Storyline

After the break up of her marriage, photographer Samantha Taylor retreats to the sanctuary of friend Caroline Lord's California ranch. An excellent rider, Samantha is initially given a frosty welcome by the ranch hands, but she begins to gain their respect as they see that she is more than able on a horse and in their environment. Samantha falls in love with ranch hand Tate Jordan, and they share a deep and passionate love until Tate finds out that Samantha's ex-husband is popular and wealthy news anchor Warren Taylor. Ashamed by his profession and his 'status', he leaves the ranch. Samantha is heartbroken once again and tries to assuage her pain by embarking on a project photographing the 'real' cowboys of the west. Whilst visiting a ranch in California, Samantha breaks her back in an accident and is paralysed, and must learn how to walk - and ride - again. Caroline Lord tragically dies but leaves her ranch to Samantha, who turns it into a riding school for paralysed children. ... Written by Stacey Mitchell <staceym@btinternet.com>

Heartfelt, passionate love story will bring out all the emotions
19 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Highly recommend this passionate story from America's beloved Queen of romance, Danielle Steel.

Lee Horsley brings the heat as rugged cowboy Tate Donovan, and Lindsay Frost is perfect as Samantha Taylor, the blonde New Yorker who flies to California to visit longtime friend Caroline Lord at the ranch.

Fueled by passion, anger, tragedy, desire, heartbreak and triumph, "PALOMINO" will warm your heart, bring out all the possible emotions a human can feel.

Well-written script by Karol Ann Hoeffner, who adapted Steel's novel as well as other Steel books.

As a longtime Steel reader, I've enjoyed a wide array of her TV movies, but this one claims the prize as the most loved.

The breathtaking scenery of southern California and the rolling, golden hills provide the perfect romantic backdrop, along with horses, cowboys and a great cast. PALOMINO will not disappoint.
