4.0 out of 5 stars A action-packed, sensual continuation of an exciting series. 27 April 2000
By "car6146614" - Published on
Bayleigh "Bay" Stewart is the sensitive middle daughter of Rip Stewart. She can't shoot or fight like either of her sisters, but she can balance the books and be a right-hand to her elder sister, Sloan, who will inherit the plantation upon his death. When Bay is captured by the Comanche, it is Long Quiet, a half-breed who's had feelings for her ever since he saw her back East, who finds her. He saves the life of a Comanche chief who has enslaved her and is invited to his village. Bay has been with the Comanches for three years, and in that time she has become strong, but she still dreams of her dream man, Jonas. But it's not Jonas who strikes a fire in her blood. Bay is given to Long Quiet as a gift and she is fearful at first, but under his gentle hand, she opens her heart to him. When someone tries to kill her, they escape, and though their feelings for each other are plain, there is one problem: he wants to stay in Comancheria; Bay wants to go back home. With a heavy heart, Bay goes home, only to discover that her father is in financial trouble and it's up to her to fix it, by marrying Jonas. There is one complication, though: she's pregnant. Long Quiet comes back into her life and agrees to marry her (Rip's shotgun was a great motivator), but he believes the only reason she wanted him was because he was rich, and the story continues to unfold. I like the way the author revealed the layers of Bay's acquired strength and delved into the relationship with her father and elder sister. The way she managed to show Long Quiet's "uncivilized" Comanche side was interesting, too. She also had me guessing as to how she'd resolve the conflict between Bay and Long Quiet. This was my favorite book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Review of Comanche Woman 9 Sep 2003
By Robin Wilson - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading several bad reviews of Comanche Woman by Joan Johnston, I felt compelled to contradict them. It is the second book in her Sisters of the Lone Star series, the first being Frontier Woman, the third being Texas Woman. I enjoyed Comanche Woman from beginning to end.
Comanche Woman continues the story of the second Stewart sister, Bayleigh, who is abducted by an Indian at the end of Frontier Woman. In that novel, she is a meek, quiet young woman who is often overlooked by her overbearing father and when compared to her forceful older and younger sisters. The reader is left wondering how gentle Bayleigh will survive her capture and endure her subsequent life with the Comanche.
Joan Johnston is known for creating vivid characters and thoughtful introspection. She certainly does not disappoint in her character development of Bayleigh Stewart, who is called Shadow by her Comanche captors. Shadow has learned to put aside all that she has known as the wealthy daughter of a plantation owner in order to survive her harsh new life as a slave to Many Horses.
Unbeknownst to Bayleigh, someone has been relentlessly searching for her since her capture three years ago: the half-breed Long Quiet, also called Walker Coburn. Torn between two worlds, he has loved Bayleigh in secret since he saw her years ago at a ball in Boston. Since she no longer is part of that world, he longs to rescue her and give her the love that he has held only for her.
Their journey to each other is tempestuous and filled with the emotion that one comes to expect from Joan Johnston. The reader genuinely comes to love and care for these characters; this particular reader actually sighed with disappointment when the novel came to its poignant conclusion. (I didn't want to say goodbye to Bayleigh and Long Quiet!) Share their journey also by reading Comanche Woman. You will not be sorry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ugh. 24 Sep 2007
By L. Donnelly - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was painful to finish. I kept hoping that it would get better (it didn't). As others have mentioned, there were too many storylines that were completely undeveloped, apparently in a deliberate attempt to get you to read prequels and sequels.

However, the worst part of the book for me was the "character" of Bayleigh Stewart, a/k/a "Shadow." Her character was completely annoying, as she seemed to behave completely inconsistently and irrationally. For example, when a misunderstanding arises between Bayleigh and the hero, Long Quiet, rather than explain her situation and clear up all the problems, Bayleigh keeps "forgetting" to talk to him, or missing her opportunity. Very clumsily handled overall; none of the characters are believable in their motivations or behaviors.

Also, no author should use the word "manroot" in what is intended to be a serious love scene. I actually laughed out loud.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just didn't draw me in 30 Dec 2005
By Country Bumpkin - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I tried to like this book, but I felt like I came into it with the story already half told. Perhaps I should have read Frontier Woman first, since it told of Bay's kidnapping and her history. I just didn't feel like I got to know the characters; they seemed 2 dimensional. It also didn't make sense that Long Quiet was so in love based upon his glimpse of Bay in Boston. I wanted to know why he loved her so. I found this book hard to finish.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably bad. 13 Jun 2003
By Tracy L. Moss - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I started out reading "The Cowboy" trilogy which was an interesting enough read. So I figured I'd check out the prequel and see where these characters came from. I started with this book "Commanche Woman", and it was so bad, it is embarrassing. This is the type of book that makes me ashamed to read Romance. I didn't even finish it. The heroine's kidapping situation and treatment were completely implausible. The hero's bizaare infatuation/love for this woman was unfounded and made him, pretty much a weirdo in my opinion. I really enjoyed the other three books I read by this author (although I see a marked improvement in her writing with each book); But this one is for the dogs...potty training them.
