A decadent-looking savage has captured Francesca DuVall and her brother, Marsh. Now she must spend every waking moment planning an escape from the camp of the brutal savages. What she doesn’t count on is the powerful draw of desire interfering with her scheme.
Ethan Gray is a curator at a national museum in Washington, D.C. . . . most of the time. But when he travels through time to help his beloved People, he becomes Meko, leader of the most revered and feared tribe of the plains, the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers.
Their worlds are decades apart, yet Meko can’t resist the dark beauty he kidnapped during a raid. He has many battles to fight, but none more crucial than capturing Cesca’s heart forever.
Where the Rain is Made by Keta Diablo is a hot and spicy romance novel soaked in history and mysticism, which immediately gripped my attention and had me anticipating the turn of each page until the very end! I admit I’m a sucker for a good love story, but Where the Rain is Made was much more than a sappy tale of star-crossed lovers with an exciting sex scene or two. This book is filled with love and hate, life and death, and choices not one of us would ever want to make.
Ethan Gray was an Assistant Curator for one of the most admirable museums in the country. He worked with Native American artifacts, providing the museum identification and history of each piece along with stories about the people and their ways. Being a Cheyenne he grew up being told the tales of his ancestors lifestyles and traditions. But he had also lived and breathed this lifestyle, just as they had so many years ago. Ethan was a time wanderer. The Cheyenne Sacred Council had sought out Ethan to aid them in setting things right with the past, sending him back in time to watch over his people and lead them safely and fiercely through their hardships. He had successfully completed his missions time after time, never faltering from the sacred Council’s plan, but this time would be different. She would be there, and she would change everything.
Mr. Duvall had caught himself a bit of the gold fever and decided to move his family, daughter Francesca and son Marshall, from the civilized comforts of New York city to the untamed plains of Colorado. This was not the white man’s land but that didn’t stop them from stealing it away, ravaging through the native’s villages destroying their livelihood and annihilating the people. The Cheyenne were left no choice but to defend themselves, fighting fire with fire they attacked the white man with full force. Soon Francesca’s world would be torn apart as she and her brother were taken captive by the Cheyenne dog soldiers. Why had their lives been spared? They were of no use to these cold and brutal savages yet they were shown mercy and brought to live among the people in their village. As much as Cesca struggled with her new way of living, she couldn’t fight the heavy desire she felt whenever she looked upon or even thought of I Am The Wind. The connection they shared was intense and went beyond the lustful thoughts that constantly ran through both of their minds. There was no going back now.
I highly recommend this book! The tension between the two main characters was incredible and had me craving the pages to come! There was so much emotion in this story and I sincerely felt for each of the characters and what they had been through. I am hoping and wishing there will be a sequel soon!! Loved Where the Rain is Made!
