Desire came like a wildfire to the Colorado hills...to claim a woman's property...and her heart. For five years after her father died, lithe, beautiful Dee Swann held on to Angel Creek valley and her independence. The homestead was hers, and she vowed no one else would ever own it...or her. Then Lucas Cochran came back to Colorado. In the drought-cursed high country, he needed Angel Creek and its cool water to turn his Double C ranch into the cattle dynasty he craved. His ruthless ambition guaranteed he would fight to take it away from the black-haired, green-eyed spitfire who claimed it. But the passion that blazed when Dee Swann and Lucas Cochran met shocked them both. Unbidden, unexpected, their kisses swept them toward a dangerous destiny where dreams might be scattered...men could be killed...or love would be born as wild and unfettered as this glorious frontier.

Being a Linda Ho...
Vacation lawnchair re-read -- I changed my rating from 4 stars to 3, though. I didn't like the Hero nearly as much this time reading - what a complete ASS, not nearly as likeable for me this time around. The stunt he pulled (needed, of course, to create The Big Mis) was so big I don't think I coul...
It's Linda Howards' early 90's book so it's practically the old-romance recipe. The Alpha Male, younger female, kind of stuff. Pretty much what I expected from her older books. But of course, it's not favorite, since it's pretty shallow. I like her late 90's / early 2000's books better. I just read ...
I don't even know why I attempted to read this. Honestly, I don't feel like I should even rate this book. Not that it was terrible, it just wasn't my cup of tea. I think people who enjoy historical western romances will undoubtedly appreciate this book, and Linda Howard is an excellent story teller....
