Not your standard Native American romance,

From the back cover:
He saved her life...she rescued his heart.

Mail-order bride Jennifer Andrews headed for Texas ready for adventure. But when her stagecoach was attacked by Comanche warriors, the auburn-haired beauty wished she'd never left St. Louis. Then all at once the renegades were gone...and she was being cradled in the strong arms of fellow passenger Wade Morrow. The handsome half-breed had saved her life, and though they were all alone on the vast Texas plains, she suddenly felt safer than she had ever before. For she'd finally found the man who could ease the loneliness in her sould, and bring rapture to her heart!

Though Comanche blood ran in Wade Morrow's veins, he'd been adopted by a white family as an infant, and knew nothing of his Indian heritage. Still, something in him yearned for the wild, untamed land where he was born. So he headed up to west Texas to join with his future--and ended up with Jennifer Andrews in his arms! Wade knew from bitter experience that no white woman would ever want him, and he tried to harden his heart against the sweet desire she awakened. But soon he realized there was no deying the passion they were destined to share in the magnificent glow of the Comanche sunset.

Wonderful book. The storyline hooks the reader in from the very beginning. This is my own review, not taken from any book or insert.

Privileged Jennifer Andrews, the red haired beauty from St. Louis, has to make a difficult life decision following the death of her beloved aunt. A decision which, ultimately leads to a shocking and dizzying destiny that has her crossing paths and into the arms of mysterious Wade Morrow, who is seeking a destiny of his own. Jennifer quickly learns the hardships women have to endure in the West. Especially when after all she endures, the man she is a mail order bride for, is far worse then any threat of the wild.

Wade Morrow, the handsome, rugged, and wealthy partner of his adopted family's business cannot resist the urge to find the family that left him behind as a baby. Wade has had to endure prejudice and contempt from people his whole life because he is half Comanche Indian, the most hated people in the West. When the beautiful Jennifer gets in trouble, he cannot help but step in and take care of her and falls in love with her beauty and her heart.

Together and seperately, they face trials and tribulations that keep the reader hoping that it is their destiny to be together.

Reviewer: Tami Brandt (Missouri, USA) -

I enjoyed this novel immensely. I have a well-worn copy of this book. I love F. Rosanne Bittner's stories. She writes with such clarity that you think you are there with the characters watching them as a third party. In 'Comanche Sunset' Wade Marrow is the son of a Freight Shipping Mogul, but he is also part Comanche who was abandoned by his real mother because he was a twin and Comanches think of Twins as Bad Omens. Well Lester and Vivian Marrow saved Wade from the ravages of the Texas Plains and went to California. In 1860, Wade is now 26 years old and in search of his Indian Heritage, so he hops one of his father's freight trains and goes to San Antonio where he signs on as Indian Scout for a stage coach going to Fort Stockton and meets Jennifer Andrews who is going to Ft. Stockton as a mail-order bride. Along the way the stage coach gets attacked by renegade Indians and all but Wade and Jennifer are dead in the raid. Wade and Jennifer travel alone through the Texas plains towards Ft. Stockton with Wade treating her wounds and they soon realize there was no denying the passion they were destined to share in the magnificent glow of the Comanche Sunset.
The characters are simple and believable. This book as been a favorite of mine for years because Ms. Bittner uses real places and real history in her stories that set the scene for the couples in her romance novels. Ms. Bittner did a great job in creating these characters, for how the story was written they are suited for each other. I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys Indian romance and a F. Rosanne Bittner fan.
