Heroine is a geologist for an energy company in Tulsa. Hero is head of security for the company after his stints in the military and CIA. The problem? Hero is Apache (Half – his mother was white) and doesn’t trust white women after a socialite had an affair with him and then dropped him after the novelty wore off. Heroine is incredibly beautiful and is fighting sexism in a male-dominated industry. They are thrown together when the hero has to guard the heroine while she conducts field work looking for molybdenum, a mineral, in the Arizona desert. Heroine is a virgin and hero does a lot of early DP “virgin whispering” and running hot and cold. They eventually work it out in a satisfying way. This is a much better story than Man In Control, which I read yesterday. So why only three stars? Because this is problematic as hell. Yes, it was written in 1990, but it was re-issued in 2003 along withMan In Control because this hero appears in that book as head of security as well. The editors didn’t soften the problematic passages and I was cringing the entire time. What do I mean by problematic? Diana Palmer is trying to address racism against Apaches. That’s great. But she is a white woman (who has done her homework) so that when the hero is laments racism, I am sympathetic to him. But when I encounter white characters in this story indulging in stereotypes, I cringe. There were stereotypes I had forgotten about and yet, here they are in this romance novel. DP is fighting these stereotypes – but having them laid out for me as a reader reminded me of the bad old days and in the end, I didn’t feel much had been healed. For example: This is the heroine’s point of view: In her early days with the company, she’d made the unforgivable mistake of raising her hand and saying “how.” Hunter probably liked the kind of woman who’d walk three steps behind her husband and chew rawhide to make them soft for his moccasins. Yikes. I had more sympathy for what DP was trying to do when she gave us the hero’s point of view: He remembered another beautiful blond, the one who’d deserted him when he’d been five years old. Her Apache child had been an embarrassment in her social circles. By then, of course, her activist phase was over, and she had her sights on one of her own people. Some years back, he’d been taken in by a socialite himself. I’m still Apache, Jenny, despite my white blood. But if I had a child with a white woman, he’d be a lost soul, like me. Caught between two worlds. My own people have a hard time accepting me, even though I look more Apache than white.” But then the author trots out statements like this that “other” the hero: “Well, for the book, Apaches don’t kiss their women on the mouth. Did you know that an Apache can go without water for two days by sucking on pebbles?” He was careful to say won’t and not can’t—lying was almost impossible for him. Apaches considered it bad manners to lie. The H/h arguments were also larded with racial animosity: It’s been years since I’ve scalped anyone,” he said suddenly, his angry eyes searching hers. She turned away. “If you don’t mind sparing me your noble red man impersonation, I’d like to get my equipment.” I don’t like being the only Indian around. Where were all these damned suicidal white women over a hundred years ago? I’ll tell you, they were hiding behind curtains with loaded rifles! But now, all of a sudden, they can’t wait to be thrown on a horse and carried off.” Even when the heroine is standing up for him, using sarcasm to wide-eyed socialite, it just turns out cringe: “I know, isn’t it fascinating?” Jennifer confided. “Did you know that he rubs himself all over with bear grease every night at bedtime? It’s a ritual. And he keeps rattlesnakes,” she whispered, “to use in fertility dances . . .” So I salute Diana Palmer for tackling this touchy subject, but I can’t whole-heartedly support what I’ve just read. Diana Palmer checklist: Hairy chest No. Muscular, though. And heroine can’t keep her eyes off of it. Breast Description “They were full. Very full and very firm, and tip-tilted.” And: “Pink and mauve, like clouds on the horizon just at dawn when the sun touches them.” Cigarettes Trying to quit Alcohol No. “Some scientists have ventured the opinion that Indians lack the enzyme necessary to process alcohol.” Town Descriptions Set in Tulsa, the Arizona desert, and Washington DC Gardenia Scent Hero had a “spicy scent” LOL detail Hero also reads ancient Greek. Cutesy detail Ongoing reptile cuteness from His Girl Friday. “I’d really prefer Norman the Iguana. He’s better tempered than you are, he doesn’t swear, and he’s never insulted me.” (Reviewers note: reptiles are never cute)

    Hunter is your typical DP hero. He is attracted to Jennifer a beautiful geologist but he is insecure, a loner and has mother issues. He is an Apache so he believes Jennifer is not for him that she can never be a part of his world. Jennifer is in love with him and she wants everything with Hunter but he won't let her in even though it's obvious he lusts after her. Poor girl she really had her heart broken cause of Hunter's rejection. I was rooting so bad for her to get her HEA! This book had grea Hunter is your typical DP hero.

    Not exactly my favorite. I mean, Hunter's typical Diana Palmer's jerkass hero, but I think this Hunter guy is kind of annoying. I didn't get their chemistry. :/ But I did enjoyed this book as much as any other Diana Palmer. Nice. :) Not exactly my favorite.

    Sweet Sparring Romance FINAL DECISION: This is a light novel with a sparring romance between the hero and heroine. A cross-cultural romance with characters who are good people and compassionate, I enjoyed their interplay and the lack of cruel behavior by the hero.

