3.0 out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Heroine, Lame Hero 27 April 2011
By P. Romance - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
John Callister needed a secretary. In steps Kasie Mayfield. But it was his older brother, Gil Callister, doing the interviewing. Even though there was something he didn't like about her, Gil chose her right away by the conservative way she dressed. Trying to keep her separate from his family was difficult as his little girls fell in love with her. And so was he.

Being a Diana Palmer romance, there are some themes that readers have come to expect. The heroine was an innocent, who dressed like a prude even in this day and age. But I did like Kasie Mayfield, despite her lack of style. In comparison to most of Palmer's heroines, she was educated with a pretty feisty attitude, tempered by patience. Despite the adversarial attitude of Gil's current secretary and the hero himself, she handled the situations with aplomb and dignity. On the other hand, Gil was your typical Diana Palmer' hero: contradictory. He was always thinking worse of the heroine and never understood why everyone else seemed to loved her. Pretty narrow minded and not always aware of what's going on in his own home. And when it came time for the groveling scene, this was not Palmer's best. I would not have gone back to him even for his children's sake. The man did not deserve sympathy for believing second-hand information. He never even taken the time to actually talk to the heroine in the first place, before passing judgment. He was his own worst enemy.

Despite the less than stellar hero, I found this story a breeze to get through. The story was well-paced with events to keep it appealing. The dialogue was pretty witty in parts. I love all the side characters. All in all, it was a decent read in comparison to her latest writings. This is a pretty clean romance. However, if you missed this book the first time around like I did, it was worth getting it. But if you are looking for something different from Palmer's usual, please skip this reprint.

Back of the book; Sparks flew the moment Kasie Mayfield arrived at Gil Callister's sprawling Montana ranch to temporarily care for his to adorable daughters.
Yet never in her wildest dreams did the innocent young woman imagine that her formidable new boss would sweep her off her feet with his potent charm. Before long she was in love so deeply that it made her heart ache. But how did he feel? The enigmatic rancher was so difficult to read. Still she couldn't imagine spending her days-or nights-with anyone else, but Gil. Could Kasie convince the hard-edged widower that a circle of gold ...belonged on her finger?

2.0 out of 5 stars Lackluster hero. Orig.Published in 2000, dated characters/story 17 Jan 2014
By Hope this helps - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Note: Predictable, old fashioned PG-rated romance with a slight religious undertone

EASY READ. Sweet, homegrown heroine, appealing storyline, and well developed supporting cast. There ARE witty and engaging moments in the book, HOWEVER, the characters and story are dated, the dialogue stilted, and the rich, overbearing, suspicious, male chauvinist hero really detracts from the story.

THE STORY follows reserved, occasionally sassy and confrontational, Kasie Mayfield, hired as a live-in admin assistant to rancher, Gil Callister, marketing genius/ranch manager, and his two adorable girls. There is a romance in there somewhere, but it is hard to find because the erratic hero can't seem to make up his mind -- he hates her, he wants her, he's angry, he makes a pass, he accuses her of neglect, he's hot for her, etc. It is difficult to feel the love.

OVERALL, a quick read, but predicable to the point of boring. My advice, skip it and try one of D. Palmer's other books instead.

You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, A. Stuart, L. L. Miller, R. C. Ryan, or L. Wilde. For sweet, funny, romances with great descriptive imagery and heart touching angst, try Susan Fox, Cara Colter, and E. Palfrey.

2.0 out of 5 stars kinda boring but not awful -- 2.5 1 Sep 2011
By RomReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Conservative & efficient office assistant can't help but be drawn to the cute & motherless young daughters of her boss' domineering brother. Hero forbids her from playing nanny to them even though his daughters often seek her out. He's suspicious of any attractive woman getting close to use daughters due to a recent nanny who used his daughters to try to get him to marry her. He prefers that heroine strictly stick to her busy office work including teaching his own beautiful but disorganized secretary how to use the computer. Yet he makes several passes at heroine & confuses her about his intentions towards her. She continues to work for him & eventually takes charge of caring for his daughters until his secretary blames an incident with his daughters on her. Will Hero learn to trust her?

I try to stay away from Palmer books but I gave this one a try & was I disappointed. Again. It wasn't awful but it was just a step above it. This heroine is like most of Palmer's heroine: young & a doormat. Hero on this one is also a standard Palmer Hero: domineering/cruel/more than 10 years older than heroine. Overall emotional tone was tepid. I was a bit bored while reading it & I didn't care for the characters. There was some drama with heroine being unsure if Hero's still in love with his dead wife or if his secretary will win his affections. Yet it wasn't poignant or touching. It felt heartless & abusive probably b/c of how the characters acted. Sexual chemistry was inconsistent. I wasn't sure if Hero's sexual play with her was b/c he was truly attracted to her of if he was playing mind games with her. Sex scenes were generalized & occurred only at the end.

Minimally recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet and endearing story 10 Nov 2004
By Love 2 Read Novels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The previous reviewer did a wonderful job in describing the book so I will only add that I really enjoyed this very sweet romance. It's a very easy read and you won't be sorry you took the time. If you can't find this book itself...it now is in her book entitled "The Men of Medicine Ridge" which has this story and also "The wedding in White". Trust me...this is a keeper. You will enjoy the characters and walk away light hearted.
