3,5 estrellas. Tenía muchas ganas de conocer la historia de Wolfe y Jessi. Como ya ocurrió con el primer libro de esta serie me gusta mucho el pasado que la autora crea para sus protagonistas: un vaquero mestizo mitad cheyenne mitad lord inglés y una joven escocesa acogida por la familia de su padre, con un pasado difícil y un presente que transcurre entre algodones. Lo que ya no me gusta tanto es lo cruel que puede llegar a ser el protagonista para librarse de ese matrimonio impuesto ni tampoco ...more

Leí por primera vez este libro hace más de diez años, cuando el mercado de la literatura romántica todavía era escaso en España para las que leemos mucho y te pasabas constantemente por la FNAC para ver si salía algo nuevo. Como cada vez que releo un libro comencé con mucho miedo, diez años de diferencia suponen una evolución importante como lectora después de cientos y cientos de libros, pero el recuerdo que tenía de Solo Mía era bueno y me decidí por él para el Reto Rita.

(3.5 estrellas)
Toda una sorpresa esta novela cuyo único hilo argumental prácticamente es la relación de los dos protagonistas y su camino hasta darse cuenta de que su amor está por encima de todo. A esto le añadimos las diferencias claras entre la Inglaterra y el lejano Oeste del siglo XIX, entre la aristocracia y un "bastardo" mestizo, y entre una chica muy, muy inocente de 20 años, con un gran bagaje vital dramático, y un guapísimo "lord salvaje" medio cheyene que siempre la ha protegido de to

4/5
Muy entretenido. Una lectura fácil con la que me lo he pasado muy bien. Y es que los protagonistas tienen unos diálogos llenos de un humor chispeante.
Wolfe es un amor.
Muy recomendable aunque alguna parte me haya parecido un poco excesiva en el drama

Me ha gustado más que el primero, lee más "cómodamente".
Wolfe es un personaje que ya en el primer libro atrapa la curiosidad. Me gusta mucho pero hubo momentos que le hubiera dado 2 tortas por su comportamiento y manera de juzgar a Jessie. No hay más ciego que quien no quiere ver.
Me da que a esta autora le gustan los protagonistas machotes combinados con algo de pichotismo en determinados momentos → michotes.
Jessie es una buena protagonista muy inocente pero cero pichote, tiene miedo y h

I thought I was re-reading the first in the series, but I was one off. :) Anywho, I read this series long ago in the heyday of my hist-rom reading. I actually liked Only Mine, but not as much as I’m sure I did the first time around.

Lady Jessica Charteris is about to be forced into an appalling marriage to a moneyed Lord full of drink and age. She wants none of it. So she forces Wolfe Lonetree, her oldest and dearest friend into marriage instead. (Really? You didn't like it, why would he??) Wolfe

Confieso que al principio las idas y venidas de esta pareja se me hacían pesadas. Tenían siempre la misma dinámica entre ellos. Admiro la valentía y fortaleza de Jessica, pero oye hay cosas que debería haber explicado antes, aunque la comprendo. Wolfe otras veces muy cabezón y bastante cruel, aunque lo compensa más tarde. Pero debo decir que el final tan rápido es lo que menos me ha gustado. Esperaba que Wolfe nos mostrara mejor lo que siente. Cierto es que todo es más o menos predecible, pe

Pues me ha gustado muchísimo más aún que el primero de la serie!
Wolfe y Jessi son unos personajes geniales, he disfrutado de lo lindo con su historia y además, se agradece que la narración no sea tan descriptiva con los paisajes y terrenos como lo fue en el anterior.
Lo que más he disfrutado, claro está, son los momentos íntimos entre los dos protas porque son 😍🔥😍🔥😍🔥sobre todo Wolfe!!!

Y como me ha encantado pues me apetece mucho seguir con las demás historias, las de los hermanos Moran, Ma

Decepcionada con esta lectura. Quizás me esperaba demasiado y pasada la sorpresa del primero, este me ha sabido a muy poco.
Wolfe tenía una pinta genial, pero admito que me han faltado más matices. Muchos frentes abiertos que juegan como un supuesto misterio que al final se desvelan tal cual te has imaginado. Sorpresa cero. la verdad y cando una novela es tan tan tan predecible me aburro.
Lo dicho, la primera parte muy repetitiva con una protagonista que no me ha convencido porque me parecía de to

My sympathy in this book ended up almost entirely with Wolfe, and almost not at all with Jessica. I'm not sure why. She did deserve an ounce of sympathy after the author (finally) revealed the full truth about her issues, but perhaps only an ounce in light of what she did to WOlfe -- trapping her "best friend" into marriage. I found that to be a horribly selfish, childish, and conniving thing to do. And I never got past it, even though she proved herself in other ways.

