RUBY: A Dakota Treasure Series 1 book by Lauraine Snelling, 2003. This book has a Christian author and publisher. This is the story of Ruby Torvald age 20 and her younger sister Opal. They have inherited a whore house it seems and also “inherited” the “soiled doves” who work there. She’s working on transforming the Saloon and whore house into a hotel and restaurant. The two prostitutes are now working for Ruby in a more upright manner. I can guess she succeeds and get’s married to the army captain or the cowboy..
