“Are you sure, baby?”

The father of the bride-to-be reads the confusion on his daughter’s face. Just before her walk down the aisle, Judi Monroe overhears a conversation that indicates she might be making a big mistake. Escaping her socialite wedding in Lake Forest, Illinois, she drives west to an isolated corner of Wyoming. After crashing her car, she’s rescued by a lone rider – or Ranger, as she fleetingly recalls -- a rugged rancher named Thomas Vance. Judi needs time to puzzle out the predicament she’d dodged in Illinois. But here she is, in the arms of a doubting Thomas, a man with a strong jaw, deep-green eyes and a commanding presence.

When Judi evades his personal questions, not to mention his penetrating gaze, Thomas dismisses his half-sister Becky's diagnosis of amnesia. Judi seizes on this foot in the Diamond V door, staying on as a caretaker for Thomas’ beloved grandmother. Judi finds a family on the Diamond V, even as her masquerade as a home health aide slowly unravels. She falls hard for her horse whisperer, fearing her secret will cause him to bolt from her life. As for Thomas, he knows this impostor is lying, another outsider betraying his family. Yet he's still drawn to this sexy, independent, smart woman who has lassoed his heart.

The Runaway Bride by Patricia McLinn The Wedding Series Book Four Judi Monroe just wanted to have a marriage like her family and friends had. To love and be loved. She thought she was headed down that road to marital bliss until everything changed...right before she walked down the aisle to her waiting groom. She became a bride on the run. And then she became a different woman. Thomas Vance didn't trust the new so-called health aide that came to help Gran. She was hiding something and he was going to find out what it was. No way would he follow his father's footsteps and fall for a beautiful stranger who showed up on his ranch. Loved this story and the series. Each book brings some of the previous characters back. I couldn't set this book down as it pulled me in from beginning to end. And, for me anyway, I would advise having tissues nearby. **Sexual content
