Overview

In 1866 Colorado, Ethan Kincaid agrees to a marriage of convenience with the same casual disregard he gives every decision. Audra Gilliland, young mother of two, accepts his proposal because she wants to stop being a burden to her newly married stepdaughter.

And suddenly both of them are in far deeper than they'd planned.

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?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This second installment in the Kincaid Brides series continues the Connealy tradition of cowboys, laughs, and love. Ethan Kincaid weds Audra Gilliland in a marriage of convenience orchestrated by his brother Rafe. Ethan brings a lifetime of hiding from the pain of his childhood, and Audra brings two young daughters from her first marriage. Her past, however, catches up when miscreants come looking for a fortune stolen by her first husband. Ethan’s past surfaces when he must face his greatest fear to save the woman he has come to love, and Audra must discover an inner strength she thought she’d never find. This tale is long on action—gunfights, fire, getting lost in caves—but short on depth as the drama and romance unfold lickity-split. Readers looking for a leisurely stroll through the Colorado countryside won’t find it here; those eager to explore the post–Civil War Colorado Territory will love riding headlong through this rollicking tale. Agent: Natasha Kern Literary Agency. (Feb.)

    Loved it!

    Book two picks up on the heals of book one. Ethan’s older brother Rafe is now married to Julia. Audra does not want to be a burden now that Julia is married and is thinking about heading back east to her uncaring father. Rafe will have none of that and come up with the idea that Ethan should marry her so she can be the house keeper at the Kincaid ranch that Ethan is now taking over. Before either of them have a chance to think they are wed. Heading back to the Kincaid ranch with crazy Seth in tow how will these two settle into married life. Will they find love after all?

    Mary Connealy has done it again! She is one of my favorite authors and she does not disappoint in this new book.

    What I liked: Everything! I really liked both Ethan and Audra in the first book maybe even more then Rafe and Julia. I could not wait to read their story. I love how the characters interact in this book. The humor had be laughing through out. I also love how Ethan and Audra start to care for each other and realize how much they need each other.

    What I did not like: Really not much. The only part of the story I was not really into was the head bad guy. It really seemed like it did not fit with this story. I am guessing we will hear more from him in the 3rd book. I just did not feel his chapters added anything to the main plot of the story.

    Over all I loved this book. I love how this author intertwines romance, comedy and suspense(bad guys) and creates characters you fall in love with. I could not put it down and wanted to cry when it was over. I can’t wait for book three which will finally tell Seth’s story and I can’t wait to meet Callie! August can’t come soon enough. This is a must read for all historical fiction lovers!

    My absolute favorite book in this series. Ethan is my kind of man. Ethan is drawn to Audra in the first book. I love how they marry in the
    beginning of the book and slowly learn to trust and love one another. Audra's toddler, Maggie takes an instant liking to Ethan and I love how he loves her and spends time with her. Children know who to trust and Maggie is quick to call him Papa.
    Audra finds out that she is a stronger women than she thinks she is. This book is funny and the characters are very believable. Even though this was my favorite after reading the first two books in the series, I could not wait to read the next one.
    You did it again, Mary. :)

    Ms.Connealy steals your heart again!

