Runaway by Renee Donne
After Marianne discovers her bankrupt stepfather sold her into marriage to the highest bidder, she flees Philadelphia and heads west to start a new life.
Unfortunately for her danger follows. First, a stage coach accident leaves her stranded in the middle of nowhere – with an injured driver. And henchmen, hired by her spurned would-be husband, are hot on her trail, threatening to return her to Philadelphia and the man who is determined to own her.
Just when things seem hopeless, Marianne is rescued by a handsome, cowboy who offers temporary refuge. Knowing she can’t refuse, yet wary of his intentions, Marianne finds herself drawn to this quiet, enigmatic hero. But is he someone she can trust?
Renee Donne is a native Floridian with a penchant for writing books with a western theme. In her head she's a world traveler and an amateur chef. In real life, she's a hometown girl with an affinity for fine wine and good friends. Her favorite place to write is sitting on her veranda, overlooking the beach.

What was the first novel you read that made an impression on you?
Over the years, a lot of books have made an impression on me, but I think the one that still sticks with me the most, even to this day, would be Love Comes Softly by Janette Oke.
Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?
My characters tend to develop as I write. From the outset, I usually have a good feel for my main character and love interest. The supporting characters tend to appear on their own.
What type of book have you always wanted to write?
My interests are all over. I’ve got ideas for YA, contemporary and historical romance, and even a few romantic suspense floating around in my head right now. I’d be hard pressed to stick to just one type of book.
Most _____________ in high school. (popular, nerdy, sporty…) Why?
In highschool, I would probably have been voted Most Quiet. I was a reticent teen, especially at school.
What is your favorite scene in your new release?
My favorite scene would have to be the one where Marianne sees Aaron at breakfast, but doesn’t recognize him without his hat and beard.
