    One thought on “Courageous”

    1. I love Diana Palmer and the fact that the books are all written with the same formula. I actually like that! I like that the hero/heroine are always so similar (older guy/younger girl with strong moral values etc). They were always funny and well written, with an emphasis on the hero/heroine and their relationship. This was such a disappointment. The secondary storyline with General Machado totally took over that there was no way I could get behind the relationship of Grange and Peg. I was so lo [...]

    2. If your idea of romance is two people endlessly, smugly lecturing each other about how corrupt and immoral everyone else in the world is except for them, draw up a bubble bath and settle in for a treat. I gave up when the heroine declared that she wouldn't go to college because she'd be forced to live with strange men in co-ed dorms.

    3. I wonder if I should count it as dnf as I must have skimmed 50% of it?Peg and Grange were only in about half of the book, though maybe this was a good thing as neither character was very likeable. Just a horrible mess of a book. Totally outdated concepts and dialogue. I used to look forward to DPs new books, but now I almost dread reading them. I checked this one out of the library and it sat on my counter until it was overdue. The thought of the fine was my incentive to read it. Won't be checki [...]

    4. For this review and more visit my blogIt is rare that I don’t finish a book, even if I hate a it I normally read to the end, anything else feels like cheating but I got to the half-way point of Courageous and had to stop. I just couldn’t carry on.I think the big problem I had with this is that I just found it really, really boring. I could not get myself interested in it at all. The romance was bizarre and the rest seemed to be taken up with military talk that just did not interest me.I also [...]

    5. I've been reading DP's books since the 80s, and this may be the last book of hers I pay for. The hero is a nonentity, the heroine is mentally deficient, there isn't a plot per say but rather a history lesson, the dialogue is atrocious and the love scenes are over before they even start. Ms. Palmer wrote better stories 15 years ago. They were all "virgins meet men who are 15 years older than them but that doesn't matter" stories but they were humorous and fun. The last batch have been anything bu [...]

    6. This is my first audiobook of a Diana Palmer book, and overall, I liked it. I didn't care for the way the narrator voiced the females. He sounded too falsetto for my tastes. I think I enjoyed this more than other reviewers, although I agree that there were a lot of random conversations and less focus on the romance than I would have liked.Diana Palmer is a long-time favorite of mine. She's a sweet lady and I will always read her books.Reviewed for Affaire de Coeur magazine. affairedecoeur.

    7. One day I will learn to look at reviews BEFORE I buy/check-out a book instead of AFTER so I can determine if I am alone in my assessment. Diana Palmer was one of the first romance writers I read (sneaking the book from my great-aunt's guest room as a young teenager). I was super disappointed in this book to the point I stopped reading after the hero landed in the jungle. It was too much military stuff. As others have noted, the heroine supposedly has all these values but then over-sexes herself. [...]

    8. I'll be bluntly honest and say I wasn't able to finish this book. While I can generally get over Palmer's use of the super Alpha hero and the naive heroine, this time it didn't work for me.Peg was past naive and fell into the TSTL category that I can't stand to read. How can a young woman be so naive that she'll get on a plane to a war ravaged country without any questions? She's basically believing what this person tells her and follows after skipping and singing la-la-la! (figuratively speakin [...]

    9. 'Courageous' is the story of Grange and Peg.Grange is a rancher and an undercover officer, and lives with his morals and dignity, when his foreman's daughter Peg starts attracting his attention.Peg is 19 and has loved Grange forever. When he refuses to acknowledge her, she tries out various methods to get his attention.However, soon Grange has to go on a mission and that leads to start of an adventure.As a DP book, we know we are getting a virgin heroine, a brooding hero and loads of hairy chest [...]

    10. I have been a Diana Palmer fan for the past sixteen years, ever since I read my first book by her when I was sixteen. Whether she was writing historical, or modern Texas cowboy romances I was always willing to shell out the money for her latest release, without even reading the book blurb. That has slowly begun to change the last four or five years. Oh, I still buy them but I'm just a bit hesitant, and after reading a couple of reviews on Courageous, I decided to borrow it from the library first [...]

    11. When you think of mac and cheese ,pepperoni pizza,mashed potatoes and gravy and fried chicken?What comes to mind?I think comfort food.Diana Palmer is my literary version of comfort food.She is an indulgence,no matter how bad you may think it is for you.I really wanted to rate this book higher,as this author has long been a particular favorite of mine.The book started out fine,we meet the heroine Peg ,who is housekeeper/cook for the hero Grange.The setting is on a ranch in Texas,Commanche Wells.S [...]

    12. Do you like books that have cowboys, friendship, romance, moral values with a little South America coupe thrown in? If so you are going to love Courageous by Diana Palmer!Now I will totally admit that I am a fan of Ms. Palmer’s books. Whenever I am in a reading slump or just want something comfortable to read – I pick up one her books. While a lot of them are in a series, you never feel like you missed anything y not reading them in order. Also a lot of her books have some of the same plot t [...]

    13. A lot of other readers here on goodread don't really like this one. I thought it was an amazing addition to the story ofEl Generaland his country. I liked Grange and Peg's story, Diana Palmer did a good job on it. It was engaging and spirited. Also Peg was a spit-fire, I love a good heroine. And Mrs. Palmer does a great job of writing one. I like military based books, whether historical or romance based. I haven't read a lot of historical militia books but ive watched enough documentaries to app [...]

