Widowed at a young age, Molly is introduced to widower, Derek, by her fun-loving cousin, Philip. Their courtship by mail results in matrimony – on the very day they meet each other face to face for the first time!
Molly adores her new husband and wants nothing more than to make him happy. But sometimes, his rules just get in her way. He wouldn’t really take her in hand, would he? He’s just joking, teasing her. Right?
He’d been right about the rustlers, though. After a very tough night, they were caught, and now, surely, Derek could loosen up those rules. Besides, what he never finds out won’t hurt, will it?
