Book Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Romance Novel I've Ever Read!!! August 23, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was stunningly good, not only the best in the series, not only the best by Elizabeth Lowell, but the best romance I've ever read.
The conflict in this was so much more than you'll find in other romances - not the silly misunderstandings that are cleared up as soon as the man catches up with the woman, not the man's refusal to admit he loves a woman, but a real conflict about a man who's driven with a restless spirit that's so much a part of him he can't give it up. The human drama of the hero's struggle is portrayed so well you feel it all the way to your bones.
Commonly, one is tempted to feel contemptuous of the hero's hardheardedness or plain stupidity. However, in this book, the hero is entirely sympathetic, the conflicts spelled out, both characters understanding what they feel and what they need and how to reconcile the two.
There's a scene in a cave near the end that is absolutely cinematic in its timing, drama, and visuals that it conjures up. I was amazed. After I read this book, I sat for a full five minutes just contemplating what I'd just read, and how good it was. I am not a gusher, but this novel is the pick of the litter, immensely sophisticated and satifsying. Thanks ,Elizabeth Lowell!

5.0 out of 5 stars It was the sweetest book I've ever read! April 7, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Elizabeth Lowell is a great writer. I love how she seems topull you into the story and into the characters' lives, pain, joy, andesctasy. Whip is a wanderlust man who's always searching for something he can't name, something he calls "the sunrise he've never seen". The most exciting part of the book is waiting for Whip to finally realizing his foolishness and accepted his most desired "sunrise". Another thing why I like this novel is because unlike other stories, the hero actually have to put some efforts into winning the heroine's heart first, while in the others, all the hero has to do is stands there and the heroine is swooned with his masculinity and maleness that she just falls to her knees in front of him. That's the sweet part in this novel, the best out of the "Only" series. END

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as the others in the series April 3, 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoy Lowell. She's one of my favorites. Somehow in my reading, I'd overlooked this latest book in the series. Don't know how! I expected something as wonderful as ONLY YOU, Reno and Eve's story. This book had all the makings to satisfy that urge. The opening pages were wonderful and I liked the characters. Then a funny thing happened--I stopped understanding them. Whip, despite the fact he cared about Shannon in a way he'd never cared about anyone, knew he couldn't stay because he was a yondering man. What??? That's his only reason for leaving. He wasn't sure he could hack staying in one place? Lowell tried to give a reason why he thought remaining in Colorado will kill his soul, but I wasn't buying it. Shannon also didn't make any sense. Why on earth would you stay in a cabin where you might easily starve or freeze to death over the winter, or if you weren't, be raped by the odious Culpepper brothers? Why not go to the nearest town and find some job? I never understand these characters who are willing to risk death to prove a minor point. It wasn't like she loved this cabin or had anything truly sentimental to hold her there. Whip said leave, so she said no. That was their conflict. If you can swallow all that and keep reading, the writing is beautiful, as usual. The emotions were poignant and touching. The story is vivid, and Lowell even like this is still better than a whole bunch of the romances out there. It's worth a read, especially if you don't expect the sizzling conflict of ONLY YOU.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the "Only" series December 3, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is the last in the "Only" series and clearly the best. It's set in the Rocky Mountains, like the other three, and the descriptions of the scenery are great. You really get a feeling that the characters are there; it's not like a cheesy romance novel that could take place anywhere. The characters are richly described and have many aspects; it's not like they are just two cardboard people who come together by some unbreakable bond and live happily ever after. Lowell always has tiny women and huge men, but in this novel, he's actually nice. In the second "Only" book, the big guy was abusive and I hated the novel. This is definately a fun read and worth the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great frontier romance! June 21, 2001
By mirope
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Elizabeth Lowell's "Only" series offers the best romance novels set in the American West, and "Only Love" is a great conclusion to the series. The romance at the heart of the story has great emotional intensity and will be immensebly satsifying to romance readers. What particularly impressed me with this book was Lowell's vivid description not only of the hazards and difficulties of frontier life, but I was also moved by the enormous difficulties for women on the frontier unlucky enough to be without reliable male protection. Like the heroine in this story, Shannon, these women had to struggle with the common obstacles to survival while simultaneously protecting themselves in a relatively lawless land where single women were seen as fair game. What was particularly nice about this novel is that Shannon was not looking for a man to help make her life easier; she will only surrender her independence for true love. All in all, a very satisfying book.
