Jason is crazy about Gracie and I'm happy he didn't betray her by sleeping with his wacko fiance. All in all this was a good read. He had!

The evil OW was priceless. I love animals, but I can't stop giggling over her master plan to have the h's elderly cat, Mumbles, euthanized. He'd just gotten out of the vet hospital for a kidney infection! Yeah, he scratches the furniture, but this is friggin Mumbles we're talking about here.
Jason gave her to Gracie when she was orphaned, doesn't that mean anything? Maybe the OW was just angry at her parents for naming her Kitty. Don't worry, both Mumbles and Gracie along with the other misfits from Jason's mansion were sheltered by good ole Barbara from the diner. Of course that didn't stop Gracie from being kidnapped and held for ransom by a deposed S American dictator.
He was a swell guy though. Just ask any of the secret Feds hiding out in Jacobsville. View all 9 comments. Apr 07, Vintage rated it liked it Shelves: Boy howdy.

Re-read in January Mar 05, jenjn79 rated it really liked it Recommended to jenjn79 by: I probably sound a little bit like a broken record every time I review a Diana Palmer book, but the sentiment stands true: It's got all her forumlaic mainstays.
Still, I rather enjoyed this story. Series note , though this book isn't officially part of a series, it is set in the fictional Jacobsville, TX area, where many of Palmer's books take place. Including the popular Long, Tall Texans series. This book can be read as a stand-alone, though. Gracie Marsh grew I probably sound a little bit like a broken record every time I review a Diana Palmer book, but the sentiment stands true: Gracie Marsh grew up rough.
Her family was dirt poor and her father was essentially a sexual sadist. He used and abused her mother terribly, and Gracie's Mom made sure her daughter understood that all men wanted was to humiliate and hurt women in bed. She warned Gracie never to marry or get involved with men.
And after a terrible event that ended in her father's death, Gracie had no reason not to believe her mother. When her mom remarried to Myron Pendleton, his son Jason came into her life. Gracie kept away from him, but slowly Jason won her trust.
Over the years, their friendship grew, but then Gracie began to see him as more than a step-brother and friend. She had feelings like a woman would have. But Gracie believed she would never be able to have a relationship with a man. Sex terrified her. What Gracie didn't know was that Jason wanted her as well.
And one night things get close and Jason's feelings are revealed. Gracie is terrified and pushes him away. Feeling rejected, Jason leaves town and manages to find the best way possible to get back at Gracie From that moment on, Gracie's life turns upside down. She loses her home, she has to learn to stand on her own, and then she's kidnapped.
Jason comes to her rescue, but they'll have a lot to work out if they want to build a relationship. If you read that summary, you can probably see that this book fits right in line with a typical Palmer book. In certain ways, I almost felt like it took bits and pieces of other Palmer books and slapped together in a new one. But otherwise, it's got all her usual stuff: Plus it got other staples of hers Every Palmer book has those too. It's kind of silly if you think too much about it.
So I try not to. This book reminded me a bit of her book Lawless in certain ways, but the hero wasn't quite as much a jerk in the middle of the book. He's still an idiot, but just not a total lost cause.
I liked Gracie, though. She's not very wordly, and rather sheltered, but she had some spunk hidden inside. I liked how strong she was in dealing with everything she went through in the book. She could have easily been a spineless, weepy heroine, but instead she picked herself up and moved on. I enjoyed that. The romance was fairly good, angsty yet sensual. And the whole thing with the kidnappings gives the book some variation.
Actually, I thought the whole deal with the kidnappings and the character involved in that was rather interesting. I'm hoping Palmer keeps going with that storyline. All in all, though, this is like any other Palmer book. Which is a bad thing and a good thing. For those of you who are Palmer fans, then I think its safe to say you'll probably like this one. As much as her books and her writing formula annoys me at times, there's something that just keeps yanking me back to read more.

They are not technically related but they grew up together. He adores her as well but he doesn't know how to make her see how much he loves her. Gracie is a very sheltered young woman and scared of intimacy. When Jason makes a move on her she rejects him. He feels hurt and rejected.
He gets engaged to a shrew, Gracie leaves his house, becomes a teacher, Jason realizes his fiance is a bitch but it might be a little too late. Super romantic story. Jason is Gracie has always loved her step-brother. Jason is crazy about Gracie and I'm happy he didn't betray her by sleeping with his wacko fiance.
