3.0 out of 5 stars A great first half...but not Baker's best. Oct. 11 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story got off to an exciting start - Jenny Braedon has been the captive of an Apache tribe and forced to be the second wife of their chief, Kayitha. One day, Ryder Fallon, a half Cheyenne, is also captured by the same tribe and held in their camp to be tortured after he was caught leading an Army group through their territory. Ryder survives the torture and is forced to be the chief's first wife's slave. The depiction of the Apache life and the daily struggles that Jenny and Ryder faced seemed very real and compelling, and their blossoming relationship had me hanging on each page. However, once they escape the Apaches, the book really disappointed me. There are a series of misadventures that follow - to include coping with the fact that Jenny already is married to Hank Braedon and feels she must return to him. Some scenes just seemed pointless - such as when Ryder gets picked up by some bounty hunters and the whole matter is resolved by the end of the same chapter. Madeline Baker has a great writing style - she makes her characters seem very real. This book started out very promising, but just didn't hold me until the end. I found myself skimming over parts just to get the book over with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Adventure and Great Storyline June 30 2001
By Marina
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ryder Fallon and Jenny have both been captured by the Apache and resist assimilation into the tribe. Jenny was taken from a stagecoach while on her way to meet her husband. Jenny bribes the injured Ryder by taking care of him while he is recovering from severe injury by making him promise to take her with him when he is well enough to escape. During the months until the escape, Jenny learns that she is carrying the child of the Apache chief who captured her, a man she does not love. Her love for Ryder, however emerges and grows. When the night of escape arrives, Jenny goes into labor and Ryder delivers her son; however, he gives the child over to its father to save Jenny's life. The child's father, once he has his son, sets Jenny and Ryder free. What follows involves Jenny's plight to escape an unusual and eventually abusive relationship with her husband, her growing relationship with Ryder, and her turmoil as she tries to accept the loss of her first born child. The adventure is top notch and the love story is sound. Liked this book, so will look for the follow up "Chase the Wind."

This was wonderfully written. The book had it all. Captivating plot with outstanding characters. I loved it and will be looking for more of her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apache Runaway Dec 30 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was really impressed with this book...It kept you on your toes...I enjoyed it so much I read it in one setting...I'm usually a big Cassie Edwards fan...but I've decided to put my Cassie Edwards books aside and have ordered numerous Madeline Baker books...I am currently reading Chase The Wind which is a sequel to Apache Runaway...I'm sure I will enjoy Chase the Wind as much as I enjoyed Apache Runaway....
