Rachel Landers went west to marry a man she'd been writing to. She was wearing her wedding dress, prepared to marry right away. When Buck Daggett introduced himself as Hershel Newton's friend and that he could take her up the mountain, Rachel was surprised. Would he also stand in for Hershel as a proxy?
Once Buck agreed to take her and stand in for Hershel's wedding by proxy, they were off to climb the mountain. Buck outfitted her in riding clothes and they began the journey. Rachel never figured on outlaws and Indians, but they were stopped by both. The wedding went on without a hitch and they continued up the mountain. At one point Rachel nearly fell from a cliff, if it hadn't been for Buck's quick thinking it might have been the end.
But the one thing she hadn't planned on was liking Buck so much. And when he kissed her, she could do nothing but respond.
Now if she could just muster up some feelings for the man she just married she'd be alright.
Rachel was in for a lot of surprises along the way, and the biggest one was Hershel himself. But Buck fully intended to deliver Hershel's Bride!
