Whilst hunting elk in the Rockies, inscrutable loner John Slocum hears the telltale rumbles of an avalanche. When he arrives at the source of the sound, he finds five grieving women: Circe, Miranda, Sybil, Cassandra, and resident black-sheep Lilith. Their husbands and brothers were all killed in the avalanche, which also collapsed the town’s gold mine. Not only are the women left without their husbands, but they have no means of making money, which is desperately needed before the outlaw Batson gang returns to collect another “payment”. The last thing Slocum wanted to do was spend the winter in the mountains, but how could he refuse five beautiful women who are all inexplicably attracted to him?
This book is the definition of “light read”. It is almost like a fairy tale for adults in its simplicity. The plot doesn’t make sense and the characters don’t have much personality, but the action and pacing are so quick that it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story. This title is part of a larger series of indistinguishable books, so if you like one, you can check out the, literally, hundreds of others! Slocum and the Wanton Widows of Wolf Creek is a campy little western erotica that is perfect for filling an hour in a waiting room.
