You can never go wrong with Lowell historicals. Great romantic, sexy read set in the old west. Can be heart wrenching. Very hard book to post, as I've enjoyed it more than once. Fourth in the Only series.
Book 3 in the ONLY series (historical western).
Matt "Reno" Moran should never have trusted wily cardsharp Evelyn Starr Johnson, but she has enflamed his passions as no woman has before - and she has Moran's map to a lost gold mine.
Made desperate by poverty and loss, Evelyn Starr Johnson sees a golden opportunity to win back her lost status by recovering the treasure map stolen from her murdered fosther parents. And with nothing left to wager but her innocence, the beautiful cardsharp stares coolly at their killers across the poker table-then stacks the deck and delas the winning hand to a handsome, unsespecting stranger.
Book 3 of the Only series.
Good early Lowell, she never disappoints.
The other books in this series are:
1. Only Love
2. Only Mine
3. Only You
4. Only His
5. Autumn Lover
6. Winter Fire
Second in series about 3 brothers and their friend who traveled to Old West finding adventure, gold, romance, and marriage. First is Only His, 3rd is Only Love. I believe Only Mine is 4th. I have read first three. Very good!
There us no greater guarantee of outstanding romance than the name of Elizabeth Lowell..The story of Reno Moran, whose sister you have met in a previous book.
You have to love this writer. From her first, to her last, always a winner,
Elizabeth Lowell at her best
Loved story. Would read series again
I am so impressed with this story, it is hard to put into words my feelings! As I was reading it, I felt like I was right there next to the characters, riding the wild west in search of gold. The romance parts were well written and exquisitely executed. I can't give enough praise to Lowell for her work, and I can't wait to read the 4th installment in the Moran series! it is very easy to give it 5 stars!
WEhen the exquisite temptress he won in a card game runs off with the rest of his winnings, the sharpshooter vows to hunt her down......
These should be read in order; see listing below.
Matt âRenoâ Moran doesn't trust women. Evelyn Starr Johnson (Eve) is a very capable woman who has been caught in difficult circumstances. At the opening, Eve is playing cards with some killers. Up walks Reno and joins the game. Since the killers are suspicious of Eve's handling of the cards, she decides to give the winning hand to the new man. The pot includes Eve (!), a gold ring, pearls and a Spanish treasure map. When the cards are shown, a gunfight ensues and Eve runs with the ring, pearls and treasure map.
The rest of the story is about Reno catching up with Eve, their avoiding the killers and searching for the gold.
