Owner of the wildest, loneliest ranch this side of the Rockies, Luck MacKenzie hadn't laid eyes on Carla McQueen for three years. Not since they day he'd sent his best friend's kid sister storming from the Rocking M Ranch and out of his life -- for what ... more »he thought was forever . . . Now Carla was back, lovelier and even more desirable than in his burning memories. But Luke knew he could never give in to the raging need to make her his woman. For he'd made a vow long ago -- one that he was determined to keep -- that he would never fall in love with Carla McQueen. No matter how badly his body and soul ached for her . . .« less
These four books have the laugh and cry moments in them, with cry mostly toward the end (until the happy ending of course, they are romances after all!)
The four connected SD's in order are
Fire and Rain - Luke MacKenzie and Carla McQueen
Outlaw - Tennessee Blackthorn (ramrod on Luke's ranch) and Diana Saxton
Granite Man - Cash McQueen (Carla's brother) and Mariah MacKenzie (Luke's sister)
Warrior - Nevada Blackthorn (Tennesse's brother) and Eden Summers
Warrior is my favorite of the bunch, but all are pretty good. The only complaint is the story patterns are very similar across the four books. At least the characters are different and the details. They are still fun to read. There is also a hunt for Mad Jack's gold mine that runs across several of the stories.
Reckless Love is a western adventure. It is a distant pre-quel to the four Silhouette Desires. It is the story of Janna Wayland and Ty MacKenzie. Mad Jack is a character in this book and a legend by the time of the four follow-ups.
