The only thing that keeps the small town folk from protesting her scandalous behavior is because she's the richest woman in town. She practically owns it. She owns many businesses (big and small) and loans money to people.
In a short description you've painted a pretty striking portrait of this woman. But is the reader supposed to like her?
If the answer is yes -- well, reading this description, I'm having a hard time figuring out how to make her genuinely likeable. I could see her being sexy, but that is something different.
If the answer is no, maybe you're supposed to "love to hate" her. But then there's going to have to be something about the story that keeps the reader going. Is it just that the sex scenes are so hot and steamy? Or is there some other part of the story with some other characters who are sympathetic? Any chance this story leads to the woman getting her comeuppance?
Anyway, those are my thoughts as I read this.
