In my opinion, the book takes to long to bring the main story line to conclusion, while not really giving enough details for some interesting side stories.
Halfway through the book, the hero started to grow on me, but I never once liked the heroine. Not even in the epilogue where all is rosy with the world. She was mean. She was selfish. She was rude. She was ungrateful. She was basically a disgrace to romance novel heroines. If I met her in real life, I'd walk away afterwards and never talk to her again---or care what happened to her. The same is true with this book.
I see it is the first in the series. Normally, I always go on to the second book. Not this time.
Even after learning about Indians first hand and living with them and supposedly befriending them she still refers to them as Savages. Ironically enough this selfish stubborn bigoted female connived her way into marrying a half breed Savage herself. So In Josie's mind marrying a savage, living with one and exploring her sexual curiosity with one is okay as long as it helps her get what she wants. Long Belly should have left her at the brothel where she belonged, she may have only been washing clothes but she would have been upstairs entertaining really fast if it meant that she could get some money to buy her a ranch.
The other unfortunately part of this story is Daniel, a man that only wants to do what is right for is Indian relatives and create a home for is motherless four year old twin boys. While Daniel tries to make the best of the situation I think that he starts to confuse lust and loneliness with love and brings his children in to a verbally abusive home. No child should ever be referred to a heathens and pisspots or Hell and Damnation, something that Josie does throughout the book and to make matter worse she does it to their faces.
Josie is by far the meanest most self- centered hateful woman I have ever read about in a romance novel. It's sad but I think that the secondary characters of Long Belly and Sissy would have made for a much better story, one based on love, commitment and respect for each other; what real romance is about.
I definitely would give this book a five star rating, it was so good!
The Author has good stories, which I've read at least three. My main negative is that some of them tend to go toward 'XX' rating due to sexual content. A good story doesn't need to go into detail about 'stuff' since most people have a good idea what happens behind closed doors.
This story worked for me since there was a marriage between them.
