Diana Saxton loved the archaeology of west--in particular, Anasazi ruins. The past is much safer for her than the present day with its unpredictable, dishonorable men.

Tennessee (Ten) Blackthorn is ramrod for the Rocking M, a remote western ranch where Anasazi ruins have recently been discovered. He is a lean, hard man who learned to fight in some of the worst backwaters of the world. His new job is to protect the ruins and the delectable blond archaeologist who wants nothing to do with him. Ten has gentled his share of wild animals, but none have intrigued him as much as the elusive Diana with both passion and fear in her beautiful eyes...

I did read this when it was first published. Since then I have re-read the book several times. A book that you will keep and treasure and love to relieve.

Ms. Lowell's stories are too good to past off. In terms of writing wonderful love stories, she's one of the bests. This was a very moving story with interesting characters. Don't miss it.

This was originally published in 1991. Excellent reading. ALL Lowell books are good regardless of original published date.

The men in Diana Saxton's life taught her a hard lesson in male strength. Now she sticks to her studies of civilizations long dead. Her heart may long for a child to hold, but she has no interest in the physical closeness it takes to create one. Spending the summer on the MacKenzie Ranch in September Canyon studying Anasazi pots sounds perfect - until circumstances saddle her with everything she fears in the form of Tennessee Blackthorn. She distrusts and fears the attraction she feels.Tennessee doesn't trust women - but he's strangely attracted to Diana - even though she's done everything but climb out the window to get away from him. But Blackthorn's don't marry. He can keep Diana safe, even teach her to trust again, but finding a future isn't something he expected.Sweet, sassy, traditionally formatted, but the characters are likeable and the writing is good.

I had a very hard time with this book. It is well written but the strong negativity of the primary character towards men was so severe that it made enjoying the book almost impossible. I understand the causes and dont blame her but when every paragraph has her making negative comments it destroys the enjoyment that reading give you. Not a good book at all, and not worth the cost

I read all of it, I really hate to completely give up on a book. There were things that bothered me. I didn't like when the hero calls the heroine "baby" and she accepts it so readily when she didn't trust or like men. At one point his brother talked about what a bad person Ten's wife was, and latter Ten tells Diana that he has never loved a woman or wanted to live with one, what about his former wife (?), could have done a bit of explaining there. All in all I didn't care for the story, but then when I read that it was originally published in the '90's it seemed to fit that era of story writing.
