That Texas man was long and lean...and just ripe for loving on a hot summer night....

But convincing him of that fact would be a difficult task indeed. Because men from Jacobsville, Texas, are a different breed, and tough to convince in matters of the heart. They are men of iron, men forged to long-lasting steel under the hot Texas sun.

Three Novellas Telling The Stories of Former Secondary Characters

Each of the three novellas in this anthology tell the stories of secondary characters from other Diana Palmer novels.

TOM WALKER is the story of Tom and Elysia Nash. Elysia is a widow with a young daughter who comes back into Tom's life. Tom knew her in New York and the two had a one night stand. Now they meet again. This was a story that was really good but would have been better at a longer length. Tom's issues were too deep to re

"All it needs is a child running around, doesn't it, Eve?" Eve. Kitty froze in his arms. She felt as if every single hope died in her, right there.

"He'd called her Eve. They were never going to get past that, even if he did care enough to raise the roof of the emergency room

Tom Walker, Drew Morris, and Jobe Dodd. These men are not very nice. Overbearing and just plain oh jerks majority of the time.

Longo Verão No Texas:
Tom & Elysia
Diana Palmer

É incrível como um tumor cerebral, pode transformar um bom pastor, num homem abominável e assim prejudicar psicologicamente e sexualmente duas crianças por toda a vida. Ou um pai violento também pode prejudicar, outras crianças da mesma forma.

Obs.: é o segundo livro que lei da DP que há um pai “louco” com tumor cerebral.

Apesar disso essas mesmas crianças podem crescer e com muita dificuldade e desencontros podem superar esses

Jacobsville Texas had the same elements of small towns elsewhere with a slight difference, strong traditional values upheld to a greater degree and men with hearts difficult to corral. Spending their days working hard, the closed-off hearts of three men in particular were about to be invaded. Tom Walker an investment counselor with a Sioux ancestry encountered a previous one-night lover years later, discovering that one night altered his life in ways he never expected. Dr. Drew Morris an overwor ...more

Tom Walker: 3 stars
I liked the book well enough, especially the new plot about Crissie. Diana Palmer usually doesn't have children in her stories. I also liked how the characters just come out and admit their love for each other, without stretching it out too long and DP introducing useless thoughts and insecurites about the characters for each other. It usually doesn't happen, so this story gets points for that.

Drew Morris: 3 stars
The story was cute, although Dr Morris was a jerk most of the ti

This is three different stories:

Tom Walker & Elysia Nash: 3 Stars

This was a very sweet short story, I think ut could have been a bit longer as everything seemed a bit rushed, but it was still an enjoyable read.

Dr Drew Morris & Kitty Carson: 3 Stars

Again this was a very cute little story about finding love again. Kitty was DP's typical virgin heroine and Drew was a man who didn't want to fall in love again after his beloved wife had died six years earlier.

Jobe Dodd and Sandy: 3.5 Stars

This book had three short stories.

i found them all very good. I liked the first two the best.

They were all about the trademark virgin and all quite lovely, especially since they were set sometime ago.

it wasn't something that was too hard to put down, but if you like DP formular you will love these.

In 2005-2007 I read so many of Diana Palmer's books. My ex's mom had a lot and that got me hooked. She is an excellent author and I just enjoyed them. Especially the rancher, texas, farmer themes plots and stuff.
I only read Drew's story because I just finished Coltrain's Proposal. Great read, although I felt Drew was more like a father figure to h at first, they became more as time passed by.

h was hurmous,esp the way she made joke with H; I also admired her out-spoken.

What we have is a story about three men who are confirmed bachelors in a small town in Texas who meet three women who change their minds. There's plenty of action going on and each storyline has it's own unique situation.
I liked the romance of Dr Drew Morris and Kitty Carson the best of the three romances. It's typical D.Palmer, the H's so cruel at times it takes your breath away, nothing different there for a DP book. It just seemed that everything was a tad rushed.

There were 3 different stories. They were very short with little character development. For the most part, romance novels are very predictable but with the limited amount of time spent on each character it took some of the enjoyment out of it.

Me entretuvo ya que la busqué como una lectura ligera para apaciguarme cuando ando en otra más compleja. Leí la tercera historia, me faltan las dos primeras.

Borrowed this from a co-worker and enjoyed it. Have to say first 2 of the 3 stories were better than third one. Found third to be confusing and not as interesting as first two were.
