Publisher's Summary

Celebrity actress Diamond Swain needs a peaceful place to hide out from the news-hungry paparazzi - a place like Whispering Pines. And yet from the moment she arrives at the remote Texas ranch, Diamond finds herself at odds with its rugged owner, Jake Madaris - a man who challenges her to care about more than making it to the top.

Jake doesn't have time to babysit some Hollywood star. Then he comes face-to-face with beautiful, compassionate Diamond and is drawn into a whirlwind, secret romance. But is what he shares with her strong enough to overcome the media's prying eyes? Together Jake and Diamond must discover what's truly important...if they're to claim a love that lasts a lifetime.

This is one of the best Brenda Jackson novels. Pete Ohms is a good narrator and I enjoy his voice. Good Job Brenda!

BrendaHoldingBack & Pete Sleepy

The storyline alone was great. The passion bewteen the main charactors was intense. However Brenda passed over opportunities to make the story more exciting in at least two cases..maybe more. The father daughter angle, Diamond and her ex-husband, the search for the camera man, Dex's ex-wife. Dont want to give too much away but Imagine a crime show where they caught the suspect without a chase all the time. I'd sit back ready for the ride and then sat up straight like what the what? lol Pete is a great narrator over all but his voice needs more fluctuation at times; not just a breathy falsetto.
