This Fierce Splendor: A Loveswept Classic Romance by Iris Johansen

In a classic historical romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen, a bookish beauty and her rogue guide go in search of a city lost to the sands of time—and find a burning passion.
 
Ever since she was a little girl, Elspeth MacGregor has dreamed of completing her father’s quest to find the legendary lost city of Kantalan. After poring over textbooks, atlases, and tribal legends, Elspath knows everything there is to know about the ancient metropolis—except how to reach it. Now she’s made the journey to Hell’s Bluff, Arizona, in search of the man who may be her last hope of reaching Kantalan, despite his dangerous reputation . . . or maybe because of it.
 
The last thing Dominic Delaney needs is to lead some stubborn scholar around on a wild goose chase. A wanted man, Dominic has never had time for fairy tales. But there’s something about Elspeth’s fiery determination that has him willing to suspend disbelief . . . and something about Dominic that has Elspath falling for the wrong man. Now, to reach the magnificent riches of Kantalan, the mismatched pair must first conquer the dark mysteries of desire.

I now want to go read all of the delaney's stories again. I enjoyed most of the book to many sex scenes for me but love the rest of it. Elspeth is on a stage comming to the town Hell's Bluff from Ireland. She has come to try and get Dominic Delaney to guide her to fable lost city Kantalan in south america. She knows he had a map telling how to get there, she wants to study and find greater knowledge of atlantis. Dominic is a gun fighter, gambler and has some stake in some claims around the gold rush of Hell's Bluff. He does not believe the city is really there. He told her father he was not interested in taking them. Elspeth follows into a cathouse to show him that she was determined. When that did not work she stood across the street till he came out and followed him till dark. Then she went into the saloon and told him she was not giving up. Dominic kidnapped her and took her to a cabin outside of town with the idea of taking her innocense. But she got away and was badly injured. Dominic was afraid she would never come too. His cousin Sliver was brought to take care of her. Eventually he took her back to his family home and married her and right after someone tried to kill him. So they went to see if the lost city was really their. Along the way they realized that they loved each other. Thier was gunfights, hanging and adventure along the way. I have read lots of her books and real read more of them. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.

I first read This Fierce Splendor when it was originally published in 1988. Sadly, it went out of print almost immediately. This is a fun, exciting adventure-romance set in 19th century Arizona. Scottish scholar Elspeth MacGregor is determined to find the lost city of Kantalan. Cynical rancher/gunslinger Dominic Delaney holds the key to its location. But he wants nothing to do with Elspeth or her mission; he has enough problems with all the bounty hunters on his trail. Naturally, they fall in love, find Kantalan and its fantastic treasure and live happily ever after -- but it's a bumpy road. Note: this is part of the Delaney series, but it is not necessary to have read any of the other novels.

I have read most of the Eve Duncan series by Iris Johansen so I thought I would try this book by her. At first I was disappointed because it started slow. Once I goy into the book I could not put it down. It is a very good book. I have liked every book I have read by Iris Johanson.

Classic Iris Johansen with a little, and interesting twist! The characters were interesting and I loved the fact that it had a little outlandish fantasy (lost city) in it. Good read for anyone looking for a quick historical romance read!
