A Rough Hewn Cowboy - A woman decides to become a mail order bride but goes west under subterfuge – she already has a man lined up even though she will be supposedly matched up with a cowboy by the company who is paying her way. When she gets there, she can’t find him, so settles for an unappetizing but un-assigned man. Things do go downhill rather fast from that point onward. Delivery Refused? is a novella about a lonely California rancher who requests a mail order bride, but considers sending her back when she tells him adamantly that she doesn’t want to get married yet -- or ever.
