Review – Heartless – Diana Palmer

 

Title: Heartless

Author: Diana Palmer

Publisher: HQN

Main Characters: Gracie & Jason

As a teenager, Gracie worshipped her stepbrother, Jason, a strong, silent young cowboy who left home early to seek his fortune. Though Gracie hadn't seen him in years, when her mother passed away, Jason ensured that Gracie would be cared for. Now the wealthy owner of Comanche Wells ranch, Jason has finally come back home, and discovered that the little girl he knew is all grown up.

When a moment of unbridled passion results in a kiss, Jason realizes that he's falling for Gracie. But Gracie harbors a shameful secret that makes her deeply afraid of love. Stung by her rejection, Jason leaves, ready to put the past—and the one woman he can't have—behind him once more.

Gracie thinks she's lost Jason forever. But when danger threatens her and the ranch, she can only hope that her long, tall Texan will come blazing home to save her, despite her secrets—and take control of Comanche Wells, and her heart, once and for all.

 Review

Ms Palmer gives us yet another book from her Comanche Wells series of books, this time it’s Gracie and Jason who are facing cupids arrow. Gracie is the stepsister that Jason has always taken care of and protect at every turn. Over time they both have grown and taken up different interest and for all intense and purposes live in two different homes, Jason lives on the ranch and rarely comes in to town unless he NEEDS to, while Gracie  who is the organiser and perfect host of the family has no problem staying in the more populous area of town.

With one kiss their perfect harmony was tossed into chaos and this set about a chain of events that soon has Gracie on the outs with Jason and out of a home as well. Jason has not come out of the affray scratch free – but he has to shoulder most of the blame as Gracie has her secrets as well and she will make every effort to keep them a secret even if it means letting go of Jason, a Jason she is fast falling in love with.

The latest production from Diana Palmer and yet another book that  I got as soon as it was released. it doesn’t matter that  I knew the ending as soon as I began or that the cast are quite formulaic – this is Diana Palmer and  it’s a must read.

There are no grey areas to this book and every thing was tastefully done with the stepsister/brother explanation. The support cast are past books protags and this book does have a bit of pace to it to make it an all nighter for me..

Loved it.

Sounds good :)
I like what I hear and I want to know more. What can't she tell, can they be happy. I am sure they will but how they get there is the question
