Julia Simmons had spent her entire life studying hard to become a teacher. Finally, she had her first assignment, in a small Texas town, and she was on her way. When the stagecoach dropped her off, the only man nearby kissed her, acting as if he'd been waiting for her. She couldn't seem to make him understand she wasn't his mail order bride.
When she found herself married an hour later, she was clueless as to how to handle it. How would the school board react to having a married teacher? And more importantly, how would her new husband, Tom, react when his real mail order bride arrived in town?
