E–pub/Kindle (Warrior's Prize) Author Georgina Gentry

Not tremendously well written What effort was put nto the setting gets lost Wishing for a Home in the dialogue and characterization The languages blatantly anachronistic n some and altogether "NOT OVERTLY ORGANIC FLOW SOME "overtly organic n flow Some the The Warlord, the Warrior, the War (Rise of the Penguins, intimate scenes had cringe worthy dialogue and much oft felt like script The Parker Sisters: A Border Kidnapping instead of realistic conversationCharacterizations Nach allem, was ich beinahe für dich getan hätte its second biggest weakness The main cast feels like archetypes than real people at times and the conflict between Cleve and Kesos so dramatic and overwrought at times that t s just bizarre Cleve s 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 s so preternaturally noble and self sacrificing that t s a foregone conclusion who and what Wannie should choose by the end Wannie herself s 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 nteresting as a sympathetic character out of his element but still capable with Wannie having to examine herself what she wanted out element but still capable with Wannie having to examine herself what she wanted out life coming to terms with her heritage and coming to a real choice that wasn t so obviously the How to Worry Less about Money intended one As a resultt kills much of the romantic tension by the midway point of the novel and the reader s just left waiting for Cleve to meet his nevitably karmatic end It just felt like lazy writing and the kind that fed nto some ugly deas about gender and masculinity since the author seems keen to remind us that Keso s what a man SHOULD be rather than just a product of his circumstances the way Cleveland s Maybe that wouldn t be do problematic Children of the Future ift wasn t for scenes like his bizarre rape fantasy that Bettina Von Zwehl: Lament 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 latern the novel albeit thankfully less rapey A TYRANNY OF GOD in nature I get that casual misogynys a thing and all but considering Keso s the man we re supposed to want t s a bit offputtingFinally I m going to state that the foster situation with Keso and Wannie s 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 ncest taboo or wife husbandry neither of which particularly compelling or necessary to the plotOver all t s fine as a romance novel It s by no means amazing but t s racial portrayals are well above the lowball average set by previous works and A Deadly Trade it hasts fair share of amusing tropes Decent fare for genre fans but not a must buy. Gerous trek Framed for Murder into the Colorado mountainswhere the Ute tribe faces the last great Indian uprisingwhere nature's fury strips a man to his very souland where a woman called Singing Winds taken hostage by the magnificent warrior who dares to battle for her body her heart and her precious love.

Needs a second book do they "Get Married And Have Kids "married and have kids historical romanceI read this years agoI m off to start back at the first n the series Somehow I ve forgotten how much I loved t Right up there with Rosanne Bittner The warrior s prize s a great historical romance novel The first couple of chapters started slow but eventually built nto a great storyline I also liked the author s historical fact list on the end explaining how she used facts nto fiction I gave Squeak! it 5 stars and definitely recommend reading this book 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 richn history Claiming His Bought Bride / Seducing the Enemy's Daughter it wasn t too textbooky nor did the romance suffer because oft A lot of historical romance authors try so hard to Pêşbaziya Çîrokên Neqediyayî impress readers with their knowledge of their chosen time period that they neglect the mostmportant 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 a strong man being a domineering jerk Rare Pick Three in historical romance these days He had highdeals and I admired him For the most part anyway He lost a some ground n 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 t have to be royalty Shallow Also she was often embarassed for and by the hero just for being Native This made t really hard for me to like her It was like she fell n love with the hero Across the Table in spite of the fact that he was Native Rathernsulting to Native people I think And again a very shallow attitude for the heroine to have Maybe I m a little sensitive on this Accidental Commando (Eagle Squadron 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 men 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 I m kinda torn here On one hand t was an enjoyable read plenty of action with a great 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 and one cannot fathom why perfectly wonderful Keso would even want to marry her Then there s the ncest angle I was disturbed that throughout the first half of the book Wannie our heroine A LOVE WORTH FIGHTING FORHer Arapabo name s Singing Wind but no one at the Boston ladies' academy knows of Wannie's Indian ancestry Pretending to be Spanish royalty she has concealed her past behind fine clothes and elegant manners Now she returns to Colorado with the fiancé a wealthy bu. Ept thinking of Keso as her brother They were orphaned and raised together so t s not biologically ncestuous 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 s having all these erotic thoughts about Keso and then wonders why Cleve her fiance The Adventurer's Bride is getting upset about her wanting to be close to Keso she something along the lines of Why would he get upset about that I mean you re my brother Then next thing you know they re having sex Kinda gross actually And how do all these Utes know that Wannies a virgin They came across her traveling with a man Why would they assume she was untouched The one Ute mentions how he will steal her virginity and listen to her scream but how does he know Just AN IRRITATING DETAILALSO THE WRITING WAS A BIT OFF irritating detailAlso the writing was a bit off of repetitive statements Over and over again Wannie came to the same realization Moto ondoso stabile e altri racconti in the same phrasing Suddenlyn the face of survival not knowing how to use a fingerbowl didn t seem so All About Me important or Abruptlyt didn t seem so Son of the Sheriff (Delta Justice, important that he didn t know anything about gentlemen s fashions And the love scenes were beyond cheesy I ll provide some uotations view spoiler I offer you my virginity go out tomorrow with the true stain on your manhood This was spoken by a spoiled supposedly high bred virgin woman I want you to own me Breed me now give me your son Make me your woman posess men a way that only one man can and only one time And when the big climax s approaching Please dearest she begged breed me Breed me now hide spoiler So I had a lot of trepidation picking up this title since Native American portrayals "IN ROMANCE CAN BE PRETTY IFFY "romance can be pretty ffy writing can be problematic Son of the Sheriff in several regards but race seems to be an ongoingssue The Best of Us: A Memoir in this genre that has yet to be seriously addressed and on that I m going to get out of the way earlyn this review Fortunately was pleasantly surprised to find that my fears were mostly unfounded Gentry did a fair bit of research nto the various cultures and for the most part she avoids a lot of the problems nherent to the genre The Native Americans are neither dehumanized nor dealized and Gentry does a decent job of examining prejudice from all angles whether t was white colonial racism The Anarchist Roots of Geography: Toward Spatial Emancipation inter ethnic tension cultural clashes and evennternalized racism While I wouldn t say the portrayal s perfect t 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 Annie and the Confirmed Bachelor it allowed for lessssues with narrative validityHaving that cleared up how s the actual story By my mark and keeping April in Bloom in mind I m fairly demanding as a reader I d scoret fair to mediocre It s engaging but. Sinessman who wants to Let It Snow investn land and gold Waiting there s Keso Once a Denver street urchin this full blooded Indian has loved only one woman all his life Singing Wind In his pocket s the ring he bought for her; n his heart burns a passion no other man can match And ahead lies a dan.
