ABOUT THE BOOK
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: This is another winner!! A great book I really enjoyed reading it. Ruthy is such a fun character you just can't help but root for her, and you just want to so badly for Luke to find some peace!! I loved this book I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
More thoughts: Okay so when I wrote this review I had not put the connection together. The book mentions a character from another one of Mary Connealy's books: Over the Edge. I love when authors do that!! When characters connect to each other even in small ways I think it adds alot to the story!! I also forgot to mention this is the first in a series of books called Trouble in Texas. There were so many great characters in this story I am looking forward to more of their stories being added!!
