Lil was very reluctant to let him back in after she was hurt. There is a secondary romance that is really sweet, and I wish the author had spent more time on them. The couple is BWWM. The hot cowboy pursues this few years older woman and romances her to pieces.

Baby was my favorite of all the animals especially since he had followed Lil and he was her favorite also. Lil and Coop's relationship showed that you never get over your first love.

It also showed that there are always obstacles w I loved Lil and Coop together. It also showed that there are always obstacles when it comes to the people you love.

When it comes to the people you love you will do whatever you can to keep them safe. One quote that I liked: So it makes you happy, or miserable?

It makes you sick in the belly or hurt in the heart. It makes everything brighter and sharper, or it blurs all the edges. It makes you feel like a king or a fool. This is probably one of my favorite NR books. It was a re-read that still kept me turning pages. First, I loved the secondary characters and the secondary romance in this one.

Black Hills

It brought a lot of depth to an already good story. What was not to love about Coop's grandparents, Lil's parents and Tansy and Farley? The Chance Animal Reserve was great backdrop, especially Baby the cougar.

Jun 13, Carmaletta Hilton rated it did not like it. The only reason I finished this book was because I wanted to see how the end scene played out. I assumed that the bad guy would kidnap her and I wanted to see what happened there. Honestly, the only good thing I can say about this book was that it was pretty cool the way Baby came to the rescue.

The rest of this book was just not fun for me. I couldn't fully get behind Lil's refuge because while I understand some of the animals there, I don't really agree with taking an animal out of its natural The only reason I finished this book was because I wanted to see how the end scene played out. I couldn't fully get behind Lil's refuge because while I understand some of the animals there, I don't really agree with taking an animal out of its natural habitat because it got old.

The majority of the story felt like the refuge and, after a while, I just didn't care to hear anymore. I liked Lil and Coop a lot more as children than adults, and even as children, Lil's "This place is SO much better than the city even though I've never been to the city" got on my nerves. As adults, I found Coop to be bossy, controlling, and selfish. I found Lil to be annoying in how she kept swearing that Coop broke her heart 11 years ago and she still can't get over it. Basically, this book has left me wondering if I'll ever read another romance novel again.

It seems as though the trend is to have this boorish men who only care about what they want, and their feelings. Coop flat out said that he didn't care what she wanted or thought, he wanted her and she would just have to come around.

The same thing happened with Farley and Tansy. This is excused away by saying that the women had feelings for the men, too, but they had to be convinced that it was okay. It bothered me that these women were basically stalked and I'm supposed to think that this is romantic.

The way Farley told Tansy that they were going to get married really bugged me. As did Coop's decision that the relationship was too hard back then, but now it's easier since he moved back, so now they'll be together.

I find relationships more romantic and appealing when they are equal partners. Coop cared nothing at all about Lil's feelings when they broke up or when he decided they were going to hook back up.

Tansy's fears regarding a relationship with Farley were just blown off as being silly. So, no, I didn't like this book at all. The ending was okay, but overall, I had to force myself to read it and I basically skimmed the last half of the book just to get it finished. View 2 comments. En el caso de Lillian, debo confesar que en algunos momentos no he coincidido con ella, aunque he logrado entenderla.

Apr 10, Janja rated it liked it. This could be easy five stars rating if it wasn't so damn long and quite boring with all the manual of wild life. One Sentence Summary: Can Dr Lillian Chance and ex-cop Cooper Sullivan outwit a crazed serial killer to save Lil's Wildlife Refuge and reignite the passionate flame of first love? Favourite Quote: Being an Aussie who lives half an hour from the beach and has ridden a horse only once in her lifetime; I loved this Nora Roberts novel!

There is just something about the American Wilderness - so different to the Aussie outback or rainforest - that I found so appealing. Combined with the wildlife refuge element and all the talk about big cats and I was sucked in.

I fell in love with the setting and premise of this novel before I fell in love with the characters although that didn't take long either! I wanted to book a plane ticket so I could see the South Dakota night sky for real.

