Warrior Author:Elizabeth Lowell As a biologist, Eden Summers hyad confronted all kinds of wild creatures, but never had she encountered any as gloriously untamed as Nevada Blackthorn. Life had taught this defiant warrior some painful lessons. Now he believed in survival and nothing else. Yet Eden saw a gentleness behind the man's steely self-control, and she longed to tame... more » his wild heart...and sooth his restless soul.« less
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.
