“A thrilling love story.”—Midwest Book Review
“This premier storyteller proves an ordinary love story can still win your heart, and even an inevitable confrontation may scare you silly.”—Publishers Weekly
“Another Roberts masterpiece...Once again, she creates compelling characters and produces a story that grabs your attention and doesn’t let go until the last pages.”—McClatchy-Tribune News Service
“As in previous Roberts novels, well-fleshed-out characters add emotional punch to the action. The juxtaposition of animal and human predators eloquently points out where true viciousness lies. Twin love stories are beautifully woven throughout the gripping suspense. This is one of Roberts' best!”—RT Book Reviews

First that disastrous first Bride book and now this....as long as she is out of ideas: please stop writing and asking money from unsespecting readers for the same as before. If anybody feels reminded of Montana Skye, well seems like she just shook the ingredients a little and almost the same pops out... wild West country, strong law man, or former lawman, indian heritage, 2 people who have known each other for ages..., the killer on the hunt....Montana Skye was really good, but this is just boring. Don't waste your money on this one, get the original Montana Skye and rather enjoy this.
In diesem Zusammenhang ist es erstaunlich, daß die beiden letzten Bücher aus der Dallas-Serie so gut waren. Vielleicht sollte sich Roberts darauf konzentrieren und nicht zwingend jedes Jahr mindestens drei Neuerscheinungen produzierend. In diesem Fall wäre vermutlich weniger mehr.
Dr. Lilian Chance is living her dream. She built up the Chance Wildlife Refuge in the Black Hills where she cares for animals. She lives a satisfying and happy life but could never forget her first (and only) love Cooper Sullivan. They met as children on her parents farm in the Black Hills, fell in love as teenagers and broke up some time later. While he ended up in New York as a cop Lil never left her home.
Even today, 12 years later, Lil is still in love with Cooper. When he comes back to the Black Hills to stay he wants another chance with Lil. He's still in love with her and when someone starts making trouble for Lil and her Refuge he is there to help. Soon they find out that there is a serial killer on the loose who likes to hunt his prey and who plans to make Lil his next victim. Cooper is there to make sure that Lil stays safe and to win her back.
But in the end it's up to Lil to decide if she can trust Cooper again and to outwit the killer.
I love everything about "Black Hills". The characters are great and the scenery (Black Hills plus the wildlife) is so lively described that sometimes I felt like I was actually there.
Lil is an awesome heroine. She is a strong and caring woman who has been fascinated by the wildlife since she was nine. She is very sure about her goals in life and works hard to achieve them.
She loved Cooper practically from their first meeting and never thought that they could break up. Cooper also never stopped loving Lil but growning up with cold and uncaring parents made him uncertain about himself. He needed more time than Lil to build up his life and to become the person he wanted and needed to be. He never intended to break her heart, he honestly thought that ending their relationship was the best for Lil and him.
I enjoyed reading about their relationship as children, teens and adults a lot. Especially because the changes in their relationship aren't rushed and I can understand Lil's fear to be hurt again but I also love how Cooper stays steady in pursuing her and is solid as a rock but also very sexy.
Furthermore the book contains a really sweet second lovestory, all the characters are great and very likable (ok, all besides the creapy and crazy serial killer) and the end is breathtaking. So all in all "Black Hills" is an outstanding book that you shouldn't miss.
This book is incredible, has everything I'd look for since I normally don't like stories about crime or thrillers all that much.
But "Black Hills" contains a bit of everything:
- You got the love story between Lil an Coop that started out as innocent childhood friendship before sparks flew between the young
adults. They (or rather Coop) broke it off after realizing the long-distance relationship didn't seem to function and so Lil could go
after her dreams and build the Wildlife Refuge she'd already wanted as a child. He knew she'd have given all of that up for him if
they continued to try to make it work. Coop returns to the hills 12 years later and wants his girl back and has to try hard,
because back in the day he'd left her shattered and without any real explanation. I'd say I don't want to tell you the end of it bit
it's kind of obvious it'll be a happy one :)
- You got a lot of suspense that's being postponed until the last few pages. A crazy man who claims to be descendant of Crazy Horse
seesLil's refuge as a disgrace to his people as he knows that Lil's great-grandfather was also Sioux. He thinks animal's should be
free and left to their fate when they got hurt and would die without Lil's help. He considers himself a hunter, he sometimes hunts
to eat but mostly kills innocent people because they're invading "his" land or lone hikers for "training". As I mentioned he's after
Lil now, threatens her with an email and a phone call, kills a cougar she caged to observe and one time hangs a dead wolf over her
entrance gate. The suspense builds up slowly at first but then it hits all at a moment you wouldn't think it does and stretches out
until the very end of the book.
I recommend the book very much, you'll love it :)
