Recommends it for: Native American/western romance fans who like sweeter romance
Kaylee Matthews is out riding with her friend Randy one day when she comes upon a wounded Indian. She cannot stand the thought of letting the Indian die, so she has the reluctant Randy help her take him to an abandoned cabin. The Indian has been shot a few times, so Kaylee gets her mother who knows about healing to help patch him up. She makes her mother promise not to tell her step-father because he doesn't like Indians and would probably kill him. As Kaylee helps the Indian recover, she feels ...more

I thought this book was fairly engaging -- it did hold my attention until the end. I always like learning more about different cultures and this book gives a historical account of some Native American people/tribes. I also like the heroine, Kaylee a lot. Her character was well-developed and I could sense her love, dedication and compassion. While fictional the story is based on real life and it was heartbreaking to read of Blue Hawk's family and culture being stripped away due to violence and gr ...more

A good story, though a few things did irk me a bit. Mostly the fact that Kaylee was taken into the Lakota lifestyle with no resistance by the indians whatsoever. Blue Hawk was protecting her sure, but you'd expect at least some unfriendly looks at least. Otherwise I thought the story was very sweet, if a bit fast between the two of them.
This is a good representation of Native American frontier on a mild, sweet way of telling old stories about red-skinned injuns. Everything about this book is retold in such a mellow, saccharine fashion which the readers can't help but sigh along the way and let their hearts be melted by the delicious, brave, Lakota warrior named Blue Hawk. There's not so much brutality, no rape, no explicit detailed scenes about war, or even the sex scenes are so sweet.

Lakota Love Song (Paperback)
If you like Indian history, you will love this book. If you are looking for a quick "Handsome Indian Grabs Beautiful White Maiden", you might be disappointed.

This was a real love story about two people of different customs and races, and the difficulties they found trying to fit into either world. In this book, you find yourself pulling for one side and then the other, only to discover that there really is no right or wrong side.

I personally found the book fascinatin

There was something refreshing but also off-putting about this book, and I'm still not sure what it was. I appreciated the absence of too much unnecessary melodrama and shrewish behavior from the heroine, and I liked that the hero was actually a nice guy while also being a warrior badass...but it didn't really have any emotional tug. It was sweet and a pleasant way to pass the time, and there are parts I wouldn't mind reading again, but it lacked that certain something that would make me rank it ...more
This started off quite promising, but unfortunately after a while I found that it didn't really hold my interest. It was very predictable and formulaic, plus I think the author tried to pack too much into it.

my favorite book in the world. its a good read.
Feb 17, 2014 Jenny rated it it was amazing
A heartwarming heroic journey filled with love and the beginnings of an understanding of different people.
There are always two sides to a story. Young Kaylee was raised believing the Indians were savage and killed for the pleasure of it, but soon she learns it is not so. After saving Blue Hawk, she lives with his people and shares their pain and joy. Their people are accepting of her where her people shoot first and ask questions later. But the love these two share soon makes all the difference

Okay, I thought we were were clear that I came out here to have fun reading ROMANCE GENRE expecting an easy instant HEA but I'm feeling so attacked right now. WELCOME BOOK HANGOVER which I'm having them double right now!

What the fuck am I crying

The thing is I thought I could get away with not reading something Little Bighorn or of Crazy Horse *cough the sequel of Hundred in the Hand cough* by reading a romance (which I thought it would give a secured HEA) set in that timeline instead because t

I don't know if I can describe in how many ways this story went wrong. To start, I didn't begin the book with the expectation that it was going to be a work of art and one of the greatest literature of all time. I did expect a cute story with interesting and lovable characters with a heavy romantic theme. What I received was...less than stellar.

The character's were very flat, not much to them. However, that wasn't the main crux of the story. The plot went way too fast. She found the injured Indi
cerita bermula saat Kaylee dan Randy, sepasang pria dan wanita kulit putih yang tengah berkuda dihutan secara tidak sengaja menemukan seorang lelaki Indian Lakota bernama Blue Hawk yang terluka dan tak sadarkan diri.

semula randy menolak untuk menolongnya, bahkan dia sempat bersikeras untuk membunuh lelaki indian tsb, namun usaha tsb dihalangi kaylee. akhirnya dengan berat hati dan tetap waspada ia terpaksa mengikuti kemauan teman wanitanya.

kemunculan Blue Hawk diareal ranch Double R bukan tanp
I did not connect with these characters at all. I wasn't given a chance to.

I felt more for the heroine's mother and step-father than I did for the hero and heroine.

The ending turned out nice, but I skimmed to get to it.

2 stars from me, but don't let that deter you from enjoying.

I absolutely adored this book! From start to finish I was engrossed in it. I love how much effort Madeline Baker put into the book as far as Lakota history, values, their ways ect. Many authors would have just generalised the tribe as a typical Native American tribe. Not this author. Her style of writing is also just incredible.

The love story between Kaylee and Blue Hawk starts with her saving him from death, and in return, he kidnaps her. How adorable, right? They soon fall for each other and

Lakota Love Song is the first of its genre I've ever indulged in, but for the exceptional e-book price ($1.99), I felt adventurous enough to give it a try.

Baker does her homework and it shows in this book as she makes the effort to expose the reader to Lakota culture in a way that's interesting and enlightening. Her character, Blue Hawk, is brave, noble, amiable, and easy to fall in love with.

There was a lull in the middle of the book where the love scenes grew redundant and the pace slowed trem

I actually really liked this one :) this was my first madeline baker book that i had read but i was really impressed (and it makes me wanna read more of the NA book genres now)
i like the story .. and it seemed to flow really well .. i like the mix of action and adventure and the romance ... though wasnt heavy on the sex scenes was really lovely to read (and was enough to imagine)

the ending was a lil too quick and a lil too wrapped up for me but was nice when i read the epilogue
