Out of Control by Mary Connealy

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Out Of Control
Bethany House; Original edition (August 1, 2011)
Mary Connealy

Julia Gilliland has always been interested in the natural world around her. She particularly enjoys her outings to the cavern near her father's homestead, where she explores for fossils and formations, and plans to write a book about her discoveries. The cave seems plenty safe--until the day a mysterious intruder steals the rope she uses to find her way out.

Rafe Kincaid has spent years keeping his family's cattle ranch going, all without help from his two younger brothers, who fled the ranch--and Rafe's controlling ways--as soon as they were able. He's haunted by one terrible day at the cave on a far-flung corner of the Kincaid property, a day that changed his life forever. Ready to put the past behind him, he plans to visit the cave one final time. He sure doesn't expect to find a young woman trapped in one of the tunnels--or to be forced to kiss her!

Rafe is more intrigued by Julia than any woman he's ever known, but how can he overlook her fascination with the cave he despises? And when his developing relationship with Julia threatens his chance at reconciliation with his brothers, will he be forced to choose between the family bonds that could restore his trust and the love that could heal his heart?

Ashley’s 2 cents . . . I LOVED this book. Mom received it in the mail about two weeks ago. I saw the cover and stole it right away. (I know never to judge a book by its cover but if a book has a good cover, I’m quicker to read it). And Out of Control has a cover that pulled me in.

As soon as I started reading the book, I was drawn in and couldn’t stop until I was at the end. It’s an amazing read. Took me only one day to finish. I don’t read historical fiction very much anymore, but I knew I had to read this one.

Oh! Since I’ve read this book I’ve read both Calico Canyon and Cowboy Christmas, also by Mary Connealy. (They were on my bookshelf to read, stuff we had picked upbefore, that had never gotten read). These two are also very much recommend.

If you like a good, historical fiction book, this is much recommended. I can’t wait to read more books by this great author.
