Well, how's that for a category?!?  Love anything Native ~ as long as it's contemporary, just not so much into historicals or being abducted on the prairie.  But stories involving a NA character in modern life, especially with romance and/or suspense???  Count me in.  Lots of Kathleen Eagle.  Anything or anyone members can suggest?  Always looking for a new avenue to look down...

Cassie Edwards writes about Native Americans. Her 'Savage' series features all different tribes.

Sadly for me Cassie Edward's books are historicals.  But thanks for the thought

I really can't think of any that deal with the details of modern native american life.  Two good ones with heroes who have problems compounded by predjudice in the modern West are MacKenzie's Mountain by Linda Howard and Nighthawk by Rachel Lee.

Lealee - thanks so much, hadn't heard of the Rachel Lee one though was looking forward to the Mackenzie series.

For me it doesn't necessarily need to be about modern NA life, though NA philosophy/way of life as part of the story is great.

Thanks for the info,

The Rachel Lee book is part of the Conard County series, set in Conard County, Wyoming.  They were mostly really good books, I thought.  There were several Native American or mixed blood characters including the very sexy hero of Cherokee Thunder.

The titles I have on my keeper shelf from that series are Exile's End

Cherokee Thunder

Miss Emmaline And The Archangel

Ironheart(more native Americans, it's been a long time but I believe the hero was an iron worker in New York before he came there, the Mohawks excel at that)

Lost Warriors (Viet Nam Vet issues

The Catch of Conard County

Point Of No Return

A Question Of Justice (this is the book where the Native American hero has the problems, I told you the wrong one.  Sorry.  This is the romance between his lawyer and a marshall)

Nighthawk (this is the book where he has his own romance and you get to know him)

Cowboy Comes Home

Involuntary Daddy

I think most of Sherri Whitefeather's are NA heroes.  Rachel Lee's Conard County series is good too.  And, yes, Diana Palmer has some NA heroes.  Paper Rose and Hunter come to mind.

Hawk O'Toole's Hostage by Sandra Brown iis a contemporary romance about a group of native americans who take some pretty desperate measures to reopen a silver mine.

Thanks Sarah - Hawk O'Toole's Hostage by Sandra Brown - is just what I was hoping to find.  Hope to find more like this.  Thanks again

She also has Honor Bound which I haven't read yet but have in my TBR. 

 

I finished and posted Hawk O'Toole's Hostage this morning then thought of this thread. It's on my shelf and I'm doing a 2/1 if you want it.

Honor Bound is pretty good too!  I love older Sandra Browns.

Diana Palmer has several with Native American heroes.  Paper Rose is one of them. 

Check out my Native American Swap-it's contemporary and historical. 

The hero in the Blaze book Hot on Her Tail is Native American (and a Bounty Hunter).

Huge favorite of mine-and I don't "do" contemporary nor category romances usually.  Cheryl Reavis'-Navajo Family Blessings series.  Think there's four to five of them.

The Healer

The Warrior

Pam
