Taming Jenna By Charlene Raddon! Book Tour Review!



Deserted by her father at the tender age of seven, Jenna Leigh-Whittington had taught herself to ride, shoot, brawl…and steer clear of the opposite sex. But now, in a lonely Utah canyon, the Pinkerton agent has drawn her gun on a rugged stranger—only to discover that, far from the dangerous outlaw she’d been tracking, he is Branch McCauley, hired gun…and the most irresistible rascal ever to tempt and torment a woman!


If there’s one thing McCauley trusts less than a female, it’s a female who packs a six-gun. But what a woman! Vowing to bring the sensuous hellcat to heel, McCauley has no inkling that their passionate battle of wills has just begun. Taming Jenna will be the most seductive—and satisfying—job he’s ever taken on.

My Thoughts

With wild determination, Jenna follows her robber suspect. Her  intentional and deceiving boyish appearance hides the sizzling woman underneath. Jenna makes her move on the dangerous man only to find out he is not her prey! Branch McCauley and Jenna are chasing the same man and from the moment they met, war has been declared. She is an independent woman, and not your typical product of the time. Oh well, a sort of fire, guns, and roses effect follows the story of these two as they fight the unbelievably strong attraction between them. Charlene Raddon has a unique way of transporting you into this western reality. A wonderful and sometimes intense western adventure awaits the readers of “Taming Jenna”!

About the Author

Charlene began her writing life at an early age, often penning stories where she cast herself as the heroine. It was after college when she dug out her old college typewriter and started her first novel, which came from a spirited dream she’d had the pervious night.

While that book never sold, her second novel did. Tender Touch became a Golden Heart finalist and earned her an agent who signed the book, and two others, in a three book contract with Kensington Publishing. Kensington went onto publish five of Charlene’s western historical romances: Taming Jenna (1994); Tender Touch (1994 Golden Heart Finalist); Forever Mine (1996 Romantic Times Magazine Reviewer’s Choice Award Nominee and Affaire de Coeur Reader/Writer Poll finalist); To Have and To Hold (1997); and as Rachel Summers, The Scent of Roses (1999).

Charlene took a break from publishing, but not from writing. A Kiss and A Dare is Charlene’s first paranormal romance. Divine Gamble is Charlene’s latest work and won first place in the western historical category of the 2010 Romance Through The Ages contest.

When Charlene isn’t writing, she loves to travel, do genealogy, digital scrapbooking and dyes eggs in the Ukrainian style. And she enjoys camping and fishing with her husband in the Utah wilderness.

    I chuckle at how you starred in your own stories early on, Char. Isn’t that what we all love when we read your novels, become that heroine? Plus who wouldn’t want to be as beautiful as the woman on that great cover!

  10. Thanks, Kathleen. Not sure what you mean about me starring in my own stories, but I sure wouldn’t mind looking like my cover heroine.
