Eric and his wife suggest she marry Travis Marsh, who is a loner and lives outside of town. Some people say he looks like a beast. He has scars but he's not a beast, just truly shy.
The only other choice would be to work as a soiled dove, no way.
She decides to marry Travis. The only one available to marry them is the town Judge. Travis will only marry Allie if he can stand behind his outer building door, left partially open so he can repeat his vows. Eric & Caroline are their witnesses.
There so much more to this story you need to read this book.
Will Allie get Travis to love her as much she learns to love him?
Allie Jones arrived at the Colorado town late, after having to testify at a murder trial on the train. She expected to be married, only to find that her groom had married someone else came off the train that day by accident! Now Allie has NO groom, and the only other job available... is at the saloon. Fortunately, her former groom, who's also the sheriff, had a candidate in mind... Travis Martin is an outcast among town. He is heavily scarred in the face from a bad bout of chicken pox when he was young, and that turned him into an extremely shy young man who became legendary in town as the boogeyman to scare children with, with all sorts of crazy rumors. When his friend the sheriff and his wife arrived to marry her off to him, he can't accept, but he can't let her work in the saloon either. He reluctantly accepted her as his wife... But living in separate buildings, and even then he felt unworthy. But Allie is intrigued... Is he really a monster, or just a misunderstood young man?
The setup is way overboard, that basically push the trope to the point I am almost unable to take it seriously.
Even though she knows this may be a big mistake, she accepts the marriage. Her consternation increased when she has to marry in front of the judge while her husband hides behind the door. In fact, she doesn’t catch a glimpse of him for quite a few weeks. Travis is scared for her to find out how he looks because of scars received in a childhood illness. Can his kindnesses to her and others persuade her to look beyond his looks and see the real person within? And can Allison’s continued work ethic and personality bring Travis out of his shell enough to make this marriage a reality?
Even though the theme is a little trite, I thought the approach that the author gave the story saved it.
