This is my second Nadine Crenshaw read. I just had to try another of hers after reading Edin's Embrace. IMHO, Edin's Embrace was the better novel, but this one was good. As I understand it, this is her first novel and it won an award when released in '87. So, she definitely started out strong and improved based on the 2 I've read so far. This one is what I'd term a bodice ripper, but it is on the lighter side of that genre.

A Keeper! Western Romance that Captivates

If you have not discovered Nadine Crenshaw, allow me to introduce you to a consistently 5-Star author of historical romance. Alas, you may have to buy her books used in paper but you will not regret it. Every one she wrote is in my keeper bookcase.

Mountain Mistress was her first book and it won the Golden Heart Award in 1987. I can see why. You WILL NOT regret buying this one, I promise!

This romance is one all consuming, passionate story of the relations

1. I'm a fan of Nadine Crenshaw. If you're looking for a historical romance novelist with some true talent, she's your gal. I can't begin to fathom how much research she must have done for each of her novels (I've read two beyond this one), and while that alone doesn't constitute a good

I was worried about reading this, based on reviews, but I actually really liked it. Do I believe she has Stockholm Syndrome? Yes, most likely. Would I ever think someone could fall in love with their rapist? Ick, no. But someone suffering from Stockholm? Yes.
However, for some reason, I still liked the book. Go figure.
