Okay please forgive me for this review I'm going to make it short as possible. This book offended me greatly. It offended me to the point that I could not finish reading it. Due to that I will hope that people still read my opinion on the book even though I'll understand if they do not. This book was beyond poorly written. The author obviously did not read any history books on the time period the story was in. If you are going to do a book set in a different time period then you need to do your research or it'll be obvious you don't care.
The portrayal of the Native American culture in this book is not only insulting but disgusting as well. I understand Native American's being portrayed in a darker light considering the time period but this went far even by that standard. The way the author did a 180 once the hero was involved with the Native American certainly did not go unnoticed. I can honestly say there was nothing about this book I liked. The author couldn't even portray the speech of the characters correctly. The hero and heroine were saying things that would not have dared been said during that time period. The writing was choppy and the sentences were simplistic. I cannot in good faith recommend this book to anyone.
Sarah Hawkins survived capture by the Sioux, but after her escape she faced public scorn. Now, she'll do anything to start over, and the small town of Defiance promises the anonymity and security she needs. Before she melts into the shadows, though, it's her mission to put a great injustice to rights, and that means jeopardizing her safety once more. But this time, she's not alone. Without meaning to, Sarah has fallen under the protection of Logan Taggert, a rough-and-tumble trader unused to caring for others - and yet unable to ignore the tempting, tenacious woman's plight. Though she refuses to trust him, Logan won't leave her side, keeping her one step ahead of danger...even as she takes hold of the very thing he never thought he'd risk: his heart.
