Liz will do anything to get away from her evil guardian, and she was prepared to disguise herself as a boy and look for work as a ranch hand. When Caroline, a stranger on the train next to her, sees through her "boy" disguise, and begs her to take her place as a mail-order bride, Liz doesn't hesitate long before saying yes. It's got to be easier than working on a ranch, and as a married woman with a new name, she'll be out of her guardian's clutches forever.
Wade Malone has been looking forward to his new bride for months, but when "Caroline" finally arrives, things don't exactly add up. For one, "Caroline" was supposed to be 25 years old; the woman who came off the train doesn't look a day above 16. He has a strong aversion to liars, particularly in a wife. But he's also a man who keeps his promises and whoever the woman is at his side, he's made a commitment.
That doesn't mean he's not going to handle his new bride very firmly indeed. Then, against all odds, Liz starts to fall for the no-nonsense rancher and his family. How will she ever keep him from finding out the complete truth about the switch?

Not a bad story beneath it all... just not executed. What a waste.... it is all wrong when women expect to stand in a corner and get their backsides blistered as punishment perceived by their husbands. Perhaps it's me but I find it entirely unacceptable! I got over the idea of a little spanking during love play used in a lot of books. (ok for some i suppose) But this is corporal punishment! It seems to be the point of the story rather than what is actually a good plot line. It wasn't even presented in any format that had meaning, it was supposed to be a general way of life. Could that be right in the way of the new west as our country grew...and I never heard of it before? Doubtful. The authors notes included that in her books "there are no explicit sex scenes but plenty of spanking" Maybe she doesn't realize that what that sounds like and what she presented are two vastly different things.
NARRATOR : Excellent! I would gladly listen to her again. She had a total lack of accents (chicago, western drawl, etc...) so I wouldn't expect her to excel where that was supposed to matter. But I never heard HER, but rather the story, as it should be. No pronunciation errors, stumbles, mouthy (wet, toothy, toungue, lips or swallow) sounds, etc... she was very good!
CREDITWORTHY? : No. Either buy it on sale or skip it is my recommendation.
HEAT FACTOR: None! zero.
I have MS and LD and make spelling and grammar mistakes, please forgive the handicap.
Through an error of comedies the wrong shows in place of Rangers mail order bride. Which means she is in her pretence to be someone forced lie to him, problem is he hates liars, and since the marriage license is dry, his solution to dealing with his wife's lies is switch on her tender young backside. Layer by layer he finds out all her secrets plus just s one other reasons to spank her, Ubtil they are madly in love with each other.
