Editorial Reviews


"Anderson shows a lot of insight into what happens when ambition supersedes love, the problems of environmental pollution and the lengths a parent will go to save a child." RT Magazine: 4 Stars

"A man fleeing his heritage and a woman who embraces hers sets sparks flying, the pages blazing and the tension soaring in this sexy relationship-centered story that also touches on current social and environmental issues." Library Journal

"Pick up A Man of Distinction and explore the nuances in this amazing story told by Sarah M. Anderson." Cataromance: 5 Stars

A Man of Distinction" is exactly my type of Harlequin Desire. It is a heartwarming romance with well-rounded and lovable characters. I could not put this book down, and I was quite sad that I was able to read it so quickly. Fans of category romances, should not miss this one.--Romance Novel News Recommended Read

I loved the amount of chemistry that the leads had between them, I loved the happy family and I sobbed at parts near the end. If you like secret baby stories try this one and definitely try this series. -- Scorching Reviews

This is Four and a Half stars. I do wish we had the capacity to do partial stars.

I won this book in a blog contest and after reading the last two books in the series I had it opened seconds after it hit my inbox. And that was it for the next two hours. Sarah M Anderson grabs your interest and never lets up the whole way through the story. Her characters are amazing. You can't help loving them right from the first moment. Sure they are stubborn and feisty and made mistakes but they are people you want to know.

Tanya is the girl who stayed at home, never sure enough of Nick's love to take the risk of leaving 'the rez'. Especially as she believes that the way to improve things for her Lakota people is to stay and fight for them.

Nick is the boy who left to make something of himself, to make sure he had the good things of the world he saw only on TV as a child. He thinks you can take the Indian out of the boy but even at the top of his game as a lawyer he starts to realise that for some people changing your name and cutting your hair still doesn't change what and who you are.

Now Nick is back home he might get a chance to see that isn't such a bad thing. Especially when he sees a wary Tanya again and discovers that when he said goodbye after their last meeting, he left her with more than a bad taste in her mouth.

And speaking of a bad taste in the mouth. There could be a whole lot of that going on with suspicions that a Gas company has contaminated the tribes water supply.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although Nick has left the reservation to become a successful environmental lawyer and leave the life of a dirt-poor Indian behind, he must go back to gather evidence against a fracking operation that may be polluting the water and harming the people of the reservation. He is also drawn back to Tanya, his former girlfriend, who refused to come with him when he left. She wanted to stay and make a difference, while he wanted to get as far away as possible.

Now, Nick discovers that his last encounter with Tanya produced a son. The idea of having a family with Tanya feels right, but he doesn't think she will come to live in his world in Chicago. He also doesn't think he can fit in on the reservation anymore. The attraction between them is as steamy as ever, but can they make it work?

This one will tug at your heartstrings, as little Bear battles health problems that may be caused by the pollution. But you'll be rooting for Nick and Tanya to find a way to keep their family together.

A Man of Distinction is hot book. Thier are a lot of sex scenes that I skimmed over.
This book has a lot of layers to it. Enviroment theme,poor medical coverage for those in need,wealth & power,possesions,poverty.
Nick Longhair is now a rich enviromental lawyer that lives in a high rise condo in
Chicago. He dates the owner's daughter. Has made it in the world. Then he gets a case that deals with a case of poisoning the water of a certain area on the reservation. He is told its your people go take care of it. Realizes is boss is predjuce.
Nick walks into the reservation office and is greeted coolly and professional by the receptionist.Tanya Rattling Blanket.
Tanya is his old girl friend they last saw each other 2 years ago. They had one more night together and then he went back home to Chicago. He does not know why she is acting like they are strangers or hurt.
Nick family was really poor when he was growing up and did not have the best care of him. Nick always talked about leaving and getting rich one day. Tanya is the one who wanted to stay on the reservation.
Tanya is now a single mother of a little boy who does not talk and hear so well. They call him bear. No one realizes and know that Nick is the father because of how small he was when born.
When Nick realized that he was the father he fell in love with Bear. Wanted to give him everything that he wanted when he was young. But first he wanted to get him into see a doctor. The one Tanya had been referred too but could not get in because of lack of money.
Nick Threw his power and money at the doctor and got in that week. With all the tests he wanted done that day. Nick knew what the law suit was claiming and he was afraid that his son might be his best evidence for proving damage.
