Jacey Forester had pulled her sister Jeanette out of scrapes before, but this was the worst! Her flighty twin had temporarily flown the coop, leaving Jacey to fulfill her contract as a mail order brideor face jail for fraud. Masquerading as Jeanette, Jacey intended to stall the wedding until the real bride showed up, never anticipating her purely feminine reaction towards her "intended," rugged Texas lawman Logan Stryker.
The plan had been simple: get hitched to a city gal, then send her packing back East. That should have been enough to appease the town's jealous husbands and hold on to his badge. Then his "bride" stepped off the train, and the sight of her made Logan change his mind. But keeping "Jeanette" at his side would take more than a marriage agreement...it meant claiming her heart.
