Impatient to meet her groom and help grow his general store, mail-order bride Eliza Cantrell sets out a week early. But train robbers steal her dowry and Axel, her groom-to-be, isn't in town when she arrives. Axel's business partner, William Stanton, has no head for business and would rather be a doctor. He lets Eliza and help around the store, where she quickly proves more adept at business than he'll ever be. And the sparks that fly between them are hard to ignore.
