Taylor is back to writing what she does best – Native American romance. Her latest book is a fierce tale of forbidden love and raging passion. The writing is strong, the characters interesting and the history rich with detail.
The drums of war beat throughout the land. Storm Dancer is a prince among the Cherokee, destined to lead his people to victory in the coming war against the whites. But he will flaunt tradition for the woman who holds his heart, Shannon O’Shea. Their spirits call to each other and he will have her and none other. Shannon has always felt like an outsider, except in Storm Dancer’s arms. They met as children, but now as adults the passion between them will not be quenched no matter what or who stands between them — especially not the white man she is forced to wed. The lovers stand alone, but in the end, love finds a way to triumph over the violence and treachery surrounding them. (ZEBRA, Jul., 352 pp., $6.99)
