Palmer once again presents a wonderful romance with a misunderstood heroine and an older alpha hero in her Long, Tall Texan series. It's a pleasure to watch the heroine discover her ability to be independent and the hero learn to let go while still holding onto love.
Gracie March has had feelings for her stepbrother, Jason Pendleton, for years. But she can't give in to them because of her fear of the intimate side of a relationship -- and because of a secret she's afraid to share. When Jason returns home after years away and finally gives in to his own desire for Gracie, only to have her reject him, he ends up engaged to a woman who's only after his money. And his fiancee is determined to change his life by getting rid of his old family retainers -- and Gracie.
Gracie decides it's time to stop being dependent on Jason and stand on her own two feet, move out and get a job -- something Jason discovers he's not sure he wants to happen. (HQN, Jun., 384 pp., $24.95)
