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?
The only one in Essie’s family who made her feel like she was loved is her Grandmother. She has dreams for her future and they don’t include leaving a home where she serves her father and step-mother into a home where she serves her husband. When she agrees to an arranged marriage, she plans to use it to get the independence she always wanted.
The gypsy lifestyle is the life that Freedom wants to live. He is happy to agree to an arranged marriage and even happier when he meets Essie. He is determined to show her that he isn’t trying to hold her back but instead he will do anything to help her live the life she wants and he will be by her side every step of the way.
Essie and Freedom go together like pieces of a puzzle. Every time she challenges him it just endears her to him more and she is about to realize that there isn’t a better person to have in her corner.
