Read full description of the books:
What do I say about this one…started out so promisingly and then sorta lost me midwayish. I so love this ‘hero loves another’ trope but seldom an author delivers on this one. What interested me immediately was that the H, a woman hater actually likes n is quite fond of our h – a real rarity I thought sitting up bcuz generally the womanhating is reserved solely for the h .. but alas that came undone in the very first chapter itself :/
(view spoiler)[ Ok a few gems about the H, the author tells us ..
‘..It was well-known in the community that Hank had no use for a woman except in one way. He was discreet and tight-lipped about his liaisons, and only Dana seemed to know that he had them. He was remarkably outspoken with her. In fact, he talked to her about private things that he shared with nobody else…..’
n my eyebrows just simply vanished somewhere upstairs…he’s 38 (I think)..n she’s the 22 year old neighbor’s kid! And he discusses his sexlife with her!!! Dayummm!!! And this was page 10 or 12 I think…n we are just being introduced to the characters…but then I rallied thinking okaaay they have this very special relationship, this misogynist n his virgin..n let's read on. But things just went downhill frm there. His ex, whom he still has the hots for, is coming back n after some insults n sneering for the poor h, the H/h get down to this moc thing with the H specifically laying down that it wud strictly be a paper marriage n no hanky panky involved. But right on the wedding night ( after a cheap n shoddy vegas wedding) he seduces the poor drunk besotted girl n does the deed. Thereafter he proceeds to ignore her for the nxt 2 weeks till the ow lands. And seriously here’s the part I hated most. One look n he realizes he still wants his ex, and in fact sticks his tongue down her throat right in front of her husband. Really gross. I just fell in hate with him there and then. Loving n fantasizing sexually about the ow is okay imo till the H/h don’t have sex. But once they do and it was a damn good sex scene if you ask me, still getting turned on physically by the ow? Unforgivable! Of course he eventually does discover his love fr the poor ill treated h but that dint restore my respect.
And then in the end, read this..
"Considering the sort of man I am-and I think you know me pretty well by now-do you think I'm capable of making love to one woman when I'm in love with someone else? “She searched his eyes. "Well, no, I don't think so. You're pretty old-fashioned like that. “He nodded. "So how could I have made love to you so completely that one time if I'd really been in love with Betty?"
I mean .. seriously?! He was sleeping around as he used to so nicely share with her in the beginning and now he says he couldn’t have if he really loved the lady. Then why dint it click in his moronic brain all these past ten years that he dint really love the barracuda. And even if the author had brought in the convenient 'sex vs making love' defense, i wud still have snorted loudly, (hide spoiler)]

Diana Palmer is a pseudonym for author Susan Kyle.
Susan Eloise Spaeth was born on 11 December 1946 in Cuthbert, Georgia, USA. She was the eldest daughter of Maggie Eloise Cliatt, a nurse and also journalist, and William Olin Spaeth, a college professor. Her mother was part of the women's liberation movement many years before it became fashionable. Her best friends are her mother and her sister, Dannis Spaeth (Cole), who now has two daughters, Amanda Belle Hofstetter and Maggie and lives in Utah. Susan grew up reading Zane Grey and fell in love with cowboys. Susan is a former newspaper reporter, with sixteen years experience on both daily and weekly newspapers. Since 1972, she has been married to James Kyle and have since settled down in Cornelia, Georgia, where she started to write romance novels. Susan and her husband have one son, Blayne Edward, born in 1980.
She began selling romances in 1979 as Diana Palmer. She also used the pseudonyms Diana Blayne and Katy Currie, and her married name: Susan Kyle. Now, she has over 40 million copies of her books in print, which have been translated and published around the world. She is listed in numerous publications, including Contemporary Authors by Gale Research, Inc., Twentieth Century Romance and Historical Writers by St. James Press, The Writers Directory by St. James Press, the International Who's Who of Authors and Writers by Meirose Press, Ltd., and Love's Leading Ladies by Kathryn Falk. Her awards include seven Waldenbooks national sales awards, four B. Dalton national sales awards, two Bookrak national sales awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award for series storytelling from Romantic Times, several Affaire de Coeur awards, and two regional RWA awards.
Inspired by her husband, who quit a blue-collar manufacturing job to return to school and get his diploma in computer programming, Susan herself went back to college as a day student at the age of 45. In 1995, she graduated summa cum laude from Piedmont College, Demorest, GA, with a major in history and a double minor in archaeology and Spanish. She was named to two honor societies (the Torch Club and Alpha Chi), and was named to the National Dean's List. In addition to her writing projects, she is currently working on her master's degree in history at California State University. She hopes to specialize in Native American studies. She is a member of the Native American Rights Fund, the American Museum of Natural History, the National Cattlemen's Association, the Archaeological Institute of Amenca, the Planetary Society, The Georgia Conservancy, the Georgia Sheriff's Association, and numerous conservation and charitable organizations. Her hobbies include gardening, archaeology, anthropology, iguanas, astronomy and music.
In 1998, her husband retired from his own computer business and now pursues skeet shooting medals in local, state, national and international competition. They love riding around and looking at the countryside, watching sci-fi on TV and at the movies, just talking and eating out.
