Eileen Sewell sparks plenty of gossip by spiteful matrons and their horse-faced daughters that she’d find herself alone due to her picky ways. Of course, she didn’t believe them. Then again, she also didn’t expect to be a mail order bride either. It wasn’t easy snagging a husband who hadn’t heard about her willful nature. Eileen finally gave up hope of finding love, and decided to settle for whatever she’d find out west. If that wasn’t lowering enough, she’d just witnessed the first train robbery. Unfortunately, the outlaws saw her too. Enter Marshal Colt Sheppard, who excels at extracting information from reticent witnesses. His crooked smile and broad shoulders shouldn’t charm her. She’d played this game before, only she never had a worthy adversary. Talk about bad timing.
If she decided to tell all to the incredibly handsome marshal, he’d hightail it out of there, leaving her alone. With her luck, the bandits would be waiting for her at the next stop. As long as he accompanied her, she would be safe. Colt stooped to pick up a dropped handkerchief for Doreen, giving Eileen a chance to observe his long back and tight rear. No matter how stubborn he could be, he certainly gave a woman a pleasant eyeful. As if feeling her eyes on him, Colt looked over his shoulder, catching her in the act. The man had the audacity to wink. Oh, he knew. Probably plenty of women, some not as genteel as she, told him in honeyed tones how handsome he was, or what beautiful eyes he had, or how his smile lit up his entire face. Eileen slapped her hand against her face. She noticed too much about the marshal for an engaged female.
Colt cocked one eyebrow and asked, “Fly bothering you?”
The words drew her eyes to the very nice lips she wouldn’t mind feeling on hers again—for testing purposes—to see if she experienced the same reaction a second time. Maybe she just needed to be married. Mother always warned her against allowing a man a kiss. Men must have some magical power to sway a woman to their way of thinking with a kiss.

Morgan as a child had to suffer through movies with clueless heroines rescued by smart men. Her mother dutifully read her stories where princesses waited for princes to jumpstart their lives. There were no proactive female role models in the media at that time, with the exception of Wonder Woman. It is for this reason, and that it is fun, Morgan writes about strong women going after what they want.
