Click on the book to look inside :)

Rafe Kincaid controls everything in his life...until he meets Julia.
Julia Gilliland has always been interested in the natural world around her. She particularly enjoys studying the fossils and formations in the magnificent cave near her father's house. The cave seems plenty safe-until the day a mysterious intruder steals the rope she uses to climb out.

Rafe Kincaid is a man used to being in control-of himself, his brothers, and his family's ranch. The last thing he expects is to find a woman trapped in the cavern on his land-or to be forced to kiss her!

Rafe is more intrigued by Julia than any woman he's ever known. But when their developing relationship threatens a reconciliation with his brothers, will Rafe have to choose between his family and this new love that could heal his troubled heart and secure his happiness?

 The book opens with Julia being trapped in a cave, with some madman on the loose.
As Rafe is riding past the beginning of all his problems, he hears this distressed voice asking for help...Little did he know, that his life would never be the same from that point on! As he tries to conquer his fears, he climbs down into the deep dark whole, all for a 'damsel in distress'.
Julia knows that she's been rescued, but by who? With it being so dark, she had no idea...Once out of the cave, Rafe takes her back to his house, before taking her home. And that's when it goes for a new turn!
As Rafe tries to take control of Julia and her stepmother's lives, he learns that maybe he shouldn't be in charge of everything...like a woman giving birth? :)
Can the two who have to have everything their way, learn to put their wants aside and just love each other?

Great Book!!! I know I reviewed this series out of order :) but It was really good! And they are literally like days between the two books, so that makes it super fun to read in one sitting :). I highly suggest getting this book and snuggling up with some Sweet Tea (since it's summer) and enjoying this book out in the sun :)

Happy Reading!

In Too Deep by Mary Connealy
The Kincaid Brides Book 2 (click to read excerpt)

Back Cover:
Ethan Kincaid proposes marriage with the same detachment he gives every decision. Audra Gilliand accepts his proposal so she can stop being a burden to her newly married stepdaughter.
But Ethan never expected Audra to affect him so profoundly, and it terrifies him. Someone he loved once was seriously injured on his watch, and he won't let that happen again. If Audra will just do as he says, he can keep her safe from the dangers that lurk on the 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!
Can two fearful hearts-wary of getting in too deep-become two trusting hearts, willing to let go and fall in love?

Another great book from Mary Connealy! When I first read this book, I had not read the first one in the series. And yet I was able to follow the book perfectly! That is one thing I love about Mary, her books may be a series but if you had to, they could be read alone. The first one in this book is about Audra's stepdaughter, but when reading In Too Deep, all you wonder is 'How did they fall in love?" but it's not like a BIG part of the plot in this book. Now if your anything like me, when you first read 'stepdaughter' on the back of the book and know that she is married...you wonder how old is Audra...well she's about the same age :) so it's a great little twist to the normal story.
The Kincaid men all live in Rawhide where women are scarce and 'peace and quiet' are scarcer...So when the Gilliland woman are 'found' the Kincaid men take it upon themselves to protect this 'frail women' out in the west. Ethan's older brother Rafe has decided that Ethan would be the perfect husband for Audra and father to her two daughters...now all he has to do is convince the two of it. Especially now that he is happily married...and wants some privacy.
Audra thinks Rafe has gone nuts, but she can see no other way to live other than marry Ethan. And Ethan has no Idea what his brother is doing...the last thing he wants is to have to have feelings about another human being...since the last time he did that it went terribly wrong in his eyes. And on top of it all there are people looking for his brand spanking new wife's dead husband's money...can it get any more complicated than that??? Or can it? :)

Great book! I highly recommend it, and actually after i finished this one, I had to go out and get the first one in the series (review coming soon!)
