The Wrangler's Inconvenient Wife starts with Fran Morris fleeing with Emma, her little sister from Memphis and Mr. Underwood. Mr. Underwood has been obsessing on Emma and has taken inappropriate advances toward her. Because of his position and money, Fran and Emma have no parents and brother to protect their honor. Her only option is to leave everything behind and hopes that Mr. Underwood does not follow.
Edgar White, rancher, wrangler, and resident of Bear Creek, Wyoming, was on his way to load up the family's cattle. Noticing that there is a split in the railroad track, he had to warned the train from derailing. From the instant that Edgar and Fran's eyes met, they felt a connection to each other, until he and the Bear Creek found out that Fran has lied about her age as being an orphan to stay with her sister Emma and to escape from Mr. Underwood.
Edgar didn't want anything to do with her but he couldn't allow Fran to stay at the saloon and become one of the saloon girls. He married her with the intent of in name and to protect Fran and her sister, Emma. Edgar does not trust women especially after his experience with his mother and being used by another woman. As far as he is concerned, all women were of the same cloth.
Fran wanted to prove that she will be a good wife to Edgar and set to prove that she will not lie to him and be a burden to him. She has planned to prove that to him during the cattle trail. It doesn't help when she is keeping secrets from Edgar.
The Wrangler's Inconvenient Wife is a heartwarming story. Fran has never lost faith in God. She's protective on people she cares about. She has never wavered even when Edgar tried so hard to ignore her and tried to break all ties to her. Edgar has a wounded heart but he is a good and decent man. He is responsible and tried to do what's right. Readers/Listeners cannot help but love these two characters.
This story is well written by the author. The background of the story and the environment in which the characters interact is very believable in this time and place.
The narrator, Laural Merlington does a very good job in narrating the story. The voices she provided are very distinguishable from each of the characters. Fran sounds so proper and yet humble. I love the emotions that the narrator gives to Edgar when he is trying to deny his feeling for Fran and also the fear that he might lose Fran.

I wish the book cover matched the story. Book says his hair is golden in the campfire. Also says he's a 'bear' of a man.

Which scene did you most enjoy?
There were so many great scenes in this book that it is difficult to choose just one. The book is loaded with excitement beginning with a train derailing, cattle stampede, a kidnapping and a shoot-out between the good and bad guys.
There are also lots of romantic moments too as Flan and Edgar get to know each other. They don't always see eye to eye which causes some good scenes of discontent between the pair.
What I love about this book is that it is perfect for all kinds of readers. The story is plot and character driven and the romance is completely clean. I would have no trouble recommending it to my aunt who loves a good story without all the erotic bits. I'm not a huge fan of these scenes either but for some reason I dislike them even more in audiobooks. I will definitely be checking out the rest of the series.
