Firstly, I already read the 1st book of this series about a year ago. And though I read it, I forgot already some of the scenes on the first book. Now I read this book, I'm again enamored by Julie Garwood writing. She done it again, the quality of the story and the twist kept me hours in full agony. Who is the real Pagan? It kept me awake at night because of my itchiness to finish this book and to finally meet the Pagan. But, with the length of the book, I waited for 3 days more to finally meet ***. I don't want to spoil anyone. It's up to you to find it out. It kept me rattled along the way, hope you feel the same curiousness crept within me while reading the novel. It's good. ...more
I was amazed and dazed. Never thought I had this powerful urge to curse and kill someone mentally who is "fictionally alive" The feeling was amazing.
I was amazed and dazed. Never thought I had this powerful urge to curse and kill someone mentally who is "fictionally alive" at the same time laughed like a loco too. The story itself was a piece of art, a tale of life and promise - a promise that is NOT meant to be broken.
Ty Sanders second son of Cy Sanders. Rebel and independent man who answers for himself alone. He had a major role for the heroine's life. Forced by an errand, his life undergone roller coaster once he step in Mexico. An errand that will transform his life, forever.
Jenny Jones was a hell-a-lot of a man, living inside of a woman's body. She was rigid as a tree and aggressive as a buffalo. Lived and born in slums.
I've taken in wash, I've skinned buffalo carcasses, which is the worst job on this planet, I've signed on as a roustabout, and most recently, I've driven a mule team and hauled freight for the Comden outfit. Except for washing, none of those jobs is what you'd call women's work.
She earned her keeps and she's fricking good in her job too. She was not a lady nor a girl. She lived in a way she only knew, and she never cared to anyone who begrudgingly askancing her. Though, I admit she had her own sets of fault because of her upbringing. What truly caught my attention was her undying promise. An irrevocable and eternal promise only few who knew how to use it.
Honesty is all I've got.
And she took the promise by heart. I really love her character to the bone. A woman with dignity and honor. With this mind-set, she had another chance to live her life.
Major decisions, passion, hope and love...all mixed up in this juicy novel.
This is a beautiful story created by a master in the romance genre. Once again, Miss Maggie Osborne enamored our young hopeful hearts to believe that there is love somewhere between good and evil....more

This book gave me one hell-of-a-ride, and it was smokin' hot (sounds like a true blood Texans). All characters were well defined and furnished as it should be. No adjustments or alteration needed, just a wild imagination and you're in for a ride, honey. haha. I was clearly amazed by Lisa Kleypas for she didn't jump from historical to comtemporary, she also nailed it! She definitely owned the romance genre. And I, as one of her undying fans, salute her for her wicked, incomparable stories not just during Elizabeth or Victorian period but also during our present times.
I cannot add nor extract anymore from what my GR friends had already been said and will say in the future. So it's up to you, future readers to criticize (if their is worth criticizing for) and adore the heroes inside this 418 pages novel. If you are up to a fast, wild, funny, chick-lit novel, give this a shot, and trust me, you'll savor every words in it.
The funny part was I read this first before the other two novels of this series. I didn't know that this was the 3rd book for Travises novels. WithoutThe funny part was I read this first before the other two novels of this series. I didn't know that this was the 3rd book for Travises novels. Without any background from the 2 books, I can say this book can stand alone even if, like me, you are naive of the series. Fast, sweet and funny novel. One of many great books by Lisa Kleypas. Well, the price payed of triple times when I started reading this. warning! never read this during a busy week swear! You don't want to know what will the conclusion be. ;)...more

Comanche raids into Mexico traditionally took place during the full moon, when the Comanche could see to ride at night. This led to the term "ComancheComanche raids into Mexico traditionally took place during the full moon, when the Comanche could see to ride at night. This led to the term "Comanche Moon," during which the Comanche raided for horses, captives, and weapons.
A very well woven tale of revenge, hatred, hope and love. Set back during 1890's, Comanche people are infamous for their reputation. Savage natives who kidnapped white women for their revenge to those white men, who stolen their lands and ravished their women. "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
This is a very powerful novel. It portrays various emotions full of angst, grief and revenge. Catherine Anderson injects the reader with the importance of equality. I'm deeply moved by the words she used in her characters. The honesty and uniqueness of every characters were engraved in my soul.
I thoroughly embraced the passion of the hero, Hunter, a half Comanche and a white man. Being tortured by his past, he set himself to retaliate his family. With the knowledge of the Prophecy, he met his destiny at the world he came to hate...Loretta Simpson, an orphan after her parents were killed by the hands of Comanche. She still lived in her nightmare and never awoken from the tragedy she witnessed. The terror was still deep within herself that she cannot surpassed the idea of the warriors will return again. The fear inside her was so great that she can no longer able to speak a word. Despite the hatred between two worlds, they will find with each other the prophecy that will unite the opposite world together.
A great force will shattered their lives and will leave a mark for the next generation to see.
I love this book without comparison. I read this story last year and I can say that this novel imprinted within me. I realized when I look back every now and then to the days I read it (with great passion), I can still see myself on the scenes and plots like I'm really part of the story ~ that was the magic of Catherine Anderson. She can weave simple stories and turn it into a beautiful masterpiece. And this is truly a work of art.
I shall read it again in the future, and be in love all over again....more
