I can't do it. I just can't endure any more of this bad, stilted writing. I would swear this author is not a native English speaker if I didn't know better, the writing and dialogue sound like they were translated or something. The conversations did not sound like any person I know talks, people don't say things the way she was writing. I skipped to the end where the hero was showing his new daughter to his guy friends who were gushing that she was the prettiest baby they had ever seen. Dude - guys don't say things like that! So I quit another one. Sadly, I have enjoyed Native American historicals written by this author in the 1990's, so I have no clue why this was so bad for the four chapters I managed to try to read.

AgentScully Hmmm I've read one of this author's NA books and I don't remember amateurish writing.

MelissaB Her writing was pretty good in those NA books which is why I am scratching my head
