Can Huyana find the happiness she craves and allow herself to be claimed by her Montana cowboy?
This is the third book in the series. I think they should be read in order to fully understand what they are referring to at times, however you could probably read it as a standalone. I really liked this book. Huyana is a woman of mixed race; she is part white and part Sioux. She has lived her whole life feeling like she is less because of it. She feels like she was cursed from the very moment of her conception. She now works for the Duggans taking care of Catherine's Uncle William. Matthew Duggan tracked her down in Virginia City to offer her the job. William's wife Edie recently died and he is on the decline. He has bouts of lucidity and then seems to lose himself as if he can't deal with the fact that his wife is no longer living. Huyana is kind, caring, and understands what he is going through. She is only 25 but has had a very hard life. She has feeling for Matthew however believes that nothing could ever come of them. How could she ever tell him of her past? Why would he want to be with her when he could be with a white woman? One day when Catherine and Matthew come to check on William they find Huyana cowering and William above her looking very angry. Matthew is able to calm William down and Catherine helps Huyana clean up a bit. Matthew feels for Huyana like he has never felt for a woman before. He wants to get to know her and she if she has feelings for him as well. He decides to stay with Huyana and help care for William on his tougher days. They quickly realize they both have feeling for each other. Will they be able to be a couple or will Huyana's secrets change the way Matthew feels for her? Will Matthew want to deal with the difficulty that being with an Indian woman will bring? This book and the series are a great read. I love reading about the “Old West” and how life was so different back then. Each book deals with a different difficulty for the time. The Duggans are a great family and don’t let others people views dictate how they feel or act. They are there for each other and love fiercely. I can’t wait to see if there will be another book in this series. I love all the characters and the books are wonderfully written. Molly Wishlade has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I look forward to reading more books by her in the future.
Molly Ann Wishlade has always been an avid reader and writer of stories. Her lifetime of reading has taken her from the magical worlds of The Faraway Tree and The Borrowers, to the Greek myths and legends, to Sweet Valley High and Judy Blume's Forever, to Asimov's science fiction, Jane Eyre's torment and Stephen King's masterpieces. More recently she has wandered through the vivid historicals of Philippa Gregory; the bubbly, gritty delights of Adele Parks and the fast paced thrillers of James Patterson. She loves getting lost in a novel and often regrets finishing one as the characters are usually missed like old friends. She regularly indulges her insatiable hunger for romance and passion in the delicious worlds created by romantic novelists and is working on several of her own!
What precious spare time she has is spent with her family (one gorgeous husband and two bright and beautiful children), taking long walks around the beautiful Welsh countryside (although she's still waiting for the rescue greyhound she wants to accompany her), cooking her own secret recipe curries, drinking Earl Grey (in copious amounts) and discovering delicious wines. Oh, and she also loves to ski and can't wait to go again! And buying shoes!
She wants to take readers on the rollercoaster that is life through the creation of her own characters, relationships and worlds.
She appreciates feedback, recipes and wine recommendations.
