Overview

Invincible by Diana Palmer

He's everything she fears…

and everything she wants

Mercenary by name and by nature, Carson is a Lakota Sioux who stays to himself and never keeps women around long enough for anything emotional to develop. But working with his friend Cash Grier on a complex murder investigation provides Carson with another kind of fun—shocking Cash's sweet-but-traditional secretary, Carlie Blair, with tales of his latest conquests.

Then Carlie lands in deep trouble. She saw something she shouldn't have, and now the face of a criminal is stored permanently in her photographic memory…and Carlie is the key piece of evidence that could implicate a popular politician in the murder case.

Her only protection is Carson—the man she once despised. But when she learns that Carson is more than just a tough guy, Carlie realizes she's endangered herself further. Because now her only chance to live means losing her heart to the most dangerous kind of man….

Carlie was a woman of faith who held to old-fashioned values regarding intimacy; Carson was known for the constant parade of beautiful women who came and went in his life. She had faith; he had long since lost his. She had difficulties in her past that could have broken her, but she healed. He had difficulties in his past that he hadn't yet come to terms with. One thing that I particularly notice about Palmer romances is how friendless the female lead is. While everyone in town seems to respect and look out for her, she doesn't have any close female friends. On the other hand, the hero has a whole network of men who are close to him. This one tries to mix it up a bit, however. The Cartel of Evil Drug Lords (CEDL) is not the primary antagonist, but rather a corrupt politician in bed with the CEDL is the villain of the piece. Of course, everyone and their brother (literally!) from previous related books makes a cameo, guest or starring role appearance, whether it makes sense or not in the context of the plot. We do get a father who is not an abusive jerk (he's reformed and a minister), but he was a neglectful husband and contract assassin! I would read a story about Carlie's father any day, rather than the rehashed junk we've been getting from DP recently.  Overall, even though this book was filled with a typical Diana Palmer formula (aka shy, virginal, religious heroine and an overtly alpha male hero), it was an okay read. When I first heard that Diana Palmer would be writing and releasing Invincible, I was excited, as the plot sounded great. I can't put my finger on it, but I was left feeling like something was missing from this book.

4 STARS This is a familiar setting Jacobs County, Texas, with a lot of old familiar characters in the background. I probably did not even recognize some familiar names, but a lot I did. It had some surprises a long the way too. The heroine Carlie Blair is a woman of faith and a virgin. She is a secretary to Cash Grier. Her father is a preacher who has a secret past. Carlie drives a old truck, and is always forgetting her cell phone. She never dates. She loves military history and gaming. Carson is a Lakota Sioux. A medic. He dates beautiful fast women. He is helping to watch over Carlie and her father. Carson wants Carlie but he does not do commitments. Everyone keeps telling Carson to not hurt Carlie. Someone is either after Carlie or her father. They know a contract has been taken out but not why or for who. There are some characters that I really liked in the end that surprised me. It pays to be nice and friendly to everyone. I don't want to ruin the plot by saying too much. If you are one of the millions of readers who like Diana Palmer you will enjoy seeing old friends and make new ones along the way. Come and read Invincible and see what friends you recognize. I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give honest review of it by Net Galley and Harlequin.

It's a breath of fresh air to be able to read a series and not have the characters drop off into oblivion. You get the added bonus of seeing past stories develop and find out what is going on in their lives too.

Diana is a great story teller loved it

For me another winner from Diana ,can't get enough of Jacobsville. Loved the way the story tied a lot of loose ends from other books.Carli and Carson's story needed to be told. One needed to fight his demons and the other needed to be able to trust inner self. Good job but we need more.

