The Country Doctor's Bride by Anita Philmar
Historical Western Erotica
With no ties to
Dixy secures a ride to the next town on her way out of the state. The driver,
Tobias Poe offers to let her rest. While she’s in the back, he is shot.
Rushing to save him, she arrives in Naked Bluff,
The town’s doctor, Nathaniel Murphy can’t save him, but he can save her?
Penniless, alone, and now a murder suspect, Dixy has no alternative but to accept his help.
Can this couple build a future together or will someone silence her before she can identify the murder?
“Good, now you just take it easy, and in no time, we’ll be in town.” His words drifted over her head.
The warm haven created from being out of the wind and under the heavy cotton tarp allowed her muscles to relax. Her mind darted off as to the problems ahead. Where would she sleep tonight?
She didn’t have any money and had only agreed to travel to Naked Bluff with Tobias because Madeline Cowden had vouched for him. Still, what choice did Dixy have? If she had any hope of getting back to
, she had to count on the help of strangers.
Fighting not to worry, she forced herself to breathe deeply and clear her mind of all thoughts. Slowly, the clicked-clank of the wheels and the steady rocking lured her to sleep.
What seemed like only a few minutes later, Dixy heard voices and noticed they weren’t moving. Had they arrived in town?
Disoriented, she listened to a rough cadence of male voice. His loud accusing tone shoved back the lure of continuing snooze. She shifted and squinted up to where Tobias still sat on the wagon’s bench.
“Now, now, there’s no cause for you to get upset. I have everything under control,” Tobias assured the other man.
“So do I,” the stranger yelled.
Pop, pop, pop.
Dixy froze. Gunfire wasn’t something she was prepared to deal with.
Holding her breath, she silently wondered, what the hell was going on?
Several long seconds ticked by, then the distinct sound of horse’s hooves striking the wet ground sang through the silence. Plop, plop, plop, the noise indicated the man had ridden away.
“Tobias, what was that...”
A body crumbled on top of her. Shocked by the sudden attack, Dixy scrambled to one side and sat up to stare into Tobias’ pain-filled eyes. His face a pale ashen color, his chest covered in blood.
“My God, Tobias,” Dixy exclaimed and scurried to give him room to lie down on the hard wooden planks. “You’ve been shot.”
