Series: Trouble in Texas, Book 1
Luke Stone is on his way to get his family’s ranch back from the thieving scoundrel who took it over after killing Luke’s pa. Before he reaches his destination, however, he finds a woman. She’s water-logged and bedraggled, sunburned and freckled, red-haired and bossy, and absolutely the busiest woman Luke has ever laid eyes on.
Ruthie MacNeil is glad to have survived the flash flood that killed her abusive “family.” She’s grateful to have been rescued by the handsome, hard-headed stranger, and only too happy to be whisked away and thrust into a new life--jam-packed with danger and excitement though it definitely is.
With the help of Luke’s four loyal friends, they set about reclaiming the Stone ranch, rescuing a beautiful battered wife, and falling…well, sort of scrabbling and furiously back pedaling…in love. Mary Connealy delivers a great story line and, as always, a wagonload of belly laughs. Delightful!
