Tessa Bowers grew up in Liberty, Montana but never knew of the well hidden and very strict rules for married women. If she had, she might not have flirted and set her sights on the wealthy rancher, Cole Bridger.
Cole wasn't a man controlled by anyone, let alone the little spitfire trying to lure him to the alter. He decided who he married. He decided when. So when Tessa shows up for church one Sunday, she enters as Miss Bowers and leaves as Mrs. Bridger.
Right from the start, Cole dictates his expectations of Tessa, who quickly realizes married life is not as she imagined. Willful and disobedient, she fights against the humiliating and shameful things he demands. With the help of the town doctor, Cole begins to train Tessa to be the proper wife. It is a difficult task, but he'd waited years to tame her - mind, body and soul.

Nothing Tame About This Story
If I were to listen to this story again it would be in order to listen to the whole series from start to finish. I do think that I might enjoy the series better if I was reading it.
Have not listened to either of these narrators before. I would love to listen to other books that have Ms. Rush as a narrator. But I'm on the fence about Mr. Beroff. In this book he reminded me of my brother which made listening to Taming Tessa a little awkward. I'd have to listen to a sample to see if my mind can be changed.
There was a point where Tessa was sorry for the way that she treated a woman who was trying to be nothing but kind. But was not happy in the way her husband treated her. It makes the scene erotic but for me it ruined the scene.
I loved this story a little more than Claiming Catherine. This one was still erotic but I felt more of a connection between the characters. There is a continued theme of having to use an aphrodisiac in order to have sex. It makes me wonder what type of connection Tessa and Cole would have had without it. Do the men have so little faith in their sexual prowess that they need to trick a woman - especially when we hear how handsome these men are? For those that like anything erotic, then you will be happy with this one. It's a story where it seems to be more about the man's pleasure than the woman's.
I voluntarily reviewed an audio version of this book.
