Start your review of Tykota's Woman
Tykota was six years old when his father, the chief of the Perdenelas tribe, sent him to live with a white friend because he was afraid for the boy's life after multiple attempts to kill him. After nineteen years living away from his tribe, it is finally time for Tykota to go back and take his place as chief of the tribe after the death of his father. He spent those nineteen years living in England and on a ranch in Texas with his white family, the Silverhorns, at the request of his father.


2.5 stars

Well this is certainly the LAST time I take a chance on a book until I have more info from reliable sources.

To say that I don't care for the writing style is being polite. Since I am not always polite, let me say that this was super cheesy and melodramatic. The characters were like bad actors from a 1930's movie.

Well here's what I liked:

1. A relatively strong heroine
2. Decent descriptions of the land and atmosphere

What I didn't like:

1. The book could have been 100 pages

I'm lucky with my current phase of Indian romances that they are all being so different in story. This one is also unlike another I have read. Instead of a woman being taken to a tribe, the Indian male has left his tribe as a child to protect his life and been raised in the white world. To fulfill a promise to his father, who has now died, he is supposed to return and lead the tribe as chief. He feels caught between two worlds, and during his journey, rescues a woman he falls in love

I like Indian stories, this story was interesting and exciting.

passionate, riveting, and loving. It kept me reading quickly to find out the outcome. Strong woman and even stronger man. Living to survive together. Loving enough to let go for the greater good. luckily in the end they met the typical love story finale.

Oh, my god, the constant back-and-forth with these two. Just shoot one of them and put this story out of its indecisive misery already.

It's not terrible, but it's also not terribly compelling or memorable. I suppose it doesn't help that I have a real aversion to idiot heroines who pre-judge and won't STFU.

I loved it!! As Tykota said "where there is love, it will find a way!"

Tykotas Woman

This was a different kind of historical romance for me. While I didn’t love it like Velvet Chains it did keep me interested to the end of the book. This was also my first historical romance with an Indian setting so it might be that I am just use to the dukes and duchess. Either way it was good just not my favorite.

Very few stories stir emotions in me to the point of tears .. this book, however, made me cry in sadness as tho my heart were the one breaking .. in joy as if l were the one in love! What a treat for the senses!

Sweet story

This is my first book by this author. It was refreshing to read a story with characters that are well developed and whose love for each other is experienced through their time together. I will definitely be reading another!

There are a lot of wonderful aspects of this story. Overall I enjoyed the author's writing style and the story kept me turning the pages. The story was plausible, and both H/h are lovely characters that I felt sympathy for and I was definitely rooting for them to be together throughout. Although I did not cry or laugh out loud, I was smiling a lot while I read the book and felt sorrow along with the characters. There are also a lot of secondary characters that are introduced and likeable. The ...more

I enjoyed this romance immensely. Great plot and such loveable characters, especially Tykota and Makinna. I was so enamored with the Indian wisdom and love of the land . I was rooting and crying for those two star-crossed lovers to be together and I wish I had a Tykota real-life boyfriend. :-)

AWESOME read and will not disappoint.
