What Woman in Her Right Mind Would be Trusting Enough to Become a Mail-Order Bride?
Having no other options Clarissa Plunkett makes a terrifying decision to become a Mail-Order Bride. She’s never been anyplace other than her boarding school in Pennsylvania. Worried and unsure she agrees to marry, Joe Kingsley of Texas.
She exits the stagecoach and to her dismay no one knows Joe Kingsley. Not having enough money for the hotel, she rents a cheap room above the saloon. When Dolly, the housekeeper on the Kavanagh ranch hears about the unfortunate girl, she insists Clarissa comes to live at the ranch.
Rancher Donnell Kavanagh loves nothing better than solving a good mystery, but Clarissa isn’t one he wants to solve. Somehow, she becomes his responsibility and he searches for Joe Kingsley. Donnell’s brothers are impatiently waiting for him become engaged to Clarissa. Donnell wants nothing to do with a wife.
Perhaps if he scrutinizes her past, he can prove she isn’t the sweet, proper woman she seems to be.