Although I've read a couple of other reviews who haven't favoured the characters of this book, I have to tell you honestly that I really loved the main characters and their chemistry. Cooper's a typical bossy alpha male no complaints here and Lil is an intelligent, likeable female lead who gives just as good as she gets.

Surprisingly, even the jilted childhood sweethearts storyline worked for me and the suspense element really heightens the romantic tension. The suspense element of this novel wasn't nightmare-inducing however it certainly was enough to keep me flipping pages quickly.

I tend to think of Nora Roberts romantic suspense as crime novels for chickens like me. If it weren't for the absolute guarantee that both the hero and the heroine are going to live and have their happily ever after, I don't think my poor nerves could cope with the serial killers and other assorted nasties she writes about.

So if you're a seasoned suspense reader you may not be phased by this part of the plot; if you're like me, you may find yourself biting your nails on more than one occasion. Apart from wanting to read the talked-about wedding, I really can't think of anything I'd like to change about this book.

I loved it from start to finish - it was just what I needed. Fans of Angel's Falls and Nora Roberts's other romantic suspense novels will enjoy this read!

I could never really enjoy the couple truly and the main story and mystery didn't keep me in it either so more like two stars really. Jun 16, Heather Blair rated it really liked it. I'd a little less patience for Cooper this time around and his heavy handed ways.

But, it's still a kick-ass book, set in one of my favorite places in the world with an awesome heroine written by one of the coolest and most talented authors to ever put pen to page.

Un relato fresco, dinamico y romantico. Muy entretenida, de las que no puedes parar hasta acabarla. Feb 20, Claire - The Coffeeholic Bookworm rated it really liked it.

The story is set in a wildlife refuge in the Black Hills of South Dakota, hence the title. Soon they became close with each other and remain friends until their adolescent years. One day, when Cooper decided to go back to the ranch after something terrible happened while he was on duty as a cop.

His feelings towards Lil changed. But a psychopathic killer was on the loose and had been stalking Lil.

She and Cooper teamed up to discover the truth behind the mystery surrounding Black Hills. As expected, Nora Roberts writes with passion and her characters really pull you into the story.

Cooper and Lilian found themselves embroiled in a romance that needed to be nurtured.

The mystery part of the story is awesome, although the main characters were a little complicated, in my opinion. I would have given this a 5star rating, but something held me back — maybe because I see some Montana Sky anecdotes in the story, specifically on the animal protection part.

Nevertheless, Nora Roberts still is one of my favorite authors ever! Sep 02, Sheila rated it it was ok. Let me say up front that I had especially high standards for this book. I'm from the Black Hills: I was born in Deadwood, graduated high school in Rapid City, and went to grad school in Spearfish, the three towns she names in the book. I also have a decent amount of knowledge about the Lakota history and relationship with the Hills.

There were little mistakes a "beef farmer Let me say up front that I had especially high standards for this book. But the thing that really bothers me is this: She attempted to balance that with some exposition from other characters about why he was wrong, but see above about clunky exposition.

It really didn't work for me.

Hardback Editions

I'm super extra sensitive about this, and it made me nuts. Also, there were three Native American characters in the entire book, and not a one of them had both Lakota parents. Not one. The plot itself was okay but not great; the two romance storylines were all about the guys pursuing women who told them no, which I'm also not fond of. And did I mention? Whether contemporary romance, paranormal romance, or romantic suspense I've always counted on Roberts for a sweeping romantic read that satisfies as it entertains, and for years she's delivered.

Some books, of course, I've liked more than others. Some series or trilogies have hit closer to home than others. Some characters I've liked more than others. That's to be expected, I suppose, when you favor an author that produces such a wide range and so many opportunities to read.

And saying that, I can honestly admit I enjoyed Black Hills.

Nora Roberts

It wasn't my favorite effort, but I did enjoy it. The story of Lil and Cooper, two people who have loved each other their whole lives, who knew the love of best friends as children, the world-ending romance of young love, and the sometimes too realistic love of adults, was definitely comprehensive and at turns sweet, romantic, and sensual.

