Overview

From the moment powerfully seductive Rey Hart first set eyes on Meredith Johns, he became mesmerized by the lovely young woman. For not only did Meredith stir his jaded soul with her tempting innocence, he discovered she was a top-notch biscuit maker! However, installing the beleaguered Meredith on the Hart ranch as his coveted cook was a cinch compared to breaking the enchanting spell she had cast over this Long, Tall Texan's heart. Now, the hot-tempered cattleman's plan to preserve his bachelorhood was on the verge of backfiring — big time — because one intoxicating kiss would never be enough to satisfy Rey's intense craving for his mysterious housemate. Against all odds, could their tenuous union survive his stubborn pride — and her perilous past?

I had a hard time really enjoying this story. I was a bit confused at times. Some parts I had to go back and reread. I didn't like that she kept insisting buying him a ring or some sort of off handed remark regarding marriage.

I usually like an old fashioned romance, but this was so old fashioned it was demeaning. What is her obsession with college degrees? The man only respects herbwhen he realizes she has a degree? And a psychologist wouldnt be all impressed that someone shows sone intelligence and then asks them if they have a degree. The entire way through the book I kept getting annoyed by how shallow and condescending the people in this book were. That being said, I read the whole thing and didnt skip any of it or put it down. So there was obviously something I liked.

I loved this story about the very sexy Rey Hart. I can't wait for Leo's story, for which the groundwork was laid in this book. Great story line and very beleivable characters. Miss Palmer has done it again.

An alcoholic father, a chance encounter in a risque costume after a Halloween party, and a mugging - the circumstances under which Meredith Johns meets Rey Hart are ripe for misinterpretation. And he does. But hey, the girl can bake biscuits. Readers will catch on to Meredith's secret long before Rey tumbles to it. It's nice to see one of Palmer's heroines with a bit of spine and a career she gets to keep!

A cute, quick, fun - it is part of the Long Tall Texans series that Diana Palmer has and even though they hint at some of the other brothers stories, don't really see it being necessary to read them all before this one.
