Georgiana Gregson is tired of living in Richmond, Virginia. Her older sister Cynthia has managed to make a decent match with James, but their family has never had much to offer to a potential groom. Now that their parents are gone, nineteen-year-old Georgiana finds that she has few prospects other than James’s cousin Harold, who is definitely not her type.
When she discovers that a local mail order bride agency is arranging for a trip to Nevada for any women seeking husbands in the west, she immediately signs up. She dreams of a place where she can be free from the bounds of society, where she can start over and not be stuck within the confines of a drawing room. But Virginia City isn’t quite what she was expecting, and Georgiana’s not sure she can handle life in the west even with the assistance of the handsome Justin O’Hare.
