A BRAVO'S HONOR (3) by Christine Rimmer: Though she's had a crush on rancher Luke Bravo since her teens, veterinarian Mercy Cabrera has kept her distance. The attraction goes both ways, but there's bad blood between their families -- a feud that goes back decades. Eventually, Luke and Mercy start seeing each other, but she wants to keep it a secret, and Luke refuses. Is their love strong enough to withstand the disapproval of their families? A classic plot and a dramatic conflict are the strong points here, but the romance seems superficial -- based on physical attraction rather than emotions.
