TLC Book Tours: Fire Brand by Diana Palmer (Review + Giveaway!)

The Story:
He’ll risk his whole heart to save her from the past 

Gaby Cane was always a bit afraid of her attraction to Bowie McCayde. Even when she was fifteen and Bowie’s family took her in, she had sensed his simmering resentment. Now ten years later, she’s an aspiring journalist who can hold her own with any man professionally, the dark shadows of years gone by far behind her. Then Bowie strides back into her life—only this time, he needs her, and the pull of loyalty to his family is too strong to ignore.

When Bowie asked Gaby to help save his family’s Arizona ranch, he never expected the girl he once knew to return transformed into a stunning, successful woman. As they work together, Bowie is shocked to find that her innocence and beauty stir a hunger he can’t deny. But the rogue rancher can sense something holding her back, and he’s determined to uncover the terrible secret Gaby is fighting to keep hidden…

My Thoughts:
Going into the book I didn't know that it was a reprint of a story originally published in the 1980s, and after a few lines it was clear that the story was dated. I love almost any time period, but the dated car, the cigarette smoking, and the general smugness of the hero Bowie was just a little too much for me. I liked that Gaby didn't budge on her views just to try and impress a man who was on the opposite side of the fence on the issue, but overall, there wasn't much else that grabbed me. If you grew up reading 80s or vintage romances, Fire Brand might be a chance for you to relive the nostalgia of your youth, but it wasn't for me.

Note for readers - Keep in mind that this is a general market romance, so there is some brief strong language and sexual content.

~My Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars~

  2. Thank you for sharing your honest thoughts about this book, Renee. Based on what you said, McCayde doesn't sound like much of hero to me.
