You can't go wrong with a Johanna Lindsey book! I loved that the tables were turned in this book and the woman was the "tough" character. She even strolls into saloons and buys herself drinks! The gunfight in her fancy dress was funny too. The steaminess factor is a bit tame, but regardless this was a great book.

A westerner romance! I adore this book as well. I really hate to give it away, it left a huge impact on me. Finally a book where the female isn't the weak dainty one! Great story.

She leaves home and disguses as a bounty hunter named Kid. She helps out a man who has left the city to find his fathers killer but is not that good with his gun. Finding out later she is female then the attraction begins.

"All I Need Is You" is alright for a Lindsey. It's not awful, but neither it is a page-turner. "All's" story is straightforward enough: Damian hires a bounty hunter to find his father's murderer only to fall for the bounty hunter, a girl named Casey who is determined to succeed at a man's job to prove to her her father that she can run a rannch. What the story lacks is passion. So much time is spent on discussing the murder and chasing the bad guy that the romance part comes up short. I didn't devour this book, like I did it's prequel, the marvelous "A Heart So Wild." I wish Casey & Damian of "All" had half the passion that Chandos & Courtney of "A Heart" had. I also wish the "bad situations" that Casey found herself in really seemed threatening, but both her showdown and kidnapping were predictable and not at all exciting. Big sigh. Worse was the tacked-on ending revolving around Damian's mother. Lindsey seems to love having belated parent-child reunions in her books ("Angel," "So Speaks the Heart," "Defy Not the Heart" to name a few). I'd recommend reading "A Heart So Wild" over reading "All I Need Is You." "A Heart" is a prime example of a REAL steamy, sexy Western romance, while "All" (with it's lack of charisma and excitement) is more a girl-oriented murder-mystery than romance.

Casey is determined to run her grandfather's ranch, adjacent to her family's, until her brother comes home from school. Her father is equally determnined that she will not. Casey decides to work as the most mannish, most risky occupation she can think of to show her father that she can handle the management of the ranch. While masquerading as the "Kid" bounty hunter, a tenderfoot appoaches her camp one night. She spends the next several weeks rescuing him, while keeping out of site of her father, who is trailing her. Cute story.
