great book- first i've read of hers, terrific storyline, kept me interested from start to finish!!!

from back of book (because it drives me nuts when it's not listed!! :->)

shooting a bandit was reporter hallie wainwright's introduction to the wild west, where she'd traveled with a bevy of mail-order brides. but it was the more intimate "hello" in the arms of cooper dewitt that sent her heart racing- and made it all the more difficult for her to tell the brawny plainsman that she wasn't the woman he'd sent for. . .

when she jumped from the stage, shining with true grit and spewing tall tales, cooper dewitt thought he just might have struck gold. raised with the sioux, cooper needed a wife who could brave the frontier and corral his restless heart. the problem was, his would-be bride had no intention of marrying him!

In order to prove that she can be just a good newspaper journalist as her brothers, Hallie Wainwright embarks on a long trip to the Dakotas with three other mail-order brides. She wants to interview the women when they arrive, marry and start their lives in a new environment.

Theres only one small problem: Hallie accepted the ticket of one of the (originally 4) brides and promised to return the other money to man who arranged for her passage. On the last leg, however, the stage is robbed and all money and jewelry were taken from the passengers.

When the stagecoach finally arrives, Cooper DeWitt finds that his bride did not come; a wealthy journalist took her place and has no intention of marrying him. However, Hallie has no money and no way to return home; DeWitt offers to hire her to straighten up his business ledgers and teach his nephew to read and write.

Hallie is thunder-struck when the Sioux Last Horse arrives and Cooper introduces him as his brother. Last Horse wants to buy (or trade for) Hallie and she is horrified!

Although he develops a strong attraction for Hallie, Cooper realizes that she cannot survive the difficult life and circumstances in the Dakotas. However, Hallie constantly amazes him with her ability to adapt and learn.

Ive given a small part of the plotline in this wonderful book; the characters are well-defined and very likeable. Once started, I couldnt put the story aside. The main characters grow and learn from their interactions.
