This book doesn't offer anything in the way of unpredictability or twists. However, what it does offer is a chemistry-filled love story that evokes surprisingly powerful emotions.

The story is not long, but Lowell expects readers to buy that two people who are nearly polar opposites in terms of temperament, life experiences, etc., can meet, fall in love, deal with the requisite scenario that tears them apart, and somehow find their way back to each other, all in less than 250 pages. Lowell has created two characters who are both actually interesting. Granted, Lisa is almost too naive, innocent, and sweet, but given her past, it works. Rye is pretty much the stereotypical discontent, rich bad boy, but his behavior isn't out of line with what he's gone through, courtesy of his father. Together, Lisa and Rye are simultaneously sweet and tender, and downright steamy - their chemistry is intense and pretty hot.

The best thing about this book, though, is that their love seems completely real and organic; it's very easy to buy the depth of their emotions (which certainly doesn't hold true for every romance novel). Rye and Lisa's story is surprisingly moving and deeply romantic, so I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to read a deep, pure love story.

from the back cover:

Lisa Johansen, world traveler, had tasted the exotic and seen the extraordinary. But when a rancher called Rye came into her life, he ignited a feverish desire foreign to her mind, her body, her soul....

Rye was certain Lisa was like the gold-digging women in his past. He'd been burned before, and he vowed he would make no more mistakes. Still, he found it hard to resist her. The sweet sting of her kisses tempted him to madness, and he knew he'd gotten dangerously close to the flame. But it was too late - he was addicted to the fire.

Having read "Dark Fire" first set me up for an idea of a plot - But I still couldn't have been more surprised! Lowell gets me time and again by turning your expectations upside down. This book gave me back what was not an exceptional experience for me. It didn't make me look back with regret, rather it helps me look at my current relationship and realize that I have found "it" too (you'll understand "it" after reading this book). This book exemplifies restraint and love and expectations. Of course, par the course for Lowell, the ending is twisting and turning until the couple end up together....Worth every minute it takes you to read, that's for sure!

Rye McCall has a problem. He's got an obsessive father who's trying to ensure a dynasty, but Rye's rebellious and determined to lead his own life. And to make matters worse, he's just met a woman who may thwart both men's plans. For one brief, high-country summer, Rye manages the impossible--to keep his father's world at bay. But he's lost control of his own plans--he's fallen in love with Lisa Johansen. Now he's told too many lies for his happiness to last. He knows that. What he doesn't know is how to finally tell her the truth.

This book doesn't offer up suspense, twists, turns, or surprises. What it does boast is a surprisingly effective love story.

What I didn't expect was that I *did* buy it. Lowell has created two characters who are both actually interesting. Granted, Lisa is almost too naive, innocent, and sweet, but given her past, it works. Rye is pretty much the stereotypical discontent, rich bad boy, but his behavior isn't out of line with what he's gone through, courtesy of his father.
