Julia Gilliland has always been interested in the natural world around her. She particularly enjoys studying the fossils and formations in the magnificent cave near her father's house. The cave seems plenty safe--until the day a mysterious intruder steals the rope she uses to climb out.
Rafe Kincaid is a man used to being in control--of himself, his brothers, and his family's ranch. The last thing he expects is to find a woman trapped in the cavern on his land--or to be forced to kiss her!
Rafe is more intrigued by Julia than any woman he's ever known. But when their developing relationship threatens a reconciliation with his brothers, will Rafe have to choose between his family and this new love that could heal his troubled heart and secure his happiness?
Out of Control
About The Author:
Mary Connealy writes fun and lively "romantic comedy with cowboys" for the inspirational market. She is the author of the successful Lassoed in Texas, Montana Marriages, and Sophie's Daughters series, and her novel Calico Canyon was nominated for a Christy Award. She lives on a ranch in eastern Nebraska with her husband, Ivan, and has four grown daughters.
I absolutely LOVED Out Of Control! If you are a fan of cowboy/historical fiction, you will definitely enjoy this one! With a great variety of characters including Julia, Audra, and Rafe, you will experience romance, mystery, and hearing about issues including mental illness, gambling, and the ultimate importance of letting go and letting God have control over all our lives! This is the first book in the Kincaid Brides Series, and I cannot wait to read book 2, In Too Deep. The writing of this book was very well done, and the development of the characters shows the real strong will that women of that time period needed to have in order to survive. The faith aspect of the book was not "in your face" but loved the message that God is in control, even when all around us we feel control slipping away. We just need to lean on Him, just as Rafe, Julia and the rest of the characters in Out Of Control did.
A great read that I highly recommend!
