Classic & Old School > Please help me find this book


I'm looking for a book written sometime between 1975 and 1979. It's set in the West around the time of the struggles between cattlemen and sheep rancher, I think in Wyoming. I THINK the woman's name was Kate or Katherine; I know she had green eyes. The man she married was Jason (I think); he bought her a pair of emerald earrings and was a rancher.

The woman ran away from or got sent from Jason(?) and took up with a gambler named Jacques. I remember a scene where Jason(?) is gambling and uses the emerald earrings to bet-Jacques says he has a "mistress with green eyes" and wins the earrings.

Jason(?) and Kate(?) get back together in the end.

The only book I could find that is similar is Winter Fire by Susannah Leigh. The French man is Phillipe.
