Overview

THE WHITE WOLF

In Boston he is known as Chase Remington, a bitter outsider, heir to a socially prominent dynasty that hides secrets more shocking than his own bastardy and half-breed blood. To fulfill the last wish of his mother, he returns to the High Plains, becoming the White Wolf, a fierce Cheyenne raider, protecting his father’s people from the whites who would destroy them.

THE WHITE WOMAN

Stephanie Summerfield is a Boston heiress who has loved Chase since childhood. Her engagement to him sends shock waves through society, especially when he vanishes mysteriously after his mother’s death. Alone, her reputation in shambles, she weds a mercenary Baltimore cavalry officer and attempts to rebuild her life in the far West…until she is kidnapped by the infamous White Wolf.

THE LITTLE BIG HORN

In the Valley of the Greasy Grass, Chase and Stephanie learn what the Powers have decreed. They are destined to be lovers…if they can survive the vengeance of her brutal husband, the twisted hate of his uncle, and the attacking Seventh Cavalry led by the Long Hair, Custer. See the Battle of the Little Big Horn through the eyes of the Indians who were the ultimate victims.

Editorial Reviews

Romantic Times - Kathe Robin
“Few authors write Indian romances and captive/captor novels like Shirl Henke…adventurous, sensuous, emotionally intense and highly entertaining. She is a true shining star of the genre.”
Publishers Weekly - book reviewer
“Plot developments reveal many aspects of frontier life from an unsparingly honest perspective. A most intriguing twist is an account of Little Bighorn told from Native American perspective. Through the intensity of her writing and her thorough research, Henke makes the most of the genre.”
www.UndertheCovers.com - Kathee Card
“Shirl Henke ranks in the top ten American authors…Endless Sky’s characters come alive, caught in a breathless spell of intrigue, deceit and betrayal. The reader turns the pages, unable to look away as the tale unravels like a thick ball of yarn. Shirl Henke’s name on the cover is a guarantee of excellence.”
AmazonUK - Good Stuff
“One of my favorites…the main characters are both believable and likeable, the sex scenes are torrid and the action keeps you turning the pages.”
Amazon - Mermaid reviewer
“A vivid style…a great book if you want an easy read to be intelligently written.”

    A Dazzling, Action-packed, Historical Romance!

    Chase and Stevie are star-crossed lovers, so star-crossed that at times I found myself wondering how Henke was going to get a happy ending out of their story. (Not to worry, she does.) Very early in the novel, Chase's uncle Burke tries to have his nephew assassinated. So much for familial devotion! Burke Remington appeared in SUNDANCER. There he was just a smarmy politico. In this story the man is truly a sick monster. The army officer that Stevie marries on the rebound after half-breed Chase goes off to rejoin the Cheyenne is little better. It is difficult to say whether Phillips gets more satisfaction out of killing Indian women and children or tormenting his wife. Then, when Chase-now White Wolf, the Cheyenne raider-kidnaps Stevie and carries her back to his clan, the two are caught in the squeeze the railroads and army are applying to exterminate the High Plains Indians. In fact, the lovers are at the Little Big Horn when Custer bumbles into that mass of Sioux, Cheyenne, and their allies.

    In spite of all their trials, the love shared by Chase and Stevie only grows stronger. And while the tide of history cannot be overcome, the villains can be. You'll want to cheer when these creeps get what's coming to them. (Okay, maybe the villains are a bit over the top, but I guarantee that you will be delighted at the way Stevie is freed from the sadistic Hugh Phillips.) All in all, this was an excellent book that will stand up to multiple readings.

    A Great Read

    This is a great historical romance, a little long, but a great read. There is a lot of action and adventure, a lot of scheming and corruption, and a lot of interaction between the American settelers and the push to force the American Indians onto reservations or plain out annihilate them.
    The romance between a half-breed Boston aristrocrat and Cheyenne warrior known as White Wolf formerly Chase the Wind (Chase Remington) and the Boston Socialite Stephanie Summerfield is a very exciting interaction.
    Throw in the Calvary at the time Custer is making a name for himself along with another mercenary cavalry officer wanting fame by marring money and you get a great story.

    Historical romance you can sink your teeth into

    I'm so thankful for this Nook and ebook trend. It's brought back authors who write real historical romance! I confess that I don't read much of the new "historicals." They just aren't...well, "meaty" enough for me. No fear of that in this one. Shirl Henke's "Endless Sky" is an entire butcher's shop. She gives you the reluctant love of the half-breed Chase Remington and his childhood sweetheart Stephanie (Stevie). And then weaves this into the fabric of everyday life and customs of Chase's band of Cheyenne Indians. The sections of the book about the Native American lifestyle and setting are idyllic and simply fascinating. And the next must be a first - Henke puts Chase and Stevie at the battle of the Little Big Horn, where you see the battle through the eyes of the Indians. These warriors are not fighting for honor; they are fighting to protect their families. Then, Henke gives you a couple of the most loathsome villains you'll ever run across. Believe me, you will relish it when they get their just "rewards." And, of course, a happy, if somewhat poignant ending. This is the sort of historical romance you can read on several levels and all of them are thoroughly enjoyable. An A+ read.
