Travelling west of the colonies with a small party in 1756, Shannon O'Shea loses her way in the wilderness, soon drenched by driving rains and forced by powerful winds into the shelter of a cave. Stripping quickly, she is drawn to the flickering warmth of a fire deep within, but she stops cold - surely she must be dreaming. Before her stands a Cherokee brave, tall and broa ...more

It's a pizzle, it's a tumescence, it's a spear, it's a penis! No, really. It's astounding the words that Taylor comes up with to describe a man's genitals. I feel that it almost deserves a commendation. Just on basis of "how the fuck did this come about?" Most romance authors will confine themselves to three or maybe four metaphors or euphemisms to refer to genitalia of the male persuasion. Not so here. Taylor has at least double digits. That is all.

Okay, not really. Overall, this was an enterta

Janelle Taylor’s Cherokee Storm is a heartfelt story about two people from two different worlds who must fight against everything to be together. Fans of a truly compelling and emotional love story set during the Seven Years War and tumultuous years of American settlement will love this novel.

Shannon O’Shea is a young girl who has too often seen the horrors of the open frontier. One day, she ventures away from her party only to become lost in a rain storm. She immediately seeks shelter in a near
Not great...just okay...
I enjoyed the writing and the first few chapters. Then the story seemed to go all over the place and I gave up.

Shannon has spent the last few years in a tavern as an indentured servant. She has worked hard to retain her virtue, fighting off men. Now she is returning to her father's ranch.

After she gets lost in a storm, she encounters Storm Dancer, who was her childhood friend, and they shelter the night in a cave. During this night she is petrified he will "have his way with her."

And yet, in th

Having read the summary, I thought that this book would have been better but alas while I did enjoy it, I was mistaken. It actually leaves me hesitant to read another book from her though it is a moderate read.

This story while starting rather good, falls short once it hits the middle, more so towards the end. The great thing about it however, is that there is always something going on to keep you interested. This is pulled off by the vast amount of characters that are all diverse and engaging.
The novel raced along at a breath taking pace. Shannon O'Shea, a beautiful blond has trouble fending off men but there is only one she wants, the Cherokee warrior, Storm Dancer. He in turn wants her but his mother wants him to marry another. Shannon's father too disapproves and sends her away to marry a white
man. Meanwhile war erupts around them as the Huron, Delaware, Shawnee, Creek and Cherokee attempt to keep the white man out of their land. It doesn't help matters that these tribes also cons
I definitely enjoyed this book, quite a change from the romances I usually read which are set in 19th century England. This book is set in 1756 in the Smoky Mountains. I liked how the author included the tensions going on at this time due to the French and Indian War; confusion over who to trust/ally with on all sides of the conflict. Of course the heroine, Shannon, falls into a forbidden love with Storm Dancer, the Cherokee prophet. I could have done without the prophet part, but it wasn't too ...more
I read the reviews on Amazon for this book, and they were not very positive. I wasn't expecting much when I picked it up from the library, but was pleasantly surprised. It was a pretty romantic story. Lots of longing and situation after situation keeping the Irish girl and the Cherokee warrior apart. I am not too familiar with Native American history, but it seemed authentic. The story did get bogged down in the details a bit, but overall a decent romance. A nice change from my usual diet of Reg ...more
I have to admit that I did not finish this book, and so the rating that I have given it may not be accurate to the story's worth. That being said, I really could not get into the nitty gritty details of the story, but I did like the concept and the climax of the story was entertaining enough. I will probably update this review some day and give it the rating it deserves.
I liked this book ... prob not as much as the last one i read .. but was a good story .. and i actually felt like i was there

wopuld recommend for fans of the NA romance genre

only niggle i would have is that it seemed to end too soon and there wasnt really an epilogue (really wanted to see what happened in future .. like did she have kids ?)

This book was borderline erotic romance in my opinion. Scandalous! Having read Janelle's Taylor older work and this being a newer one, I'd have to say that she should definitely write more Native American romances. This was unlike the old stuff, sort the evolution of an author.
I'm not even gonna front, I really liked this book. I usually don't read romance novels but I picked this one up because I have Cherokee lineage, so it caught my eye. I finished reading it in 2 days. It's a good combination of romance and action.
4-4.5 stars...could have been longer...ending was abrupt...and their love seems to be just mostly filled with lust really...had a lot more potential with the chosen themes...

but overall, a good read..;)
This is one good book. Irish trader's daughter, Cherokees, Shawnees, English redcoats, french army, new settlers etc...
The ending could of been a bit more stretched out but still good.
My first by JT, and I must say it was very enjoyable. Were there an Epilogue to their story it would have easily been a 5 star read.
This was easily the best NA book I have read to date.
entertaining enough. not a keeper.
