Fun western historical; light and entertaining but not silly... 13 Sept. 2011
By L. Burns - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When Eliza Jane Carter gets off the stagecoach in Gardiner, Texas she's got just one thing on her mind: Teaching other women how to improve their lot in life. She's made it her life's work to travel from town to town educating and advising women about issues like finances and family planning. It's not unusual for some of the men in town to be a little disgruntled when she upsets the status quo, but since Eliza Jane rarely stays in one place for very long, she doesn't let that bother her. When her income is suddenly cut off, Eliza Jane finds herself stranded in Gardiner, with half the population mad at her and the other half not sure what to make of her. Her only allies are the local "working girls" and the town's doctor, Will Martinson.

Will can't help but be attracted to Eliza Jane. She's smart, pretty and unpredictable. And while she might not fit the mold of the "perfect" doctor's wife, she certainly does keep life interesting. But can Will convince Eliza Jane to put her traveling days behind her and settle down in Gardiner?

This was a lot of fun! I hesitated to start the book because I thought Eliza Jane's character would be that dreaded cliché, the man-hating spinster spouting rhetoric that would seem woefully out of place in a late 19th century setting. I'm glad to say that wasn't the case at all. There's a sincerity to the character that is very appealing and her approach to women's "empowerment" seemed in keeping with the time period. She simply wants women to know that they don't have to have a baby every year if they don't want to, and that there are ways of earning money that don't involve taking off your clothes. There's a whole lot of sizzling chemistry between Will and Eliza Jane, and while the love scenes weren't particularly explicit, they were pleasantly steamy.

Now I've read quite a few books by Shannon Stacey, and while it's entirely possible that she's written a "bad" male lead somewhere along the line, I haven't run across him yet! Will is no exception. Intelligent, charming, good-looking - but all in a down-to-earth way that puts him a cut above many of the fantasy males that populate Romancelandia.

There's a lot of humor in the story and I read most of the book with a goofy smile on my face. The title is a bit misleading - there's no "taming" to speak of; Will likes Eliza Jane just the way she is, and I liked Will all the better for it.

At just over 200 pages this is a full length novel, though a fairly short one. There's occasional strong language and some moderate sexual content. There's a follow-up to this book that tells the story of the town sheriff,Becoming Miss Becky . Loved the clever little epilogue.

LOVE IT!! 14 May 2011

I love Shannon Stacey's books, and like the other's I've read, this was a great book! Taming Eliza Jane is the first of a 2 book series (with more to come). The 2nd book is called Becoming Miss Becky. Once you get started, you will have a hard time putting it down.

Taming Eliza Jane is set in a small Texas western town, with a ton of great personalities in the main and supporting characters. The fight of a liberal woman for women to have more rights as well as the liberal woman's fight for a man makes for a very interesting and very steamy book!

Eliza Jane Carter women's libber arrives in Gardiner, Texas to help liberate women. This is a delightful and
witty western with just enough sex to make it romantic. Her love interest is a doctor/deputy sheriff with a
great sense of humor and a town sheriff who is grumpy and wants to shoot everyone. A very enjoyable read and
I will look forward to reading more of Shannon Stacey's books.

This was a fun story. Believable characters. Lively romance, spicy sex and humor. No over the top villain. Eliza Jane and Will get through this romance by getting to know each other and working through their issues. I enjoyed this quite a lot.

I love Shannon Stacy books and this one did not disappoint. I would recommend this one to anyone who enjoys a sexy story written in a period in history when women were trying to gain their independence.
