About the Author

Karen Kay, whose great-grandmother was a Choctaw Indian, is honored to be able to write about something so dear to her heart, the American Indian culture. “With the power of romance, I hope to bring about an awareness of the American Indian’s concept of honor, and what it meant to live as free men and free women. There are some things that should never be forgotten.” Find Karen Kay online at www.novels-by-karenkay.com. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The tone of the book is a lot darker than Kay's previous works which personally appeals to me. As you know reading romance novels is a departure for me, the reasons why I will not go into today.
Kay however fills her novels with interesting snippets of American Indian culture. And her heroine has a charm and realism to her that the majority of other romance writers miss. She is intelligent, articulate and she knows that her romance may not work and she knows and understands the reasons why.
The darker themes touched on in the book add to the realism, and don't skirt around the darker parts of history. Adding to my enjoyment of the book. Life isn't plain sailing and neither is love.
In whole it is a refreshing book. One I blame for me turning into work bleary eyed, after sitting up all night reading it. Yes it was that good I couldn't put it down.
In summary go read it. It is so far above the run of the mill romances that flood the market where some billionaire/prince falls in love with a plain shop girl who more often is devoid of personality and takes her away from the cruel world she knows (not actually that cruel she only seems to work one morning a week and has a house, car and can go shopping 3 times a week. Not to mention go on ridiculously expensive holidays)

All my life I have felt the Indians were taken advantage of only because they were misunderstood and because the white race felt they were better than the Indians. The white man stole everything from the moment they coveted the land of the Indians.
I also hated that the white race felt that an Indian and a white woman couldn't fall in love and marry. I can tell you without any issues that had I lived back then I would have been honored to have an Indian fall in love with me.
In real life is am married to a man who is part Cherokee and we are very much in love, have been married for 41 years.
Please if you love Indian Romance stories you'll love this one. Please read it.
Starr as Ruby Slippers
The story continues where Black Eagle Leaves off. Sarah has just survived a fall into the river and is found by a Seneca Warrior named White Thunder he is on a mission of revenge. He nurses Sarah back to health. In doing so they find an attraction to each other that is forbidden by society. They also know they have to finish their missions. Sarah to find her ward and to find justice and White Thunder to seek the vengence against the man who killed his wife and child. Each not knowing their paths were meant to cross and together as one to seek justice and vengence.
The story tells not just a love story betweeen Seneca Warrior and white woman, but also gives a historical view of how not only the Seneca but all tribes lived and ruled their people.
Karen Kay/Gen Bailey has written another terrific story of our countries past and the people who lived there.