Gracie is a typical Diana Palmer heroine, a genuine sweetheart who wins everyone over with her warmth and strength. A great read! View all 5 comments. I finished 2 chapters and felt like I needed to take a shower in bleach. When you grow up as brother and sister there should be no romance. But really - There should be no romance between a wealthy cowboy and his mentally retarded step sister. I don't care if there is some unknown reason for her mental retardation - that is the result of whatever unknown thing happened in her past later in the book.
You don't tell your sister step or otherwise to just lay back and think of England. You don't ask I finished 2 chapters and felt like I needed to take a shower in bleach.
You don't ask your brother what you should wear. What should I wear Jason? How should I do my hair Jason? Should I wipe with my right or my left hand Jason? I was just expanding based on what I did read - it could be in there somewhere. Shame on you Diana Palmer for such a creepy book. And I read the reviews on amazon Did you secretly lust after your your step-brother? Perhaps a cousin?
Or even your actual brother. And also shame on you for trying to convince us that Gracie isn't mentally retarded and that she is even any where near ready for the mental portion of a sexual relationship. Jan 03, Lynsey A rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Any Diana Palmer fans. At the times he was a jerk he was kicking himself for the way he was acting so that helped.
It was a typical DP read with the innocent, virginal heroine but Gracie really had some backbone on her and wasn't afraid to stand up to Jason. There were some references to some problems she had due to an incident in her past but it wasn't played on very much in the book, in so much that readers forget there is a problem and wonder why it was even mentioned.
A very interesting character was introduced in this book, Emilio Machado, someone who I know we will see a book about, hopefully in the near future. At the time he was introduced I wanted, however briefly, for Gracie to end up with him. This was during Jason's jerk moments but that was quickly resolved and readers will understand why.
All in all this was a good read. I believe that Diana Palmer fans will like this book. Heartless 1 Star Synopsis: Gracie Marsh worshipped her stepbrother Jason while growing up but now her feelings for him have evolved into something more intense. The feeling seems to be mutual but Gracie has a secret that makes her deathly afraid of love.
Stung by her rejection, Jason leaves and sets in motion events that may change their lives forever. OK, here goes my first and, hopefully, my last really negative review. This book is awful but it is not the borderline incest that turned me Heartless 1 Star Synopsis: This book is awful but it is not the borderline incest that turned me off. Rather the characters are one dimensional and vapid, and the story is ridiculous.
There is an inconsistency between her supposed mental deficiencies and her obvious social skills. Also, she becomes a teacher even though she apparently has a severe learning disability — weird. In addition, she is a perfectly sweet doormat and for too accepting of Jason's rejection and snide attitude. Her reason for keeping her past secret from Jason is also inexplicable — there is nothing shameful about it, and depicting it as such belittles women who have suffered from abuse.
First, her bitchiness is way overdone and is obviously meant to contrast against Gracie's almost angelic status. Jason is an obnoxious hero and borderline abusive. The scene in which he sets up an employee to be humiliated is a case in point as is his allowing Kittie to treat his family so badly.
The preposterous kidnapping subplots only add insult to injury. An honorable, sensitive kidnapper who just happens to be trying to save his country from a dictator and needs to kidnap people to fund his coup? The fact that there is not one, but two kidnappings? Perhaps this is an allowance for gender equality as there is one for the heroine and one for the hero? This is definitely my first and only Diana Palmer book. Jun 21, Cheesecake rated it really liked it Shelves: Gracie and Jason.
Jason is a super wealthy guy and Gracie is the daughter of his father's second wife. He finally gives in to his passion for her but she runs off scared. She has some skeletons in the closet that he doesn't know about. He gets his nose bent out of shape by her apparent rejection and runs off only to come back with a fiance in tow. A super snotty evil Fiancee of course. Grace who had been hoping to talk to him and explain her reaction is now forever silenced by the evil OW betw Gracie and Jason.
Grace who had been hoping to talk to him and explain her reaction is now forever silenced by the evil OW between them. In one reckless action of jealous vindictiveness, Jason has ruined it all. When Jason returns it is to find his house remodeled, his staff fired and replaced with snooty good looking younger types and no sign of Grace or her fat cat. Throw in a benevolent south american dictator and his kidnapping cohorts, and you have a pretty crazy book.
It's not really 4 stars, but I enjoyed it and Jason was heartily remorseful and grovelled well ; Lots of cameos from other DP Heroes. I did find it odd how out of character Jason acted when the OW was around. But I guess it cranks up the angst. For those who hate OW stuff view spoiler [ he never slept with her and I don't think he even kissed her hide spoiler ].
