Over The Edge - Mary Connealy
Seth Kincaid survived a fire in a cave, but he's never been the same. He was always a reckless youth, but now he's gone over the edge. He ran off to the Civil War and came back crazier than ever.
After the war, nearly dead from his injuries, it appears Seth got married. Oh, he's got a lot of excuses, but his wife isn't happy to find out Seth doesn't remember her. Callie has searched, prayed, and worried. Now she's come to the Kincaid family's ranch in Colorado to find her lost husband.
Callie isn't a long-suffering woman. Once she knows her husband is alive, she wants to kill him. She's not even close to forgiving him for abandoning her.
Then more trouble shows up in the form of a secret Seth's pa kept for years. The Kincaid brothers might lose their ranch if they can't sort things out. It's enough to drive a man insane--but somehow it's all making Seth see things more clearly. And now that he knows what he wants, no one better stand in his way.

I read the first two books in this series Out Of Control and In Too Deep. I really liked them. But I've other Mary Connealy books and I liked them too. I like her writing style. She mixes romance, mystery, and comedy all in one!
I have to say my favorite character was Callie. But I've noticed I gravitate towards the strong women. Maybe cause I'm not exactly strong like Callie. I'm strong in another more internal way. She's tough, and she wears it like a dress. I'm the more internally, I can be strong. To most people I look weak, and I act weak a lot. But I've been able to handle a lot more than I myself thought I could. So has Callie.
She's had a rough life. She didn't have her mom growing up. Her brother decided to fight in the Civil War. Then gets injured. While she was helping in the hospital that her brother was in, she met Seth. Seth was injured as well, and was healing in the same hospital. Even though, Seth was half out of his mind, they had a STRONG chemistry. And they figured before it went any further they would marry. Although they were married only a couple days, and Seth had one of his episodes and he didn't remember where he was, so he just left. She thought her husband left her. That's when she found out she was carrying Connor Seth's son. Callie decided to hunt down her low-down skunk of a husband! (Quote from the book).
My next book will be Love's Reckoning by: Laura Frantz.
