Colorado Territory, 1872: It was about as rough and ready as the men who left civization behind and driven by a desire for land gold and a new life. Boulder Gap: It was a false fronted one street town where the only way a fellow could find a decent woman was to send away for her. When Tanzy first caught sight of the man she'd come west to marry, he was galloping after a gang of bandits, peppering their worthless hides with buckshot. Russ Tibbolt was a far cry from the safe, respectable husband she'd expected when she agreed to become a mail order bride.
For one thing he had killed a man 10 years before and he was much too compelling for any woman's peace of mind. With his cobalt blue eyes looking down into hers and his powerful body doing its magic, how could she hope to win the battle of wills between them or keep her heart intact. For beneath the onslaught of Russ's kisses she was very far from being a reluctant bride.
