Great author. Terrific story!

Christabel (Crissy) Gaines and Judd have been friends for a long time. Though fourteen years separate their ages, she has been in love with him for years. In fact, you would think she would be thrilled, she has been his wife for five years, since she was sixteen and he rescued her from her abusive father. .......... The drawback is that the union is only in name, Judd has never touched her, just been her friend, protector, and business partner. She is almost of age to be able to stand on her own, and then Judd will annul the marriage. To Crissy, it looks like he is more than ready for them both to move on, but Judd's life as a Texas Ranger has made a few enemies for him, and now one of them is planning to use Crissy to get to him. Will danger awaken the passion she has longed for for so long? ........... ***** Once again, Diana Palmer follows the lines that she has used to win fans and create a successful career. The days of the wild west seem closer, and she utilizes the marriage of convenience plotline that has worked well with Regencies. As always, a young, innocent but spunky heroine loves a man it would be impossible not to love. Judd, like all her Texas men, will win your heart, just as he wins Crissy's.

OK, good story

This was a good story, but there were just some parts that were so cheesy that it ruined it for me. I like realistic romance. This wasn't it.

    Good story, but¿

    I thought the story started out great, but some where along the line the hero was just too indecisive. I think he should have realized how much he loved her before he made love to her and perhaps some other obstacles could have drawn the story out better.

    I am an avid Diana Palmer reader, I love her books, the story lines are somewhat the same as other readers have stated, but I am never disappointed with her stories. I wish Judd would've realized sooner what he felt for Chrissy.

    Christabel Gaines and Judd Dunn have a long history and some of it is neither pleasant or pretty. Yet Christabel has always known she could count on him to watch out for her and to help when she needed it most. Judd Dunn, a former cop and now Texas Ranger has lived a strict moral code. That is the reason he married Chrissy when she was only sixteen. Their paper marriage will end in two months when she turns twenty-one. Chrissy doesn't know when her feelings changed but she knows Judd doesn't want her that way. With her scars she will doesn't think any man will ever want her. Then the danger in Judd's life encroaches on Christabel and all bets are off.


    Diana Palmer and Long Tall Texans go together like bread and butter. I first read Ms. Palmer more than twenty-five years ago and she has never failed to deliver a romantic story that did not have a strong male lead and a woman strong enough to love them, flaws and all. With over fifty books either in the series or a connecting spin-off each has been filled with conflict, danger, suspense and a belief that love will triumph if you are willing to risk your heart. In Lawless it may take a while but the chance is there. If Dunn didn't wait too long to realize the pearl he held within his hand. Perhaps Chrissy has decided to accept the attention of another. After all a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Especially when to bird is cooing of romance and forever.


    Do you like a memorable romance with a dangerous alpha male. Then this is a series to touch your soul.
