Unfinished-Legend by Jude Deveraux
Wow, what a sucky Jude Deveraux book.
I read about 80 pages in, then just couldn't stand the stupidity anymore.
Story starts with the heroine, Kady, getting ready for her wedding with her dream love Gregory. But she happens to buy an old flour tin that has a Victorian Wedding dress and ALL the extras (which fit her buxom 5'2" frame perfect, natch), she puts it on and is transported in time 100 years to Colorado. There she meets the son of the dresses owner Cole Jordan-who is about to be hung.
She saves Cole from three desperados (yeah, right), STANDS on Cole's horse to remove the hangman's noose (yeah, sure), then proceeds to cook him up a batch of beef jerky/wild mustard broth to set him to rights-ALL within an hour or so of being transported back in time! Talk about your Wonder Woman!
It gets worse, but when Cole wakes up and states to this complete stranger in his mom's old wedding dress who also happens to have a sepia print of him as a child "you need to marry me so I can protect you"-I just quit in disgust.
Don't waste your time on this one.
