Elizabeth "Liz" Castle was running away from her lecherous uncle and dressed as a boy heading west on a train. Caroline, a widow from Chicago was on the same train heading westward to marry Wade Malone as a mail order bride, but he wanted a "in name only" marriage, someone to cook, clean and raise his two children. On the journey Caroline notices that Liz is not a boy and they strike up a conversation. Caroline tells her about being a mail order bride, but she doesn't want to do it, she wants to return to Chicago and convinces Liz to take her place. Who knew that Wade was a stern believer in domestic discipline. This is the story of Wade and Liz and how he deals with his wife. This is a domestic discipline story and is a clean story without discussing sex.

This is another fabulous book by Patty Devlin. This is a sequel to Mail Order Bride in which Caroline decides not to go through with becoming a Mail Order bride and heads back home. The story picks up on her train ride home where she meets Royce. She immediately steals his heart but she is in denial that she has any feelings for him. Never the less he takes it upon himself to deal with her bratty and temperamental ways with his firm hand. Once they arrive in Chicago life’s circumstances bring them together and they are quickly married. I really enjoyed the characters and the interactions between them. This is just a sweet domestic discipline story with a lot of adventure thrown in.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was given a free copy for an honest and fair review.
Having read snippets of the book on Patty's website, I was so excited for its release, to read it. Meeting Liz and Caroline on the train was great fun. I enjoyed the rapport between the women. Liz's hair slipping out from her hat was an endearing moment. I felt such empathy for both women as Caroline tried to talk Liz into taking her place as a mail order bride. Patty wrote many heart-stopping moments into the chapter when Liz arrived with Wade waiting for her. Then the quick ceremony and trip to Wade's ranch.
From here, I won't give any more details, but say you need to read the book! The spankings were wonderfully detailed and emotional. And Patty wrote an amazingly perfect "Happily Ever After."
