Publisher's Summary

Rance Balcomb finds himself facing a shotgun marriage situation to a woman who doesn't speak a word of English. He practically ignores Elsa until he sees his new wife with her hair down, wearing the new clothes he'd purchased, and he realizes he's married a beautiful woman. He soon discovers he has a rival for her affections and decides it's time to make their marriage real. Her own father, as well as her former love interest, have other ideas.

Good cowboy romance

Barbara Goss touches on the subject of parental abuse by the father and shows clearly how the mother and the daughters feel and their reactions to this abuse.
The way this story has been written it is easy to imagine what it must have been like for Rance and Elsa to find themselves in a shotgun marriage situation where neither of them understood what the other was saying because they didn't speak the same language. They worked hard to overcome this barrier so that they could get to know each other and soon fell in love.
I loved the honesty and the working together and the gelling of the two main characters in this story and the support of friends and close family.
This audiobook version has a good narrator in Becky Boyd and I especially love her rendition of Elsa. She really comes across as being very innocent and quite cute..
I am very happy to recommend this story as a good, clear, cowboy romance and hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
The audiobook version was provided free of charge by the author and the above is my honest and unbiased review.

Recommended for historical romance readers

Would you consider the audio edition of The Shotgun Proposal to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed the audio version very much

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

no

Any additional comments?

A story of overcoming a language barrier and cultural differences in an arranged marriage.
With these obstacles and even a murder plot, will love be able to keep the couple together? This is a love story not to miss, especially when being read by Becky Boyd. She does an excellent job with the accents. This is a story of love, intrigue and faith.
