Meet the Author

Diana Palmer is renowned as one of North America\u2019s top ten romance writers. When she published her first novel in 1979, fans immediately fell in love with her sensual, charming romances. A die-hard romantic who married her husband five days after they met, Diana says that she wrote her first book at age thirteen—and has been hooked ever since. Diana\u2019s hobbies include gardening, knitting, quilting, anthropology, astronomy and music.

Read an Excerpt


She bumped into him because he stopped so abruptly. "Don't do that!" She
straightened her hat. "There was a dime novel about you, didn't you know?
It came out close to a year ago, just after that case where you caught the
ringleader of some bank robbery gang and shot him. They called you
Magnificent Matt Davis!"

"I'm going to be sick," he said, and looked as if he meant it.

"Now, now, it can't be so bad to be a hero. Just think, one day you can
show a copy of that novel to your children and be a hero to them, too."

"I won't have children," he said shortly, staring straight ahead.

"Why not?" she asked. "Don't you like them?"

He looked down at her evenly. "Probably as much as you do. Isn't
twenty-six about the right age to be called a spinster?"

She flushed. "I don't have to get married to have a child," she informed
him haughtily. "Or a lover!"

He gave her a speaking look.

Odd, she thought, how that look made her feel. She swallowed hard. It
sounded good at suffragist meetings to say such things, but when she
looked at Matt, she thought of how it would be to have him as a lover, and
her knees went wobbly. She actually knew very little about such things,
except that one of her suffragist friends had said that it hurt a lot and
it wasn't fun at all.

"Your father would beat you with a buggy whip if he heard you talk like
that!"

"Well, who else can I say such things to?" she demanded, glaring at him.
"I don't know any other men!"

"Not even the persistent soldier?" he asked venomously.

She shifted. "He never bathes. And there were crumbs in hismustache."

He burst out laughing.

"Never mind," she grumbled, and started walking again. "I'll just keep my
scandalous thoughts to myself until I can find a group of suffragists to
join." She looked at him from the corner of her eyes. "Do you know where
they meet?"

"I never attend suffragist meetings myself; I'm much too busy with my
knitting."

She punched his arm playfully.

"I'm sure you'll find them," he said quickly.

"I expect they have a low tolerance for liquor, as well," she mused aloud.
"Do you have a hatchet?"

"Only Indians carry hatchets," he informed her. "I'm a detective. I carry
a .32 caliber Smith and Wesson double action revolver."

"You never taught me to shoot a pistol."

"And I never will," he said. He gave her a wry glance. "One day, the
temptation might be too much for you. It wouldn't look good on my record
if you shot me. We're here."

Matt took her elbow and guided her up the steps of a brownstone house with
long windows and a huge door with a lion's head knocker. He escorted her
inside, then paused outside a closed door and knocked.

"Just a minute," a musical voice called. "I'm coming."

The door opened and a tiny woman with gray-streaked blond hair in a bun
looked way up at Matt and then at his companion.

"Why, Mr. Davis, have you found a wife at last?"

Tess flushed scarlet and Matt cleared his throat.

"This is my cousin, Tess Meredith, Mrs. Mulhaney. Her father has died, and
she has no relatives except me. Is that room on the third floor still
vacant?"

"Yes, it is, and I'd be delighted to rent it to Miss Meredith." She smiled
at Tess, a thousand unspoken questions in her blue eyes.

Tess smiled back. "I'd be very grateful to have a place to stay near
Matt." She looked up at him with sickening adoration. "Isn't he just the
sweetest man?"

"Sweet" wasn't an appellation that had ever connected itself with the
enigmatic Mr. Davis in Mrs. Mulhaney's mind, but she supposed to a
kinswoman he might be.

"He is a kindhearted soul," she agreed. "Now, Miss Meredith, you can have
meals with us. Mr. Davis will tell you the times, and there's a laundry
just three doors down run by Mr. Lo."

Matt stifled a chuckle. "I'll show her where it is," he promised.

"Let me get the key and I'll take you to your room, Miss Meredith. It has
a very nice view of the city."

She went off, mumbling to herself, and Tess lifted both brows as she
looked up at Matt. "And what was so amusing about the laundry?"

"Don't you remember? Whites used to call us Mr. Lo."

She frowned.

He made an exasperated sound. "Lo, the poor Indian ...?"

She laughed. "Oh, good heavens. I'd forgotten our jokes about that."

"I haven't," he murmured. "You and I joked. Everywhere else being called
Mr. Lo or 'John' most of my life was not funny."

"Well, you're anything but a poor Indian now," she said pointedly, her
gaze going over his rich paisley vest in shades of magenta and the dark
gray suit and white shirt he was wearing with it. Even his shoes were
expensive, handmade. For feet that size, she thought wickedly, they'd have
to be handmade! She searched his dark eyes with a smile in her own. "You
look filthy rich to me!" she whispered.

"Tess!"

"I'll reform," she promised, but hadn't time to say more because Mrs.
Mulhaney was back with the key.

    okay

    The novel was okay, the only thing that I hate about her books is that its 99% always the same female character, blond with intriguing eyes, why can't she add any diversity to her novels?

    Great Story!

    Once again Diana Palmer has given us a story we can get interested right away and stay interested all the way to the end.
    The story flows so easy that I read it one Sunday afternoon while my husband was watching football.
    I loved it!

    this is a gotta read story

    diana palmer writes a good love story and this is no exception! this is an historical love story, crossing racial boundaries. in the early 1900's, no one did this, but when one grows up within another's race, the boundaries do not exist. this story shows that in a very good way. a love story that will leave a good feeling in your heart, and wishing it didn't have to end. yes, it's that good!
