Product Description

Product Description

He took her hostage—could he ever let her go?

Shulamith St. John had lived with the threat of kidnapping for most of her life, but that didn't make her situation when it happened any less terrifying. Especially as she knew what her kidnapper did not—that her father, the ruthless lumber baron Cordwainer St. John, would not pay one cent of ransom for her.

Johnny Winterhawk didn't believe that—but he was no ordinary kidnapper. He didn't want money, he wanted to protect his tribal lands from her father's chainsaws. And then, it seemed…he wanted her.

Shulamith responded to her captor's touch with a hunger that made her feel she could trust him with her life. Their deep passion shook her, body and soul. And that was the most terrifying thing of all…

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it in one day. A great read. 8 July 2013
By Holly
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this book in one day! Couldn't put it down. As always, Alexandra Sellers creates rich characters that you don't want to let go of at the end of the book. She also adeptly blends social and political commentary into her novels, making them a rich and intelligent read with a deeper level than I find in most fiction.

As another reviewer commented, it's a bit awkward at first to see the protagonist falling in love with her kidnapper, but Alexandra handles it well and before long you'll be rooting for the couple. Smith goes through a deep personal transformation throughout the course of the novel, learning much about herself in the process and coming out a different person in the end.

I also loved the surprise guest appearance by two of her characters from Fire in the Wind, another great read.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable book, and I highly recommend it. Despite the book being 30 years old at the time I read it, I don't think it's content is dated in the least.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read 31 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I read the blurb about this book I imagined, like all other native American novels that it would be set in the 1800s. In fact it was a modern read set in Canada. Despite this it turned out to be a wonderful love story. Lumber bosses daughter Shulasmith (Smith) and architect Johnny Whitehawk were characters written in great depth. I would definitely recommend this...

this is one of the first books I read about Canadian Indians or should I say native Canadians? I found it pretty intriguing, exciting and the descriptions of the homes that were built in this story, pretty awesome! I wouldn't mind having a house like that! The story was awesome too, interesting concept of love?

5.0 out of 5 stars Tis a season of storm..,that true love exists 4 Sep 2013
By dmcrane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an amazingly AWESOME BOOK. Racism is only a word. Misunderstanding what truly lies in a love meant to be. But the unknown truth that really remains is when real love appears and fear along with judgement occupies scares the he'll out of a soul reminds me of a quote learned in early years of my raising. "If you love set it free if meant to be it will be." A TRULY MUST READ.

3.0 out of 5 stars FOR THE INCREDIBLY SHARP,REAL AND IMPORTANT USE OF CANADIAN HISTORY, THIS BOOK IS ONE I RECOMMEND.... 9 Dec 2013
By April A. Renn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Season of Storm by Alexandra Sellers was originally written as a Harlequin Superromance. It has since been re-released. One of the hallmarks (and highlights) of Sellers’ writing is the use of place and real situations in her books. There really was a logging dispute and many of the attitudes, fears, and actions regarding Native Canadians in this book are true to life. Major kudos to Sellers in the way she highlights Canadian social issues through her writing. For this alone, the book was a wonderful read.

Shulamith and Johnny, on the other hand, were deeply flawed characters. Both exhibit a tendency toward “too stupid to live” behavior. On Johnny’s part, that he was involved in the kidnapping attempt at all feels horribly out of character given the rest of the story. Shulamith exhibits classic Stockholm Syndrome in some of her actions, but at least it is clear that she admired Johnny before the kidnapping and really was not interested in pursuing the logging her father wanted.

A lot of the plotline strictly between Shulamith and Johnny stretched credulity. But the politics, the police actions were extremely well-written.

Where this book shone was in the emotional struggles Johnny went through. Like Native Americans, Native Canadians had to deal with (and still do) a lot of issues including prejudice and citizenship. Sometimes, it included making choices about their heritage much the way Johnny struggled with his choices and needs and his desire for Shulamith. This book was a stark reminder that while a lot of this is often romanticized, these are very real situations.

Because of inconsistency and certain character behaviors, this book was not as good as it could have been. For the incredibly sharp, real, and important use of Canadian history, this book is one I recommend

The characters were breathtaking and Johnny showed his love in a lot of different ways. Smith would have seen it if she looked but she was too busy running away.
