As with me in spite of fact that I m not fully white I would have much preferred to see a who white I would have much preferred to see a heroine who willing to take society s scorn for loving a Native man not one who basically agreed with the bigotry One last complaint albeit a minor one the hero s constant continual use of the nickname brat for the heroine was a turn off I m kinda torn here On one hand it was an enjoyable read plenty of action with a reat Hero and a perfectly awful character that I love to hate Cleveland Brewster Jr On the other
HAND THE HEROINE STARTS OUT A SPOILED WHINY BRAT the heroine starts out a spoiled whiny brat one cannot fathom why perfectly wonderful Keso would even want to marry her Then there s the incest angle I was disturbed that throughout the first half of the book Wannie our heroine kept thinking of Keso as her brother They were orphaned and raised together so it s not biologically incestuous but both characters kept thinking of how they were related That disturbed me Like when Keso who was both father and brother to Wannie thinks I raised her to marry me Blech Or when Wannie is having all these erotic thoughts about Keso and then wonders why Cleve her fiance is Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, getting u Needs a second book do theyet married and have kids.
