Runaway Heart by Amity Lassiter

Ren Maddock wouldn't call herself a runaway, but when she's backed into a corner by a childhood she'd rather forget, she's chosen flight every time. With her teenage sister in tow, Ren picks Three Rivers, Colorado and hopes that it will provide them with the quiet, simple life she's been looking for. She doesn't expect responding to a job ad will have her suddenly wanting to break her only hard and fast rule: never lay down roots.

Dane Baylor already has his hands full running the family cattle operation when a tragic accident leaves him as his young nephew's legal guardian. Before long, he finds himself over his head and desperate not to betray the trust his brother put in him. He doesn't know how badly he needs Ren until she shows up and balances out not only his life but his heart.

For the first time in years, Ren feels safe, and despite her best efforts, believing in the happy life she could have with the man who offers her the love she's never known. But when her past comes knocking, threatening her new family and her new life, she may have no choice but to fight for everything she holds dear.

About the Author

Amity Lassiter lives in Eastern Canada with her herding dog, her barn cat, two horses and her Mister. She has loved telling stories her entire life and even before she could write could be found in her grandmother's basement, reciting fiction into an ancient cassette recorder.

The most influential author in Amity's life would be Peter S. Beagle, the author of The Last Unicorn, who introduced her to her first achingly impossible love story and made her believe in magic. She met, and shared the most surreal small talk with Beagle in May 2014.

She loves critters, coffee, and cowboys - and she still believes in unicorns.

I have had a recent string of great luck when selecting books to read. This is a story of two people in need finding that one person to live a happy life. There is only great joy after experiencing terrible sorrow. To be a single parent after tragedy makes the love between child and parent far sweeter and scary. For a man and a woman to face life as a single parent, you have to first put the needs of the child above your own. This was a story about finding the strength to put aside fear of being hurt or hurting to surrender to the love growing. This is a story of mystery and desperation to keep harm away. This is a story of the unconditional love of a real family, with real parenting. This is not cliffhanger. This is a story where it is safe to invest your time and heart. I recommend this story.

Enjoyable well written story. I read a lot while traveling and it was easy to lose myself in the story. I am looking forward to more books by Amity Lassiter.

Yes, Erin Hayes, I loved it! Loved the characters, loved that it made me smile, even laugh outloud a few times, loved the HEA and that it was a modern fairytale that was so well written, not too long, not too short, a lovely little tale! So good that I've tried to find the next book to see how Phillip fares but haven't been able to locate it. Thanks for a great read, I'll keep looking for your next book!

Everyone knows of someone that has had a rough childhood and the one child that was the strongest to take charge. This is one of those novels with a wonderful ending!

I really like this book when I started out. Then it got toward the end and it seems like the Author ran out of word count so they decided to stop the book. The end was so rushed it made the rest of the book seem trivial. Would've like to see to the end have a little more depth. Would have made it more worth it.

Short but worth it! Fell in love with the characters. There are parts in this book that I could relate to. The author knows how to pull you by emotion and reminds you of love

Sometimes surviving the School of Hardknocks takes more than just one person to give a guiding hand. Loved the book, hated the sex scenes.

A sweet, well written story with well defined likable characters.... Also sets things up well for Book II... Sometimes love happens where we least expect it... Ren was running to protect her sister from the wicked Mother... Finally she found a place to belong and found the courage and support to STOP... Turns out wicked mother didn't want the daughters, she just wanted the inheritance Ren was entitled to... Enough happening to keep you interested...
