Litfuse Publicty Tours Presents: Swept Away (Trouble in Texas, #1) by Mary Connealy


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 Review:

 From the title of the book Ruthy MacNeil is the one swept away. She is dragged for miles down stream by a flash flood. Having her arm wedged in some wood saved her life.
Luke Stone is on his way home to redeem his property, when he stumbles upon a muddy mess of a girl, Rosie aka Ruthy. Because of her beautiful red hair Luke insists on calling her Rosie!! Others do also, but she is quick to correct them.
A vicious man by the name of Flint Greer, has stolen the S Bar S Ranch that was owned by his Father. He not only stole the ranch but is responsible for killing his Dad. Luke is not some young kid anymore, he is a survivor. He fought for the North during the Civil War, and was in Andersonville Prison, and has forged lasting friendships with a Preacher, a Doctor, A Lawyer, and a Texas Ranger. There all there waiting for him in Broken Wheel, TX, a small town, with not many people.
I found the faith of these people to be outstanding....even when they wanted revenge they listened to their Lord, and decided to do what was right! There was such compassion shown to Greer's wife and family, they wanted to help them no matter the cost.
I hope that in the next book there will be further updates, but this book was a keeper, and I didn't want it to end.

I received this book through the Revell Book Bogging Program, and wasn't required to give a positive review.
