    RUNAWAY is the second instalment in Sandy James¿s historical wes

    RUNAWAY is the second instalment in Sandy James’s historical western, romance Safe Havens series focusing on a group of friends and family in Montana.  This is Cassie Shay and Ty Bishop’s story –one that advances the series approximately four years. 
    The premise follows Cassie as she uncovers a plot to murder Ty and his best friend Jake Curtis.  Jake is the son of Grace Morgan and has been invited to meet his extended Shay family on the west coast. When Jake and Ty encounter a life or death situation, it will be a young twenty year old woman-Cassie Shay-who rescues the pair from their untimely demise.  Cassie is a woman on the run but Ty will ensure that the only place she runs to will be to Montana –with him.
    Ty’s attraction to Cassie is immediate although they are from different backgrounds, different class and different education.  As they make their way across country, Ty begins to fall for the feisty Cassie Shay but getting his family and friends back home to accept her will be another problem-all together. Cassie comes from one of the most hated families and no one is willing to open their arms a woman whose family has threatened everyone they love.
    Sandy James pulls the reader into a romantic storyline about two people from different walks of life-Ty believes he is not worthy of Cassie’s love and affection and, Cassie believes that she has placed everyone in danger with her presence and connection to the Shay family.
    RUNAWAY is a story of heartbreak and betrayal; family and friends; love and letting go.  Many of the previous storyline characters play secondary roles as well as the introduction of the next story hero-Caleb Young. 
    If you like a romantic storyline about a hard working cowboy and a strong willed heroine then RUNAWAY is the perfect read for a lazy afternoon.

    more from this reviewer

    Cassandra Shay is running from the only life she has ever known.

    Cassandra Shay is running from the only life she has ever known. Her grandfather has “sold” her into a marriage arrangement to a cruel and abusive man. During her escape, Cassie over hears a plot to murder her 1/2 brother and his friend. Cassie makes a pit stop and risks life and limb to save Jake Curtis, her illegitimate brother , and Ty Bishop. 

    Ty is instantly captivated by the beauty that came to his rescue. Believing he is indebted to Cassie for the rescue, he decides to bring Cassie with him when he returns to his home. Unfortunately Cassie is a Shay and her desire for acceptance is quickly squashed by the Shay family's reputation. 

    To protect Ty and his loved ones, Cassie decides she must keep Ty at arms length...Ty has other plans.

    I was immediately captured by the spit fire known as Cassandra Shay. Beaten down and surviving such a difficult family life, Cassie's ability to persevere and her positive attitude shines like a bright beacon through out the story. I instantly formed an emotional connection to Cassie, personally feeling her heart ache and passion. For all of Cassie's sweetness, she still can pull out some whoop butt when it is required.

    Ty is a swoon worthy, alpha male that will make you drool. Even though he battles with the idea of love, he shows it to his adopted fami;y, friends and especially Cassie. 

    The sexual tension can be cut with a knife. Sweet and Smoldering is the best way to describe Cassie and Ty's relationship.

    I can't leave out Drew. Wow, what a great person and friend. I loved how Sandy James brought such a extraordinary character into this book.

    I utterly enjoyed Runaway. It was a fabulous story, with the perfect balance of burning HOT romance and a wonderful historical fiction based storyline. Pack with brilliant characters that are realistic and relatable, I found Runaway fast paced but still had a descriptive writing style that made you feel like you are visually seeing the story unfold. I highly recommend Runaway! 

    I received this ARC of Runaway from Sandy James in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication September 9, 2013.

    Liked It!

    Book Two of Ms. James series was well done... I give the author an A+ for originality of the story lines... Just enough of the things that make a book interesting... Romance, suspense, well developed characters and a fast moving plot...Ty and Cassie were from different worlds... Yet, they fit together in a wonderful joyous way... Highly recommend this series..

    surprising

    I just didn't expect to be in the pre motor vehicle era. I would usually not bother with a book that is not at least current but this was a good story

    Very good story. A bit to much sex for me. The book really did not need that much. Took away from the story. And, the story was very good. I would recommend this book, though!

    Good read.

    This is my first book by this author. It is about 850 or so pages. The lead male is an alpha-male and the female is brave. There is lots of adventure tension to keep you interested. I did not like the male friend the female chose who had a preference for men. I probably wont buy anymore of this authors book but the writing was pretty good.

    Born to be ¿ree {part 1} By: Horses&Faith

    Zoe
    I sigh as I get up out of bed and make breakfeast for my family. Another day of work again. I silently pour hot water into the oatmeal bowl and then spoon it into bowls.
    I hurriedly eat mine then run to the master's house and quietly sing the song so they would let me in. One of the older slaves, Liza opened the door. "Hurry child! Yer chores await." She says. The misstress is sitting on a loveseat when I come through the door.
    "Good. You are bright and early."
    "Yes ma'am."
    "Start right away by scrubbing this downstairs floor. I want it SPOTLESS. You hear? Some friends are coming over." I go right to work. After about ten minutes , I stop because my arms. After all, I am only 13.
    Mistress stands up comes over and slaps me! It was because I wasn't working. I scrub, and scrub, and scrub. Then I quietly say, "I'm done ma'am." And she checks.
    "Good." She puffed. "It is almost breakfeast-time. Go!" I scramble to my feet and run to the kitchen to help Liza.
    "Here to help Liza." She grunts and points to some dough that needs to be rolled out. I grab the closest rolling pin and work.

    Enjoy!
