Native American book Really great with lots of historial information too.......Story is wonderful
I enjoyed reading this novel. Janelle Taylor writes historical romance with heart and soul, and it shows through. "Lakota Winds" is a heartwarming story about two people with broken hearts that unite to save their people and learn to trust each other and trust in their love to heal all wounds. Wind Dancer and Chumani were interesting and believable characters. Janelle Taylor has done a wonderful job in developing the characters in the story with a good plot line. Ms. Taylor was able to hold my interest throughout the entire novel with the growing love story between the characters and their cause. Everytime I read an Indian romance, I have a new respect for the Native American people. I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Janelle Taylor and Indian Romance!
On Back Cover - When his wife and young son are slaughtered by Crow warriors, Wind Dancer is left embittered and lonely. Intent only on duty to his people, he never imagines that it will force him to take another woman into his life. Chumani too has lost much to tribal wars. Seeking revenge for the murder of her husband and child, the beautiful warrior rides fiercely against her enemies, and vows never again to marry. But when a medicine man sees her union with Wind Dancer in a sacred vision, she knows their alliance will make both their tribes strong. Now, beneath the wide sky of a land at war with itself, Wind Dancer and Chumani must learn to trust again-and to succumb to a love that can heal-if they ever hope to save their people.
I liked Janelle Taylors books when I was into Native American featured romantic men, but the premise... Wind Dancer never wants another woman... come on now, every morning his body should be arguing with that thought. Chamura doesn't seem to have a reason to like this (at first) nasty fellow, too bad more background isn't woven into the story about everyday things.
