She and her trusted horse travel to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas – in other words, Hell – where she hopes to find a job. With the skills she learned from living with the tribe and her dead eye skills with a gun, she’s hoping to land a scouting job. There, she meets Paden Callahan, a seasoned traveler and military man who is looking for a replacement for his current scout, Dawson.
After being taken at such a young age, Hannah finds it better to be strong and live independently than take up a typical woman’s profession. Hannah has honed her shooting skills and has an aim better than most men, which astonishes everyone and angers those she bests. But, despite her skill and strength, Callahan still isn’t too sure a woman can handle the tough trail life and also isn’t too sure he can control himself around a woman this beautiful.
With little options to choose from, Callahan reluctantly allows her to come, but they both discover there are more dangers following Hannah than anyone realized.
"Between Heaven and Hell" is an alluring romance that captivates readers in a time period where Pioneers fought for land and Native Americans retaliated in order to keep what was their home. Jacqui Nelson’s characters are multi-dimensional and drift between bridging the gap between the two groups.
Hannah is an inspiring strong woman whose path represents the bridge between Natives and Settlers, and who spends most of the novel struggling to reconcile her two very different identities. Her life with the tribe has helped make her the woman she is, yet many of the settlers she must find a life with are those who do not understand, nor wish to understand, where she came from. Despite her personal battle and the difficulties she faces as a woman on her own, Hannah proves herself to be tough and resilient.
Callahan is also haunted by his past, though it differs greatly from Hannah’s and he fights to understand her and how to help her. The connection that develops between them despite their differences makes their relationship worth rooting for.
Nelson delivers a perfect, steady-paced book with poetic descriptions of romance and easy-to-follow fluidity of Callahan and Hannah's journeys. Those who love romance and hot sensual scenes, along with the Western historical fiction, will find themselves enamored with this novel.
When the two meet the sparks fly and tempters rise as these two dance around each other. Hannah is a very strong women rise with the Osage Indians that took her in when she was very young. Life has not been easy for her with her white skin, blue eyes and blonde hair. Even though there have been hard times due to her skin color some of the best memories she has ever had has been with her Osage mother and sister. Now on her own trying her best to stay alive and out of the reach of her Indian brother she is left little choice but to join a wagon train which is not easy since she is a white women that has lived with the Indians. Paden decided to move as far away from where is wife was killed by Indians. He is helping his father in law take a group to California and then he will be starting his life over on a little plot of land he hopes to build a business. A lot happens between these pages from attacks to finding the truth as well as heartbreak, and mean and nasty people.
Each seems to be holding secrets they do not want others to find out about. Paden’s is a biggy and will cause him lots of pain. Hannah’s hides hers in hope to keep her brother save. Each will have their past come up and slap them in the face as they face their hells and maybe their deaths. Both will have to decide what to do and the choices are not easy.
What really makes this a great story is the pace of the book which moves fast and steady from one suspense to another keeping the reader spellbound holding their breath. The romance is slow and steady it really sneaks up on these two. I love the baiting between them as they drive the other nuts. Both are bullhead, strong with a kind heart. When those they care about are put in danger they come out flying like a bull with a red flag flying in his face. They really complement each other and work well together. When times get hard they pulled together and become one without even know it.
The author gives vivid details showing us how tough the life was then and yet how strong you have to be to stay alive. There are times you just about want to cover your eyes and most likely would if this was a movie and other times when you say oh no run please get away. My heart was in my mouth more than once as I read. There are many conflicts that must be overcome as the author twists and turns right into your heart. What a very believable story that is sad, heartbroken but is still sweet leaving you with a smile. You will find more than one story between these pages of people who are racist not only to the Indians but other groups. There is a story of a broken family losing the one thing they whole dear and how they moved on. When the ending comes I found myself asking who is Sarah and then it came back to me all that she lost. I was so glad to see how her life turned out it was very touching. Once you pick up and start reading this you know why it won the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® Award. I will be reading again and again. I pick it for one of my favorite reads this year. If you are looking for historical romance full of action, excitement, which holds your attention this, is the book for you. I was so in love with the characters and the plot I did not want it to end.
