This was ok. Nothing unusual, special, or different. But it satisfies the way romances should.

There’s some good lust. I have no complaints.

Dallas is a cattle rancher (the cowboy). His relative sold rights for drilling on the family land to an oil company. Dallas hates having the oil company on his land. When he first meets Gillian he dislikes her because she works for the oil company. He is rude and insulting. Someone is sabotaging the oil project and Gillian suspects Dallas may be behind it. In

Dallas McCade is beyond furious that Diamondback Ranch has Copper River Oil Company on his family ranch drilling for oil. And there is nothing he can do about it, because unfortunately he doesn't own the mineral rights. His sister-in-law does. But what is even worse then that is they sent a woman to oversee the operation. Dallas loses his temper and his heart every time he is around Gillian. He tries to stay clear of her but once he is close to her, he wants her. And it makes him even more furio ...more

This is the second book in the Diamondback series.. Anne Marie Norvark has surpassed herself with this one.. I thought Cameron was hot from book 1 but he has nothing on Dallas.. This book was more than awesome... boy oh boy one stubborn male against a stubborn female...the chemistry between Dallas and Gillian was HOT!!! they are both equally scared and so badly hurt in the past.... Will they decide to put that behind them.. will they admit there is something between them... will there be a HEA.. ...more

This was my first Novark book, and I guarantee it won't be my last. I loved getting to know the McCade family. All with their own since of loyalty and honor, but the banter with the brothers was a crack up. I could picture them each time throwing verbal jabs at each other. I liked that Gillian was a woman with a purpose, not just some pretty girl, and that she was cautious. Some of the scenes seemed to be a bit wordy and a little over descriptive for my tastes, but the story line was great and I ...more

Recommends it for: those wanting a Series about love on a ranch.
The saga of the McCade brothers continue, as it is Dallas turn for love. Dallas certainly won’t be the easiest man to love, as from the first book, he came across as rather callous. Dallas certainly doesn’t make a good first impression on Gillian Bankston. Gillian is an independent career woman that works in a male dominant profession, and certainly not someone that Dallas can push around. Somehow Gillian brought the best out in Dallas, and they really seem to complement each other.

This is the second book in, The Diamondback Ranch series. It can be read as a standalone, but it's so much better if you read, the doctor wears a Stetson, first.

Dallas is the hero in the story. He is a gruff man, and at time comes off as a butt. Gillian breaks through all of his defenses. He does not want to like her, but the chemistry keeps pulling the two together. By the end of the book I liked Dallas. I really enjoyed all the characters in the story line, and look forward to reading the nex
Nov 16, 2013 Sue rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
Started to read... but something about the writing style didn't work for me. I think it's the contradiction with the female lead and not in a good way. She's in a male dominated industry and role, yet personally she appears very weak. Not one of my favorite vehicles because the sympathy hasn't been built up after reading 50+ pages. So nothing for me to admire her for.... rating based on the fact I doubt I'll come back to it.

Prior book was better, but similiar though the weakness didn't appear ti

Strike it rich!

Oh my what a great love story! What happens when you fall for the enemy? Both Dallas and Gillian have sworn off the opposite sex and Dallas wants Cooper Ridge Oil off his land, now the head of the operation is this woman...she's the enemy or is she? Lots of twists and turns as they learn that they just might find out that through each other they can do more than just exist.
Truly enjoyable series, have to love a cowboy!!

I added this book to my high school shelf because I read the "sweeter" version which was an edited version -- sex removed. I still like this series and will continue reading to the end! I want to know what happens with each of the siblings! I enjoyed Dallas' story probably more than Cameron's!

I enjoyed Dallas' s story. He had his problems but finally worked them out.

This series is about family. I love those kind of stories. All the ups and downs, the good and bad.

I can't wait to read the next story. It's Austin's story...should be good!

I liked the first book in this series, "The Doctor Wears a Stetson," but I really, really liked this book. I thought the story-telling in "The Cowboy's Surrender" seemed to have matured. I liked the characters and the overall story.

This story surrounds a stubborn Texas cowboy and a female representative from the oil company he despises. The story is predictable but we still love the time to escape while we read.

Excellent "brain candy" read. I call romance novels that I don't really need to think about "brain candy". Really great them all.

Good story line can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series. I didn't rate this a 5 star because I feel there was to much graphic sexuality
