About the Author

I am Doreen Owens Malek, author of over forty books and lifelong fan of romantic fiction. I live in PA with my husband and college student daughter, a mini dachshund and a sun conyer parrot. I would like to tell you a little about myself. 
I came to writing by a circuitous route, starting out as an avid reader of JANE EYRE and WUTHERING HEIGHTS and GONE WITH THE WIND and REBECCA and any other similarly themed books I could find. I first worked as a teacher and then graduated from law school when I desired a more lucrative and independent career. I had always been discouraged from pursuing a writing career by the volatile nature of the business and the relatively poor chance for success. But the realization that I needed a focus for the future encouraged me to do what I had always wanted to do. I sold my fledgling novel to the first editor who read it, and I have been writing ever since. I have written all types of books for all types of people, but my favorite literary pursuit is and always has been romance. Nothing is as rewarding as hearing from my readers, so please use my website to communicate your thoughts and criticisms, as I am always eager to learn from you. 
A romance novel rarely disappoints me: in an uncertain world filled with tragedy and sadness, reading about an appealing woman finding a strong man to love her and share her life is the perfect escape. I like to read and write stories in which the main characters overcome obstacles to get together, and then stay together because their mutual devotion cannot be denied no matter what else is happening around them. They always HELP each other and reinforce the quaint but enduring notion that love conquers all - at least in the fictional universe of my imagination. So pull up a chair and take down a book- or pick up a Kindle- and join me in a world where the heroes are tough and headstrong but never boorish and the heroines are feminine and sympathetic but never helpless.

This book caught my attention right from the start, and there was no putting it down from then on.

Andrew Fox was a Half Breed Seminole Indian, raised by his Indian father. He was also born a bastard. His mother (a Boston socialite) and father had a short affair, but she left his father behind and went back to Boston without even so much as giving his father a goodbye. Nine months later she returns just long enough to drop the baby on his door step, and to say that she doesn't want to ever have anything else to do with him. His father was so heart broken, because he really loved this woman. It's just too bad that she never wanted anything else to do with him, after their brief torrid affair had ended..

From then on Andrew was raised by his Indian Family. He's had a rough up bringing because he wasn't white nor was he pure Indian like the rest of the family. He was tormented and ridiculed by almost everyone in town. When he was sixteen he left the town and took on high risks jobs. Now he's back home again, working as one of the highest paid, and well sought after Bounty Hunter. He's rough , tough, and let's no one get close to him except his grandfather, Eli Fox.

Lucinda Warren comes into town to do a thesis paper on Old Indian Rituals, in order to get her Doctorate Degree. Cindy gets what she needs to finish her paper, but she also gets a whole lot more then that when she suddenly catches Drew's attention. At first he thinks she's just like all the other white women he's been around, woman just like his own mother, who he's still trying to come to terms with. But soon he finds there is so much more to her, and she is nothing like the woman who gave birth to him.

This was a sweet short story that I read in about an hour. Like Linda Howard's Mckenzie's Mountain, a naive, untouched teacher meets a rough and tumble half breed with a chip om his shoulder. It's a romance, and as such, didn't feature a lot of hot steamy sex which was to its credit. The unexpected vulnerability of both characters was pleasing and I enjoyed the slow unfolding of their love affair. The ending was fun.

Allow me to begin this review by saying two things. One, I am honestly surprised at the number of stars this book has been given. Two, this was not the worst romance novel I have ever read. Actually, if I could I'd give it a 2.5 out of 5 (or quite possibly six). That being said, the above statement should NOT be an advertisement for this book. So prepare yourself, for I have written a review that is both chock full of sarcasm and spoilers and it will take you a while to read this.

You have been warned.

I, like many seasoned romance readers, enjoy the occasional romance regarding a strapping Native American who--through a certain chain of events--happens to fall in love with a strong-willed white woman. So I thought that this book, which is set in 21st century Florida, would be a welcome addition to a genre that is normally delegated to the 19th century. Sadly, I was mistaken. Frankly, I found this book rather bland.

First off, the writing style. Everyone who has ever taken a creative writing class (or, in general, an English class) has the adage "show, don't tell" practically branded into their brains with a white hot poker. This book was telling right off the bat. It was one of those: "let-me-speak-in-long-paragraphs-while-I-detail-every-bit-of-my-history-and-life-so-I-can-get-the-reader-up-to-seepd-on-my-character" kind of things. This I did not enjoy. I sat there, absorbing all of this information, and my brain wasn't doing any work. I wasn't trying to piece together dynamic and three dimensional characters. Instead I was being told all about them--their lives, what they did, how they operated. It was like being fed instead of feeding myself and last I checked, I hadn't enjoyed that since I was two.

I found Doreen Owens Malek's An Indian Affair to be somewhat of a mixed bag. I liked the heroine immensely hero wasn't too bad either, but their romance seemed very rushed and the hero was so taciturn and well, moody, that I had a hard time feeling their emotional connection.

Cindy is in Tampa working on her Master's thesis on Seminole oral tradition when she meets Drew Fox and when they first lay eyes on each other it is explosive, literally as Drew has just smashed through a window. Drew is a modern day bounty hunter, well respected by the community and he is half Seminole. He takes a shine to pretty Cindy and soon he is calling on her for a date.

Cindy is fascinated with Drew who is her polar opposite. Their romance quickly becomes more physical than she wants and to his credit Drew puts on the breaks with their relationship. Cindy and he still remain friends though and they see each other often.

Drew recognizes he and Cindy are very different and he worries about their future as he distrusts that she will stay with him for the long haul. He has a tendency to doubt her motives and to her credit she is loyal but also direct with her feelings. Drew is the one who withdraws and he keeps a physical and emotional distance from Cindy who is much more understanding than most girlfriends would be in similar circumstances. Drew throws up barriers and doesn't try to find solutions with Cindy to their problems. In many ways she is braver than he is.

I am giving this story 3.5 stars. It's an easy read without any truly annoying characters. I did not see this couple connect emotionally till the end of the novel though.
