I've taken my First Paragraph from "Marrying Jenna" by Charlene Raddon:
Park City, Utah, 1879
Marshall Branch McCauley leaped from his horse and looped the reins over the railing of the stairway to the family's second floor living quarters. He took the steps two at a time. No matter what, he could not be late for his wedding; eight months it had taken him, after Jenna had finally accepted his proposal, to get her to name a date.
Teaser (at 32% on my Kindle, about halfway through "Marrying Jenna"):
"Jimmy John, put your gun to Jenna's head," he ordered. Once the boy obeyed Arch called out, "That you in there, McCauley?"
