The man who shattered her trust is back to protect her… New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer delivers a breathtaking story of second-chance love.

When Paul Fiore disappeared from Isabel Grayling’s life, he told himself it was for all the right reasons. She was young and innocent, and he was her millionaire father’s lowly employee. Three years on, Paul is the FBI agent assigned to Isabel’s case. Too late, he realizes what life in her Texas mansion was really like back then—and how much damage he did when he left.

Once love-struck and sheltered, Isabel has become an assistant district attorney committed to serving the law, no matter how risky it gets. But right now, the man she can’t forgive is the one thing standing between her and a deadly stalker. She knows Paul won’t hesitate to protect her life with his own. But if she can’t trust herself to resist him, how can she trust him not to break her heart all over again?

 My Thoughts:

When you think about Texas romance, usually you draw up a mental picture of hot cowboys, wild horses and lust on the frontier - right?  Well, that's true some of the time, but with Diana Palmer's latest book - the hot cowboy hero is an FBI agent, the heroine/damsel in distress is an assistant D.A., and as far as the wild horses go, this time they are thoroughbreds on a sophisticated ranch. There is still plenty of lust in this fast paced romance, but there is also an intriguing mystery threaded throughout the story that will keep the reader enthralled to the very end.

Diana Palmer is a great storyteller and that is evident in her novels. Her characters are interesting, her plots are action-packed and thrilling, and the romance is just sizzling enough to keep the fire lit!

I highly recommend this novel, as do I the rest of Diana Palmer's books. Just right for these hot afternoons we got coming up!

As a NOLA native, I'm also a major fan of Southern fiction! This Diana Palmer Texas romance seems like an interesting twist on the stereotypical cowboy character. I just finished a wonderful romance, made me cry - give a read and I think you might love it too. I found it here on the author's website http://bascomville.myshopify.com and it's his 4th published novel. Three cheers for us Southern gals who can appreciate a great story of love!
