Heroine Adele Bishop's tough but sexy personality comes alive with Luci Christian's playful rendition of Deborah Camp's historical Western romance. Adele only wants to turn the tables on the men of Whistle Stop, who order their brides like commodities, but her mail-order husband ends up being none other than Reno Gold, the man who gave her a delicious taste of his wild streak years ago. Christian's bright performance adds verve to the sparks between the two former lovers as Adele and Reno wrangle and butt heads over their impending marriage.
Adele Bishop stares in disbelief as the tall, imposing figure of Reno Gold steps off the train. Her mail-order husband is no stranger, but the man who gave her a delicious taste of his wild streak years ago - when she was too young to know how to handle him. Now he’s here, foiling her plan to turn the tables on the men of Whistle Stop, who order their brides as if they were commodities. Adele has no thought of following through on marriage, and every intention of sending the devilishly irritating Reno on his drifting way.
But Reno demands that his fiercely independent bride keep their bargain. Only when their loyalties are tested do they reclaim the passionate promise of the love that was always theirs.

Just seemed to me to slow and lack of communication between to two main characters. I never could get over the fact that Reno showed up drunk for their first meeting and then they both just kept doing crazy stuff without any reason!
