Having a close resemblance to Queen Elizabeth I, and claiming descendance, served Priscilla well when as a girl she was teased mercilessly about her carrot-red hair and freckled white skin, so on arriving in Cheyenne, Wyoming, when she implies as much to avoid a humiliating situation, she suddenly finds herself sought after by the matriarchs of Cheyenne's British cattle barons. But Priscilla did not come west to be sucked into British society. She came on a wagon train with homesteaders to start a newspaper addressing the needs of women, which means facing up to the powerful Wyoming Stock Grower's Association and cattle barons like Lord Whittington who want every homesteader run out of the territory. But Adam Whittington has his own means of handling the troublesome spinster who's stirring up a cauldron with her rabble-rousing newspaper. What Adam doesn't count on is falling in love with the redheaded firebrand who's alienating every cattleman in the area while also threatening her own life.
