Book review: Wyoming Tough by Diana Palmer
A cowboy through and through, ranch owner Mallory Kirk knows what it means to put in a full day's work. But does his new cowgirl? He has his doubts that Morie Brannt will be able to pull her own weight, even if the petite young woman does seem to have a lot of spirit.
As they spar over events at the ranch and a past that threatens their hopes for the future, sparks begin to fly, and Mallory can't help but notice Morie in a new light. But is this tough Wyoming man ready to love?
I know I've said this many times before but i have a love hate relationship with Diana Palmer books. I hate them for almost the first half or so of the book them i just might love them by the end. lol Happens almost every time. Wyoming Tough is one of the best of Diana Palmer's books that I've read. I kept waiting for that feeling i get where i think the hero is such a jerk and someone should knock some sense in him. I still got that feeling just not to the intensity that i usually do. Morie is rich, way more rich than Mallory big stuff Kirk. Thing is Morie's dad would never teach her the dirty parts to ranching.The other problem is almost all men saw her as a meal ticket to her daddy's wealth. She got the idea that she would leave town ( town being L.A.) and head out to Wyoming and work on a smaller ranch and pretend she was poor and learn what she wanted to and maybe be seen for herself. Mallory Kirk is one of three brothers who own the ranch that Morie ends up working on. All three brothers have had a rough time of it in some way, shape or form. Mallory doesn't think he is very good looking and he's been burned by women before who just wanted him for his money. Like all hero's in Diana Palmer's book Mallory has a attitude. Oh yes he thinks he knows it all of course and he has a girlfriend who is not what she seems and is out for Mallory's money ( imagine that). He is to blind to see this although to everyone else it's pretty plain. At the same time Mallory can't fight his attraction for Morie and it scares him a bit. It all comes to a head when Morie is accused of doing the one thing Mallory can't tolerate and she leaves the ranch broken hearted. Thing take a twist from there when Mallory and his girlfriend show up at Morie's parents house for a big party only to discover who Morie really is. I always enjoy the part when the hero finally gets a clue. I really enjoyed this book. There are some great characters and i love Morie's toughness. She rich so she doesn't have to do anything but she gets right in there and does the work and she's smart and holds her own against everyone. 4 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars for Wyoming Tough by Diana Palmer.
