As Raine Smith heads to the Olympic Games for the equestrian event, little does she realize that she's about to face her greatest peril in the arms of Cord Elliot, a man trained to protect her from sudden gunfire. Yet, from the moment Raine meets Cord's ice-blue glance, she knows he's more hazardous to her heart than a sniper's bullet.

I recently read Beautiful Dreamer and loved it, so I tried this book. I wasn't overly impressed. Elizabeth Lowell improved a lot in 20 years between Remember Summer and Beautiful Dreamer. Summer wasn't a bad book it just wasn't good either. The love at first tackle (hehe) scenario was over done and not believable, but the rest of the love story was better. The theme of a "rambling man" meets special woman and changes his ways to stay with her, was done amazingly in Beautiful Dreamer, but doesn't...more
In the last of my Elizabeth Lowell Summer 2009 Marathon, I'm jumping out of the historicals and into a contemporary, Remember Summer. I was hoping that I'd get closer in general flavor to the sorts of suspense novels Lowell's been writing for much of her recent career, and at least in some ways, that's what I got; it was easy to see the progression from her historicals to this novel and on up to her later work. Still, this one's got its feet planted way more on the romance side of the fence than...more

Seriously? Talk about seductin at warp speed! You gotta read it to understand, but...okay...I might just need to read (instead of listen to) chapters one and two again 'cause I obviously missed SOMETHING.

No, she was an unwilling victim (yet really willing) to be seduced by a man who had just knocked the wind out of her thinking her a terrorist.

Okay. Sure.

I so wanted to finsh this book, that I found myself actually skipping over some of the more detailed riding passages! Call me impatient. I was...more
I read this book when I was young and I must have liked it because I kept it. I found it on audio and was excited. I was confused less then an hour in. I picked up the book to see if the audio book missed a few chapters, but nope, there was no mistake. It baffles me that this book made it to the shelves. In less then ten pages the two main characters meet, lust after each other, and fall madly in love. I felt like I was being punked and there was a hidden camera and soon I'd find out it was not...more
Audio Book #6 of 2009

I first read this book back in HS. Picked up, no doubt, because of the equestrian theme. I've read it twice, I believe, and enjoyed it this time. So when I was looking for an Audio book to listen to when we went to Buffalo, and I remembered this, I tought, why not? We've listened to two other Elizabeth Lowell audio books this year, so I though it would be tolerated.

What I didn't remember about the book was how little action took place. Most of the book seemed to be about the...more
This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that. Always in depth characters that anyone can identify with on some level.
I enjoyed the parts about the Olympic equestrian competitions however the story was supposed to have some suspense/intrigue which it lacked. The background on the assassin was also missing. The end felt very rushed.

I enjoyed this book about the equestrian events more than the other parts of the story. I learned so much that helped me to follow the International Games held here in the US in 2010. Very exciting!
Good story, "Cord" seems a little too good to be true. Ah, if only men did talk like that.

the fact that I survived the book is a miracle - dear god, how bad
