Additional Information

Laughter, Romance, and Action Abound in This New Series from Mary Connealy

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.

I got this book late this morning and was finished with it by this evening. It was an exciting book from start to finish. Luke and Ruthey made quite the pair. Both very determined people. One to getaway from the people she was with. The other to get back the ranch that was stolen from him and to get the man who killed his pa. Luke had good friends in Dare, Vince, Jonas and Big John. Flint Greer was a really bad man. Glynna got hooked up with the wrong man. I was happy when Dare learned of her plight she needed a man who would treat her right. That all comes out in the next book. It was nice to see Ruthey and Luke married before all the bad came to a head. Because Ruthey or Rosie as Luke called her needed to save her man. It was a good thing she did too. Saving him and also Glynna and her kids. This maybe the first book I read by Mary Connealy and she did a great job. I'm anxious to read about Dare and Glynna's love story also the one involving Vince as well. I hope... Read more
Enjoyed the set up of the story but it started to drag halfway through. Starts with a small cast of chars but halfway it doubles the roster. Following the stories of several characters grew tiresome, as many of them weren't engaging. I kept flipping past repetitive scenes to get to the story of the two main characters. I found that the theme of this book is repetition; in that I was reminded every other page of what was established previously. I swear near the end I was reminded of folks actions and injuries at every page.

Overall it's well written but pacing is slow. Was very interested in the beginning but falters halfway and didn't recover for me. I struggled to come back and finish. Does have a happily ever after ending if you are looking for that.
"Swept Away" is a really well written, enjoyable book with lots of wonderful characters. Not only did I love the hero, Luke, and the heroine, Ruthy, but I also thoroughly enjoyed the secondary characters of Luke's friends, especially Vince and Dare. When Ruthy's parents died she was taken in by the family who owned the neighboring farm. During the years since then, the Reinhardts have treated Ruthy cruelly and worked her worse than a servant. When the wagon train in which the family is traveling West gets washed away by a flood flash, Ruthy is separated from the despicable family. Days later, Luke finds her floating in the river.

Luke is on his way home to reclaim his ranch that has been stolen by Flint Greer, the man he thinks has also murdered his father. Luke expects big trouble before he can reclaim his land. He can't leave Ruthy behind, but neither can he take the time to take her anywhere other than where he is headed. Consequently, Ruthy travels with Luke to... Read more
