Duncan McKenzie left the ranch 10 years ago, desperate to escape temptation in the form of a budding young lady too innocent to claim for his own. But Catherine's frightened father summons him home. The ranch is under attack and the old man's stubborn daughter refuses to seek help. Duncan left a sweet young girl behind a decade ago. He returns to a defiant siren, a woman whose heart is as wild as the land she would sacrifice her life to protect. When Catherine's father coerces her into marrying Duncan, the fire in her eyes spells trouble, but it's the kind of trouble Duncan has no desire to resist. Marriage is the only way he can protect her. Especially when Duncan's own past comes calling in the form of one extremely dangerous and vengeful outlaw, Catherine's cowardly enemies want the ranch badly enough to kill for it, and his reluctant bride is very much in their way.

Katherine and Dunkin?
Another wonderful book and story within its pages.
The characters were incredible, especially the good ones. To be fair even the bad ones were good at what they did bad.
I have said it before and I say it again, this narrator is very good, she makes the stories come alive.
I'm ready to listen to Audiobook 2 of this series and I highly recommend that you get this first Audiobook and the ones that follow it.

Longest. Book. Ever
If the narrator wasn’t as good as she was, I don’t know if I would have made it through true book.
This book is a great lesson of the importance of exposition. Because I had no idea what was going on at the beginning of the story, and I didn’t get any of who these characters were, I never really cared about them. Even a small scene of What’s His Name riding into town to the shock of Cat at the beginning would have done more to set up the tension . Even all through the many, many, MANY details and events, I still didn’t feel like I sympathized with the characters, particularly Cat. She is seriously unlikeable. I know it’s supposed to be a retelling of Taming if the Shrew, but c’mon. She wasn’t a shrew. She was downright bitchy for no good reason. And who was the villain? Morgan or Walker? I was about halfway through before I realized they were two different people.
This story was too long. And I’ve read Gone With the Wind. Just when you’re ready for the story to end, some skanky ex pops up and needs rescuing. What?! Just end already! The sex scenes weren’t bad, and the writing overall wasn’t bad, except for some seriously ridiculous lines (“a kiss meant to hurt” WTF?!) and I think, with some editing, it would be a decent story. Would I read something else by this author? Maybe.