    14. I am so glad I got this book from the library. wants $9.46 for the Kindle edition, and it's so bad they should pay us to read it.The plot is feeble, the dialogue is stilted, and the characters are one-dimensional stereotypes. My biggest peeve -- the characters are in Manaus, and the supporting cast (waiters, clerks, etc.) keep throwing in words in Spanish. I guess that's to give us some local color. A quick glance in a guide book would show that Manaus is in Brazil where they speak Portuguese.S [...]

    15. I should have put it down after the first 20 pages but I decided to tough it out. Big mistake. This was a seriously lousy book. I've read some self-published books with a better plot and more likeable characters. I'm just happy I got it from the library so I don't have to feel dumb for wasting money.

    16. I can't believe that I made it through the whole book. The first half was really preachy and makes you suspend a lot of disbelief. If you make it through that, it isn't a half-bad story.

    17. - 100* (negative ONE HUNDRED STARS!) OH MY GOD! What the hell was this!??!?!! I am sorry, what???? This book deserves NEGATIVE STARS! (And how did it even get 3.6* avg rating when the top 10 reviews I read were all 1* reviews?!) More than anything, I hate when authors insult my intelligence! Actually, no, more than anything, I hate when they PREACH at me. Direct quote that summarizes the preachy tone of this book: "I believe sex and marriage go hand in hand. I can't change and I won't change. Th [...]

    18. I kept thinking while listening to this book that it was written in the early 1970's or maybe 1980's and rewritten for 2012 re-publication. it was bad so so bad. The herione is a 19 yr old virgin the Hero is a 30 something virgin (really?), Don't buy it, get it from your local library has it for $5.99

    19. Another story after a storyI enjoy a good read that leads to another good read, series are fun! I also enjoy a book that I don't have to read in a certain order. This author writes a great book full of excitement and controlled romance!

    20. One of my favorite Diana Palmer books. It actually had a great story instead of just romance. Read the book in a day.

    21. I can not say enough good things about Diana Palmer booksThe characters are real and the plots are great.

    22. Setting: Comanche Wells, Texas; Medina, Barrera (South America)Theme: Revolution, first love/married love,Characters:Peg Larson – 19 years old, values her virginity, values home, housekeeps for Winslow’s ranch, in love with Winslow. Humorously finding ways to attract his attention… Winslow Grange – exmilitary in Iraq, as mercenary rescued Mrs. Pendleton from South American terrorists… and was rewarded with a ranch, starting cattle, and Peg & Ed.

    23. Review:Courageous by Diana Palmer . 4 STARS Peg Larson is determined to catch her boss Grange. She is only 19 been kissed once but she knows what she wants. She tries flirting,suggestive talk,talking about collage. Peg is his cook and her father is his manager. Its a small ranch that Grange's boss gave him after he rescued his wife. Pegs talks all about her experience since she had sex at 14. Which got Grange kissing her hard and scared her. Grange realized that she had been lying to him. Grange [...]

    24. I've read four Diana Palmer books so far, and I would rank this at #3, probably. I didn't really like it, had to force myself through parts, especially toward the beginning. I am drawn to her books through an interest in particular characters, rather than an overall plot or appreciation for her writing. So it's always disappointing when those characters aren't discussed as much as I'd like. "Grange" was uneven and not as smart as he is described, "Peg" is as thick as a plank, and they both have [...]

    25. Homens do Texas 46ValenteDiana PalmerH.Rainhas do Romance 802013Nossa!!!Sou fã da Diana Palmer, mesmo assim, fiquei surpresa.Arrisco a dizer que é um dos melhores livros que li desta autora nos últimos anos.Epa!!!Muita calma nesta hora.Isso não quer dizer que o livro e tudo mais seja perfeito.Houve deslizes básicos, que devemos nos acostumar, porque além de ser uma constante, a autora não esta bem de saúde e sua memória já no é a mesma.E como o número de personagens só aumenta, não [...]

    26. The hits just keep on coming with this series! Winslow Grange has either appeared, or his name has come up, in many of the Long Tall Texan books. In COURAGEOUS we learn what makes him tick. In addition to being Jason Pendleton's ranch foreman, he is a former Special Forces officer and a modern day mercenary. As ex-President Emilio Machado mounts his attack to retake his country he hires Grange to lead his army. A wise choice since Grange has the necessary connections both in and outside of the c [...]

    27. I read this book because I saw the name Winslow Grange. I remember him from a previous book and thought, what the heck. In the past I've read some of Diana Palmer's books and liked. This one, I didn't. Grange complained within the first chapter how much he wanted to remain away from nineteen year old Peg, that she was after him and he wanted no part of her. Besides, Grange had a thing for his brother's wife, Peg who he rescued in the earlier book. After being talked into taking Peg to a dance, s [...]

    28. I usually read about 50 pages or at least 2 CDs before I give up on a book. I lasted only half of the first disc. First, Peg, the 19-YO, naive heroine states that she is different from her friends because she doesn't believe in sex before marriage. Then she proceeds to say really suggestive things to the Winslow (the hero). Things like: "I hear they have birth control now that is 100% effective." and "It's not the size that matters; it's what you do with it that counts." Really? A few pages late [...]
