Josie Cooper needs money to get out of town...quick. That is why she decided to pick the pocket of a gunslinger who just won a poker pot. But when Ethan Savage catches her, he gives her an ultimatum: Go to jail or travel to England as his wife for six months in order for him to get his inheritance. After that they will get an annulment and he will pay her handsomely. Josie jumped at the chance--even though she was already married--and running away from her outlaw husband who wants to kill her.
The first half of this historical romance moves very slow. I was ready to start skimming by the time Josie and Ethan arrived in England. The story did pick up at that point but I never really felt like Josie and Ethan were in love. It just felt flat to me. My rating: 3 Stars.
