As the holiday season approached, the residents of Jacobsville were whispering about Janie Brewster's hopeless crush on Leo Hart. Up till now, all her efforts to lasso the dynamic cattleman had crumbled quicker than those mouthwatering biscuits the Hart men coveted. However, this time the starry-eyed debutante had come up with the perfect self-improvement campaign to dazzl ...more

Janie has loved Leo since forever but her love is an unrequited one. He rejects her but he comes to her rescue when she starts working at shady bar due to her father's financial problems. But now it is Janie who doesn't want his love not when he stays with her out of pity and not love.

I ADORED Leo and Janie. Janie is strong but cute, sweet and very smitten with Leo. Leo is alpha but charming and when he falls for Janie he falls hard. Watching Leo beg and grovel was so amusing. Plus the love sce
This is a high rating for me with a DP book. There wasn't a lot of misunderstanding and willful ignoring of facts as in many of this author's books. The hero was being chased by the heroine and didn't appreciate it. She was too young for him, 14 years younger. Also he had been told some lies about her from her supposed best friend who wanted him for herself. So he lost his temper and said some nasty things about her where she accidentally overheard him.

So when she suddenly stopped chasing him a

Lionhearted is the 5th and final series of the Hart brothers of Jacobsville, Texas. And unfortunately, I’ve read it first. But I’m gonna read the first book later. Anyways, I still enjoyed reading this one. I absolutely loved it. Hands down to Miss Dianna Palmer for giving us another sweet, adventurous, touching, funny and heart-warming story.

Janie Brewster has loved him forever and has done everything that she can think of to interest him. She tried cooking, making biscuits (since the Hart brot

dari awal baca seri hart brothers, gw selalu suka ma tokoh Leo and yakin bahwa kisahnya pasti akan sangat menarik n ternyata gw bener...seru banget liat Leo yg ternyata bisa ditaklukkan ma Janie dimana awalnya Leo tuh "alergi" banget ma Janie terutama ma masakan Janie, karna Janie kan aslinya gak bisa masak..lebih kocak lagi karna Janie selalu menganalisis Leo n sodara2nya dengan teori psikologinya, palagi pas dia bilang Cag impoten!! wakakakkaaa...

"Woot, Woot!" The Power of Obsession"

In this last of the Hart brother series (my first book I've read by this author), the one unmarried brother, Leo Hart, now lives alone except for his aged housekeeper who comes in twice a week to give him a little grief. Women haven't been in his life for a while as he has a very busy lifestyle of ranch and business management. He's in his 30's now and casual dating is no longer of interest to him. He, however, does accept an invitation to dinner and ballet w

Good catch, Leo!

Janie's having a crush on Leo since forever! She's been following him around, seduced him and tried everything she could to be someone he wants but it didn't seems to work out. Leo thinks that she's too young to him and apparently, someone's not happy seeing Janie get close to him. She wants Leo for herself. Who is that? What will happen next?

In Diana Palmer's book Man of Means, the story of Rey, Miss Palmer describing Leo as the charming one. Easy going and funny. But why in th
I've just completed another Hart brother story and I loved it! LIONHEARTED is cute, funny, romantic but sometimes irritating. The hero Leon Hart, last brother to marry, was down right obstinate at times but so very crazy about the heroine, Janie Brewster.

Readers will meet this couple in-depth in the previous book A MAN OF MEANS (Sil Desire #1429, Apr 02.) The story is a straight forward romance and marries off the last of the Hart boys but also creates another mystery within the Long Tall Texan
The book was OK, a bit fast paced from realizing being in love to marriage for me, but the part where he was trying to save her was good even if he didn't do as well as he had hoped to. And it seemed to me he was much more mature than Janie, she was not that aware of being a woman versus being a teenager. Just didn't come together for me.
was just ok. Others in series much, much better. By the time I got to this one, I was soooo over the "virgin and the older man" schtick.
Leo and Janie. It was ok.

