A Texas Bachelor...

He moved one hand to his shirt and, holding her eyes, ripped the snaps open down the front, baring the bronze, muscular chest under its thick mat of dark, curling hair. "Touch me," he said curtly.
Her lips parted. She couldn't believe this was happening, here in the gallery, in broad
"It's all right," he said quietly. He caught her hands and put them inside his shirt, pressing
them gently into the thickness of body hair.
"Evan!" she moaned.
His breath caught as he pushed her hands closer. "O
Love the cowboys, but enough with them getting the virgins.

This was recommended to me as a read that involved unrequited love on the hero's part and then the heroine gave up on him, so he actually missed her.
Boy did that hit the nail on the head.
So I loved how freaking Alpha Evan was. Yes, Alpha with a capital A for sure. I also loved how pliable the heroine was for him. Sometimes these things just work. Yes, she was a door mat and yes, he was an a-hole most of the time, but you know what? I loved it!
I think these two were meant for each other, even t...more
Since this is a book from the early 1990's I have to give it some slack.

I liked that Anna tried to be strong and gave up Evan after chasing him for two years. She realized that she was making a fool of herself.

Evan was too confusing. He wanted her but he had so many reasons not to have her. She's 19 and he's 34. He had a bad experience with his first love and she was a virgin too. He was so traumatized by that experience.

I hated the fact that he was so cruel to Anna. She gave him up and he just...more
Diana Palmer is my guilty secret, I love all her books. However, there are some details that make me cringe, like when the guy calls the girl "little one", jeez. In this case, Evan is in love with a 19 y/o woman, while he is 15 years older. She pursues him very aggresively until she realizes he'll do anything to be rid of her. Then when she turns form him, is when he can't resist her. I thought he was too cruel sometimes, but he got his comeuppance, so it was sweet revenge, until the HEA. Very n...more

Evan me dá nos nervos, não que Anna também não tenha exagerado...

Ninguém gosta de ser perseguido impiedosamente...

Evan poderia ser mais condensedente...

Homens são objetivos...

Não conseguem ler entre as linhas...

E ainda por cima traumatizado...

Em compensação quando ela começa a ignorá-lo...

Ela acaba percebendo o verdadeiro sentimento, que tinha pela pequena Anna...


i loved this book. It was hot and sexy and sweet and kind with lots of romance. Evan was a great hero, just a bit mean in the middle but sweet and caring when he woke up to himself.

Anna was sweet and a realistic 19 year old - not sure herself if it was love or a crush. She wasn't afraid of what she wanted even though she was a virgin.

I love how these books let us know how previous Long Tall Texans are going with their wives and children.
aneh,, masa Evan takut berhubungan dengan Anna gara2 tnggi badannya (Evan) 195cm ditambah Anna yg umurnya, , ,muda bgt (baru 19 tahun),,

khas Diana Palmer, awal2 qta baca pasti langsung benci sm heronya..gimana gak, heronya memperlakukan si heroine dengan sangat "menyebalkan",,

alurnya ceritanya hampir sama kaya Lionhearted,, tp setidaknya Leo Hart gak "sekurangajar" Evan Tremayne.

still enjoyable read

A happy ending romance story. Evan Tremayne's hangups were a little over exagerated. Anna Cochran loved him and chased him for many years. She stopped suddenly, and that's what it took to bring Evan to his senses. I've over simplified but I enjoy these quick little romance tales.

One of my favorite, like seriously. I always love this kind of story where the Hero ended up having a hard time, regretting about how his treatment towards heroine. Argh, Diana Palmer always know which button to push! :)))
I liked this one a lot. But do find it hard to believe in any of her books that the ladies would be so easy to get back after the way the men treat them. If I were the women I'd make it a little harder on them
This is one of my favorites novels EVER. I've read this at least 3 times this year. Half of it it's kind of my story. The good thing? This end is worth it. My end? Well...

This was one of the first novels I ever read and immediately fell in love with Evan and Diana's style of writing. ❤
Not one of my favorites. Really had for me to finish reading. Did not care for the story line at all.
Love Evan's story :)
