A SPINSTER...A BOOTLEGGER... AN UNEXPECTED CHANCE AT LOVE.
Leaving the safety of her old life, Prudence Walker rides the Bride Train west to the end of the line--her last chance at matrimony. She's too plain to inspire desire. Nor does she expect to find love. However, she does have her standards.
Arch Childers longs to put down roots, only he's too busy managing his family's illegal whiskey business to pursue his dreams. His troublemaking brothers, deciding he needs help, kidnap a spinster lady and present her, bound and gagged, as his bride. Knowing her reputation will be tainted just by association with him, he does the only honorable thing and offers marriage.
Prudence isn't immune to the scoundrel's charm, but a conniving bootlegger is the last man on earth she would marry. That is, until Arch sacrifices his freedom to save her.
