Julia 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?
