Karens stories are all soooo romantic and sexy without being erotica. The endings are always what you hope for and there are never any love triangles (i hate love triangles). Her females are strong without being snarky witches which is also refreshing. Very satisfying read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In 1824 Germany, Princess Sierra, Prince Alathom, and adopted American Indian Prince High Wolf plan to flee to Scotland. Sierra and High Wolf are in love and plan to marry while Alathom just wants his freedom from state responsibilities including marrying the princess. However, the escape fails with Sierra stopped by her father, who plans to see her politically married to Alathom of the neighboring dukedom. Father Junipero tells Sierra that High Wolf demanded gold to break the engagement while Alathom vanished. The ceremony was done by proxy as he fails to appear............................ Ten years later, Sierra is in St. Louis seeking her husband Alathom who never came home. Though she hates him and High Wolf for their betrayal, she needs Alathom to come home to avert a war between their duchies. Sierra has done her best to rule over the two lands, but everyone blames her for her missing spouse. Governor Clark arranges for the best scout High Wolf to escort her Highness, but when he sees Sierra, he refuses as he feels she betrayed their vows of love. Sierra continues her quest without him, but he follows her for safety purposes...................... This is an exciting historical romance that brings to life early Americana through the insightful look at the Indian tribes and the use of Governor Clark (Lewis and Clark fame). Each of the prime trio is unique with fully developed personalities. Though the mysticism is interesting it also enables too easy of a resolution than a decade of increasing discontent should allow. Still fans of early nineteenth century romances will appreciate this astute glimpse of a bygone era.................... Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A gift not to be missed
Two worlds and two cultures; yet, after 10 years, two hearts still beat as one. Princess Sierra is in America on a mission to find her husband who is presumed dead. She is bound by duty to do the best she can for her people and her country. Sierra must locate High Wolf, the handsome Cheyenne brave she once loved to fiercely she would have thrown away her family, her friends, even her life as a princess. Now, he and he alone can lead her on her journey to find her husband, Prince Alathom. After all, High Wolf did make a promise to her a decade ago, 'ASK, AND I WILL COME.' Honor demands that he lead Sierra on her journey, her quest. This journey rekindles the passion they once shared for one another and their lives become irrevocably entertwined. But, it is a love that can never be. How is Sierra ever to leave High Wolf, again? And, for High Wolf, without Sierra he will be only half alive. It is betrayal that drove them apart, duty that kept them apart and love that brings them back together. Once again, Ms. Kay captures the heart and soul of the American indian, this time through High Wolf and Princess Sierra. In doing so, she also captures the hearts of her readers. With beauty, elegance and grace we become one with the indian scout, with nature, with our senses. We walk in their shoes, smell the damp leaves on the forest floor and visualize all the colors in a sunrise. Thank you, Ms. Kay, for letting us in, once again, to the heart, mind, soul, beauty, pride, dignity, honesty, strength and intelligence of the American indian. In doing so we understand more fully and can love more deeply because we see more clearly. This story is one not to be missed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
