Something’s on the rise in One-Mule, Texas. And it ain’t just the temperature.

1880, West Texas

Honey Cafferty lives a happy, if precarious, existence as a traveling saleswoman. She sells her elixirs and potions while searching for the one thing she hasn’t been able to brew from the back of her colorful wagon—a sense of belonging. She arrives in Two Mule, Texas, with her Elixir of Love, a potion that improves a man’s libido but might just get her run out of town.

Sheriff Joe Tanner is protective of his little town. Downright hostile toward anyone who might take advantage of the fine folk under his protection. Any snake-oil salesman who rolls into town better just keep right on rolling.

Honey isn’t what Joe expected, from her vibrant red hair and cat-green eyes to her curvy mouth and hips. And when the men of the town begin to plead exhaustion—and place the blame squarely on her sweet-smelling shoulders—Joe has no choice but to launch an investigation. A very, very deep investigation…

This honey is both sugar and spice.

Sweeter Than Honey is a fast read and I loved every minute of it!

Honey is a travelling saleswoman who stopped in the cozy small town to spend the winter. When Honey meets Joe, both feel a passion towards the other that could change them for better or for worse. Their passion and chemistry is sizzling.

With the arrival of the Honey everything in the small town changes. Everyone notices, even the town sheriff (Joe). My first impression of Joe was that he was very rude. Joe is a Dominant person and it shows in a rude way. Though Honey made it clear exactly who was in charge from time to time. This is a kind of instant love story that some readers may tend to avoid. But the one thing I loved about this one was the humor that made me smile and laugh when I read the antics of the women of town. Miss Devlin has built engaging characters and written just wonderful and very descriptive sex.

This is for readers who want a quick fix of romance or erotic romance.


  1. Ooh, sounds like a quick, sexy read!n I am not a huge fan of small town romances nor westerns, but I’ll check this one out. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Sorrel.
