I've read this book many times. "A Promise of Thunder" is another great book from Connie Mason. It takes place in September, 1893 during the Cherokee land rush in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Grady "Thunder" Stryker and Storm Kennedy clash after a stray bullet in a gunfight hits Storm's husband. Storm loses her claim to Grady, and he gives her an offer she can't refuse. To keep her land, she has to marry him and take care of his motherless son from his first marriage. She grudgingly agreed only to fall in love with him. But there's an obstacle... the sister of his dead first wife has come to deliver his son to him and plans to stay and get between Storm and Grady. The love Grady and Storm have won't allow it, and the need to separate the intruding woman from their relationship (and the budding relationship between Storm and Grady's son) leads all the way to Wyoming and Grady's parents' farm. This wonderful book is the sequel to "Beyond The Horizon", the story of Grady's parents, Swift Blade and Shannon Branigan.

It's free so I couldn't help myself. After reading the first couple of pages, I felt there was a lot of potential here and I do like stories with a NA hero and a white heroine just because of the differences.

BUT the plot here gets lost like crazy between all the sex and the hero inserting his fingers all up in the heroine and introducing her to orgasms. After the first time it just became completely eye-rolling. Enough already. "Put me inside you, touch me, what are you doing to me?, here a finger, there a finger, everywhere the hero's whole hand is up to the wrist inside the heroine. Good grief, Ms. Mason.

During the OK, land rush, Storm Kennedy and her husband Buddy are in town to stake their claim of land and start their newly married life. Indian Renegade Grady "Thunder" Stryker is also in town doing the same but the pretty blond Storm catches his eye. Storm's typical for the time and very high and mighty and extremely snobby and naive as all get out.

Stryker's reputation precedes him wherever he goes. After losing his pregnant wife to a rape/murder attack by white men, he's held all white people in contempt despite being the son of a half white-half Sioux and a Irish woman. After his wife's death, he goes on the warpath to find her killers and makes more than a few enemies because everyone has friends. So everywhere he goes someone's out to kill him for killing their buddy.

During such a meeting, a stray bullet kills Storm Kennedy's husband. Naturally she's angry at the Indian because it's always his fault right? Being Indian and all, he's the cause for all wrong in the world as usual.

Grady though is mystified by Storm's looks. She's pretty much a huge, snobby biotch.

This book is really a 3.5 for me. The introduction of the Native American issues makes me want to investigate historical facts about how half-breeds were treated in the 1890's. I admire Storm and her determination to be true to herself and to own her own soul. Mason treats that story line with as much respect as Grady' s sense of manly honor. I recommend this book.

Having received an Android tablet for a gift, I am new to the world of Kindle books on Connie Mason is a romance writer I am familiar with and usually love her books. The brief description of the story caught my interest, I love anything historical (western, cowboy, pioneer)so I purchased it. Soon I was reading it and found out that the book description was a bit off.

Grady (known as Thunder) is trying to heal his heart and soul from the tragic loss of his wife. Embracing the Indian side of his heritage after her death, he goes to live with the people, turning renegade for a few years and is told in a vision that he will only be healed in the bosom of a storm. Some how he ends up in Oklahoma a few days prior to the land rush. His past catches up with him on the street and an innocent bystander is killed. Then he meets the new widow, the wife of the bystander, Storm Kennedy. As was the plan, Storm goes ahead and participates in the land rush that her and her now deceased husband had come to Oklahoma for. Grady feels protective of the women named Storm, partly because the bullet that killed her husband was meant for him and partly because he wonders if she is the Storm that the vision spoke of. He knows the land well and ends up joining in the land rush as well. No spoiler, they end up staking claims next to each other.

Through a set of circumstances, they end up marrying each other. Grady needs a mother for his son, Storm needs a home to save her claim. The rest of their story deals with their struggles against life, against each other, and against people. They learn that they are stronger than they ever thought possible, learn that they can fall in love again, can be hurt again.

With out giving away too much of the details...

In 1893 the town of Guthrie Oklahoma was bursting at the seams, people had gathered for the Cherokee land rush, millions of acres were being made available to settlers for free. Amongst their number were Storm Kennedy and her husband Buddy. While waiting for Buddy to return to her, he had gone looking for a place for them to stay the night. She was unaware that she had caught the eye of Grady Stryker also known as Thunder. He was part white part Sioux. Being of mixed blood commonly referred to as a breed he was looked down upon by most people. Grady has a fearsome reputation as a renegade and gunfighter, known for his fast draw. He is constantly challenged by other men hoping to make their own reputation by killing him. This is what happened this day in Guthrie. Grady wasn't looking for trouble but it found him. Unfortunately a stray bullet hit and killed Buddy Kennedy as he was returning to his wife Storm. Devastated Storm decided to still join the race for a plot of land. She had rejected the offer of money from Grady blaming him for her husbands death.

When the race for land begins Grady gets to the plot of land that Storm had wanted for herself, and is forced to stake out a neighbouring plot. Though she is unhappy at being in such close proximity to the man she blames for her husbands death. Storm pays for and has built a cabin and is having a well dug, otherwise she has to cross Grady's land for water. There is a land speculator in town looking to buy up land from the settlers he has clients ready to pay. Though not many take up his offer. He decides to use underhand tactics to get Storm's land. He sends men to frighten her, but Grady comes to her rescue. Then when her cabin is damaged by fire, Grady insists that to survive she must marry him.
