The Warrior’s Captive Bride is intriguing. Skylark is a medicine woman from the Crow Tribe. She is out gathering plants for medicines when she is spotted by Night Storm, a warrior from a neighbor tribe. He is immediately taken by her beauty and wants to make her his second wife. Before he could attempt to do anything about it, he is struck with an illness. Believing that Skylark is a witch who has cursed him, they meet again. Soon enough he realizes that he was mistaken and tries to convince her to help heal him. Sky isn’t like most of women of her tribe. She focuses on her healing abilities, caring for her father, and would love a husband and children. None of the men from her tribe seem interested in her and she refuses to marry a man with more than one wife. She is immediately drawn to Night Storm, but she won’t become a second wife. She will help heal him, but she is none too happy about the methods of accomplishing that. Storm is a warrior. This means that he is to be strong and can’t show weakness of any kind. He can’t tell anyone about his illness or he could be exiled from his tribe. He convinces Sky to become his bride, then she could return to her people once he is healed. She agrees on the condition that while she is there, he will not take another wife. What happens when they realize that they’re attraction for each other goes much deeper? As time goes on, the closer the two become and wish to never leave the other. However, there are many obstacles in their path. It is well-written and the historical aspects were well researched as it shines throughout the story. Native Americans have a unique culture and it was captured well. I do have to mention that there are some brief sexual (I quickly skipped over those parts) and spiritual content, but overall, it was a great read. The characters will capture your heart in an instant. You’ll laugh, cry, scream, and cheer all throughout. Highly recommended.

From the first page I was sucked right into this story! Jenna Kernan has a gift of making you feel like you are a part of the story... that you are there watching events unfold. Her descriptions are vivid, and her writing well-paced. When I finished reading "The Warrior's Captive Bride" I not only enjoyed the whole reading experience, but realized I had learned a lot also. I especially loved Skylark. She is a strong, character... sure in her talents, yet compassionate when it comes to healing. I loved the learning about her herbal medicines. You can tell Jenna Kernan did a lot of research for this book. I definitely recommend this book! Thanks Jenna! Well done!

You feel like you are there right there in the tribe amongst them! Crow warrior Night Storm is captivated by Skylark’s beauty when he first meets her. He wants to take her as his wife, but is promised to another, so she refuses. When a strange ailment strikes him and he can no longer function properly, he worries that Sky was a witch who cast a spell on him. He searches her out to find a cure! Skylark prides herself on her healing capabilities and has no idea why Storm thinks she would cause him harm. When she hears of his illness, she reluctantly agrees to return to his tribe with him as his fake wife. As they try to figure out how to cure him before his warrior status is called into question, they grow closer to each other and no longer want to part. When Storm’s secret gets out, will there be ill will aimed towards him from his tribe?

The Warriors Captive Bride is capitulating, entrancing and so realistic you are drawn in right away. Night Storm captures Skylark a medical healer he thinks is the witch responsible for his sickness. Skylark agrees to help heal his sickness by posing as his wife. Jenna's historical research of Native American history is awesome and brings so much meaning to the story I loved it. This story will capture your heart and keep you there until the end of the story. A keeper on my shelf to be read many times over.