Their characters were palatable enough, though I always felt that Lil had a bit more life in her than Coop did, and I very much enjoyed her profession and her passion for it. The surrounding threat of a serial killer loose in the Black Hills of South Dakota was reasonably represented and blended well with the romantic narrative, as do most of Roberts' efforts in this sub-genre.

And yet Without a doubt, Nora Roberts has written some of the best romantic suspense out there. Montana Sky was a personal favorite of mine, as was River's End and Carolina Moon , and those are just off the top of my head.

In those books, and others that I have read of Roberts, the characters and the tension in the story combined with the romance to bring me into the book with almost lyrical effortlessness, until I cared beyond reason for the lives of the characters and their love and safety. I can't say that Black Hills evoked that same sort of passion in me, and that's a true shame. Like I said, I liked the characters - Roberts is excellent at filling her book with both lead characters and secondary and ancillary characters that could be neighbors, relatives, friends, they're so often recognizable.

So comfortable. But for some reason, Black Hills didn't connect me to them as other books of hers have done, so I never quite reached that reading nirvana of feeling like I'd stepped into the book and had it surround me, capture me, and force me into experiencing it on a visceral level. And I can't say I'm sure why it didn't happen here.

Maybe it was the writing style. The flow of the narrative struck me as odd through most of the book Several important scenes in Black Hills , scenes that would have given a reader a much more personal experience with these characters, were sort of glossed over or mentioned in a past tense Or the scene in New York that closed the door on Cooper's career on the police force. Or Lil's breakup with Jean-Paul. The way this story unfolded, with significant scenes happening outside of the reader's awareness and having them told instead of experienced, I think, hindered the intimacy between character and reader and kept that relationship at a far more superficial level than I'm used to in Nora Roberts 's books.

At least I think that's part of the reason. I also never quite got any sense that I was able to feel what Lil and Cooper were feeling for each other, and Cooper in particular was a far more stoic character than I prefer. The words for his love for Lil were their He seemed rather joyless, even proclaiming his love. Dedicated, yes. Unwavering, yes. Determined, yes. Happy about it?

Not really.

That didn't connect well with me. In that regard, the simple joy between Tansy and Farley in their relationship was more appealing to me as a reader. I liked the story. I'm still a fan of Roberts. And I'm not one of the many critics who think she's jumped the shark as an author and is now just regurgitating romances and scenes and dialogue with each "new" book.

There were parts of this story and characters in it that I felt worked very well. But I've seen her do better. And I was hoping that Black Hills was one of the better ones. It just Not quite. I thought this book was great. Predominately a romance novel, Lil and Cooper are introduced as children, and fall in love as young adults.

Driven away from each other, they lead separate lives until a serial killer brings them back together. The romance between them is lovely, and there are great moments of suspense and mystery, but I guess like any good Nora Roberts book, it's all about the love..

A few things made this a 4 and not 5 star book for me. It was just a little too drawn out. Most of th I thought this book was great. Most of the book was just waiting for them to get together, which you and they knew was going to happen. I know that's what romance books do But the tension kinda floated away when they acknowledged their feelings towards each other. Then nothing happens. It was very anticlimactic in that way, a lot of it was unnecessary. I did like the history of the relationship though, from hanging out together as children, to young adults, to finally seeing each other again 12 years after they separated.

We find out quite early in the book who the killer is, and I think it took away the majority of the suspense. For me I love a good suspense book with a surprise twist. Something that keeps you guessing. Who could it be? Is it this person?

Black Hills

Was it that person? There was none of this after the first half of the book, and after you find out who it is, you feel totally underwhelmed. However I felt this was saved by the ending suspense scenes, where it became quite enjoyable again.

I loved the wildlife reserve setting, loved the big cats. I thought this was an awesome aspect of the book. The secondary love story I found a bit bland, but I love that Nora loves the love!! It just took up a chunk of space that I felt could have been completely cut out, and saved me precious reading time.

However, even though these criticisms may seems quite large, as I was reading it I didn't think so at all. I really enjoyed this book overall. Jul 29, Books. Mania rated it it was ok.
