Publisher's Summary

Frances Arnsby has only three weeks to learn about romance. That’s all the time she has before the stagecoach whisks her back to Deadwood. Excited about a glowing future as a romance dime novelist, her hopes are dashed when her manuscript fails to connect. She hasn’t lived enough. Her dream will be over before it even starts if she doesn’t add life, love…passion. 

Chief reporter Clive Davidson is intrigued by the vibrant woman submitting her work to the paper. But when his plan to help goes horribly wrong, he must decide if teaching her about romance is worth the risk…to his career and his heart. 

As Frances enters a world of upper crust dalliances and deception, she discovers that perhaps Clive was right all along: romance in the stories are just that…fiction. Her career means the world to her, but if she can’t learn what true love really means, it could cost more than she ever thought possible. 

Get Romance in Rapid, the fourth book in the Seven Brides of South Dakota series, by Kari Trumbo. A bit of history, a touch of romance, and a whole lot of fun. Scroll up to get your copy!

Is there any such thing as romance?

Frances Arnsby sets out to sell her manuscript and become a novelist, but she’s told that her writing isn’t realistic. When she’s put in a situation to try and experience the real emotions, she gets more than she bargained for.

Kari Trumbo has written a sweet historical romance with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing about whether or not there will be a happily ever after.

If you’re looking for a top notch narrator, look no further than Meghan Kelly. She always does a fantastic job with the different characters and bringing out the emotions that they are experiencing.

The combination of Kari Trumbo and Meghan Kelly is an automatic listen for me!

Romance in a great audio

This is a great series . The author knows how to write a story with adventure, mystery and love . This is book four in the series . The author take on the characters are real like that it seems that they are your best friends.
Hero is Clive. Heroine is Frances.
Frances and Clive has their wires crossed . Frances wants to be a writer, Clive is a reporter. Clive advises Frances how to better make her book a success. The advice Clive gives is misleading. On thing leads to another and before you know it Frances and Clive are relying on each other. Before you know it they are a couple.

Meghan Kelly is unlimited with her success. Her voice is very unique, smooth and Clear. I still can’t get over how dj does all he characters

Really Sweet Entertaining Romance

This was a really fun read. I really loved her style of writing, she does a great job pulling you into the story with interesting characters and wonderful plot twists. The narrator does a great job with the acting and narration. I really think this book would make a fantastic Hallmark movie. If you are into the clean romances like I am then you'll love this book.

Great Read

Romance in Rapid (Seven Brides of South Dakota) was a great read by Kari Trumbo. Frances is a young aspiring author who has only three weeks to learn about romance. At the end of the three weeks the stage coach will whisk her back to her hometown. Clive is intrigued by Frances but he plans to teach her about romance to help her write. I absolutely loved reading Frances and Clive's story and can't wait to read more by Kari Trumbo.

Wonderful!

Kari Trumbo has written a sweet story that everyone will feel all of the emotions. A woman that wants to be a writer and a newspaper man find themselves in the up’s and down’s of life and love. Meghan Kelly did a fantastic job bringing it to life narrating it. I would recommend this one to anyone.

Enchanting

Actually it was a little slow at first, but then it was thoroughly enchanting. Seeing the hero finally realize what was right in front of him was fascinating.

A Great Romance Story

This is a great romance story I loved that it was about a struggling author a naive girl who doesn't know abything about love and the handsome reporter. It has misunderstandings and romance. I love the way he proposes it was so unique. I would highly recommend

Men and Romance💕

l don't think l have ever listened to a story set in the original settlers era. let me tell you it was an eye opener to see how much a news paper article could make or break a life. l was quite indignant on behalf of the ladies concerned and later on a little scared that anyone could have their future dictated for them.
l could never live in a time like that, I'd either be hiding in a closet or never leave the farm.
The story kept my interest throughout and l enjoyed the narration of the many townsfolk and Francis .
