Cheyenne Red Wolf’s first day of class teaching Native American Studies went well considering she was a red haired, white skinned, blue-eyed woman with freckles. That is, it went well until her boss shows up expecting to see a Native American teaching the class.
Azrael Thunder Horse was beyond angry. Thinking he had been duped by the woman he tries to fire her. That would be an easy task if Cheyenne wasn’t so smart as well as qualified for her position. Azrael being completely and utterly attracted to her isn’t helping the matter.
While Cheyenne thinks he is an arrogant, overbearing jerk, she can’t help but feel an unbelievable attraction to him. She was raised more Native American than most of the students on the reservation she teaches. He is everything her heart wanted when she was a young girl and she holds fast to those dreams as a woman. Now can she make him see she isn’t just another white woman wanting a tussle with the real-deal Native American? Or will his resistance to her cause her to walk away from a lifelong dream?
A wonderfully written novel by Fran Lee, Woman on Fire had me hooked from the moment I started and I was unable to put the book down until I read it from cover to cover. As always with Ms. Lee, the love scenes between the couple are so vivid it’s like you are actually in their shoes (or bed - whichever case). The plot moved right along, no hang-ups and no interruptions. It’s no wonder she continues to be one of my favorite authors.
