Book Review: Swept Away

About Swept Away:

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?

My Opinion
Having really enjoyed Over the Edge from the Kincaid Brides, I was really excited to read Swept Away! And rightly so!

I loved the characters, Ruthy and Luke, and watching the conflict, strength, stubbornness and love between the two develop and grow!

I love the humor that Mary Connealy always writes with and the finesse of how she brings a plot, characters and story together!

If you love historical romance comedies, then you will love Swept Away!
