Tessa Bowers grew up in Liberty, Montana but never knew of the well hidden and very strict rules for married women. If she had, she might not have flirted and set her sights on the wealthy rancher, Cole Bridger.

Cole wasn't a man controlled by anyone, let alone the little spitfire trying to lure him to the alter. He decided who he married. He decided when. So when Tessa sh

A quick but sizzling read! 3.5 stars
WTF Are You Reading?
Tessa Bowers has always been wild, opinionated, and down right ornery. But there has also always been one man who she would gift with her submission, Cole Bridger.

Cole can't seem to resist the fire of his beautiful new wife. A fire that he now sees was almost extinguished by the hateful and demeaning words of her jealous sister and hateful mother.

Acceptance of her beauty, intelligence, and sexuality are just a few of the lessons that Tess Bridger is being taught by her new husband. As she is tra

Same old formula, if you read the last book you pretty much read this one.

READ THE REVIEWS for this one before you buy.

I promise you, this is important. Go to Amazon, start at the 1 stars, and if the book STILL sounds like you’d read it, go for it.

The description made it sound like it could be a dom/sub western historical, right? That’s how I took it.

READ THE REVIEWS. Oh, how I wish I could spare others. But, if you want to punish yourself for a couple of hours, add this book to your cart.

I love good steamy scenes. I love romance. I love heroes that make me swoon, and

Would you listen to Taming Tessa again? Why?
If I were to listen to this story again it would be in order to listen to the whole series from start to finish. I do think that I might enjoy the series better if I was reading it.

Have you listened to any of David Beroff and Rita Rush ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Have not listened to either of these narrators before. I would love to listen to other books that have Ms. Rush as a narrator. But I'm on the fence about Mr. Beroff

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Tessa is a strong willed young woman and grew up in a very unloving strict home, where she constantly tested her limits. She has had sights on Cole for a long time and little did she know that she was going to be married to him, while assuming she was just going to a regular church service.

Cole has had his eye on Tessa for a long time as well and had already had a claim on her and was just waiting on her to come of age before marrying her.

I listen to the first book in this series and was so hoping this one would be better. Since I promised the publisher I would listen to both audios I have and this does start out really good until they bring the cork out in church and plug her in front of the members. To really be able to relate to a book even of this type it must first be believable which this is not. Had there been cults back in this time period or even one family maybe it would be a believable story but a whole town that gets ...more

A Quick Series Review
These four books were fun, quick, and fast. I listened to them all over one weekend. If you are in the mood for straight up erotica then these might be the books for you.  If dubious consent doesn't bother you, and you don't mind being a little shocked then these books might be for you. Even though the stories take place during wild west times, the setting doesn't come into play very much because the plot completely focuses on sex. 

I love, love, love audiobooks and listeni

This is book 2 of the Montana Maiden Series. It can read as a standalone but to fully get to know the people and understand the concept of the town of Liberty, MT, it is best to read in order. In this story, we start with the wedding of Cole Bridger and Tessa Bowers. A wedding she had no idea was going to happen until she was in the church. In this town all married woman are given a daily dose of a pill that is an aphrodisiac, lubricant and works as birth control, inserted anally and plugged. Th ...more

Tess was definitely needing some taming in this one! She started off as quite the little shrew. Thankfully some medicine and pleasure brought about an attitude change for her. Erotica - with great dialogue. Yes there are romantic elements and there is an overall plot and story development to the series. I'm not as much for a lot of oral so this one was good but I enjoyed it a bit less then the 1st one. Still a great read, full of very hot dialogue, lots of pleasure, all in a town that certainly ...more

This is the second book in the Montana Maidens series. This story is about Cole, who we met in the first book and Tessa. Tessa has a reputation in town for her verbal barbs. Unfortunately, Tessa was very unhappy with her life. Her parents are very strict and humorless with her. But, she was very interested in Cole. So, when Cole wanted to marry her, she agreed. When Tessa got to their house, she started the sexual training that all the wives in the community underwent. It was strange to her, but ...more

The second book in the Montana Maidens series we are once again transported to a town where the men take care of the women, in fact they take control of them using a “heat” inducing drug. This is an erotic novel about the men taking control but not for abuse for care, passion and pleasure. This may be a short novella but it lacks for nothing, giving the reader descriptive scenery and characters as well as a temperature higher than normal. Be aware pick this up and you might just get burned, but ...more

This is town with it's own rules for married life but even girls growing up in town don't always know what goes on behind closed doors. Tessa has been treated in ways that have turned her into a real pain. But Cole seems to be able to see the real Tessa. I love how he is willing to bend and adjust some of his ideas about married life when he can see what Tessa has faced. He truly cares about her and this story turns out to be so much sweeter than I expected when I started reading it.

This is the second book in this series where the women in this Montana town are kept aroused for their husbands and "corked." Tessa is a spitfire who has set her sights on Cole which is definitely mutual. Cole has watched Tessa for years and has decided now is the time to marry and start taming her. Tessa takes to marriage and "training" with gusto. This series is not for everyone and I would really recommend reading these in order.

A steamy read

I'm going to be honest, this series is totally addictive to me. Not sure if it is the submission or what, but these are great reads. The book is super steamy and always has a twist, but if you appreciate a little spanking, dominance and submission. This is the book for you.

No storyline. It's the last one I'll buy in the series

This book sounded so much better than it was. There was no storyline or interest other than Tessa'a training and frankly, it wasn't worth the price. I buy a lot of ebooks and for $4.99 I expect to actually get something for it.
I'm very disappointed with this series and I'm stopping with this book.
