Angel Creek | [Linda Howard]

Angel Creek

For five years after her father died, lithe, beautiful Dee Swann held on to Angel Creek valley and her independence. The homestead was hers, and she vowed no one else would ever own it...or her. Then Lucas Cochran came back to Colorado. In the drought-cursed high country, he needed Angel Creek and its cool water to turn his Double C ranch into the cattle dynasty he craved. His ruthless ambition guaranteed he would fight to take it away from the black-haired, green-eyed spitfire who claimed it.

Publisher's Summary

For five years after her father died, lithe, beautiful Dee Swann held on to Angel Creek valley and her independence. The homestead was hers, and she vowed no one else would ever own it...or her.

Then Lucas Cochran came back to Colorado. In the drought-cursed high country, he needed Angel Creek and its cool water to turn his Double C ranch into the cattle dynasty he craved. His ruthless ambition guaranteed he would fight to take it away from the black-haired, green-eyed spitfire who claimed it.

But the passion that blazed when Dee Swann and Lucas Cochran met shocked them both. Unbidden, unexpected, their kisses swept them toward a dangerous destiny where dreams might be scattered...men could be killed...or love would be born as wild and unfettered as this glorious frontier.

    "5-star narration, good historical western romance"

    Narration: Was excellent, Ross has a pleasing voice.

    Story: I personally found it good fun and easy listening. Hotness level is definitely steamy.

    The story was a bit cheesy at times, but it's a romance, so it was alright - I was totally expecting it. The characters were predictable, but it was to e expected in this type of novel. I'm still new to this genre, I'm usually more into Jane Austen, George Eliot type books, epic-fantasy (lotr, R.R. Martin, etc). But my line of work is so serious, and I read ALL DAY, so it's nice to have some easy listening, something not too serious.

    "Very sexual..."

    This book is WAY more sexual than I had expected for a historical western written over ten years ago. It happens to have a good storyline and likable characters as well, so I gave it a high rating. If you like your books with lots of heat, you won't be disappointed.

    "Hot and Wild Old West, Linda Howard does it again"

    Don’t let the story about the Old West keep you from getting this book. It turned out to be the Hot and Wild Old West. The relationship between the very likable main characters is sensual story and moving. Even the relationship between to of the secondary characters is sweet and moving. All in all it’s a good book. I would recommend it to other readers.

    "Great story"

    I loved this story, very believable. The secondary story was a little less intriging then the main but it was still very entertaining. The Narrator was very good as well. Steamy but not dirty.

    "A bit raw"

    Although a well-written and narrated story, the sexual interaction was a bit raw. Good historical and practical information about a woman living alone in the old west.

    "Still a great story second time around"

    "Great Western Historical Romance - Loved It"
    Would you listen to Angel Creek again? Why?

    Yes! I never know what I'm going to get with Linda Howard but I always love it.

    This was a historical romance set in the west. The Dee Swann is an independent, strong woman who has had to take care of herself for many years. Along comes the hero, Lucas, he wants to take care of Dee. He has to make compromises as does she. Each brings out the best in the other. It's a really good listen.

    The narrator does a good job as relaying the characters male & female

    Note: Mature themes

    Credit/$ worthy: Yes. However, I often find Linda Howard books on sale for $5.95 or during the BOGO or similar promotions.
