Publisher's Summary

Anna Martin has never lived her life in accordance with what others might think. Now, hiding behind the trunk of a tree, she's beginning to truly regret that fact. Listening to her reputation being ripped apart is making her suspect that her Ma's warnings are most likely coming true. After all, what man would ever consider courting - let alone wedding - a woman who never stops to consider what consequences her actions might have?
Richard Andrews has just returned to Crooked Creek after being gone for three years. The day he'd left, he'd heard Anna screeching that she hated being a girl. He'd also seen her spirit as her Pa had picked her up, turned her across his knee and given her a spanking. Richard has secretly loved Anna for years, and has returned to claim the feisty little copper-haired girl who has grown into a beautiful woman.
He loves her spirit and her determination, and knows both will serve her well. Without her by his side, the dream he is working so hard to fulfill would be worthless. He wants the angel he knows she is - as well as the wanton lover he can detect in her flashing eyes. By the time they reached a marriage agreement, she'd know that she was loved and could always count on him to keep her in line - even if that means turning his passionate pioneer over his knee on a regular basis. Now all he has to do is convince her to trust him; convince her to become his wife.
Can Anna push aside her pride and actually turn to another for help? She remembers Mr. Andrews very well from when she was just 15 years old. She'd been devastated when he'd simply ridden away that day. Why was he back, and what did he mean when he asked her to trust him? All she really knew was that, the moment he took her hand, her heart was lost.

I Didt't Like This One

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not it was not time well-spent. There was constant beatings throughout the book. Everything was centered around the fact that women and small children get spankings no beatings for the smallest infraction. When you take a belt and give an 18 year old girl 12 lashes across her backside that is not a spanking. The other incidents described were just as bad.

If you’ve listened to books by Maggie Ryan before, how does this one compare?

I don't remember listening to any of her books. Her narration was good in this one.

Have you listened to any of Logan McAllister’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He does a good job in each listen I have heard.

Do you think His Passionate Pioneer needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. This was way too much for me.

Any additional comments?

I got this book via audiobook boom.

Skilled author weaves a story that stirs emotion

I think both the writer and narrator did a wonderful job on this book. I was really pulled into the tale and loved this author's 'voice' as well as the narrators. Maggie's writing was absolutely wonderful and Logan's voice was expressive, passionate and distinctive in differentiating the characters.

Richard and Anna were wonderfully written multi-dimensional characters and I enjoyed the romance that the author weaved.

The only thing that caused me to give a four star rating was the fact that there was some inconsistency in Richard's personality as far as punishments went. Now, I take it as a sign of a great author to bring about emotions in their readers and Maggie definitely did this--kudos! Example of one particular inconsistency: I was quite upset and stirred up when Richard - upset about his wife taking unnecessary risk to her safety by swimming naked (as she might be raped by an unscrupulous man lacking self control), decides to punish her, but then he forces her to stand naked and ALONE even more exposed and at risk on the river bank while he goes off to tell the others she's been found. He exposes her to the exact danger he intended to punish her for, which was inconsistent of his strong need to keep her safe and protected throughout the book. Things like this show the author truly had me invested in the story and character outcomes so I must say overall this is a wonderful listen! I thoroughly enjoyed it (even the moments that made me uncomfortable and squirmy) and would highly recommend it!
