"Swept away when her wagon train attempts a difficult river crossing, Ruthy MacNeil isn't all that upset at being separated from the family who raised her. All they've ever done is work her to the bone. She prayed for a chance to get away, and then came the raging flood. Alive but disoriented, she's rescued by Luke Stone...so unfortunately, there are more chances to die in her immediate future. Luke is heading home to reclaim the ranch stolen from his family. But the men who killed his father are working hard to ensure Luke doesn't make it alive. He has no choice but to keep moving. Still, he can't just abandon Ruthy, so she'll have to come along. His friends--a ragtag group of former Civil War soldiers--take a fast interest in the pretty gal. Luke thinks that's rather rude--he's the one who found her. And the more time he spends around the hard-working young woman who is a mighty good cook, the more he finds himself thinking beyond revenge and toward a different future. For the first time in a long time, Luke is tempted to turn from his destructive path and be swept away by love"--Amazon.com, viewed February 27, 2013.… (mer)

I liked this book. And that surprised me. It moves too fast in some places and too slow in others and there's really no building of a relationship, and the book is mostly about revenge. And yet it somehow managed to be an uplifting story of justice and love. Somehow. Though I'm not sure it really earned a spot in the Christian fiction genre. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series even though why I liked this book so much still confuses me a bit. ( )

Great book!

Full of suspense to the very end. Mary writes in such a fashion that the characters come alive. I love it and I'm going to read all her books since this is my first foray into Mary's writing. ( )

A good start to another Mary Connelly series. I always enjoy her story lines and her characters. She has written a charming story, full of action, romance and some humor. I especially liked how this band of Regulators looked out for each other. There truly was friends that stuck together closer than a brother.

Ruthy MacNeil was truly 'swept away' at the beginning of the story during her wagon trains' attempt to cross a rising river. She isn't upset about leaving behind what 'family' she had though as they treated her as a servant. Luke is on a mission to reclaim the ranch stole from his family while he was off in a war and then in prison. He wasn't counting on finding a half drowned woman in the middle of nowhere, and ends up taking her to his town of Broken Wheel, where they must both hide out so no one knows they are in town. The fellow who stole Luke's ranch is looking for him and waiting to kill him. Ruthy will be caught in the middle of all this and will soon show Luke that she is quite a woman, who can help him far more than he ever imagined. Luke's friends will also play a big part in his getting back his ranch. Before the book is over Ruthy will find herself 'swept away' by Luke and it is time well spent watching these two banter back and forth and arrive at a deep and abiding love, all in the midst of a war between evil and good.

There is also the story of a woman married to the wrong man who finds her life threatened by his brutality and the town doctor who very much wants to save her from being beat to death. This is the story that I believe will be the main emphasis in book two, "Fired Up". Looking forward to enjoying myself in another good Texas story set in 1868 by an author who has the gift of writing characters you can't help buy enjoy. ( )

"5 out of 5 stars!! This witty, funny, adventurous novel keeps you on your toes with it no nonsense style group of men, who are as close as brothers, trying to bring law and order to a wayward town."

I considered this a fair read. I've read Mary Connealy's work before so I had some expectations. While the characters are pretty well built up, I just found the story itself weak at various points. I'm not sure I would have matched Ruthie up with Luke in the story line, but whatever. Not really sure if I'll even keep this one on my Kindle. ( )
