This is by far the meanest Diana Palmer hero, and that s saying something I wanted to get out my extra large titanium shovel to brain this jive turkey with I don t think I ve ever given a Diana Palmer book a C and hope never to again, other than this book, which is a C My dream ending would be for Maggie to walk into the sunset with a better man, and certainly not Clint.I love you Diana Palmer, so I ll forgive you for this one that you wrote earlier on in your career. At least the heroine wasnt a blonde I guess. One thing sorely missing from these earlier works of Palmer are consummation scenes and baby filled epilogues Angst, asshole heroes and sweet virgin heroines are there which always makes her books a 4star for me.
Necesitaba un respiro y las historias de Diana Palmer siempre son una buena opci n breves y sin sobresaltos Ideales para cuando necesito darme un descanso a m y a mi cabeza.Sin embargo, hay veces que no entiendo c mo me pueden gustar tanto Especialmente con la afici n que tiene de darles a sus protagonistas femeninas cero amor propio Sigo esperando un libro suyo en que el protagonista tenga que pedir perd n como es debido, uno en el que ella despu s de lo mal que la trata no se le tire al cuello sin m s Uno en el que l tambi n sude un poco por su final feliz en lugar de dicarse a pisotear a la mujer que dice amar Y no importa lo mucho que se tema al compromiso, eso no da derecho a tratar a la otra persona como un felpudo.A n as esta autora seguir siendo mi peque o placer culpable. Well, heck This guy was a jerk, supreme, but damn he is one alpa male The jerk What you would expect in the genre during the 80s and from an earlier Diana Palmer virginal heroine alpha jerk hero who despises women but has secretly loved the younger heroine since she was even younger yet has NO problems sleeping with beautiful women while he works out his commitment fear of the L word issues The other L word Think 80s not 2000s.It was kinda funny A fast, fun, sensual no sex scenes read complete with jealousy, vixens somewhat vying for the hero s attention, the mandatory best friend and older female who have watched the couple from the beginning and just known there was something ther. Yes Diana Palmer books can be a little repetitive at times but I really love her stuff Call me crazy or it could be the fact that I haven t read anything by her in months but I loved this story Its nice to take a break from all the vampire romance and murder mystery novels and read something like this I really don t understand why people are being so harsh about this book It was written in 1979 Thank about it people That s 32 years ago If you went back in time just ten or fifteen years the world would be a whole different place and a lotconstricting in ways.No sex scene Big deal If that s all you wanted then you probably should be reading erotica instead And the definition of ROMANCE NOVELS varies person to person You don t normally choose who you love and sometimes the person you fall in love with is a jerk So naturally some women would decide that they are going to be the one to change him That he is going to eventually fall for her and everything will be okay That is what happens in this novel Its a good book and definitely worth having if your a Diana Palmer collector. Boring and I didn t like hero or heroine. &READ E-PUB ✙ Sweet Enemy ↿ Under His Spell Sparring PartnersWholesome Maggie Kirk Had Always Been Wary Of Commanding Cowboy Clint Raygen So If Her Best Friend S Forbidding Older Brother Rubbed Her The Wrong Way, How Come She D Chosen His Ranch To Recover From A Broken Heart She Knew The Dangers That Her Foe Posed Yet Every Time She Crossed Paths With The Hard Edged Cattle Rancher, Her Pulse Would Race Out Of Control Maggie Secretly Dreamed Of Awakening To Womanhood In Clint S Powerful Embrace But Did These Sweet Enemies Have A Shot At Becoming Lifelong Lovers Another emotional roller coaster ride Maggie s loved her best friend s brother since she was a child who stuck to him like glue Clint adored the child, but when the child was becoming a woman, he became uncomfortable with her adoration Scaring her away was easy, and becoming enemies proved the best way to stay at arms length At Clint s sister s waggling, Clint agrees to let Maggie stay at the ranch while she heal a broken heart Sparking Maggie to life comes easy to Clint but dealing with his own feelings proves another matter There are some deeply emotional moments where Clint is almost hateable, but as all great heroes do, he redeems himself wonderfully. I liked it Ms Palmer s books can be a little repetitive at times but I can t get enough of them I m a sucker for older hero younger heroine trope and that both of them dealing with a love hate internal struggle I love it when they fight, maybe it s because it s a passionate emotion of some kind and I know buried behind that anger or frustration or whatever is the deep love they have for each other But the ending was kind of rushed I wanted an epilogue, but I know that Ms Palmer s rarely or I say never write an epilogue.
