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.
Good Lowell as usual, never disappoints.
Tennessee Blackthorn was a man to be reckoned with. Tall and commanding, the sexy ranch hand was aafraid of neither man nor beast..but he just might have met his match in diana. could she heal his wounded heart and make him forget the ache of the bitter lessons of the past (back cover)
