Evan (Long, tall Texans, #8; Silhouette Romance #819) (Long, Tall Texans #8)
Ever since she could remember, Anna Cochran had been passionately, shamelessly in love with tall, strapping Evan Tremayne. But the stubborn man refused to take innocent Anna seriously. To Evan, Anna would always be in need of protection from rough-and-tumble cowboys like him!
Yet he couldn't deny she awoke a fierce, restless yearning in his hardened heart...more
Be the first to ask a question about Evan (Long, tall Texans, #8; Silhouette Romance #819)
This is the book that got me hooked on Diana Palmer's book. The first time I read this book was in my early teen years.
And I remember going
Anna was such a strong woman, who was worn down by the hero, Evan. I will explain: at the beginning she was obviously In love with Evan and had been for many years and was not put off by his ridicule and rejection. She kept hoping he would eventually see her and beginning to care about her.
However, when he throws back his ex ...more
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 ...more

It’s been a while since I read a DP I enjoyed so much and can swoon about too.
The 19 yrs. old h is the sweetest DP h ever. She’s no downtrodden Mary Sue. I just love the way she chases after the H, who though attracted to her blonde buxom beauty tries to fob her off as he feels she’s too young.
It wasn’t that he minded the dinner so much.... What bothered Evan Tremayne was the way Anna sat and watched him.
“I have to go.”
She stood up. “Not yet,” she plea ...more

"I was only teasing." "That kind of teasing can be dangerous. Practice on Randall. He's safer than I am."
Si tengo que remarcar alguna cosa sería la actitud de la madre de ella. Me parece muy bien que los padres respeten las decisiones de sus hijos, pero la actitud de ella ante la decisión de Anna aún sabiéndola desacertada me pareció inadecuada. Por mucho que un padre respete la decisión de su hijo también es su obligación intentarle hacerle ver que esta cometiendo un error, aunque recordando siempre ...more
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
Fact #2: I'm not really into category romance. They are not enough developed.
Fact #3: I don't like caveman alphas...
Fact #4: … or hairy male chests.
Fact #5: I don't mind age differences but I don't care about them either.
Fact #6: The naïve, sweeter then honey brainless virginal heroines are making me angry.
And what I really don't like are the books that have all of above piled on less than 300 pages. Unfortunately, I hav ...more
Once again Diana Palmer creates some magic.
Sweet, innocent, & young Anna has been hopelessly in love with Evan for years. She has tried some outrageous things to get his attention from manning a desk in her mom's office to snakes in her desk but he doesn't bite.
Evan is an older experienced man who considers her just too young and innocent for him. He does find her desirable but a bad experience in love years ago has made him afraid to take a chance on her. His desire for her is ...more
Homens do Texas 08
Irmãos Tremayne 03
Sinceramente não consegui ficar muito brava com Evan. Sei que ele foi até cruel com Anna, mas ele é tão traumatizado que compreendo seus medos. Apesar de aparentar ter ódio por Anna, na realidade ele quer protegê-la, a ama tanto que tem medo de machucá-la com sua força e falta de controle.
O que Evan não compreende é a força que Anna tem, não só fisicamente, mas principalmente de caráter e espírito. É tão apaixonada ...more
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
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
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.
Note 1: Tremayne Brothers
Note 2: Long, Tall, Texans
Note 3: Jacobsville Resident
Evan spends his time avoiding Ana's flirtations; but when push comes to shove is he ready to send her packing? Especially when he finds out she is ready to marry another?
