Being a gypsy means going into an arranged marriage.
My siblings fought against it, but not me.
Having a woman who was raised to be a wife, a mother, and warm body for me to sink into? Sounded good to me.
Unfortunately, my new wife is not what I was expected.
She’s mouthy, bratty, and gets on my last nerve.
But I’m no quitter and I’m not afraid to put in the work.
So, I romanced my wife. I gave her time and space. I had patience.
I realized she was fighting a much bigger battle than I had even known.
She’s spent her life being told she’s evil and cursed.
That’s not who she is.
She’s beautiful, smart, and has big dreams.
She’s more than a bride to be sold off. More than a prize to be won.
Now, more than ever, I’m determined to be her champion.
The only thing she wants is freedom.
And now that she has it, will she choose me?

About Misty Walker
Misty Walker has been writing stories, articles, and poems since junior high. Preferring to stay behind the scenes until now, she has been an avid romance reader, a blogger, and an audiobook proofer for the last fifteen years. Growing up in a nomadic household, Misty has lived all up and down the western USA, but recently settled in Reno, Nevada. Misty is a mom to two kids who are slowly trying to kill her, but they are cute, so she will keep them. She just celebrated her sixteen-year anniversary with her computer geek husband and has two dogs, Dunkin and Dutch, that are her constant companions while she happily reads and writes her life away.
After reading this book, I immediately went out to pick out the rest of the series because this one was just so good. I was so intrigued by the other characters from these series that I couldn’t help but read the rest.
Freedom and Essie are one of those old souls that were just destined to be together. The growth of their relationship was just awe-inspiring. Their marriage became a partnership and seeing how it grew into that was really so special to read.
I normally don’t like the modern-day arranged marriage troupe but I take a special exemption on this one because it just works. I loved Essie’s fiery spirit and Freedom’s passion. These are two people who were meant to be together but didn’t realize that they really were in it for the long haul.
Overall, this is one great summer read for the true romantic. I can’t wait to read another story from this series! I hope Misty Walker will come up with more.
