Savage Heat by Nan Ryan

A kidnapped young woman finds she has nothing to fear but her own heart
The toast of Chicago society at eighteen, Martay Kidd is too wild to be satisfied with a life spent in parlors and ballrooms. Bored with the big city, the slender beauty hops a westbound train to join her army general father in the frontier country of Colorado. But when she arrives in Denver, she becomes the unwitting target of a Sioux warrior named Night Sun, who seeks revenge against Martay’s father for slaughtering his family years before. Night Sun abducts the general’s daughter, stealing her away to a world that is far rougher, and far more exciting, than she could have ever imagined.  Though stubborn, strange, and violent, Night Sun is no match for the fiery Midwestern debutante. And it will not be long before the mistress of the ballroom has him dancing to whatever tune she calls.

About the Author

Nan Ryan (1936–2017) was an award-winning historical romance author. She was born in Graham, Texas, to Glen Henderson, a rancher postmaster, and Roxy Bost. She began writing when she was inspired by a Newsweek article about women who traded corporate careers for the craft of romantic fiction. She immediately wrote a first draft that she refused to let see the light of day, and was off and running with the success of her second novel Kathleen’s Surrender (1983), a story about a Southern belle’s passionate affair with a mysterious gambler. Her husband, Joe Ryan, was a television executive, and his career took them all over the country, with each new town providing fodder for Ryan’s stories. A USA Today bestseller, she enjoyed critical success the Literary Guild called “incomparable.” When she wasn’t writing, she was an avid sports handicapper, and a supporter and contributor to the Shriners Hospitals for Children and Juvenile Diabetes since the 1980s. Ryan passed away peacefully in her sleep, surrounded by her proud and loving family.

Martay was a flirt almost to the point of slut, and Night Sun a playboy.... A little strange, especially the plot. Do not read unless u have exhausted all othe options of Native American romance.

I really like this book. I read this book years ago and I'm so happy that they finally came out in nook format. The story is about Indian half breed that kidnapped the daughter of the general that had attacked his village when he was a child. Needless to say, the story started out as Night Sun seeking revenge but instead falling in love with his beautiful captive Martay and vice versa. I highly recommended. It made me cry!

This historical romance takes place when most Indians were losing their land and being put on reservations in the late 1800’s. Jim Savin, also known as Night Sun, was a half-breed who attended Harvard but maintained his Lakota connections.  He kidnapped a military captain’s wealthy teen daughter, Martay, to get revenge for his mother’s death; his grandmother’s blindness and a long scar that he has on his side. They all happened during a camp raid when he was very young. He wrote a ransom letter but it never reached the father.  Martay and Night Sun battle it out.  Eventually, they fall in love and there are some pretty steamy scenes after she is taken further into Indian Territory.  Night Sun goes back to face the father and many surprises await him when he returns to Denver to face Captain Kidd. Great read!

I really enjoyed reading this story!  Romance, mystery, steamy sex and difficult situations to work through.  The ending could have used a bit more punch, but it was really good overall.

which as a teen i bought and hid from parental view only to discover i was a few eras behind time and Peyton Place was being banned in Boston. Ever wonder the true story of Crazy Horse's mother ? In a few cultures the bride is "kidnapped" so it was considered stimulating even then. One of my favorite movies is Wind and the Lion where the shiek kidnaps both mother and two children and how the relationship skips sex to family.
