    1. DPs are certainly meshing into 2-3 basic globs for me!This one is where the bff's big bad ranch owner brother is the H, who thoroughly disapproves of the h but she keeps going back for the staple insults.H named King – check.Alpha Cowboy, huge Ranch owner – checkChick magnet but long celibate- checkH’s sister is the h’s bff – checkOrphan Annie h, a model who’d rather teach KG - checkh displays cooking/secretarial/ general doormat skills - checkh misjudged, labeled, abused - checkH ha [...]

    2. "Darling Enemy" is the story of Teddi and King.Teddi our protagonist is an orphan, and spends her days modelling in NY in order to pay her rent. She has a slutty aunt with leechy boyfriend, whom she avoids.Her best friend and confidante is Jenna, her room-mate who has a brother- the ever brooding and handsome King- whom she has secretly lusted after and who hates her because he believes all models are sluts, and sluts are bad bla bla.When one morning before vacations, King is ranting about Teddi [...]

    3. A nice entertaining read, called Darling Enemy.This is an older book and there is smoking involved. King is a rough and tough cattleman who has not been to charm school. He has no time for the empty headed glamorous model Teddi and he lets her know it. They trade insults back and forth as they both try to disguise their real feelings. A tragic event from Teddi's life surfaces leaving King feeling protective and this opens the doorway to love.This was a nice read but not one of her best. Somehow [...]

    4. 3.5 Stars!Diana Palmer books are one of my guilty pleasure! No matter how much her books enraged me at times, I still loved it. I don't know why but I always enjoyed her overbearing, domineering, arrogant, judgmental and highly possessive heroes and her sweet, naive, feisty and virginal heroines. And besides, her books was always quite full of emotional and sexual tension which I loved in a book.

    5. I have to stop reading these. I think I always expect them to be better than they are, but they're really just a rehashing of the same story over and over. A quick read and mindless - but kind of boring at this point.

    6. I have three words for this title: Diana Palmer tropes. Seriously, if you've read even a handful of her books (the non-action ones, though they also follow similar patterns with each other and incorporate elements from her purely romantic books), you know what I'm talking about. Granted, this was written in 1983 and romance novels by many different authors back then featured the typical arrogant, macho, experienced men and shy, delicate, naive women. I know this because I have read plenty of the [...]

    7. Well, sedikit bikin kesel, sih. Terri (atau Teddi?) adalah seorang model. Dia sudah jatuh cinta pada kakak sahabatnya, Kingston, sejak dulu. Tapi sayang, King yang menganggap Terri sebagai model "nakal" yang suka menggoda pria-pria kaya, membencinya dan memperlakukannya dengan kasar. Sampai pada akhirnya King menyentuh Terri dan mengetahui kenyataan yang sebenarnya tentang Terri. Tapi semua sudah terlambat Kurang greget kalau kataku. Terri terlalu 'letoy' dan Kingston terlalu jahat. Perkataan ma [...]

    9. Diana Palmer dulunya termasuk salah satu pengarang favorit aku, tp koq ya 4-5 novel terakhir DP yang aku baca, ga ada satupun yang bagus T.TYang ada hanyalah jalan cerita yang miripp satu sama lain, karakter hero- heroine yang setipe smua. Hero yang nyebelin, kasar, curigaan melulu dan heroine yang lugu, polos dan pastinya masih V. Si Kingston di Darling Enemy ini bener2 super duper menyebalkan! sebentar sinis sebentar lembut. diprovokasi dikit langsung jahat lg sama Teddi.Teddi jg terlalu lemah [...]

    10. This was quite a good read and I quite enjoyed it! But sigh,lack of communicationwas something which always ate my head and my heart out. But the writer was convincing and she quite made me, almost, sympathize with the heroine and act like some riled up fairy Godmother, throwing the hero out of my house while taking her under my care. But that didn't happen and the main characters managed to get their differences out of the way. It was quite nice, and I didn't hate my gut to want to read this bo [...]

    11. El peor libro de la historia. Ni sé porqué lo tengo. Creo que alguien que me odia me lo regalo. (Lo bueno que ya lo quemé).King es un abusador, machista, violador y agresivo. Teddi es una idiota sin voz ni voto. Cuando King le hace daño, llora y le suplica. Un par de puñetazos y patadas en sus partes sensibles es lo que necesitaba el infeliz de King.Todos los personajes son unos imbéciles, que no sirven para nada, y que se dejan manipular por King. Ni la mejor amiga de Teddi interviene par [...]

    12. LOVE CLASHTeddi Whitehall longed to escape from her hectic life as a New York model, and a summer in the wilds of Canada with her best friend's family sounded perfect. But arrogant rancher Kingston Devereaux seemed intent on making her feel anything but welcome.Teddi knew King was convinced she was nothing but a glamorous playgirl. She also knew that the truth wasn't about to change his mind. So why did she feel so alive when he was near?Giving her heart to a man who despised her was bad enough. [...]

    13. Novel harlequin yang bikin emosi naek turun. cocok sih sama judulnya. Tarik ulur gaya Kingston dan Teddi bikin gemes aja. Bertengkarikanrtengkar lagiOMG and Kingston C'mon masa segampang itu percaya sama omongan orang yg gak Jelas, kaya orang bodo aja plizz deh, mending cari detektif aja sono :D

    14. kebagian baca novelnya yang cover baru tahun 2012, ini terbitan lama banget, bahkan sebelum aku lahir! ringan?? ga juga karena bikin emosi muncak juga waktu King memperlakukan Teddi dengan kasar, aku anti kekerasan. tapi yah happy ending juga lah (teteeppp Harl always hapend) hehe ga ada karya Diana Palmer yang ga aku suka :)

    15.

    16. Another tormented, frustrated, alpha male seducing a seductive, worldly, temptress pretending to be a naieve, virginal, sweet young thang. Give me a break.Why do they stay? It can't just be youth. I do NOT remember being that dumb at 21, not THAT dumb.

    17. Not a typical Diana Palmer. I really disliked Teddi because of the transparent-blouse-televised-throughout-the-country part :@ That is SO not like a regular DP heroine. But dammit, it's a Diana Palmer, that's why the extra grace star.

    18. Great readGreat readyou can not get any better read then a palmer booke woman never wrote a bad book. I have read every book she has written.:/

    19. kadang kesel juga baca ini novel, kadang cowok emang egoois nih, ga mau denger penjelasan org. tp tetep otre

    20. Quick and satisfyingRead it at 16 and at 46. Still a good bit of escapism. Love the tension between the main characters.

    21. Exciting readDiana Palmer does it again as in, keeping you reading more and more till your finished. Read more of her books to get good reads.
