over the top dominating, aggressive, and protective of his unwanted wife He was bitter and cruel but this is exactly what I expect from a DP hero At least he had his reasons He lost his first wife and child so tragically I could forgive him for being so damn brooding Grace was a true survivor Emotional and sexual abuse is disgusting and heartbreaking She grew up with her mean grandmother No one cared about her or loved her the way she deserved to be loved But she never resented others Such a good and warm heroine I admired Grace for risking her life to have her baby and for fighting for love against all odds and despite all obstacles Very emotional book This book does not even deserve to be a DP book It was gross and it was vile I can t even review all the horrible things that happen to the heroine and all the crap the hero does to the heroine Oh and the far far fetch plot and characterizations Wow learning to speak a foreign language in two second flat and many other silly things I will not go back here It was not worth my time How could this book be so bad I wanted it to be awesome Just so disappointing. 2.5 stars and I m not rounding up on principle The extra 1 2 star was for the heroine who I did like and who really told the H what a POS he was Unfortunately she did forgive him, but this is a romance.This is nothan I deserve I was given some recs for some older Diana Palmer books that I may enjoy I wanted to give her another try since she s so popular, often with friends I tend to agree with and I d only read 2 books by her in the past, one of which I saw potential in Unfortunatel 2.5 stars and I m not rounding up on principle The extra 1 2 star was for the heroine who I did like and who really told the H what a POS he was Unfortunately she did forgive him, but this is a romance.This is nothan I deserve I was given some recs for some older Diana Palmer books that I may enjoy I wanted to give her another try since she s so popular, often with friends I tend to agree with and I d only read 2 books by her in the past, one of which I saw potential in Unfortunately those recs weren t readily available on Scribd and I didn t want to pay for one of her books at the moment So, I picked up this mess all on my own I will track down one of those older pre 2K recs, since people were nice enough to make a list before I give up on DP completely and permanently consign her to the not for me bin.Where do I start I ve been kicking around the idea of a hero tstl tag for some time This book sealed the deal Dude was dumber than a box of rocks on so many levels I can buy the otherwise intelligent man who s an idiot when it comes to a woman, but he was just an idiot all around This guy is an FBI agent No wonder the federal government is a mess Also the investigation part and banter between the cops was like the low budget pilot for a crime show that didn t quite make the cut Lots of the hero throwing out things DP had probably heard on CSI and then failing to interpret those pearls of wisdom he d literally JUST spouted when the real thing was right in front of his face It was actually comical Almost like a satire, but I think it was supposed to be serious It was like an SNL skit Barney Fife does CSI Just for kicks, I m going to highlight his most idiotic moments with spoilers and a trigger warning for severe childhood sex abuse view spoiler The hero , Garon, was an FBI agent who decided to slow down a bit and take a job in DP s absurdly exciting TX town of 2000 residents There s farcrime there than in my relatively small city of 14K His main focus is bank robberies, but a much smarter local cop approached him about what he suspected was a serial murder of a little girl and he got involved in that case As it turns out, Garon s new next door neighbor was 25 year old Grace She was a life long resident of the town and much loved, although she didn t get out much She was afraid of men and never dated and tended to underplay her looks with baggy clothes and no makeup, etc This was because she was the very first victim of the serial killer 12 years before She had survived barely but had been kept blindfolded by him for 3 days and God only knows what she actually went through She was rescued after the sicko had stabbed her in the stomach multiple times and tried to strangle her, but he got away and she never saw his face Small town politics had buried the case, but some in town knew parts of the true story and everyone was very protective of her.Garon became involved with her after her hateful old drunk of a grandmother had a heart attack and Grace had to go to his house to ask him to call an ambulance her phone was down and car wouldn t start Anyway, after that, he kind of inserts himself into her life She doesn t ask him to But he keeps turning up to help her out and insult her taste in clothing, choice of lifestyle, etc.He doesn t think she s pretty or intelligent or up to his standards at all, but he wants her So, he seduces her However, it took Mr Lawman almost half the book to realize why she didn t want him to touch her and shied away He was so insulted that the frumpy little spinster would dare not be attracted to the wonder that was him He finally had a Eureka moment and realized she must have had some trauma in her past which explained her