It's Your Misfortune and None of My Own
Pepper Paige is sick and tired of her life. Sick of the fighting and emptiness that surround her as a dance-hall girl - and tired of fearing Jordan Beckett, a violent patron who has turned his attentions on her. Pepper gets her chance to escape when a woman injured in a stagecoach wreck dies in her room. Before she dies, the stranger - a refined, educated Christian - informs Pepper that she was on her way west to marry a rancher she knew only through his letters. Pepper decides to assume Suzanne's identity and get a fresh start in life. But unknown to Pepper, her fiance is not really Zach, the Christian man who'd been corresponding with Suzanne. Zach has been killed by Indians, and a prison escapee named Tap Andrews has decide to pass himself off as the rancher. What happens when the pair meet? Will they end their charade and embrace the truth aout each other's past, as well as the truth of God's love for them? Who will be left standing when Jordan tracks down Tap and finds out that he is about to marry Pepper?
