When innocent, wealthy Nora Marlowe came to visit the Wild West, she was as wide-open to adventure as the vast Texas horizon. Its rugged individualism - and dashing cowboys - suited her romantic spirit. That is, until the wrong cowboy decided to take the elegant heiress down a notch!
Cal Barton didn’t like haughty Eastern misses. And he certainly didn’t appreciate one invading the ranch where he worked. But something about Nora was irresistible. The pull between them only grew stronger the longer she stayed - until a simple kiss became a full-fledged seduction that threatened to destroy everything she held dear... Don’t miss this classic tale from Diana Palmer!

I am in my late twenties, a commuter, a romantic, & am loving life.
I'm a sucker for a good love story... but this one just disappointed me. Missed opportunities and misunderstandings between lovers can be charming to a point - but when the ENTIRE BOOK is centered around one person's lies and another person's horrible snobbery... that's going a little far. Then at the end, very suddenly, an unlikely happy ending? I found the book to be too long and the characters to be unlikable.

This book had some interesting characters! I enjoyed listening to Nora and Cal's story! The audio was a little muffled in places and this narrators male voices were a little annoying at times. The author does a good job with the period and attitude of the time in history.
Books have replaced TV in my life.
Based on some earlier reviews - I put off listening thinking I would not like the book. Boy was I wrong.
I can't really claim to have a favorite - all characters are outside of my view of the world - so it was a new experience to follow this story with them.
Her voice sounded familiar so I went back to check - the other book was After the Night by Linda Howard. I thought she did an excellent job with both books. Her men sounded like men to me - not an easy task I am sure. I couldn't do it without sounding comical.
It made me cry in parts - especially when pride causes a person to be cruel to the one person you should treat the best.
This story did not take me where I expected - I enjoyed the journey.
I'm very picky. I like a good story and a narrator. This was done very well and I recommend it
Never read the print version
When she first tried her luck at the biscuit's and housekeeping, then when she got reunited with her husband.
When Cal was at her side when she lost the baby and had the fever
This book was a keeper, will listen to it again..
Interesting story line but all they did was bicker back and forth .I only finished it because it was paid for but it was really boring.
"You can't afford to be posh in the West!"
A posh socialite is disgraced by a cad, a cad I tell you, hah! She moves out to her cousin's finding that nobody will put up with her airs and graces, and that she is falling for the rugged foreman of the ranch, hurrah!
