The Wyoming men are back! In their quest for true love on the range, are these ranchers bold enough to open their hearts to the women under their protection?
Ren Colter may own an enormous ranch in Wyoming, but he scorns his wealth. He's closed himself off since his fiancée left him years ago, so he's shocked when he allows Meredith Grayling to stay with him. He tells himself it's only to protect the blonde beauty from a stalker, but Ren's alpha instincts soon kick in.
The last thing Merrie wants is a devastatingly handsome man like Ren lurking around her. He's too experienced, too appealing for her already shot nerves. What she needs is just to get away from it all: the man haunting her waking dreams and the one hunting her like an animal. But no woman escapes this Colter cowboy!

PLOT: Abused Meredith hides on hunky Ren Colter's secluded ranch.
Meredith was abused physically and mentally by her father. She inherits a vast fortune from her mother. and now hired killers are out to finish off Meredith. She ends up hiding out at Ren Colter's ranch. She has a stalker/hitman hot on her trails. Ren assumes the worst and makes a move on the shy beauty. He assumes she is a worldly. Meredith moves back to Texas to safety away from the hitman and Ren. But is injured when another man attempts to kill her. So the romance continues with her recovery.
The story is OK. Ren is a woman hater. Meredith is a bit too down trodden from abuse. Loopholes in the plot....Heroine can order all kinds of stuff on amazon yet cannot order her own coat and gloves? The reader is a man who is good in male voices but his horrible female impressions is both distracting and makes it hard to want finish the book. Why not get a "real" female to read this book? It could only improve it. I give it over all 3 STARS.....
A reader with memory issues
Absolutely, Diana Palmer has over thirty books in her Long Tall Texans/Wyoming Men series this one book can't negate her overall storytelling abilities.
He was the reason I was able to get through the entire book. I don't have a favorite.
Nice job Mr. McLaren
Yes, the narrator
This novel is an example of "Epic Fail". As a D.P. fan, I have certain expectations for each novel. Her editors failed her and what we wind up with is a book that had potential not a D.P novel. How many times are we going to be forced to regurgitate the same lines? We are educated readers you can tell us once. Characters who are transplanted in the beginning can not later have their parents baptised in a local church just to maintain the "People of Faith" theme.
Overall, this book had poor primary plot development, no viable secondary plot at all, weak and underdeveloped characters, poor research, a rushed transition AND a very predictable conclusion. My advice is to wait for the next book in the series, you will not have missed anything important.
Interesting story line with unexpected mob influence - I wasn't expecting that in a western set romance in modern times. The main heroin takes your through a journey of her growth learning about life after being raised by an abusive father who kept her in seclusion. Great hero character in Ren...loved that rich cowboy.
In fairness to Mr McLaren - his male voice were excellent. He pulled off deep voiced main character - southern cowboys, and Italian mobster accents. However, the publishers really need to get female performers for the women. It was actually kind of hard to listen to a man trying to sound like a frail woman for the main character. Had I not already been drawn in by the actual story line, I may have stopped listening. It was worth it in the end, but this really needs to be addressed by the publisher.
I tried to listen to this all in one sitting - but it took 3 due to my schedule. I did find myself wanting to get back to it during the breaks.
Overall a good listen , good story, and good performance with the notes as above about the female voices.
It wasn't that great. The delivery was irritating sometimes and it seemed to repeat over and over the same thibgs in regards to the story. I fast forwarded a lot towards the end...just wanted it to be finished.
It seemed like half the book was different characters repeating the same info. The narrator's voice for the main female was painful to listen to. It made me ask if she was supposed to have step through out the story. Diana's cookie cutter stories don't usually annoy me but this one really did.
"WYOMING BOOK 6"
MARRY AS SHE HAS TO FACE A WHOLE WORLD SHE DOES NOT KNOW A LOT ABOUT
HE BRINGS THE CHARACTERS COME TO LIFE
WHEN MERRY TOLD RENDS OLD GIRLFRIEND WHAT SHE THOUGH OF HER
I LIKE BOTH OF THE STORY'S. BUT YOU HAVE TO READ BOOK 5 AND THEN 6 TO REMEMBER THE STORY .
"Basic modern DP"
Got a bit monotone at times and voices blended. He still not great a female voices so they tend to sound the same
This is part two of the story started in defender. It helps if you have read defender as many of the same characters appear along with some old favs and recent couples. This is your basic modern DP with virginal female lead being a person of faith and a damaged much older male lead. About half the book happens in Wyoming the rest back in Texas. The story plods along enough not to be boring. There are some lol moments as standard in any DP book. Cousin Mikey and associates provide some OMG and lol moments. Many of the characters involved in defender are back including the avengers and we learn a bit about them. Not a lot in the way of updates about other couples but a few recent ones pop up. The croc incident involving rouke and Carson gets a mention. There are the usual misunderstanding and edited info that cause problems which are coming to be standard in all DP books. So is the fact that story arcs span different series. Overall its a decent read and worth a listen. Not one to listen to in a single sitting but ok