This book was horrible, just horrible. We have a thick-headed hero and worse, a heroine with an aversion to sex and who is terrified of ever becomming pregnant. The heroine was nieve to the point of extreme unbelievablity and completely spoiled. She had never even brushed her own hair before she got married. She tricks the hero into marriage and then refuses to let him touch her. Not only refuses to let him touch her, but calls him hateful things when he tries. She picked him to marry for the fo ...more

Aaarggh. Someone here on GR has a shelf called "asshat hero". Well, Wolfe could take pride of place on that shelf.

This book could have been so good, but for some reason Lowell decided to make the hero a real "asshat".

We were first introduced to Wolfe Lonetree in Only His, and I was really looking forward to reading his story. Wolfe was born to an English father and Cheyenne mother. His character in Only His was honorable and kind, and we learned about his special friendship over the years with L

My 2 stars rating has everything to do with the characters. I disliked both of them and found it difficult to care.

Why I don"t like them:

Wolfe: I think my favorite line from him is "I am a husband to you, but you are not a wife to me." I understand the sentiments. I mean his wife wouldn't sleep with him. What was a man to do? I don't know what I would have done if I were him. Indeed a difficult situation for him. But I can't help but feel that Wolfe just wanted to have sex. It wasn't that he r

Another 3 1/2 star book. Really liked this story except that the hero's "resistance" to their marriage dragged on way too long. I almost got to the point where I wanted to say "who cares anymore." Other than that it would have been a keeper.

Oddly enough, this is the second book in two days I've read where the hero calls the heroine his "elf". (The other being The Perfect Waltz.) Unfortunately, having just watched The Hobbit, I don't think "elf" is conjuring quite the image the authors intended. Especially since the heroine's just over five feet tall.



There were parts of this book I enjoyed, but most of it was rather annoying. The heroine definitely got on my nerves. She refuses to ever have sex and get pregnant because of childhood

2.5 pretty disappointed stars. This is the 2nd book in Lowell's "Only" series, but I read #5 and #6 first, so this was the 4th I read and by far the worst of the bunch.

Here's a spoilerific recap of the book:

Lady Jessica begs Wolfe to marry her to save her from having to marry a cruel Lord in England. He agrees and takes her to Colorado, where he vows that she will get tired of the hard life there and if the marriage isn't consummated, she'll seek an annulment and head back to England. Here's how

More Elizabeth Lowell "Only" romance! Swinging back to Book 2, Lady Jessica Charteris from England has saved herself from being forced into marriage with Obligatory Repellent British Guy--by tricking her way into marriage with Wolfe Lonetree, her Bestest Friend from her childhood, and never mind that he's the half-Cheyenne bastard son of the local duke. Jessi and Wolfe have all the obligatory luvin' going (and by luvin' I mean smexxing), while Wolfe tries to yell her into getting an annulment an ...more

Mi sembra doveroso giustificare il motivo del mio abbandono.
Prima di tutto non mi piacciono le ambientazioni del vecchio west.
I film western li ho sempre trovati noiosi e ripetitivi (eccetto ‘Pugni pupe e pepite’ con John Wayne), visto uno li hai visti tutti. Il libro all’inizio prometteva bene, poi quando siamo passati nel west dove lui doveva insegnare a lei anche ad andare a riempire d’acqua il contenitore per fare il caffè, ebbene ho gettato la spugna.

This story hasn't stood the test of time.. from writing to plot. It's too flowery, which was fine in 1992 I suppose, and too cliche, with bastards being mean and girls having no idea what marriage is all about. Uggh. Can't remember why I read it the second time (I think it's because I loved the other books in the series) and I have to admit I glossed over the last 30 pages because usually EL endings are pretty good but this one failed me.. again.

Okay, let me start this review by saying that I don't often don't finish a book and I rarely give one star reviews. In this case I made an exception. Because, well, I found this book terrible. This review contains spoilers, but I only got to page 26 so the spoiler factor is probably very low.
