Editorial Reviews

Review

"Diana Palmer is a unique talent . . . Her writing combines wit, humor and sensuality . . ." -- New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard

Customer Reviews

Jason is also one of the worst characters Palmer has made.
Krystal
Note: This is one of Diana's sexier books with scenes some like myself feel are better when left to the imagination.
Amazon Customer
Romances today feature stronger women and male leads who have more to offer than good looks and money.

This was the first Diana Palmer book I read. I picked it up after a friend recommended her as a nice change from the cookie cutter romances I was burning out on. I didn't know this was a re-issued book at the time but honestly that doesn't matter much. A good story shouldn't be about being "politically correct" as one person stated but about good characters that are human and not perfect. Diana Palmer's style of a younger woman falling for an older man was refreshing to see outside historical novels. It adds a new dimension to the novel, a way to view things without having both the hero and herione jaded and bitter.
This story takes place in West Texas, something I loved because I live here and I could picture every scene so perfectly. It's hard to find writers who place stories in Texas and can do it both well and accurately.
The hero of this story is Jason who owns of the Diamond Spur, a sprawling cattle ranch in the dry, dusty Texas backland. Kate is the naive, playful herione who has loved Jason since she met him at 18. Jason and Kate have a unique, non-threatening relationship until one day, Jason begins to see that Kate has grown into a woman.
I really liked the first part of this story. The tension between these two characters was explosive and they pratically sizzled together. Jason and Kate are irresistably drawn together and you can't help getting a little breathless reading their scenes and wondering why no handsome cowboy ever popped into your life? But these scenes were heavily tempered by lengthy and long winded sections about Kate's asspirations to be a fashion designer and her job at the local textile factory.

I was on my way out of town and pick this book up on a whim as I breezed through a book store...I love western romance, but I had a hard time finishing this one!

I did'nt realize it was a reissue, and after checking other reveiws after I returned home..I can see now why this rancher was such a demanding man (I am glad times have changed!).

Anyway...this paperback was a waste of paper...I didn't care for the way Jason treated Kate and I felt it was borderline abusive and Kate just put up with it! Half of the book was spent describing what everyone was wearing, do you really need to know what someone has on everytime they enter the room? or when they light a cigarette? The romance was hard to find in this novel..at least the heart pounding kind I was looking for! I will be more careful when I grab a Diana Palmer book in the future..

After reading the reviews on this book I was extremely hesitant to buying this novel. However, I bought it on a wim and absolutely loved it. I can not disagree more with the other reviews. Diana Palmer takes Kate and Jason through a whirl wind of emotional stir. Kate having always been looked at as his "little sister" caused Jason some serious life questions. An unexpected twist put them through more emotion then I have seen in most books. Granted he does smoke a lot, which is a huge turn off, however his flaws make up who he is. This book does a lot of repeat actions and arguments, however, I throughly enjoyed the emotional twister!

Kate Whitman is the only person living in San Frio that isn't afraid of rancher, Jason Donovan's, temper. Since she was eighteen and looked Jason in the eye during one of his many rages, she earned more than his respect, she earned his friendship which is something that not many people have. It wasn't until about a year later that Kate realized that she felt more for Jason than just friendship. The only problem was that Jason wasn't looking for marriage. Being deserted by his mother when he was a child, he didn't trust anyone and his first and last try at getting married ended badly. Kate knew that all she had to do was get Jason to trust her and then everything else would fall in to place.
Jason had only noticed lately how attractive Kate was under the exterior. Being raised by a father who taught him that a woman's place was in the home, the only thing Jason couldn't accept about Kate was her career as a clothes designer. He knew that he wanted a woman that put him first and wanted a family too.
Diamond Spur was not one of Diana Palmer's best books. With his cavemen way of thinking, all I wanted to do was slap Jason right out of the book. It was basically four hundred pages of run arounds and misunderstandings with no plot whatsoever. I was very dissapointed, but I can see how this book would be popular in the late eighties.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read this book years ago and enjoyed it during that time, but when I reread it recently, I cringed at the abusive behavior of the lead character Jason and the head in the sand, unreal behavior of the heroine Kate and wondered what I ever thought was good about it. I was actually embarrassed at the behaviors of both characters and skimmed through much of the book just to get through it. The story starts out with the same old plot of the couple knowing each other for years, the hero was done wrong by another woman, so lets take it out on the poor, virginal heroine who knows nothing about anything plot. Jason just flat out stinks as any kind of romantic lead at all. He verbally and emotionally punishes Kate for his "growing" feelings toward her and she just sits back and takes it! This man has the audacity to have sex with this young woman and then "punishes" her by staying away because he doesn't want marriage. I would severely recommend to all readers to skip this book if you have not read it. This is more like a battlefield than a romance and you will be disappointed.
