About the Author
I am a stay at home mom and wouldn't have it any other way. Even though most of my time is spent transporting my girls to their various sports activities or running them back and forth to school, it is a blessing just to be with them each and every day.
I am a concert and road trip junkie! I love the thrill of seeing my favorite bands live, and just having fun on the open road.
My kindle has become like an extra appendage, as it is never far from my side. I became obsessed with books a little more than a year and a half ago and wished I had gotten into them much sooner!! My love of reading is what sparked my passion for writing, and now it's one of my favorite things that I do for myself.

I enjoyed the book. I didn't enjoy the FBI agent's use of the f word so much in the book. The love story was well written but there were some sexual details, and it don't like that in a book. I wish books could be rated like movies. I would rate this one R for language and sex. But the story line was good.

I must say that I am in love with this group of books by Amber Nation. She has given us a family of characters that are so easy to feel empathy for and take pride in their courage. I have fallen in love. Maggie has had her whole life to know she was not loved by anyone, not even her parents. She thought her brother loved her, but soon she realized he had become her father, an abusive drunk. After ending up in the hospital as a child after her father beat her, Maggie decided that she wanted to become a nurse so she could be the tender voice of support and love for other patients. She learned to be content with going to work, coming home and being alone, that was until her brother needed a place to stay. Along with a roommate, she now had his baggage that came with him and his job as a drug runner. Charlie is an undercover agent who was part of a case in that small town a year earlier. He is determined to take down the leader of the drug ring there, Maggie’s brother Mason was just the newest employee for this leader. While watching Mason he took an interest in Maggie. He could tell by the way she never looked at people and how skittish she was around others, there was something going on that had hurt her and she was hiding. He just hoped what she was hiding wouldn’t end up putting her in a cell next to her brother. We follow Maggie and Charlie as they find more out about each other and he works at making her feel loved and accepted, unfortunately he didn’t tell her all of his secrets and this would end up wrecking what he had built with her. When things start blowing up around them he finds that he has to find Maggie fast, it is up to him to save her but as an agent he has to decide if he will follow the rules or throw caution to the wind to save the woman he loves. Amber Nation gives us an action packed ending that brings us the answers we needed and the closing to the story of Maggie and Charlie. The people in this story are all so precious with their acceptance and love of each other and the protection they give to each other is just a beautiful thing to read. The writing style of this author is a pleasure to read as it flows so smoothly with just the right balance of intensity and calm. I really recommend this book to you readers; I don’t think you will walk away from this story without knowing your heart has been touched by Maggie and Charlie.

To a certain degree, I strongly believe in love at first sight. I enjoyed reading this book from beginning to end. The book talks about a female nurse, named Maggie, who had been abused by her father in her childhood years. Her only source of protection was a nurse at the local hospital (Brown County Mercy Hospital) and this inspired her to become a nurse in her later years of life. Her brother, Mason, seemed to be the perfect brother at first until he decided to move in with Maggie. The first lesson I took away from this is be careful who you let squat and stay with you. They never want to leave and they make your life a living nightmare. Charlie is a completely different story and I can care less about him working as a detective with the FBI. Men must learn to respect a women’s territory; including their body. A lot of times, a women’s intention is not to hurt or disregard men. Yet, childhood experiences never fade away and this shaped Maggie for the rest of her life. The front and back covers of the book were amazing. I was able to shortly grasp the main idea of this book by depicting the couple and their setting. The title “Runaway Love” gives off a small hunch of meaning. I enjoyed the acknowledgments inside of the book and the brief synopsis on the back. The author puts together a love novel full of romance and suspense. She remains on focus, as she presents small stories of interests leading to the “big picture” --- LOVE! Love is powerful and overlooks gimmicks. I enjoyed the way this book ended and my eyes took a second glimpse towards reality. It is one thing to read a novel, but it’s another thing to disposition the main character and replace it with yourself. A splendid job and exquisite piece of writing! I recommend this book for newlyweds, damaged couples, women who have been hurt by their father at a young age, and those trying to understand what “LOVE” is all about. As Passenger sings in their new song, Let Her Go, “if you love her, then you’ll let her go”, letting go can be hard and it pays to do so in the long haul. Great job overall.
