I love historical western paranormals and so I was eager to jump right into this one. The paranormal aspect was relatively light, but it was the catalyst for the story. The story is interesting because it includes some darker elements without the tone being too dark or angsty when presenting them.

Otakatay is a half-breed Lakota who has been beaten up by life and has little humanity left in him after what he has done in his life. He hates the white man, but needs the white man’s money so he works as an assassin to take out the witch women.

Nora Rushton lives a sheltered life by necessity with her father. She longs for companionship and the chance at a normal life with husband and family, but her healing gift curses her to move within the shadows as a looker on at life.

Nora and Otakatay meet up and at first he terrifies her, but then slowly she gets past the face he presents to the world. Otakatay is at a loss when he learns his next job is Nora. He can’t imagine ending Nora’s life and extinguishing her goodness and sunshine.

This book had my attention from the first page. The plot was interesting and the characters more so. The story perspectives were between Nora and Otakatay mostly, but give the villain’s side too. I loved to hate that man whose evil touched and destroyed so many. The romance between Nora and Otakatay was so well done. It built from suspicion and hate to friendship, love and passion. They both went through so many hard things, but faced it with strength. Loved them together.

The western feel to the story was just right for a romance. It was there, but not overpowering just like the paranormal healing element.

I do have to toss out that I just loved the animals in this one. They were as much secondary characters as the humans. Otakatay’s horse was a hoot.

All in all, this was a fab read that those who love to blend their genres of western paranormal romance with a sultry hero and heroine should definitely pick up and read.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
