"A volatile feud. Opal Speck knows good and well that the longstanding feud between her family and the Grogans makes for volatile relations. So when Adam Grogan--the man who saved her life two years ago--comes chasing after a stray cow on Speck property, there's no way her family will forgive him for tresspassin'. A desperate declaration. Determined to keep bloodshed at bay, Opal blurts out the one declaration she knows will stop them in their tracks: Adam's the father of her unborn child! A gunpoint decision. Adam has two choices: deny the involvement with Opal and die at the hands of her family, or accept the slur to his name and marry a gal who's trying to pass off another man's child as his! Can a gunshot wedding be the way God will end the hatred between these two feuding families? Or will its repercussions fuel an already blazing animosity?"--p.  of cover.
To prevent her brothers from shooting Adam Grogan as retribution in a longstanding feud between their families, Opal lies about being pregnant with his child, but they face more than they bargained for after their shotgun wedding.
