I am in love with the story of "Brave Wolf and the Lady." I have consistently loved Native American love stories since I was in junior high. Sadly, I think the modern age has grown passed this revered era. I was so excited to have received this story that I read this novel in one day. I am so happy with this book. I love it.
Gripping, heart-wrenching and beautiful "Brave Wolf and the Lady," tells the tale of a young woman who falls into the hands of a handsome Indian brave. I very much liked Mia's character. I felt compassion for her given the tragedies that Mia was forced to face. Mia did her best to keep her courage but I think Brave Wolf was able to provide her with the safety and the love that she needed the most.
The romance between the duo took its sweet time getting moving. I had to force myself to remain patient. In the meantime, I did have the low key chemistry of the couple to keep me occupied. This story I think is more about the openness of the Prairie. The landscape detail is brilliantly detailed and I found myself slipping away from my urban lifestyle and into the dangerous grasses of the Prairie.
My one complaint about the book is the ending. I thought the ending felt out of place. In fact, I think the ending felt very civilized. I am not stating that Native Americans are not cultivated and I loved Brave Wolf's character. I only feel like the ending did not have the action, the suspense that the book contained throughout of life in the open wilderness. I only wanted the ending to reflect the same tone. It did not.
Yet, I love this book. LOVE it! Read it!
He saved her life, then stole her heart….
To escape an arranged marriage, Mia Carlson, daughter of a U.S. senator, instead elopes with the man she loves. As they are escaping from her Virginia home, heading west, their wagon train is brutally attacked, leaving Mia alone and in grave danger. Rescue comes from a most unlikely source, a passing Lakota scouting party, led by the darkly handsome Indian, Brave Wolf.
Although Brave Wolf has consented to guide Mia to the nearest trading post, he holds himself apart from her, for his commitments lie elsewhere. But long days on the trail lead to a deep connection with the red-haired beauty. Yet, he can’t stop wondering why death and danger stalk this beautiful woman, forcing him to rescue her time and again. Who is doing this, and why?
One thing is clear, however: Amid the flurry of dodging assassin bullets, Brave Wolf and Mia come into possession of a powerful love. But is it all for naught? Will Brave Wolf’s obligations and Mia’s secret enemy from the past finally succeed in the sinister plot to destroy their love forever?
Warning: Sensuous romance and cameo appearances of Tahiska and Kristina from the book, Lakota Surrender, might cause a happily-ever-after to warm your heart.