    Mary Connealy has been a favorite of mine among the Christian Fiction genre for some time now. I have loved every book that I've read by her, so far. So, I'm always excited to dive into a new one by the talented Ms. Connealy. Having read Out Of Control, book 1 of The Kincaid Brides, I couldn't wait for Ethan's story in In Too Deep. Like book 1, Ms. Connealy's detail to history is vivid and blended with rich inspiration and complex, heart-stealing characters. Ethan Kincaid's way of life is smile no matter what and it will be okay. He's hiding behind a wall of fear and pain, when it comes to his past and that cavern on his big brother, Rafe's land. He cares about no one except animals and Audra Gilliland's baby daughters. After a terrible accident in the past, Ethan deems himself unworthy of caring for anyone. He's too scared to go in too deep in the cavern for the fear consumes him. After all, it was were his baby brother Seth went crazy.....all because of him. So, how is gonna keep Audra Gilliland safe from the bad guys after he marries her to protect her? Audra Gilliland is a sweet character who was sold into marriage by her father and treated poorly by her husband. It's no wonder she just wants to stand on her own two feet and protect her daughters and prove she's strongly independent. But, instead, after the death of her first husband, she finds herself married to the middle (and very good looking!) middle Kincaid brother......and hunting down the money her first husband hid. Not to mention, she's finding herself falling in too deep in love with the amazing, tenderly sweet-hearted Ethan Kincaid. These two characters battle so much in this story. But, by going deep into the cavern, they prove that turning over all weakening fear to God, He will make it perfectly right. It's a truly powerful message! I definitely recommend this 5 Book worthy novel to everyone, however, I highly suggest you read it with book 1 to get the full Kincaid family story. This book will take you back to Rafe and Julia's story, introduces you to Ethan and Audra's life and gives you a glimpse of young Seth's story. If you love a story filled with inspiration, lots of love and humor, and an ending that leaves you hungering for more, don't hesitate for a minute to grab up this beautifully written novel. I can't wait to read the conclusion to the Kincaid Brides in Over The Edge! Amazingly great job,once again, Ms. Connealy! You've truly pleased this reader! *This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review*

    This is the second book in the Kinkaid Brides series by Mary. Wh

    This is the second book in the Kinkaid Brides series by Mary. While not strictly necessary to read Out of Control first, those who have will understand some of what’s going on a bit more readily as the storyline picks up just days after the first book ends.

    Ethan agrees to marry young mother, Audra, but has little understanding of what it means to be married. Other than his parents’ poor example, the only real “role models” he has is his older brother – who is married to Ethan’s new wife’s step-daughter and has been for a whopping few days.

    Audra is coming out of an abusive marriage to a man who cared more about his “cover” than he ever did about his wife or daughters. She’s tired of men running her life and agrees to the marriage only because she has to protect her girls.

    I absolutely loved this story.

    That’s not really surprising since I’ve loved every Mary book I’ve ever read [and I love Mary, too, but that's neither here nor there].

    I had surgery last week. More on that another day, but I needed something fun and not too heavy to read and Mary’s book fit the bill. I even made the hubby drive around town to find it [I couldn't! I was on narcotics!] =D.

    Ethan and Audra are wonderful! Ethan is wonderfully clueless about marriage and Audra is wonderfully willing to be wrong about marriage. Eventually.

    Her two little girls are adorable and I’m always impressed with how much Audra in particular, but Ethan and the others, too, are able to get done with a baby/toddler in arms.

    I think Mary has been taking lessons from Julie Lessman because there’s much more kissing in this one – and they were wonderful, too.

    Ethan has spent his life avoiding caring too deeply because when you care you can get hurt. Audra and the girls are about to make that impossible for him. Audra has to learn that sometimes it’s okay to let the man in her life take care of her – because this time he’s worthy of her trust.

    And when they finally allow themselves to feel everything for each other? Well, it’s wonderful.

    Even the bad guys – and especially, the bad gal – are well-written and worthy of a Mary Connealy plot line. They’ve got their work cut out for them with the Kinkaid brothers on the other side. And the Kinkaid brothers won’t just roll over.

    One of the other things Mary did wonderfully well was to use a geographic feature as a character in itself. The cavern is amazing as it comes to life – in the present and in the memories of Ethan and his brothers. It would be a wonderful place to see in a documentary/docu-drama on Discovery or the Travel Channel – but I don’t know that I’d be comfortable exploring it.

    The only down side to In Too Deep? The end. You know. Where it ends. Because it seems that this trilogy has a couple of overarching storylines that will draw them all together. And because Over the Edge doesn’t come out until August.

    Overall Rating: 9.25 out of 10 stars [because August is sooooooo far away!]

    This review has been brought to you by the letter W and the word of the day – wonderful.
