WILL OF STEEL (4.5) by Diana Palmer: Hollister Police Chief Theodore Graves doesn’t have any intention of marrying Jillian Sanders, even if she can cook, until a codicil in their uncles’ wills makes it imperative. Either Jillian and Theodore wed, or the ranch will be turned over to a developer. While the two feel their way toward a relationship, someone is stalking Jillian and will stop at nothing to get to her; even a round-the-clock bodyguard might not be enough. Palmer always gives readers a satisfying tale and visit with old friends.

I have always been a Diana Palmer fan and yes there have been better books that she has written. I love the chemistry between Jillian and Ted but I feel the book could have been developed a little more. Maybe some interaction between Ted and the Villian would have been interesting conciding that he was the Chief and the other man was staying in town. But nonetheless this book is worth reading.

This book just didn't do it!!

I am a major Diana Palmer fan and I really don't know what happened with this book. When I saw it got 4 1/2 stars I was so happy and thinking Oh boy, she writing like she used to. This book was so bad. Both the H/H were just so so, not allot of personilty. I don't understand why she felt she had to keep bringing up Cash, now he is one of my all time favorite Diana Palmer men, but she almost ruined him for me in this book .

This story was just very weak for me. Jillian seamed more like a 15 year old then somebody who was 21, I know she was sheltered by her uncle, but it was a little much. Not sure what to say about Ted, I am just glad he is not my Sheriff!

So if you are a Diana Palmer fan, for me this book really missed the mark. I'll just go back and reread her old ones. Not sure if I will pick up her next one

What can I say I love Diana Palmer books. The heroines are a little naive and this describes Jillian Sanders to a tee. She was raised by a overprotective uncle and has not seen much of the world.

Chief of police Theodore Graves is really a good match for her if she can overcome a trauma that happened when she was fifteen.

It was a nice read with wonderfully described secondary characters and besides Graves only acted unsupportive for a brief time in the story.

I'm a huge Diana Palmer book and I was really looking forward to this book not!! This book was so boring -- neither the hero who was so beta or the wishy washy heroine were likable. In my opinion it was like Diana didn't even write this story. Sorry RT I can't see how you gave this book 4 1/2 stars.
