Shelby Kane wasn't about to let her friend's bossy brother run off his family's ranch again! And Kingston Brannt kept a tight rein on his volcanic desires, but made it abundantly clear that he resented Shelby's sweetly distracting presence--and the fiery passion she stirred in him. Although the ruggedly handsome, impossibly stubborn cowboy fought their explosive attraction ...more

OH God I love her so much

*deep breath*

Okay, okay I think I'm fine now. NO WAIT-

*more deep breaths*

Yeah, I think I'm okay now.

Anyways, as I was saying. GOD-DAMMIT I LOVE DIANA PALMER SO MUCH!!!! (Must. Resist. From. Adding. Another. Gif. Must. Resist.)

So last night I picked up at least five different books, which I all abandoned because GOD-DAMMIT I WANTED A HEROINE WHO ISN'T IMMATURE OR BITCHY OR DECEPTIVE, A HEROINE WHO LOVES THE HERO LIKE HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE LO
Reading the other reviews is really making me wonder if there was a chapter missing from my ebook. Because at the end there's... nothing. No explanation for what he did. Tons of loose ends. The heroine didn't seem to care either, so maybe it's just me.

I loved Shelby and King. She is in love with King but he doesn't know it. When she announces her engagement to his younger brother, our brooding jealous hero is determined to make Shelby his.

Love Diana Palmer for her innocent sweet heroines and dark brooding heroes and this book didn't disappoint!

I like this book!

Shelby's a model and friends with Danny. But Danny's older brother, Kingston, seems to despise Shelby so much. He thinks that Shelby's a spoiled rotten model who loved to spent money like her actress mother, but he didn't knew that she's not like that. When Danny come and propose just for an act, Shelby couldn't say no. That's when Kingston went red..

Very very typical of Diana Palmer and the storyline's very familiar with one of her books but I can't remember which one.

Diana Palmer knows how to draw out the intense emotions! Though this was originally published in 1980, this story works very well today. King is a man with a quick temper and Shelby has always gotten under his skin, sparks inevitably fly when they get near each other. Shelby's been in love with King for years, but she doesn't know that his out bursts are meant to push her away, she thinks King honestly despises her and she shrinks away. You'll need some tissues handy, there are a few scenes wher ...more

When I started this book I thought "why is doesn't this girl grab a pair and tell this jerk off." Then I realized that it was published in 1979. I guess that was before women really started to stand up for themselves (which is probably why God made me an adult today and not then). So I slacked off her a little and started to like her despite the fact she was a wimp.

The guy was a total jack-butt to the heroine. He kept calling her little girl which really got on my nerves. But he was sexy when he
**1.5 stars at best**

I could tell that this was a very old book. This book was originally published in 1979. The guy smoked everywhere, which is unusual nowadays. And man, I didn't understand how this was a romance. The guy was a total dick for the whole book then asked the woman to marry him at the end. I have no idea how she figured she was in love with him, but I guess she was used to being ignored so she didn't know any better. It was on the short side, so I didn't have to suffer long. It ju

A sweet read.

Yeah, King is kind of a jerk and has total misconceptions about Shelby based on her famous mother and his past bad experience. He treats her badly and feels bad afterwards so you know he is fighting some heavy attraction but will he ever surrender?

Now Shelby is afraid of his bad temper and the horrible insults that come out his mouth so she tries to avoid him at all costs. She can't help but admire his hunky body and sexy walk but not enough to want to tangle with him.

As they are f

Another staple Diana Palmer with a smitten but fighting cowboy and a ‘city girl’ whom he believes to be too delicate to survive ranch life etc. So we go on with the blow-hot blow-cold routine leaving the h and us winded. Throw in the decorative and covetous ow (wish she had a bigger role), match making brother and mama, and uncaring actress mother and you get the complete picture.
What works is that the H was not quite as big an as*hole as he would like us to believe, and she was truly a sweethea
