There is just something about forbidden love that draws me to the story every time, especially when it has to do with Native Americans and the many prejudices they suffered over the years. There was little to compromise when it came to love. If you married you either lived with the tribe and were persecuted, or you lived among the whites and were persecuted. At any rate, I find many historical battles quite fascinating as well as the way different cultures saw things such as marriage, family, and God. The part where the massacre took place was terrifying and I felt the horror of it. But I also saw what Meeker did to provoke the situation in the first place.
This book intrigued me because of the plot and conflict and I read it quickly. The beginning was fairly traumatic and I couldn’t help loving Jessie as a result. He suffered a lot over the years that it was easy to see why he was distrustful of people. I could also see the draw Shiloh felt toward him. There was something very passionate about Jessie that made me care about him. I also cared for Shiloh and appreciated her heart for people who were in unfortunate circumstances. The characters were well drawn out and the conflict kept me reading. And those ardent, searing kisses… whew! Kathleen Morgan sure knows how to stoke a romantic fire in her novels. This was a very enjoyable read!