Oct 15, Addie rated it it was ok Shelves: Other reviews sum up why this is so awful. I have no clue how this is rated as highly as it is. Gracie and Jason are my babies. I seldom find a hero whose in love with the heroine from the beginning, either the heroes fight their feelings or just aren't in love—but this one, ohhhh!! This book is a gem. I loved it so much.
A stress reliever at its best, the writer flawlessly finished the trope she selected. Lalalaloooveeed it. He is talking about some bread and cinnamon to eat.
Fucking bastard. He brings this ow at his home, who is a disgusting woman. She insults all his servants and the h. Why the hell did I waste my time on such disgusting books. H is not man enough, coward worst asshole bastard disgusting piece of shit hero in the lifetime of romance book. If you are a safety lover like me then throw this book away right now. He kept her around gave her his money for nearly a year. Really enjoyable older style romantic read with a few twists and turns and a touch of suspense.

To view it, click here. What first surprised me about this book is that it took place around because it reminded me so much of a 's story that I had to keep checking back to the publication date. The fact the hero and heroine had cell phones still didn't convince me. I know that Diana Palmer has published a gazillion books but I really don't get it.
Not that she's a bad writer, but the storyline had me scratching my head so many times I think I have a bald spot. The heroine was pure and good and a bit of a clu What first surprised me about this book is that it took place around because it reminded me so much of a 's story that I had to keep checking back to the publication date.
The heroine was pure and good and a bit of a clutzy ditz with an explanation why with a tragic past that she hides from the hero, her step-brother and cliche man who's a bazillonaire who prefers to be out on the range with his cattle instead of in international boardrooms making his bazillions.
He's had a thing for her, she's had a thing for him, but her momma told her that sex was evil.
Men having sex were evil animals, so she was always scared to death of her attraction to her step brother. Her fear makes our hero go off and get involved with a cliche of a gold-digging model who kicks our heroine out of her home along with all the servants who are more like family members. Anyway, without going into more details about this painful story, there are not just one, but two kidnappings our kidnapper is a good man who is just trying to get enough money to take back his country our heroine who's heart bleeds when the icky man who's trying to rape and kill her is killed himself, and, my favorite, is the use of the word BONZER to describe the Christmas party at the end of the story.
I really should have thrown the book across the room several times. But I must be a glutton for punishment because I read the whole dang thing. That won't be happening again.
Aku suka buku tante Diana Palmer satu ini. Berbeda dengan Harlequin DP yang biasanya tipis, kali ini agak tebal dengan alur yang lebih panjang tapi tentunya menarik: Gracie adalah saudara tiri dari Jason. Masa lalunya berusaha ditutup oleh ibunya ketika menikah dengan ayah Jason dengan mengatakan Gracie bukanlah anaknya.
Masa lalu yang membuatnya seperti saat ini.
Jason sudah dari dua tahun lalu tertarik pada Gracie, namun sepertinya wanita itu tak menyadarinya. Ia berharap Gracie melihatnya seb Aku suka buku tante Diana Palmer satu ini. Ia berharap Gracie melihatnya sebagai pria, bukan sebagai kakak laki-laki.
Sampai pada suatu pesta yang mereka adakan, ketertarikan itu muncul di permukaan. Dan ketika sebuah ciuman mengingatkan Gracie akan masa lalunya, ia menolak Jason. Takut pada apa yang akan terjadi berikutnya. Jason yang kesal karena ditolak oleh Gracie melarikan diri dan dalam keadaan hangover, dia terbangun di samping tubuh seorang wanita Di lain pihak, Gracie merasa bersalah.
Ketika dia ingin minta maaf kepada Jason, pria itu membawa wanita lain. Dan ketika Gracie berusaha menata hidupnya kembali, dia diculik dan yang dapat menyelamatkannya hanya Jason. Aku suka baca cerita DP kalau cowoknya jatuh cinta duluan, posesif duluan sama ceweknya walaupun ceweknya sebenarnya sudah suka namun masih ragu. Ceritanya lebih menarik soalnya. Kali ini ceritanya bukan di Jacobsville, tapi tetap dekat-dekat sana sih.
Masih ada unsur ranch dan ranger. Jelas ada action di Heartless yang menurutku sedikit lucu dan bikin trenyuh juga. Berharap kepala penculiknya Gracie menemukan wanita yang cocok untuknya: Twist di cerita ini yang jelas gak bosenin dan muncul di bagian-bagian yang tepat.
Masa lalu Gracie dan masa lalu Jason. Jul 30, Grace rated it did not like it. Gracie and Jason combined had the emotional intelligence of a twelve year old. How Jason was able to run a business was beyond me. Oh don't mind the boss Get a grip Jason. There were three huge obnoxious things about Gracie that don't and will never make sense: Is this the 's? Then no one cares.
