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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
