Praise for the Comanche series
From the Author
Catherine Anderson loves dogs, cats, horses, cows, chickens, and nearly every other critter on earth. Her most guilty pleasure when she isn't writing is to chat with her followers on Facebook. Her fan page is one of the most happening places on the net, with a daily place for you to post and share pics up front and center. Ever visited a fan page, and all you can do is reply to an author's chosen feature of the day? Well, Catherine believes in community, and she wants her readers to not only have fun, but also to become lifelong friends. And she always, ALWAYS replies, unless something catastrophic occurs. She doesn't want her fan page to be all about her and her books! Heaps of tried and true recipes! Funny jokes. Hilarious quotes. It's a happening place with fairly frequent contests as well.

When a series of mine accidents have her father, Hunter, laid up with injuries, along comes Jake Rand to offer his hand at managing the mine (though he seems to spend little time doing that). In reality, Jake is the oldest son of a wealthy owner of mines, many of which were purchased when the mine owner was in trouble, as Hunter is now. While Jake originally came to purchase Hunter's mine, when he finds out his father may be causing the mine accidents, he comes in disguise to learn the truth. He didn't count on meeting the bewitching Indigo who soon has him forgetting he has a fiancé back in Portland. And he shakes Indigo's world, too. ("The moment she first saw him, she had sensed it--an inexplicable something, a strange feeling of recognition--as if her destiny had finally come calling.")
As with the first two books in the series, Anderson has captured the time period and the Comanche culture with practiced expertise. She makes it look easy when it isn't. We see Wolf's Landing and it's unusual blending of cultures from Jake's point of view, a stranger to this part of Oregon. Jake is impressed by the love he witnesses in the Wolf family. He has known poverty as well as wealth, but he has never known such simple joys as the Wolf family shares. So when an unusual happening forces a "shotgun wedding" to Indigo, Jake steps up to do the noble thing even though Indigo rebels at the idea of marrying any man.
Anderson tells the story of Jake and Indigo beautifully with elegant dialog and believable twists and turns. And wonderful secondary characters! I loved the family priest, Father O'Grady. He and Jake have a very funny conversation about Indigo that had me laughing out loud.
It's a great read and I recommend it! I do, however, suggest reading them in order.
The Comanche Series:
Comanche Moon, 1991
Comanche Heart, 1991
Indigo Blue, 1992
Comanche Magic, 1994
Nor did I find chemistry between Indigo and Jake. Yes, I could grasp her sexual fears in light of her earlier attack, but her character was made to appear submissive. I liked Jake's character, even though I did not understand his patience with Indigo -- and was pleased to finally get to the well-written confrontation he finally has with Indigo. It was a great summation of racial prejudice, low self-esteem and the fear that often accompanies both.
Again, this was not my favorite in the series, though it was a good read. I just think it could have been better.
Sad at times but I did enjoy Jake and Indigo's love story. Would have been nice if she was a bit stronger to overcome her obstacles having a man like that to love her. Kind of reminded me of Amy in the prior book. She took the whole book to get over her issues as well.
