She barely escapes death…
He is angry when a mail-order bride jilts him…
They must defend themselves against mysterious assailants.
Theodosia “Theo” Jordan has lived with the harsh aunt and uncle who are her guardians since her parents’ death five years ago. In three weeks she will turn twenty-one and inherit the estate now controlled by her uncle. When she overhears her aunt and uncle planning her death, she immediately escapes Atlanta by becoming a proxy bride and heading for a small town in Texas.
Houston Kingsley yearns for a happy family like his brother has. Being cheated by a fraudulent mail-order bride who jilts him and keeps the money he sent her discourages him. Is he destined to live alone? His brother convinces him to try for a proxy bride. The process sounds simple enough—if he can scrape up the cash for a second fare and travel expenses.
But unknown forces create danger for Theo and Houston. Can they discover and defeat the guilty to achieve the happy home each desires?
