What happens when you marry the bad boy--the reckless, irresistible cowboy who steals your heart and throws it back to you, the one you should have called it a day with after the affair?

When Cole, a gorgeous ne'er do well horse trainer and stereotypical bad boy, proposes to Hannah, daughter of a wealthy Southern family, it comes as a shock to everyone. After a twenty-year marriage, Cole leaves Hannah for one of her best friends and they play out their passions on a ranch in Kentucky, where old secrets and sentiments spring forth to unsettle their relationship. Caught in the middle are their beloved daughter Mattie, and Georgia, the hired hand debutante who casts their fate.

Praise for The Bad Boy's Wife

The Bad Boy’s Wife is a wonderful novel, compelling, spare, and as suspenseful as any fine mystery, but this is literature, and it has remarkable emotional resonance. [Karen Shepard] writes with such grace that The Bad Boy’s Wife seems to have been waiting somewhere in the world simply for her to reveal it, which is the truest gift a writer can give to any reader.”
-Robb Forman Dew, American Book Award-winning author of Dale Loves Sophie to Death and The Evidence Against Her

“Taut, disturbing and memorable, this portrait of a marriage gone awry gains unusual power and poetry through its deft inversions of the past.”
-Andrea Barrett, National Book Award-winning author of Voyage of the Narwhal and Servants of the Map
