New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Diana Palmer is back in Wyoming with a tale of love born in Big Sky Country....
Billionaire oilman Blair Coleman has always taken care of his business. After having been used and cast aside by a woman he thought he loved, his personal life is far from his first priority. He knows only one has ever truly cared for him - but the irresistible blonde beauty is the daughter of his best friend.
Niki Ashton has seen her father's friend wounded, and she's seen him fight. Blair is the strongest - and most stubborn - man she's ever known. That very heart and passion makes him the man of her dreams, but whenever they've been in danger of getting close, Blair has always pushed her away.
It takes a possible tragedy to strip away all of Blair's misgivings. Now it's all or nothing: marriage, baby, family, forever. But will the choice be too much for Niki...or too late?

This book is a stand alone title in the series and is very much in the DP method of writing. While a couple of aspects of the male character is a bit weird, he is a typical male lead of the DP world. This is an easy read/listen that takes place over several years but this does not distract from the overall feel of the story, as the female lead grows up and matures you can see how her attitude changes in many aspects. One of the secondary characters got me shouting at my Hudl as he is so obnoxious that he gets what he deserves in the end. Add in some scheming women who try to keep Nicki and Blair apart and you have an enjoyable read. When Nicki has a major medical issue some may not get her attitude but as someone who has had to face the same issue I can understand why she did what she did. Enjoy.
Once again Mr Eargasmic turns this into a voyeuristic experience at times, he has done several DP books now and always brings the book to life with a vengeance! His ability to do the voices helps to create a visual image of each character and also create the atmosphere of the moment.
Some may find this weird at times but it is very much in the same vein as many of DP's previous books so enjoy!
I think the books plot was good. The character of Nicky was not believable. I don't think any young lady of our time period could have been so naive about everything. Also there were to many inmate scene after which she was supposed to still be totally clueless about sex. I think that this character should have been made to appear like the young adult she is and not a child. Also the character of Blaire needs a lot of tweaking as well.
Wyoming Rugged was simply amazing, keep me on my tippy toes on to what was going to happen next. Didn't want to stop listening to it! I am ready for a sequel!
I didn't like that he was looking for a woman that look like his mother. It feels weird every time that it was mention thru the story. It made me thing of Bates Motel lolol. Overall it was an Ok story...It didn't have that much plot.
"Couldn't even finish this one"
Every person, except the housekeeper, in this book needs a shrink. The hero married a women because she looked like his mother...eewwww!!!! A 19 year old and a 35 yr old... Ah, not feeling that either. Palmer tossed around suicide attempts and threats like confetti. Couldn't stand the hero. He was a real piece if work. One minute lover the next mean jerk punishing the heroine for his attraction to her. I gave this book almost until the end to redeem itself and it just never did. I finally gave up and quit. I've followed Palmer for years. Don't if her writing is changing or my tastes so my apologies to Palmer fans if I'm off base on this one.
"Best Narrator ever, Phil Gigante!!!"
Phil Gigante is FANTASTIC, one of my favorite narrators ever. I read books narrated by him just so I can enjoy his performances.
I'm furious with being jerked around by this story line, so incredibly frustrating, I'm tempted to stop reading without finishing but of course I can't do that.
This was my first Diana Palmer novel but it won't be my last. I look forward to my next one.
