A Novella by

Can a mistaken identity lead to love?

When Matthew Canton's mail-order bride is kidnapped from her wagon train, he doesn't hesitate to rescue her. But he didn't expect to have to bargain for her--and he certainly didn't expect her to be someone entirely different.

Sophia Zane needed a quiet, quick way out of Kansas City with the money she inherited. Opting to join a wagon train headed west, she doesn't correct the wagon master when he assumes she's someone else. It's safer to leave under a different name, and her way is now already paid.

When outlaws kidnap Sophia from the wagon train, she invents a wealthy groom to persuade them to keep her alive. She never thought her fabricated fiancé would find her--much less believe she's actually the woman whose name she's taken on.

Traveling across the desert together, it doesn't take Matthew long to realize the woman beside him isn't the one he sent for, yet he finds himself attracted to her bravery, generosity, and quick-thinking nature. When they return to town and Sophia's reputation is in question, Matthew proposes a quick marriage. But can Sophia believe Matthew has truly forgiven her for her deception? Will their blossoming love survive the danger that's followed them to Crest Stone?
