White Dove based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
In 1859 in the Nebraska Territory, Jeremy Jones tries to impress his family and his beloved White Dove by taking honey from a hive. However, he soon finds himself and an Indian lad in danger from a bear. White Dove saves his life. She beat Jeremy when they compete and taunts him by saying that he is not as good a warrior as she is. Jeremy realizes that the only way he will become husband to his beloved White Dove is to become a Lakota warrior because she believes her mate will be a great warrior. To White Dove¿s shock, he asks her father to teach him and her father assigns her to train Jeremy. Even more shocking, Jeremy takes to her teaching like a pro. However, will she ever accept him as that great warrior mate that Jeremy desperately wants to be? Susan Edwards ¿WHITE¿ novels (see WHITE WOLF and WHITE WIND) have quickly become one of the more popular Native Americana romance series in the genre. Her latest tale, WHITE DOVE, may be the best of the group as the plot provides her audience with a gender bender heroine and the only man who accepts her as she is. The return of the lead characters from other books in this series now shine in their own tale. Secondary characters making a brief appearance from previous and that adds a feeling of homecoming especially since the story line is what fans expect from a Susan Edwards story: exciting, non-stop action and romance. Still this Annie Get Your Gun rendition works because Ms. Edwards describes people readers want to meet and know. Harriet Klausner
Set in 1859, Nebraska Territory. The story followed Jeremy Jones and White Dove. Jeremy had been with the Lakota, Sioux for three years now. That was how long his sister, Jessie, had been married to the chief, White Wolf (White Dove's brother). That was also how long Jeremy had been trying to impress White Dove, in hope she would marry him. She was a s skilled as any male warrior and expected her mate to treat her with respect. She had no wish of her future husband stopping her from hunting and such. Jeremy slowly earned the respect of the tribe. His love of children showed. He even raised two bear cubs. (You'll have to read the book to find out how and why.)
Greed, jealousy, and betrayal showed up in the form of Waho, a Sioux from the Miniconjou branch. He cared nothing for White Dove, but vowed to marry her for the power of her family. He planned to be chief someday. The more Jeremy proved himself to White Dove and the tribe, Waho's jealousy and greed grew.
***** I found this to be an awesome read and highly recommend it to everyone! This series ROCKS!
