Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Loved It!"

    I almost didn't buy this book because of the previous review. I listened to it completely in one session. Couldn't put it down! I thought it was a great story and didn't have any slow parts that make you want to fast forward. I would encourage anyone that likes romantic fiction to read this book.

    Story
    "Heartwaring love story, I could not put it down!!!"

    This one is very sweet and heartwarming. Gracie has known Jason since she was a young girl and loved him from a distance. Jason has loved Gracie also from a distance and now that they are adults they finally find the gift of love, once they overcome being step siblings (no blood relation). I was seriously wondering how the author was going to pull this story off without making it seem taboo. She established that very quickly and I could relax and enjoy the story. Jason is very sweet and helps Gracie overcome some dreadful things from her childhood. I loved the little twists in this story. Like most of the Diana Palmer books I have purchased in the past, the romance is Hot, Hot, and Hot and really flows with the story. In general I really do like the narrator (Phil G) and he does I great job with the majority of the voices. I just prefer him doing only male voices, but honestly his voice is not detract from the story at all. After about 15 to 20 minutes did not focus on him reading as a female and just thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love Diana Palmer books. I have listened to this one twice, maybe more.

    "GOOD STORY, OK COWBOY,TERRIBLE NARRATION FOR WOMEN"
    What three words best describe Phil Gigante’s voice?

    Great sexy cowboy narration.
    Terrible narration of women - annoying and didnt suit the roles at all. Ruined the mood.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Better Narration.

    "Romance, Adventure, and Mystery"


    I always enjoy Diana Palmer's books and this was no exception. The love story between Gracie and Jason is a roller-coaster of adventure, betrayal, and mystery that occasionally suspends reality; but isn't that why we call it fiction?


    Phil Gigante is a wonderful narrator.

    "Sorry Ms. Palmer"

    Heartless....hmmm...Brainless might be better. I like a sweet love story as much as the next person and I love a happy ending. The key here is "Story", not a long misunderstanding and silly kidnappings. I guess I like a story that's interesting, touching, exciting and gets from point A to point B quickly enough to keep me interested. This story had none of those traits.

    "Absolutely Loved This Story"

    I read this book a while ago and fell in love with the story. So when I seen it on audio I just had to buy it and I'm glad that I did was just as good listening to it as reading it. I would Highly Recommend this audiobook to anyone. I can't wait to listen to more in this series.

    Story
    "Not into (that) naive female mc"

    I read diana palmers "before sunrise" and liked it, so i tried this one. But NO. I really didnt like this book. The female mc is just too naive and i spent most of my time listening hoping that she would snap out of it. The entire storyline evolves around the fact that she thinks that the only way all men get anything from a sexual relationship is to hurt women - and its not the fact that she thinks that - because of course you can be traumatized - but she just isnt making sense - I got so irritated that i forgot to listen to the ending.

    "Great Western Adventure!"
    Any additional comments?

    Phil Gigante was the narrator and he did an exceptional job telling the story. I couldn't stop listening. I didn't want the story to end.

    "Ugh, the voice is grating."

    The narration was so terrible that I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes. His interpretation of what the female main character should sound like was absolutely gastly.

    "don't waste a credit"

    The story seemed to really drag on, definitely not one of Diana Palmer's best efforts. Phil Gigante has a smooth, soothing voice and really pulled off the different male characters beautifully. However, he tried to make his voice somewhat higher pitched for the female voices and it just didn't flow. Everytime he spoke in a woman's voice my jaw clenched with irritation. All in all, it's 8 hours of my life that I will never get back.
