Summary

This New York Times best-selling author holds a Romance Writers of America Lifetime Achievement Award. With more than eight million copies of her books in print, Elizabeth Lowell has won a huge following of readers who yearn for romance as much as she does.

Left alone on her family's Civil War-ravaged farm, Willow Moran wants to find her gold-mining brother in the Colorado Rockies and start a new life. Dark, strong, unsmiling Caleb Black is going to be her guide. As threatening as he seems, this former army scout is Willow's best hope for a safe passage through the treacherous mountains past comancheros and Indian renegades. But torn between his need for a woman and his thirst for vengeance, Caleb has his own reasons for helping the innocent young Willow.

Characteristic of Elizabeth Lowell's books, Only His offers an exciting world of heightened passion and warm sensuality. Richard Ferrone's tantalizing narration lets listeners experience the thrill of a dangerous liaison from the safety of an armchair.

I love early Elizabeth Lowell books!

Good story with a reality about it! It is read perfectly which is a bonus to a real favourite of mine. If you like historical romance then the four books on this series should give you that warm cosy feeling on a stormy night. Don't expect graphic sex or strong language just charters you like as well as some action with well researched historical detail. I know some find the descriptions of the landscape too much but I find they add to the story. I say enjoy!

Audiobooks should have ratings...

I purchased this audiobook because it seemed like something that would interest me, and it did.
But I would have loved it if it had not included the many many sex scenes in it. If this were a movie, it probably would be rated R at minimum.
The story itself is written beautifully, and has a great flow to it. So if you enjoy the hot and steamy love scenes, then you may want to get this. If you tend to enjoy cleaner romantic novels, then this is not for you.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!

Lowell has written a beautiful story that I read many years ago, the narration is outstanding and only added to a wonderfull listening experience. The narrator did a wonderful job in bringing a favorite book to life, well worth the credit. Highly recommend to romance readers but especially to those who like westerns!!! Will purchase the next one in the series.

Good Series

Strong, solid characters and a good storyline. The romance is hot and yet sweet and endearing. Blends well with the other books in the series. Good choice from a great author!

What a great western Romp

Any additional comments?

This book sat in my wish list for months until i finally felt like something different than ii normally buy so bought Only His. I found the book very good with a strong male and female lead. There were the usual goodies verses baddies plus beautiful Arabian Horses and lots of hot and sexy lust/love scenes. Richard Ferrone is a wonderful narrator and help my interest the entire book. I must say Only His i a great addition to my ever increasing audio book library..

the "Only" series

This is the first book in the "Only" series by Elizabeth Lowell and all of them are worth five stars. They are all beautiful love stories that melt your heart and have some really steamy scenes.

Hearing it Read by a Man Highlights the MIsogyny

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Actually, nothing could have.

What was most disappointing about Elizabeth Lowell’s story?

The repetitive trope of men not believing women. Throughout this series

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Ferrone mispronounces "tarpaulin" to disturbing excess.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The sex scenes are pretty solid

Any additional comments?

There were times I actually considered the possibility this series was written by a man trying to convince women that they are terrible.

Slow First Half

Well written and narrated, but there wasn't much to it. I almost stopped listening in the first half of the book, but I stuck with it because of the favorable reviews, hoping it would get better. The second half was better, and it ended well, but it's not a book I would listen to again.

Not worth a credit, in my opinion.

Could not finish.

I listened for 9.5 Audible hours to this slow-burn romantic travel adventure, and with 3 hours to go, I have stopped, unable to go on. I can guess the rest of the story. The audio recording was made in 2008 with one older sounding male narrator reading both main characters’ points of view. It’s not working for me. Even modern narrators of my preference probably can’t save this style of story for me. Perhaps I’m too old for it. I am discovering I am an impatient reader and need the story to move along at a more clipped pace.

The story also involves a heroine pretending to be married in order to secure safe passage across the 1800s American plains with her virtue in tact. While the hero suspects she is fibbing about being married, he can’t be sure. It bothered me that the heroine’s marital state, whether real or not, was important and they both ignored that. It FELT like they were cheating even though they weren’t. Is that weird of me? Both characters kept secrets and the hero manipulated the heroine, so I was unsatisfied that lies provided the foundations for love, and accordingly, I couldn't buy into it. Other readers may not feel the same as me because they might love this slow pace and narrator. And, presumably the whole truth and real feelings are revealed eventually.

I recommend you listen to the Audible sample and/or read the Kindle one on Amazon to help you decide. You might love it. Unfortunately, I didn’t.