When you are trying to romance your step brother Her aversion to sex was because her father bit her mother's breasts all the time. She was brought up believing that men will bite your breasts so hard and so frequently that you will be covered in blood.
This is what sex is like. What time period is this book? Oh right, it's now. We're supposed to believe this woman managed to get a college degree but always firmly believed a man will gnaw off your nipples if you bang him. The truly bizarre interlude when she is kidnapped renders Gracie into Wendy from Peter Pan. She is singing songs to poor little orphans and gets along great with her captor. What is so magical about her?
How can she barely keep her shit together when Jason tries to pick her up but somehow can laugh and banter with her kidnapper? She is truly an enigma.
Now, besides all that. The worst crime of this novel is Kittie. Kittie the Hitler of all supermodels. She was so over the top and so ridiculously evil that I couldn't take it. Kittie is hands down the worst "other woman" character written I have ever come across. I'm actually surprised the book didn't go the Fatal Attraction route. That would have been infinitely more entertaining. If you want to read a book that respects your intellect Gracie came to live in the Pendleton mansion as a teenager after her mother's marriage to Myron Pendleton.
Jason Pendleton took special care of his stepsister, especially following her mother's death. Now, both of them are struggling with deeper, romantic feelings for each other and Gracie is grappling with fears from her secret past that create barriers to forging any intimacy with men.
I struggled with the author's attempt at defining these characters. In the same paragraph, Gracie talks about Gracie came to live in the Pendleton mansion as a teenager after her mother's marriage to Myron Pendleton. In the same paragraph, Gracie talks about movers and shakers being attracted to Jason because he is so dynamic but next she describes him as an introvert.
Gracie herself is supposed to have a brain injury that limits her but she is extraordinary at mastering planning events on behalf of Jason that would level the best of us. These contradictions persisted throughout.
This was a simple, romantic story but too simplistic for my taste. Jason's reaction to Grace's initial retreat from him was pretty dramatic and his relationship with Kittie stretched the imagination. It was hard to not dislike him based on his knee-jerk reactions to fairly minor issues. Both seemed emotionally immature. The story kept my interest so it wasn't hard to continue reading the book and it's a pretty quick read. There are some interesting story lines beyond the romance of Gracie and Jason.
You learn quite a bit about ranching and its culture, which I thought was a good thing. Secondary characters aren't expanded on in great detail but add some flavor.
Gracie and Jason have some sizzling moments even though theirs isn't the great romantic tale. There was some action kidnapping, drug cartels, etc , a few funny moments Jason's rebound woman , romance of course, and overall the characters were easy to follow.
There were definitely characters you'd love life long maid and others you'd hate Jason's rebound woman here again. In a nutshell, this would make for a perfectly amusing and long stretched out plot for Dallas or such late night TV soap opera.
So if you're into that sort 2. So if you're into that sort of thing, this is your book! Of course my hang-up was this romantic relationship between half siblings, Jason and Gracie see, classic soap opera. They grew up together as siblings and for things to develop into something erotic was disturbing.
Thanks for my forgetfulness skills, I survived this read because I selectively forgot that they were related. Oh the powers of this wannabe Wonder Woman!

This was an actual reread, not sure why I seem to forget which books of Diana Palmer but I do. Thank goodness for GR so I can cross them off my list. This was actually one of my favorite Diana Palmer books, Jason was a jerk at times but you knew from the beginning his feelings for Gracie. Although he makes an ass out of himself, it is not as bad as some of her heros and it is forgivable. A great read. This one is just an okay read. By that I mean the story is very, very, predictable.
The "suspense" is not suspenseful at all, although interesting. The issues and dangers that these people seem to face were either worked out way too quickly, or the outcomes were way too easy or convenient to be believable. The love scenes were bleh or luke warm at best. And the leading lady just seemed too "simple" IMO. The over usage of explanation marks! But there were strong characters in this story.
Especially the lead male as well as the supporting characters. Now the wealthy owner of Comanche Wells ranch, Jason has finally come back home and discovered that the little girl he knew is all grown up. In a moment of unbridled passion, Jason realizes that he's falling for Gracie.
But Gracie harbors a shameful secret that makes her deeply afraid to love. Stung by her rejection, Jason leaves, ready to put the past--and the one woman he can't have--behind him once more. Gracie thinks she's lost Jason forever. But when danger threatens her she can only hope that her long, tall Texan will come blazing home to save her.
