Schoolteacher Marjorie Bascom needs a man--temporarily, that is--who is willing to be her husband so that she can realize her dream of claiming land. Unfortunately, the best prospect Marjorie can find is down-on-his-luck Leon McCoy, and Leon is a bit reluctant. Fortunately for Marjorie, however, Leon is susceptible to her feminine charms--so much so, that their wedding comes close to being the shotgun variety.
Once married, Marjorie finds that the lure of Leon's kisses is impossible to deny and Leon discovers that his long-buried dream of home and family is resurrected by the goodness of his wife. Can kisses and dreams grow into true love for this oddly-matched pair?
