Lily wanted more than the shallow life she'd been leading. So she packed up her baby daughter and without looking back, she headed off to safety and a new start--until a blizzard stopped her and she had to ask a stranger for help. The man in the Stetson was their only chance for survival in the snowbound car. He offered refuge, but would this leave her wanting more?

At last, a book has come along that justifies my guilty habit of swiping free romance novels whenever they are available (but only if they fit certain criteria -- this one fit my criteria of "romances about cowboys.") I have to admit that this is one of the few romances I've read where I enjoyed almost every minute of it. Although it fell into the usual romance tropes, including my pet peeve of oh-so-masculine men and oh-so-feminine women, both characters in this book feel real rather than just ...more

Popped into the library to get out of our record breaking heat here in Colorado and just grabbed a book off the shelf to read while I cooled down. It started out okay and was fitting for the type of read I was wanting at the time (easy, chick lit). Well, now I've discovered I'm done with the helpless, waif with no common sense type of heroine. Ugh, would have loved this in my 20s but now I prefer a funnier chick-lit type of romance with a woman who (excuse my French) has some cajones in some way ...more

Montana Man was just OK for me. To be honest neither of the characters were all that interesting, except maybe Nicki the 5 week old baby. Plot wise, not much happens either. Lily and Quist (what kind of name is that?) get stranded in a blizzard. They find a cabin which of course causes them to become extremely attracted to each other. Sex happens. Then they are rescued. Oh, there are a few other things in there that happen, but that is the gist.

There were so many things that I could find wrong w

I started enjoying once I got past the beginning with a hero who thinks all women are weak and up to no good (shows its original 1989 publication). But it is warming up and I'm enjoying it for the most part. Narrator Lesa Lockford is really, really good. I'll look for more of her narrations.

Hmm, possibly not for the more modern thinkers in our group. The heroine wants only to be a mom, wife, and homemaker. Living in a part of the country where this is commonplace, I'm fine with that but I'm afr

A quick, finish in one evening book. A somewhat off-beat western romance which begins in Maine!

This was a vast improvement on the last romance novel that I read from this author. Barbara Delinsky is one of my favourite writers and I've started investigating some of her earlier works. While I was disappointed by An Irresistible Impulse, this novel had the typical Delinsky charm. Well developed characters, excellent interaction and chemistry, a cute baby, a couple of subplots and one of my favourite plot devices - snowbound in a cabin! While initially I was a bit annoyed that Quist conforme ...more

I read this book a long time ago and fell in love with it and 1 scene in particular stuck in my head. Since then he has molded my heroes for me.

I am looking to reread this wonderful story again.

A typical romance novel that pretty much fallows the formula. No major surprises - easy read

I liked the parts about being stuck in the car, otherwise this book was kind of blah.

Lily was caught in a snow storm while on her way to Quebec. She picked up a hitchhiker, Quist, and then ran off the road and couldn't get her car back on the road. They ended up staying in a cabin for several days until the storm was over.

Every once in awhile, you just have to watch a movie on Lifetime. The plot is known; the characters are familiar; the ending is predictable. Yet, you watch it anyway.
This was that movie in written form. Read it in a night.

This is a reissue of one of Barbara Delinsky's early romance novels, before she began writing mainstream fiction. Two travelers snowbound in a cabin. Predictable, but just what I needed after reading a violent thriller.

We can still find your back list even though it's not listed on your website. She was my favorite romance/women's fiction author for years.

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk ...more
