Man, I got a bad batch of Diana Palmer - or this wasn't set in Jacobsville and the magic just wasn't there. *has DP hangover*

This story is set on a dude ranch in Arizona. The plain Jane heroine is due to inherit the ranch when she turns 25 in the next year. Until then her uncle makes the decisions, while she is part of the day-to-day operations. The hero is Shelby's (the heroine from Justin) brother. The siblings lost everything in Jacobsville after their father died. The sister entered a MoC wi

Our heroine is ugly and unattractive and also suffered a trauma that profoundly affected her.
Her sister-in-law who is a former model and very beautiful, she is a bitch that even being married went flirting with a cowboy and he fell in love with her.
Our young innocent heroine had a crush on this cowboy and he ended up sexually assaulting her. She was not raped by him because he was interrupted. Since he can not have her sister-in-law he tried to have sex with our heroine. This episode left her
Otro vaquero terminado. La verdad que éste ha sido el más aburrido porque como los anteriores era antiguo pero no tan retrógrado con lo que no hemos podido ni Yola ni yo reírnos apenas, ahora que ella es una prota pichote como dirían las haggards. Por dios que tonta y pesada.

Que manera de perder el tiempo, no pueden sentarse y conversar honestamente. Supongo que Tyler la malogro con sus precipitadas e hirientes palabras y bueno despues de eso ninguna mujer que se respete olvidará fácilmente lo que se ha dicho de ella rápidamente...

I like Tyler. The first three Long Tall Texans run on the same theme. Herione afraid of sex and male misunderstands. I thought this was the best of the three.

May have slight spoilers.

In author Diana Palmer’s third Long, Tall Texans novel, Tyler we get Nell Regan and Tyler Jacobs story.

Tyler has recently lost everything, his wealth, farm and more because of his father’s debts. Now working a new job the boss sends him to be the new foreman of the Double R dude ranch in Arizona. He has just gotten back after taking a day off to go back to Jacobsville and attends his sister Shelly’s wedding to Justin Ballenger.

Tyler has had a hard time of it lately and

I really liked this one.. I loved the change of location from Jacobsville to Arizona. It made me think happily of Linda Lael Miller who writes about Arizona a lot. I liked Tyler when he was in both Calhoun & Justin's books. It was nice to learn more about him. He turned out to be backward, caring, misguided, & stubborn. He goes out to Arizona to work on a dude ranch. If you have even read on western romance about a legit cowboy rancher you know that he was seriously desperate for a job. ...more

This one ended up being a did not finish for me. It was just too ridiculous or maybe I had had enough of women who get to their 20s and know NOTHING about even kissing a man. Really? I know it was written in the 80s but, come on. Did a woman like Nell really exist in the 80s? It was something I just couldn't get past so I didn't really feel the relationship between Tyler and Nell. I'm this close to calling it quits with this series. If they are all like this, it could get a little tiring.

Not a standout Diana Palmer novel. The "conflict" basically consisted of the heroine's insecurities compounded by her overhearing some thoughtless comments made by the hero. (view spoiler) An okay, if forgettable, read.

Recommended for Diana Palmer fans.

I stumbled upon this book by accident. Don't have any idea where I got it, but I was looking for something to read and my Kindle Fire was at 1%. I'm glad I found it! It's a very sweet story of love and a young, insecure girl finding herself and becoming a confident woman. Ms. Palmer never disappoints!

Como dije antes, tantos malentendidos cansan, pero fue una bella historia, muy sencilla.

I am a sucker for a LTT book and loved Tyler in both Calhoun and Justin's story. I am glad to read Tyler's story but this one was a huge disappointment. None of Palmer's love stories are fully believable but this one was straight up terrible. The heroine Nell has absolutely no self esteem and the author didn't give her even an inkling of common sense. It was frustrating to see the heroine put herself down again and again... and I felt her reactions and assumptions too extreme.

I do not recommend

Adoro o Tyler, mas ele é um piadista, morria de rir quando dizia que era um homem antiquado, um homem a moda antiga. Poupe-me, se formos compará-lo com o Justin, ele é um tarado maníaco sexual. Kkkk...

Tudo bem! Posso estar exagerando, mas continuo rindo. Antiquada sou eu, ele é homem, kkkk... Desculpe me, não consegui resistir!

Digamos então, que o Ty é um homem que tem controle de si mesmo. Mas isso não importa, ele é mesmo um gostosão, com

I like Tyler and being a gentleman and not taking advantage of Nell's innocence made him even more a character I can hold in esteem. Nell on the other hand is insecure and lacking in self-confidence.

There were dialogues that seemed to be repeated a few times and it is a bit irritating to read.

I hope book #4 will have a glimpse of how this couple will make their dude ranch successful.

This is one of my least favorite Diana Palmer books. Instead of just telling the heroine how he feels, he keeps telling her to figure it out for herself. I understand she has self-esteem issues, but if you love someone you want them to feel secure in that love - not having to second guess themself & you constantly.

A 24 yo is dealing with something that happened to her 9 years ago... when she was 15!!! A 20 something guest of the house came to her bed. She started screaming. Does no one other than myself see this as assault (at the minimum)?!?! disappointed in this. Seeing more and more of 'NO' in these books but it is explained away.

I wish I had read the first two books in the series first, I might have liked this one better. I did not like the way the main characters spoke to each other; some of it was very mean spirited.

Abandoned on 50/123. Nell being childishly insecure gave Tyler's attentions to her a pervy feel. Not badly written, but the story turned me off.
