Kole Kills Crow is a perfect romance hero brooding, dangerous, "other" cast in the same mold as a gypsy from the wild moors, or a rogue who is no longer received in Charleston. Kills Crow is a hero of the Native American movement, a terrorist according to the law and possibly a murderer. Now he lives like a fugitive, holed up in a remote cabin, until he is discovered by journalist Heather Reardon. Sexy and feral as his wolf-dog, he possesses an unpredictable cruel streak balanced by a dash of tenderness and sensitivity he is also a maker of fine, highly prized flutes. Once Heather locates him in a honky-tonk, she inveigles him into dancing with her and then convinces him to let her into his life so she can tell his story. "This would be more than an interview. She believed him to be one of a rare breed, maybe even a dying breed of men... a true champion of the people." Thus begins a long tease. There is much inane, double-entendre conversation as the two move inevitably through mistrust to lust to true love. Along the way, there are political issues to settle, and a quest for fairness for Native Americans leads to an intense climax under the Hollywood sign above Los Angeles. Eagle (What the Heart Knows; The Last Good Man) won't disappoint her fans with this spicy, fast-paced tale. (Aug.)Forecast: With more than 35 books to her credit and several awards for her romances, Eagle has a solid following. The political aspect of her latest doesn't overshadow the romance and may increase her readership. National print advertising, a four-city author tour and a teaser chapter in the paperback of The Last Good Man are planned.

When freelance journalist Heather Reardon heads for the wilds of northern Minnesota in search of the legendary Kole Kills Crow, a Native American activist and fugitive who has purposely dropped out of sight, she has more than just a journalistic interest that his story be told. Not only is he one of her heroes from way back but he is also the father of her seven-year-old goddaughter, whom he will never see unless he deals with his violent and dangerous past. But it isn't until Kole sees a revealing video clip that he reluctantly realizes that he must face his demons if he ever is going to be free. Politics, murder, and betrayal are all part of this sensual, involving spin-off of The Last Good Man (Avon, 2000), which nicely blends romance and activism. Noted for her especially well-drawn heroes and sensitive treatment of Native American issues, Eagle is a RITA-award winning writer and lives in the Minneapolis area.
