I was so excited to find a couple of Rosanne Bittner's older books were coming out on kindle (I sure hope more keep coming!) and grabbed this one. I thought it sounded familiar (like I must have read it years ago), but it was foggy enough in my mind I got lost in it like I would any new-to-me book.

I loved this story and how Sunny and Colt meet and keep finding each other. My only complaint is that I wish it didn't take them so long to finally get and stay together... but anything worth having is worth waiting for, right??? :)

Keep these oldies-but-goodies coming! These are the kind of darn good stories we want to read/see today!

THUNDER ON THE PLAINS by Rosanne Bittner is a journey of love in the Wild West that is not for the faint of heart. Gloriously well written, this powerful tale will haunt you long after you have finished it.

Colt Travis knows a good opportunity when he sees it. When Bo Landers offers a generous sum of money to guide their group from the Wild West back to Chicago, Colt agrees even though he knows great danger lies ahead. On their journey, he becomes acquainted with Bo's beautiful and brave daughter Sunny despite the fact that he knows they can be nothing more than friends. They come from two different worlds and if that wasn't enough of a barrier, Colt is half-Cherokee. Any kind of relationship could never work.

Sunny Landers became fascinated with Colt the first time she met him on the trail and knew she would never forget him. A binding duty to her father's dreams of a transcontinental railroad keeps her focused and preoccupied for most of the time, but that could never keep the memories of Colt Travis far away. As the country changes, Sunny and Colt meet various times and each parting becomes more difficult. Despite all the odds against them, they must decide if true love is enough to conquer all or if they were never meant to be.

THUNDER ON THE PLAINS by Rosanne Bittner is the kind of novel that touches your heart and captures your attention so drastically you can't stop reading it until you have finished it. The kind of story filled with characters that become a part of you and takes you on an emotional, yet thrilling journey into another place and time. It's not an easy journey, but it's more realistic, grittier, and not the light and fancy-free novel that most romance fans expect.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Thunder on the Plains is one of the best books I have read so far this year, in fact, this is going on my all-time favorites list. At 528 pages it is a quite a bit longer than my typical average read however it kept me fully engaged throughout the entire story. Ironically, I read this book while on the road for our vacation from Wisconsin to Omaha, Nebraska. The Union Pacific Railroad and Omaha play a huge role in this novel. It felt a bit nostalgic to be traveling a similar path as the characters in the book. We even happened to drive by the Union Pacific building although I’m sure it looked much different in Sunny’s day.

Ms. Bittner has a way of bringing the pages and characters to life which pulled me right in from page one and I hated having to put it down for even one second. I loved getting to know both Sunny and Colt and there were so many ups and downs and twists and turns, I had no clue if things would ever work out for them in the end.

I’m not sure why I haven’t read any of Ms. Bittner’s work in several years but I will say that I have plans to remedy that right away and hope to get my hands on her entire backlist. Thunder on the Plains is a story that I thoroughly enjoyed and look forward to reading again and again in the future.

Rosanne Bittner is on my top 5 favorite authors. I have read several of her books and looking forward to reading all of them. This book is fantastic. Never a dull moment which is rare for a long book. So far, my favorite book by RB is " Unforgettable" Don't miss any of her books. You won't be disappointed.

I have probably read thousands of books in my lifetime, and have had my favorite authors over the years. The more I read the harder it gets to find authors with fresh and unique ideas; an author who can keep me so enthralled with their work I cannot put it down. Rosanne Bittner is such an author. Her stories encompass stories within stories. Her books are so thorough they never leave one wondering as to the outcome of the lives of the characters her stories embrace. Her style of writing literally pulls you into the story making you feel what her hero and heroines feel, making you anxious to find out what happens next, which is rarely predictable. It took me 2 days to read "Thunder on the Plains", but the story was so riveting I could not disengage...sleep and meals were my only diversion.

With Rosanne Bittner's command of language she has no need for "filler" words or excessive detail to get her thought across; there's never a dull moment when reading her stories.

I highly recommend "Thunder on the Plain" --- have a box of tissue handy.