shyness with men and playing down her looks DUH I thought an FBI agent who d worked with profilers and on serial killer cases would have at least a tiny clue.After two days, he decides she s getting too close and probably getting ideas And even though he knows he was her first lover, he callously tosses her aside by avoiding her and not even giving her an explanation She s not an idiot, she gets it after he doesn t call for a week or two and she doesn t try to call him But, it s a small town, and everyone knows Grace and were happy to see her with a man and maybe moving on with her life so there was talk Well, Garon didn t like that talk Then he sees Grace at suspicious places like the bank, the town diner, and events that the entire town turned out for He publicly humiliates her several times, loudly accusing her of stalking him WTF How do you avoid running into a person in a town that small One thing I did love was that the town turned against him and refused him services for being such a giant ass However, Grace was embarrassed and traumatized enough to leave town to stay with a cousin.In the meantime, Grace tells the local policeman working the child murder case about her childhood experience since she d heard mention of a clue that was far too similar to her case She d tried to tell Garon, but he just accused her of stalking The local cop manages to dig up the suppressed file on her case and they realize they have a living victim.Garon is ashamed as well he should be and realizes that the news of what actually happened to her will likely get out and put her in danger, so he talks her into returning to town She gives him a great chewing out too Turns out Grace is pregnant with Garon s child and they enter into a MOC.Meanwhile Garon has found out who the serial killer is Problem is, any reader with half a brain knew who the serial killer was very early on It was SOOOO obvious And the reader doesn t know anything that he didn t know, so it s not a case of the reader getting a different POV and therefore having inside knowledge The local cop was even suspicious of this guy, but mighty FBI Agent, Garon, poo poo d his suspicions Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.Anyway, of course there s a HEA where he saves her from the serial killer and realizes how much he loves her Blah blah I guess if Grace wants to put up with his stupid ass, I m happy for her hide spoiler This

our heroine and has only negative things to say about her He thinks she s ugly and uneducated At no time did he redeem himself in my opinion He was always comparing her to other women and finding her with less qualities than the others He never had anything positive to say to her only offensive and sarcastic things.I think it was weird his first marriage being so perfect and his wife wonderful and in the end he start pointing out defects in the dead wife and seeing that nothing was as good as he imagined.She will always be a second best.I feel sorry for her The first time I read the book I really hope our heroine kicks him to the curb and falls in love with Rick.Cash had disowned his family over his father s remarriage just days after his beloved mother s death from cancer.He d lost his one true love to cancer It had eaten the heart out of him Now, at thirty six, he was resigned to being alone.The granddaughter wasn t much to look at She wore her blond hair in a long pigtail, and went around mostly in loose jeans and a sweatshirt She was shy around Garon In fact, she seemed to be afraid of him, which was curious Maybe his reputation had gotten around.She had green eyes, very pale, and an oval face She was plain, except for her pretty mouth and exquisite complexion.Miss Carver was the sort of woman he d never found interesting.He loved roses, and during his brief marriage, he d grown several varieties OW Jaqui Jones Easy to remember, and her figure wasthan enough to make her memorable in addition to her mom.It didn t take second sight to know that she was available and interested So was he It had been a long, dry spell She s only been in town two months and she s already got a reputation Put her hand down Ben Smith s pants right in his own office His little mother had been a saint No, he couldn t have pictured her being available to any man except his father until his father had cheated on her and hastened her death.The girl was doing all she could for her grandmother, who seemed about as loving as a python.Garon glanced at her She wouldn t win a beauty contest, but she was a fast dresser, he thought with admiration Nothing And that s all I want to know I did her a favor tonight, but I am not in the mood to take on dependents Especially spinsters who look like juvenile bag ladies He didn t like having her as a responsibility longer than he had to It s only breakfast I m not proposing, he added sarcastically No ambition to go to college or learn a profession Garon asked You re nasty, I m nasty, she returned If you ever develop a pleasant personality, I ll even smile at you I m amazed you re not a number in a home for the unbalanced, he said under his breath You go to a job looking like that he exclaimed.He shook his head The women in my office wear pantsuits and makeup You ll never be alone in Jacobsville We re your family, Grace All of us Don t