White Dusk by Susan Edwards

White Dusk

Swift Foot's heart is broken and he feels terribly alone, ever since leaving the woman he loves. Now he has returned to marry Small Bird to hopefully end the war started when his father betrayed his people. Small Bird knows that she is destined to walk beside Swift Foot no matter if he chooses to believe it or not. Although a strange passion burns between them old regrets stand between them that must be laid to rest. All the while the enemy is planning his revenge and plans to use Small Bird as the bait.

This is the second book in the White series and it was full of heart ache. Each character has been through something that has broken their heart and reading what had happened to each was gripping. There are multiple love stories playing through out this book and each one is different from the last. I enjoyed reading this book since it tied in very closely with the previous book, White Dawn, and explained why Swift Foot did what he did.  If you have read the first book in the series I strongly recommend reading this one soon after.

White Dawn by Susan Edwards

White Dawn
Emily Ambrose is abandon by her parents in the wilds, and she witnesses their deaths shortly after. Trying to find her way back to the mission an Indian saves her from wild animals. After being abandon yet again, she is found by a trapper John Cartier. John vows to keep his emotions in check until Emily comes to him out of love. When it becomes clear the Emily is no longer safe at John's home they journey to the Mission in hopes of making everything better. With so many secrets of the past Emily must decide whom to place her trust in.

This is the first book in the White series and was heart rendering. There are many horrible things that happen to Emily that I began to wonder if she could find happiness. The beginning of the story was semi confusing since its not clear at first who the main characters are going to be. I enjoyed this book and it was a wonderful start to a great series. I would recommend this book to any one who can feel for the characters within the pages.

White Wind by Susan Edwards

White Wind

When Sarah's guardian makes it clear that she will pay for her mothers mistakes, she sets off in search of her birth father whom she was told was Indian. Golden Eagle has saved her once before so when their paths cross again he believes that it is the will of the Spirits that he have her. The only thing that stands in the way of their happiness is Golden Eagle is arranged to marry a woman from another tribe. They now must both find a way to be together and conquer the up coming darkness.

This is the fourth book in the White series and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It takes place on the planes in the time of the Indian before the wars. This book had an underlying mystery and a lot of suspense. The ending really through me threw a lop because I was not expecting it at all. This series is heart gripping and wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a great series that will capture your heart.

White Deception by Susan Edwards

White Deception: Book Ten of Susan Edwards' White Series
Mattie Edwards, the daughter of Star Dreamer, not only lost her eye sight in a fire that claimed her new husband but also lost the gift of sight past down through generations. Now her sight has suddenly come back but all Maddie sees is death and hatred. Reed has traveled a long ways to find the man responsible for killing his wife, now he almost has him. When he is charged with taking care of Mattie everything he ever believed starts to change, but when bad things start to happen to his new love he must face his past in order to save their future.

This book is number ten in the White series and did not disappoint. Although everything seemed to happen at once it was still a good book. This book depicts some of the hardships of being born of both races and how the characters were able to over come some of the obstacles. I really hope that the author continues writing in the White series, there seems to be so much more material and romances for many future novels.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book for review from NetGalley.

White Dove by Susan Edwards

White Dove: Book Nine of Susan Edwards' White Series

White Dove knows she is destined to marry a great warrior worthy of her, so she has become the best warrior she can be. Jeremy Jones lost his heart to Dove the first time they met, and is constantly trying to catch her attention which sometimes leaves him in trouble. Now Jeremy decides to train to be a warrior among the Sioux so that he may be everything that Dove wants, even if shes not sure herself.

This is the ninth book in the White Series. The characters in this book were mentioned in previous books and it was fun to see how things worked out for multiple characters that I already had read about. I am really starting to enjoy this series even though I am reading them out of order. These books are about Indians and takes place before the war between them and whites. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a series were the books all intertwine and connect.

White Wolf by Susan Edwards

White Wolf: Book Five of Susan Edwards' White Series
Jessie and her brothers are going on the Oregon Trail to California, they are all set to leave until their wagon master breaks his leg. White Wolf reluctantly takes up as wagon master, but he has one rule, no unmarried females may go. Jessie can't stand the new wagon master and so she disguises herself as a boy so she may stay with whats left of her family. Now she just needs to keep Wolf from knowing her secret, and stealing her heart. Wolf knows that there's something up with Jessie but when he discovers who she is he resolves to keep his distance.

This book is number five in a series of twelve and was very captivating. I haven't read the first four books but now I'm hoping that they are as enjoyable as this book was. All the trouble that Jessie gets into made me laugh aloud many of times and the way Wolf reacted made me want to shake him. I didn't want to put the book down at all and when I did, I wondered what the ending would be like. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romance and who can enjoy a book enough to feel for the characters.

Improper Relations by Juliana Ross

Improper Relations

Hannah is an unpaid companion to her late husbands aunt. When she witnesses her husbands cousin Leo involved with a maid she becomes instantly curious, since women are not supposed to enjoy this activity. Leo decides to educate Hannah on how women can enjoy themselves during love making, and although he is younger than her, he becomes attracted to her. When they are caught Hannah is sent away and now Leo must choose his fortune or her.

This book is like a diary of Hannah's road to self pleasure and is very well written. Although some words were very crude it was an excellent read and somewhat informative. The epilogue was very good and I really enjoyed learning what became of these characters and how their lives ended up. This was a short sweet love story and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys short romance novels.
