Not even a generous dowry can tempt any man to court Kathryn...
...until Sir William rides into town. Will she give in to becoming his Kate?
Kathryn's strong will and sharp tongue have branded her a shrew in her small town. 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 only desires 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 re-imagining of "The Taming of the Shrew" is sure to enchant longtime Shakespeare fans and newcomers alike.
