"He might have pointy ears and horns, for all I know!"
Angelica Dawson was extremely upset when she realized her Uncle had plans for her to marry a total stranger. She would be leaving the only home she had ever known; the servants she loved as family, for a place she'd never been and a man she had never met.
After meeting him, she was even more distraught. He seemed to have a very long list of things he considered to be unacceptable behavior in young ladies. But if he thought for a moment that his new bride could be easily molded into the girl he desired, he was much mistaken, for she was as determined not to be "tamed," as he was to "tame" her!

But she had filled her days of dealing with his loss by working in the dormitory, which had been turned into a hospital. No longer the quiet, shy, stuttering girl she had been when she arrived, Miri was now a competent young woman who was determined to ease suffering any way she could.
But she was certainly unprepared for the challenge of caring for Captain Nate Alley, the recipient of a gunshot wound, now under her care.
Captain Alley had no patience for being injured. He was quite accustomed to being in control and in charge, and having others submit to his leadership.

Who was going to win this battle?
