A carefree young drifter and a runaway heiress elude a business tycoon’s security team and the FBI in a hilarious flight of self-discovery and unexpected romance.

Novelist Michael Murphy

A carefree drifter enjoys life on the road, small towns, different jobs, new friends and a variety of girls. The last thing he needs is a runaway heiress who could tempt him to put down roots.

Less than twenty-four hours after dodging a matrimonial bullet, Bart Wheeler reluctantly comes to the aid of a girl in trouble. With Bart’s street smarts and Samantha Shepherd’s guile, they keep one step ahead of an irate business tycoon, the FBI and a bogus kidnapping charge in a hilarious flight of self-discovery and unexpected romance.


The trembling dog’s nose twitched toward the patty in the container. Tinker whined then looked at Bart with longing eyes. He let out a sharp bark and jumped back into the purse.

Samantha broke off a piece of hamburger and held it out. “Here, honey.” Tinker poked his head out, glanced at Bart and then gobbled down the morsel. His tail thumped against the side of the purse as he waited for more. “Don’t you like dogs?”

“I don’t like anything I have to take care of,” Bart said. And that went for spoiled rich model-types who carry dogs in their purses.

A car behind the truck honked. Bart noticed the green light and drove through the intersection.

Who was this uppity rich girl? What kind of mess was she in that brought her on a bus to Tony’s Café? Who were the four suits, and why were they after her? Bart shook his head. He’d forgotten about Mandy in the past half hour, but, dude, what had he gotten himself into?

Professional Reviews

Author Jordan Dane
An utterly charming read! In RAMBLIN' MAN by talented author Michael Murphy, Bart Wheeler has met his match when he crosses paths with a sassy self-indulged runaway heiress with Yorkie-Pom in tow. But not even an irate business tycoon, the FBI, a bogus kidnapping charge or a one-side
softball game can rattle this guileless dude. Murphy gives breath to an understated hero for our time.

Author Melanie Wells
In Michael Murphy’s new novel Ramblin’ Man, Bart Wheeler, newly unattached, is enjoying an aimless journey cross country with his window down and his radio on, dining at the local greasy spoon, when a runaway heiress sashays into his life in a cloud of expensive perfume, a posse of FBI agents and private security thugs hot on her trail. Before he can finish his fries, Bart finds himself sharing the cab of his truck with a yappy purse-sized dog named Tinker and a red-head confection in pink designer jeans who believes chipped fingernail polish qualifies as a genuine emergency. Michael Murphy makes you like ‘em all – even the dog. Murphy takes us around bend after unexpected bend as Bart and Samantha take the ride of their lives – on the long, twisted road to Apple Valley. You can almost smell the cheeseburgers.

Author Alicia Paige
Buckle your seat belt and brace yourself! Michael Murphy's Ramblin' Man is one hell of a ride! Murphy is the master of character development, handing us Bart Wheeler, one tough guy with a heart of gold and enough sex appeal to singe the pages while tossing in one irresistible, spoiled, rich heiress with more than a few surprises tucked inside her little pink purse!

Murphy delivers it all! Bare knuckle fight scenes, nail biting suspense, knee slapping comedy and edge of the seat romantic tension reminiscent of the longing seen only on the television series, Moonlighting. Ramblin' Man is one wide open, fun filled road trip you'll never want to end.”
