what an amazing story November 1, 2013 By Shelleyanne Fogarty
Well written, a page turner read it in a few hours and was sad that this amazing story ended. I have found a new must read author, she will join my list along with Lora Leigh, Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon and many other great romance authors. This book is a 5 star must buy

Feeling small and dainty was never an experience for Fran Jamison. At 5’11” she looked eye to eye with most men and that hit them in their insecurities. As a result, she was often the butt of jokes and ridicule from her contemporaries. Except for Jack Gerrard. He was always nice. But with her firmly ingrained inferiority complex Fran shot him down in flames when he worked up the courage to buck his buddies and ask her out. And she’s regretted it ever since.
Both Fran and Jack are dreading their reunion, so when Jack agrees to pick up Fran from the airport, along with some of his former friends who used to torment Fran, he makes it clear he’ll allow no one to intimidate her. He stakes his claim immediately and makes it obvious to all who are observing that she’s his. Now he just has to convince her.
When Fran realizes her ride is none other than the star of her fantasies Jack Gerrard, she has a minor breakdown. What should have been a group of old classmates riding in a van ends up being Fran and Jack alone in a parking garage. And the sparks fly as well as the buttons on her blouse. Not sure how to handle the inflammatory emotions and physical reactions, she cuts and runs. But Jack is good at chasing...
The predator and the prey. A favorite theme for a reason. It took years of self-examination as well as therapy but Fran is happy in her skin and she exudes a confidence all men find attractive. To one man she’s utterly irresistible and always has been. The seduction and stalking of Fran made for a hot and steamy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. And her man can cook, too!

"Fran, I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved this print edition of two of my favorite e-books, JILLIAN'S JOB and WOMAN ON FIRE! I already loved both books in their e-book format, but holding this beautiful book in my hands and seeing your autograph sort of changed the entire sensation for me. I have read each novella several times and will read them over and over again. Keep writing beautiful, hot, funny books that make me laugh, cry, and sizzle as I turn the pages! B. J."(less)

But the love between this married couple was enough to make me sit up and take note that adding a bit of spice to a marriage can perk up a relationship wonderfully...as long as it's consensual! I loved the novella, and would recommend it to those who are open to light BDSM and a warm love story with a very sensual twist. YUM!(less)
Right from the beginning, despite the bristling emotions and the fact that Az and Cheyenne have got off to a bad start, the sexual tension sizzles. Az employed Cheyenne based on her NA name, and when he comes face to face with her for the first time and sees she’s a redheaded Caucasian, he isn’t very pleased. He’d wanted a “real” NA to teach at his school. However, he doesn’t know that Cheyenne is a real NA, albeit in mind and spirit. She was brought up by her mother and NA stepfather, raised with all the beautiful NA teachings.
When she finds herself with nowhere to stay, Az takes her home, where she meets his mother Maude, who, by the way, is a great character. Maude knows exactly how things are going to play out and encourages the couple to get together. The couple soon discover their attraction to one another goes deeper than your average lusting and links to their past.
Az is a likeable character, even if he does frustrate the hell out of Cheyenne, and he has left his famous past behind in order to do good in the world by running his res school. He puts down his own money to pay for many things to do with education, and I admired him for that.
I don’t know why, but lately I’ve had a “thing” about NA heroes in books, which is why I chose this one to read. There’s something about them…maybe the long hair, maybe the distinctive looks, but whatever it is, Az met up to my expectations and gave me many delicious images. Would it be crazy of me to say I was jealous of Cheyenne? Probably, but I was.

Azrael Thunder Horse never thought another Anglo woman could possibly knock him for a loop after leaving Hollywood. Despite the instant shot of lust he feels when he first lays eyes on his new Native American Studies teacher, he’s determined to get rid of her. After all…she misled him with that damn Indian name of hers! But the stubborn redhead has a thing or two to say when he tries to fire her.
Cheyenne Red Wolf has never met a more maddening, arrogant, downright irritating man. He hates her on sight. Too bad he’s the hottest thing she’s ever seen…and her new boss. The man tried to fire her because she wasn’t a “real” Indian. Good thing he can’t stand her, because she sure as hell wouldn’t be able to say no to all that sexy, hardheaded, Lakota masculinity.
With its feisty heroine and stubborn hero this book grabs your attention right from the start. The battle of wills between Cheyenne Red Wolf and Azrael Thunder Horse is a great read. Cheyenne may not have been born a Native American but she is definitely one in her heart. She is a strong woman and shows her backbone when she stands up to her boss, Azrael when they first meet. Azrael is a man of great depth he may seem cold and arrogant on the outside but on the inside he is full of emotions. Not wanting to be hurt he puts up a shield to keep everyone away. Yet he looses himself when it comes to Cheyenne.
I really enjoyed watching Azrael open up and show his feelings to Cheyenne. Seeing a hardened man like him find his heart and love again was a sweet read. The instant connection and the love that the two share is a wondrous thing. As Cheyenne surprises Azrael at every turn she endears herself to Azrael. Not only do we meet these two wonderful people we get to meet Azrael’s mother who is a great character herself. I loved all of the scenes that she was in. Especially the one with Azrael where he must come to terms with his feelings for Cheyenne and Maude puts him in his place.
As always Fran Lee writes a wonderful story with characters full of depth and emotions. This is a well-written book that should not be missed. (less)
