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? (Publisher's description)
This is the first book I have read by Mary Connealy. I have always enjoyed western fiction this certainly does not disappoint. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed every page. It kept me hanging on from the very opening scene, right up until the end. I enjoyed how the heroine Ruthy is not just a damsel in distress. She's spunky and can hold her own when it comes to Luke. I loved each of the other members of the Regulators and am looking forward to seeing them explored in future books.
