Being a fugitive in the old west shouldn’t be this much fun.
The year is 1860. Robby Riverton is a rising star on the New York stage. But he witnesses a murder by a famous crime boss and is forced to go on the run – all the way to Santa Fe.
When he still can’t seem to ditch his pursuers, he disguises himself as a mail-order bride he meets on the wagon train. Caught between gangsters who want to kill him and the crazy, uncouth family of his “intended”, Robby’s only ally is a lazy sheriff who sees exactly who Robby is – and can’t resist him.
Trace Crabtree took the job as sheriff of Flat Bottom because there was never a thing going on. And then Robby Riverton showed up disguised as a woman and betrothed to Trace’s brother. If that wasn’t complicated enough, Trace finds the man as appealing as blueberry pie. He urges Robby to stay undercover until the danger has passed.
But a few weeks of having Robby-Rowena at the ranch and the Crabtree family will never be the same again.
This is Eli Easton at her best! Robby Riverton: Mail Order Bride showcases the best parts of this historical western with wit, humor, and romance. Full of interesting characters, a terrific plot, and suspense – this book has it all.
Marry the story with Matthew Shaw’s fantastic narration and you have a fabulous listen that’s so entertaining I went back and listened to it all over again! I loved the way Shaw performs the dialogue and brings the locales and settings to life. This listen is a perfect example of how an audiobook can absolutely feel like a complete experience.
Robby Riverton: Mail Order Bride is a truly fantastic audiobook – clever, fun, funny, sexy, suspenseful, and absolutely recommended!
