Publisher's Summary

When a pretty spitfire who's down on her luck clashes with a stubborn man in search of a wife, sparks must turn to flames....

A year after the Civil War, courageous former Union nurse Lydia McQuire was gamely scraping out an honest living. But now, as she said yes to marrying a stranger, her knees gave way with fear. Mr. Devon Quade had seemed polite and handsome when she answered his ad for a wife. Only after Lydia had arrived in Washington territory did she learn that her bridegroom wasn't to be sweet Devon Quade, but his older brother Brigham, a widower with strapping shoulders, hands as strong as steel, and an arrogant belief that he was lord and master of his lumber empire, the town of Quade's Harbor, and the woman he married. Lydia's dislike of him was instantaneous...yet Brigham was awakening in her a white-hot passion, and a firm resolve: before she would share his bed, he would have to surrender himself, heart and soul, to love....

Loved the female lead of this book

I don't often write reviews, but I wanted to write one for Yankee Wife. I absolutely loved this book, and I went through a short "grief" period when it was over because this book and it's characters really drew me in. This is such a special story about a strong female lead who is passionate, caring, open, loving, and adventurous. She is a daughter, a friend, a nurse, and lover. This is a great story and I wish there were even more tales about this Wyoming territory town and adventures there. I know there are two more books in this series but from reading their descriptions it seems like their settings are elsewhere. Darnit.

good

I enjoyed listening to Pilar Witherspoon's performances of the different characters of this story. The story itself was good but loonng. But with that said, I see there's another audiobook in this series that isn't mentioned, " Taming Charlotte". Check it out. Enjoy! 😄
