    I only read Tom's story; 3 stars Tom is a financial advisor, and Elysia is a wealthy widow who sells couture fashion. Tom and Elysia new each other 6 years ago when they had a ONS. It did not go well and shortly after Elysia moved away. Now Tom finds that when he moves to Jacobsville, Elysia already lives there too. Awkward coincidence? Hmmmm...

Tom and Elysia new each other 6 years ago when they had a ONS. It did not go well and shortly after Elysia moved away. Now Tom finds that when he moves to Jacobsville, Elysia already lives there too. Awkward coincidence? Hmmmm... They tentatively reacquaint themselves but it doesn't take long for Tom's bad temper to push nasty words out of his mouth. This kinda becomes a habit, his jumping to the wrong conclusions and taking out his unhappiness on her. Of course he learns the truth and also learns that Elysia's little girl looks a lot like him. Now how to convince Elysia to let him into their lives after all the douche bag things he's said to her... It's a straight forward story but with a bit of a twist with their histories. Elysia's brother plays match maker (as well as a few others) when he explains to Elysia about Tom's background. Now this was the part I was like WTF? If her brother new so much, and new about Elysia's daughter, Crissy, then why the F didn't he mention these pertinent deets sooner??? There's a fair bit of convenient verbal regurgitation from side characters to help the MCs bridge the gap. But I still enjoyed it, and he grovels quite nicely. Both MCs were great (especially Elysia and her spine of steel... well aluminum I guess) but the story was too clunky to be more than 3 stars. Safety is surprisingly good (view spoiler)[they were both virgins 6 years ago, and there's been nobody for either since then. Both characters were mentally and physically abused as kids but not sexually. (hide spoiler)]

    Three Novellas Telling The Stories of Former Secondary Characters Each of the three novellas in this anthology tell the stories of secondary characters from other Diana Palmer novels. TOM WALKER is the story of Tom and Elysia Nash. Elysia is a widow with a young daughter who comes back into Tom's life. Tom knew her in New York and the two had a one night stand. Now they meet again. This was a story that was really good but would have been better at a longer length.

TOM WALKER is the story of Tom and Elysia Nash. Elysia is a widow with a young daughter who comes back into Tom's life. Tom knew her in New York and the two had a one night stand. Now they meet again. This was a story that was really good but would have been better at a longer length. Tom's issues were too deep to really be addressed in this short version. The story is connected to BETRAYED BY LOVE. DREW MORRIS tells the story of Dr. Drew Morris and his new receptionist Kitty Carson. Drew is a widower who lost his beloved wife and has no intention of loving again. At the same time, he cannot forget his sweet receptionist. This was my favorite. I thought the story of these two was difficult and complex but also sweet. This novella is connected with COLTRAIN'S PROPOSAL. JOBE DODD is the story of Jobe Dodd and Sandy Regan. Jobe and Sandy fight all the time. Of course, their antagonism masks their intense attraction to one another. I didn't like Sandy in this novella. She seemed stuck up and insulting. The story turned too fast to be satisfying to me. This novella is connected with REGAN'S PRIDE. A LONG, TALL TEXAN SUMMER is the sixteenth book in the Long, Tall Texans series. It can be read as a standalone but there are numerous connections with the characters in these books. I give this book 3.5 stars.

    Tom Walker: 3 stars I liked the book well enough, especially the new plot about Crissie. Diana Palmer usually doesn't have children in her stories. I also liked how the characters just come out and admit their love for each other, without stretching it out too long and DP introducing useless thoughts and insecurites about the characters for each other. It usually doesn't happen, so this story gets points for that.

It would have gotten 4 stars if it wasn't for him. Jode Dodd: 2.5 stars I disliked the way Sandy rubbed her education in Jobe's face, although I loved the end. Once again, I marvel at how easily the male admits his love, no insecurites whatsoever. I also loved the fact that Sandy didn't doubt him even once at Missy's accusation.

