GoodReads Excerpt:

Fate has brought them together, but will a promise tear them apart?

In the small town of Willow Creek, Colorado, Nora Rushton spends most of her days locked up in her home with a father who resents her and fighting off unwanted marriage proposals from the wealthy Elwood Calhoun. Marked as a witch, Nora must hide her healing powers from those who wish to destroy all the witkowin—crazy women. What she doesn't know is that a bounty hunter is hot on her trail.

Lakota native Otakatay has an obligation to fulfill. He has been hired to kill the witkowin. In a time when race and difference are a threat and innocence holds no ground, courage, love and honor will bring Nora and Otakatay together as they fight for their freedom. Will the desire to fulfill his promise drive Otakatay to kill Nora? Or will the kindness he sees in her blue eyes push him to be the man he once was?

My Thoughts:
If you’re a sensitive person, you may find that Otakatay’s flashbacks will bring a tear to your eyes.  There are certain things that just seem to touch your heart and this is one of those stories.  You also have to feel sorry for the life that Nora has but she still makes the most of it.  She’s stronger than I probably would be in the same situation.  

The author gives the reader a perfect ending to a great book and it’s done with no sex.  Which goes to show you that sex does not always make for a great book.  But it’s the author who makes a great storyteller.  And it leaves you wanting to know what she has coming out next.  She currently has another book out at this time and if you go to her web site,, you can find out more about it.  They say that the third time's the charm and I'm looking forward to seeing what that charm is.

At some point, my full review will be posted at:
