passionate romance with intensity and emotional connection between its characters, and exciting adventure This is my fourth book by Jenna Kernan, and she hasn t let me down yet She takes me back to the 19th century, when the American West was still young, and where a man or a woman proves his or her mettle against the unforgiving wilderness, and the dark heart of humanity of all colors and creeds.What stands out in this romance was its hero, Troy Troy Price is a man of mixed blood His mother was of the proud Cherokee people, one of the five civilized tribes They lived next to whites and held similar beliefs, but when gold is found in the ground beneath their land, they were uprooted and forced on the Trail of Tears Even though Troy s father was a white man Irish , he was deemed not good enough for his young lover, Rachel Since the tragic end of their love affair, Troy has sworn to stay away from white women He couldn t bear being rejected again, or causing the despair that loving an Indian would bring to her I loved Troy, for the man he was He was a mover and a shaker, and a man of deep integrity I loved his ability to survive in the wild, and his way of looking deep inside a person and seeing not who they seemed to be, but who they were at their heart Many times, I told Eleanor if she thought she wasn t good enough for Troy, I d be happy to take him off her hands Troy was definitely my kind of hero When he shows up at the docks to pick up his latest group of scientists for a tour up the Yellowstone, he sees a beautiful, elegant white lady who is the only one of the group to survive a Cholera outbreak He refuses to take her, until she questions his honor No man likes having his honor questioned And for a half breed with little to his name, his honor is his prized possession He reluctantly takes on the redheaded greenhorn, who knows about as much about surviving in the wilderness as he does of navigating the ballrooms and parlors of Boston Troy is convinced that Eleanor Hart will come to her senses when she gets a small taste of frontier life, but she proves to havemettle than he expected.Eleanor comes off as being very ignorant and closed minded She has lived in a smaller world than she realized, raised by bigots and social snobs who know only about power and status Her parents loveless marriage and procession of lovers is the model for what she can expect for the marriage she agreed to contract in exchange for this trip out West to paint wildlife She really doesn t want that future, but how can she go back on her word I never disliked Eleanor, who Troy calls Lena, even though she makes some very thoughtless, prejudiced comments to Troy, pouring salt into his wounds about being treated like less than a man because of his Cherokee blood I could see she wasn t a bad person, just a person who had no real understanding of what makes a man or woman honorable or worthwhile It s not race or heritage, or about money or status It s about integrity and grit This trip shows her exactly what she needs to learn She did frustrate me as she continued to hold on to her ideas about the rightness of the society she was raised in However, I could see that Troy and this trip out West had awakened the woman she was meant to be, and I cheered her on.This novel touched me on an emotional level, and I also loved the action and adventure as Troy and Lena face life in the wilderness The ending had me on the edge of my seat, and I hoped that Troy and Lena would fight for each other, and the life they could have together I knew that being together on their own terms not society s was the right choice for both, but they had to come to that conclusion for themselves And Kernan doesn t take it easy on the reader as you see just how painful that choice will be for Lena and in ways I didn t imagine initially.Because this book gave me pretty much what I wanted in a book when I read it, I am rating it 4.5 5.0 stars.Recommended Casting Rachelle Lefevre as Eleanor Lena Hart image error Joe Lando as Troy Price image error Recommended to western historical romance lovers 2.5 stars Spoiled rich girl has half Cherokee Indian guide her up the Missouri river so she can paint wildlife The heroine was spoiled, insensitive and only came to her senses once she thought the hero was dead The hero of the book was awesome however and is the only thing that kept this from being a wallbanger. I liked this historical romance that showed struggles on the American frontier but too much of the story was spent on the impossibility of a relationship between a rich pampered white female and poor rugged half breed male Artist Eleanor convinces half Cherokee Troy to guide her through wilderness so she can paint wild animals. Awww It was so amazing A one of a kind story So glad for once the girl is such a strong character, even though she doubted things. Enjoyed.not as spoiled as one would assume Put on her big girl pants and mustered Historical Romance1840 Yellowstone ValleyEleanor Hart is the daughter of a wealthy industrialist She is also an artist that longs to capture in paint the raw power of the vanishing West She is also getting a chance to be freed from her gilded cage For that to happen she must agree to her father s conditions He will fund the painting expedition on the condition she agrees to marry a man of her father s choosing when she returns Troy Price is a rugged Cherokee trapper that is also her guide Historical Romance1840 Yellowstone ValleyEleanor Hart is the daughter of a wealthy industrialist She is also an artist that longs to capture in paint the raw power of the vanishing West She is also getting a chance to be freed from her gilded cage For that to happen she must agree to her father s conditions He will fund the painting expedition on the condition she agrees to marry a man of her father s choosing when she returns Troy Price is a rugged Cherokee trapper that is also her guide He is impressed with Eleanor s spunk As they journey father along, he transforms her longing for fame into a yearning for a forbidden passion, freedom and adventure Even though Troy knows that her father and her promise wait for her return he can t help loving her He also knows that he will never be accepted into her world of privilege This is story that takes the reader on an amazing journey It keeps twisting and turning and will have the reader loath to put the book down until they finish it The characters bring the era to life for the reader and will have them thinking about it long after they finish the book This brings the series to a very nice close It also shows another part of the west that proves to be very interesting Lena is a force to be reckoned withAnother page turner that I found difficult to put down This book is a great escape for a few days.Really enjoyed the banter and tension between Lena and Tory Two characters that keep the reader guessing throughout the whole book I also, like that Lena was able to stand up to social convention and be herself Tory, as troubled as he is, is still a strong man both physically and emotionally.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntari Lena is a force to be reckoned withAnother page turner that I found difficult to put down This book is a great escape for a few days.Really enjoyed the banter and tension between Lena and Tory Two characters that keep the reader guessing throughout the whole book I also, like that Lena was able to stand up to social convention and be herself Tory, as troubled as he is, is still a strong man both physically and emotionally.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review Book three in the Trail Blazers series but the first book by this Author that I have read it is well written and a story that kept me turning pages What a sick man Eleanor Hart s father was I am glad she meet Cherokee trapper Troy Price I enjoyed the ending I would recommend this book I will be reading the first two books I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Like the characters and storyline Eleanor is running from her high society upbringing for a life withsubstance and meaning Troy believes her to be just another spoiled, pampered girl with no real idea of how rough life in the wild can be Loved to ride and adventure with them, but I thought the ending could have shown them settled for a true HEA. This was such a moving romance set in the 1840s in the wild frontier with marvelous characters both the hero and the heroine are strong willed people just what is needed going into the wilderness This book really is a must read beautifully written one of the better western I have read I highly recommend this one I did receive a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.
