Publisher's Summary

She would do anything to protect her sister - even marry a surly cowboy....
Alone and on the run, Fran must protect her younger sister at all cost - but she never expected the price would be marriage to a stranger. Her new husband may be a respected rancher in the community, but Fran can't trust him with her secrets.
Trail boss Edgar White never planned for a marriage of convenience - he never planned to marry at all. His past taught him that women can't be trusted, and the secrets she's keeping prove his new wife is no exception.
But as a cattle drive forces them into close proximity, Edgar soon discovers the depths of Fran's devotion to her sister - and that it isn't so easy to keep his heart guarded.

Wyoming Legacy - Heartwarming

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 was given this audiobook by the author via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated or influenced in any way in writing this review.

Enjoyed -Great, Mostly Innocent Historical Romance

This Historical Romance set in Wyoming.

Fran Morris is trying to protect your sister from the unwanted advances of a "suitor" back east. They pose as orphans and get on the train headed west. When the train is derails they are found out to be impostors.

When their only choice for employment is the local brothel. Edgar White marries Fran. They understand it is 'in name only' wedding to save the ladies from the fate of a brothel.

As the entire family, including Fran, moves cattle across state lines, Fran & Edgar learn more about each other, their attraction to one another grows and she does her best to flirt with him.

This nicely set historical, western romance is enjoyable without a lot of the mature themes & strong language that is prevalent in books, contemporary and historical, that is so prevalent today.

Laural Merlington is very good performing this book. Very good job and four stars out of five.

Nothing to warn
