In the West there's only two kinds of women--the wives, mothers, daughters and the good-time girls. It is said that Pearl Belladonna could show a man the best time ever, but Sean O'Ryan hasn't come to the gold fields looking for a floozy. He wants gold to buy a ranch, and a virtuous woman to make a wife. The sensual barroom singer might tempt his body and tease his mind, but she isn't for him. From her red curls to her assumed name, nothing about her seems real until a glimpse into her heart convinces Sean that the lady is indeed a pearl beyond price.
