Runaway Heir by Ruth Cardello


Release Date: May 28, 2019

Publisher: Montlake Romance


The Boston Westerlys are reuniting for a wedding—a longtime wish for its matriarch. If only Nicolette, the youngest of the clan’s siblings, could find love. With her true parentage suddenly in question, she feels like more of an outsider than ever. It figures that the one guest of any comfort is her grandmother’s greatest enemy. Now, Nicolette’s only impulse is to run. Disappearing to a small Iowa town, she can build a future on her terms without the Westerly name or money—or the secrets that have divided the family for years.

Despite his damning history with the Westerlys, Bryant Taunton recognizes a kindred spirit in Nicolette. He is drawn to the beautiful loner. When she vanishes, he follows. But Bryant has his own secrets, and gaining Nicolette’s trust won’t be easy. It might even require the help of the family she left behind.

Now, for Nicolette and Bryant, coming to terms with the past is the only way to make both their dreams come true, and to finally find a way home.


Have you read this series!? Well, you really should! I mean the Westerly’s are chaos in the best way. The crazy family dynamics really make each character’s story that much more endearing. Delinda is the meddling grandmother with a lot to learn about dealing with her grandchildren. She just wants what is best for them and she is a force to be reckoned with. I have loved seeing her evolution, and I actually liked her in this book, which was not always the case.

Nicolette is trying to cope with the questions around her parentage, but she is a HOT MESS. I really enjoyed the realness this brought to her character. She doesn’t handle things well, and that makes her relatable. I was just so invested in her, and really loved all her growth throughout the story. Now, let’s discuss the insta-love of this story. I mean do you need a new book boyfriend?! Because Bryant Taunton is delicious with a heart of gold. Between these two and the connections between characters, I couldn’t put this book down! I’d definitely recommend it, as well as the rest of the series.
