True to type Diana Palmer penned still another tale where
brooding guy is brought to his knees by an unassuming innocent
younger woman and for the most part can't believe it is
him. A recurring theme as any fan of Diana Palmer will tell
egos are ripe for crushing in most Diana Palmer books and
UNDAUNTED is no exception. UNDAUNTED is part of the Long Tall
Texans series and as far as I can tell this is not a reissue
previously published work. Having said that any fan of Diana
should check out their book shelves to be sure.

In the ensuing days and months the relationship between Kate

Falling in love with her boss's handsome millionaire
neighbor was easy for young Emma Copeland. Despite the vast
differences between them, and a past that's left Connor
Sinclair reclusive and wary, Emma gambles her heart on a
desire that rocks them both. But there's something Connor
doesn't know: Emma is responsible for an accident that
changed his life forever.
Connor lives by rules intended to protect both him and his
vast wealth. Emma's innocence is the only thing that's ever
broken through his cold reserve, but now his trust is
shattered. By the time he realizes how much he stands to
lose, it might take a miracle to win her back. But it's a
challenge he'll gladly face for the woman and the family he
needs more than his next breath…
