Granite Man (MacKenzie-Blackthorn, Bk 4) (Silhouette Desire, No 625)
Granite Man - MacKenzie-Blackthorn, Bk 4 - Silhouette Desire, No 625 Author:Elizabeth Lowell HEART OF STONE — Cash McQueen was a hard man, a man who believed in the land and nothing else. With the land, a man knew where he stood. It was different with a woman. There wasn't one alive who could be trusted -- and Mariah MacKenzie was no exception. — The minute she showed up at the Rocking M Ranch with not much more than the clothes on he... more »r back and a map of a longlost gold mine, Cash knew she was trouble. Yet he couldn't seem to stop wanting her brand of trouble. But nothing would ever again make him place his trust in a woman -- not even a woman he wanted as badly as Mariah MacKenzie.« less
After 15 years, Mariah is reunited with her long lost brother. It is at his ranch where she also meets his best friend Cash. Cash thinks she's just another woman looking for a 'free ride' & vows to avoid falling for her contrived vulnerability.
Mariah is a 22 yr old virgin who has spent most of her sheltered life in her studies at boarding school. She is almost immediately attracted to the tall, sexy stranger. But she is as naive as she is inexperienced.
A light, sensuous love story. Enjoyable, albeit predictable. (4 Stars)
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.
