FYI:This is a sequel to "Velvet Savage"&"Destiny's Splendor"
Forgot to mention in my review below:
This book continues the story of the Blackfoot family. "Destiny's Splendor" begins the story with Star Hawk&Silver Star. "Velvet Savage" continues the story with their twin children, Sacred Eagle (Two Shadows) and Sky Eyes. "Gentle Savage" then further contiues the story with Sky Eyes' daughter as the leading lady.
You will definitely get tons more out of "Gentle Savage" if you have read the other two books first!!! You will understand the characters better, but you will also have a renewed attachment to all of the couples that makes this book so much more heart- churning.
"Gentle Savage" greatly reconnects you to Sacred Eagle&Kalina, and Star Hawk&Silver Star.
Still wish the ending had been better!

What the heck happened????
Kathleen Drymon is easily my favorite romance novelist. This book was as terrific as her others, until the very last chapter left me wondering just that... "What on earth happened to the story?"
For the first 300 pages or so, K.D. takes you on another of her exquisite adventures into Indian territory. The story is fun, playful, exciting, adventurous, and oh- so- romantic. In her usual style, K.D. makes you fall in love with the hero of the story, and identify with the young woman. She writes so vividly that you are actually seeing the story in your mind like a terrific classic western/ romance movie.
Then you get to the last chapter. All of a sudden, she introduces a whole slew of new characters and takes off into a whole different plot. Everything is thrown together and you long to get back to the original story. I waited through the first half of the last chapter for the hero to come and rescue his wife from her captors, in a bold and exciting battle with the villain who had stolen her. That didn't happen. What did happen was a very disappointing scene that seemed straight out of a bad soap opera. Finally, even faster than all of this was introduced, the story is sewn back up in the blink of one page. HUH? What happened to the beautiful story that I read for over 300 pages? What a disappointing end.
I still recommend the book. I would easily be here giving this book a raving 5 stars, except for the late disappoinment. K.D. makes it worth your while through the rest of the story. You will get to enjoy a great adventure and a magical romance. I just wish she would have continued that to the end.

Gentle Savage shows true romance.
Kathleen Drymon has a magical way with words. Shetakes us into the midst of the Blackfoot Indians. The characters come to life with every word you read. You feel like you have become one of the village. Every woman who reads this will want her own Night Rider. It is filled with romance like I've never read before.
