Subject: Historical, three weddings, title "Cowboy"? HELP!

Looking for a historical romance I'd read a few years ago (mid-late 1990's or early 2K's) that *may* have "Cowboy" in the title.  I had run across a large-print edition, if that matters.  But onto the actual plot.  The male protagonist is tangled up in dealings that may be somewhat shady (he might be a spy?) and then runs into the heroine.  To continue his charade, he "marries" her in a ceremony that he doesn't intend to be "real."  Well, subsequently, of course the two fall in love and while they're hiding out with a wagon train the traveling minister "marries" them again (yet again only supposed to be half-real) and *finally,* when the young woman gets back to her hometown and realizes she's *really* in love with the hero, they "marry" for real (although considering the bride's "delicate condition" at the time I get the feeling her family may have desired she do so, anyway... ;) LOL)
"Samantha & the Cowboy"

sounds like a fair match, but I don't want to commit to ordering a book if I'm not certain.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Fondest Regards,

Samantha and the Cowboy was cute but that's not the book you're thinking of.

Hmmmm, could be, but I seem to remember "cowboy" in the title.  Did that one come in a large-print edition., 'cause I remember the cover.

I don't remember any marriages in The Outlaw and the Lady, I don't think that's it.

Well I put in an Interlibrary Loan request for "Outlaw...", so that'll finally answer the question of whether that's the book or not.
I *CERTAINLY* hope it is, but I shouldn't get my hopes up.  I *KNOW* the copy of the book I read was a large-print edition, if that helps?
