New Palmer romance will please her fans

Some things you can count on when you read a book by Diana Palmer:
You will need tissues.
The hero will behave abominably toward the heroine.
The heroine will be a sympathetic, old-fashioned, naive and innocent younger woman whose life takes a tragic turn, made worse by the actions of the hero.
The hero will ultimately fix everything and give the heroine a happily-ever-after.
"Wyoming Fierce" is vintage Palmer, which will delight fans who enjoy the author's homespun, corny and old-fashioned writing.
This is second in a series, featuring the second of the Kirk brothers to find love.
The plot is vintage Palmer: Rich man Cane is skeptical of ever finding a woman who will love him rather than his money. Adding to his cynicism and disdain of marriage, he lost part of his arm serving in Iraq.
Bodie, his neighbor, seems to be the only person who can soothe Cane when he goes on a drunken rage.
Sober, however, he's not very nice to her. Unbeknown to Cane and his brothers, Bodie and her grandfather are having all sorts of tragic problems. And, of course, Cane exacerbates them.
Cane and Bodie's relationship takes readers on an emotional roller coaster. But by the final page, they are enjoying romantic bliss.

How it stacks up
