In Too Deep Review

This week, the

In Too Deep
Bethany House (February 1, 2012)
Mary Connealy

Each time I think Mary Connealy can't possibly find another plausible reason to have two people hoisted into an arranged marriage I'm wrong. And there are always kids to add to the fun and chaos. This time, Ethan Kincaid wakes up one morning a bachelor and goes to bed married to Audra Gilliland and her two young children. Audra needs protection from the men after her deceased husband, and her children need protection from Ethan's brother who ambles into all kinds of scrapes. In 1866 life is rough on the Colorado frontier, but not as rough as trying to fall in love with someone you barely know. With doses of humor and traces of danger, the author draws the two together while also providing plenty of obstacles. And through the story's twists and turns, the two have to decide whether they will risk trusting their darkest moments to the other. This is another great book in a line of others from Mary.

She is also the author of; Black Hills Blessing a 3-in-1 collection of sweet contemporary romances, Nosy in Nebraska, a 3-in-1 collection of cozy romantic mysteries and she's one of the three authors contributing to Alaska Brides with her Carol Award Winning historical romance Golden Days.


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?
