Book Description

Social worker Jenny Cussler has a number of Native American veterans in her caseload and is attracted to their culture. When given the opportunity to attend a weeklong awareness camp on a reservation high in the mountains, she is eager despite the distance from her established city life.

Clint Hastings, a presenter at the camp, has no intention of straying outside his race for a relationship. But this perky redhead captivates his attention and constantly needs rescuing -- when she's not rescuing him from the clutches of the woman he managed to evade a year ago and who's back stalking him again.

Clint soon loses his heart, while Jenny is charmed but realizes how little they have in common. In the real world away from the mountain, there might not be a happy-ever-after ending. Is she ready to trade her pavement-bound existence for the reservation? Or would he be willing to give up his chosen lifestyle?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!!! December 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this latest book by Ms. McBride. I found myself instantly bonding with Jenny Cussler, the author's main female character, because she was so down to earth and had a few insecurities about her that made her so realistic. Ms. McBride didn't disappoint with this story and I highly recommend it. The author has a smooth, flowing writing style that's a pleasure to read and I have to say I eagerly look forward to reading any book she writes!

5.0 out of 5 stars A First Rate Romance December 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A wonderful, heartfelt story with real-life choices and conflicts. Ms. McBride penned a winner. Her settings and descriptions are vivid. I felt like I was on that beautiful mountain. Bess' characters come from two completely different backgrounds and races yet, Clint and Jenny have a connection that is strong enough to hold up against their differences. Jenny Cussler's Last Stand is another well-written gem from this author and I look forward to her next release.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Thought You Read It All . . . February 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
When I read the blurb on this book, I was excited. Love Indian men? Check. Love romance where opposites attract? Check. Love twists and turns in a story? Check, check, check. Per usual, Ms. McBride does NOT disappoint. What woman that has grandchildren wouldn't like to have the guts to go and do something worthwhile and different for a change? I, for one, don't know if I would have the guts to go on an adventure like Jenny did without really knowing what might happen but counting on what could. She expected to gain knowledge of the Native American culture and make a few friends. Mission accomplished. The unknown was the tall, dark and handsome Clint Hastings (pant, sigh, drool). He makes Jenny feel beautiful and desirable in spite of her belief that she is none of those things. Her lack of self-esteem and self-confidence is what makes you cheer on their relationship. The push-pull between this couple lends itself to an almost tantric romance without being blue. I thorougly enjoyed the story. The unique writing style consistently provided by the author is why she remains a "must read" author for this reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great romance in an interesting setting July 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At a training camp forgoes to deal with specifically Native American veterans, Jenny Cuddled and the tall dark and handsome man hit it off right away. The sparks fly really fast but there are a few complications. Celia has her eye on him as well and he is seen by Jenny a couple times talking to her. And he seems to believe the matchmaking she is trying to do for Steve is something else as well. When camp comes to a close will it be the end for them as well?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Week that changed three lives January 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bess McBride has created a love story between shy Jenny and Clint. Bess McBride presents us the reader with the dilemma; move out of your comfort zone-do something uncomfortable put on your dancing shoes-do something. How often are we to afraid to fail, too embarrassed because of what we think we should be instead of cherishing what and who we are? In Ms. McBride's works we often focus on the romance side-while this is great and true, it took me a deletion to realize that the deeper theme of this book wasn't about romance, it is about two groups that we tend to isolate Veterans and Native Americans. Somewhere in the book, someone comments about Indian Reservations as "only stopping when I need gasoline." This got me thinking how many times we just drive by things where people live. How many times have we all heard, "Glad I don't have to live there" or "look how beautiful they maintain that cemetery...look at those flags". Two groups who have so much in common yet are so different. Ms. Bride brings a deeper understanding with "welcoming home the veterans" I cried and I don't cry. So Bess McBride's Jenny Clussler's Last Standing is so much more- one needs to sit down and read a Goodread.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Light Read May 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the premise of this book- love at a Reservation retreat. Overall though it failed to deliver mainly because I found the heroine frustratingly shy. In some instances, with her inability to communicate, I couldn't figure out how she could possibly make it as a therapist and could be older than eighteen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jenny's last stand March 14, 2013
By Mary B.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved it. It had everything you would ever want from a love story with cultural differences, and one very jealous social worker bringing problems. There was quite a bit of shyness on Jenny's part which wasn't necessary after a while. She was a social worker/ mental health worker after all,but given her habitual problems with the opposite sex I guess that was understandable. Clint, a desert storm vet and social worker ( one typo that called him Cliff) was a wonderful hero, with his own issues, but with a tender heart . I was fascinated with the Native American customs.The story takes place in the Cascade mountains of Washngton where the VA workers from the western states gathered to learn more about the vets they worked with. Lots of steamy love scenes. I just loved this story.

More About the Author

A little bit about me: I made my first serious writing attempt at age fourteen when I shut myself up in my bedroom one summer while obsessively working on a time travel/pirate novel set in the beloved Caribbean of my youth, but I wasn't able to hammer it out on a manual typewriter (oh yeah, I'm that old) before it was time to go back to school. The draft of that novel has long since disappeared, but the story is still simmering within, and I have high hopes of finishing the adventure one day soon.

I was born in Aruba to American parents, and I lived in Venezuela until my family returned to the United States when I was twelve. I couldn't fight the global travel bug, and I joined the U.S. Air Force at eighteen to "see the world." After twenty-one wonderful and fulfilling years traveling the world, I pursued my dream of finally getting a college education. With a license in mental health therapy, I worked with veterans until I retired.

I write time travel romances as Bess McBride and short cozy mysteries as Minnie Crockwell. I can be contacted via email through my web sites at and where you can also sign up for my newsletters. I look forward to hearing from you!
