Mail Order Marshall
When Claire Sullivan’s parents are killed in a stagecoach hold up she is left as the only heir to their successful horse ranch.
The ranch is in Texas and Claire has been informed she is in danger of losing it if she doesn’t marry, as a woman the law won’t recognise her ownership.
Claire hates the thought of marriage and family thanks to her philandering father; but to keep the ranch that she loves she knows she has no other choice but to marry.
She refuses to marry anyone from her ranch, or in town, so her neighbour suggests she write to a mail order bride agency. Claire writes to an agency in Forbes and explains her situation.
Peter Reynolds has just quit the Rangers to set himself up on a ranch. When his boss explains Claire’s situation he jumps at the chance to partly own an already established and successful horse ranch even it does involve marriage. Marriage is the last thing Peter wants after the betrayal he suffered but one of convenience in exchange for a ranch seems like a good offer.
