Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
Though this book was clean there was so romance in it and a really good plot. I will be reading more from this author

I enjoyed this story overall, but was less than impressed with the "Christian" message in this story. There was the occasional prayer flung up to heaven; but the main character in the story gave no kind of witness to the Indians that she was with. Later on we learn that she was raised with a Catholic mother, which may be the reason for no evangelical bent in her life. I was quite disappointed when Maria's husband talked of the Great Spirit, Maria said that her people called Him God. Yikes! They ...more

I have read others out of the Cutter's Creek series and really enjoyed them. I was excited to find out what came of Marie after her husband was killed by indains and she was kidnapped. The clean historical romance style is true to the rest of the series but this one is extra fun because of the big culture divide and how she has to adapt to survive. If you are a fan of clean historical romances and Vivi Holt then you won't be disappointed with this story... it's a must read.

This story is easy to read and the characters, especially those in the Lakota camp, are beautifully drawn.

Read full review in the 2017 September issue of InD'tale Magazine.

This is a really good story a bit different than most those of Cutter's Creek.
A woman is kidnapped from a wagon train that is on it's way to Cutter's Creek. Her husband killed right in front of her by a raid from Lakota Indians.
She became a captive and always caught if she tried to escape.
She lived with this tribe for quite awhile and eventually was wanted by the one that killed her husband. Thankfully another member of the tribe a man she say looking at her occasionally but not in the

Maria Holloway and her husband, Fred, are travelling by wagon train to Cutter's Creek. Before they can reach their destination, a Lakota raiding party attacks, killing Fred and taking Maria captive.

Maria is a fighter and instead of giving up, she quickly learns to adapt to her situation. All she wants to do is go home, but where exactly is home? Her husband is dead, nothing is waiting for her in Cutter's Creek and her parents are still in England.

When the Chief's son, Bodaway, claims her as his

Cutter's Creek is a place for settling down, but Maria finds herself widowed and living with an Indian tribe before she even gets there! This historical romance is a little different than our down home, settling out west type of story. Vivi Holt gives us a chance to see an Indian tribe, the savagery that could happen and the integration of a white woman into Indian life. This enjoyable story has Maria living with the tribe after one of their own has killed her husband. Now months later, one of ...more

I loved this story of Maria as she adapted to the Lakota lifestyle after her husband was killed and she was kidnapped. Her husband Botta came to love her and protected her no matter what happened, even when she was the foolish one. His love was so great that he tracked her down after the sheriff took her back to civilization to ask her to come back to him and his children. The author also made it plain that the settlers did not know what to make of Maria, so they called her "That Mrs. Holloway". ...more

Maria and Boda 💞

Loved this story!! In an earlier book, when Maria Holloway was captured by the Indian warriors, I thought how horrible! But thankfully, we find that a very kindhearted and gentle man had claimed her. Boda is the chief's son. The warrior who killed Maria's English husband, Fred, is an angry and vicious man. And Anon wants Maria for himself. Will her concede to Boda?

At first, all she can think about is how to escape. But over time, she grows very close to Boda and his three

I purchased the novella Cutter's Creek Book 18:Captivated by Vivi Holt and this review was given freely.
The story of Maria Holloway's capture by the Lakota tribe and second chance at love with warrior and single father Bodaway is a poignant one. This complex story expresses both the kind and killer/reactive sides of the Native tribes, Maria's integration into the tribe, the consequences of a interracial baby, and the difficulty trying to re-assimilate into the "White" world.

This story is part of the Cutter's Creek Series. This is a sweet Historical Romance. Maria is a really strong character. Bodaway is strong and protective. I like how they learn to know each other. The little ones are so cute! The storyline is filled with twists and turns. The ending is beautiful. Paul Curtis did a good job with the narration.

Captivating story

I couldn't stop reading this book! The characters were amazing. It was so easy to understand how Maria felt, and Brodie was a unique man in his village. I wasn't how the story would end but it was wonderful. A satisfying read that touched my heart because the characters seemed so real. I would easily rate this story a ten if I could!

It was an excellent book. It kept my attention through the end of the book. I enjoyed the writers ability to meld the cultures of the Indians and the (Asico)or White people. Thank you to the author of this book. I would highly recommend this book to others.

Forsaking All Others

One imagines the horrors suffered by settlers attacked by wild, rampaging Indians (alternatively, peaceful tribesmen defending their homesteads against evil, greedy, white-skinned devils who denuded the landscape, destroyed the environment, and wiped out the local flora and fauna with abandon while slaughtering the innocent prior inhabitants of the land). Okay, that just slipped out, but rather presents the extremes of thought extant both then and now regarding the
