Book Description

From New York Times bestselling author Janelle Taylor, the long-awaited third book in the Lakota Series. Transporting her readers to the Badlands of the Dakotas in 1858, New York Times bestselling author Janelle Taylor concludes her Native American epic with the tale of a warrior willing to accept his bloody destiny--but struggling with his desire for a forbidden woman... Threatened by the ever-encroaching Bluecoats, the Oglala Lakotas must strike hard and fast to ensure their tribe's survival. With the cunning and bravery befitting a chief's son, War Engle leads his hunting party on a raid, killing many soldiers and taking a white woman captive. Caroline Sims has hair as bright as the sun and the courage of a wildcat, sparking a forbidden attraction in the fierce warrior. In a land where danger lurks in every shadow and peace often comes at a deadly price, War Eagle and Caroline find themselves locked in a passionate battle for their lives--and their love...

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite nice July 18, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At times I wanted to scream at the book, because I was so frustrated with how little romance is actually in it. Until the very end all that is shared between the main caracters are a few stolen kisses. This book is frustratingly full of details about native american life, when what you really want to read about is the blossoming love between War Eagle and Caroline. The historylesson is interesting, but not what I bargained for when purchasing this book. On the positive side the book is actually wellwritten, well paced and full of beliavable secondary characters. What I do miss is a deeper insight into the mindsets of the main characters. Especially War Eagle has you guessing most of the time, which is a real shame.

Overall a nice read, if you are truly interested in the old ways of the native americans and do not mind that the romantic scenes are few and far apart, quite naively written and no hot details are revealed at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even the first chapter! July 3, 2010
By Samdog
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Apologies to the author, but this was a pretty poor effort. It seemed pretty much a stereotypical "Native American man meets white woman and they create their own special bond." kind of story. She's brave, headstrong and impetuous, and for some far fetched reason she's out in the middle of the prairie, with a bunch of soldiers. He and his tribe want to stop the white man from encroaching upon their sacred hunting grounds. He's been taught English by two different people and while the words,"lips the color of the setting sun" appear to be in his vocabulary, he hasn't learned the word "I". Really? Someone's been watching too many 1950's cowboys and Indians movies. I couldn't even make it past the first chapter, freebie or not.

1.0 out of 5 stars History Book or Romance? September 26, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Janelle Taylor has been one of my favorites since I started reading romance novels 20 years ago. I have always enjoyed her books but this one was a bore. I felt like I was getting a history lesson in American Indians instead of reading a romantic tale. So disappointing!

2.0 out of 5 stars Lakota Flower September 3, 2012
By kec
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Just finished the Lakota Series. I felt Lakota Flower left many questions unanswered i.e., did Wind Dancer ever become chief, did the tribe survive the indian wars, did David reach Texas and prosper, did Nehemana every marry and if so was it to Red Wolf... After finishing the last paragraph just wanted to say AND??? Wish their had been one more book to wrap everything up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! August 17, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always been interested in the culture of the North American Indians, so this book captured my attention, I was a bit put off with some of the other reviews written but bought the book anyway.
It took me a while to get into it but after the first few chapters I was hooked. I learned a lot about the culture of the Lakota Indians. Janelle also helped me realise just how they were treated by the white man.As for the romantic side, I thought it was wonderful and the build up to the end was just how it should have been.I have since found out that there are two books prior to this one and I have since had all three books shipped over to me. This is a collection well worth keeping.
Thank you Janelle for such a wonderful read, and I will be looking forward to reading more of your books!

3.0 out of 5 stars Love & Native American History August 12, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book because I got it free for my Kindle. I'm not a romance novel reader, but I enjoyed this book. If you're looking for hot, steamy sex, this isn't what this book is all about. The story itself is a foregone conclusion right from the start, but I could tell that the real tale was the history of the Lakota Indians during this period of time.

At times, this story read more like a history book and it was obvious Ms. Taylor was desperate to get in all the facts, much of which was unnecessary. Living in the northwest myself and knowing a little about the Native American culture, I feel the author was careful to depict life very close to how it really was during this time period.

I haven't got a burning desire to read more from this author, but I enjoyed this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing back a classic July 13, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book when it first came out in paperback and loved it. When I saw that it was now offered as a Kindle version, I grabbed it. I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed reading this story again. You just don't see books like this written now. Some recent reviewers of this book say they didn't enjoy it because there was too much history in it and not enough romance. I thought it was a very good blend. I just got back from a trip to the Black Hills and really enjoyed reading "how it used to be" vs "how it is today". Thanks to Janelle Taylor and her publisher for bringing this classic back to life with a Kindle version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite of her books June 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This trilogy is really ok. Her detail to history and customs is good and interesting but it is so redundant. Each book is the same story only the names are changed. It is a fast and light read. good beach book.
