The name Long Quiet for the Commanche warrior intrigued me so I had to read it. Plus the woman Bayleigh Stewart (Shadow) was a redhead. Two reasons for me to read the book. A nice romance where the man has no problem with communicating his true feelings but the woman does.

This was really a romance novel that my mom passed on to me and said it was good. Every once in a while a good romantic love story sits just right and this was pretty good as they go.

Wow... This is the second book of the Sisters of the Lone Star and I didn't think I could cry as much as the first one. (but I did... Dont get me wrong I didn't cry throughout either of the first two books but there are definitely some scenes where a box of tissues are needed.)

Bay the second child of Rip Stewart, has "middle kid" syndrome. She is the opposite of her other two sisters, more reserved, nurturing, and does not play the cowgirl role very well. Bay has been Kidnapped and held captives

The heroine is kidnapped by the Comanches at 18 years old and held captive by the war chief for 3 years (he thinks she has great medicine - magical powers). The hero, a half-breed Comanche, has been searching for her and in love with her for years. He finally finds her but "rescuing" her isn't so simple.

I appreciated that the hero, Long Quiet aka Walker, really loved the heroine, Shadow aka Bayleigh. It was well-written with enough happening in the plot to keep me interested.

This was my first by Joan Johnston and I had high hopes. I'm always a sucker for a good NA romance. The story summary on the back seemed very intriguing so I jumped right in. Sadly, it wasn't very good. The Native Americans in the story carry on conversations that are more appropriate in a British drawing room than on the American frontier and if I had to hear about a woman's body "blossoming like a flowers petals" once more, I thought I'd barf. I rarely put down a book, before it's finished, bu ...more
I wish I could have liked this one better. The beginning and ending were decent and had moments I really liked. The part in the middle where they were broke up for basically no reason was lame. I just prefer characters to stick together through their trials and tribulations. The whole other man threatening her family thing and so she tells the hero that she doesn't want/love him instead of sharing her problems and having him help her work them out, just doesn't work for me. And then he forgave h ...more

Since Joan Johnston is a favorite author, it was not surprising that this exciting, entertaining, deeply emotional, well-told story was un-put-down-able. The best book in The Sisters of The Lone Star Trilogy.

It's a great second novel.
Somehow the characters were more likable in Book I. He makes a huge 180 and that's a bit too much to take. I would've wished for a better integration of Native life in the second book and the future of hero & heroine.

I really liked this book. The writing was good and enough stuff happened to keep me interested. Still I rounded down from 3,5 because of some plot holes; at least they were holes in my opinion. The biggest one? The 180 the hero makes while he changes his life: beautiful and romantic as a big gesture, but sudden and not well explained. And the wolves that suddenly appeared out of thin air and then also suddenly left.

But if you just read and enjoy the ride, you'll have a great time. It's a romanti

I love RMFW's Colorado Gold conference--and one of the many good things about it is the stack of books (free & purchased) that I always bring home from it. Comanche Woman is the first I've read of the ones I picked up last weekend. I enjoyed it--enough that I've put the sequel on hold at the library. I most appreciated the way it handled the interaction of multiple cultures, showing strengths without excusing atrocious behavior. I'd recommend this book for people who like historical or weste ...more
