When Dallas society bride Elizabeth Eve Barrington discovers her intended’s financial ulterior motives for marriage, she hightails it out of the church in her wedding gown and hops in the back of a parked and beat-up pickup truck. 
Happy to leave the big city, sexy cowboy Connor McCall jumps in his truck, revs up his engine, and then heads home to Honor, Texas with the goal of saving his family's failing ranch. Hours later and miles down country roads, Connor discovers the stowaway bride, and he’s pretty sure she’s feigning amnesia.
What’s a cowboy to do? Cowboy up, of course. He takes Eve home, determined to solve her mystery. What he discovers is a lot of smoke–and where there's smoke, there's fire, with the heat generating between them hot enough to burn.  Will Connor be damned if he falls for the beautiful runaway bride or will he be damned if he doesn’t?

    Enjoyable sweet love story. No twist or turns to the plots that you cannot see coming. Eve and Connor gets their HEA. I just thought the horse was kind of an odd twist.

    I love love Love this story. It is set in the area I live in and I found myself looking for places I know as I read this book. That made this book all the more endearing to me. I love reading books by Laurie LeClair. Her style of writing always draws me in and I am rarely disappointed. This book had me at the "veil". In this book we have a bride who just happens to over hear her groom talking right before the wedding. Seems he is not marrying her for love after all. Oops... so she is smart and takes off without telling a soul. Runs away... sees a trailer and ducks for ya see where this is going? There are so my depths to this book. There is romance, friendship, oh my word wait until you meet Gramps and Sweet Potato his pet miniature horse. Great read that I scan promise you is on my RE-Read list for the future.
  • A Wonderful Read

    The Cowboy’s Runaway Bride by Laurie LeClaire, the third book in her McCall Brothers series is a sweet story about finding love, friendship, family and trust. Elizabeth Eve Barrington is getting married only to help create harmony in her family, not because she loves the groom. On her escape out of the church she overhears him telling his boss how he is marrying her for a trophy wife and will get her cardiologist father to endorse a questionable heart medicine after the marriage. Eve, as she goes by now, ran and hid in a parked pick-up truck. Connor McCall is not ready for love, worried more about saving the family ranch and Gramps. When Conn saves a runaway veil and returns it to the bride, he has no idea how that action will affect his future, let alone the electric shock he feels when their hands touch. Out of all the trucks Eve could choose, she picked Connor’s and ends up at the McCall ranch. Eve and Conn share an attraction with lots of chemistry, but can they trust one another with the truth. I loved reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I laughed, I worried, I cried, and I hoped while I read this story. Ms. LeClaire is a wonderful storyteller who drew me in and did not let go until I read the last page. I definitely recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
  • A Fun Read!

    Such a fun read. The last thing Connor McCall was expecting to find in the back of his pickup truck on the way home from Dallas was a runaway bride with amnesia. Eve (Elizabeth) is running away from the biggest mistake that she was about to make, marrying the wrong man. Connor brings her home to the ranch with his other brothers and gramps. While Connor trying to solve, who this mystery woman is a passion flares up between him and Eve. Love the McCall brothers, so happy they all ended up with their happily ever afters. Gramps is one of a kind, love him. Of course we can't forget Miss Peaches and Miss Clementine, they always have something to say. I'm sad to say goodby to the McCalls. I highly recommend this book along with the rest of this series!

    Such a fun read!! Getting himself and his Gramps out of Dallas and back home to Honor is all that's on Connor McCall's mind. So he hops in his pickup and points it towards home. Discovering a runaway bride in the back of his pickup was to say the least is a surprise. The fact that she's the same bride he saw earlier going to her wedding even more surprising. Her claiming to have amnesia, unbelievable! This is just the start of the fun and good times to come. I definitely recommend this one.
