Fiction. Romance. HTML:

An innocent Texan beauty teaches a wealthy, cold-hearted rancher how to love in this classic romance by a New York Times??bestselling author.
While he's very rich and very handsome, Colter Langston is not a good or kind man. But he understands that his young daughter, Missy, needs a mother. At the San Antonio Fiesta Parade he runs into a gentle, hazel-eyed beauty who would fit the bill nicely??much better than his current lover, the wild and hot Deirdre.
Barely out of her teens, Natalie Crane is overwhelmed by the breathtaking rancher who controls the vast Langston holdings in Texas hill country. When he asks her to marry him, Natalie agrees; beneath Colter's cold, cruel exterior she can sense a beating heart that yearns to love.
But sexy Deirdre's not about to give her man up without a fight . . .
With 300 million books sold, New York Times bestseller Janet Dailey is an icon of American fiction. A master of heart-soaring romance, she tells the enchanting story of two damaged people forever changed and a family born from an unexpected love as big as Texas

Old Skool in all the worst ways. Emotionally distant, rape-y "hero"? Door mat "heroine"? Actual rape? Check, check, check. Nope, nope, nope.

I mean, it was published in the 70's so it is actually Old Skool, but still, pretty gross. ( )

So just reread this book again. This guy is the epitome of Gamma hero. Whatever is beyond an asshaty controlling jerk is what this guy is. Why do I like this thing? Still I continue to reread it. ;-)


Originally published in 1977, the hero wears leisure suits. You have to just overlook that part. ;-) He is a cold heartless bastard who only comes to realize he loves the heroine late in the book. He does basically rape the heroine on their wedding night when she refuses him. But I just consider the time it was written and read in with the same grain of salt I do all HPs. The same as I do the modern Italian billionaire stories. But if rape scenes offend you, you might not like it. He loves the heroine at the end and is willing to give her up if that will make her happy. He is just a man who has always been a loner and never knew how to love but loving the heroine breaks him out of that shell. She is a naive young girl but she does typically stand up for herself. I have read it many times but I've just reread it for the first time in probably 20 years and I was just as drawn in and riveted as when I read it in 1977. ( )
