New York Times bestselling author Catherine Anderson presents the first novel in her Comache series—a powerful historical romance about a man and a woman caught between two worlds…
Orphaned seven years ago after witnessing the brutal murder of her parents at the hands of the Comanche people, golden-haired Loretta Simpson still lives in terror that the warriors will return—her fear so powerful, she is no longer able to speak a word.
Called the U.S. Army’s most cunning adversary, Hunter of the Wolf believes that Loretta is the “honey-haired woman with no voice” of ancient prophecy—the one he must honor for all eternity.  But Loretta can only see Hunter as the enemy who has stolen her, refusing to succumb to his control, or his touch.
Despite the hatred intensifying between their peoples, Loretta and Hunter gradually find their prejudices giving way to respect, then flaring into feelings too dangerous to express. In the midst of such conflict, it will take all the force of their extraordinary love to find a safe place...

The story of Loretta and Hunter and battles of their different worlds was such a compelling story. I couldn't put this book down. My heart laughed, loved and cried throughout this great book. As usual, Catherine Anderson hooked me on the first page. There were so many different scenes that touched me. The sadness, the frustration and the love of all in the story brought me into their lives as only great characters and great story would. The way she let this story unfold, with a realism that gave you front row seat to all of it, will forever make this book one of my most favorite Catherine Anderson books.

This story really sucked me in. It had everything: a bit of adventure, history, culture, and romance all combined. I enjoyed the dynamics between the characters, the personalities of Loretta & Hunter, and the historical information made it really come to life for me. I absolutely loved every page. It was one of those books where you can't wait to get to the end because it's so gripping and emotional, yet you don't want to finish it because then it will be over. Luckily there are three other books in the series that will help console me now that I have arrived at the final page. I've only just started reading Catherine Anderson and I have to say she is one author that hasn't disappointed me. Her characters are so three dimensional and you can't help but sympathize with them and root for them when they're facing difficult times. I definitely encourage people to read this book.

Hunter and Loretta. I can picture this fierce warrior and his stubborn captive. Hunter is really a strong and exciting character.

A pretty good writer, but strange. Why would this woman go back again and again to the home of the uncle who tried to rape her and was only stopped by the Indian love interest? I don't think any woman has ever been as fickle and screwed up as this character. The frequent references to Catholicism and nipples are strange, too.

A beautiful poignant story of love and overcoming cultural differences ¿Comanche Moon¿ mad for a memorable read. Hunter was an alpha male hero who does what he has too to get what he wants. It took him a bit to warm up to Loretta, but once he did he fell hard. He fell in love with her and even though he could have taken her whenever he wanted he waited for her to be ready. Hunter was patient and kind with Loretta. Loretta did not have great experiences with the Comanche in the past and because of this steadfastly fought any feelings of affection she had for Hunter. I really liked her she was strong and very brave. The relationship between her and her cousin Amy was very sweet and you could tell that they had a strong bond. The relationship between Hunter and Loretta was sweet and heartwarming. They had many obstacles in their way, but were able to find their way back to one another against all odds. For a sweet and heartwarming read check out ¿Comanche Moon¿ by Catherine Anderson.

big fan of Anderson, espeically the Kendrick/Coulter/Harrigan series. The prophecy i thought was romantic which made me really want to read it. Great at first but slowly got worse. I could deal w/ the fact Hunter had a wife with child who was killed, i sympathized. As i learned more of Hunter, my feminist side kicked in, ready to give him a piece of my mind. Though Hunter is kind and wise at times, he believes that women should always obey the men and that a man can use his strength on a woman if she doesn't obey -- he didn't believe that women should be abused but he still used his strength a couple of times to hold Loretta down. I was suprised and angry that Anderson made Hunter that way and that Loretta could fall for him despite it. In all other Anderson books, the heriones wouldn't deal with that, it would be the deal breaker! Espeically in the Kendrick/Coulter/Harrigan series, the men never used their strength againest the women in any way. Again, the prophecy was romantic, but i wonder if in real life, though overall Loretta and Hunter are good people, they'd actually fall in love. Hunter would always have the final word. Well-researched but Hunter is my least favorite hero out of all of Anderson's main men.

Great love story of two who found each other in a time when people were unable to look past social norms of the era.

I thought this was a okay novel from Catherine Anderson. It wasn't up to her other books, but still Comanche Moon was a good read.

This was my first ever Catherine Anderson book and it will be far from my last. I devoured this book and every word within it. Simply put, Anderson is a truly wonderful storyteller, perhaps even my favorite, and this story proves it better than any other. Now on to Camanche Heart!

My All-time favorite Native American Series. Poignant love story, clashing cultures, victory over abuse and great dialogue. Have read each book of this series more times than I can count! Highly recommend the series for those who enjoy heroes/heroines of time past.

Catherine Anderson has long been a favorite author of mine, and I have yet to read a book of hers that I haven't loved; I am eagerly looking forward to reading all the books in this series!

I could not put this book down. It was the perfect blend of romance, history, and drama. After reading a similar hearbreaking Comanche romance by another author, this book offered the hope and happy ending I was needing. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!!

Although I read this story several years ago in paperback, it is still a really well written book. As a matter of fact because of how well i enjoyed the book, i wound up buying it again in ebook format along with the sequel.
