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.

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.

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..

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!

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.

Nothing made Michael Damion more upset than people that hate him. And that is how this begins. ***** "Listen, Lilly. We gotta help. He's our best FRIEND." Shaun Wilson said. Lilly Calskins rolled her eyes. "Fine, Michael, but if those Deaths catch us-" Michael rolled his eyes. "I'm sure they'll be pleased to meet you." He retorted. Lilly shot him a furious look, but said nothing. Shaun's little sister, Lanie got up. "Hello!" She said. She shot an enormous smile at Michael. Michael didn't smile back; instead he smiled up at Mrs. Wilson. "I think we'd better be packing." And with those words, they went upstairs, grabbed each a trunk (not owning much, the trunks were reasonably small) and hopped out the open window. She may of thought that they were all living together, which was the truth, sort of. But none of their parents (Michael had none; he quite comfortably stayed with the Wilsons) had known until the three had gotten a package from their Hogwarts teacher, Professor McGonagall, when they were each 11. She had sent another letter a day ago. She had told them that since they were in their last years, they couldn't come back, because of Deaths. Bellatrix Lestrange was probably sitting in her office right now, cackling. Hogwarts had plenty of students. They didn't have the Trace on anymore anyway. Michael patted his wand in his pocket. They each Apparated to 44 West Sundown Street, the place had been handed down to him from his dead parents. "Roomy." Shaun said. He flung his stuff down. Lilly frowned and set her stuff down. "How are we going to get around?" Shaun grinned and held up an Invisibility Cloak. "It'll do," Michael said. Of course, it did do, but getting into town was like getting past a security guard in broad daylight. The minute they got into the bakery, Deaths had bumped into them. Chasing them to the nearest bathroom, Michael, Lilly and Shaun were trapped. "Accio Wand!" She and Shaun screamed as the wand flew. "Obliviate!" Michael and Lilly screamed. Easy enough, they walked through town, getting food. Paying 50 Galleons for all the food, they manage to bring it all to the house. Lilly had wrapped her arms around Shaun. "You got my drift! I thought I was doing it alone!" Shaun turned bright red, and Michael got a little pink when she hugged him. Suddenly a small house-elf peeked out. "Mally has got new master!" He cried, and Michael and Shaun stifled a laugh. "Michael Damion." The little elf said. "Master." Shaun and Michael burst out in laughter, but Lilly shook the small elf's hand. Shaun and Michael wiped their eyes. Mally heard a pound and screamed, "DEATHS!" Deaths had knocked the door open, ready for a fight. *****
