Brandi’s Review:

I finished this book not more then two minutes ago and needed to share my feelings while they were still fresh.

I'm not sure if this book touched me deeply because I am part Native American or that I live in an area populated with Native Americans, but I have always felt a connection to the stories I have read. I wrote a very long, thoroughly researched paper ( before Wikipedia! ) on Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce, and the feelings that were produced dur

Meet the Author

I grew up in Southern California, but my spirit has always been in the wide open plains of the Heartland. When I write, I see the images so clearly, it's as though I'm there. My stories flow from the heart, and when someone tells me they like my work, I am content.
Sometimes I think I was born writing, and have been doing so since I could put pen to paper. My first efforts at short stories began when I was in the first grade, and I took a sabbatical to raise a husband and two sons, then returned to the craft I love.
I write for pleasure, mainly western historical with Native American Heroes, the occasional contemporary romance and also bit of whimsical fantasy. My heroes are always modeled after my late husband, whose Chickasaw heritage inspires me. Alpha heroes are the only kind I write, and they have to be compassionate, passionate and intelligent or they never make it to the page. My published work includes Contemporary Western,Historical Native American Romance and I'm published in several anthologies as well.

    A good story

    But the love scenes were so vague and abrupt that I though i had accidently skipped some pages. Next to the quality of the rest of the story, these abrupt, two sentence scenes seemed way out o place.

    The One Hundred Romances Project Review

    I finished this book not more then two minutes ago and needed to share my feelings while they were still fresh.

    I'm not sure if this book touched me deeply because I am part Native American or that I live in an area populated with Native Americans, but I have always felt a connection to the stories I have read. I wrote a very long, thoroughly researched paper ( before Wikipedia! ) on Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce, and the feelings that were produced during the research impacted me so much as a student in junior high that anytime I read a book or watch a movie that tells about the struggles of the Native Americans, it tugs at my heart to this day.

    And this book was no different. This was a beautifully written tale of a Lakota tribe and their journey to be free to love and live life in a simple way. The love that was shared by Thunder Heart and Victoria in this story was enchanting and even though the couple were polar opposites, it proved that love and soul mates can happen when and where you least expect them. And when love is that deep, nothing can keep you apart. I loved this story so much, I plan to read it again and I hope that many readers take the journey that starts in a lonely hot plain and ends up in the love filled cold mountains.

    A Rare and Lovely Read

    This book touched me on many levels. As I read of the growing relationship between the heroine and the Lakota people she found herself traveling with, I was moved by the gentle handling of the subject. The author created a believable world where everything came together seamlessly. Victoria Abernathy and Thunder Heart shared an attraction that blossomed into love, but their journey was more than this. They had to learn about each other in ways people of the same culture would not. It gave them a better footing, I think, to grow into a lasting relationship. Ms. White did a marvelous job with character development, story line and obviously did her homework and research. I recommend this book and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
