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. Download and start listening now!
