Very Detailed, Sweet Romance

Johnny Paynter hadn't seen his brother in 5 years, but when he thought he would be hanged for a murder he did not commit he and his friend Cam headed to Texas. They planned to hide out at his brother, Mark's, until things could be straightened out in Denver.

Upon arriving in Texas Johnny finds Mark dead with two bullet holes in his chest, his house ransacked and his horses gone. When Johnny goes into town he is mistaken for Mark, so he decides to keep up the masquerade, pretending to be Mark even to the point of marrying Mark's mail-order bride, Sally. Sally knows something is wrong when "Mark" does not act like the man she has been corresponding with, but without money and in a strange town she has no other options than to go through with the wedding.

"The Outlaw Takes a Bride" is a clean, sweet romantic story.

Aimee Lilly did a good job distinguishing voices of both men and women.

A little sugary, but a nice story

This was a light, easy on the brain story. It has a light spiritual theme to it. The narrator is very good; she does quite well with the male voices. If you want something that's not very thought provoking and you don't mind the mention of God and church with a light romance thrown in, you may like this story.
