By BookLover on Jan. 7 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was not up to the high standard of reading I'm used to with Elizabeth Lowell. I usually find myself highly enjoying any book with her name on the cover.
However, mayhap it was the premise of the book that disturbed me more than the actual writing. The hero and heroine of this novel had grown up as as basically half sister/brother to one another. To me, the idea of romance between the two almost rings of an incestual note even though there was no blood relation between them. Her father, unable to acknowledge her since she was illegitmate, and finding his wife unable to bear children adopted him.
When he passed away, his dying wish was for her to inherit the family land and home. He knows this and decides to try and win her heart in order to keep his home. These two have a history of love failing between them, as once before he hurt her deeply. With these premises in mind, I did not care for eithier of these much so that i'm afraid to tell their names for fear I've already forgotten them they were that forgettable.

I hadn't read anything by Elizabeth Lowell for quite a while before picking this up. This story really had all the things I remembered about her books great characters that felt like friends by the end of the book,fast paced suspenseful plot, and hot and satisfying romance.

Could not put it down! Oct. 7 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book! I couldn't help but get involved in the characters whose past memories threaten to keep them from what love can offer. Carson was so patient and sensitive with Lara, giving totally of himself in an unselfish way. I thought it had a good story and great sexual tension. It's definitely one I will keep in my collection.

I've really enjoyed Ms Lowell's writing, but this book, although it had some very romantic scenes in it, left me wanting more. More plot, more mystery, anything really other than the romance. I don't regret buying it and I'll probably keep it in my library or give away, but I probably won't find myself rereading it because it was a little too plain for me. Quick and easy read, but a little disappointing in regards to Ms Lowell's capability. On to the next one!

Excellent often ignored Lowell romance. March 19 2007
By Gold Star Reader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Written in the 80s when Lowell was at her sensuous best. The story of sexpot Lara and the insecure Carson hit all the right buttons for me. I love the way Lowell plays with family relationships. I love the way that Lowell juxtaposes Lara's childhood full of love and Carson's lonely one. I love the way Lara can place her own personal memories in the wider context of the history of the ranch. I love the way Carson manipulates Lara's history project from the outset because he is having to risk everything in order not to end up with nothing. I even love the way Carson turns into a romantic sap once he marries Lara. I particularly love the male nudity scenes. And I love the fact that even though both Lara and Carson are educated, all they basically want is a loving home and children. I was awed by how quickly Lara was able to understand Carson's motivations when all the truths were revealed. Absolutely great ending and the love scenes were good too.

Great read. It takes the reader inside the old west ranch life, the hardships, and the choices made to survive and keep the ranch going. These choices are still being felt in the present day where the story takes place.
