Throwback Thursday - Only His

It's been a busy week getting ready for the holiday, so this one will be brief:

Author: Elizabeth Lowell
First published in 1991 by HarperCollins Publishers

Escaping the ravages of the Civil War, a gently reared lady must leave behind everything she knows -- and trust her life and her future to a dangerous gunfighter with a passion for vengeance.

A team of prize Arabian horses is all that Willow Moran has left -- and Caleb Black is the only man who can help her reach her brother in the Colorado Rockies. But she fears this stranger who burns to avenge the wrongs of treacherous men. For Caleb is as wild and unpredictable as the uncivilized land he loves. Yet, though she challenges him at every turn, the spirited southern lady knows this proud, enigmatic loner is her destiny. And no matter what peril awaits, they must face it together -- for Willow has become a fever in Caleb's blood ... awakening a need so fierce that he would defeat the devil himself to possess her.

This one would have been on my top 10 books read in 2009, had I done a top 10 then. I loved everything about this book. Willow and Caleb are 2 characters that I really liked. Willow is feisty, strong, yet innocent at the same time. Caleb is my favorite type of hero. Only His has everything you could want in a great romance: love, adventure and a steamy relationship that develops slowly. Their first kiss alone is hotter than the average sex scene in a typical romance novel. Aside from romance, this story is also about second chances and learning to trust and love again. This is the first in her "Only" series. I have read the other 3, but this one is my favorite by far! If you haven't read it, give it a shot. Maybe it will become one of your top 10 in 2011! 5 stars!
