Oh boy. Where do I start.

This story was another ridiculous one by this author. The first 70 pages are a rehash of the end of the first book in the series and then the rest is just more drama of "I love him! I hate him!" by Alisha and "I did everything that I did to you for your own good!" by Grey Eagle. (Note, that in the first book a lot of abusive behavior was going on--I suggest listening to the more negative reviews given to this book between here and Amazon. The positive ones are apparently from people who think that whole Stockholm Syndrome thing is cool and romantic.)

Alisha is a whiner. Plain and simple. The girl is constantly upset because she's either being abused and won't take it anymore or that she loves Grey Eagle and can't live without him.

Grey Eagle is a bully who reminds me of those guys who beat their wives/girlfriends but say they did it out of love. (But with him it's out of a sense of having to maintain his honor that he's beat the snot out of the woman he loves in the previous book--at least that's what he keeps saying.)

And all the men who keep wanting to possess Alisha for their own! Wow! Somebody just tramp-stamp this girl and get it over with!

I had hoped that the story would improve and that I'd want to read more of these, since I love the historical value, but the Jerry Springer drama between the couple and all the side characters just really turned me off.

2nd book in Janelle Taylor's "Ecstasy" series

The longer Alisha Williams remained at Fort Pierre, the more she hoped her redskinned lover would rescue her from the taunts and tirades of the white pioneers. They would never let her forget she had been the mistress of the infamous savage warrior, Gray Eagle. As if the auburn-haired beauty could forget! Each night, Alisha sweetly remembered Gray Eagle's bold caresses, burning kisses, his blazing passion. Each day, she scanned the vast horizon in hopes her Oglala brave would recapture her. Then one day, as she beheld the blue skies of the wild frontier, Alisha saw hundreds of Indian warriors riding to the gates of Fort Pierre -- and at their head was the fierce Gray Eagle. Though her most fervent prayers had been answered, Alisha's heart skipped a beat: would Gray Eagle destroy her -- or make her destiny his own?
