He'd been named Wind Warrior and called the savior of his Blackfoot people. But the mystical power that filled him awoke his brother's hatred and envy. Dull Knife would do anything to take what was his.
Slender and lovely, the white captive had long ago caught Wind Warrior's eye. She was the kind of beauty who could make a man forget all else in the exquisite pleasures of the night. But when Dull Knife plotted to steal her away, the rivalry between the two brothers would come to a head, a prophecy would be fulfilled and with her daring rescue, a great passion would be born.
Reviewer: The slow-paced romance between a Blackfoot man and white woman begins when the two are quite young—Our Heroine, Marianna, is only thirteen as the story begins. The boy who would get the name Wind Warrior was only sixteen.
O’Banyon brings them through events that shape their characters as they grow to adulthood and to mutual awareness and love for one another. It is a story with bad guys, good guys, ethnic issues and a light touch on the white world of the 1860’s.
Still, our heroine—who is given the name Rain Song—is loved by those who have her in their care and though she is threatened by much, she is largely unharmed once she reaches the Blackfoot people whom she will come to call her family.
It’s a sweet story with a little bit of UST, some lovely landscapes, and the sweet romance between a young couple who are able at last to be together.
I’ve already purchased the sequel, Wolf Runner. 🙂
