5.0 out of 5 stars MORE THAN JUST A GOOD READ April 18 1998
By S. Chris Mikalson - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Who of us hasn't, at one time or another, lost trust in those we love most? How we deal with that feeling of betrayal can overshadow our lives. This is the theme of Maggie Shayne's "Badland's Bad Boy"; how to trust, who to trust. Do you receive trust and then return it, or does it have to be given unconditionaly in order that it be returned? Taylor McCoy is a Comanche who was raised in a white society. Given away by her birth mother, lied to by her adoptive parents, she trusts nothing but her own gut instincts. When she is hired to excavate a Comanche site at Emerald Flat, she meets Wolf Shadow who claims to be a spirit from the past. He tells her that she is desecrating sacred ground and must stop. Wes Brand is a half-breed Comanche who has been raised by the Brands. He has become close to Turtle, an ancient shaman, and has learned from him the legend of Wolf Shadow and Little Sparrow. He has dressed as Wolf Shadow, hoping to drive Taylor McCoy from the site. But as he stays close to her, she wins his heart. Should he drive her from the site and save the land, as the old shaman has asked, or should he tell her the truth and betray his friend, Turtle? This is a beautifully, touching story of love in two realms, earth and spirit. Maggie Shayne has delved into the dark recesses of man's troubled psyche, pulling forth the emotions he conceals, exposing them to the light of truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely good! May 7 2014

This story was not only a extremely good romantic book, but it was also very educational, too. I found myself so mesmerized by the Indian cultures, as well as their way of life. I've always felt the same exact way, whenever I've read books written by Kathleen Eagle, too. I especially love 'Turtle' what a fascinating man. He's the type of person I could sit down and talk with for hours on end, and never become bored. Of course I feel that way about all of the older generation. They lived long fascinating lives, and they have seen so many things throughout their lifetimes that we'd never know about unless we are willing to sit down and listen.

I am really and truly starting to fall in love with this series, as well as with all the characters involved. They're not a bunch of wealthy people setting out to set the world on fire; they're just a bunch of close nit family members who choose to stand behind one another 100%, through thick and thin. IMO- It's the way all family should be.

I would highly recommend not only this book, but this whole series. They are all filled with lots of romance, a heart heart-break or two, fun filled mystery, and exciting suspense. But most of all they show a close nit family, that really and truly love & respect one another for who they really are, good or bad.

Meet Wes Brand, half Comanche, trying to get in touch with his spiritual nature with the help of Turtle, an old shaman medicine man of the tribe. Enter one lovely archeologist, who is also Comanche but was not raised in the Comanche culture, who also happens to be digging on site of an ancient burial place, looking for proof that it exits there. Legends say that Wolf Shadow, a powerful shaman from the past buried his lost love Little Sparrow before they could marry on this land. Their spirits are forever cursed to this world until the ancestress of both find each other and fall in love to release Wolfe Shadow and Little Sparrow spirits to move on to the Great Spirit in the sky. Want to know more?? READ the book!! I loved it myself and author Maggie Shayne captures your imagination right fri

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read. April 10 2005
By J COFFMAN - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a fantastic book, 3rd. in the Brand family saga. As each story is told, we learn more about the Brands, which is fabulous, but without loosing anything about the main couple in each story.

Wes is a half brother to the rest of the Brands. Their father had an affair with Wes's mother a Comanche. Wes was bought into the family by his stepmother when his own died & made to feel a part of the family. But for a long time there was something missing & that was his heritage.

Taylor, like Wes was not bought up in the way of the Comanche. She was adopted when her mother died & bought up with white Americans. Wes & Taylor learn about their heritage with a Comanche shaman, Turtle.

This is turning into one fantastic series of books the more I read each new one. Next is book 4 Ben & Penny's story in "The husband she couldn't remember".
