In 1899 Philadelphia, her beloved sister and brother-in-law might not think she lives up to her surname, but Emily Bright wants independence so she heads to Montana to homestead and claim her own land. Not long after Emily selects her lot, Jake Sullivan returns home only to find a pretty eastern filly living on his acres.

Jake demands Emily give up her claim and leave. Emily refuses saying he abandoned the property so it now belongs to her. As they argue, fuss, and fight, she learns her sister is coming for a visit. Emily begs Jake to pretend to be her husband while Kate is here. Unable to say no, he agrees, but soon both wants to change their fake status into a real marriage as love blossoms between them.

The second book in the Miss Bright trilogy, MARRY ME is an entertaining western romance starring two stubborn, difficult, and ornery charcaters that readers will cherish. Emily and Jake make the tale succeed, as they are warm realistic protagonists. As Susan Kay Law did with MARRYING MISS BRIGHT, she makes the final decade of the nineteenth century in America seem so alive in her vivid story line her audience will believe in time travel.
