About Swept Away:
When a cowboy focused on revenge encounters a woman determined to distract him, there's going to be trouble in Texas!
Swept away when her wagon train attempts a difficult river crossing, Ruthy MacNeil isn't terribly upset at being separated from the family who raised her. All they've ever done is work her to the bone. Alive but disoriented, she's rescued by Luke Stone...so unfortunately, there are more chances to die in her immediate future.
Luke is on a mission to reclaim the ranch stolen from his family. But the men currently on the property won't let it go without a fight. Luke plans to meet up with friends who will help him take back the land, and since he can't just leave Ruthy in the middle of nowhere, she's going to have to go with him.
But the more time Luke spends around the hardworking young woman, the more he finds himself thinking of things besides revenge. Will Ruthy convince him to give up his destructive path and be swept away by love?

My Take: What a great start to a new series. I have been really enjoying books about historical Texas and this book is no exception. This book is set a few years after the Civil War and the main character Luke is headed home to reclaim his rightful claim to his ranch which his father had sent him the deed for. Unfortaunately an evil man has killed his father and laid claim to the land and is not so willing to give up what he has claimed. On the way to get the land Luke finds a girl who was swept away from her traveling party. He names her Rosie because of her hair but her name is Ruthie. Will Luke get his land back? Will he and Ruthie come together and realize that they love each other? There are some other questions that need answers in this book but you will need to read it to find out.
If you like historical fiction especially the time period after the Civil War then you will like this book. I would also recommend it if you just want to read a good story with high entertainment value.
I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from Litfuse.
