3. When does the plot take place?
4. Where does the plot take place?
Near Miles City Montana territory.
5. Why did the plot develop the way it did?
I always start with the question ‘what if?’ In this case, it was: What if a woman needed a husband, and because of an indiscretion in her past, she did not feel she could choose from any of the men she already knew?
6. How did you come up with the idea for the plot?
I read a short story about a town in 18th Century England where a condemned man was rescued off the gallows by an unmarried woman. The premise of the story was that the love of a good woman could reform a man, and I thought--what a great beginning for a romance!
About the Book
In the Montana Territory town of Dennison, the law allows a woman to save a man from hanging if she agrees to marry him. Battered and nearly unconscious with a noose around his neck, Katherine Holman decides Wes Merrick is perfect husband material. Under the terms of her father’s will, due to a youthful indiscretion, she must be married to inherit. She expects her ‘husband’ to leave as soon as the deed is in her name. She wasn’t prepared for the fact that the man she has chosen turns out to be an honorable sort who decides to stick around and hold up his end of the bargain.
