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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Love Linda's writing!"

    Enjoyable story and very good narration. Dee is a strong heroine which I love. Lucas is a good hero. A complete story with a good epilog.

    Story
    "Cowboys, Shoot-outs & Sizzling Romances!"

    "Angel Creek" is a story set in the small town of Prosper, Colorado in the late 1800s.

    The hero, Lucas Cochran, returns to take over the Double C Ranch after his fathers death, with plans of turning the already prosperous ranch into an empire. Needing more water, Lucas sets his sights on Angel Creek, a nearby land known for its rich soil and abundant water supply. But if he thought he could just ride into the property and throw his weight around, then he is in for a shock when he meets the defiant owner of Angel Creek, and her shotgun.

    You'll be drawn into the town of Prosper, and it's surrounding ranches, by the excellent performance of Natalie Ross...you'll feel the emotions of it's well developed characters. I loved the character of the strong, independent heroine, Dee Swann.

    I highly recommend Angel Creek as a refreshing addition to your Historical Romance Library.

    Story
    "Classic Linda Howard"

    More than likely, if you have enjoyed other Linda Howard novels, you will enjoy this one. I thought it started out a bit slow, but the storyline quickly picked up pace. Like Howard's other novels, this story features strong male and female leads with lots of arguments, sexual tension, and hot lovemaking. Personally, I wasn't sure if I was going to like historical fiction done by Linda Howard, but positioning the story in the Wild West is perfect for her writing style. It was a great to way to explain how a man and woman could flout conventional norms in order to spend a lot of time together alone. I also thought this was a bit of a departure from other books I've read by her in that while Dee & Lucas are the main characters, two other love stories make for a more interesting background.

    Natalie Ross was a decent, but not exactly great, narrator. Sometimes her male voices were a bit awkward. But it didn't distract from the story or make it less interesting.

    Story
    "Not Always an Easy Listen but a Compelling Listen"

    I read a few of the negative reviews and hesitated using a credit to get this book.

    I have recently been introduced to Linda Howard and honestly love the light and fluffy books (Open Season) as much as the paranormal (Cutting Edge) and the edgier dramas (Ice).

    This a book set in 1876 where women were property and property was rarely owned by women. The actions of the male lead seemed harsh and frankly sometimes disturbing but in that time and in that place he actually was much less a neanderthal and much more a metro-man than one would suspect.

    I thought this was an excellent use of my credit.

    I love a story that can educate me about a different time and place without feeling like I am being educated.
