Overview

A SORBONNE EDUCATED “SAVAGE”

Half white, half Cheyenne, Hawk Sinclair straddles two worlds but does not belong to either. He and his white father hate each other. But Noah Sinclair needs his son’s lethal skills to destroy the predators that would ravage his empire. Yet Hawk knows that no “dirty breed” will inherit the bitter old man’s wealth.

A FLAME-HAIRED BEAUTY

Carrie Patterson, young and innocent, is virtually sold by her vicious aunt to a man twice her age. Noah intends to use her as a “brood mare.” She dutifully struggles to make the marriage work until Noah brutally informs her that all he wants is a white heir to supplant Hawk, the very man who haunts her dreams.

A MYSTIC MEDICINE DREAM

THE POWERS wove a grand design when Hawk and Carrie were children. Unknown to each other when they meet as adults, they share a vision that cryptically predicts one day Hunting Hawk and Daughter of the Sun will join lives. And what the Powers decree becomes an inescapable destiny that will mock the vow of a ruthless old man in a most ironic way.

In this story set in Montana in the 1880s, both the hero and heroine are sort of victims of a thoroughly ruthless man, Noah Sinclair. Noah hates and fears his half-breed son, Hawk. And with good reason, the old man has destroyed Hawk's Cheyenne mother, his first wife. When one of the other characters says something to the effect that the old SOB ought to be shot, Hawk says, "the only reason that old man is alive is because he's my father." And that's a lot more family feeling than Noah has for his son. He plans to use Hawk's lethal skills to protect his empire and then get rid of him. Also, Carrie is nothing more to Noah than the means of getting himself a white heir. As she grows stronger throughout the story and begins to stand up for herself, the old buzzard begins to hate her as much as he does his son. When she does her "duty" by him, Noah will get rid of her too. But that is not fated to be. In the beginning of the book, the medicine dream that they both share-although they do not yet know each other and are a thousand miles apart at the time-is a guarantee that the couple are destined to be together. I loved this book. My only complaint is that I would have liked to have learned a lot more detail about the Cheyenne way of life. Henke's books are really good at that sort of thing. But I have hopes. This is only one in a series of books that will touch on the Cheyenne. And by the way, a truly dynamite read.

This is the story of two outcasts literally destined by the stars to be lovers. Hawk possesses the handsome aristocratic features that probably belonged to his father as a young man before Noah Sinclair became this hateful, embittered old man. And from his Cheyenne mother, Hawk inherited this sexy coppery complexion. So he's an outcast because of his mixed blood. The heroine, Carrie, ironically, is an outcast because she's just too fair and beautiful. But you won't hate her for it. Her aunt and uncle marry her off to Noah because they don't want her around as competition for their own less attractive daughters. But far from being the opposites they appear, both Hawk and Carrie are survivors - tough and gutsy. Although they have a hard time doing it, they outlast a host of vicious enemies (including a dandy villainess, a real "bad girl") only to finally confront each other - their own worst enemies. This is a western, but not a typical shoot-em-up (although of course there is some of that). Rather, this is a relationship story of two young people obsessed with one another, a typical romance theme but here complicated by a cultural divide. A very good read!
