Can anyone recommend a good author or book where the hero is Native American/Indian?  I read one just recently but the hero was a "half breed" and I'd love to read one where the hero is full blooded Native American - preferably historical.

 Thanks!

I have a few on my bookshelf that I'll be posting next week.  I can't tell you the names right off the top of my head though.

Cassie Edwards has many great books with Native American heros. She does a lot of research about the tribes then adds much of the culture, rituals, and customs into the story line. I highly recommend any of her books.

"Shadows of the Eclipse" by Bonnie Napoli (who is also a member here)
"Nakoa's Woman" by Gayle Rogers

Shortly after I joined PBS these two books were discussed in this forum. I love these two books and have them on my keeper shelf. They are both about full blooded Native Americans.

I really like Georgina Gentry's series of Native American Indian romance.  It starts with Cheyenne Captive, but you don't have to read them in order bc they stand on there own.  I just purchased Cheyenne Captive and let me tell you...so diff. to find...but they have a lot of them posted on here that you can request.  I just got 6 of them from a lady on here and can't wait to read the rest of them....soooooo good!!!

I have a few by Cassie Edwards and Elizabeth Lane on my booklist if you want to take a look.  They were all good.

Karen Kay also writes good Native American romances.

I would HIGHLY recommend Dream Catcher by Kathleen Harrington!

The hero is a strong Cheyenne leader and the heroine is a delightful, darling, redheaded spitfire. It's a keeper for me and very rereadable!

Joan Johnston has 'Commanche Woman', but I'm trying to remember if he was full-blooded or half-breed. That book is part of a thrilogy...'Texas Woman', 'Commanche Woman' & 'Frontier Woman'....I may have the order screwed up, but I know 'Commanche Woman' was in the middle.

Susan Edwards has a series of books commonly called the White series.  Many of her characters are full blooded and some are half breeds but they are another great set of books.

White Wolf, White Flame and White Dove were my favorites of the series.

One of my all-time favorite Native American historicals is Dream Catcher by Kathleen Harrington. The hero is a leader of a Cheyenne tribe. Wonderful story! I've re-read it so many times. :D

I just finished a good one called "Beloved Savage" by Sandra Bishop.   The hero is Algonquin and it is set in Pa., which is a nice change of culture and locale from many NA romance books.
 
 
One thing I really liked about it is that it takes a realistic amount of time for the hero, mourning a dead wife, and the heroine, wary of her captors, to even get to know each other - let  alone fall in love.  The romance part doesn't really start until halfway through.  The hero is not cruel to her, he just thinks she would be better off with her own kind.  And the heroine isn't a hysterical bigot who calls the natives terrible names and tries to be as difficult as possible.  Rather, she shows understandable fear yet grows to respect the tribe's ways and tries to pull her own weight and fit in.  It just takes awhile for circumstances to put them close enough together to realize they could be something special.  None of the cliched "I hate your kind but I can't keep my hands off of you" stuff from so many NA romances.
 
 
And it is very well researched, with lots of interesting info. on the Algonquin culture that was neat to read.
