"A Bride Most Begrudging." A British lady is taken to the colonies against her will as a "tobacco bride." The colonial farmer who "wins" her realizes he has gotten more than he bargained for in the ensuing battle of wills.
"Courting Trouble." In 1890s Texas, being a single woman at 30 meant you were practically a spinster. Tired of leaving it up to providence, Essie takes matters into her own hands, casting her sights on the town's remaining bachelors and widowers. Surely with one of them she can find a match made in heaven, even if shes decides to leave God out of it.
"Deep in the Heart of Trouble." Essie Spreckelmeyer is the last woman anyone in Corsicana, Texas, expected to see with a man on her arm. Independent and outspoken, she's known more for riding bicycles in outrageous bloomers than for catching a man's eye.

This was 3 stories in one. All the stories were highly entertaining. Deeanne Gist writes story that rate high on twists and unexepected turns. The romance was realistic and was a welcome addition although at times very redundant (kissing every 2 pages, especially in the last story of the book).

I enjoyed the very first story in this book the most of which i understand was the debut novel for Gist. That story was very well written and engaging.
