Official Blog of Author Courtney Rice Gager (aka me). Written from my office (which just so happens to be a comfy chair in the corner of my kid's playroom). Mostly literary musings, with the occasional "guess how many cookies I had for breakfast" confession. Because we're all friends here.

Blog Tour and Review: Runaway by Renee Donne
Runaway by Renee Donne
Release Date: July 29, 2014
After Marianne discovers her bankrupt stepfather sold her into marriage to the highest bidder, she flees Philadelphia and heads west to start a new life.
Unfortunately for her danger follows. First, a stage coach accident leaves her stranded in the middle of nowhere – with an injured driver. And henchmen, hired by her spurned would-be husband, are hot on her trail, threatening to return her to Philadelphia and the man who is determined to own her.
Just when things seem hopeless, Marianne is rescued by a handsome, cowboy who offers temporary refuge. Knowing she can’t refuse, yet wary of his intentions, Marianne finds herself drawn to this quiet, enigmatic hero. But is he someone she can trust?
I began reading Runaway on a Sunday and finished it that day. It's a short, relaxing weekend read, and the author does a good job of pacing the story in a a way that makes it hard to put down. Even if you aren't a history buff (ahem, me), you'll be able to attach to the story because the characters' emotions have a modern and relatable feel. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a clean, romantic read that keeps you in suspense!
