ABOUT THE BOOK

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 ON THIS BOOK

Swept Away is a wonderful, interesting historical fiction that I thoroughly enjoyed. Mary Connealy writes another great cowboy historical fiction with characters that you are sure to fall in love with. Well most of them anyway! Ruthy was a sweet girl that had been awfully mistreated by the couple who took her in after her parents died, as well as this couple’s son. After the river accident, Ruthy is now on her own, and she really doesn’t miss the former family she was living with. Ruthy was found by Luke Stone while on the way to reclaim his father’s ranch. A ranch that was wrongly taken from his father.

There is a lot of stuff going on with the plot in this story, making Swept Away interesting and exciting enough to keep the interest of readers until the very end. If you enjoy cowboy stories, with a little suspense and thrills, you will enjoy this one. I highly recommend that you pick up your copy soon!
