A fast-paced, full-length contemporary romance from award winning author, Barbara Samuel.
IN TOO DEEP Mattie O’Neal is on the run. She's chopped off her hair, stolen a car, changed her name, and is hiding in a tiny Arizona town, slinging hash. She thought she was safe – until Zeke Shephard walked through the door.
Rugged, hard-edged Zeke doesn't get involved--but there's something about Mattie's courage that catches his sympathy. When the thugs who want to silence Mattie forever show up, Zeke steps in and takes her to his own private hide away, where the two must decide if the link between them is worth fighting for...and if they can stay alive long enough to explore it.
From AAR reviews: "I read this book at one sitting and then immediately began to read it again. I have seldom felt such love and empathy for two characters as I did for Zeke and Mattie. When Mattie left Zeke for a short time, [Ruth Wind] conveyed the loneliness of this man who had thought he was a loner so well, that I thought my heart would break. When they were reunited, I wept with joy. Breaking the Rules is a book filled with deep emotion, yet it is never maudlin or sappy. It only reinforces my opinion that [Ruth Wind] is one of the best writers of romance today. The day I find all of her older books with be a very happy one." --Ellen Micheletti
