Litfuse Review:Swept Away by:Mary Connealy


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 Review:
The start of Swept Away finds us in the middle of a a mild ruckus not anything unusual about that. Luke finds himself coming out to be greeted by a sheriffs deputy that was questioning him about his saddlebags and their content. Luke doesn't want any trouble but he knows if this messenger of the law approached him he probably had good reason. He is contemplating if he should let the gentleman search them or make a run for it. You guessed it he decides to run.

While we are getting to know Luke Stone a little bit better. In comes Ruthy with her more than strange family and the makings of it which you will find out about when you read the book. She tells her family not to cross this body of water but they don't listen so she and her family get separated because they failed to heed her advice. As a result, she is found by the famous Luke Stone. He ends up taking Ruthy with him because he isn't real sure what to do with this very soaked to the bone young lady considering the fact he is now being chased.

This book like all of Mary Connealy's books are very exciting and start with the excitement at the very beginning. This one is a winner for sure!
