    I Also Recommend:

    "The Darkest Heart"is an appropriate title for this book because both the hero and heroine held their love for each other locked in the deepest recesses of their hearts. They hurt each other needlessly, but of course their love prevailed.

    Recently I re-read this book and I still love it! This is the story of Jack Savage and Candice Carter. Jack is a half-breed, part Indian and part White, kidnapped by the Apaches when he was a child and raised by them. He is at war with the two cultures within himself. Candice is the daughter of a White rancher. She has prejudices of her own against Indians. She runs away with her fiance, who promises to marry her just to get her away from her family and use her for his own purposes. Candice finds out about this and runs away from him thinking she killed him. Lost in the desert, she is rescued by Jack, who nurses her back to health.

    Candice is grateful to Jack for helping her, but afraid of him because he is part Indian, even though he has promised to see her home. During their time together, Jack is attacked by a large cat and hurt. Candice takes care of him, but when he seems better, Candice steals his horse while he is asleep and heads for home, leaving him in the desert. She never counts on Jack coming after his belongings, which of course is what he does.

    When Candice shows up at her home, she is questioned by her father and three brothers about what happened to her, but she lies and tell them that someone killed her husband and she got away. She never mentions Jack saving her in the desert. When he shows up asking for his horse, her brothers are appalled, because Jack is a half-breed. He says that she stole his horse. Candice confesses that he saved her life and she stole his horsee, but that he didn't harm her in any way. It doesn't matter. Being alone with him has compromised her reputation, because he is a half-breed. They want him gone, but being hurt and weak from loss of blood, he collapses and is taken to the barn. Feeling bad about what she did, Candice begs her brothers to take care of Jack's wounds, never knowing that no one has helped him at all until she sneaks into the barn that night and finds him bleeding and lying on a bed of straw. She takes care of him herself and is discovered by her brother Luke who has a little leniency toward Jack. He promises to see to his wounds and not tell the other brothers and their father, if Candice will stay away from the barn where Jack is. She agrees to do this.

    Much to her dismay, it has spread all over town what happended to her and her reputation is now in shreds. She ignores all of this knowing that she owes Jack for saving her life and wants to do the right thing. She checks on Jack again and finds him tied up. She unties him and he kisses her. She does nothing to stop him and wants the kiss as much as he does. She helps him to escape and thinks that this is the last time she will ever she him. Needless to say it is not the last time their paths will cross.

    This is a story of prejudice, war and the love of a lifetime that overcame it all. If you like stong, handsome, sexy heros and beautiful heroines with strength and courage, you'll love this book. It is as good today as it was when it first came out. Enjoy!
