5.0 out of 5 stars Betrayed by Love 3 April 2008
A great story - one where the characters fair bounce of the page & bite you. You can feel the sizzle and tension between the lead characters & the hero is a whole hunk of man. For those trying to build up a DP library & avoid duplicates hero is Jacob Cade & heroine is Kathryn (Kate) Walker. Based in South Dakota. Happy reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Close, but not quite 6 Nov 2006
By Krystal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is very close to being one of the best...but not quite. The usual story abou the older, untameable rancher and the young, naive girl. Jacob is rugged, but the fact that he took Kate's passion without even thinking about consequences or the exact status of Kate, makes him seem very selfish at the beginning.

It's understandable that everyone misjudges from time to time, but his stubborn mind about Kate being a woman with "loose" morals just makes him immature. Just because he could not seduce her before, he finds it easy to just take her whenever he wanted. Kate loves him and gives him what he wants just so that she could have one memory to hang on to, but it turns out to be a "horrible" experience.

The rest of the book makes up for this incident, when Jacob treats Kate with kindness, while waiting for her to forgive him. Kate at the end is also very stubborn and it starts to get annoying because she doesnt see whats right in front of her. Overall this book has its ups and downs but it turns out to be a nice story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Misconceptions 21 Dec 1999
By "alessa9" - Published on Amazon.com
Jacob Cade had strong opinions about which women were off-limits and which weren't. Kate Walker belonged in the second category--hadn't he once thrown her off his ranch for misbehaving? He'd never stopped wanting her, though, and it was time to make his move. Kate had been in love with Jacob since childhood. Unbeknownst to him, she wasn't the king of woman who took love lightly. Now Jacob was back in her life, but she didn't dare tell him the truth. Kate risked everything just being with Jacob. Her gamble almost ended in disaster--until Jacob decided to take some risks of his own!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 2 Dec 2009
By CES - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a great DP book! I have been so disappointed with her recent books that I decided to buy an older one. I am so glad I did. You could really feel the characters pain, self-doubts, and passion. It's great when one of DP's grouchy heroes realizes what he has been like and truly shows remorse. I finished it in just a few hours. I couldn't put it down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two For the Price of One..... 18 Oct 2012
By terrylynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Betrayed by Love is a combination of two stories, one written in 1987 by Diana Palmer and the other more recently by Kathie DeNosky written in 2011 and entitled, The Rough and Ready Rancher.

Betrayed by Love is the story of a young girl, Kate Walker, who has grown up with a serious crush on her best friend's uncle. Now 24 and living on her own in Chicago, Kate returns for her friend's wedding and sees Jacob again for the first time in 6 years. One look confirms that she still isn't over him but what she doesn't realize is that Jacob is taking a second look himself and realizes that his niece's best friend is all grown up. Unfortunately, due to a misunderstanding when she was 16, Jacob thinks Kate is more worldly and more experienced than she really is, when in fact the opposite is true. So when Jacob shows up in Chicago to take her to dinner, he mistakes the genuine love she feels for him as an invitation to bed her and the results are devastating for Kate. When Jacob returns to Chicago and talks with Kate's brother, he realizes his terrible mistake and before he can make things right with her, she is seriously injured in her job and suddenly he understands that he has had feelings for her all along. But Kate doesn't want anything to do with him, so Jacob has a long road ahead of him to convince her that he is worthy of the feelings she used to have for him.

This is a typical love story about innocence betrayed and a love finally found only to realize it might be too late. I gave this one 3 stars because it is a little dated and because Jacob is so cruel in the beginning, it's hard to feel anything but disgust for him, even if he makes up for it in the end. And Kate's love for Jacob seemed a little obsessive to me (pictures all around her apartment and on her desk at work) even though she hadn't seen or spoken to him for 6 years. It's not bad, just nothing special and a little irritating in spots.

Actually, I enjoyed the Rough and Ready Rancher better. This story involves a gifted horse trainer by the name of JJ Adams and when tough guy Flint McCray hires her, he has no idea that J stands for Jenna. He isn't happy about it, but is bound by the contract to let her stay. Plus, he is caught up with the problems on his ranch and is concerned for the safety of his men and his 4 year old son. As someone continues to cause incidents on the ranch, Flint realizes that Jenna is indeed gifted, not only in training horses, but in dealing with his son and he soon begins to have feelings for her that go way beyond what he expected. Although Jenna cares for Flint and his son and has always dreamed of a place to belong, she is still scarred by the memories of the deaths of her father and fiance in the horse arena. Can Flint find out who is sabotaging things on his ranch and convince Jenna to give him a chance? Western romance, puppies, a cute little boy and a kind hearted horse trainer makes for a great love story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit from Diana Palmer 1 July 2010
By Kitty Kat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I discovered Diana Palmer books some years ago and am diligently buying all I can find and this story like all her others is well scripted, has a sympathetic story and of course a happy ending.

Diana writes so many about the Jacobsville residents and I feel that the townsfolk are my neighbours.

I am looking forward to her latest book dangerous.
