Amazon.com description: Product Description: The small town of Rainwater, Oklahoma, has become a notorious boomtown now that a gusher has flooded its streets with drillers, welders and roustabouts of every description. Jill, a spunky and hard-working young woman who runs the hotel for her aunt, is unprepared to cope with the attention she receives from the woman-hungry men. Despite her attempts to thwart their advances she finds herself cornered by a group of men on the street one afternoon when Thad Taylor, a young neighbour, comes to her rescue. Believing Jill to be a "street flapper", Thad makes it his duty to curb her wild ways. Jill wants nothing to do with Thad - until a woman is murdered in town. Now, Jill's finally accepted Thad's protection...but is she willing to accept more?
