If you think you only like contemporary love stories, think again. Karen kay writes fabulous historical love stories that you just cant put down. Sexual but not erotica, she doesnt cross the line and its always between two people who are in love and destined to be together. Karen kay rocks.
This was my favorite of Karen Kay's books. Overall,her greatest appeal is how she writes the male lead. They convey strength, vulnerability, sensuality, intelligence and humor. She really makes you feel the emotion between the hero and heroine. Ms. Kay communicates shivers of pleasure to her readers by the hero's simplest look! In this particular story, the conflict of duty vs. desire between Lone Arrow and Carolyn is well-done.
I enjoyed this novel, it is one of those that once you start reading it, you don't want to stop. i highly recomend this to all karen kay readers, even if you haven't enjoyed her novels' before.
In 1866 in the Montana Territory, eleven years old Carolyn White watches her family and the other wagon train travelers die from cholera. Frightened, Carolyn feels hopeless until the ¿whirlwind¿ gently guides her to sixteen-year-old Crow, Lone Arrow. He saves her life from a bear by forcing her to enter a cavern filled with forbidden treasure. He warns her to take none of the artifacts as a curse will follow her if she does. Finally he escorts her to the safety of a nearby fort. Almost a decade later, Carolyn¿s adopted parents face foreclosure of their land after a string of bad luck. Carolyn believes her pilfering a gold arrowhead from the sacred cave has caused the misfortune. She returns to the Bighorn Mountains to find Lone Arrow' in order to return the stolen item. Lone Arrow is protector of the mountains especially the sacred treasure cave. He wants to marry Carolyn, but seemingly distrusts her more than he loves her. Fans of Indian historical romances will want to read LONE ARROW¿S PRIDE as the story line focuses on the relationship between Carolyn and Lone Arrow. The tale never loses sight of the prime theme as if the plot was the minimum but critical prime path of a pert chart. The lead couple is a delight and the support cast provides either depth to understanding the key duet or propels their tale forward. Karen Kay furbishes a strong tale that deserves plenty of kudos.
