Diana Saxton had come to Colorado's mesa country to explore the Anasazi cliffs. She didn't want---or need---the help of Tennessee Blackthorn, a man who had her teetering between her dark past and the heat of the moment.
History had taught them both valuable lessons. And where yesterday's pain had made them prisoners...now only trust could set them free.
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)
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.
I am enjoying the McKenzie's and Rocking M ranch. This is a good story, I liked the action, tension and beautiful descriptions of the area. I wish she had given abit more back ground on each of the characters. They were somewhat flat. Still a good read.
