Mystic Cowboy is an exciting read with great Lakota traditions and customs. This book has a lot of emotion and heart, and it really makes the reader feel for these characters as not just characters in a book, but friends. This story also hints at what the great American Indian has had to go through with all that they have lost from the old ways, and how some have tried to adapt to how the world wants them to be. The problem with that is if you are not true to yourself, then are you ever really going to be happy?
Madeline is a wonderful doctor who has worked in the hospital and wants a change of scenery. Working on the reservation with the Indians seems like something that would definitely be different. She thinks she is prepared for working there, but she is in for a lot of fun surprises that are awaiting her.
Rebel is the Medicine Man for his people. When the new doctor comes to the clinic some people still would rather go to him. This of course causes tension between him and the new doctor before they ever really get to know each other.
Madeline believes in medicine and technology to help people. Rebel believes in the Lakota way and the land to help the people.
I really believe this author did her research to learn about the Lakota to write such a gripping book. I will definitely be looking out for any more stories written by this author.
One good man could drive her all kinds of crazy.
Just who does Rebel Runs Fast think he is? Dr. Madeline Mitchell, the new doctor on the White Sandy Lakota Indian Reservation, knows there’s a good answer to that question. Somewhere.
Sure, the Lakota medicine man is every cowboy-and-Indian fantasy she ever had, but he sends patients to sweat lodges instead of clinical trials, talks them out of flu vaccines. Even more irritating, he makes her heart race.
Rebel swore off the white man’s world—and its women—years ago. Madeline doesn’t speak the language, understand the customs, or believe he’s anything more than a charlatan. Yet she stays, determined to help his people. And he keeps finding excuses to spend more time at the clinic.
When he discovers her in the throes of dangerous heat stroke, Rebel’s efforts to cool her down set fire to a passion neither thought they wanted. But when the people start falling violently ill, the cultural gap stretches the connection between their hearts to the breaking point…
Warning: This book contains smoking-hot skinny dipping, emotional and emotionally satisfying sex, and a shirtless cowboy who is also an Indian.
