More About the Author

I was born in south Georgia(USA), graduated from high school in Atlanta, married my husband, James, in Habersham County, and graduated from Piedmont College(Demorest, GA) summa cum laude in history with minors in anthropology and Spanish in 1995.

I worked for over 16 years as a newspaper reporter on both weekly and daily papers. In between reporting jobs, I had a son, Blayne, my greatest creative achievement. I love iguanas and most other animals, and am the biggest geek on earth. If it's electronic, and non-lethal, I probably have one. I was always the kid who was out of step with the rest of the world, and I still am. My father was a college professor, so my sister and I grew up not quite understanding what prejudice was.

I traveled a lot when I was more mobile than I am now, and I never met a person I didn't like. Writing books is more than a job to me, it's my life, next to being a wife, mother and grandmother. I am a person of faith, but I respect all religions and all cultures.

I write romantic suspense for HQN books, mass market and series contemporary romance for Harlequin, and science fiction novels for Luna Books. In my spare time, I sleep. :)

Let me begin with my positive comments on "Nora."

This was my first Diana Palmer novel, and without a doubt, it has been one of the three books I own that I was unable to put down. I felt like I really understood her characters, their personalities, and felt the raw emotion each character experienced. The story line was fantastic and I felt her knowledge of the Industrial Revolution and turn of the century attire was done well.

Now for my negative comments. I found it hard to relate to Nora in the after math of her fights with Cal. How Diana wrote their conflicts left me literally crying because I was so hurt by Cal's comments. Now, don't get me wrong, having a reader literally cry because your writing is so good, that is a pure sign of a best selling author. However, I felt there should have been more dialogue of apology rather than quick to the bedroom sex.

I found once Cal and Nora fought and she lost her baby, I couldn't relate to the story anymore because I couldnt forgive Cal for all the hurtful, cruel things he said to Nora. I felt Diana should have spent more time writing an apologetic or morseful Cal so that the reader could fall in love with him again. It was almost abusive in my opinion and it really turned me off completely.

I would possibly read another Diana Palmer just because the story was so well written, and this was my first Diana Palmer novel, I just hope the discourse between the two in love is not so cruel.

Calloway is just like you imagine a cowboy from that era to be. Especially liked the link with her previous historical novel Amelia. Also we get a brief mention of Jared Dunn who has his own story in Noelle

I wasn't a fan of Cal...most of the time I thought he was an arrogant jerk! I liked the beginning and end of the story, but not the middle. I got so mad a Cal I didn't want to finish reading it. Although, in defense of Palmer, I do think the story was realistic in regards to the characters' actions. Many people jump to conclusions and misinterpret things causing hurt feelings and anger. However, if I am reading a story, I don't really want the realistic, I want the fairytale where the hero sweeps me off my feet.

It was a really great Diana Palmer read. I am a huge D P fan. It doesn't take me long to read her books. This one took me 2-3 hours. Not solid though. I did other things while reading the book like cooking and cleaning. Whoo, there were moments I would have slapped Cal upside the head for his treatment of Nora. Just because she was an easterner and didn't know better. He made it up to her in the end like always. I think we all can relate to characters like Nora. Brought up a certain way to avoid a certain kind of people. Anyways, loved the book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the BEST historical romance books that Diana Palmer ever wrote. It has action, love, hate, and misunderstanding. I feel in love with Cal Barton. He is a man that dreams are made of. The very first time I read this book by heart went to fluttering. I got mad at Cal and aggrivated at Nora but yet I still understood them. I still wanted things to "work out" for them. From the first page to the last it held my attention. I have read this book over and over again and just can not make myself get rid of it. It is one of those books that I just had to hang on to and will probably end up keeping it FOREVER. If you get a chance to read this-don't hesitate. I really think you will enjoy it.
