While browsing I noticed that some of her older books have been reprinted.  These books are REALLY good.

Fire And Rain & Outlaw: Fire And Rain\Outlaw

Granite Man & Warrior

Too Hot To Handle / Sweet Wind, Wild Wind

I just wanted to recommend them in case others haven't read them. They are contemporary set in the Colorado region.  I should order them for my keeper shelf, they are that good.

I'm still ticked Utah never got his story in this series...Outlaw and Warrior were his 2 brothers but he never got a book :-(

Yes Susanna it always feels like there is something missing.....for years I didn't know that she had just never written that story.  Too bad.  I always thought the books I mentioned were SO hot......the h/h burned up the pages before they even touched each other.  That lady could write steam!!!  But I don't read her romantic suspense. I read the medeival trilogy years ago and enjoyed that also.  But those contemps written in the west....there is just nothing like them.  Makes me want to move there!  She was SO good when she wrote those.....

I read 'tell me no lies' and really liked it. I want to read that other series that starts with amber beach..I've read a couple but want to read them all in order. I think she stopped that series after the ruby story...

Thanks for the info Anne. I've just recently rediscovered Elizabeth Lowell and I am starting with the Only series.  I know I read a few of hers in the past, but I can't recall which ones.  I look forward to reading more of her now.

Speaking of which, there's a book I remember reading sometime in the 90's. I am pretty sure it was an Elizabeth Lowell book. It was a contemporary set out west and there is something about precious gems and a canyon?  If anyone can help me with the title, I'd really love it, but then again, maybe I dreamed the whole thing, lol.

Brenda the Only series is great too.   Its set out west and there are canyons.  Do you remember if it was a historical or contemporary?

 Reckless Love is another great historical.

I loved Only His (#1) and Only Love (#4) in the Only series,and did not like Only You and Only Mine - the heroines in those 2 drove me nutz!

I did a search on Elizabeth Lowell and the keywords "canyon" and "gems" and came up with Lover in the Rough - is that it?

It is Lover in the Rough! Thanks so much!

I am going to put Reckless Love on my reminder list.

I like Elizabeth Lowell.  I've read most of her historicals. 

I have Granite Man/Warrior and Tell Me No Lies in Mt TBR.

Thanks for this recommendation Anne.  I absolutely loved Fire and Rain and Outlaw.  I brought them on vacation with me, but left the rest of them at home.  I'm just itching to get back home and finish the rest of the books in the series.  I knew I should've brought them with me.

I read an Elizabeth Lowell book one time and was disappointed and never gave her another chance.  I think these books are probably oldies, but goodies by her.

Oh boy, I can't even decide which of Lowell's books I like best. I've read all her category romances, but still have to read her later romantic suspense/thriller types. Though I did recerntly read her book THE WRONG HOSTAGE  which I think is the first in her St. Kilda series (?).

So many books, so little time. Why am I online - I should be reading.
