Hot Blooded Gunslinger Meets His Match
in this Feisty Lady Pinkerton
By Adrienne deWolfe, National Bestselling Author
When I set out to write my Lady Pinkerton character, Sadie Michelson, I wanted her to be a kick-butt heroine, who would make readers cheer. I cut my teeth on action-adventure movies as a kid, and I wanted to write a female, who could be a “John Wayne” type of character, without sacrificing her sensuality or femininity.
Needless to say, Sadie is not the kind of woman who would be happy, sipping tea in a Victorian drawing room. No, Sadie is more about competing with men in a man’s world – and beating them at their own game. Her playing field is the American Wild West, where she must use all her wits and wiles to survive as a crack shot and a master of disguise.
In my Lady Law & The Gunslinger series, Sadie has all kinds of interesting adventures (including jumping out of a burning brothel.) But my favorite scenes show her butting heads with her outlaw lover, William “Cass” Cassidy (better known as “Eros in Spurs.)
Below, you’ll find the quintessential Sadie snippet, where she turns the tables on “Eros in Spurs.” Enjoy the following sneak peek from Book 2, Dance to the Devil’s Tune.

(Scene Set Up: The book is set in Denver, 1883. Cass has just sneaked inside Sadie’s darkened hotel room.)
“Looking for someone, mister?” her voice was harsh.
Cass’s lips twitched. “They call her the Devil’s Daughter.”
A moment passed. Then a light bloomed at her elbow. She was lounging in an armchair, her chestnut mane spilling to her waist, lacy rosettes cascading from her breasts. The skimpy threads left little to his imagination. But what captivated Cass in that moment -– what had always captivated Cass about Sadie -– was the sensual fire burning in those hungry, tiger eyes.
“I got word you wanted me,” he said.
He hiked an eyebrow.
“But since you made the trip,” she said huskily, her trigger finger never wavering on her .32, “take off your clothes…”