A cross-cultural romance with characters who are good people and compassionate, I enjoyed their interplay and the lack of cruel behavior by the hero. THE STORY: Jennifer Marist is a blond geologist who works in a male field and has been separated from most men as a result. She is twenty-seven but hasn't had a serious relationship because of her career. Phillip Hunter is chief of security for Ritter Oil and is tasked with secret operations. When Jennifer's work requires her to spend a week in the desert, Hunter is sent along to protect her. Hunter is determined to not succumb to his attraction to Jennifer. As a Native American, he has sworn never to get involved with a white woman again. So his predicament is this -- keep Jennifer at a distance while protecting her. OPINION: I really liked the connection between Hunter and Jennifer. This book was originally published as a category romance and thus is short and had restrictions on the length and content at the time it was written. Despite this, however, the sweet romance between Hunter and Jennifer shines through. I especially like how the two characters spar with one another and how Hunter has made a habit of rescuing Jennifer from the trouble she gets into. Hunter is one of the sweet Palmer heroes...compassionate and gentle rather than rude and angry. WORTH MENTIONING: At times Palmer heroes are exceptionally cruel to the heroines because they either misunderstand the motivations of the heroine or don't appreciate her innocence. Hunter doesn't want to get involved with Jennifer, but he is much kinder toward her than might be expected in a Palmer book. CONNECTED BOOKS: HUNTER is connected with HIS GIRL FRIDAY but can be read as a standalone. STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.

    Me encanta este tipo de novelas donde creen que por ciertas cosas no se puede estar juntos, donde juegan los miedos y siempre vence el amor a pesar de todo. de fácil lectura y pasión picante.

Letto e recensito da Iaia In questo secondo romanzo della miniserie Marist, troviamo che i protagonisti, Jennifer Marist e Phillip Hunter, sono la classica coppia descritta nella premessa del primo episodio. Lui è un meticcio, figlio di un Apache e di una donna bianca, da questa abbandonato perché non desiderava più vivere nella riserva indiana. Si è laureato, ha fatto parecchi lavori, anche governativi e ora è il capo della sicurezza nella ditta in cui lavora Jennifer, bravissima geologa. Lei ha 27 anni, ed è ancora completamente priva di esperienza in campo sessuale, anche se all'apparenza, bella com'è, farebbe pensare il contrario. Ma è quello che vuole credere Hunter. Lui, con il suo modo di fare, umilia, con le sue battute la Marist, nonostante abbia perso la testa per lei, ed è proprio in questo caso che bisogna tirar fuori la "padella" virtuale visto il suo comportamento così duro, arrogante e a volte offensivo. I due hanno continui battibecchi, si cercano e si allontanano l'uno dall'altra, lavorano insieme e la corrente elettrica tra loro è molto elevata, tanto che potrebbe illuminare tutta la città. Se ne rendono conto, ma Phillip non vuole stare con Jennifer: è convinto che lei, essendo bianca, si comporterà come sua madre. E' un continuo tira e molla e Jennifer soffre moltissimo. Lui capisce i sentimenti di questa donna, ma non vuole cedere. Tutto finirà nel modo migliore, ma se lui avesse patito un po' di più, sarebbe stato giusto. Non voglio dare il massimo dei voti in questa vicenda, perché ho trovato un po' esagerato il comportamento di Hunter, e ho trovato un po' fuori dal tempo, l'innocenza di Jennifer. Consiglio comunque di leggere queste due storie. Se amate la Palmer non vi deluderà, se non la conoscete, inizierete ad apprezzarla.

    Honestly, what can I say here? I am a sucker for these good ol’ cheesy Harlequin romance novels. They’re a bit sexist and a lot of the time reign from Texas (see what I did there?) They just have a special quality to them with there Fabio-esque covers, big hairy chested “manly men” who are complete brutes BUT with feelings, and a sweet, docile, homely woman who’s his perfect counterpart and just wants to love and be loved! I can’t decide what I loved more in this one. So here are my top three: 1 Honestly, what can I say here? I am a sucker for these good ol’ cheesy Harlequin romance novels.

I can’t decide what I loved more in this one. So here are my top three: 1. Jenny is a geologist!!! I love a girl in a science field and rocks are fun everyone!! 2. Dear, precious Eugene, who is both Hunter and Jenny’s boss. He had become quiet the meddlesome matchmaker. I found him to be taking after the Don of patriarchal meddling himself, our beloved Daniel McGregor from The McGregor series by Nora Roberts. (If you’ve made your way to reading this review, I highly recommend giving the series a go.) 3. If I had to put my finger down on my favorite bit from this book it would have to be....drumroll please: Gunfire!!! I’m not morbid, I swear, I just laughed myself silly at this part. I kid you not, it came out of absolutely no where. I just remember reading the word blood and going “Huh?” I literally had to stop and go back to find that yes, in fact, shots were fired!!!! Priceless Harlequin at its very best.

    Phillip Hunter works for an oil company as a security officer. He walks in two worlds as his mom was caucasian and his dad was Apache. He doesn't feel like he fits in in either world. He has been burned by a white woman before so when Jennifer Marist, a female caucasian woman falls for him, he becomes bitter and antagonistic towards her when his boss keeps throwing them together. This is true Diana Palmer. The hero is hard, handsome and determined to keep the woman he loves away. The heroine is Phillip Hunter works for an oil company as a security officer.

I ended up liking Hunter even though he is a jerk until he realizes he loves her.

    The story was ok. The Hero was nice. I just did not like the Heroine. Way to opposite and too needy. One minute she is a strong geologidt in the mans world of oil. The next she is a quiver mess begging a man to kiss her. And the hero was off and on blaming heritage too often.

    oh dearie. it had to happen sometime in my life. and 5 hours into the 40 hour train ride to perth was as good a time as any to read my first book in this genre. trashy, dumb, irritating, weak female characters, dodo men, stupid. and okay fine, mildly entertaining. but i will not be searching out any other romantic novels in the foreseeable future.

    El protagonista en toda la novela es "odioso" con la protagonista pero esta novela tiene una de las escenas que más me han conmovido, sin descubrir nada la escena del espejo es en mi opinión de las más románticas.
