Summary

Neither Rex nor Regina wants a spouse, but they do have needs. Ranger Rex Duncan needs a false identity - just long enough to uncover a ring of Kansas ranch thieves. Answering Regina’s ad for a temporary husband, he leaves his beloved red dirt of Oklahoma to assume that disguise. But the most obstinate woman he’s ever known confounds his assignment, and with hair the red color that has always made his heart beat a little faster.

Regina Howard needs a new Mrs. in front of her name - just long enough to reclaim her deceased husband’s ranch, since Kansas law won’t allow women to own property. When Rex answers her ad for a husband who can take orders as part of a brief business arrangement, she finds this stubborn man ignores her every command. Yet, a good man is far more than just a name....

Delightful Arrangement ☺

After reading the Publisher's summary I wasn't expecting to like this book as much I did. The story is a different western style romance that drew me in and connected me to the characters immediately. This book is a great "feel good" choice to listen to on a rainy, lazy day. Leonor A. Woolworth, as always, adds dimension to the stories she reads. Keep this book in mind if you enjoy western romances with a good story 😉

Very good western romance

I found this story to pull me in from the very beginning. The book has some very endearing characters and some I didn't trust. Typically I do not listen to many Western Romances, so this was more difficult to get a complete picture in my mind. I thought the narrator was good, not great. Some of her character voices were awesome while others blended together. I loved how the story ended with a HEA. I'm not a fan of books that don't end that way. The issue of land trusts and how women were treated was enlightening and not in a good way. I would definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

The Ladies Arrangement

The Lady's Arrangement
Help Wanted
By: Colleen L. Donnelly


This historical western fiction centers on a widow in need of a fast marriage in order to keep the land and farm she and her husband had settled. Enter a cowboy that needs a fresh start after years driving cattle, or so he says.

The female protagonist is strong, knows her own mind yet she has some vulnerabilities. The male protagonist is much more than he seems.

The listener will be treated to unscrupples characters, good folks and wondering if a real romance will bloom.

The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Leonor A. Woodworth is amazing. The voices matched the vision I had of the characters.

This was a enjoyable listen!!!

Sweet Historical Romance

This was a new author to me, but a much loved narrator!
I loved this unique sstory! Full of great details, lots of inner conversations, and scheming from almost every character! It's easy to spot the bad guys, but there's way too many of them! It's easy to follow the story, but it's branching off at every turn. It's easy to love the good guys, but just as easy to get frustrated with them!

The narration was wonderful! The male characters being distinctive and varied, the female few full of emotion and independence.

Very good

Loved it. I really loved how the author managed to weave in mystery, adventure, and romance. The use of red as a symbol throughout was also fantastic. My first book by this author but definitely will not be my last!

Sassy, with a Mission

This is the story of Regina Howard. She is alone with her young son Jess, after the untimely suspicious death of her husband. Regina is an extremely strong willed, determined woman and will do anything to keep her home. Even if it means setting aside decorum, and marrying a total stranger. Said stranger is Rex Duncan an undercover Ranger sent to stop a swindlers ring and marry the unsuspecting Regina under the assumed name of Ben Miller, but even he is baffled by the widow. After many pointless confrontations and a meaningless marriage Rex (Ben) wonders if he hasn’t bitten off more than he can chew, give up this mission, return home, let someone else help her save the farm, so he doesn’t loss his heart to the beauty with the flaming red hair.
This was the third audible book I have been gifted from this author thank you. I love her style. All are standalone. Each one has been about a different time period, and all of them are of strong, determined women who have overcome a diversity to achieve their goal.
I also want to add the narrator, Leonor A Woolworth did a fantastic job.
