Summary

Just as Homeland Security Agent Addison Leigh reaches the pinnacle of her cyber investigation into a firearms smuggling ring, she's attacked and left for dead. Her estranged husband, ICE Agent Mack Jordan, is notified that she's at the hospital in a coma. He may have let his past military trauma ruin their short marriage, but she never gave up on their relationship, and he remains her next of kin. 
 
Mack rushes to her bedside, where he promises to hunt down the man who attacked her. Mack failed her once when he bailed on their marriage, and he's not about to let her down again. But when she wakes up in the hospital, she remembers neither the attack nor ever being married to Mack. And when a second attempt to take her life is made, it's clear something very sinister is going on, and Mack and Addison are in for the ride of their lives.

And even the temptation of her father’s wealth cannot sway the men in her direction.Astride his warhorse, William is the pinnacle of manhood and a burr in Kathryn’s side. His impish “Kate” calls raise her hackles, yet she can’t keep from being lulled by his voice.Though he claims he is the only man for her, she is certain he desires only her rich dowry. When he proposes marriage, she accepts as a way out of her miserable home, but expects nothing. Freed from her cruel family and judgmental town, Kathryn must decide if she will continue her battle of wills with the sometimes charming, often maddening Sir William. Does she remain the shrewish Kathryn—or find a way to be Will’s Kate? This delightful take on the classic romantic comedy—from the shrew’s point of view—is “rich in Shakespearean references and vivid historical details” (Katherine Longshore).
