See where it all began...

Cole Pierce has been a bad, bad boy.
When he rode into Sweetwater to fetch his friend's mail-order bride, he had no idea just how hot the New Mexico town was going to get.
Grace Byron’s plan is simple enough—travel from
Savannah to Sweetwater, New Mexico Territory, as a mail-order bride and thus
preserve the true identity of the man she is going to meet, a man she holds
very dear. But she’s reckoned to do so without the twists that Fate is
planning. When her stage is held up, the robbers mistakenly think she’s part of
their booty, but soon find this Georgia beauty is really a spitting hellcat,
one who knows how to use a gun. She wounds one man and kills another before
she’s hit on the head.

When Cole Pierce mounts his horse and heads to
town, his plan is simple enough—to meet the stage and bring Grace Byron back to
marry his ailing friend, but without the danger of a stage holdup. After he
helps rescue the passengers, he certainly never anticipates having two
Graces to choose from: one unconscious, and another with amnesia. Cole decides
the one who’s still unconscious, a matronly woman, must be his friend’s
mail-order bride, and the firebrand with a flame of red-gold hair has to be the
new saloon girl.

She simply can’t be his friend’s promised bride.
Because from the moment Cole looks into her green eyes, he wants her more than
he’s ever wanted a woman. And he knows he’s going to marry her, even if he has
to use every trick he knows to convince her of why she should marry him.
