authorColtrain s Proposal Diana Palmer Most people around Jacobsville knew that Dr Coltrain had as little use for his partner as he had for alcohol He d made it all too evident in the months she d been sharing his practice was a standing joke in the hospital staff that Louise Blakely ended up talking to herself every time she argued with Dr Coltrain She wondered, too, why she kept hanging on where she wasn t wanted The hunger her poor heart felt for him was her only excuse And one day, even that wouldn t be enough This woman in his arms had come to mean a lot to him, without his realizing it until he d kissed her for the first time He laid his cheek against her head with a long sigh It was like coming home And I m the soul of discretion in my private life There was a widow in a city I won t name She and I were good friends, and we supplied each other with something neither of us was comfortable spreading around She married year before last Since then, I ve concentrated on my work and my cattle Period You haven t really gotten over Jane Burke yet You have nothing to offer anyone else until you do That s why I wouldn t marry you added 2018 Secretly she suspected that he was grieving for Jane Parker, his old flame who d just recently married Todd Burke Jane was blond and blue eyed and beautiful, a former rodeo star with a warm heart and a gentle personality.She wasn t bad looking She had long, thick blond hair and big brown eyes and a creamy, blemish free complexion She was tall and willowy, but still shorter than her colleague.He was tall and whipcord lean, with flaming red hair and blue eyes and a dark tan from working on his small ranch when he wasn t treating patients.he did have a smattering of freckles over his nose and the backs of his big hands.I find Louise Blakely repulsive and repugnant, and an automaton with no attractions whatsoever Take her with my blessing I d give real money if she d get out of my practice and out of my life, and the sooner the better She wasn t fiery by nature, but her father had been viciously cruel to her She d learned early not to show fear or back down, because it only made him worse.a pretty young brunette came up beside him and clung to his arm as if it was the ticket to heaven Copper s got a new girl, I see, Drew said with a grin That s Nickie Bolton, he added She works as a nurse s aide at the hospital Lou didn t want to be anybody s second best girl Besides, she never wanted to marry Nickie laughed and dragged Coltrain under the mistletoe, looking up to indicate it there, to the amusement of the others standing by Coltrain laughed softly, whipped a lean arm around Nickie s trim waist and pulled her against his tall body He bent his head, and the way he kissed her made Lou go hot all over She d never been in his arms, but she d dreamed about it The fever in that thin mouth, the way he twisted Nickie even closer, made her breath catch She averted her eyes and flushed at the train of her own thoughts Leave it to Coltrain to draw the prettiest girls Ben chuckled The gossip mill will grind on that kiss for a month He s not usually so uninhibited He must be over his limit You re not getting away this time, he said huskily Before she could think, react, protest, his head bent and his thin, cruel mouth fastened on hers with fierce intent He didn t close his eyes when he kissed, she thought a bit wildly, he watched her all through it His arm pressed her closer to the length of his muscular body, and his free hand came up so that his thumb could rub sensuously over her mouth while he kissed it, parting her lips, playing havoc with her nerves.Nickie held on to him as they went back inside You ve got her lipstick all over you, she accused He paused, shaken out of his brooding Nickie was pretty, he thought, and uncomplicated She already knew that he wasn t going to get serious however long they dated, because he d told her so It made him relax He smiled down at her Wipe it off I m the original bad boy of the community If it hadn t been for the scholarship one of my teachers helped me get, I d probably be in jail by now I had a hard childhood and I hated authority in any form I was in constant trouble with the law She went to the doctors lounge looking for him, and turned the corner just in time to see him with a devastating blond woman in a dress that Lou would love to have been able to afford This is my partner, he said, without giving her name Lou, this is Dana Lester, an old friend His ex fianc e Drew invited her out to eat and she went, gratefully, glad for the diversion But the restaurant he chose, Jacobsville s best, had two unwelcome diners Coltrain and his ex fianc e You were in love with Jane Parker, she said Not for a long time, he said He traced her cheek lightly The way I felt about her was a habit It was one I broke when she married Todd Burke That s why I broke up with Jane, he said matter of factly She was jealous, angry Because she wouldn t go all the way with you I said I was never able to want Jane sexually, he said simply To put it simply, she couldn t arouse me. Read this book a few times now It s all about a woman doctor who moves to a small town to set up shop with the town God doctor They can t seem to agree on anything but toy trains which featured in a lot of DP books after They have a kid at the end and it would seem they would have a lot and maybe take time for it and each other but nope if you keep reading they their story in other books they just have the one and they are just doctors I liked this book a lot better before I knew how they turned out to be just dedicated doctors who s child was an after thought Like ok I did the kid thing and let s just put it in daycare and when I have time I can take it to the zoo In real life I don t think their relationship would last cause they would not have real time for each other It s just knowing Doctors, and both being doctors it would not be all roses and chocolate However the book is good and I gave it 4 stars I just don t love it It s a good story but very DP which is good and bad Their big misunderstanding was very overdone. I was always curious about this couple s story because they appeared in most DP s books whenever there were any needs of medical care, and I didn t realize they indeed had a book until today Really admired h s personality cause she talked back when H treated her badly rather than endured him silently H totally deserved it. Doctors in LoveTHE STORY Dr Louise Lou Blakely and Dr Jebediah Copper Coltrain have been partners in the Jacobsville medical clinic for almost a year Despite the fact that he hired her, however, Copper has treated Lou as an outcast She finally has had enough and has decided to leave, but Copper shocks her by refusing to allow her to resign and instead wants them to get married OPINION I liked this book especially because of the professional relationship between Lou and Coltrain The ins and outs of their medical practice brought a smile to me as they struggled with their relationship This story also was lighter and sweeter than I expected as the two discover what they have in common There are typical misunderstandings that threaten their relationship, but these characters were interesting and I ended up liking them both.WORTH MENTIONING Palmer often has heroes with deep insecurities that cause them to reject the heroines This book is typical in that respect.FINAL DECISION I enjoyed this book While Copper is a jerk to Lou especially at the beginning, the story was also at times funny and sweet as to two find out they are a perfect match for one another.CONNECTED BOOKS COLTRAIN S PROPOSAL is the fourteenth book in the Long, Tall Texans series but can definitely be read as a standalone A secondary character Drew Morris is also the hero of one of the novellas in THE LONG, TALL TEXANS SUMMER.STAR RATING I give this book 4.25 stars. Absolutely loved this book I love a good hero antagonist because he s a mean grouch And a good heroine who could hold her own Such a good book It was funny in some parts and interesting in others You get the gist of it in the description of the book Sidebar Diana Palmer is one of my go to authors when I want a good light hearted book that will put a smile on my face and have me giggling like a little girl I absolutely love her And even though I haven t read a lot of books by her, I know when I do, I ll either love it or think it was an okay read that did its job which was to distract me And this book than its job Dr Louise Blakely knows that Dr Jebediah Coltrain can not stand her Overhearing him saying just that makes her realize that even though she might love the man, she must leave.Jeb has never understood why Lou always backed away from him He knew that he had given her a hard time while working with her But he had a difficult time getting past who her father was, and what he had done He knows that Lou is keeping secrets from him, but he finds that she loves him, and he refuses to let her go.A very sweet story. Enjoyable quick read I have read quite a few of the long tall Texans books and the Doctors Coltrain frequently make an appearance I have been interested in seeing how they got together I liked their chemistry together and how much each loved their careers.
