She’s the Only Witness to a Wagon Train Attack. Keeping Her Safe, Though, Means His World Is about to be Turned Upside Down.
When Trace Riley finds the smoldering ruins of a small wagon train, he recognizes an attack by the same group who left him as sole survivor years ago. Living off the wilderness since then, he’s finally carved out a home and started a herd–while serving as a self-appointed guardian of the trail. He’d hoped the days of driving off dangerous men were over, but the latest attack shows otherwise.
Deborah Harkness saved her younger sister and two toddlers during the attack, and now finds herself at the mercy of her rescuer. Trace becomes an accidental guardian when he offers the only shelter for miles around and agrees to take them in until they can safely continue their journey. His simple bachelor existence never anticipated kids and women in the picture and their arrival is unsettling–yet enticing.
Trace and Deborah find themselves drawing ever closer as they work together to bring justice to the trail and help the group survive the winter–but every day closer to spring means a day closer to leaving the mountains forever.
The next book in the series, THE RELUCTANT WARRIOR will be released later this year in October, 2018!

In My Opinion…
Can I just say how much I love Mary Connealy’s stories? I listened to the audiobook of this first in her High Sierra Sweethearts series and probably looked a little crazy sitting at my desk at the office giggling and grinning at points.
Danger, a little intrigue, romance, and hilarity all play their part in The Accidental Guardian. I mean, three bachelors who find their home invaded by two young women and two children (one still in diapers) provide plenty of snicker-worthy moments.
Despite is young age, Trace is a good man, a self-appointed guardian of travelers through his area of the Sierra Mountains. He’s intent on finding the men who attacked the wagon train Deb Harkness and her sister was traveling with, more so when he discovers Deb saw one of those men. And he’s adorably awkward when it comes to the ways of women…and romance.
Here’s hoping everyone in this fabulous read meets their match because I can’t get enough of Connealy’s books! And there is a hint of things to come at the end of The Accidental Guardian.
Also, for fellow audiobook fans, the narration for this one is spot on.
