Untamed is the latest book in the Diana Palmer Long Tall Texan series and features Stanton Rourke and Clarisse Carrington. This is not really a stand alone book, because Ms. Palmer has built an entire community with the Long Tall Texan cast of characters and if you have not read the previous books you won’t really understand all the nuances to the stories. Plus, Clarisse’s story really starts with a previous book. Palmer has penned hundreds of romances and she has a tried and true method that proves to be an enjoyable read. She doesn’t stray far from her format, and that’s what fans love about her. I admit some of the tropes in this book felt a little overused but I still enjoyed the book.

Stanton Rourke has been operating under a bad assumption about Clarisse “Tat” Carrington for years. He’s always dismissed her as a flighty, reckless, debutante with more air than brains in her head. However, the loss of Clarisse’s entire family changed her in unexpected ways. She has thrown herself into her job and ultimately in danger. When she and Rourke come back together again sparks begin to fly and it’s only a matter of time before they succumb to their untamed desire for each other.