    I have not read any of the mini-series and frankly when I discovered it was a set of others I thought, "Why oh why do I keep picking up books that are number 4 or 7 in a series when I haven't read the first lot?" Since this was given to me a long time ago by a friend who was addicted to Mills and Boon romances (her collection ran into the thousands, I kid you not!) I felt I ought to read it. I had just finished Stephen Fry's Moab is my washpot and it was heavy and tedious so a light-hearted read I have not read any of the mini-series and frankly when I discovered it was a set of others I thought, "Why oh why do I keep picking up books that are number 4 or 7 in a series when I haven't read the first lot?" Since this was given to me a long time ago by a friend who was addicted to Mills and Boon romances (her collection ran into the thousands, I kid you not!) I felt I ought to read it. I had just finished Stephen Fry's Moab is my washpot and it was heavy and tedious so a light-hearted read was just what I needed. The stories themselves are all typical, boy meets girl, girl and he hate each other, or similar vein, end up 'realising' they love each other and go off and live happily ever after. In these three stories are connected by the people who know each other but entirely separate from each other. The main commonality seems to be some personal trauma to each character, be it abuse, death or some such, which creates their personality. The fact that the characters seem to all desire marriage and kiddies seems to be the mainstay of most romance novels pumped out by the never ending authors. If this is all romance and love is to those reading them then god help us poor women who believe they don't need a man to be happy! By golly, these stories prove to you you must be married! Ha, no wonder my friend who gave me this book is still single at age 58 and never had a boyfriend, real men would just never measure up to the standards of these written on paper characters! Generally though, it was ok. If the doctor character was real he would be up for abusive behaviour in a workplace. There were more similar things like that but alas, it is a fantasy book to provide women that flutter of the big hero male showing his vulnerabilities. Readable if you like this sort of book.

    This book contained three novellas. Tom, Jobe and Dr. Drew Morris. All three were typical in that they were not very nice to the women in their lives. Tom and Jobe's stories were second chances of sorts and Dr. Drew was a window so in a sense his story was too. I liked all three stories but was left wanting a bit more to their stories.

    3.5/5 Not as terrible as others. The men in this anthology weren't as ridiculous and arrogant as usual, so that was a nice change. 3.5/5 Not as terrible as others. The men in this anthology weren't as ridiculous and arrogant as usual, so that was a nice change.

    Did not finish, Sorry what a load of drivel. Though cowboys were meant to be tough, not such girly crybabies. Got part,way through the first story and couldn't take it anymore.

    Jacobsville Texas had the same elements of small towns elsewhere with a slight difference, strong traditional values upheld to a greater degree and men with hearts difficult to corral. Spending their days working hard, the closed-off hearts of three men in particular were about to be invaded. Tom Walker an investment counselor with a Sioux ancestry encountered a previous one-night lover years later, discovering that one night altered his life in ways he never expected.

Spending their days working hard, the closed-off hearts of three men in particular were about to be invaded. Tom Walker an investment counselor with a Sioux ancestry encountered a previous one-night lover years later, discovering that one night altered his life in ways he never expected. Dr. Drew Morris an overworked family doctor and widower unconsciously bonded with his receptionist on a more personal level while his heart was cemented to his past love. Jobe Dodd a traditional ranch foreman with an ornery temper continued to push the buttons of a woman he watched grow up through the years unaware she became entangled with his heart. “A Long, Tall Texan Summer” was divided into three short stories of six chapters each, uniquely tied together within the same town. Their stories connected well with the fresh tender bloom of first love, trust, communication and a deep bonding.

    This is three different stories: Tom Walker & Elysia Nash: 3 Stars This was a very sweet short story, I think ut could have been a bit longer as everything seemed a bit rushed, but it was still an enjoyable read. Dr Drew Morris & Kitty Carson: 3 Stars Again this was a very cute little story about finding love again. Kitty was DP's typical virgin heroine and Drew was a man who didn't want to fall in love again after his beloved wife had died six years earlier.

    This book had three short stories. i found them all very good. I liked the first two the best. They were all about the trademark virgin and all quite lovely, especially since they were set sometime ago. it wasn't something that was too hard to put down, but if you like DP formular you will love these.

    What we have is a story about three men who are confirmed bachelors in a small town in Texas who meet three women who change their minds. There's plenty of action going on and each storyline has it's own unique situation.

    There were 3 different stories. They were very short with little character development. For the most part, romance novels are very predictable but with the limited amount of time spent on each character it took some of the enjoyment out of it.

    In 2005-2007 I read so many of Diana Palmer's books. My ex's mom had a lot and that got me hooked. She is an excellent author and I just enjoyed them. Especially the rancher, texas, farmer themes plots and stuff. In 2005-2007 I read so many of Diana Palmer's books. My ex's mom had a lot and that got me hooked.

    I liked the romance of Dr Drew Morris and Kitty Carson the best of the three romances. It's typical D.Palmer, the H's so cruel at times it takes your breath away, nothing different there for a DP book. It just seemed that everything was a tad rushed.

    I only read Drew's story because I just finished Coltrain's Proposal. Great read, although I felt Drew was more like a father figure to h at first, they became more as time passed by. h was hurmous,esp the way she made joke with H; I also admired her out-spoken.
