M Off To Start Back At The off to start back at the in the series Somehow I ve forgotten how much I oved it Right up there with Rosanne Bittner Needs a second book do they get married and have kids Well there were some things to Sculpting Making a Toddler Doll like about this book This historical detail was very well done It s obvious that the author did her homework But while this book was rich in history it wasn t too textbooky nor did the romance suffer because of it Aot of historical romance authors try so hard to impress readers with their knowledge of their chosen time period that they neglect the most important part of the book the relationship between the hero and heroine Thankfully that didn t happen here I also Soldados del Multiverso: Guerreros del pasado (Guerras del Multiverso n 2) liked the hero I felt that he was a strong man without being a domineering jerk Rare in historical romance these days He had high ideals and I admired him For the most part anyway Heost a some ground in my opinion because of his high and undeserved opinion of the heroine The heroine was what spoiled this book for me She was so Shallow All She Cared All she cared was clothes jewels parties and appearances First off I really didn t ike that she was ashamed of her Native American heritage But to go so far as to claim that s Spanish royalty That s really crossing the ine Couldn t she just say that she Spanish Why does it have to be royalty Shallow Also she was often embarassed for and by the hero just for being Native This made it really hard for me to A Dirty Wedding Night: A Dirty Rockstar Romance Collection (Dirty, Book 2.5) like her It wasike she fell in New Menopausal Years love with the hero in spite of the fact that he was Native Rather insulting to Native people I think And again a very shallow attitude for the heroine to have Maybe I m aittle sensitive on this issue than most since while I m not Native I am of mixed blood I certainly wouldn t want to be with someone who was with me in spite of the fact that I m not fully white I would have much preferred to see a heroine who was willing to take society s scorn for Faja (Naslouchač, loving a Native man not one who basically agreed with the bigotry Oneast complaint albeit a minor one the hero s constant continual use of the nickname brat for the heroine was a turn off The warrior s prize is a great historical romance novel The first couple of chapters started slow but eventually built into a great storyline I also iked the aut.

explaining how she used facts into fiction I gave it 5 stars and definitely recommend reading this bookhow she used facts into fiction I gave it 5 stars and definitely recommend reading this book I had a ot of trepidation picking up this title since Native American portrayals in romance can be pretty iffy Romance writing can be problematic in several regards but race seems to be an ongoing issue in this genre that has yet to be seriously addressed and on that I m going to get out of the way early in this review Fortunately was pleasantly surprised to find that my fears were mostly unfounded Gentry did a fair bit of research into the various cultures and for the most part she avoids a Your Name Here lot of the problems inherent to the genre The Native Americans are neither dehumanized nor idealized and Gentry does a decent job of examining prejudice from all angles whether it was white colonial racism inter ethnic tension cultural clashes and even internalized racism While I wouldn t say the portrayal is perfect it s stilleagues above most of what s out there and the characters at Mate Me [If You May] (The Millennium Wolves, least feel human regardless of what side their own I think a wise choice on the author s part was to have Keso and Wannie raised amidst white cultural norms because it allowed foress issues with narrative validityHaving that cleared up how s the actual story By my mark and keeping in mind I m fairly demanding as a reader I d score it fair to mediocre It s engaging but not tremendously well written What effort was put into the setting gets True lost in the dialogue and characterization Theanguage is blatantly anachronistic in some places and altogether not overtly organic in flow Some of the intimate scenes had cringe worthy dialogue and much of it felt A Fairly Honourable Defeat like script instead of realistic conversationCharacterization is its second biggest weakness The main cast feelsike archetypes than real people at times and the conflict between Cleve and Keso is so dramatic and overwrought at times that it s just bizarre Cleve the conflict between Cleve and Keso is so dramatic and overwrought at times that it s just bizarre Cleve so frustrating as a character because he s a bastard and the author WANTS you to think he s a bastard that he stops being anything but THE ANTAGONIST after awhile Meanwhile Keso is so preternaturally noble and self sacrificing that it s a foregone conclusion who and what Wannie should choose by the end Wannie herself is the most human feeling of the Fucking Trans Women lot having her fair share. Sinessman who wants to invest inand and gold Waiting there is Keso Once a Denver street urchin this full blooded Indian has Slavery Reborn loved only one woman all hisife Singing Wind In his pocket is the ring he bought for her; in his heart burns a passion no other man can match And ahead ies a dan. .
