Has anyone read these?  Unfortunately, I started in the middle of the series with Forbidden and then read Enchanted.  Both were lovely romances.  I loved the way Amber could feel others' emotions by touching them.  There was just the right amount of fantasy/mysticism without being overwhelming since I don't usually read fantasy.


Is Untamed (the first one) as good as the other two?  I loved the hero Simon in Enchanted.  He was one of the "nicest" heros ever. 


I think she only has 3 medievals, unfortunately.  Elizabeth Lowell in a pen name for Ann Maxwell, I understand.

She has some good westerns.


A great medievel one: The Maid of Lorne by Terri Brisben. This is the 1st romance book I ever read.  She's Scottish and her father (he's an Earl or something) goes against the English king and loses of course.  The Englishman sent to take over her home gives her a choice "Wed or Dead by nightfall".  Of course she chooses wed.  But then she's torn between falling in love with her husband, who's really not a bad guy or helping her father regain his lands.  His men hate her for being the enemy's daughter and her people think she's whoring herself out to the invader.  I'm suddenly in the mood to reread this book.

I really like these - Forbidden is my favorite. Untamed is my least favorite, but still good. Claudia, I have great dark recommendation for you - To Have and to Hold by Patricia Gaffney. Are you still reading dark?

BTW, I just noticed that Jennifer O has all three of these books and is running a 2-4-1 deal right now.

I loved all 3 and something really cool is that is one of Lowell's "modern" suspense books, MOVING TARGET,  has a character descended from the characters in the medieval books
