I LOVED THIS AUDIO BOOK!!! From the beginning, I fell in love with the narrator's voice. Mr. Daniel Dorse sounded exactly like I had imagined Tucker Prescott's voice would sound like when I read this book the first time on my kindle. Yes, I said the first time. I admit that I loved it so much that I read it twice. Naturally, as I started listening to the audio version, I fell in love again with the no nonsense, take charge, handsome hired gunman Tucker Prescott. Tucker was hired by the mayor of Spring Junction to restore law and order to the once peaceful town, which can only happen if and when he can remove the McGill gang for good. The gang had been terrorizing the residents and business owners for so long that most were thinking of packing up and moving on. The Sheriff was apparently enforcing no law and maintaining no order as far as folks could tell. When Tucker arrived he was given a cabin to stay in and a few horses to use as needed, all conveniently located outside of town. It was on the mayor's property but well away from the large home occupied by the mayor, his daughter, and the woman who helped him raise her after his wife died. Tucker had insisted on complete isolation while doing his job. He clearly did not have time nor did he need the distraction of trying to protect any women who might be in or near his cabin. Getting rid of the McGill gang was going to be a challenge, but Tucker truly understood the term challenge when the beautiful, feisty, sassy mayor's daughter Dolly Baker burst uninvited into his cabin right after he first arrived. Not only was she disrespectful, she was argumentative and in dire need of good spanking. After the threat of being put over his knee and sent away, Dolly stumbled on an opportunity to get even with the bossy but handsome gunman. This leads to the first of many trips over Tucker's knee for Dolly. I've heard that curiosity killed the cat. Curiosity didn't kill Dolly but it certainly turned her bottom a pretty shade of crimson and Tucker enjoyed every smack. The characters in this book are amazing. I especially loved sweet, kind, wise old Father O'Brian, Tucker's friend and aide in gathering information, and if Mr. Dorse isn't a true Irishman with his authentic thick Irish brogue, I'll kiss your Barney stone! This is an extraordinary story and as you hear Tucker attempt to tame Dolly and the town of Spring Junction, I hope you'll be as impressed with Maggie Carpenter's talent and imagination as I am. Tucker Prescott's plan is ingenious and will blow your socks off! I'll be listening to this one again (with my husband) this weekend. Thanks Ms. Carpenter, for the hours of awesome entertainment!!!

I plan on purchasing this book. I think I will enjoy it more. I do feel like there was a good storyline. But, the narration took so much away from the story, I had to give it a some thought before I wrote my review. I reached the conclusion that I wanted and needed to read the book. I shouldn't have had to put that much effort into trying to determine whether or not the book was good.
Therefore, it pains me to say that I really, really did not like the narration. The narrator's voice made me think more of an old dusty man as opposed to a hot, sexy cowboy. Because his voice created this image in my head, by the time he got to the first spanking, I was honestly kind of creeped out.
When he switched over to Dolly's voice, it was just strange. It took me out of the story and made me think of some strange man trying to imitate a young girl. I didn't care for Dolly at all, but I'm not sure if it was because of her personality, or the way the narrator read her character.
I have listened to other audio books narrated by a man. He did a "cowboy" voice, and both the male and female voices. I never got the sense of an old man or a creepy man imitating a woman. It didn't taken me out of the story.
I would recommend you listen for yourself. You may find the narrator's rendition is to your liking. I just couldn't connect the cover photo to the voice.
I did receive this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review
