"Guess I'm going to Vancouver now."
"'Cause if I don't, you're gonna get yourself in trouble. Then I'm gonna have to hear some sad news story about a pretty small-town girl named Lacey Stephens who ended up dead in a ditch somewhere."
After the boy she's crushed on for years plays a cruel prank, Lacey Stephens ends up stranded in Winnipeg with nothing but what's in her backpack. In a moment of recklessness she doesn't realize will change her life forever, Lacey boards a train headed west to find the brother she hasn't seen since their religious father kicked him out of their house ten years ago.
But when trouble finds her first and she's saved by a tall, stoic man with dark eyes, a tight smile, and a good heart, Lacey starts to realize the life she had in her small, northern town was anything but normal... or safe. Determined to break free, Lacey contends with her family, her surroundings, and feelings she didn't know were possible.
Part coming-of-age story, part love letter to Canada, part steamy romance, Runaway follows the twists and turns of Lacey's journey, with plenty of steamy stops along the way.
This feel-good romance deals with themes of religious trauma and toxic family relationships. Runaway is part of the Love Across Canada series, a four-book series of interconnected standalones about three different couples.
