Montana Man is an early romance novel by American author, Barbara Delinsky. Lily Danziger is on the run from her ex-husband’s family in Hartford with her five-week old baby. She’s in a late-model sporty Audi, headed for Quebec, determined to make a new start in life, but it’s not a car that’s built for negotiating a northern Maine snowstorm. She takes a chance on picking up a stranded hitchhiker, a taciturn cowboy named Quist, who’s less than impressed when this obviously spoilt city girl runs out of petrol. After spending the night bundled up in the car, waiting out the blizzard, Quist heads off to find better shelter. Quite a trek later, they’re in a cabin, where they can at least be dry and warm, desirable as it looks like they may be there for some days. Aware of the need to stay civil in close quarters, they try to rein in their irritation. Nonetheless, sparks fly, not all of them verbal. Perhaps a little slow moving, this is quite a sensual and moving romance.

I like this story because it was set in the winter and the people were fairly believeable Good to read beside the fire on a cold evening.

Holed up in a cabin during a snowstorm, Lily and Quist get to know more about each other and are, very soon, getting cosy.Hero: Marlboro Man, tall, rugged jaw, rancher.Heroine: Beautiful girl with baby and broken wrist gratefully accepting his help.

Lily and her newborn baby are stranded in a snowstorm with cowboy Quist. Heart-wrenching with a happy ending. I enjoyed this book very much.

At last, a book has come along that justifies my guilty habit of swiping free romance novels whenever they are available (but only if they fit certain criteria -- this one fit my criteria of "romances about cowboys.") I have to admit that this is one of the few romances I've read where I enjoyed almost every minute of it. Although it fell into the usual romance tropes, including my pet peeve of oh-so-masculine men and oh-so-feminine women, both characters in this book feel real rather than just romanticized "types." I liked that they both had romantic histories prior to the book (the woman was divorced, and the man had been around the block a few times). The other compelling factor in this book is that 90% of it takes place within one context: a blizzard that leaves two strangers stranded. The dialogue between them sounds real, and there are no pesky real-world distractions from the love story. There are also none of the annoying blown-out-of-proportion miscommunication and misunderstandings that most romances include (which makes me REALLY doubt the characters' ability to have a grown-up relationship with one another).The one thing that did irk me a bit was the obligatory offspring in the epilogue. There must be some rule someplace that says no romance is complete without a baby or two on the last page. Hey, I like babies, but I do wish there was more diversity in how we envision the happily ever after. (I'd actually give this 3.5 stars if it were an option. It wasn't *that* spectacular).

Lily was caught in a snow storm while on her way to Quebec to escape a dangerous brother-in-law. She picked up a hitchhicker (Quist) and then ran off the road and out of gas, and couldn't get her car back on the road. They ended up staying in a cabin for several days until the storm was over. Lilly had a 5 week old baby and cowboy Quist's reaction was interesting.
