Love in the Wind is a bodice-rippery type Native American/western historical. The book tells the story of how Katy Marie Alvarez, a pampered white girl, falls for her Cheyenne owner Iron Wing after she is given to him by his friend. Katy was the only survivor of an Apache attack on a stagecoach when she was found by a Cheyenne warrior who took her to his camp and gave her to Iron Wing.

The first half of the book is filled with tension between Katy and Iron Wing as she adjusts to life with the Ch...more
I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book by Madeline Baker that I have read and I'm sure that I'll read some more. I absolutly hate it when I'm reading "kidnapped by Indians" theme and the h is in love with the H before they even reach his tribe. In this book it takes the h a while before she falls in love with the H and then even more time before she admits it to herself. Imo, that's more realistic. The only problem that I had with this book, and it's a small one, is the language. The...more
This book has forced seduction but I actually preferred the kidnapper over the kidnap-ee. God, why did all these men fall over her? Why did they risk their lives for this spoiled brat? Jeez Louise.

Why have kids with one?

Iron Wing was possessive and all alpha. Now him I liked. I hated his bittersweet...more

Gotta love a brooding scarred hero!
loved this author in 80s and 90s could not put down
The book was good, not great. I agree with MelissaB's review, except I didn't like it quite as much. I'd save your money and pass on this one, unless you can find it at your local library.
I can’t believe how bad this book is.
Loved it! I've read it more than once.
