Publisher's Summary

Passion and danger collide in a breathtaking story from New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer

Saved from an abduction and unthinkable harm, Gabrielle Bennett owed her life to her rescuer. Marc Stephano, a stranger from the sketchy shadows of town, could've asked for money. Instead, he introduced her to desire and claimed her completely - then he broke her heart.

Older, wiser and now a top New York model, Gabrielle is prepared for anything - except Marc's reemergence into her life. It's a merciless trick of fate. A successful, self-made millionaire, he's as powerful as ever. And he wants her. Forgive and forget don't apply when heartbreak is at stake. Yet the attraction between them refuses to back down.

The choice is hers: hurt Marc in the name of revenge, or give in to love.

Love Diana Palmer but, let's get back to Jacobsville. And please our hero smokes like a train not good. Good story and an enjoyable read.I simply love the Texas folks so I have expectations of Ms Palmer that do not include moving to New York City.

Horrible narrator.

Put down several times before I finished. Narrator has a good voice but not for a lady.

Really bad


I regret this purchase. Have read other books by this author and loved them - this one must be a really early work

Early Palmer still very good~ Horrible Narration~

plot: Marco Stephano rescues young Gabby from a group of thugs. Gabby falls in love with much older Marco.

Teenage Gabby falls in love instantly with hunky Marco Stephano who rescues her from an assault. As the friendship and passion heat up, Marco soon leaves Gabby with a bribe from her wealthy father to leave her alone. Years later Gabby is now a model and involved with Marco's troubled younger brother. This was a very early book from Diana Palmer. I love her early books she is more descriptive with her heroines. This story movies along well and it has a good plot. Sadly what lacks is the narration. Todd McClaren is good with male voices but his silly female voice sets your teeth on edge. Why they cannot get this right? Read the reviews. Still a good listen for Diana Palmer fans. HInt hint hint: how about some of those Diana Blayne early romances? (Diana Blayne) was an early pen name for Diana Palmer and she wrote for Candlelight books.

Horrible Narrator!

The narrator doing a female voice was awful!! Story was okay but it seemed to drag on forever especially listening to this narrator.

Horrible

Horrible plot. Stupid Voices terrible. I thought the plot was fair I needed a book to listen in car. Once her dad leaves town pure trash about 1/4 way through is when I stopped listening. My phone ran it to the end.

Good story, narrator?

Narrator not good on female voices, very distracting. Good story and characters. Diana Palmer always weaves a good tale.

Disappointing

Having the male narrator do the famale characters voice was a horrible idea...horrible. The story dragged on with an annoying naive female... I struggled...

cheezy

This book started off ok, then the main character turned into a brainless, whiny, whimpering idiot (the girl). the story contradicted itself a lot. ending was lame and rushed through.

Okay but

This story could have been told abridged. Narrator as always was fab😇 if you like R rated this should suit.

Old school Palmer

This is an OLD book newly released on audio. When you listen to it there are clues that its from the 80's or so.

The story overall is pure Palmer of old, with overly macho hero and very female but strong minded heroine. These elements setup for lots of miscommunication and jumping to the wrong conclusion until events manage to put the 2 leads in a situation where things have to be talked out.

This is a romance but in true Palmer style the intimacy is there but blurred somewhat with language that stays out of using crudeness.

Overall this was an enjoyable listen and a nice toss back to old Palmer.

The narrator has done several of her books but still makes all the heroines sound the same. His voice is OK to the ear and not jarring.

Enjoy

Truly Awful

Not sure what era this is supposed to be set in but it has every cliche from a dodgy Hollywood gangster B movie. Complete will one dimensional characters, stilted dialogue and completely unbelievable plot. Time to hang up your pen DP.
