In 1866 Colorado, Ethan Kincaid agrees to a marriage of convenience with the same casual disregard he gives every decision. Audra Gilliland, young mother of two, accepts his proposal because she wants to stop being a burden to her newly married stepdaughter. And suddenly both of them are in far deeper than they'd planned.

Ethan doesn't expect Audra to affect him so profoundly, and when she begins to, he's terrified of the pain he's felt before when someone he loved was seriously injured on his watch. He's determined that his new wife will do as he says so he can keep her safe from the dangers that lurk on their ranch. Audra has been cared for all her life by one man or another--and they've done a poor job of it. Now she's planning to stand up for herself. And her new husband had better agree or get out of her way!

What will it take to transform two wayward hearts fearful of getting in too deep into two trusting hearts ready to risk falling deeply in love?

Watch the book trailer:

When I pick up a book by Mary Connealy, I know I'm in for a fun read! She creates characters that find their way into your heart as surely as they find themselves sparring and sparking! This is the second book in the series about the Kincaid Brides, but there is plenty of danger to temper the potential for romance between Ethan & Audra. The relationships between the brothers are so authentic; they drive each other nuts and are about ready to come to blows until someone threatens one of them or their women, and then they are each other's best ally. This is a wonderful sequel to Rafe & Julia's story in Out of Control, and I can't wait to see how the series ends with the release of Over the Edge in August.

I read Doctor in Petticoats, which I found at our local library. I just finished (yesterday) Petticoat Ranch. I am glad I found this author, I enjoy her books

I have never read Mary Connealy and I have always wanted to! Her books do look like they'd be fun to read. I will just have to do it sometime.
