Ruthie MacNeil dreads reaching California, for her adopted parents have decided that’s when she will have to marry their son. She is literally swept down the river when the water level suddenly rises several feet.
Luke Stone rescues her many miles from where she entered the water. Friends await him at his childhood town in Broken Arrow and he can’t just leave Ruthie beside the river. He can’t delay either, because he plans to take back his father’s stolen land.
Ruthie refuses to sit idly while the man she loves faces danger. The spunky woman has a mind of her own.
Connealy has woven a multi-layered historical romance that kept me turning pages—a great read!
