Jane has been through a lot in the short time before she stumbles onto Leo's ranch now she is safe but has no idea of who she is or what she was running from. Leo had no idea how having Jane around would change him and make him realize what he was missing, even though they are both fighting their attraction for different reasons one thing remains the same who was Jane running from and why is she making it so difficult for Leo to try and find out who she really is. There is mystery, suspense, laughter, attraction, frustration, murder and animals especially one wee dog called Ollie that will keep you hooked and needing to know how things end not only to find out who Jane really is but also for her and Leo's, but for why she had been beaten and held captive!!

I haven't read any of the Colton books so I didn't know what to expect with this book! It was fantastic! Of course that probably had to do with the author! Anna writes amazing characters and stories but I'm a sucker for amnesia stories, if they are written right and this one certainly is! Imagine waking up in a old garden shed, obviously put there by someone meaning to do you harm because you are tied up, your clothes are ripped and you are in bad shape physically but the worst thing is you can't remember anything - not even your name! However, you KNOW you have to get out of this shed somehow because a bad person could come back and kill you! This is how the book begins and it just gets better! The woman ends up on Leo's property and what a guys he is! I've decided he has become one of my favorite heroes! He calls her "Jane" since she doesn't know her name and he carefully takes care of her on his ranch. He is such a gentle soul. He does everything to help Jane and is so careful with her. The secondary characters in this book are fantastic too! I enjoyed every page and was sorry to see it end because I wanted to see how things went for the two of them through the years - just the romantic in me!!

COLTON ON THE RUN by Anna J. Stewart is the nine book in the beloved The Coltons of Roaring Springs series and centers around a rancher and the amnesia victim he finds on his property.  Skye is wrapped immediately around the reader's heart as she brings her fear and peril to life in front of our eyes as the book opens. She fights her way to freedom and endears herself as a strong woman who has every reason to be terrified of her own shadow. Leo and his dog Ollie are going about life on the ranch when they're met with the surprise of a lifetime. They both quickly fall under Skye's spell as they will do anything to protect her and help her find out who she is and get her home since she has amnesia. I highly recommend this breath catching story of danger and intrigue to anyone who loves a story heavy on intrigue and heart. The action is intense and descriptive and the bond between Sky and Leo is spot on. Really enjoying this series and looking forward to more to come.

Word of warning up front: I couldn’t put this story down, once I started it. Lots of suspense, intrigue, and hold-your-breath moments where I never knew what would happen next. Just plan your reading time because you’ll want to keep reading until the end. No spoilers and I won’t retell the story as the author does a much better job but I can tell you what I loved, enjoyed, and melted with in this story. Leo Slattery is back “home” at his grandparents’ ranch after working in Alaska. I loved his character – he is strong, has a strong love for his now gone family, and at heart, is lonely. One night he finds “Jane Doe” in his barn and his life takes some amazing turns. “Jane Doe” is actually Skye Colton. When she meets Leo, she has been kidnapped, badly beaten and has amnesia. She is scared, hurting, but finds help and safety with Leo. Such a simple explanation for the story but it truly has so much heart and love as Leo helps “Jane” recover physically as well as mentally. It is all about the slow and steady buildup of their relationship for me and how protective and loving Leo is to “Jane”. He has deep hurts in his past and he needs to heal as well and he is so very good to, and with, Jane. The real test for these two is when Jane’s memory starts to return. They both need to learn to trust, and be open, before they can get to an HEA. Truly great read and a wonderful story. Remember, it will keep you guessing thru the entire story while keeping you on the edge of your seat.

A beloved member of the Colton household is missing. Where is Skye? A mysterious woman is found hiding in newcomer Leo Slattery’s barn. Who is she? ‘Jane’ has amnesia, so Leo doesn’t want to act on the feelings he has for her until she knows who she is. Once she regains the memory of herself, but not of what happened, her terror of strangers is heightened. Throw these two together and sparks ignite. Can Leo keep ‘Jane’ safe? Should he keep her identity secret once he knows who she is, since she was kidnapped and terrorized? Who would hurt her like that? Will their relationship survive? What a great story. I was kept on the edge of my seat and had difficulty figuring out who had it in for Jane/Skye and why. A good thriller and although I’m usually clued in, and can guess who the assailant is quite early, I wasn’t certain of this one until almost the end!!

She came to alone in a decrepit shed, bound and gagged. What had happened? Where was she, and who was she? Then she ran from that place as fast as she could. Leo Slattery has taken over his late grandfather's farm after spending years working in Alaska. He might not have had the time to look at everything on the ranch, but a frightened woman hadn't been part of the deal! His demeanour inspires trust, and his "Jane Doe" confesses that she can't remember anything. He tells her she should see a doctor, then go to the police, but judging by her terrified reaction to his suggestions, he reluctantly agrees to wait until she's ready. Amnesia is my catnip, it's often hit-and-miss, and COLTON ON THE RUN is most definitely a hit! The very cinematic beginning captured my imagination right away: I felt our heroine's fear and terror as well as her frustration at her inability to recall anything.The reader doesn't know either and finds out as the story unfolds, which I liked a lot. I wondered if it made a difference to those who had read all the previous installments, with what they knew of Skye Colton. I enjoyed discovering who she was as Leo did, she grew a lot because of her ordeal, and I love how resourceful and clever she was; check out that ending! The plot is meticulously structured, the tension palpable on every page as the mystery is carefully resolved. I find COLTON ON THE RUN a bit difficult to review adequately. I was completely absorbed by the story, I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough, I enjoyed getting to know Skye and Leo and watching their relationship evolve. I loved it! I guess it's one of those books that elicit a: "Read it, it's fabulous!". The amnesia was expertly handled, and Leo is a marvellous hero. Just one thing niggled me: although the character is beautifully fleshed out, Leo's colouring is never mentioned; in any case, I went with the look of the cover model, who is one fine looking dude. COLTON ON THE RUN is a quick and easy read, thanks to Ms. Stewart's flowing prose, authentic dialogues, and the sense of danger that was sustained throughout. Some secondary characters made a strong impression on me: Trapper, Deputy Bloom, Leo's dog Ollie, and Miss D and her knowledge of social media. If the book description appeals to you, don't hesitate, this is a great romantic suspense and one of the best featuring an amnesia trope!
