A favorite re-read

I have read "Rage of Passion" many times - it is a reliable comfort book when I need a guaranteed pick-me-up. Gabriel is a dream - 100% man and still tender with Maggie and gentle with her daughter. These two ladies needed someone to restore their faith in the male gender, and Gabe did it with patience and love. Honest, witty dialogue, steamy love scenes and just enough conflict to keep it from being unrealistic are what make this a prime example of DP's work, and shows why she is among the most beloved of romance writers. Give it a try, it is a real treat!

Enjoy Rage of Passion over a rainy weekend & relax

I just discovered Diana Palmer and I can't stop raving about her. This is the 3rd book I've read of hers and I've enjoyed each and every one. I can't believe I missed out on this Author who's been writing since the 80's.Gabe was 28 when he first met 15 year old Maggie. He knew she grew attached to him and he felt the same but never let Maggie know it since he knew desiring someone so young was wrong. To him, she was off limits.The book starts about 10 years later and Maggie is just divorced with a six-year old daughter. Maggie runs into her Godmother Janet by accident. Janet suggests Maggie come stay at her ranch to recouperate from Maggie's recent ugly divorce. Maggie knows Janet is Gabe's mother and tries to refuse but Janet can be rather adamant. Thank goodness Janet got her way or I'd have missed out on a good story! The heart of this story is about the love that never got a chance to blossom because of their age difference and a few other circumstances that the young Maggie never knew about. Now they have a 2nd chance to rediscover each other and the love they never got to share and missed out on. I love 2nd chance love stories like this. Not just the premise of the story itself but when the flow of the story is so flawless and so well-written, it's a story not to be missed.I finished the book in 24-hours. The book looks thicker than it really is. They use a bigger font so you don't have to squint to read it and I loved that aspect as well. It made the reading experience that much better since I got to forgo the headache that sometimes accompanies the squinting from reading small fonts in other romances I've read. But don't get me wrong, big print or not, it's the story and the way the story is told that sells the book and I was sold; lock, stock, and barrel!


I am really starting to enjoy Diana Palmer books. For some reason I like the "virgin" or "almost virgin" storylines. They are corny but make the story more interesting. I especially liked the match between Gabe and Maggie. What a pair! Gabe is what you would call one of those "Cowboy, Hunks." And Maggie was crazy in love with him from the time she was a teenager. Gabe being a bit on the "rough" side in the the beginning of the story made it all the more interesting. If you like a good old fashion romance, with a little spice you will enjoy this one.

Terrific as always, wish Palmer could write more - faster...

I enjoyed this book, as I have all Ms. Palmer's books. Yes, they involve fantasy, yet they also involve the very real issues in relationships: past wounds, pride, ego, despair - often followed by healing, humility, courage, humor, compassion. Oops, let's not forget passion. Tough guys have feelings too, and women don't have to be physically stronger to open a man's eyes to LOVE. Palmer book include's these elements and Rage of Passion, was no different. The problem is I have 3 small children, husband, and I work as a full-time RN, but I read this book in three hours, wishing it wouldn't end. Hurry with your next book please.

Interesting read

A very good book. Follows along her usual plots, with the woman being an abuse victim and the man being the rough opinionated man who can get her passed her fears.
