The desperate convict...

Wrongly convicted of murdering his wife, Nathan Chasing Elk has never lost hope of avenging her death and reclaiming his lost daughter. His only chance is to break free from prison-but with his escape comes a grave injury that threatens his life.

The prisoner of love...

Catharine Lyons is struggling to maintain the family ranch in the wake of her parents' untimely deaths. When Nathan shows up on her property, badly wounded and close to death, Catharine provides him with sanctuary.

Their Dakota dream...

As they grow closer, Catharine offers Nathan more than the healing of his body and mind. She agrees to join him on his journey into Lakota territory to avenge his wife's death. But as they trek through the dangerous West, they discover a passion just as untamed-one that will change their destinies forever.

    tense Indian romance

    It has been four years six months and counting since Jim Buckner arranged for Chasing Elk to be sent to Yuma Prison, a hell hole of abuse from the likes of guard Fat Tom. Only revenge and seeing his daughter Leah keeps Chasing Elk going. When an opportunity arrives to escape, he takes it, but is severely injured in the process. ---- With her parents recently dead and Apache Marteen wanting rancher Catharine Lyons as his woman, she so far she has refused him using the excuse that her man is coming for her though she knows she will not have much time left to say no. She either must return to Boston or he will take her as her brother Mark is no protection. When a near dead Chasing Elk reaches her ranch at about the same time as Marteen and his retinue of braves, she claims he is her husband. The stranger agrees. As Catharine nurses Chasing Elk back to physical health and he begins to work the ranch, an attraction between them arises. However, Marten wants him dead the law wants him in prison Chasing Elk wants his daughter Catharine wants his love. However, first his mind must heal if he lives long enough. ---- DAKOTA DREAMS is a tense Indian romance starring a courageous heroine and a battered male with demons screaming at him to avenge the death of his wife and to bring his daughter home, which he wants to believe, is Catharine¿s ranch. The character driven tale is loaded with plenty of action as the key players will converge in a showdown. Though the support cast seems somewhat one dimensional, Madeline Baker¿s latest nineteenth century star-crossed romance contains a fresh fun story line. ---- Harriet Klausner

    Engrossing Read

    Chasing Elk is determined to avenge his wife's death and recover his daughter. But when he finally escaped the Yuma prison, he wasn't planning on getting shot on the way out.

    This is a nice mix of a few historical facts about Native Americans and a love story. Nathan Chasing Elk is a good man, wrongfully charged. Ms. Baker makes his character very realistic. He is still grieving the loss of his wife and feels guilty because he hasn't been there for his daughter. He's also determined to get his daughter back and find the man who killed his wife.

    The other lead character, Catherine, is a young woman living in a strange land with a missing brother. She also has extreme challenges trying to keep the Apache chief from claiming her as his wife. Everyone in the story has some baggage from the past to settle. Watching how Ms. Baker's characters manage to get past the problems and work towards settling their lives down for the future is part of the fun of the read.

    The author puts her two lead characters together by need, but soon the sexual tension between them grows. Adding Nathan's daughter to the mix creates an even more interesting situation because she testified against him and is afraid of him, and she hampers the romance.

    The author's descriptions of the land paint a lovely picture in your mind and you can understand why the Indians wanted to retain the land they hunted and lived in. She's also very good at adding new side stories to the main story as you read along which enhances your interest in the story.

    The story flows well, the situations described are plausible and you're not sure just how this story is going to end until you read the last pages. It was a very good read.
