(From the publisher):
When news arrived of trouble back in Texas, Holt McKettrick left his mail-order bride on the spot. But that's how it had always been for Holt--trying to do the right thing inevitably got somebody mad at him. He just prayed he'd be in time to keep his best friend from the gallows and save the man who'd raised him as a son. The arduous trip from Arizona to San Antonio would be rife with rustlers and thieves--both of which Holt could easily handle. But nothing in his checkered past could have prepared him for a woman like Lorelei Fellows.
Setting fire to her wedding dress in the town square probably wasn't the best way for Lorelei to make he point, but sh was sick of men--as far as she was concered, they were nothing but cheats and liars. And why should she be in such a hurry to marry, anyway? All she wanted was to stake her claim on her own little piece of Texas. And with Holt McKettrick as her new neighbor, she might be able to do just that. The man was a straight shooter with a strong will, a steady aim and a hungry heart. Before long, the sparks are flying...and two people determined never to believe in love can't believe they've gone without it this long