I love Diana Palmer books! For me, this was a reread and I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Reading characters from Jacobsville and Comanche Wells is like visiting old friends. Carson, the wounded mercenary, and Carlie, the sweetheart everyone loves, are a great match. Carlie never lets go of her principals. Can Carson be healed? Recommended read! 4 stars

Title: Invincible - Long Tall Texans Author: Diana Palmer Published: 1-27-15 Publisher: Thorndike Press / Harlequin Pages: 297 Genre: Women's Fiction Sub Genre: Westerns, Romance ISBN: 9780373778805 ASIN: B00OHVLVAG Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley . Carson Farwalker is working with Jacobsville Chief of Police Cash Grier on a murder investigation linked to a replacement senator. He is intense and intimidating. He seems to have only one activity that seems to brings him any pleasure, that would be continually mocking and snarling at Grier's timid, prude secretary, Carlie Blair. Carson both fascinates and terrifies Carlie. Carlie is the daughter of a local minister. She is no stranger to violence and pain. Her grandmother and her boyfriend nearly kill her when she was younger when they came to rob her and her mother while her mother lay dying in the hospital. Then a short time ago she was a key witness in the murder investigation Carson and Cash are investigating. When the suspect was murdered himself everyone believed Carlie was safe. Once again Carlie was injured when she came to her father's aid when he was attacked by an intruder one night. Then it was discovered that the murderer took a contract out on Carlie's life. Now Carson and people of Jacobsville gather to protect one of their own. Carson avoids innocents like the plague, but that does not stop him from teasing and tormenting Carlie at every turn. He feels the attraction to Carlie, but fights it with sarcasm and his forceful personality to keep her at arm's length. When danger continues to follow Carlie and her father and they are thrown together, the attraction grows between them. Soon death could halt their push-pull relationship forever. One of Diana Palmer's best Long Tall Texan novels yet. The characters, some introduced in other Diana Palmer books, have enough background information that even Carson was likable. Making you sympathize with him even as you want to smack him for being such an ever condescending hot head. Although part of a series, Invincible can easily read as a standalone book.

It's not worth it. Don't waste your money. Hard to keep track of both the people and the plot. Very amatuerish.

Really enjoyed this book. If you like the rest of long tall Texans, you'll love this one

Invincible is the best of the Jacobsville books. Several characters from previous books are major players in this book including Cash and Garon Grier. Carlie is Cash's secretary and has a memory of a face she isn't aware of. That puts her in danger of being the next victim in a drug war. Her father, the Methodist minister, is more than what you see. Carson Farwalker is also more than what you see. Carson helps protect Carlie, and she saves his life, but she is afraid she will not be a part of that life. Carson has to put his past to rest before he can come home to Carlie. Worth reading again and again.

The complex character of Carson makes this a great read
SadieHunt More than 1 year ago
I recognized her name, but I’ve never read a Diana Palmer. And now I’ll never read another. A few pages in and my first impression was that Invincible was going to be one of those poorly written, poorly plotted, surface romances for which Harlequin – and the romance genre in general – has earned such a crappy reputation. Unfortunately, that first impression was also my final impression. I couldn’t stand the heroine – she seriously made me want to puke. Too much the good girl, too preachy in her morality, too focused on getting married and having babies. Also, too naive, too sheltered, and, even if she can spout strange, little-known factoids about war generals and Native American history, too freakin’ stupid to be alive. She thinks and acts like a 12-year-old, and allows people to treat her like a 12-year-old. Scratch that, every 12-year-old I know has YEARS of maturity on this chick and would never take the kind of condescension heaped on Carly from her father, her boss, her love interest, or hell, even her kidnapper! And all the secondary characters? Who are all these people and why do I care about them? They added nothing whatsoever to the plot. Wait, what plot? IMHO, the entire plot was nothing but an excuse to throw all these secondary characters – none of whom go any deeper than having a name – into a story just so they could appear in a story. Books this preachy are NOT my cup of tea. Even so, I feel almost offended by this book, as if it were written for morons. And since I read it, that makes me a moron. The writing – all short, choppy sentences – was maybe at a second-grade level. The characters are completely one-dimensional. The plot is a string of these random one-dimensional characters telling each other stupid, preachy things, over and over again. Verdict: I tried, but I couldn’t find a single redeeming quality about this book, except that I’m sure Palmer put at least a day or two of effort into typing it out. And that is the only reason it even gets a 1/5.

When you read a D.P. book, you get a love story with enough drama and violence to keep the story interesting without a lot of explicit sex scenes. You get the added bonus of visiting some old friends from past books.