tell me she s afraid of the dark, he laughed There are four brothers, he replied Cort and Parker are the other two Cort runs our West Texas ranch with our father Parker s in law enforcement He didn t want anycontact with her than necessary.He didn t want to know intimate things about her, either He only felt sorry for her.It made him angry that this frumpy little woman looked at him as if he were a rapist.It fascinated her that some of the town s leading lights thought so much of old Mrs Collier, and she mentioned it to Barbara Don t be silly, she chuckled It s you they re fond of, Grace, she added OW I just wanted a look at you, the woman chided.She laughed coldly I can t believe I was worried about the competition, she added carelessly, and walked out without another word.He wasn t interested in a relationship with his neighbor.Garon glared at him I m not in the market for a frumpy girlfriend Never mind, he said when she didn t reply It isn t as if I m interested in you that way, he added almost as an afterthought, and with a cold, faint smile Good night That niece of Mrs Tabor s brought food to the house, she said She told me that she d worried I was some sort of competition until she saw me She was very insulting Before she realized his intention, he brushed his hard mouth over her lips in a shiver of contact that made her heart jump.He bent again This time, he brushed her lips apart with slow, sensuous motions and caught her upper lip between both of his in a sensuous, nibbling motion.He was no longer teasing His mouth was demanding, masterful OW Garon felt oddly out of place with these people Especially with Jaqui, who rubbed against him at every opportunity, almost panting with desire He didn t like public displays of affection, and it showed in his face OW As long as you aren t running after your little neighbor, she chided God, that frumpy woman And you had her staying in your house, I hear She s a loser, like most people around here, she said carelessly.She reached up, dragged his head down and kissed him with her whole mouth.She d heard at work about Garon s attendance at Jaqui Jones s party.Before she got the words out, he had her up in his arms, and he was kissing her as if there wouldn t be a tomorrow.He had a sudden, urgent arousal that he couldn t control Open your mouth, Grace, he bit off against the taut line of her lips.He drew away from her He looked as shocked as she did.She was good company, for a shy and damaged spinster.I became a lawman He made it sound like a holy cause In some ways, I guess it is We speak for victims who can no longer speak for themselves You re good for my ego, Grace, he murmured But I don t think I m good for you I was in an an accident, when I was twelve, she said A bad accident I got cut up, especially my stomach So I can t have children She d suffered enough already at the hands of one man She didn t need Garon to put nails in her coffin But Barbara knew she couldn t stop this train wreck of a relationship from happening Relationships don t stagnate, Grace, he said quietly, searching her wide, gray eyes We either go forward, or we stop seeing each other I m too old to settle for a platonic relationship It had been too long since he d had a woman He was dying for her He couldn t stop Grace, you were a virgin, weren t you he asked after a minute She stopped breathing She hesitated Well, yes, Grace, you do understand that I m not in the market for a wife he asked quietly.She d been such a fool He didn t want to marry her He just needed a woman, and here she was, waiting eagerly for him.Without missing a beat, he lifted her in his arms, and kissed her as if he hadn t seen her in a year Moaning, helpless, she yielded at once He turned and carried her down the hall to the bedroom.Garon was still uncomfortable with their scrutiny, and getting cold feet Colder by the minute,He loved Grace in bed, but he wasn t going to marry her because of it.She was seeing him as a prospective husband, but he didn t want her for keeps.He was bad tempered and impatient since he d stopped seeing Grace, because he knew it was going to hurt her when she realized that he was ending their brief relationship.She hadn t gotten the message, he realized.Grace was a sweet woman He liked her But she wasn t the sort of woman who normally appealed to him He liked aggressive, confident, powerful women women like Jaqui A quiet, clinging woman who couldn t relate to him intellectually wasn t going to fit into his world You don t take hints, do you, Grace he asked coldly I tried to do it the easy way, but you re persistent So let s get it straight I don t want to see you again I don t want to hear from you Don t call, and don t come here again You re a small town spinster, Grace, with few talents and minimum education, he said firmly, hating the words even as he forced them out We don t have anything in common except physical attraction, and it doesn t last You need some steady cowboy who wants a domesticated little woman to keep house for him I m tired of having people gossip about us That s over I don t want you, Grace Go home She went to the bank the following Friday, and there he was, standing in the next line He looked at her and glared, as if he thought she d followed him there.He turned and saw her standing behind