Deborah Camp's The Fallen Angel tells the story of innocent Justine Drussard who, when stranded in Tombstone, resorts to working in a brothel. She manages to get by with her purity intact by employing sleeping pills and stellar acting skills…until steamy stranger York Masters arrives. Suddenly, Justine finds herself helpless to resist York's charms. Melanie Haynes' sultry performance heightens the passion of this romance, navigating the tone from sweet to sexy seamlessly. She masterfully varies the pace as well: leisurely and gentle for those intimate scenes between Justine and York and speedy for the exciting action sequences.
Fate left the beautiful Justine Drussard stranded in Tombstone, and desperation made her take a job in a local brothel. She counts on her wits and acting ability, but her plans backfire when York Masters, a rough-riding stranger with a sun-drenched smile and a secret of his own, pays for an evening with Justine to save her from less savory options.
His tantalizing touch makes her weak with desire - a feeling she’d given up on for good - and each hungry kiss leaves her wanting more. Helpless to stop herself, Justine is swept into a dangerous and seductive world by a passion as scorching as the desert sun.

York Masters character.
I liked that it took place in Tombstone and it tied in characters like Doc Holiday & Wyatt Earp. A little campy, but fun.
No. I really enjoyed the reader. She's an excellent narrator.
No. I had a hard time connecting to Justine which made it difficult to follow the story at times.
Overall this is a good western romance novel. The only thing that I really didn't like was the main character, Justine. I didn't connect with her and it made getting through the book difficult at times. Otherwise I liked the book. I loved the other main character, York, as well as the side characters. It was fun. I would recommend it to other listeners.
