The Alden sisters find themselves in an ugly quandary when their powerful Bostonian father dies – and each must find the courage to escape fate. Armed with nothing but their smarts, they set out on individual paths to find independence, happiness, and love.
- One Moment’s Pleasure: Drawn to San Francisco during the Gold Rush, Edith narrowly escapes working in a bordello, but she can’t escape Dutch Trahern, who seeks redemption after his misspent youth.
- One Night’s Desire: Rustlers, claim jumpers, and fire – nothing will stop Kiera from her goal: getting back to her sisters. But a murder accusation sets Marshal Evrett Quinn on her trail. She may be able to escape prison bars and eventually prove her innocence, but she can’t escape Ev’s love.
- One Day’s Loving: Mae likes her quiet life – she’s not cut out to defy convention like Edith or act on instinct like Kiera. But everything changes when Boston attorney James Collins reads her father’s will and Mae must choose between who she is and what everyone around her expects.
