Follows in the same theme as the first book in the series. If you like western romances with plucky females and alpha males, you will probably like this. ( )

Only Love by Elizabeth Lowell
1860's Colorado Rockies after the Civil War.
Mitt Moran a wanderer.
Shannon Connor Smith, a widow that's never been a wife.
The Culpepper's are the family that want control over everybody. They think Shannon's husband is the bounty hunter-Silent John and nobody's seen him for years.
She traded her gold wedding ring for food at the market-enough for just a few weeks.
Love book for the story and how she's survived on the land all this time, her friends and her dog.
Mitt had caulked the logs in her cabin, chopped her wood, killed a deer and other animals for her to cure for the winter and a lot of other chores she was not able to do herself.
Slow hot sex scenes and I love that she shared John's secret locationss with him.
Loved all the outdoor things in this book and learning new tips on tracking animals. Love how he just takes care of her.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

I miss when EL wrote like this. I prefer her older novels to her present day ones. The Only series is my favorites from her. ( )

Book description
Proud and courageous, cast adrift by the War Between the States, Shannon Conner has carved out a life for herself in the mountains. But now that she's become a target of the vile, predatory Culpepper brothers, she must turn to a stranger for help -- Rafael "Whip" Moran, an enigmatic wanderer tied to no place or promise. Intrigued by this intoxicating "widow" with a walk like honey and a tight grip on her shotgun, Whip is resolved to defend Shannon's honor and her life. But no peril in this high, lonely place is greater than the intense passion the lady inspires within him -- for it threatens to cost Whip the freedom that is as much a part of him as his soul.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380772566, Mass Market Paperback)

′There is no finer guarantee of outstanding romance than the name of Elizabeth Lowell′ - Romantic Times.

Cast adrift during the War Between the States, Shannon Conner grew to womanhood in a lonely cabin high in the Colorado Rockies. Though stubborn and courageous, Shannon is ill-prepared to deal with the predatory Culpepper brothers - and the intoxicating ardour of the man who defends her honour, Rafael ′Whip′ Moran.

A loner and a wanderer, a man tied to no place or promise, Whip aids the wary young ′widow′ who has a walk like honey and a determined grip on her shotgun. But neither the Culpeppers nor grizzlies are as dangerous to Whip as the passion Shannon offers him - a passion that could cost Whip the freedom that is as much a part of him as his soul.
