It has been awhile since I have read a story about Jacobsville, Texas. A lot of tough guys live and work there. The description of the book is misleading for me. Or maybe it went over my head and I missed that part. It has happened to me before. There are a few love scenes towards the end of the book. Lots of drama and some action. Some interesting characters. Some good, some bad and some really bad guys. And one big iguana. Sheriff is home on his ranch when he is shot. He never saw the shooter, but he had his phone and was able to call 911. When he woke up the doctor told him it would be awhile for him to heal from this bullet injury. He could not stay home alone and they could not get anyone to stay with him because of Andy. His six foot iguana that hated females. Hayes has no relatives, his housekeeper is out of town nursing his sick sister. He has one choice and he is not going to like it. Minette Raynor is raising her little brother and sister. She also lives with her Aunt. Minette runs a newspaper and Hayes hates her. Hayes blames her for his brother dying of drugs during high school. She has never touched drugs or partied. She never gave drugs to his brother. She offered to let Hayes stay with her family and recuperate on her ranch. Hayes knows a secret about Minette that he promised his father that he would not tell anyone about it. It was not anything that Minette did but it is why he blames her for his younger brothers death. Now that secret would be coming out and would be dangerous for Minette and her family it could also save her family. Minette and her Aunt are good cooks and Hayes loves to eat there cooking and it softens his attitude towards Minette. He also realizes that it was not her fault for his brother's death, She is a good mother to her younger sister and brother. Who are cute and like to be with Hayes. There is a new drug lord from Mexico that is moving into Jacobsville. He is not wanted in the U.S. any of his illegal businesses are done in Mexico. He has lots of enemies and brings danger with him. If you are a fan of Diana Palmer's you will enjoy reading Protector. I look forward to seeing what happens next in Jacobsville it is getting interesting there. I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when finished reading by Netgalley. 06/25/2013 PUB Harlequin HQN ISBN9780373777716

I'm a long time fan of Diana Palmer, but I'm not paying $11.99 for a 384 page Nook book. What are her publishers thinking?

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING. BORING IN FACT. I have been a huge Diana Palmer fan and have waited for a long time for a story about Hayes Carson. I'd rather still be waiting. Enough with the drug lords, and kidnappings. Pretty soon every character ever created is going to have been kidnapped and rescured. This is getting dull and is totally unrealistic. There was almost nothing about Hayes and Minette, nothing about how he overcame his dislike of her. Just bam, they were in love and kidnapped. Please. A very great disappointment and poor treatment of a favorite character. Please please drop the dugs and kidnappings - way overdone!

I have been waiting for this story for years....what a letdown! I cannot believe this ismy DianaPalmer who has written these last few books. Where is the romance, the courtship, the believability. And really, $11.00!!!! So disappointed.....

This is my least favorite book. I mean did she have to mention every character shes written about in past books. Geez it was the cheesiest! I normally love her books but this was a waste of 11 bucks.

I liked the story very much. However, I would like to point out a mistake on page 41. Palmer makes mention of a character from previous books named Keely. She refers to her as Keely York as her married name, but Keely married Boone Sinclair. She also miss spelled Keely's maiden name.

While i love Diana Palmer books and am a big fan of hers, this book was a letdown. There was way too much druglord action and not enough tension and romance between Hayes and Minette. Within days they were in love and all was forgiven, what?? Not worth the $11.00 i spent on BN but then again, when it comes to Diana Palmer i will always buy her books, good or bad. Hopefully her next book will better.

How can t;he publisher say "New Release" on this book.   I read it before the e-book  units even came out.  I read it paperback back in 2005 or 2006. Seems to me that they should say "Re-Print" !   I can remember most of the books story, and I enjoyed .  I also read everyone of the  Jacobsville series.  I wish she would have continued with the series, there are o many characters, that a few more books could be done.

I am about half way through this book. I will try to force myself to finish it, but it will be difficult. It is so hard to believe. Hayes has hated her for so long and now all of a sudden he realizes it it not her fault. Come on. Totally out in left field. Plot is so simple I could probably do better. If I find it better as I go along, I will let you know.

I was very disappointed after pre-ordering this book to realize I already owned it on my Nook. A book should not be a pre-order if it is not a new book!

My first book by Diana Palmer and it was just ok. I couldn't really feel a connection between the characters. Parts of the story was very unrealistic. Minette's drug lord father is an example. Hayes had treated her terribly for years but that was glossed over as nothing. He should have had to grovel. The book had some interesting parts but was mostly dull.

But i agree that there have been enough drug lord stuff in jacobsville time to get back to the romance that was once there. There are lots of plots that can be written about the rest of the people that are in jacobsville. A murder or two men fighting over the same woman. Dianna can do it i know she can.
