Wyoming territory, 1800s As the only doctor in the frontier town of Savage Wells, Gideon knows his prospects for a bride are limited. The womenfolk in town are either too young, too old, or already spoken for. So, being a practical man, he decides to take advantage of the matchmaking service of the day—mail-order brides—and sends away for a woman with nursing experience. When Miriam steps off the train in Savage Wells, she sees a bright future in front of her. But when the town—and Gideon—meet her, ready for a wedding, her excitement quickly turns to horror. Somehow Dr. Gideon's message had gotten turned around. He didn't want a nurse, he wanted a wife. When she refuses to marry him, she finds herself stranded in Savage Wells with some very unhappy townspeople. But Gideon is not like the other men Miriam has met. Embarrassed by the misunderstanding, he offers her a job, and the two begin an awkward—and often humorous—dance of getting to know each other as they work to care for the people of their town. Romance blossoms between the two, but when a former medical associate of Miriam's arrives in town, Gideon and the familiar faces of Savage Wells must rally around Miriam to protect her from a dangerous fate. Gideon and Miriam must choose if they are willing to risk their hearts for each other even as buried secrets are brought to light.
