Dangerous Refuge by Elizabeth Lowell - spotlight & review

Today the tour stops here!
Dangerous Refuge

By: Elizabeth Lowell


Beautiful, sweet Shaye and dark, dangerous Tanner don’t have a lot in common. He’s a suspicious big city cop come home to his family’s ranch and she’s a bleeding heart who works for a group that seeks out ranches to conserve after the owners have passed away.
But the suspicious death of Tanner’s uncle at his ranch throws the two opposites together and sparks fly.

Working as a pair, using Shay’s sweet personality and town connections, as well as Tanner’s experience, they set out to find justice - they never expected to find love along the way as well.

They both say it will just be temporary but when Shay is put in danger, Tanner realizes that he’ll give up just about anything to save the woman he loves. But will he have to sacrifice his life to save hers?
Author Info:
Elizabeth Lowell’s many remarkable historical and contemporary novels include New York Times bestsellers, Forget Me Not, Only Love, A Woman Without Lies, Autumn Lover and Winter Fire. Amber Beach, Jade Island, Pearl Cove and Midnight in Ruby Bayou were also instant New York Times bestsellers. Ms. Lowell has more than twenty million books in print. She lives in Nevada with her husband with whom she writes mystery novels under a pseudonym.
It's been many years since I read an Elizabeth Lowell novel. Why is that? You may ask...simple, I read every single historical she put out & then I stopped reading the historical genre altogether. I never bothered to read any of her contemporary novels she put out (or many other of my favorite historical authors that put out contemporary for that matter) I had just moved on to new to me authors in new to me genres.
I was given the opportunity to read & review this contemporary romance by Elizabeth Lowell and I jumped on the chance. I am so glad I did. I should have known it would be great because all the historicals I read of hers were fantastic! This was no different! It was her great writing as usual (smacks head for being stupid)
This book was so fast paced & intriguing that I read it in one sitting. It opens with a great "who dunnit" mystery that had me baffled for almost 3/4's of the book. I loved the "back & forth" between Shaye & Tanner. Shaye seemed sweet and innocent of life except when it came to tough guy Tanner, where she showed she could hold her own in conversation & hard loving! These two were a perfect pair and balanced each other well.
 I absolutely loved this book!
