Cole Richards runs a ranch on Sinker Creek. Two miners, Porker and Gib Rankin, have sluiced his ranch's creek into a muddy dribble. Cole makes the mistake of telling Bosco that if the bank in Silver City loans the miners any money, the ranch would then be in a world of trouble. Bosco, who is not too bright at times but is the best-hearted man Cole has ever known, decides to rob the bank of the miners' would-be money. While trying to stop Bosco, Cole ends up getting his leg shot by the female teller, Iris, and the duo find themselves on the run.
After blacking out, Cole revives to find himself in the small town of Oreana and being sworn in as Marshal Sidney Adler. He cannot do much about the misconception except play along, or he and Bosco (who has been sworn in as a deputy) would be suspected of holding up the bank in Silver City. Cole plans to leave town as soon as his wound allows, but who should happen to be in Oreana than the Rankin brothers?Read more ›
Daisy's parents think it is high time Daisy marries -- preferably to the wealthiest man they can finagle. Not so Daisy. To be a detective one must solve crimes and live in town quickly eliminating numerous potential husbands. Ranchers are out, as are farmers. Don't even think about miners. Nope, Daisy insists the single best husband for her is a Marshal -- so she set out to snare one. In Daisy's carefully planned universe, Marshals are tall, typically dark and, of course, handsome.
Enter Cole Richards. Cole fits the physical bill. Plus he is as sexy as any Honey Beaulieu hero and sends tingles up Daisy's spine. The only problem is Cole is wanted for bank robbery. In a series of twists and turns worthy of a Shakespeare comedy, we meet not one but three "marshals" who claim to be Sidney Adler, the Marshal who answered Daisy's call.
The most reluctant imposter is Cole. The only reason he's in Oreana is his unfortunate attempt to prevent his long time sidekick Bosco Kunkle's bungled attempt to rob a bank. Cole is shot in the botched robbery by the single person who can identify him as the outlaw -- none other than Daisy's sister Iris. And so the fun begins.
Eager to avoid a necktie party where he is the honored guest, the wounded Cole reluctantly becomes the Marshal.Read more ›
