Actor Christine Williams’s warm and passionate interpretation of Taming the Wild Man, by romance novelist Deborah Camp, creates an intimate experience for the listener. Intrepid heroine Jane Litton enters the verdant wilderness landscape of the Smoky Mountains in search of her mysterious ex-brother-in-law, the handsome Nicholas Thunderheart. Years earlier, Nicholas, a former ethical investor described as "a cross between Tarzan and Tonto", abandoned his daughter, retreating to a life of solitude in the lush forest. Jane is determined to reunite father and child, but finds herself succumbing to her primitive desires.
Nicholas Thunderheart moved though the steamy forest with the strength of a jungle cat. Primal...predatory. Years ago, scandal drove him to isolation in the Smoky Mountains. But now that solitude is shattered - by a woman. Jane Litton knew him as the public did: as a coward. But Nicholas in the flesh is nothing like she’d expected. Nor was her fiery reaction to him. Nicholas had always been a mystery, but Jane must unlock his secrets - and bring him home to a daughter he’d never known.

Love to read and I am really enjoying audible. Fantasy and sci fi are my faves but I also enjoy period novels and historical fiction.
This story revolves around a reclusive man who is living alone in the woods near Asheville nc as a naturalist. His former sister in law arrives to confront him as to why he hasn't been involved with his daughters life. Secrets are revealed and the two feel chemistry towards each other. The visit was done without the knowledge of her sister, his ex wife. The fur flies when she finds out
First, there is very very little heat to this story. Even the sex scenes are tepid. The chemistry they claim to share doesn't come across at all.
He has very good reasons for his feelings and actions and her reactions are kind of weird for her lack of compassion. She also continues to butt her way throughout the story into places that are totally not her business. I kind of wanted to smack her
The narration is just boring. The male voices are poorly done and often I couldn't tell she was even doing a male voice
This was a free listen/read as kindle unlimited user and it was ok for free but that's it
