Left at the Altar

Margaret Brownley

In the wild and untamed West, time is set by the local jeweler...but Two-Time Texas has two: two feuding jewelers and two wildly conflicting time zones. Meg Lockwood's marriage was supposed to unite the families and finally bring peace. But when she's left at the altar by her no-good fiance, Meg's dreams of dragging her quarrelsome neighbors into a ceasefire are dashed. Hired to defend the groom against a breach of promise lawsuit, Grant Garrison quickly realizes that the only thing worse than small-town trouble is falling for the jilted bride. But there's something about Meg's sweet smile and determined grit that draws him in...even as the whole crazy town seems set on keeping them apart.

Publisher Description

In the Wild West, time is set by the local jeweler. Unfortunately, the town has two, and Two-Time, Texas, runs an hour early or late depending on which of the opinionated townsfolk you ask. Meg Lockwood's marriage was supposed to end this longstanding feud and bring the two quarreling families together. That's why, when she's left at the altar, the town's last chance for peace seems all but gone. Handsome lawyer Grant Garrison is hired to defend the groom against a breach-of-promise lawsuit, and the only thing worse than sinking into small-town trouble is falling for the jilted bride. But when the bridegroom decides to marry Meg after all, Meg will have to decide if Grant is truly the best man for her.
