I hope these two dumb clucks never reproduce as they don’t have sense to come in out of the rain.
The older, hairy H is the rare DP protective nice guy that is head over heels with the heroine until it becomes clear she’s attracted to him after a bout of fooling around then his raging attraction and release of testosterone engage the DP cruel hero affect. He’s SO MEAN!
She searched his black eyes. Her own were sad. “We were friends once.”
He smiled. It was icy cold. “We were,” he agreed. The smile ...more

The only benefit was to learn that Black Coffee is good for Asthma attacks.
I liked the slow build-up between H and h, how h helped H overcome his depression because of his marriage, how they cared about each other, and how they got closer to each other.
Of course I was waiting H say sth to hurt h at some point considering I've read many DP's novels. Yep, he toally did it, almost ruined my good impression of him so far. However, I didn't expect the second time he hurt her by his rude words because I thought he finally realized life was sh ...more
May December romance between Niki, and her father's best friend Blair.
While she falls for him at 17, he's always been attracted to her but thinks of her as a kid. He then gets married and later divorced, and flames fly when they meet again.
As usual there are cruel exes, evil girlfriends, mean heroes, pushing away, angst, repent- and finally a HEA and a baby.
Some heavy breeding undertones- but with DP flavor.
This followed the well used pattern but I found everyone's mood swing ...more
Blair, our Hero, is a bit annoying, to be honest. He gone hot and cold in a matter of minutes and to me that's just childish. He's a mature man, for crying out loud! Why can't he act like his age? But overall, this book is pretty much Palmer's classic plot and I j ...more

PS: I looked it up because it is annoying and antiquated. Only 3 states require blood tests for a marriage license: DC, Mississippi, and Montana.

I quit this book at page 23. At this point I could tell several things already.
1. Ms. Palmer does not write above a 6th-grade level.
a. Short. Choppy. Sentences. That tell you what is happening. 'She is angry. She can't run away in time."
b. "He drew back a fist the size of a ham and inserted it into the boy's diaphragm..." Since this is Super Bowl Sunday, I'm blowing the whistle: Juvenile imagery and improper use of a Thesaurus.
Ye-gods woman, ...more
So let's get the things that annoyed me out of the way now. First up, Niki.... sigh. Niki is like, she's naive but she's worse than naive. She's the phase before naive, she's practically puritanical. If you had locked a woman away in a dunge ...more
FINAL DECISION: Sweet romance between a man who believes that he is too old for the heroine reminds me of the best of the classic Palmer books. The hero is not verbally abusive towards the heroine and Niki and Blair have some sweet and funny moments together.
THE STORY: Niki Ashton has been in love with Blair Coleman for years. Blair has treated Niki as a child as Blair is the best friend of Niki's father and sixteen years older than Niki. Through Blair's failed marriage ...more
I was really excited to read this book because I liked Palmer’s “Wedding in White”, which I read by accident back in high school. This book follows the same formula: younger, virginal woman has known older, experienced man since she was on the cusp of womanhood and is in love with him despite his hangup on the age difference, but he doesn’t come around until she has a near death experience that lands her in the hospital. And even tho ...more
