Audrey looked at the wisp of a woman in her brother’s clutches, wondering if she might just blow away like tumbleweed in a dust storm. “Why you’re no bigger than a twig,” she said with a condescending smile. 

"Yeah, but I can fight like the trunk of a redwood tree!" 

Audrey’s gaze traveled to the guns resting on Violet’s narrow hips. Her face curled up. “Why, you’ve got guns strapped to your hips like a man!” 
Violet gritted her teeth and forced a smile, resting a hand on one of the guns and held up the Bible she had tucked under her other arm. “I figured between the Good Book and the pistols, anyone wanting to mess with me was gonna meet their maker one way or the other!” 
Magnolia is on the run from her pa, her betrothed, and the end of a rope, but the only witness to her innocence is a dead man. 
When she lands in Silver City by chance circumstances, will all three catch up to her, or will the new sheriff believe her story, even though she's already told him the biggest lie a woman could tell a man?
Scarlet sat in the dirt and dangled her legs over the edge of the grave. “What do we got to show for this robbery? Seven dollars, a few pieces of jewelry, a satchel full of mail, and another dead man! When do you say to yourself that enough is enough? Don’t you want more out of this life than stealin’ and shootin'? I do.” 
Her brother dumped out the contents of the mailbag. “I bet lots of these letters are full of money. People send money to their families all the time.” 
He tore open one of the letters, read a few lines, and then tossed it at his sister. “This one is for you! You want out so bad? Go be a mail order bride. That poor sap is lookin’ to get hitched. Maybe that’s the life for ya—marryin’ a stranger instead of staying with yer family.”
Bride Blackmail: 
Jasmine is ready to become a mail order bride until she finds herself being blackmailed by a dead man.

Bride be a Lady:
"It ain't easy bein' a man when you're a woman!"
