Rebecca is the last hope her mother and sisters have at keeping their home and getting enough to eat. All she has to do is marry the rich man who sent for her to be his bride. While traveling to meet him, her train is robbed, and she finds her heart fluttering for the dangerous bandit with stunning eyes. Now Rebecca is left wondering if the man she was sent to marry will make her heart dance like the dangerous rogue had.
Christian has been through a dozen potential brides before he meets Rebecca. She is everything he wants - full, vivacious, and beautiful, with a passion for life that can't be surpassed. His only problem is that she wants nothing to do with him. After a rough start, Christian doesn't know if he will ever be able to gain the wild woman's trust and love. With a secret so large that it could destroy both their lives, will his wild new bride stay by his side, or is she impossible to tame?
I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review. The narrator kept me laughing because the way she did the voices you could tell she was straining to make the accent and depth. The story overall was good. The way it started was cheesy but you know when men get caught looking at a woman's breast they always try to make it the woman's fault that they were doing that. I liked how Rebecca stood up for herself even when she knew that it could mean she would be sent back home.

This is set in a historical setting. The typical historical romance; the only avenue to keep her families from ruin was to become a mail order bride. Rebecca meets Christian at his huge estate with plenty of servants. She wonders how or if she will be able to do all she's expected, (or if even if she wants to after one conversation) or to fulfill her wifely duty.
An unexpected twist into fantasy had me lose interest. It IS properly categorized. However, the short summary I read wasn't long enough to include it.

Personally I am unused to reading about horse shifters which made this book interesting. Especially because it was set in a historical context. There is a lot to take in, though the story itself is very short. As it comes to a conclusion there is a sense of the unrealistic, though that is explained satisfactorily. Overall it is ok, especially If you are looking for something short and unusual.

Olivia Lush has done an excellent job narrating. The voices used are consistent with the characters, her emotions made for an excellent listen
