Great Western/Historical Romance novel, complete will all the substance only Elizabeth Lowell can bring to the pages. Better than most in the Harlequin genre.

Reckless Love is a western adventure. It is a distant pre-quel to 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.

The four 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.

This was a great story, liked the characters and the plot. It did drag some towards the end, at least in my opinion. Too much description of the valley,cliffs, overhangs and rocks, but still lots of action, back and forth tension between the two. A good read.

This book is a waste of time unless you like a hero who demeans and belittles the woman he takes to bed over most of the book. People might read this book if they enjoyed the rest of Lowells western-flavored stories and thought this was in the same vein. There are lots of l-o-n-g sex scenes interrupted by a bit of plot.

This story takes place in Utah Territory. The story starts out with a bang and I knew this just had to be a winner. Janna has lived alone in this wild land for 5 years since her father died when she was 14.

Using a spyglass, she is watching the most dangerous man in the territory, El Cascabel, and his renegades beat a nude white man as he runs the gauntlet. Just as it looks as if the man will succumb, he sprints away from the enraged renegades. A chase-to-the-death begins.

Because the man was obviously injured, Janna runs across the land, trying to intercept him. When they meet, Janna takes him to her private hiding place and cares for his wounds. Now both of them are in danger of experiencing El Cascabels terminal wrath.

Slowly, the tale starts to unwind in a blaze of trite and laughable descriptions and dialog. It seems that the author was padding the pages; there were countless descriptions of the mesas and canyons. I wont be reading the rest of this series.

No one who roamed the steep green mountains and red-rock canyons of Utah Territory was safe from El Cascabel and his renegade warriors-not Janna Wayland, not the wild stallion, Lucifer-not even Ty MacKenzie, the stranger who had come for the stallion, and stayed to capture Janna's heart. Now all three must join forces and make their escape, or die trying.
