Help A Bitch Out

S-HaBO-Day: Gambling With Emerald Earrings

Help a Bitch OutJulia is looking for this book – which sounds very sweeping! 

 Sometime between 1975 and 1979, I read a book set in Wyoming or Colorado, during the Cattlemen/Shepherders War. I believe the characters names were Jason and Kate. I know she had green eyes and that Jason(?) bought her a pair of emerald earrings.

As life would have it, Kate left or got sent away and took up with a gambler named Jacques. Jason(?) gambles with Jacques and loses the emerald earrings.

I remember during the gambling scene, Jacques said he had a mistress with green eyes.

I THINK the cover had a lot of brown in it. I know the book is not a Rosemary Rogers or a Laurie McBain or a Kathleen Woodiwiss.

I surely would love to know if anybody else remembers this book and/or what the heck the name is.

Never gamble with a guy named Jacques when the prize is earrings. Do you recognize this book?

    I got a lead toward a book called Winter Fire by Susannah Leigh. I’m tracking the book down now. Thanks!
