Enjoyed this story set in the old west. Makes me want a cowboy of my very own. The story was great, had a great pace, some new twists and turns and great characters. Love re-reading this book.

An excellent read from E. Lowell. I missed it when it came out, and was glad to find it through PBS.

Sara Kennedy made the only decision she could in order to protect her baby brother and keep from starving. She answered an ad for a mail-order bride. But, it cost her a great deal. Case Maxwell is dead to all feeling because of his experiences with the war, and is set on vengeance. When he meets Sara he begins to feel again, and fights it as long as he can. The two abused souls find a great deal in common, and fight together to gain a peaceful life.

3 of 5 stars. The protagonists meet in the first scene in a case of lust at first sight. Her lovable qualities are apparent throughout the book, so it's believable that he falls for her. I wasn't so sure what drew her to him beyond good looks. The action takes place in a small valley in the frontier west; spanish silver and her need to find it before the nearby bandits do carry the plot outside the love story. Supporting characters include her little brother, a devoted old outlaw and his woman, and Hunter (from Autumn Lover). I found the relationship between the heroine and her supporting characters to be the best part of the novel. She's a strong character throughout, and she saves her own day in the end. There's one dream-sex scene which I could have done without, but overall I'd recommend Winter Fire as a good western romance.

From Publishers Weekly
Bestselling paperback romance novelist Lowell (Autumn Lover) makes her first foray into hardcover with this smoothly written post-Civil War western romance. Shortly after the death of her parents in a flood, 14-year-old Sarah Kennedy, now responsible for herself and her younger brother, Conner, becomes a mail-order bride, marrying a brutal older man who drinks and demands painful sex. Widowed two years later, she strives to maintain her farm in the Utah wilderness, where she lives with Conner, an outlaw named Ute and an ex-prostitute known as Big Lola. When she meets Case Maxwell, who is hunting down the Culpepper gang for murdering his niece and nephew, Sarah is still quite certain that she hates sex. But after he is shot in her backyard, she can't help surreptitiously peeking at Case's bulging loincloth while she's patching up his handsome, bullet-riddled body. While he finds her equally irresistible, he firmly resists the idea of marriage or children. His desire for revenge against the Culpepper gang is matched by Sarah's quest to find a silver treasure that she knows is buried near her property. Case agrees to help Sarah find the cache, but suddenly there is a crisis when Conner falls into the hands of the vicious Ab Culpepper. Case proves himself a hero, and the finale is a rousing, old-fashioned shoot-'em-up worthy of Louis L'Amour. Though the dialogue is sometimes sappy, Lowell keeps her entertaining story moving briskly. (Nov.) FYI: Lowell also writes SF fantasy under the name Ann Maxwell and, as A.E. Maxwell, she coauthors mystery and suspense novels with her husband, Evan Maxwell.

Back Cover summary

Orphaned at thirteen, a mail-order bride at fourteen, widow at sixteen, Sarah Kennedy has learned to depend upon no on but herself-reseving all her love for her younger brother Conner, and for the wounded hawks she heals and returns to the air.

A hardened Civil War veteran, personal tragedy has taught Case Maxwell three thing: to be a patient, deadly fighter, to love nothing that can die; and that justice is blind. But when a confontation with his sworn enemies, the Culpeper clan, leaves him near death, Case finds himself, like many another damaged wild creature, under the tender, unwanted care of Sarah Kennedy.

But the intense emotion both Case and Sarah fear--the passion that burns like fire in the very heart of winter--is the only thing that can truly save them, as together they seek the courage to face the greatest risk of all: love.
