This story was very difficult to get through as it was written. It was tough due to the length of the story. If the storyline about Jenna and Running Wolf had been broken into two books with the first book being about her being taken captive and her life in his world and then the second book about her going back to her previous “white” world and being taken captive by another Indian group and her struggle to return to Running Wolf, I could have easily read them and appreciated them for how they were split up.
I don’t have problems with the heroine of the story jumping into the world that she has been forced to live in but in this case Jenna adapted a little too easily to her captive world which I was surprised by considering the era and her life in the “white” world. I liked Jenna and Running Wolf but the entire storyline got bogged down with too many other characters being introduced and leaving the scene and then returning. The antagonists of this couple were introduced in the beginning and then slightly forgotten about. Then thrust back into the readers world and, from my point of view, they lingered too long in the storyline.
I am not saying that descriptive storyline is a bad thing, but this book seemed to languish and stutter. There was heat and immediate attraction between Jenna and Running Wolf but it seemed to disappear within the monotony of the storyline.

Laurel Cremant is an opinionated author and reader of romance with a wicked sense of humor. RNIC was smart (or crazy) to bring her on as a blogger. In 2016 she took over the management of this site and relishes her new title of “Overlord of Awesome”
