Book Description

Just when you think the story can’t get any hotter, you’re sadly mistaken…

“Another hot Friessen Man. It is a pleasure watching Andy learn how to be a real husband and father." Reviewer, Miranda

“This definitely proves money doesn't buy love. What a suspenseful love story.” - Reviewer, April

In RUNAWAY, Andy Friessen has been looking for his wife for six months. After Laura walked out with her son, no goodbye, with no money and leaving everything Andy bought her, behind.

But he knew she’d come crawling back, she needed him. After all he married her to protect her. And any woman would give their right arm to be his wife.

And then for six months his conscience poked at what an ass he’d been: Until he’s served…for divorce.

Even though Andy is the first man she’s every truly loved, and the first to break her heart, Laura plans to never see him again. After all to him she was nothing but a nuisance, someone he could order around, just another woman to warm his bed at night.

But Laura is hurt and she’s thought nothing through including the fact she’s keeping the biggest surprise from him yet.

She’s pregnant.

And when Andy finds out … all hell will break loose.

**CONTENT WARNING: Although this series is filled with ideals of family, love and loyalty, the Friessen men are strong sexy alpha males. Each story is filled with sexual tension, steamy romance, rough language, and passion. It is for those who enjoy adult contemporary romance, women’s fiction, western romance.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Every book I write has characters near and dear to my heart. The books I write are the ones I want to read, with characters I want to meet, (Okay maybe one or two I'd rather not), but with hero's to cheer for, and always love to hope for.
~ Lorhainne Eckhart

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Awesome story! June 19, 2013
By Paula
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Laura was married to Andy, a very wealthy man. She took Gabriel her five year old son and left. Her heart couldn't take being in love with Andy, and having Andy treat her like she was nothing. The day she left, she found out she was pregnant. Once she was gone, Andy looked back, and realized he had made mistakes. He wanted to see his wife, he wanted to talk to her, and wanted another chance. For months no one would tell him where she was.

When he finally found Laura he was shocked to find out she was pregnant. Laura had complications with the pregnancy, and was put on bed rest. Andy treated Laura like she was a piece of porcelain. Sometimes actions speaks louder than words. Laura was still weary, not knowing what to believe, but wanting to give Andy another chance. Andy moved Laura, and Gabriel into his mansion that he shared with his mother, and some staff.

I know I've heard some pretty bad tales of mother in laws, but I have to say this is the worst one I've ever come across. Caroline can't stand Laura, and makes sure Laura knows it. I don't want to spoil the book, so you will just have to read to see just how bad Caroline is. After Laura over heard some conversations, she took her son, and left in the middle of night. Andy was worried sick when he couldn't find his wife. When he found her again, he promised Laura that he would protect her. This really was a sweet romance. The two had problems, and they worked through them. They had to learn to trust each other once again. I could feel the love burning between Andy, and Laura. The couple felt like real people, but I hope no one in real life has had to deal with a mother in law as bad as Caroline.

Sample from chapter 7Just watching the scene had something disturbing squeezing deep inside her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series June 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Lorhainne Eckhart has a way at really tugging on the heartstrings and this story is no exception. Poor Laura has had a tough time of it. Life should have improved when she married handsome and wealthy Andy Friessen, but that's not how things worked out. Andy had issues from the past clouding his judgement and he let Laura slip away, not realizing how much she meant to him. Now he has to work very hard to win back her trust. Andy has come a long way since we first met him. He's finally stepped out from under the influence of his parents and it was great to see. Another enjoyable installment in this first-rate series. I recommend new readers start with the first book in the series to get the most out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, what a story! June 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this, loved this, loved this! Grabbed me from the start and held me the whole way through. Felt like I was on a roller coaster ride, up and down and honestly wanted to jump in the book and start smacking some of these folks "upside the head". I know there are mean, evil people in the world and this was just a story but they alternated between making me mad and actually being frightened for some of the good people - that's really good writing. Loved the good, honest, clean living characters and reminded me also that there are heroes in this world and especially in this book. Obviously this writer has the talent to pull the readers in and keep them - thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy Western June 13, 2013
By Shellsy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a country girl, I'm always looking for a good western romance. Really any romance will do, but I digress. "Runaway" is just that. It's a delicious combination of sexy and intrigue, which is sure to please. An enjoyable read!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Runaway. by. Lothainne Eckhart June 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the love story of Laura and Andy, an exciting, romantic, suspenseful, warm, inviting story containing tears and laughter. Two charming people with two very different personalities, both with much to learn from each other. They encounter extremely difficult family problems. Learn the inside workings of a wealthy ranching passionate family involving complicated individuals, some loving, but most of them selfish, cruel, conniving, malicious, even wicked individuals from old money that have controlled the family and communities they live in for years. They assume they are individuals that far exceed the rest of the common population. I found it to be an interesting read to follow the workings of the ultimate rich, who have everything materialistic possible yet are bitter, unforgiving,unhappy individuals who have no idea what life is like for the comman working man. It was an interesting read for me, who lived a normal life common man's life to see how those that want for nothing lived. I was disappointed to think this series was over but was pleased to learn that another book is coming out, or may be available already. It is about the last of the handsome, wealthy sons of this complicated dynasty, the last to find romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another hot Friessen man June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All of theFriessen males are alphas, and Andy is no different. However due to his dysfunctional parents he has trouble realizing how much he loves his wife until she leaves him. This is a charming love story, and you can't help loving all the characters. It is a pleasure watching Andy learn how to be a real husband and father. You can't go wrong with any of the Outsider series.
