Books by Elizabeth Lowell

Moving Target

As a long-time fan of Elizabeth Lowell, I've been looking forward to her latest novel Moving Target, which merges her medieval Disputed Lands trilogy with her more recent contemporary suspense work. Somehow she manages to include guest appearances by three Donovans and tie in her Blackthorn family ...

Enchanted

The third book in Elizabeth Lowell's Disputed Lands series, Enchanted rounds out the series with a story as gripping and enjoyable as its prequels, Untamed and Forbidden. Like the other two, I've been reading and re-reading this book for several years, yet it never fails to keep me eagerly turning p ...

Beautiful Dreamer

In the past, I have really enjoyed Elizabeth Lowell's books. A Woman Without Lies is one of my favorite romances and I've enjoyed the Donovan family series as well. Unfortunately, Beautiful Dreamer didn't live up to my expectations. Hope is a woman who dreams of water. She needs water ...

Midnight in Ruby Bayou

Rubies, ghosts, and a bayou - oh my! With Midnight in Ruby Bayou, Elizabeth Lowell concludes the Donovan quartet with a romantic thriller that moves from Seattle to the Low Country of Georgia. Jewelry designer Faith Donovan needs protection. Someone stole a fortune in precious rubies from the Sov ...

Remember Summer

With early Elizabeth Lowell, it's a hit or miss proposition. The many series romances I've read by her that were written in the 1980's are all replete with "Lowell-speak," that type of purple prose that goes way over the top, as well as the heightened sensuality that, if it were real life, would cau ...

Pearl Cove

Pearl Cove is the first Elizabeth Lowell book I've read, but it certainly won't be my last. From the first page, I was drawn into a suspenseful plot, fascinating information about pearls and the pearl industry, and most of all, the larger-than-life characters of the Donovan family. Ten years ago, ...

Only His

Only His was my first introduction to Elizabeth Lowell a number of years ago and today she is one of my very favorite writers. This book is not only historical romance at its very best, but romance at its very best. Only His is the first in the Only series, a quartet of western historicals written a ...

Jade Island

Sigh, I never thought I'd live to see the day when Elizabeth Lowell, mistress of the long and sensual love scene, would write a quickie. Jade Island is the second in Ms Lowell's series about the Donovan family. In this one, Kyle Donovan, who is an expert on gems, meets Lianne Blakely, the ill ...

Jade Island

I like to cover all my bases as a general rule, especially with an author who is new for me. That's why I read Elizabeth Lowell's Amber Beach before reading Jade Island. I wanted to get a feel for the Donovan clan, how they felt about each other and the world around them. In general, I was not disap ...

Amber Beach

Just how interested are you in boating and amber? If you don't know now, you will after you read Amber Beach, a book in which each of these subjects are discussed in elaborate detail. I discovered I was fairly interested in the amber, but not the boating. This pretty much sunk the first half of this ...
