Rocky Creek Texas is under siege, at least that is what old man Hank Applegate has decided.  The stage rolled into town a week and two days late, with three women on it.  Not just any women, but the Higgins sisters.  And the Colonel, as Hank likes to call the oldest sister Jenny, is on the hunt for a man.  Two men actually, she has come to Rocky Creek with the intentions of finding her two younger sisters, suitable husbands.
Needless to say Jenny's crusade, causes a stir in the little Texas town in 1881.  The women of the town disapprove, the men of the town are all for it, until they are passed over and rejected as suitable suitors for Jenny.  And the poor sheriff of the town is just trying to keep the peace, and his heart!
