Tennyson Barra, a claim jumper turned rancher, is ready to settle down with a wife and family of his own. He figures the easiest way to find the perfect woman is to let the Boomtown Mail Order Brides Company do the searching for him.
He never counted on his prospective bride being kidnapped by highwaymen on her journey out West. Or being the man sent to rescue her only to discover she never intended to follow through with their marriage contract in the first place…
With a dangerous former fiancé from Boston dogging her heels and two bandits determined to recover the bounty she so cleverly plucked from them, Callie Abbott turns out to be nothing Tennyson expected in a woman but everything he decides he wants.
He only has a few days to convince her that running from her troubles will never be half as enjoyable as facing them together — as lifelong partners.
