Luke is the middle Grandson in the Malloy family. He is a handsome cowboy with a bit of wild side. He has that heart of gold that shines through when he is around those he loves. His adventurous side finds him alone in the mountains with a head wound. Thankfully Ingrid Marrow just happened to be out checking on her herd of cows when she hears the commotion that caused Luke's fall.
Ingrid is one of those ladies that I couldn't help but admired from the beginning. She sweet, loves her family, smart, independent, and courageous. This lady has the world on her shoulders and she's been holding it up pretty much on her own.
Ingrid could use some help, even if she doesn't think so, with everything that is happening around the ranch. Her mother is a wild child herself and spends most of her time running around searching for a good time. Ingrid has pretty much raised her adorable little sister Lily and has done a great job. Lily is a sweet girl that loves her big sister and quickly befriends the wounded stranger, Luke. I think some of my favorite scenes in this book are when Luke plays Go Fish with Lily.
There are unexplainable things going on around the ranch that leads to plenty of drama and suspense that had me flipping pages quickly. The romance between Ingrid and Luke is sweet and attraction is smoldering hot with fireworks ready to fly when they are alone.
Luke by R.C. Ryan has all the wonderful things that make a good read. There is drama, suspense, family interaction, romance, sweet and steamy. The characters are alluring with a riveting story line that kept me enthralled from the first page all the way to the end.
This is part of The Malloys of Montana Series but stands on it's own just fine. I haven't read the previous books and I certainly enjoyed this one. I didn't feel like I was missing any important details to take away from my reading pleasure.
I know I will certainly be looking for more books by R.C. Ryan in the future.
I was given the opportunity to read this terrific story and it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts with you.
