There’s something about those Wyoming men… New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer returns to the Cowboy State with a brand-new tale of desire and deception

Cultivating his vast Wyoming ranch is all security expert J. C. Calhoun wants. His land is the only thing the betrayed rancher can trust in after discovering his fiancee was pregnant by another man. But all J.C. holds dear becomes compromised when a lost little girl leads him to Colie Jackson, the woman who destroyed his life.

Colie stops at nothing to protect the people she loves. Years ago she left J.C. for his own good. Now, for the sake of her daughter, she must depend on a hard-hearted man who won’t forgive her. As a band of ruthless criminals tracks their every move through the frozen Wyoming winter, Colie and J.C. will be forced to confront the lies that separated them–and the startling truth that will bind them forever…

Excerpt:

J.C. looked incredibly handsome in a shepherd’s coat, jeans and boots, with snow dusting his thick, black, un­covered hair.

“You never wear a hat,” Colie mused, trying not to let her hands tremble as she took the coat to hang up for him. He was so tall that she had to stand on her tiptoes to pull it back off his shoulders.

“I hate hats,” he remarked. He glanced at her as she put the coat on the rack in the hall, his pale gray eyes narrow and appraising on her slender, sexy body. She dressed like a lady, but he knew all about women who put on their best behavior around company. She was just out of school; college, he was certain, because she had to be at least twenty-two or twenty-three. Catelow had several thousand people, and J.C. didn’t mix with them. He only knew what Rodney told him about his sister. And that wasn’t much.

“I noticed,” Colie said as she turned, smiling.

His eyes flickered down to her pert breasts and he fought down a raging hunger that he hadn’t felt in a long time. He had women, but this one stirred him in a dif­ferent way. He couldn’t explain how, exactly. It irritated him and he scowled.

“It wasn’t a complaint,” Colie added quickly, not understanding the scowl.

He shrugged. “No problem. What are we eating?”

“Leftover turkey with cranberry sauce, mashed po­tatoes, salad and apple pie.” She hesitated, insecure. “Is that okay?”

He smiled, his perfect white teeth visible under chis­eled, sensuous lips. “It’s great. I love turkey.” He chuck­led. “I like chicken, too, although I usually get mine in a bucket.”

Her eyes widened. “You put it in a pail, like you milk cows with?” she asked, shocked.

He glowered at her. “There’s this chicken place. They sell you chicken and biscuits and sides…”

She went red as fire. “Oh, gosh, sorry, wasn’t think­ing,” she stammered. “Let’s go in! Daddy’s already at the table.”

Rodney went ahead, but J.C. slid a long finger inside the back of Colie’s sweater and gently stopped her. He moved forward, so that she could feel the heat and power of him at her back in a way that made her heart run wild, her knees shiver. “I was teasing,” he whispered right next to her ear. His lips brushed it.

Her intake of breath was visible. Her whole body felt shaky.

His big hands caught her shoulders and held her there while his lips traveled down the side of her throat in a lazy, whispery caress that caused her to melt inside.

“Do you like movies?” he whispered.

“Well, yes…”

“There’s a new comedy at the theater Saturday. Go with me. We’ll have supper at the fish place on the way.”

She turned, shocked. “You…you want to go out with me?” she asked, her green eyes wide and full of delight.

He smiled slowly. “Yes. I want to go out with you.”

“Saturday?”

He nodded.

“What time?”

“We’ll leave about five.”

“That would be lovely,” she said, drowning in his eyes, on fire with the joy he’d just kindled in her with the un­expected invitation.

“Lovely,” he murmured, but he was looking at her mouth.

BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

** spoiler alert **

Normally if I can’t rate a book a 3 or above I bypass leaving a review but in this case I couldn’t walk away from Wyoming Winter without saying something..

I can’t, I just can’t rate this book….. It so sounded like my kinda read but the blurb and the actual story don’t really match (in my opinion). There were so many things about this book that I didn’t like but to list them would take an eBook of it’s own and pretty much be all spoilers… so I’m gonna just quickly sum up my thoughts

The ‘hero’ JC wasn’t a hero, he was a douchebag who bumped his gal without giving her a chance to explain. For someone who claimed that he knew a lie when he heard it – ‘cos he was in the police force for 2 years when he was younger – he swallowed the biggest bloody lie he’d ever been told (by someone that he knew himself was a barefaced liar) and then he went back for seconds!! Even when the reason behind JCs lack of trust and belief in other people was revealed I couldn’t feel any kind of sympathy for him as his childhood story just seemed way too OTT and unbelievable.

Colie (the MF) just annoyed the ever-loving crap out of me… she did stuff without considering the consequences, didn’t speak up when she should and could have – which would have saved a lot of people a lot of pain…. What happened and how things progressed when she moved away was just WTF???? in fact I have to admit that I found myself saying ‘for f*cks sake’ A LOT when I was reading – and when I say reading, I mean kinda skimming through ‘cos I was losing the will to read – there were just way too many WTF moments for me to deal with – and let’s not forget the so so many repetitive thoughts and/or explanations; some of them read like they were being brought up for the first time when we’d already been given the info/facts more than once. The writing in the chapters jumped about too much for me too, at points we were reading from Colie’s POV and then JC’s but with barely any indication that we had changed character or location.

I didn’t feel any kinda connection between JC and Colie. From what we read, when they were together at the start of the book sex was not good for her and it sounded like whenever they got ti one he was just getting his rocks off and had no concern for her needs or feelings!
The daughter, she’s 2….. but gods, from what she said and did she sounded like she was 22 – when she was talking, full coherent sentences and I just, ugh…. I couldn’t go with what I was reading. I love, love, love to read and more often than not you have to suspend belief and go with things that are a little beyond possibility but this was just too much.

This was my first Diana Palmer read and unfortunately, it will be my last.
