HEART OF THE HUNTER, by Madeline Baker, takes up the bulk of this book. The description from Baker's website: "Kelly McBride, the owner of a Montana ranch, is torn between two lovers: a Lakota spirit warrior who guards gold, and his flesh-and-blood descendent. There seems no way possible for Kelly and the ghostly spirit to make a life together. Lee Roan Horse, an embittered ex-con, descends on the ranch to steal the gold of his ancestors, but finds in Kelly the love of a lifetime that he's afraid to acknowledge."
I honestly thought that this was her first book. One minute she loves Lee, then she doesn't, then he loves her, then he doesn't. Sentences were constantly repeated. It appeared as though the author was told to keep adding details to the story but there was nothing new so she rehashed the same words. I expected more from this romance.
I felt there wasn't any chemistry between Lee and Kelly, ditto for the ghost and Kelly. I love time travel and paranormal books but I didn't enjoy HEART OF THE HUNTER; this is an anthology but I didn't read the other two stories. I am assuming the others that read ENCHANTED CROSSINGS read all three romances and rated the book accordingly. I may have given it more stars if I did.
According to Madeline Baker's website: Cerridwen Press is suppose to be releasing this title on it's own in January of 2010. Instead, if you want to read a wonderful time travel romance about the Lakota, try Judie Aitken's A LOVE BEYOND TIME.
