Product Description

Miss Elizabeth Powell, a recent graduate of Miss Cowperth's School for Young Ladies in San Francisco, arrives in the wilds of Washington Territory determined to find her missing father. But when handsome Isaac Thompson throws her over his broad shoulder and carries her off, all her plans dribble away in the wake left behind Isaac's black canoe. Haida Indian, Isaac Thompson seeks to restore his family's tarnished name and right the wrongs done to them. But will his mistaken capture of the beautiful firebrand Elizabeth Powell divert him from the deadly aim of his life: to wreak revenge and destruction on his enemies?

5.0 out of 5 stars Vastly entertaining 3 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this. So far I have read it through twice. Elizabeth Powell is a nice, well brought up girl who knows very little about life. Her father left her mother when Elizabeth was small and didn't come back. Her mother died, and she has been raised by her Aunt Elizabeth. She comes to Olympia to join her aunt and her aunt's new husband, from a genteel school and immediately gets captured by mistake, by Haida Indians on a revenge mission. What follows is a classic trek through the wilderness, ending up at the Haidan village of the captors. Meanwhile, the chief captor, Isaac Thompson aka Fights all with wealth, becomes rather interested in Elizabeth.
This is not a sloppy tale. One or two things don't make sense but it is vastly entertaining. Isaac Thompson is handsome and brilliant and Elizabeth is very likeable. There is a fair amount of humour. Check out when Elizabeth gives Isaac a new name accompanied by a dance. He is not pleased. Aunt Elizabeth Butler is funny too, especially when Isaac wants her to stand up in the canoe like a chief.
Don't get me wrong; there is tragedy too, but I found this to be one of the best Western love stories I have read. I get so tired of stunningly beautiful heroines with hair like flame and eyes like limpid pools. Elizabeth is obviously a pretty girl but with spirit and humour too.
I loved this. Very good descriptions of Indian village life too. I almost felt I was there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Northern Nights by Theresa Scott. 9 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WOW, such a detailed, intricate and intriguing novel. Quite different from any Indian themed novels I have read in the past. At first I thought 'What have I got here? A female character that irritated the hell out of me, then Indians with two names each and at times 3...Yes, 3.... To keep up I had to write them all down (might be an age thing here!). But, it sorted itself out, or should I say I sorted myself out.... I couldn't put it down. Quite an adventure, not only for the Author, her characters but also for the readers. LOVED IT.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Research always pays 13 Sep 2000
By K. Sprout - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One of the things I always expect from Ms Scott's novels is well-done research. This book lived up to my expectations. Whenever I can learn about another time or another culture while enjoying a good story at the same time, I turn the last page with a sigh of satisfaction.
While I thought the heroine was a little naive, the hero more than made up for it. He's courageous, honorable, and an all around hunk. I'm looking forward to Ms Scott's next release.

5.0 out of 5 stars "...Elizabeth and Isaac learn the true meaning of love..." 22 Jan 2012
By MNix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Miss Elizabeth Powell sets off to find her missing father. She never expects that as a graduate of Miss Cowperth's School for Young Ladies in San Francisco that she will wind up a captive in the backwoods of the Washington Territory. Young ladies will definitely not be carted off in a canoe, and definitely not attracted to the broad shoulders of her captor (Isaac).

The further that Elizabeth and her captors travel the more things seem to go wrong. But, will the best thing of all happen, in the end will Elizabeth find out what happened to her father and get the man she loves? Or will she fail to survive the adventure?

Northern Nights is a fast paced saga that will take you from false kidnapping, battles, and romance and finally into blossoming love before you are through. I feel that Northern Nights is a well written look at the Pacific Northwest as it was being settled. You will see prejudices not only with the white and red man but among the Native American tribes as well. Through it all you will see Elizabeth and Isaac learn the true meaning of love. I thoroughly enjoyed Northern Nights and think you will also.

4.0 out of 5 stars Northern Nights - a book worth reading. 23 Jan 2001
By "lilles" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Theresa Scott's "Northern Nights" is a fascinating look at the driving forces within the human soul. When we first meet the heroine, Elizabeth,she looks for answers to life's questions in a book of etiquette written by Emily Cowperth. A young lady, on the cusp of womanhood, Elizabeth has not yet had life experiences that test her strength or her resilience. That changes when she meets the hero, a Haida warrior, Isaac. Believing that she is the wife of a man guilty of killing an important chief from the village of Isaac's mother, he kidnaps her as part of a plan for vengeance his uncle has hatched up. Isaac has lived his life under the cloud of slavery and is determined never to allow himself, or his family to face that degradation again. He agrees to help his uncle in exchange for stature in his uncle's tribe. Something at this point, only his uncle is capable of giving him.
Elizabeth and Isaac's adventures lead to love.... Elizabeth must learn to face life in all its aspects, rely on her own strength to go forward and grow into true womanhood. Isaac once again battles the moniker of slave and it is not until he can banish that mark from his life that he will be free to love or care for Elizabeth.
This is a story of honor and courage, one you that will bring out the reader's emotions. This book is a sterling example of the themes of mercy and compassion that run through Theresa Scott's work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 30 April 2011
By LAS Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
True or False: love is the great equalizer? Can it really change a person's expectations and perspective? Or does it just open their eyes to a whole new world?

The Pacific Northwest in 1854 was hard, uncivilized territory. Cities were just sprouting, businesses were struggling to survive and cultures were clashing left and right. Native Americans were beginning to learn that working for the colonist was the only way to make a living. Sometimes it was fruitful and others times it was deadly.

An unexpected and untimely murder of a Native American worker begins this story that introduces us to Elizabeth Powell, a kind-hearted and well mannered young woman who lives her life according to the dictates of her etiquette books. In an attempt to bring the murderer to justice the local tribes send a cavalry of young warriors to capture and punish the culprit and his family.

Unfortunately for them, they took the wrong woman. Issac Thompson, the warrior leader, learns firsthand what a strong, rebellious, stubborn and lovely woman Elizabeth is and becomes her protector during their arduous journey to the Indian village. Elizabeth is drawn to Issac Thompson and relies on his strength and loyalty to keep her safe. Their time together becomes more and more personal and intimate until they are separated by tragic circumstances and differences of culture and beliefs.

This is such a heartbreaking and heartwarming story. It shows that no matter what the atrocities or circumstances, true love can carry a person through even the most grave of experiences. The love for an individual can open your mind and heart allowing you to accept what you never dared imagine.

Theresa Scott has written such wonderful romantic and suspenseful stories. This is the type of story that you will open and not put down until you have finished. The love, fear, passion and commitment between Issac and Elizabeth are what real romance is all about. What a great book! Don't miss it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Historcally rich with emotion 3 Feb 2013
By Laurie Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I picked up this novel looking for more of an epic read and I wasn't disappointed. It spans only months, but is rich in history, where tradition gets our hero and heroine in trouble more often than not. The attraction between Isaac and Elizabeth felt immediate and insurmountable and kept me turning page after page. The diverse characters gave the story even more depth. I feel like I understand what life in a Haida village is like and I applaud Ms. Scott's ability to portray this time period so well.
