Oldies but Goodies- 3
Today, I have chosen the book's of Leigh Greenwood. What's unique about Leigh's books is the author himself. That's right, Leigh is Mr. Greenwood. If you check his website he has an interesting section 'about' himself, and how he became a romance novelist.
I first read Mr. Greenwood's books years ago. I believe he's been writing since around 1990. Out of my favorite book's cache I have recently re-read “Someone Like You.”
What's nice about Mr. Greenwood's books is that he follows the romantic format plots, but he puts in enough twists and turns to keep you wanting to turn the page. And of course, it's interesting to read love scenes between a couple knowing they were written by a man.
And no, I'm not biased just because he is a fellow North Carolinian. OK, maybe I am, but I'm not saying.
At nineteen, Rafe Jerry had discovered the woman he adored in bed with another lover – his father. Ordered off the family’s California ranch, he swore never to return and ran away to war. The harsh realities of battle had made a crack soldier of him, but a traitor in the ranks had turned him into a man to be feared. He would not rest until he achieved revenge.
Rafe rode for California with two goals – tracking down Laveau di Viere and breaking his father’s will. He would never run Rancho los Alamitos for the beautiful yet treacherous widow; he would not help her raise his vulnerable young half brother; he refused to give in to his longing for Maria de la Guerra, the first woman to touch his hardened heart. But with Laveau on the attack and all he held most dear at risk, Rafe realized the one thing he could not fight was love.

So, for a hard riding cowboy and a bit more than a touch of romance- Leigh Greenwood 's your man.
