When a cowboy focused on revenge encounters a woman determined to distract him, there’s going to be trouble in Texas!

Swept away when her wagon train attempts a difficult river crossing, Ruthy MacNeil isn’t terribly upset at being separated from the family who raised her. All they’ve ever done is work her to the bone. Alive but disoriented, she’s rescued by Luke Stone…so unfortunately, there are more chances to die in her immediate future.

Luke is on a mission to reclaim the ranch stolen from his family. But the men currently on the property won’t let it go without a fight. Luke plans to meet up with friends who will help him take back the land, and since he can’t just leave Ruthy in the middle of nowhere, she’s going to have to go with him.

But the more time Luke spends around the hardworking young woman, the more he finds himself thinking of things besides revenge. Will Ruthy convince him to give up his destructive path and be swept away by love?

My Thoughts:

WOW!! I couldn’t put it down. It was torture for me not to sit up late at night to finish reading it. But I did manage to read it all in just over a couple of hours spanned over two days.

It held me and as I read it, it was like I was right there in the action. Like I could see Ruthy fighting for her life as she was swept downstream in a flooded river, hear the gunshots when Luke tried to get back his ranch from the man who killed his father. I felt the fear that Glynna experienced every time her husband came near her.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. I know everybody experiences something different when they read a book. I don’t know what you will experience when you read this book. But I do know that I can’t wait for the rest of the series to come out so that I can read them all.
