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?

My thoughts:

Ever read a book with a stolen fortune, outlaws, marriage of convenience, and a cavern? Want to? Then read In Too Deep!

Back in November of 2011, I read Out of Control - that was the first book I read by Mary Connealy! She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, and if all of her books are as good as these two, I will HAVE to read them! :)

I could hardly wait to read In Too Deep, since Ethan Kincaid was the character that intrigued me most from Out of Control. Reading Ethan's story and getting to know him  (and the other characters) was just fantastic!

In Out of Control we learn that Audra's first husband stole a fortune, and in In Too Deep, there are outlaws after it! This added a lot of adventure/danger and it's just another reason why I loved this book!

Ethan made me laugh many times in this book. He was just so funny! I loved learning more about the reasons why he smiles a lot and seeing his character grow.

There is still another book in The Kincaid Brides series (I wish there were more!), Over the Edge, and I am anxiously awaiting it! In Too Deep gives some hints as to what to expect, and I'm pretty sure it will be great!

While I recommend reading Out of Control (because it was so good) before you read In Too Deep , I don't think it is entirely necessary. In Too Deep is great on its own!

I loved In Too Deep - it's now a favorite of mine. I recommend it if you like romance, historical, or western novels!

  1. Great review! This book was amazing and yes her other books are just as good!

    1. I really want to read them... unfortunately my library doesn't have them. :(

  2. Melanie, ask the library to get them. Or get them through an Interlibrary loan program. Or ask your church to get them, if you have a church library. Or if you don't have a church library find a church that has a library.

    Or ask for them for your birthday. Just do NOT give up. :)

    1. Lol, I'll have to see where I can get them!

      Thanks for commenting, Mary. I can hardly wait to read your next book "Over the Edge"! :)
