Wyoming Rugged by Diana Palmer - Book Blog Tour Stop and Review

Wyoming Rugged

About Wyoming Rugged

Mass Market Paperback: 320 pages
Publisher: HQN Books (November 24, 2015)

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Diana Palmer is back in Wyoming with a tale of love born in Big Sky Country…

Billionaire oilman Blair Coleman has always taken care of his business. After having been used and cast aside by a woman he thought he loved, his personal life is far from his first priority. He knows only one has ever truly cared for him—but the irresistible blonde beauty is the daughter of his best friend.

Niki Ashton has seen her father’s friend wounded and she’s seen him fight. Blair is the strongest—and most stubborn—man she’s ever known. That very heart and passion makes him the man of her dreams, but whenever they’ve been in danger of getting close, Blair has always pushed her away.

It takes a possible tragedy to strip away all of Blair’s misgivings. Now it’s all or nothing: marriage, baby, family, forever. But will the choice be too much for Niki…or too late?

My Thoughts:

I have not had the pleasure of reading any of Diana Palmer's previous novels, which surprised me as she has nearly two hundred titles to her credit. So I was anxious to see what makes this author so appealing to so many.  I soon found out it is Palmer's descriptive style of writing that pulls her fans into the story and makes them feel a part of the thrilling, and sensual activities of the characters.

"Wyoming Rugged" can be called a "December/May" romance, as the main character, Niki Ashton is 16 years younger than the man she loves. This could be a rather tricky scenario for an author to deal with, but Palmer does so with a gentle but entertaining touch!  I enjoyed the backdrop of Wyoming/Montana for this story as well.  Fans of contemporary romance as well as western-flavored romance will be glad to add this title to their list of books to read!

"Wyoming Rugged" is the fifth book in Diana Palmer's "Wyoming Men" series, but first time readers can easily join into the series with this story.

That's quite an age gap, but I think it can work in a story if it is handled well. I'm glad you enjoy this one!

Thanks for being a part of the tour!

Yes, Heather, I was kinda leary at first about the age gap, but the main character is more mature than most women that age! It worked!
