Tildie Masterson knows exactly what the future has in store for her. Like most other frontier women, she will marry a hard-working man and dedicate her life to raising children and working hard to establish her family’s place in the West. But before that day comes, she longs to have one big adventure to look back on in the hard days ahead.
Clint Washington has pulled himself up by his bootstraps to make a life for himself as a livery owner. He’s more than ready to make Tildie his wife, but not while the finances of his business are so up in the air. He needs one big deal to form the nest egg of the life that Tildie deserves.
So when an opportunity arises to both make a little extra money by traveling to Montana to bring back five thoroughbred horses for one of Laramie’s wealthiest ranchers, both Clint and Tildie jump at the chance. Adventure and profit in one easy errand! But the trouble begins right from the start, and what is supposed to be a bit of fun turns into more of an adventure than either Clint or Tildie bargained for.
