Description of How To Tame A Willful Wife: 1. Forbid her from riding astride 2. Hide her dueling sword 3. Burn all her breeches and buy her silk drawers 4. Frisk her for hidden daggers 5. Don't get distracted while frisking her for hidden daggers... Anthony Carrington, Earl of Ravensbrook, expects a biddable bride. A man of fiery passion tempted by the rigors of war into steely self-control, he demands obedience from his troops and his future wife. Regardless of how fetching she looks in breeches. Promised to the Earl of Plump Pockets by her impoverished father, Caroline Montague is no simpering miss. She rides a war stallion named Hercules, fights with a blade, and can best most men with both bow and rifle. She finds Anthony autocratic, domineering, and...ridiculously handsome. It's a duel of wit and wills in this charming retelling of The Taming of the Shrew. But the question is...who's taming whom?

There is a difference between a book not working and a book not working, or is there? Well here the book was well written, it could have been really good, but I hated the characters and that ruined it all for me.First we have Lord Ass Hero. Sure he fits his time and is perfect for that with his cons...
Rating: D+I had no problems with the writing of the structure of the story. My problem was with the characters and the overall story line. The heroine came off as indecisive, stubborn and not at all likable. One minute you started to feel sorry for her and then she said or did something that made...
