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?
