Kat Cardanne is the queen of the mail order bride scam, but she may have met her match when Detective Boone Burton takes the case!

Kat Cardanne and her little sister are pampered debutantes at a finishing school in Dallas. But when their father dies suddenly, the girls find themselves flat broke and facing ruin.

Kat travels to Colorado for their gambler father's funeral in the hope that he left them money. But when her hopes are dashed, Kat saves herself and her sister by joining up with her father's old pal, Soapy Smith, king of the con men. With Soapy's help, Kat devises a mail-order bride con that gets the money rolling in; but it also draws the attention of Boone Burton, a relentless, straight-arrow Christian detective.

Kat is attracted to Boone and in spite of the risk, she soon finds herself playing a flirtatious game of cat and mouse with the big, no-nonsense lawman. Will Boone capture Kat — or will Kat capture him? Find out in this rascally romp through the Colorado of the 1880s!
