Books by Diana Palmer

Lawman

I’ve always been a sucker for angst, and boy, Lawman doesn’t come up short. The characters go through emotional hell, but it serves to connect the reader and the protagonists. Garon Grier is a "taciturn" FBI agent who just moved to a ranch in a small town in Texas. He’s investigating the ab ...

Before Sunrise

Diana Palmer is one of those authors you either like, or you wonder what kind of Crack the people reading it took. I generally love Palmer's writing and simply enjoy her books without overthinking them. Yes, there are some very repetitive elements in her books, including the older man, young virgi ...

The Hart Brothers: Simon and Callaghan

(This two-in-one volume features two series romance titles originally released in 1999 by Silhouette.) When we noticed that some of Diana Palmer's backlist was being reissued this month, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity for Linda to introduce her favorite "guilty pleasure" au ...

Lawless

Diana Palmer's distinct style is displayed in good form in Lawless. If you enjoy - guilty or not - older, male, law enforcement heroes and younger, virginal, women in trouble, this may be the book for you. And if you regularly enjoy Diana Palmer, you won't be able to pass on this one, and why would ...

Desperado

I read Ms. Palmer's hardcover debut with a mixture of anticipation and trepidation. Back in the day (early eighties) when I was a teen, Palmer was one of my autobuys. As happens, my tastes changed and she dropped off my radar. When I saw her latest on the review list I thought it'd be interesting to ...

The Texas Ranger

A vulnerable, innocent woman; a man who behaves in a manner that would make a doting mother cringe in shame. Ah, Diana Palmer has written another book. When Josette Langley was fifteen, she was nearly raped at a party. The boy she accused said she led him on and then lied about t ...

Paper Rose

Diana Palmer is so very popular that I asked to review this, her latest book. The plot looked interesting - it was about gambling on a contemporary Indian reservation. I sat down to read and the more I read, the less I enjoyed it. Paper Rose left me angry, confused, upset, and baffled. I'm afraid I ...

Once In Paris

Ewww!!! That was my reaction time and again while I was reading Once In Paris, a contemporary romance by Diana Palmer. Let me make myself clear, I do not mind it when there is an age discrepancy between the hero and heroine in a romance - LaVyrle Spencer did a wonderful job handling a romance betwee ...

The Savage Heart

Although I would be hard-pressed to say this is one of the best romance novels ever written, I will say that I enjoyed it enough to lose sleep over it. I started reading it at ten o’clock at night and didn’t quit until I finished it in the wee hours of the morning. The best thing about this b ...
