At first I was getting a bit mad at the hero, MacGregor, and was siding with Regina, but then we got to know his past a bit better and saw repeatedly how good he was, how gently he acted with his scrap of a baby and with her... mwell, my heart was completely lost to the man.
The plot was really interesting, with great characters appearing all the time, hot scenes between the main characters and there was also real development and growth from both of them.
I liked reading about the Indians at the time, how they suffered and fought. The author is very talented, indeed. Great descriptions.
At I was getting to the end of the book, Regina (or Violet) was starting to annoy me quite a bit, but I got her point of view, and she ended up redeeming herself... the end was really sweet.
I wish I could have Pierre and/or MacGregor for myself. I'll be reading it again soon. ;)
A quick, interesting, romantic reading.
She is given a choice, a simple matter of yea or nay. She strings the hero along, cruelly giving him blue balls while she uses him to get what she needs and wants--her survival and freedom. I'm not partial to little girls who play this game, much less 31 year old women. This was especially unmerciful given her realization that the hero is a good man--especially compared to the men in her life prior to his entry.
Surrounded by dangerous men--all of whom would use and abuse her--as well as dangerous times, she refuses to listen to good sense. She is stubbornly determined to step away from the only real safety she has, determined to live her life her way--outside of any man's control. This was ridiculous considering that during that period in history women in England (from whence she had traveled) weren't allowed to manage their lives outside of their fathers, husbands, or brothers. Stranded in the unsettled/untamed areas of the American west--occupied by hostile natives and unscrupulous bands of pioneers--why in the world would things be different? It would be common knowledge that Indians were besetting colonists. It would be common knowledge that a woman alone would not be safe in the west--regardless of her resources. This knowledge would be common among those in the eastern United States from whence all travel to the west commenced--especially travel from England. Sheesh!
I wish I could get past that portion to appreciate the overall plot, but having a female lead a man around by his dic* is just too low a plot device. The writing attempts to portray the character as a heroine fearlessly determined to forge a life on her own terms, but she actually comes off as selfish and stupid. In effect she was a little girl living out her daydreams in a dangerous world. There is nothing heroic or admirable about the lack of good sense, especially when someone else is left paying the consequences. I couldn't enjoy this book as a result, because I was really really hoping the hero would leave her to pay in full the consequences she invited.
