Publisher's Summary

A cowboy through and through, ranch owner Mallory Kirk knows what it means to put in a full day’s work. But does his new cowgirl? He has his doubts that Morie Brannt will be able to pull her own weight, even if the petite young woman does seem to have a lot of spirit. As they spar over events at the ranch and a past that threatens their hopes for the future, sparks begin to fly, and Mallory can’t help but notice Morie in a new light. But is this tough Wyoming man ready to love?

Great Start

This book is the start of a great trilogy. Very well written and beautifully romantic. Can't wait till the whole series gets out.

Handsome rancher's new ranch hand hides a surprise

What did you love best about Wyoming Tough?

I enjoyed the ins and outs of everyday ranch work as described in the book as I grew up around cowboys and ranch hands myself. There is a good storyline here and Mallory Kirk is a very strong character. Surprised however that he was so easily fooled by the rag girlfriend who could not leave quick enough for me. Morie Brannt is a very strong heroine in this story. Gives as good as she gets though she is still vulnerable to her feelings for him. She of course, is hiding things from him as all heroines seem to do. Lots of good support characters who I am sure will get books or make appearances in later books.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wyoming Tough?

The scene at her father's ranch when Mallory is finally presented with the truth. Hard for a strong man like him to face all his mistakes in front of all those people. He is a good man after all.

Which scene was your favorite?

I had many that I enjoyed and can't decide on any one over the other that I would listen to over and over. There are many funny and sad moments in the story that bear hearing again.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Not good at tag lines so will not try here.

Any additional comments?

I like the way Phil does all the male characters. He does suttle accents very well and does a very good drawl. I like to be able to tell a character is older and he does that well too. I do wish that his women's voices were better. They are more times than not too high pitched and more annoying than sensual. Love scenes can be tough indeed when the woman sounds like that. Hopefully that will improve one day because he is really a very good narrator.

HO hum~ Another Heroine with a SECRET~ 3 STARS

PLOT: rich Mallory Kane notices the new hired hand lovely Morie~

Standard wealthy Palmer heroine who gets her first JOB on Mallory Kanes Cattle Ranch. Morrie is lovely and innocent and is very attracted to sexy boss Mallory but at his side is Gaeli his nasty lady friend who lets NO one stand in her way. Typical Palmer fare but she has lost the abusive HERO thank God~ this one drags a bit going over and over characters from her previous books. Morie finally is fired after Gaeli plants evidance she stole. and the Hero finally has his eyes opened ~ WE need more passion here Diana and less going endlessly how inept Morie is. I have to give this one 1 star for performer~ Phil is a wonderful reader but when he tries to imitate a FEMALE voice it makes me cringe ~ romance audio is better with female readers~ hint hint hint~ BETTER than some of Diana's later novels~ I give this one 3 stars for over all story, 1 star for MALE voice trying be female and 3 stars for over all ~ and where is the Passion Diana?? you seemed to have forgottent that. and how about RELEASING SOME OF HER EARLIER TITLES??? HINT HINT HINT~ THOSE ARE HER VERY BEST STORIES ANY WAY~

Disappointed!

I enjoy westerns and I'm a big fan of John Wayne and Tom Selleck. Yet, I am bewildered by this authors constant cry of being religious, then having explicit sex scenes. I don't but it. Besides, religion is man made and can be twisted any way you want, as evidenced in this book. It was an interesting story well read by the narrator, soiled by the soft porn. It's really too bad.

GREAT STORY GREAT COWBOY NARRATION TERRIBLE WOMANS

What did you like best about Wyoming Tough? What did you like least?

Really enjoyed this story, somewhat ruined however by the narrators womens voice!! was the most wimpy annoying voice ever, completely ruined the mood. Did an amazing manly cowboy narration though so cannot say the narrator was completely terrible just wish they had done something else for the womans.

Love narrator voice

The storyline was good but the deep rugged voice of Phil Gigante was so realistic for a cowboy.

unimaginative

the story is so contrived. this was listed as steamy but the only steamy part was at the very end and included the line, "I am sure you can see I am very well endowed"...ugh, why did I finish this book. That narrator tried to add some interest but the writing was worse than Twilight.

It was a okay read

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Have a woman read the females parts and have a little more loving, sexual situation.

If you’ve listened to books by Diana Palmer before, how does this one compare?

I have listened to other books by Diane Palmer, liked the other books way better. I loved the way we were introduced to ranch life, the cowboys day to day life.

What three words best describe Phil Gigante’s performance?

He did the male voices very good, the females not so good.

Was Wyoming Tough worth the listening time?

I liked the book okay, I guess so, it helped with the passage of time. I enjoyed reading about ranch life.

Any additional comments?

I am glad that I didn't use a credit or cash on this book. I got it from the Romance Package. A good cowboy romance, without the heat. Good for someone who like sweet romance, without a lot of sex.

Only okay

The narrator had a odd feminine voice. It distracted me while I tried to listen.
