Swept Away

Author: Mary Connealy
Publisher: Bethany House
March 2013
ISBN: 978-0764209147
Genre: Historical

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 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?

SWEPT AWAY is the first book in Ms. Connealy’s new series Trouble in Texas. And if this book is any indication, readers are going to be SWEPT AWAY in delight.

Ruthy is a strong Irish heroine, hard-working and determined to make it on her own. Luke is a sweet hero, bent on revenge, but kind and caring, even when he gets frustrated. Equally determined, these two are bound to be butting heads.

I enjoyed reading SWEPT AWAY and highly recommend this book to fans of historical fiction. $14.99. 320 pages.
