Well there were some things to like about this book This historical detail was very well done It s obvious that the author did her homework But while this book was rich in history it wasn t too textbooky nor did the romance suffer because of it A lot of historical romance authors try so hard to impress readers with their knowledge of their chosen time period that they neglect the most important part of the book the relationship between the hero and heroine Thankfully that didn t happen here I also liked the hero I felt that he was a strong man without being a domineering jerk Rare in historical romance these days He had high ideals and I admired him For the most part anyway He lost a some ground in my opinion because of his high and undeserved opinion of the heroine The heroine was what spoiled this book for me She was so shallow All she cared about was clothes jewels parties and appearances First off I really didn t like that she was ashamed of her Native American heritage But to go so far as to claim that she s Spanish royalty That s really crossing the line Couldn t she just say that she s Spanish Why does it have to be royalty Shallow Also she was often embarassed for and by the hero just for being Native This made it really hard for me to like her It was like she fell in love with the hero in spite of the fact that he was Native Rather insulting to Native people I think And again a very shallow attitude for the heroine to have Maybe I m a little sensitive on this issue than most since while I m not Native I am of mixed blood I certainly wouldn t want to be with someone who was with me in spite of the fact that I m not fully white I would have much preferred to see a heroine who was 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 Desirada to invest in land and gold Waiting The Power and the Glory there is Keso Once a Denver street urchin Le Jeu du monde this full blooded Indian has loved only one woman all his life Singing Wind In his pocket is Staggerford's Indian the ring he bought for her; in his heart burns a passion no other man can match And ahead lies a dan.

So I had a lot of trepidation picking up this title since Native American portrayals in romance can be pretty iffy Romance writing can be problematic in several regards but race seems to be an ongoing issue in this genre that has yet to be seriously addressed and on that I m going to get out of the way early in this review Fortunately was pleasantly surprised to find that my fears were mostly unfounded Gentry did a fair bit of research into the various cultures and for the most part she avoids a lot of the problems inherent to the genre The Native Americans are neither dehumanized nor idealized and Gentry does a decent job of examining prejudice from all angles whether it was white colonial racism inter ethnic tension cultural clashes and even internalized racism While I wouldn t say the portrayal is perfect it s still leagues above most of what s out there and the characters at least feel human regardless of what side their own I think a wise choice on the author s part was to have Keso and Wannie raised amidst white cultural norms because it allowed for less issues with narrative validityHaving that cleared up how s the actual story By my mark and keeping in mind I m fairly demanding as a reader I d score it fair to mediocre It s engaging but not tremendously well written What effort was put into the setting gets lost in the dialogue and characterization The language is blatantly anachronistic in some places and altogether not overtly organic in flow Some of the intimate scenes had cringe worthy dialogue and much of it felt like script instead of realistic conversationCharacterization is its second biggest weakness The main cast feels like archetypes than real people at times and the conflict between Cleve and Keso is so dramatic and overwrought at times that it s just bizarre Cleve is so frustrating as a character because he s a bastard and the author WANTS you to think he s a bastard that he stops being anything but THE ANTAGONIST after awhile Meanwhile Keso is so preternaturally noble and self sacrificing that it s a foregone conclusion who and what Wannie should choose by the end Wannie herself is the most human feeling of the lot having her fair share of better and worse ualities but her frustrating na vet to the behavior of the men around her takes away some of her compelling undertones She feels like a woman taken along for the ride than one making any active choice IMO Cleve would have been far interesting as a sympathetic character out of his element but still capable with Wannie having to examine herself what she wanted out of life coming to terms with her heritage and coming to a real choice that wasn t so obviously the intended one As a result it kills much of the romantic tension by the midway point of the novel and the reader is just left waiting for Cleve to meet his inevitably karmatic end It just felt like lazy writing and the kind that fed into some ugly ideas about gender and masculinity since the author seems keen to remind us that Keso is what a man SHOULD be rather than just a product of his circumstances the way Cleveland is Maybe that wouldn t be do problematic if it wasn t for scenes like his bizarre rape fantasy that involved him stealing Wannie away from an entourage and taking her to be his warrior s prize A vision that of course portends a real event later in the novel albeit thankfully less rapey in nature I get that casual misogyny is a thing and all but considering Keso is the man we re supposed to want it s a bit offputtingFinally I m going to state that the foster situation with Keso and Wannie is just bizarre to me Why complicate their relationship with an actual familial bond Why not just have them be childhood friends It adds a very ueer dimension to the emerging romance between the two one that s either toeing the line of incest taboo or wife husbandry neither of which particularly compelling or necessary to the plotOver all it s fine as a romance novel It s by no means amazing but it s racial portrayals are well above the lowball average set by previous works and it has its fair share of amusing tropes Decent fare for genre fans but not a must buy
