Publisher's Summary

Austin Barrington is nervous - but hopeful - when his mail order bride, Georgia Langley, steps off the train. From the few letters they've exchanged, it seems they have a lot of the same ideals and goals. He is concerned that an educated young lady from Boston might be scared, bored - or both - living on a ranch in Wyoming, but he hopes she will be able to adjust and that they will make a good couple. In time, he plans to teach her to ride a horse and shoot a gun, but for now, he will keep a close eye on her to keep her safe.

It soon becomes clear that what he expected from his new bride and what he has received are two very different things. Within just three days of her arrival, Georgia leaves the ranch on her own and goes looking for employment - after finding out that husbands in Laramie in 1890 commonly correct their wives' bad behavior with a trip over their knee.

Austin and Georgia may have different views on the concept of domestic discipline, but they are a good match in many other ways. Follow their story in this action-packed adventure, as they find themselves in the center of a mysterious and dangerous situation.

    "So well done"

    D.C Cole has reached new heights in...characterization? Embodying characters? I don't even know what to call it. I was really impressed with all of the different characters and the distinctness of even the side characters in his performance. He just seems to become each character in a way I don't see often. Davina Porter is like the only narrator I can think of off the top of my head. Most have a style, even a style I may really like. But, DC is so fluid in becoming different people not just performing a character. It's uncanny.

    So Georgia should have turned around and went right back where she came from when Austin first took her back to town? Yes, but then the story would have been over. I wish that the story would have stuck with her either being strong and independent or...not. The characters were interesting.This story had great potential. And, what DC Cole did with it was exceptional.

    "What A Nice Surprise"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I most certainly would, I`m a big fan of D.C Cole`s work and once again he was fantastic. He did such a great job with all the characters in story, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it at much as I did. D.C is a master at bringing books to life and bringing you along for the ride.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Austin, he made me like him even when I didn't agree with all his actions. In fact I enjoyed all of the characters in this book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Austin went to collected Georgia from the sheriffs office, it was touching and sweet if not a little funny


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Protect and Love Her.... even if she is a handful. LOL


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed this so very much, can`t wait to find another of D.C Cole`s audiobooks, and this book was so beautifully written. It was a perfect match, congratulations to you both.
