I thought this was pretty good! Different than "most" historicals, this was set in Canada and the hero Zach is a Mountie about to marry Dr. Virginia Waters. Just before marrying her a train he is on is bombed and he is injured. But just before he is injured someone from behind tells him to "watch out for his pretty new bride". So being the typical male, he calls off the wedding, humiliating her (this is the 2nd time she has been dumped) all in the name of saving her from the bad guys. She doesn't take it too well and tries to leave town only to be shot at later in the day. Zach ends up having to be her guard while they catch the killers after them.
