Riley Butler has it all, or so she thinks. When her car swerves into oncoming traffic, she makes a desperate wish for a second chance at life. Dropped in the middle of a grassy field dressed in a chic business suit and sexy high heels, she looks distinctly out of place compared to her surroundings. Wooden buildings, saddled horses and strange stares all greet her as she stumbles her way into Dallas, 1845. She meets a magical woman named Eve who pushes Riley out the front door quite literally and into a new life as a mail order bride.
Riley’s first impression of John is quite daunting. He is unkempt, unshaven and unappealing at first glance. But underneath it all, she sees a tenderness in him that calls to her soul. She feels herself drawn to his frontier life and what being married to him could bring her. Can she give up modern gadgets and conveniences in order to have a lifetime of love?