Me declaro fan de esta autora! :3

Diana Palmer

Este foi o primeiro romance que li da Diana Palmer e conseqüentemente da série homens do Texas.
Por isso tenho um carinho pela história e pelos personagens Léo e Janie.
E de alguma forma este livro me instigou a procurar os outros livros da série.
O que torna esse livro ainda mais interessante é que boa parte dos personagens que fazem parte da série, aparecem de uma forma ou de outra durante a narrativa.
Sebenernya aku mo kasih rating 3.5 tapi karena ga bisa pake acara setengah setengah yah sudah masuk ke 4 aja.. mengibgat kesusahan mendapatkan buku ini.

Awal awal buku ini cukup menjanjikan. Tapi menurutku klimaks buku ini udah terjadi di tengah buku ini, sehingga pada saat membaca bab bab akhir aku kehilangan semangat dan ceritanya cenderung flat menurutku. Cerita bab akhir seperti basa basi doang....

Not your typical Diana Palmer. I LOVED Leo and Janie. Yes he was that kind of hero BUT he didn't voice it (that much) and thank God, Diana didn;t share too much of his inner thoughts. One of my fav Diana Palmer books and Janie was a stronger heroine than most. Not once did Leo say "Little Seet Thang". How refreshing. Did I say I loved Leo and Janie?

This is why I look for Diana Palmer's novels.....among very few lukewarm books, she has many fantastic stories and "Lionhearted" is one of her lovely stories.....It has romance, a little suspense, and a nice dose of sensuality. I enjoyed reading this book very much as it had my favorite type of heroin...a sweet virgin and a manly cowboy

I have a whole stack of Diana Palmer books from the library that I could only get in Large Print. I think a lot of hers are either paperback or LP. Since a lot of theirs are her older novels I think the paperbacks have worn out so the library only has the large print left. I will read LP when no other type is available.
Overall : 3.5 stars
The Hart brothers : 5 stars
The brothers' love for biscuits is hilarious and yet cute. The way they stick up for one another is admirable and of course,the second funny thing is how they all prepare each others weddings in such a comical whirlwind.
disappointing book. stupid girl, stupid man, stupid story. not that good writing.
suka kali ma pasangan ini, dari semua seri DP cm mereka yg bener2 nyantel dikepalaku
kelakuan Leo yg sok2 g suka sm si Janie, beehh tapi bertekuk lutut juga sama Janie akhirnya
pengen baca lagi ^^, tapi g ada di Gramed Pekanbaru .__.' , cetak lagii doong!!!
Leopold and Janie..
gw paling suka cerita tentang mereka berdua..
banyak perdebatan dan sedikit amarah disana sini sebelum mereka akhirnya bisa bener2 saling jujur dengan perasaan masing2..
aku paling suka sifat Leo yang possesif dan impulsif.. ^^

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.

Dr smua hart bersaudr q plg sk leo..pdhal awl-ny bete bgt krn leo g ngeh sm perasaan akhr-ny sk bgtt pas leo sdr kalo jeny tuh sweet bgt d ending..^dreams come true..^
An enjoyable read about one of the reasons why love cannot be rushed. It is simple, getting straight to the point. Throw in some cowboy action, blushes and stubborn pride and you have a lovely story.
Good Book. about a young wamen that knows who she wants and a older man that does not know what he is missing till he is slapped in the face with loosing her.
Leo Hart's story.
Not as good as I expected. Leo sounded more interesting in his brother Rey's book.
Janie was a boring heroine.
Michelle Boone
Love this story. Leo is a biscuit loving jerk, but when he gets his head on straight he's exactly how you want your hero to be.

Jalan ceritanya khas Diana Palmer, walaupun nama tokoh dan settingnya berbeda-beda, namun kesannya sama saja...

kisah si Leo ini memang paling seru karena dia yang sok sok gak suka, tapi sebetulnya cinta setengah mati...ah Leo...
