He Had Given Her the One Thing She Treasured Most…and He Didn't Even Know It

Eden Maes came back to the Native American pueblo to clear her family's name for the sake of her baby boy. What she found was danger…land only one strong helping hand.

She knew that as a tribal cop, it was Nick Black Raven's duty to protect her. And as a man who'd once loved her, it was his debt of honor. But as the father of their child…. Would he remain a slave to his badge or could the call of family claim his heart forever?

Aimee Thurlo enters the secret baby marathon with 'Black Raven's Pride,' the sequel to December's 'Christmas Witness.' Eden Maes has returned to the San Esteban Pueblo with her baby son. Years ago, her parents were accused of stealing artifacts from the tribe. To guarantee her son's legacy, she must prove their innocence, even if someone is making it clear they want to keep the truth hidden. The one man whose help she doesn't want is the one who offers it. He may not know it, but Nick Black Raven is her son's father. Can she trust that he's changed enough for her to tell him?

'Black Raven's Pride' may please those new to Thurlo's work. Unfortunately, regular readers may find much of it to be a less successful retread of her other books. Like most of her books, there is the expected racial conflict between one character who is Native American and one who is not, though it is given an interesting twist by having Eden be half white. That at least offers a fresh element to it. However, some of her other books, such as 'Breach of Faith' (Intrigue 200) and 'Shadow of the Wolf' (217) used the same theft of tribal artifacts plot, with one of the leads trying to prove an accused family member is innocent. The story line was more successful in those books, both of which are recommended over this one.

This book's first chapter is its strongest. It kicks off with an action sequence, followed by some heated moments as the leads reunite for the first time since their child was conceived. From there, the book slows way down. The storytelling becomes lazy in more ways than one, like when the author offers exposition by having characters tell each other things they already know. (Having them preface it by saying 'As I'm sure you know' before launching into a long speech doesn't make it more acceptable.) The book drag

Eden Maes returns to the Tewa Pueblo so that she can clear her parents name and be welcomed back into the tribe. Years ago, her parents were accused of stealing sacred tribal items, but Eden believes someone framed them. She never expected to encounter Nick Black Raven living in the Pueblo, but he has come home to claim his inheritance. Unbeknownst to Nick is that he is the father of Eden¿s son.

Nick is now a tribal officer. He is determined to find the people responsible for harassing Eden. He insists on helping her with her quest. Working together, the pair tries to flush out an individual who plans to keep the stolen contraband for his use while fight the attraction that springs up between them.

Aimee Thurlo always provides her readers with an exciting story and her latest, BLACK RAVEN¿S PRIDE, is no exception to her track record. The work cleverly blends romance and suspense, giving it crossover appeal to fans of both genres. The fascinating heroine is stubborn, vulnerable, and yet strong. Her male counterpart is courageous, compassionate, yet so sensitive he fears being hurt by his feelings. Their love story makes for great reading.
