When wildlife biologist Eden Summers arrives in the Colorado Rockies, she has only one thing on her mind: to continue her research on the local cougar population. A capable woman, used to living and working alone in the wild, she is self-possessed and confident, able to handle any threat from nature's fiercest predators — until she gazes into the eyes of Nevada Blackthorn.

She pulled him, injured and bleeding, to safety in the middle of a storm, unleashing a man who would invade her deepest dreams. But Nevada — a rancher by trade, a warrior by nature — is a man who has learned that walking away from caring is the only key to survival and that only the strongest survive. Any woman fool enough to try and change him will be hurt — badly — for their efforts.

Perhaps Eden is that kind of fool. Or perhaps she has no choice but to follow a calling as fierce, as wild and as natural as the beating of her own heart . . .

145 pages on my nook for $5 is absurd when 130 pages are all "I want you more than anything but leave me alone". No story at all other than she tracks cougars which is about 5 pages. Pages and pages of ridiculous lust talk and finally the wing ding of all sex acts that took pages and pages. Do not waste your money on this terribly shallow "story". Bad purchase on my part!

After dissing the last Lowell I read (Granite Man) I hate to admit how much more I liked this book. Nevada is an uber-alpha (as are all Lowell's heroes) but he has a softer heart and doesn't believe all women are sluts. No, his flaw is that he doesn't believe in love (*rolls eyes*). I liked the heroine Eden, a wildlife biologist, who doesn't take any crap from him. But of course she's a virgin (*another eye roll*). My biggest peeve with this book was Lowell's signature characteristic which is so evident in many of her books: hero invents a nickname for the heroine. I hate that. Nevada's nickname for Eden is "fairy-tale girl". "Dear Ms. Lowell: ....STOP THAT!!!" Whew, sorry, lost control. With these irritations aside Warrior was quite a good book. Eden finds Nevada who has injured himself in the middle of a snow storm and takes him to safety. The mental lusting begins... really, dialog is not Lowell's strong suit. But I loved Baby, Eden's dog/part wolf, and the cougar tracking and scenery descriptions of the Colorado Rockies. (Grade: B-)

He may not be roaming the hills of Afghanistan any longer, but even after two years back on the Rocking M, Nevada Blackthorn hasn't lost the skills that kept him alive, or unlocked the emotions he stored away to keep from going insane. When he rescues a long-legged blond from a bar full of roughnecks bent on pressing their luck a little too far, he's captivated - but doesn't expect he'll see her again.Eden Summers came to the Rocking M to study cougars - she didn't expect to find a man. And when extends her love expecting only to be loved in return, she finds herself suddenly alone. Will Nevada come to his senses before he loses the best thing he ever had before Eden learns the same lesson life has taught Nevada - that surviving doesn't leave room for love.Of course it's happily ever after - but how they get there is quite a ride.

As timely now as it was when first written. A former solider returns to his family ranch. He is willing to help his family but otherwise wants to be left alone. A youung woman walks into his world seemingly too inocent and naive for her own good. Get out the tissue box because this ones is a tear jerker. This is no easy wounded man meets preaty girl and everything is all better book. Written in contemporary times.
