDAY'S WOMAN.

***** Before J. Carson Black wrote thrillers, she wrote historical novels under the name, Annie McKnight. *****

English-born Charlotte Tate has longed to be an actress from the time she was a little girl. Instead, she finds herself in the rough boomtown of 1880's Tombstone Arizona, looking helplessly on as her sister Mary takes her last breath. Mary made foolish choices—with men and their future prospects--and now Charlotte is left alone in a foreign land. Charlotte is made of stern stuff, though; she is determined to make her mark. Headstrong and ambitious, she becomes a theater headliner in Tombstone during the heady days when the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday stride the boardwalks. There’s a price to be paid for fame, and for Charlotte’s unusual brand of defiant audacity. She’s strong enough to withstand any storm, but her contrarian streak leads only to more heartbreak.

Jake Cottrell has a ranch in the Sulphur Springs Valley—a dream realized, and one he’s held for a long time. But he lost his beloved wife to illness, and this colors his view of the world. In Charlotte Tate he sees passion and wildness--and a chance to love again.

Forged by bad experiences, Charlotte is a hard person to love. Only Jake can see her intrinsic worth, only Jake is willing to see beyond her defiant exterior. Against the backdrop of the O.K. Corral Gunfight and the changing face of the American West, Jake and Charlotte must find their way together, or come apart forever.

"Some books you just can’t put down. If you are a fan of historical western fiction The Tombstone Rose will be one of them . . . The Tombstone Rose is the best historical fiction novel I’ve read in a long time."
—James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Remarkably Good History Underlaid With Unique Romance 16 mars 2012
Par Jamie K. Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
After reading the first chapter of Tombstone Rose, I nearly did what I do with about 90% of my free Kindle downloads at that point - delete. I hated the main character, a selfish, childish, shallow beauty. However, since the book was so well written and I WAS interested in the male lead, I kept going.

Boy, am I glad I did. The main character is a Western Scarlett O'Hara, and is ultimately redeemed with a traditional romance Happy Ending, not a Frankly my dear. About halfway through the book, I fell in love with both of them, despite her flaws. The history was brilliantly done - not just used as background, but carefully researched and incorporated into the plot. The romance underlying the book is built with a light touch, very Harry-Met-Sally, with the characters falling in love over the course of years rather than weeks. It's also one of the few female coming-of-age stories I've read. While the book has some minor problems (a sprinkling of typos and odd characters left over from OCR conversion and a few dangling plot threads), I would have gladly overlooked those problems and paid full price for the book. As it is, I'll be looking for J. Carson Black's books in the future, particularly historicals. She's one of those writers who can probably write anything well.

Tombstone Rose is quite long for a romance, short for a straight historical. It follows seven or eight years in the life of Charlotte, a young British girl set adrift with scarcely any resources other than beauty, a good voice, a very few friends, and a burning desire to succeed in order to wreak vengeance upon the man she blames for killing her sister. Her first job is as a "pretty waiter", girls who made a percentage getting men to buy drinks in saloons. From there, she has often-dramatic ups and downs, but finally gains regional fame as the Tombstone Rose, a soprano singer. Her fortune is made after she invests in a copper mine. Being loved, however, is her most difficult battle.

Apparently Tombstone Rose is yet another reverted-rights book from the all-but-defunct publisher Dorchester. Readers who love historical fiction done well should thank their lucky stars that J. Carson Black fought for her book and has re-released it herself in e-title format here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect and Evocative! 14 mars 2012
Par William Simon - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you want a crackling romance, an evocation of the Old West, a heroine who has her own mind and is not afraid to speak it, plus a hero that not only loves her for it but respects that about her, look no further than THE TOMBSTONE ROSE.

Western fans will love it, romance readers will adore it. The combination of the two is unbeatable. Don't pass this one up!

I loved this book. Just when you think you can predict the ending there's a new twist. Romantic and well written. I highly recommend this book if you love romance. I'm a lover of tombstone Arizona so this book was amazing.

I enjoyed the characters and the desert sitting. To read books about women before women's lib is always good. We've have it so good!!! To read of the hardships of these women, it proves how strong they had to be in order to survive.
