ABOUT THE BOOK:
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 mother loves Mary's writing and has told me numerous times that I need to read some of her books. I finally gave in and signed up to read this book through CFBA. I will have to tell my mother she should have nagged me much more incessantly.
The story was quite a page turner...with it's engaging story line that includes a hunky set of brothers, ladies who can hold their own when things get tough, humor, intrigue, and romance that sizzles so much your fingers will be warm just turning the pages. I also liked that the title carries a double meaning...with both the caverns being central to the story and a newlywed couple who aren't sure about what they've gotten themselves into.
This is definitely a winner of a story...and I believe I'm Mary Connealy's newest fan!
My thanks to Bethany House Publishers for providing a copy for review through CFBA.
