If you're looking for a sensual historical romance with a feisty heroine and deliciously determined hero, you'll love Christy English's HOW TO TAME A WILLFUL WIFE. I particularly enjoyed the intensity of romance between Anthony and Caroline. Their attraction was immense, yet there was also a tension between them that continually stoked the attraction into flame. The story has echoes of Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew" with a heroine who at first seems impossible to tame. The pleasure of the story is watching the attraction between Caroline and Anthony, which is instant and powerful, turn into something deeper.
When Anthony Carrington, Earl of Ravensbrook marries Caroline Montague, he expects her to be a wife who will love, honor, and obey him. Obedience is a sticking point for Caroline, particularly as she's been raised by her military father to fight with a blade, bow, and rifle. She's as close to her war stallion Hercules as she is to any friend, and she expects to maintain all of her fighting skills after her marriage. Anthony's priority is keeping Caroline safe, but his attempts to tame her lead to a battle full of passion.
Anthony Carrington, Earl of Ravensbrook, returns from war to marry his commanding officer's daughter. A man of fiery passion and strict self-control, Anthony expects a biddable bride who obeys him without question. But 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. It's a duel of wit and wills in this charming first book of a new series.
