Item Details

"Swept away when her wagon train attempts a difficult river crossing, Ruthy MacNeil isn't all that upset at being separated from the family who raised her. All they've ever done is work her to the bone. She prayed for a chance to get away, and then came the raging flood. Alive but disoriented, she's rescued by Luke Stone...so unfortunately, there are more chances to die in her immediate future. Luke is heading home to reclaim the ranch stolen from his family. But the men who killed his father are working hard to ensure Luke doesn't make it alive. He has no choice but to keep moving. Still, he can't just abandon Ruthy, so she'll have to come along. His friends--a ragtag group of former Civil War soldiers--take a fast interest in the pretty gal. Luke thinks that's rather rude--he's the one who found her. And the more time he spends around the hard-working young woman who is a mighty good cook, the more he finds himself thinking beyond revenge and toward a different future. For the first time in a long time, Luke is tempted to turn from his destructive path and be swept away by love"--Amazon.com, viewed February 27, 2013.

This is my favorite Mary Connealy book by far. I like the way she toned down the humor (although her breezy style is still there). The characters became more real to me, instead of being "over the top" as in some of her other books. I cared about what happened to them, to the point I had to look ahead (something I rarely do) to see if certain characters would be all right or not! I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
