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. :)

Morie Brannt is trying to create a life for herself. She's the daughter of wealthy and well known cattle baron King Brannt and his top model wife, Shelby. So why is she working as a hired ranch hand on Rancho Real in Wyoming? Because she is doing what she loves, learning to work a ranch, since her father would not teach her and her brother thinks she is just plain nuts. But Morie loves what she does. Too bad she doesn't like her boss, Mallory Kirk. Mallory's opinion of women leaves a lot to be desired and he isn't going to give Morie any leeway. If she wants this job she is going to need to work for it just like the men on his ranch.

Taken under the wing of an older and wiser hand and with Mallory's brothers for moral support, Morie tries to make a new life, appreciated for what she can do not just for what she is worth.

Throw in Mallory's jealous and suspicious girlfriend, an escaped convict hiding on the ranch, fancy dinner parties, the theft of a family heirloom and a surprising family member showing up at the ranch to put Morie in over her head and you have plenty of conflict.

Morie is a wonderful character, someone trying to be who she isn't but her true nature and passion come to the front at every turn. She is a constant source of surprise for Mallory and brings out the very best in him while also bringing out the very worst.

He is a typical Diana Palmer heartthrob hero...tall, sexy, stubborn, unwilling to believe he could be wrong and fighting falling for the wrong woman who is really the only right woman.

Diana Palmer has been a staple among romance fans for years now. She has always maintained a steady stream of devoted readers while consistently attracting new generations.

I must say that I really enjoyed this book. I am a "huge" Diana Palmer fan and have all her books. This one was "much, much" better than some of her latest ones have been. It was great finding characters from some of her other books - like visiting old friends. It was wonderful reading a story again in her "tried and true" style that we all love.

"Wyoming Tough" is the first in a proposed new series. I presume that the hero's tortured brothers will also have their own books, as will the random other characters introduced - Tenny Welsh, Ty Harding, Morie's brother Cort...

It seems that several issues I have had with previous Palmer books have been addressed- there were no egregious history lectures to interrupt the flow of the narrative, no random rants on Native American rights/oppression, and Morie is not a poor, downtrodden girl with a serious medical issue. That said, "Wyoming Tough" is an improvement over many of DP's recent books, but by no means is an excellent book. The sentence structure is choppy, with many short sentences rather than linking them to create more complex sentences. The antagonist, Gelly Bruner, is DP's typical evil girlfriend of the hero standing in the way of true love. She's a cardboard cutout, as are most of the other characters in this book.

Will I buy her next release "True Blue"? Yes. Why? Because for all their flaws, I find Diana Palmer's books to be true guilty pleasures. I don't read them to be enlightened, but to see what eye-rolling situations her fertile mind can create, and how she will slightly alter her formula of <much> older hero/young, naive, underemployed heroine.

Let me just start off by saying that I so wanted to fall in love with Diana Palmer again! I have been a huge fan of hers for well over 17 years & have purchased everything that she has ever written (even her earliest books written under psuedoname). I always felt such a connection to her story lines & couldn't wait for her to produce her latest tall texan. Fast forward to the 21st century and something went terribly wrong. Palmer's formula for success quickly took a nosedive south & then has continued in that pattern ever since. What happened? How can one's style of writing change so drastically? No longer is there a tender love story with a maddening cowboy and sassy/sweet lady. No longer is there any interaction between the main characters leading up to the inevitable downfall of said cowboy. Now all we have is the hope of a story line that will make you laugh, cry & cuss (again said cowboy) - all of which I have done with Ms. Palmer. But, no. What we do receive are characters who do not interact with each other until halfway thru a 200 page book, no connection, no emotion, NO believabilty what-so-ever that these couples could have even lukewarm feelings about each other...let alone end up in bed together by the end of the book. I never thought that I would give up my faith in such a talented writer (and quite honestly she will always be favorite for her earlier works) but it has happened. I will no longer anxiously await another Diana Palmer book ever again. Nor will I purchase one. From the other reviews written for this book, I had gained such false hope, only to be let down once again. Ms. Palmer has truly lost her romantic touch and I have finally come to the conclusion that it is gone for good. I will have to console myself with one of her greats...off to find the Cowboy and the Lady!!!
