Cheesy, romantic love story. Sweet virginal heroine and brooding hero reminded me of Diana Palmer books which is a good thing!
“La voz de Edén era igual que su sonrisa, cálida sin ser coqueta. El tono era ronco, como si
llevara horas sin hablar. Nevada se preguntó si sonreiría igual al despertar y si su sabor sería al
menos la mitad de dulce que su sonrisa. ” “Su voz era como el verso, rauda y llena de vida.” “Edén olía a luz de sol y su aliento, un soplo de calidez, lo cubrió.”“todo en él la intrigaba desde que lo había visto por primera vez” “A la luz desvaneciente del día, los ojos de la chica eran casi verdes,
So, I think this one was the best one in the entire series. But it still followed the basic plotline of the the others. It makes the story a little less interesting when almost every single one of these women is either 22 or 23, almost every single one of them is a virgin and the one that isn't might as well be, and they all manage to get pregnant after the first go around. Anyway, that being said I really liked Nevada and Eden, even though some of the things they said to each other made me winc ...more

One of my favorites by Elizabeth Lowell. I know some deem her earlier work 'purple prose' but this kept me reading. It must be the tension and the slightly 'surreal' feeling, which I always love. I know the hero is flawed but I also know he's going to be faithful forever.

I'm not quite sure what to say about this. I would give it a true rating of about 3.5. It was somewhat dated, since this is an older book, but at the same time not in a distracting way which says a lot for the story. I knew this wasn't any sort of suspense going in but I still felt it a little lacking. And I also felt a little bit of a "woo woo" to the story. We're given this underlying current of maybe they both have some woo woo/special powers to communicate with animals. And the family has so ...more

4th on the Mackenzie series. This story is about Nevada and Eden. This story has the best chemistry of the four books I have read.
4.8 on a 5.0 scale

The Hero Makes the Book

"She's the wrong woman in the wrong place at the wrong time...and she's headed right for me."

THE STORY: Nevada Blackthorn has come to live on the Rocking M after years of covert operations in Afghanistan. He has managed to find some peace, but he remains emotionally withdrawn as a way of protecting himself from pain. Nevada managed to survive but he doesn't really believe in love for himself. Eden Summers is a wildlife biologist who has come to the area to study cougars. E
I have been disappointed in these books in this series after the 1st book. This was short, ended abruptly and was too similar to all the other books after the 1st one.

This read more like an outline than a novel...or novelette...or short many holes....

A keeper! What a wonderful book, and my only complaint is it is too short.

Deep romance. Could not put it down. Saw the characters in my mind. Must read this book if you are into Deep romance.

This series (Granite Man, Fire and Rain, Warrior, Outlaw) on the people of Rocking M ranch is fantanstic! TThis 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 read this book years ago, but continually find myself draw to the men and women of the Rocking M Ranch. This is the story of Nevada Blackthorn and Eden Summers. Originally published as one of the Silhouette Desire books, Warrior is enjoyable without being tiring.

Read this based upon a "list" of great romances. I guess it's a little dated in the storyline (a hero who's a little too alpha and a heroine that could have a lot more knowledge of the world) but overall pretty good read.

This is definitely channeling the Diana Palmer school of asshole heroes and quiet, virginal heroines. I'm glad I picked this up at a yard sale - the cheese was rampant in this one. DNF

My favourite of the series (or at least, tied with Ten's). I so wish she'd continued on with these cowboys, because I never get tired of pulling out these old books and rereading.

This was a fast book. The guy was kinda cold hearted and didn't thaw until the last chapter. Was kind of irritating. All in all...worth the read if you're a Lowell fan.

One of the worst books I have read from Elizabeth Lowell. Basically attraction and sex, no storyline.

I enjoy all of Lowell's books. There is adventure, mystery, romance and laughter. What is not to like!