him and his eyes flashed with fury He threw down the reel and strode to her I told you I wasn t interested, Grace, he said through his teeth Following me around isn t going to get you anything Didn t you get it I don t want you OW BUT THE FOLLOWING Friday, there was a performance by the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra at the Jacobsville High School Auditorium Garon invited Jaqui to go with him She dressed in a scanty little black number that emphasized her lush figure, and she clung to him like glue Again he asked curtly Why the hell can t you stop following me around he demanded What does it take to convince you that I m not interested Stalking is against the law, Grace, in case you didn t know, he added icily I could have you prosecuted She grew paler and thinner OW Grace felt her heart sink Before she could speak, there he was, just coming in the front door, with Jaqui hanging languidly on his arm Good God, not again he raged Do you have radar Every damned place I go, you turn up How did you know I was coming here Do you have someone spying on me, to make sure you don t waste an opportunity to ruin my day No, you don t understand he snapped, moving forward You re thick as a plank, Grace I don t want you in my life How many times do I have to say it before you believe it It s no loss, the food here sucks anyway, Jaqui tossed over her shoulder I m sure the food isn t everything that sucks around here, Barbara told the other woman with a smug, demeaning smile.the older woman added with a cold gleam in her eyes He ll wish he d never moved here He scowled She turned up everywhere I went, after I told her flatly that I didn t want to take her out again he d seduced her and then pushed her out of his life, like a man discarding a used towel DNA He stared at Cash while the truth drilled a hole in his heart DNA His teeth ground together The son of a bitch had raped Grace He d knocked her back, savaged her verbally and emotionally He d frightened her so badly in the caf that she d backed away from him, shaking like a leaf She doesn t hide her assets, he admitted She likes having men around her She gave him a cold smile Lucky girl, not to have my history She was a strong, independent, intelligent woman We both knew on the first date that we d be together forever When she was five months pregnant, she started feeling tired all the time The oncologist diagnosed it as non Hodgkin s Lymphoma That was ten years ago I decided that I d never take that risk again But you don t want to marry me, she started again No, I don t, he said honestly But it s only for eight months, he added After the baby comes, we ll make decisions She d never expected him to want her permanently Nobody ever had.It had been a long time, but he still remembered the joy of his first wedding He was fond of Grace, and he wanted the child, but he couldn t separate himself from the past Grace, if you don t eat properly, you could hurt the baby, he said in desperation She felt part of herself die every time he said things like that But all of it, everything, was for the baby She had no illusions about his feelings for her OW Jaqui had phoned her, unbeknownst to Garon, to remind her that as soon as the baby came, Grace was only going to be a footnote in Garon s life Jaqui insinuated that Garon was sneaking around to see her.She didn t tell Garon about the phone calls She knew he wouldn t care, unless Jaqui s harassment was endangering the baby, of course.He d told her they d only be married until the baby came He d probably forgotten saying that, but Grace hadn t She was just marking time, feeling like an insignificant incubator in his house You ve lived in an open grave since you lost your wife and child, she said simply Don t you think it s time you lived in the present You have another wife, and a child on the way It isn t fair to them to make them second best after ghosts Obviously Jaqui is the sort of woman you admire, Barbara said, her eyes growing cold Once the baby s born, you can get a quiet divorce and saddle up with your ideal woman With any luck, Grace will realize that Rick is farher style than you are Excuse me I have to get ready to open You can speak Arabic the agent exclaimed Yes What do you want to know she asked Come right in, the agent invited, smiling Well, it looks like you had a good time Her eyebrows lifted Yes, you can sometimes take me out in public I can talk and walk, she replied Anyway, she added, fastening her seat belt, I guess getting to know me better doesn t really concern you Once the baby s born, I m going home You re working part time at menial labor jobs I thought you wouldn t be able to handle asophisticated level, he pointed out curtly Garon, he said gently, Grace has a bad heart valve It s gone critical If they don t operate very soon, she won t make it Then I took her to work with me and left her in the waiting room When I came back, she was happily chatting away in Arabic to a Jordanian murder witness, translating for him She speaks several languages, In a way, he d resented the fact that he had to marry Grace because of the child He was incredibly awful even after realized his sadistic behavior and felt guilt, while she was the perfect saint all the time OTT drama full with angst made me cry my heart out.
