Prairie Lullaby - Chapter 10
CS 19th Century Historical Western AU Fic 10/?
Apologies (again) for the delay with this chapter, things have conspired against me since I got back from holiday. Hopefully we are back on track, or thereabouts, anyway :)
In a bid to secure a more settled life for herself and her son, Emma Swan travels to Kansas as the mail-order bride of Liam Jones. Her dreams of a peaceful life are shattered when she finds herself married to his brother Killian, a man who appears to offer her anything but the quiet life she’d dreamed of. Where will this not-so-happy-ending take them?

Emma was more than a little annoyed after her encounter with Mr Jones, but the most infuriating thing about it was that, once again, she’d come away far more annoyed with herself than with the man she’d been speaking to.
And really, that seemed utterly wrong to her because if she was going to be peeved with someone, she’d rather it was Mr Jones. It made things so much clearer if she could fit him into a neat little box that was marked ‘impossible to deal with’, and then she wouldn’t have to. She could live her life and he could live his and they wouldn’t have to cross paths.
Except that she was his wife, and stuck here with him, and there was always the chance that she didn’t have quite enough rope for her purpose.
