Coming upon a coach accident after hearing a gunshot, Colt Thunder pulls out of the wreckage the talkingest white woman he ever met. After being beaten to an inch of his life for falling for a white woman in the past, the last thing the halfbreed needed was being in the presence of a English lady- and a rich one at that. But there’s something about this one that causes a strong pull... which is why he makes his escape as soon as her entourage shows up.

Still, Jocelyn Flemming, Her Grace the Duche

The second book in the Wyoming series by Johanna Lindsey. Her Grace, Lady Jocelyn Fleming, is a widowed duchess on the run from a man referred to as "Longnose". When her husband died he set her up with a fortune and an entourage to escape his greedy relatives. "Longnose" was hired to bring her back. Jocelyn hires half-breed Colt Thunder to guide her to Wyoming.

This is another book that I read back in the 1980s when it was first published. Back then Johanna Lindsey did no wrong and I read anythin

Many of Johanna Lindsey's historical romance novels, including this one, are on sale for just $0.99!

When I accessed her books via her author's page on amazon, I didn't see the sale price, but if you follow this link then scroll down, you'll see all the books are $0.99!

Also, is this the book with the 'sex on a horse' scene?

Savage Thunder (Wyoming Book 2) by Johanna Lindsey for $0.99 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005...

Johanna Lindsey is a hit or miss for me, most of the time. This time, it worked.

White Thunder, now Colt Thunder, is the half-brother of Jesse, the heroine from the 1st book. It's been a handful of years, and he has tried to integrate himself into white society. Unfortunately, that failed and he wears the scars for that incident. He no longer likes white women.

Oh the irony, when he saves the Duchess, Jocelyn, a young rich woman with an entourage, from a run in with an assassin. Yes, that part wi

Recommends it for: anyone who enjoys a good Romance book or loves Johanna Lindsey
I read this book in two days; I just could not put it down. I'm not usually one for Western Romance Novels but I got hooked on this one. Such interesting characters a duchess and a Cheyenne Warrior, combine that with a great story and the steamy love scenes, who could resist. I also enjoyed the fact that the leading lady wasn't some push over; she was spunky and could hold her own. Johanna Lindsey you have not let me down yet.

Well call me a Granny because I loved this book, thanks for daring me Sparkle! I thought the cover was hilarious, it looked like one of my Grandma's books that we all teased her about reading. But it's another example of don't judge a book by it's cover!!

It read like an epic Western movie with action, adventure, intrigue, and a reluctant romance. Once the story started rolling, I couldn't put it down and finished in one day!

Good old Johanna Lindsey. Nobody does an old-fashioned bodice-ripper like she can. Sometimes I like to just dive in to one of these "oldies but goodies" for the pure enjoyment of it. Wonderful stuff.

A fun old school romance! The ending had me rolling my eyes as the dialog became a bit too, well, old school...

This was much better than my last JL book. But it was a lot of pushing away from our hero. Sure, given his back story we can understand that. But we really didn't get a lot of time with him. He was always staying out of sight. And on the occasions when he was around he was mostly being rude or aloof to heroine.

Then when the author finally gave us that 1 week, the last leg of the journey, where they had fewer barriers and hero stop fighting his inner attractions, there wasn't a lot of s

I was in the mood for a light and fast-paced read. It was a refreshing change to have the heroine pursue the hero. Moved along with a great plot and was a little tame UNTIL chapter 38....OH MY! Never really imagined THAT before (wide eyed blink blink, blink)....Nope, not gonna tell....you have to read it yourself :)

I read a lot of Lindseys back in the day, and this one was my favorite. You've got Fabio with black hair on the cover, and sex on horseback inside. What more do you want?

Oh goodness, how do I rate thee? If I compare this book to more recent fare, it doesn't bode well, but if I think about it as a bastion of 80s romance goodness, it would rank pretty high. I had never read this infamous novel with the horseback sex scene and was convinced by a few good ladies in twitter to not only read it but to live tweet as I did. And so...I did. This is a fantastic book as long as you keep in mind when it was written. If published today I think it would suffer a great deal of ...more

I read this book quite a while ago but didn't rate it. OK story, I didn't like the duchess so much. She seemed like a spoiled brat for a large part of the book to me. I had the impression that she knew she had status and money, and she expected to be treated better because of that. I found it rather unattractive.

Jocelyn, an English duchess on the run from greedy relatives, tricks Colt Thunder, a half-breed who despises white people, into escorting her into Wyoming.

Great story about overcoming prejudice. Colt is a little stubborn, but Jocelyn is refreshing in her honesty.
Stacey Howell
This was a good read. I felt that it dragged on in a few parts, and I think it could have used some more sex scenes. The hero was steamy & the heroine more interesting than most. A good plot & ending. If you like western romance, it's worth the read.

Loved this book! I love historical fiction that takes place in the Wild West and this book doesn't disappoint.Some parts were a little slow and there isn't much romance between the two (but that's fine with me!)so if you like mushy love stories then this book isn't for you.
