Description du produit

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

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Passable Old West Romance 10 mai 2014
Par Hapa Girl - Publié sur

The Tombstone Rose is probably the first novel written by J. Carson Black under the name, Annie McKnight. It's the 6th novel I've read by this author, so it was interesting to see how her writing developed before she became a best selling author.

The Tombstone Rose is an historical romance featuring real life Western figures like Tom McLaury, Sheriff John Behan, the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday. The famous Gunfight at OK Corral on October, 1881 comes at about the halfway point of the novel.

My first impression of our protagonist, 18 year old Charlotte, is she's rude, unappreciative and self centered. She's not the first immature, unsympathetic heroine, and I made the inevitable comparison to that other irritating and much celebrated woman of fiction, Scarlett O'Hara. Charlotte does develop as a character, but by that time, you might not feel too sympathetic.

The book contains well written descriptions of the booming Old West town and its many unsavoury characters. The plot was a little predictable, although some of the scenes were suspensefully written. Because of this and the fact I thought the ending somewhat weak, I rated it at 3.5 stars not 4.

Not too shabby for a debut novel, Ms. Black.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A well written western romance!! 4 Stars! 22 janvier 2013

In my opinion, this author has a 5 star book in her. Her writing is evocative and easy to read so you get a very readable novel with something of a literary feel. The quality of the writing is definitely a step up from many novels and the sense of time and place and history of Tombstone is well done.

This is definitely worth a read if you like a twisty turny romance with a good historical western flavour. NB: This is R13 on the hotness factor with some minor sexual content.

Why others may not have enjoyed it quite so much -

Unlikable female protagonist (this had to happen for the character to develop), possibly too many changes of scene - by this I mean there are various thread scenes in a novel that come together to create the story, this may have had a few too many in the authors attempt to ensure the historical authenticity of Tombstone at that period which lead to some readers feeling it 'went on too long'. Finally it is a mixing of genres between true western and romance which may have lead the more purist fans in either genre, to feel short changed.

Personally I like an interesting book whatever way it comes and this was a well written, interesting book. I would be happy to read another by this author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Remarkably Good History Underlaid With Unique Romance 16 mars 2012
Par Jamie K. Wilson - Publié sur

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.

The author keeps you completely engrossed in the story. Although in the beginning I couldn' t strand Charlotte I came to understand her immaturity and couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. Charlotte an Jake 're a couple who are truly in love and manage to come together through all the pain and heartache.'
