In Too Deep

My Thoughts:

Book 2 in the "Kincaid Brides" is full of danger, adventure, and takes us into the hearts of Ethan and Audra. I have anxiously awaited the release of this story and am happy to say ~ I absolutely LOVED IT!!

The Kincaid Brothers are good men! They can be VERY stubborn at times, and even bullheaded at others. There is nothing more important to them, however, than family!

Ethan & Audra have allowed the hurts and circumstances of their past to set the stage for their future. Ethan seems to be constantly striving to keep anything from happening to Audra and it makes her crazy. No man has ever cared for her the way she hoped for, nor let her stand on her own, so why would she believe Ethan would be any different?? When Ethan proposes she accepts knowing that at the very least, her children will be safe & protected. However, this "marriage of convenience," turns out to be far more than either one of them expected.

In the first book of this series "In Too Deep," the mystery story-line is set and the plot thickens in this book! Will these two find the answers they are looking for? Will they finally let go of their past and allow their hearts to love fully?

I highly recommend this series! Mary Connealy is definitely joining the list of my favorite authors! Thank you Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest opinion!

Book 3 "Over the Edge"
will be available in August!! I can't wait!!!

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?
