After the death of her fiance, Katy Maria Alvarez decides to enter a convent. Enroute to the convent she is taken captive by Indians and becomes the slave of the Cheyenne warrior, Iron Wing. Against all odds the two fall in love and battle to stay together.
Love in the Wind was the very first romance novel that I ever read and it remains my favorite even now, years later! I found it very well written, and very emotionally provoking.
Love in the Wind is an old western historical romance. Katy is the woman at the center of the story. She was once an heiress to her parents' farm, but decided to become a nun when her fiance was killed by Indians. On her way to the convent, her coach is attacked by rebel Indians and she is the only one left alive, only to be found by a group of Cheyenne. She is taken back to their tribe and is given as a gift to their greatest warrior, Iron Wing, and thus the romance begins. It's true that Katy surely should have learned to hate Iron Wing as she many times proclaimed, but love never knows what it is SHOULD do anyway. Against all odds the two fall in love, and then must fight beyond what they had ever imagined to stay together.
Love and romance, humor and fun, horrifying and tear jerking, this book has everything. It is a truly good read.
Madeline Baker has outdone herself yet again! What a wonderful story! Lots of love scenes but also other strong emotions like hate and betrayal. Highly reccommended!
