Publisher's Description

This Wild West adventure just might be the life she was meant to live.

The future is clearly mapped out for New York socialite Eugenia “Gennie” Cooper, but she secretly longs to slip into the boots of her favorite dime-novel heroine and experience just one adventure before settling down. When the opportunity arises, Gennie jumps at the chance to experience the Wild West, but her plans go awry when she is drawn into the lives of silver baron Daniel Beck and his daughter and finds herself caring for them more than is prudent–especially as she’s supposed to go back to New York and marry another man.

As Gennie adapts to the rough-and-tumble world of 1880s Colorado, she must decide whether her future lies with the enigmatic Daniel Beck or back home with the life planned for her since birth. The question is whether Daniel’s past–and disgruntled miners bent on revenge–will take that choice away from her.

 “The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper is a fast-paced story full of fun, action, drama, and love.”
–Mary Connealy, author of Calico Canyon, Petticoat Ranch, and Gingham Mountain
            
“If you loved Cathy Marie Hake, give yourself a treat with The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper.”
–Lauraine Snelling, author of the Red River Series and One Perfect Day

    This is one of the best series I have read so far and could not put the 3 books down until finished. I hope there will be more coming about the old west from this author as she is excellent. Thank you all for making these available.

    In 1880 America, socialite Eugenia Coopers life is all mapped out, including a marriage to rich banker Chandler Dodd. But this lover or western dime novels longs for an adventure of her own. When the opportunity arises, she jumps a train to Denver, Colorado to pose as a governess for ten-year-old Charlotte Beck. What she discovers in Denver, however, can hardly be called a girl. The grubby thing not only wears britches and refuses to bathe, she stole Eugenias pocketbook before Eugenia even left the train station.Then she meets a handsome man at the local store and wonders if this western adventure wont have a little romance. What she didnt expect was that she would be thrust into a scandal that would not only ruin her good name, but that of Charlottes father, Daniel Beck. Whats a girl to do?Eugenia reminds me of a flirty Anne of Green Gables. She never intends to get herself into such mischief, but time after time, catastrophe lay in her wake. I couldnt help but like her naivet and root that everything would work out perfectly for her in the end. I didnt much enjoy the excerpts from the Mae Winslow dime novels that started each chapter and stopped reading them about halfway through. I was just so caught up in Eugenias story that I didnt care a bit about ol Mae Winslow and her horse Lucky. Still, this is wild west romance fun, so if you like that sort of novel, you must read this one. Fun, fun, fun.

    I so enjoyed this book! "The Confidential Live of Eugenia Cooper" by Kathleen Y'Barbo was light, fun, romantic and just thoroughly entertaining! It is a fast-paced story filled with adventure, drama, and humor. Gennie seeks adventure and gets more than she bargained for when she leaves her genteel, upper-class New York home to experience the Wild West for a brief stay in Denver. Along the way she learns some valuable lessons about life, love and perceptions. This book simply made me smile!

    The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y'Barbo is the most fun I've had reading a romance novel in a long time! Eugenia "Gennie" Cooper wants just a little adventure in her life before getting married to her father's choice, so when the opportunity for a trip to Denver posing as a governess arrives, she can't help but take it. Working in the Beck household is a little more adventure than she had bargained for however. Charlotte, her ten year old charge, has been allowed to run wild for five years without a mother's influence. I stayed up until 3 am finishing this book, because I just couldn't put it down! Every time I thought I'd come to a place I could put it aside until morning Y'Barbo threw another monkey wrench into the works! This refreshing novel kept the best of romantic cliches and turned the rest on their head. I loved it!
