***Mild Spoilers***

This is 1.5 stars for me, in actuality.

I wasn't a big fan of this book. My problem is that I hated hated HATED Candice. She wasn't much of a protagonist, making so many too stupid to live decisions on top of being selfish and immature. I know the hero said at the end of the book that she'd grown but it wasn't in any way that I saw. I kept reading this book thinking Jack deserved better than her.

Most of my smiles came at the end with the birth of Shozkay since "Fires of Paradis...more
This was an absolutely, wonderful historical fiction, I had a hard time putting it down. Brenda Joyce has a remarkable talent of taking real historical events, characters and battles, and writing a heart wrenching love story. The Darkest Heart is definitely an old style romance with a lot of bad things the main characters must overcome. Jack Savage (he names himself), who is a half breed Indian, is torn between two worlds and can't find his fit. He saves Candace from dying in the desert after sh...more
The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because of all of the typos which really were a distraction from the story. Sometimes I couldn't figure out at all what was meant but the story itself was great! Make sure you read the notes at the end of the book. There is some very interesting information in there.

There is much to be learned from this book aside from the obvious. Lying and lying by omission can be very bad! I got kind of tired of Candice and her lies and her betrayals and quite frankl...more

This romance is connected to Joyce's Bragg saga, and specifically to the 5th installment, THE FIRES OF PARADISE. (See full list below.)

I was really excited to read this story as I loved FIRES OF PARADISE. In that book, the wonderful hero, Shoz Savage, who is part Apache, remembers his parents with great fondness and speaks of their continuing love for each other. So here we have their story...

Set in the New Mexico Territory in 1860, beautiful blonde Candice Carter, a rancher's daughter, has made...more

The second book I read of Brenda Joyce's works and still the experience of reading her stories are just realistic. The characters really gets to experience the horrors of history and how people lived. Thus drawing the reader's sympathies and gets them to react (in my case squealing like crazy one moment and at the edge of my seat the next). I find myself unable to let go of the book and just press on. The next thing I remembered I was lying on my bed, waking up. I had dreamed of still continuing...more
I'm a horrible human being for saying this: she deserved it.

I'm not even sorry. The heroine was loathsome. I couldn't find it in myself to sympathize with her at all. I'm halfway through and I already wish her the worst imaginable pain and torture. UGHHHH. Someone call her a WHAAAAAAAAAMBULANCE. She's a crier...
I've read way too many paperback romances to keep an accounting of them all - I mention this one because it was the first I ever read. My mom bought it at a gas station for a Seattle-SL road trip and I took it when she was done. I was 12 and it was like nothing I had ever read before! LOL
My first introduction to Brenda Joyce many years ago. Bookcover was a put off (aren't they always), but she writes a good story, kept me reading.

Boo... I did not finish it. What an awful book by Ms. Joyce.
Sufficient for a romance novel.
