Granite Man Author:Elizabeth Lowell Returning to her sprawling Colorado ranch with nothing but her battered car and a treasure map, Mariah MacKenzie encounters prospecting partner Cash McQueen, an argumentative, burly type who becomes all too aware of Mariah's innocence.
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)
