When he still can´t seem to ditch his pursuers, he disguises himself as a mail-order bride he meets on the wagon train. Caught between gangsters who want to kill him and the crazy, uncouth family of his ´´intended´´, Robby´s only ally is a lazy sheriff who sees exactly who Robby is - and can´t resist him.

Declan Ramsay´s brother Oliver was marrying Annabelle Aiken at a fairytale castle on the banks of Loch Ness in Scotland. The bride and groom decided that Annabelle´s gay younger brother would share the best man duties with Declan. Declan had never met the kid who was to be his joint best man.
