I love Diana Palmer, however, I really didn't care for this book. There was just something about it that got on my nerves. More than likely it was the many stories going on at the same time.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Took a little while to get into it (was a little disappointed in the writing itself), but it took off after a few chapters. :)

This book is the 1st book that I read from Diana Palmer. Now she is one of my favorite author's. I have read lots of her books. I hope to be able to read more of her books. The books that I have read from her I read over and over again. When I read this book I was so into it that I didn't want to put it down. It made me want to know what happens to the other characters in the book after I read it. I hope who all reads this book and any other of Diana Palmer's would joy reading them!!!

I really liked this book! It had 2 heroine and of course the girl was a virgin! It had 3 steamy sex scenes. Judd couldnt make up his mind about Crisable but didnt want Cash to have her either. Lot of mystery, jealousy, misunderstandings. It also had a great ending. I highly recommend it and cant wait to read Cash's story next Renegade!

Texas Ranger Judd Dunn married Crissy Gaines 5 years ago, so she wouldn't have to give up the farm when her dad went to jail. But she's not about to let him go.

This is the first book that I have read by Diana Palmer and I was not disappointed and will be reading more of her books. The book focuses on Christabel Gaines and Judd Dunn. These 2 are legally married on paper for the sake of both of their interests in the cattle ranch that they jointly own. Christabel has a major crush on Judd, but Judd feels he is too old for her and he can't figure out his feelings for her. He is also a Texas ranger. Judd and Christabel have known each other for a long time and he basically saved her from her alcoholic father and also helped with her mother. Judd is investigating 2 murders and there have also been some cattle poisonings on their ranch. Enter Cash Grier, who is older than Judd, and shows a lot of interest in Christabel, which makes Judd jealous. There is also Tippy Moore, an actress, who makes Christabel jealous. There are many more adventures than what I have mentioned, but I don't want to say more and ruin the story. This book kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next and I could hardly put it down. I highly recommend this book!

Christabel has been secretly married to Texas Ranger Judd Dunn since she was 16 years old. Making Christabel his wife to protect her from a sadistic, abusive father, Judd has remained adamant that their union be on paper only, with the understanding that the two of them will get an annulment as soon as she turns 21; but as her twenty-first birthday nears, Christabel is determined to consummate their marriage. Meanwhile they've allowed a movie company to use their failing ranch to raise money. While Tippy Moore, the beautiful star, makes major moves on Judd, fellow law enforcement officer Cash Grier begins courting Christabel. Adding to the will-they-or-won't-they question are a number of subplots, including the murder of a young woman and the poisoning of prize bulls.

Palmer, a romance writer (Desperado) whose steamy tales often center around stereotypically sexy, straight-shooting lawmen and the virginal women who adore them, returns to the range with her latest contemporary western fairy tale. When Texas Ranger Judd Dunn secretly marries 16-year-old Christabel "Chrissy" Gaines, his partner on a small ranch in southeast Texas, the 34-year-old's only intent is to help Chrissy flee her abusive father and protect his family's share of the ranch. Judd plans on having their marriage annulled when Chrissy turns 21, but the cute blonde computer whiz who bakes apple pies, manages the ranch books and takes care of the livestock has other plans-she is hopelessly in love with him. When Judd rents out the struggling ranch to a film company, Chrissy, now 20, finds a rival for his affections in supermodel and actress Tippy Moore, a sardonic Julia Roberts clone. The spunky spitfire retaliates by finding herself another suitor, Judd's friend, assistant police chief Cash Grier, a former Ranger and possible covert assassin. Both men are investigating some local murders and suspicious livestock poisonings connected to a disgruntled ranch hand. Wide-eyed Chrissy eventually lassoes her man, but only after a rescue that's as corny as anything Hollywood could conjure. Palmer's characters are about as believable as a tornado in January, but readers looking for steamy, undemanding escapism will find this fits the bill.
